Great info here. Thanks. Heading down in September. Reservation says preferred room... But I KNOW the wife would prefer quiet over anything else. If I want a lake view room - when do you suggest I make that request? Upon check-in? Or should I call POP now?

If you want to switch out of a preferred room, I'd do it as soon as possible. If they can't switch you, you'll be paying an upcharge for a room you don't even like as much as the cheaper rooms.

I'm a very light sleeper and have to wear ear plugs when travelling. We always stay at CR MK view above CM and we've never found it noisy. But DD wakes up every morning by 7am no matter how late we go to bed

We stayed at POP January "12 in a Standard Lake View Room and I was disappointed with all the sounds we could hear through the walls. We never had a problem with pool noise but we could hear toilets in the other rooms flushing, sneezing through the walls and talking. We are heading back this Nov. upgraded to CSR this time and hoping for better insulation. The noise was my biggest complaint at POP.

We stayed at Pop Christmas 2010 with a lakeview room in the 60s and LOVED it. Decided to split stay August 2011 with a preferred pool view room. BIG mistake...as others have stated people were in the pool until 1am and the movies by the pool were going until after 11pm. We could hear the movie clearly in our room. Unfortunately, my 6 year old couldn't sleep until almost midnight with the volume of the movie. We are going to try it again this August and have booked a standard view and requested the 60s high floor. Hopefully, we will enjoy it as much as we did the first time!

Is pool noise a seasonal issue or do the pools maintain their level of activity year round?

Just curious if the pool noise at POP is associated with JUST preferred pool rooms or all preferred rooms in general? Should one just avoid preferred completely, or is it safe to book preferred just sans pool preferred? A friend of mine who stays at POP every year said that a preferred room is usually closer to the bus and the food court.

We have a preferred handicap accessible room booked for November. I hope it is not a loud location my little one will not be able to sleep and then no one will sleep
