Twice now I've also had room assignments redone by the CM even after using online check-in, so you can get whatever service you need.
Sorry, I didn't mean for my post to imply that they don't welcome you or answer questions. This is our first time our trip is "ours", we've always went with family, so first time we are the "checkin" people instead of the standing there people After reading about online checkin, I decided it wasn't for us this time. Our room requests are really important to us, so I know I will try and have our rooms redone if they are not what we requested. So I don't want to hold up the line for those trying to grab and go. Also, since it's our "first" I kind of want to just do the full experience etc. as I don't know what kind of questions I'm going to have. I know our way around Pop, but we've never charged to the room, dining plan etc. So I need a little more hand holding I think

Best way to have your requests met. 1) submit them about 5 days out. 2) When you do online check in don't select the option that a ready room is a priority. 3) take a look at the resort map on here and make sure you don't have conflicting requests. For example, don't request the 80s or 90s and a lake view. They don't exist. And don't request a pool view in the 60s if you have booked a standard pool view.

Don't forget that the rooms are first come, first served. If someone gets there before you then you may not get your exact requests. Every time I've stayed at Pop I've always been in the 70's. No big deal to me, but I just want a clean and comfortable room.

We're going back to Pop! I switched us from ASMu to Pop for our quick three day trip. DD18 is thrilled because she loved Pop so much, and was actually disappointed when we upgraded to POFQ last trip to get the queen beds.

We are here now and loving it. Magic bands are working great. Didn't have a fridge but got one when requesting it. In 60s facing lake and its nice and quiet. Mouskeeeping is great. Not a fan of new RF mugs nor of the confusion with what's included in dining plan but overall great time for us

Playgrounds

We are going to be at POP Century in 16 days!
I would like to request a room close to a playground, but from what I understand, there are 2. I think I have seen pictures of both, and one of them looks like more fun for an almost 3 year old who loves to climb. But I don't know which one is which.
What building or section should I request to be closest to the best playground?

I only recall there being one playground. That one is closest to building 10. It is in between building 10 and the main building with the food court. Just steps away from the buses.

Edited to add:

From page 1 post #3
"Theres a playground in the 70s era behind Building #10 on the Classic Hall side"
