Mears

Has anyone used Mears to go to Universal for the day? Where do they pick you up?

In my experience, they pick up in the same area where DME stops.

Yes. It was there in the front where DME drops you off. Not where the park buses pick you up. We were told a bus or commuter van would be there, but it just ended up being a car. So be aware of that as there was some confusion because of that.

Thank you. That would've thrown me too!

Hi, I am staying at POP from Aug 26 thru Sept 1st. I read on dis boards about people checking into pop was offered LM room at AOA. Is this true? I figured since LM had no free dining they all went to pop. Can I put it down as a request or just take my chances when I get there. I am excited for both rooms, but LM was first choice! Thanks!

You can't request to get a room in another resort, only where you want in the resort you paid for. I seriously doubt you will get switched to AoA, especially since that will be a slower week.

When were those posts made? Do you know where you read them? Typically, you are only offered another resort when the one you are at is overbooked. It is possible that the posts you read are when the LM rooms opened earlier than expected and Disney offered them because they were vacant. The LM rooms sell out regularly. Your odds of being offered one are about the same as your odds of winning the lottery.

Just changed my ressie from AKL to POP (this will be our 3rd time at POP) - with the $$$ I'm saving - we'll be able to do something extra (like a tour and a couple of added table service meals and/or shopping ) - requested 50's, top floor -

Now if I can just decide on a costume for MNSSHP on Sept 17th everything will be set....anybody else going to the party that night?

I drink almond milk (allergic to dairy) and they didn't carry it anywhere on property as of Sept. 2012. I spoke with several chefs due to my long list of allergies and they all told me it was not standard for them to have it on hand. I wish they would offer that or coconut milk but soy milk (I'm also allergic to soy) is the only non-dairy milk that is readily available for purchase. Some TS restaurants have rice milk on hand. I'm having some shelf-stable almond milk shipped to me at POP for our upcoming trip.

hmmm I could be wrong but I thought for sure I saw Almond Milk at Animal Kingdom Lodge??? I mean if it due to allergies, it may be worth taking a bus from downtown disney over to AKL & stock up on some for the week.

Awesome

I fully endorse this idea. I would love to stay at a Deluxe, but... $350+ per night (give or take) is out of my price range.

The 17th is a week before I arrive @ POP.
