We requested 80's when I did online check in. I'm just working on the assumption I'm getting what I asked for so I can plan.

We just returned from our stay at Pop. We were there 9/25-10/5. I checked-in online and at that time, I made requests: 60's, lower floor, facing lake. We got all of our requests. Our room had a white bedspread with white circles on it...there was a small bedspread over the larger one with the old design on it. And we also had a very good Mousekeeper who kept our room looking awesome. She made towel animals almost every day and gave us extra bags of towels after we requested a few extra. I also had a working fridge. When we left for Disney, I wasn't sure we would have one in our room.

The CMs are great. The resort was very busy and the good court was mobbed every time we went. The food was pretty gross which was disappointing since I loved the food every time I went before. I didn't realize that they completely changed the menu. I knew there were changes but it seemed as if everything good was gone. After a few meals we just decided to eat elsewhere.

I encountered a lot of rude guests at the resort. It kind of ruined the experience for me. Maybe it was because it was busy or maybe it was just timing on my part (wrong place, wrong time). I just tried to ignore it and brush it off. One man came into the laundry while I was folding our clothes, was swearing, slamming things, and throwing a fit because there were no available machines. That was a little scary.

Pop was overall a good place to stay but I think next time I will try something new.

Any Poppers checking in this afternoon - sorry if you were in that HUGE line. The computers were down and the check ins were being handled manually. I was with the concierge. She said that Pop was expecting 700 checkins so not a great time for the system to go down. There were people along the entire front desk and completely filling in the "ropes". She said they are expecting 1000 next weekend due to the holiday. It's buzzing around here!

Thank you

I thought the one from last month was from one of the All-Stars and someone said it was going to be like that? I will look again.

We have 4 days left till check in I was reading somewhere about bb offers and if we did not receive offer in check in packet we could call a 4 digit number that started with 8 but now I cannot remember what it was. I have got to start writing the info down as I read it.

Finishing up with packing, finally! Does anyone know how hot or chilly it might get next week in the evening? I saw the extended forecast that someone posted somewhere, but I'm just not sure if we should pack pants? We stuck with all shorts and a sweatshirt per person. Also, I'm starting to get nervous about the crowds next Saturday and Sunday for Columbus Day...hopefully we'll be so much in the spirit of things that the crowds won't get to us.

Advice Please

I asked a question a day or two ago and got no replies and I now see why; I really messed up the wording very badly, so I'll try again.
Last year I stayed at the new AoA resort and we loved it. I could see POP across the lake and it looked like so much fun that I'd like to stay there on my next trip in Sept. 2014. I read that another member has already booked for Autumn 2014 and for the Holidays in 2014! Should I be booking for Sept. 2014 already? Does that month fill up early for POP? I was hoping to book around Feb. to March. TIA

I'm not an expert. Next week will be my first time staying on property. I booked Pop at the end of August for our trip October 9-13. Not very far in advance.

We arrive Nov. 30 at POP. So what are yalls suggestions for the bedt building/area?
Last time we stayed at pop we walked straight out of the lobby, past the pools, and our room was the last ground floor room on the right. I cant remember the bldg for the life of me!

We were at POP 9/21 to 9/28. This was our first stay at a value resort. The kids LOVED the themes/statues but the food court was AWFUL! Extremely slow workers, always a line, unclean and the food was gross.
On night 5 we walked to AoA for dinner. What a HUGE difference. The workers were SUPER friendly, it was very, very clean and the food was so much better.
