Don't stress over it, especially if there are things that are out of your hands. Stay strong and things will work out in the long run - don't they always?

For those that are wondering what the Illuminations view looks like. 2012, 50's Tramp building (too lazy to go look up the number!). This was the 3rd floor I think. AoA shouldn't block this at all, they were working, but AoA is actually to the left and wouldn't obstruct the view. It was nice to see at night, I could actually see it from the bed with the door open. (but as others have said, it's just a little perk, you can only see the high ones and it does not replace actually seeing it in person)





the daytime view (you can see the Little Mermaid section of AoA to the left)

When I was in high school my mom (single parent) got laid off a week before we went to Disney. I have to say that was the greatest summer of my life. We didn't get a lot of souvineers or eat at the best restaurants but the experience was GREAT. We shared QS meals, came up with games to play when waiting in line, stayed up all night together.

In the end it worked out. It will for you too. Have a blast!

Great deal. I agree we like Pop, we consider going back to a moderate, but we always revert back to Pop. We love it's compact size, theming and bus service.

Thanks. What a great memory.

We have the finances in line for the vacation, so we can have a good time. Just can't plan too much beyond that.

Yes things are out of my hands, well apart from trying to get into something new. However, I really like my job and boss. The cuts keep coming though. Just makes it unsettling waiting to see if the cuts will effect us. Got to me yesterday. Thanks Simba77.

Seems like your family knew what was important .. Sharing good times together and making those wonderful memories!

I hear you ... My company has certainly gone thru tough times and in June had another round of layoffs .. It was so sad seeing friends lose their jobs.. It has doubled the workload for many if us .. It was support staff that was hit. Hang in there, do your best and leave the job behind when you leave the office.

Just think, pop will be here before you know it!!

We saved $1037 with FD yesterday and switched to Pop from the AOA resort. I see the Pop pictures and get so excited about going. Pop looks awesome. This will be our first stay at Pop. The best part is that we get to bring our 4 year old to Disney for the first time. What a magical place. Life is great!!

Your family will have a wonderful time at POP. It is such a great place. My DD will not allow us to stay anywhere else. Also you can still walk over to AOA to look at the resort and eat, you just won't be able to swim there.

I am really not sure how this happened but yesterday I was between CBR and POP since that was the only options left... I booked CBR and my dad wanted to pay my deposit for my birthday since it is in October.. This morning I went to get on and my email showed two reservations... My dad said when he got on- POP was the one who showed up and that is what he paid for b/c he thought that was the one I wanted and sure enough, it is under My reservations and doesn't even show my CBR reservation... how did this happen?? do you think I should just stay there???


If so, what to request? My dad ended up contributing $500.00 for my birthday and the kids' Christmas so I only owe about $550.00 ( not too bad for a Disney trip) ( if I don't upgrade FD) help! what should I do?

We just booked 2 rooms at the Pop Century for Nov 9th - 16th. We are doing a 2 night room only stay and then the rest of the time with free dining. I made the ressies on my iPhone because are camping. Lol. That is 4 different ressies booked on an iPhone. I hope my kids appreciated what I so for them lol. This will be our second stay at Pop and I can't wait to go back! We had such a magical time there the first time!
