Is the scale the same at Pop or more compact? What are your recs for preferred close to transport but quiet too? We are still napping age...

Thanks so much!
POP is a very compact resort. I don't think there is any area that is considered "far" by anyone. That being said, 2 years ago, we stayed in a preferred pool view room overlooking the Hippy Dippy. It was so loud and they movies ran late (after 11pm). For little ones who still nap and need to go to bed earlier, this may be an issue. In November, you may not have as much activity in the pool area, but it is definitely something to keep in mind. My favorite area is the 60s overlooking the lake/bridge and AofA.

I meant to post this earlier but was side tracked by life. The family and I were at Pop July 17-24. On our first day, we went to Target and bought a half gallon of milk for $2.39. Later, I needed to buy more milk and bought a half gallon at the food court for $2.99. I thought that a 60 cent difference was incredible. I was expecting it to be more.

The fridge in our room was not working and we had to request a medical fridge. DS is 13 months and drinks a lot of milk (and doesn't eat as well as I would like). This was considered "medically necessary". The new fridge didn't look like it would hold a gallon of milk, hence why I didn't buy a gallon to begin with.

Can I buy ponchos and a pen for autographs at the POP gift shop? Those are the only two things I haven't bought yet.

Also, DD wants a baby Simba, but we're not going to AK. Has anybody seen these at POP or a shop on MK or Epcot?

Yes! I saw them in the parks and our resort gift shop last year (ASMo). I know, because I had to sneak around to buy one for DD14...it was a surprise, and we were traveling alone. Not easy to do!
