Yes, ponchos and pens are for sale in the Pop gift shop -- and just about any other shop on property. Ponchos are frequently held behind the counter, so if you don't see them, ask. With respect to pens, if you have Sharpies at home, just bring a few of those -- especially the retractable kind. They are best for autographs. The fancy pants pens sold in the gift shops are pretty, but a lot of the characters have trouble holding onto them.

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?
You can, but ponchos are MUCH cheaper at Wal-Mart or somewhere else besides Disney.

Whohoo! 40 days for us.

I wish the My Disney Experience app would work my Samsung tablet. I really don't want to take a laptop with us.

Sorry about your year. I love solo time in the parks, I've never done a solo trip but hubby loves to play golf and he doesn't ride the rollercoasters so we do our own thing and meet up later in the day.

Can anyone give me an estimate for cab fare from Pop to Chef Mickey's? We are going to try for a 7-7:30 ADR and don't want to have to rely on the bus.

Also, how do we go about arranging a cab? Do we ask someone at the desk to call one for us? Do we do it the night before, or in the morning? Sorry for all the questions. We are 3 adults who have literally never used a cab before.

Yes, the Disney ponchos are usually behind the counter but they only have the "good" (~$10) ponchos. If you're looking for the cheapy ones (small ones that fit in your pocket), you need to buy those at home (Walmart, Target, etc.). Keep in mind that if you tear a Disney poncho, they will replace it for free. Some people have reported that you need the receipt to do this but that wasn't our experience. We replaced 3 or 4 one week and I never had to show a receipt.

Thank you! I cannot find ponchos at WalMart. I read they were recalled. I could only find the Coleman's brand at Target, and they were $11/each.

We've always found ponchos at dollar stores.
