I brought a collapsible cooler, but they are now out of ice. Bell services is now holding onto our milk, yogurt, etc. until we check out. (We are doing a split stay at the Beach Club, and I was told that they replaced all the refrigerators there already.)

They did replace the pillows yesterday (in the 60's), and the boxes looked like they could've held small refrigerators. What a disappointment!

I may ask for that $15 credit if we have a problem getting ice. I just want it to keep some waters cold, but it does prevent us from buying milk for cereal, thus forcing us to spend more in the food court. What a stinker.

Thanks for any info you wonderful folks can provide
I found this If anyone is interested the window dimensions are:
37 3/4" X 59"

Ditto here for our trip that starts the 25th. Got all excited about Fp+ then the notion hit me that all it is doing is forcing me into a schedule and removing more flexibility from what is supposed to be vacation. I already hate that ADRs make me decide where to be 6 months in advance now this could lock you into not only parks but specific ride times. Think I'm gonna pass on FP+ in favor of going where the wind takes me : )

I agree! What if something unexpected comes up? Or someone has to go to the bathroom? Extreme planning isn't for everyone!

Question: is the coffee in Everything Pop still Nescafe? I know Joffrey's is making it's way in (if it hasn't already) and I'm just trying to decide if I'll be getting my coffee at the parks or in the morning!

Totally agree with you on that one! I mean, we like to plan a few things but that a bit too much...

Question : we are trying POP for the first time in a couple for months (always stayed at All Stars). How long of a walk is it from POP to AoA Food Court?

Thanks in advance!

Not far at all, just walk across the bridge over to AoA, you'll go past the Finding Nemo pool and then be at the AoA food court.

I was able to make FP+ choices but was unable to do anything with magic bands. We check in on September 17!

I did book FP+ for the rides we really wanted but were not willing to stand in line for (with a 3yo in tow). So hopefully it will work out for the better for us. I guess the thing is, if I don't get to ride something it's not the end of the world! In any event, we'll figure it out

Hopefully we can customize magic bands though? As of right now I am not able to.

From the last time I was at POP, a couple weeks ago, they still had Nescafe.

Any idea on timing to get to the parks from POP

I'd like to be at rope drop for each park at least 30 minutes before the rope drop. I'll be driving to each park. Any thoughts on how far in advance of my desired arrival time I should leave from POP for each park. My biggest concerns is MK where I will have to drive and then TTC, so I'm not sure how long that will delay me, but I'm curious about each of AK, EP and HS also.

Thanks

Having stayed at Pop a few times, I can't imagine a queen-sized air mattress in the room. I know if you move the table and chairs to the other end of the room, a twin (possibly a double -- though it might be tight) will fit in that space.

If there's a concern about kids falling out of beds, they do have bed rails available. We just asked for them when we checked in and they were usually in the room by the time we walked up there.

So what is the update on the RFID soda machines? Are they turned on yet or are they still giving the usual refills?
