(yes, you can bring it on the bus).
without a fridge, you will have to use the ice from the machines, maybe even your sink as a cooler,
Excellent! Thank you. If I can save money, I will do it for sure!

I'm excited for our upcoming trip (3 weeks!) and even more excited that they sell alcohol on site. Okay, not even more excited but it's certainly good news! However, since our first night we are going to DTD, it might be a good idea to run over to Hess before we head back to POP! I have a 31 Market Bag which I assume is considered a soft sided cooler...anyone have experience using one of them at Disney??

Just phoned POP to confirm my water delivery. SHIPPED water is delivered & held at the front desk. Groceries and water purchased thru a grocery service is held in the luggage room.

They make a note in your reservation when it arrives. They will delivery to your room once you check in.

Made it to POP. MagicBands are working great! Very easy to spend money, which I know Disney loves!
I would never request a pool view room again. Quiet hours are not being enforced. Some kids were in the pool until 3am, yelling and such. Thank goodness I brought ear plugs, but MIL did not, so she only got 3 hours of sleep last night.

They sell earplugs in the Pop store. Sorry it was so noisy. I agree that not getting a pool view is the way to go. If it is really bad again, you might ask to be moved to a quieter room. It's a pain to move, but it might be worth it to retain your sanity!

Janet, your new photo of Sam is terrific! Band uniform, yes? You need to start posting here again. We miss your POPular knowledge.

We are staying at Pop from Oct. 19-26. I just signed in and clicked the FP+. It took me to the page to select the dates and pick attractions! When I went to the Manage MagicBands - nothing. I will let you know what happens next!!

Also, any Pop merchandise being sold other than pins? I really would love a t-shirt, or sweatshirt, or mug . . .

I haven't seen anything. I would love a Christmas ornament for each resort we have stayed at. I have Port Orleans and Poly, then I never saw anymore.

Me, too! I thought I read somewhere that resort-specific merchandise might be making a comeback. I sure would love to see that! I "need" some POP stuff!!

We would love that, too! We get at least one ornament on every trip; it would be great to have a resort one!
