hi I've been seeing so many different opinions on the new Pop food court so here's my question. Whenever we really ate at pop our food selections were your basic burgers, pizza & fries, and for breakfast mainly eggs & bacon, bakery items... With that said do you guys still feel that those items are different too? I've been assuming the menu won't really affect us so much due to the types of foods we choose . We never did the fried chicken and so on. What are your thoughts???

What I loved most about the old food court was that they had so much more than burgers, chicken nuggets, etc. I LOVED the parmesan chicken and am most upset about that. The create-your-own salad sounds promising though.

I read that they have turkey bacon and chicken sausage. What I don't know is if that is all they have.

Has anyone had either of these items and do they have pork varieties available?

Thanks for the info. I will put it in my request when I have to call to adjust days. I am even happier if I actually get a fridge but a credit would be very satisfactory.

I would say that you would be fine because that is the majority of what was available.

When you say a credit - how did this work? Did you get it back in cash when you checked out? Or were you expected to spend it there (like charging back to the room key)?

For us it was a credit against what we charged to the room. I don't know what they would do if you don't charge to your room.

They said 4 months, so it should be done by the beginning of November. But you never know.

We'll be there the end of October so I'm hoping they're done by than. We don't need a fridge but it'd be nice to have for any leftovers from the parks and water.

This (and keeping bottled water cold...which is not a necessity for us) is the only reason, for us, that we would want a fridge. We are going to Via Napoli and I would like to bring back some chow for breakfast the next morning, lol! Love love love cold pizza!

We do not charge to the room so I wonder how that would work....

It is due to a medical issue with dad that she might not be able to come- first trip without her it is bittersweet. We arrive for a room only the day before I was wounding if I should just deal with it then, I am stalling cause I want her to come so bad but there is the chance she won't and of course I didn't gt trip insurance this trip either.

I guess what I would probably do if I were in the OP's situation is...if it looks like she's not going, go ahead and call & remove her from the reservation now and pay the change fee which would be $50 (I believe?) I'm not sure that they can adjust a pkg a check in like that? They can upgrade but I don't know that they can take off of a pkg at checkin. I'm not saying for sure they can't, I just don't know that they can. KWIM? And that could be costly!
Now worst case, if they can't remove her from the pkg at this late date, have her ticket removed from her KTTW card, so that the ticket isn't attached to any particular name. And you can save it for future use by anyone! This CAN be done...you may need to get a mgr to do it. Also, talk to a mgr about possibly crediting you the cost of the third adult in the room since she didn't actually come, they MAY be able to work with you on that fee. OP, Feel free to PM me and I'll tell you the mgrs I know and have good relationships with there! BEST of LUCK OP!!
Sorry for the bad advice first time around! I was reading late at night!!

michelle, excellent advice from two veteran DISers

My thought is that in the end if your mother cannot go, is that Disney will credit back your Mother's park ticket, the extra adult charge (and will remove the additional Dining credits) from your room allotment.

Especially with Free Dining, Disney's rule is that everyone on the reservation (adults) must check in. Disney will not allow dining credits to remain on a room if a guest does not check in, so it follows (hopefully) that they will remove the extra adult fee and the park ticket. Disney is fairly understanding, especially when there is a medical situation.

My suggestion... wait until you know for certain if your mom is able to come along (which should be at least a day or two out) and then place the call to Disney and ask to speak to Guest Services and explain the situation. My belief is that Disney will remove the specific charges pertaining to your mother; the park ticket, extra adult fee, and have this amount credited back to your credit card less the $50 change fee.

I wanted to add that I do hope that your Dad's health improves to enable your Mom to accompany you on this trip.

Okay, I'm thinking positive, it will be finished and quicker than that! (that's what an upcoming vacation can do to one's attitude!!)

Absolutely! Once we have a perk, we do not want to be without it. Pixie Dust the replacement goes smooth and quick.

We are going in with an open mind... and DonoMoose you zeroed in on a good point, not everyone will be as affected by the dining changes as others, it all depends on likes, habits and how often one utilized the food court.

We are looking forward to trying some new items.

We liked the chicken too.... but on the flip side my DD has been eating healthier and will definitely want to try the create your own salad.
