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.


I wanted to add that I do hope that your Dad's health improves to enable your Mom to accompany you on this trip.
I don't know if it has changed, but in 2009 then DF (DH later in that trip) didn't check in with us due to an emergency at home, they didn't taken away any of his dining credits. He did check in 3 days later though. They didn't change any of the charges either. Again, things may have changed since then. (We didn't let Disney know until I arrived.)

Staying at Pop for the first time in November. What are some of the popular room requests? I don't care too much about view or which floor I'm on but I'd prefer not to be too far from food court and buses. 50s or 60s section?? Thanks!

We will be staying at POP in October. We are going to change our reservation from AOA to POP when FD is offered. Do you think that the rooms at POP will sale out fast when the promotion takes place? I'm nervous.

Ok here is a question I really want/need a fridge to have my milk in the morning for my cereal (bringing from home)and I find it very inconvenent and more expensive to have to go to food court every morning. I understand they are offering $15 for not having a fridge but I rather have the fridge. If they can't get me a fridge would it be to much to ask if they move me to a different resort that has a fridge in the room? I won't let them send me to the all stars. Been there never going back no matter what. So it would have to be AOA mermaid room I am guessing or somewhere else. I'll be there the end of August and part of the Magic Band/FP+ testing. Guessing that would mess with the testing if they moved me too. What other resorts are part of this test other then Pop?

I don't believe changing resorts would help anyway...the fridge issue is not just at Pop, it's a WDW-wide issue at ALL the resorts. They are having to replace them all.

Only 115 days till we are back at POP. If you ask me that's 115 days to long.

Oh thank god. I would've cried if they didn't have bacon. Have to have it with my POP waffle every morning. Wannabe bacon just won't do it. Lol

I'd say either or would be just fine! While I love the lake view rooms of the 60's, I must admit that I have become rather partial to the 50's! It is now my absolute favorite!!! I love how quiet it is but yet you are not far from anything!!! It just suits me perfectly!

sorry to disappoint you, but a lot of people were counting on having milk in their fridge for their cereal, so it's not a need. the few fridges they have will be for medical needs.

the little mermaid section of AOA is consistently totally booked, since people who dont' need or want to pay for a suite still want to experience the newest resort. (that's why we paid rack rate there this last APril when there were rrom only discounts availabe everywhere else. they don't need to offer discounts at AOA LM section.
maybe get one of those collapsible styrofoam coolers?

I know, it bites... we finally got free fridges at the values....

Would asking to be close to the food court be a reasonable request. That would mean we would also be close to buses correct?

we, too. love the 50's. the bowling pin pool is very big. and you dont' have that (in our opinion, as empty nesters) obnoxious "pool party".

dont' mind the games. but that LOUD teeny bopper, music (beyonce, katy perry, etc) at the 50's you get to hear 50's music in the background. at the 60's you get to hear 60's music.. until.. dumdumdumdumdum... disco party time!!!!!.

also, in the 50's you are still close enought to the 60's to go over to the hippy dippy pool if you want. (of course, as an aging hippy, it is SACRILIGE!!! i tell you, to call a pool "hippy dippy" and blare teeny bopper music.)

it would be a reasonable request. but the preferred rooms are priced and labeled preferred, not because of the view, but because of their proximity to the food court/buses.

you might get a room in the 90's or 80's as you can cut across the parking lot to the buses and food court.

Just 1 Pop food court question, can you still get the "King" cupcake? Please tell me it hasn't left the building!
