The new schedule usually comes out the 2nd-4th of every month. Google "Pop Century Outdoor Movie Schedule" and the first link should mention something about building a better mouse trip. Click on that one

That's actually exactly what I requested last year with online check in and I got it!

Time to/from DTD?

Hi, someone posted in another thread that the time using the buses to get to DTD was very long from the POP. Also, leaving DTD was very difficult and delayed; I should consider a cab. We plan to go there at least one evening, on arrival day, which will be a Tuesday in February. What have others experienced?

We went to DTD from Pop via bus (and back to the resort) twice last October with no problems at all.

Definitely take a resort bus to DTD. Things are so torn up there as far as the parking lots go. CM are even having to park at Epcot and bussed over to DTD for work.

There is one bus stop now. It's down at the Marketplace near the Christmas shop.

Called and saved $35 for our 3-night stay this October. The only rooms available on this promo were preferred pool view rooms. I have a few questions about room requests. First, how noisy is this going to be? It is my understanding that the preferred rooms are in the 60's building. What 2 requests should I make to get quieter room? Also, I am traveling with my best friend, and we need 2 beds. Do I need to request this, or is this the default?

Thanks for any advice. We have never stayed at POP before.

I would think a non first floor would help. So many people walk to/from the pool.

We loved the 4th floor!

Also the rooms usually are doubles since very few kings are available but just ask at check in which kind you got/change if needed.

The preferred rooms really do cut walking time. From the 60 pool area you can walk to bus/food and all 3 pools pretty easily.(pool hopping is fun at POP)

Also you can take a bus from a park to AOA and walk home from there too if you want to explore that resort.

Only 15%? Free dining really is the best deal with the values.

Actually most of the rooms are 2 doubles, not queens.

The 2 bed rooms have full (double) beds not queens. King bed rooms may be requested but are just that - a request.
