I check out on the 5th around 8:30 at night, the nice lady at the counter tells me "because it's after 1, we can't give you a refund for this night" I tell her that's no problem as I had already known I would be checking out that day and didn't expect any type of compensation. Today I wake up and find that they have refunded me around the same price as a one night stay... hello unexpected Christmas shopping money!
Awesome! Sometimes when people are nice they get nice in return! Merry Christmas!

Quick question

I swear I read something somewhere and now I can't find it and am 2nd guessing myself.

On departure day, can you leave your luggage at the resort while you spend time at the parks or DTD? Our flight isn't until 6pm (thinking ME pickup around 3pm) and we have breakfast reservations that morning that I am afraid we wouldn't make it back by check out, but could check out before we left.

Thanks for you help!

Yes, you can check your bags with luggage services at Pop. Good advice to allow time for them to locate your bags upon pickup, just in case. You don't want to feel rushed to make your DME time. Also nice to tip them.

Ahhh tips! That's what I have forgotten! Besides mound keeping and waitstaff who am I forgetting? And I can charge meal tips to the room even on the DDP right?

Christmas week question

I'm staying at POP during Christmas week. On our last day Dec 27, we're hoping to go back to the resort to relax around lunchtime and return for our ADR at 5pm in the MK, then enjoy the evening festivities.
Do you think we'll have a problem returning to the MK due to closures for our ADR arrival?

If you mean will you have an issue being admitted to MK, I'd guess it's unlikely there will be an issue. Those staying at a resort as well as those with in-park reservations are admitted through three stages of closure before the fourth level (no new admittance) is reached.

Recommendation for a close to lobby but not around a pool - area?

Last time I was in 50s building 3 and it was really nice but I was facing the pool and it got a little loud once a little league team checked in and stayed in the pool at night. Guess I could ask for the same but on the other side

We did this when we stayed at POR last June. However, when my husband tried to tip them they said they could accept tips. Just a heads up.
