We just got back from Pop last weekend - we stayed 11/30-12/7.

I was worried because our last trip was in a BCV 2 bedroom so I was scared Pop would be disappointing but it was GREAT!

We were in 8356 (90's building) - super clean room, great housekeeping. When we checked in on Saturday there was no fridge (I wasn't expecting one) but on Monday or Tuesday (I forget) they installed it

The cast members were all super friendly at Pop - no issues with the Magic bands. We didn't eat at the food court at all - nothing really appealed to us.

The Pop Warner kids were fine (they showed up towards the end of the week) - honestly I wouldn't have known they were a group if I didn't hear about it ahead of time online.

My daughter (2.5) loved the pools - especially the kids one. We swam 3 times which I was not expecting for Dec!

Sitting in Everything Pop getting ready to eat our last meal here. We have had a truly magical trip. I don't want to go home, but I guess we must. No issues with Magic Bands except when I tried to change some on the fly. The Concierge fixed it for me so it was all good.

The two buildings in the 70's section may be for you. They are just about equally close to the main building as the 50's, but there is no pool in the 70's section at all.

Also, the way things are at Pop now, the 50's (and 80's/90's) rooms facing the pool are priced in a "standard pool view" category, so it may be less likely you'd be assigned a pool-facing room in the 50's unless you reserved that specifically. So you could book standard at Pop and request 50's building 3 and you probably won't be facing the pool.

Problems with Magic Bands

Just wanted to share. Checked into Pop on Wed for one night room only. Yesterday morning, checked out and checked back in for our free dining package (12/12-12/18). 3 rooms in Bldg 1 on 1st floor - great location. This morning, we noticed the MBs were not opening the doors. We were heading out at 8:30 to be at HS opening at 9. Stopped at front desk to tell them about our problem and we ended up being at the front desk for 90 minutes! They weren't sure why but it may have had to do with the 2 reservations. They were back and forth with IT and finally had to rebook our entire reservations - we had to add our credit cards again and enter our pins again. They were very apologetic and very nice - ended up giving us extra FPs for every day of our stay. Unfortunately, the problems with just my MB didn't end there - I couldn't get in to HS - but that's another story. Overall, having a great time at Pop!

Happy birthday, Janet! I've loved this FAQ thread ever since early 2012 when I was planning my first trip (as an adult) and deciding where to stay for my DS's first trip EVER. This thread was so informative, fun, and friendly that it heavily influenced my choice of POP, and I'm so GLAD it did. WE LOVE POP! Thanks for your dedication and hard work!

dsnymomof4, I'm here too! Building 3, ground floor. I saw 3 decorated windows in building 1, 1st floor - are those your rooms? If they are, they are the best decorations ever! I decorated our window with snowflakes but forgot to bring a timer for the lights. Hope you are enjoying this beautiful weather. We're heading to MK today...
