See the map/link in the quote above. Each of the 3 buildings have rooms facing the pool (standard view -- but extra cost) and buildings 1 & 3 have preferred view rooms.

192, by the way, is the main "drag" through Kissimee.
if you are at pop or aoa of AK or all stars or CSR or even CBR, it is VERY easy to get to 192 and then cut over a bit west to the target or publix. at your resort, ask them for a map of the WDW with streets, stop lights, etc.

it is SO easy!!!! also right off the way to AK is a little known road called Sherbeth Parkway. (the back way into WDW).. it goea rith out to 192. it's only a little bit west to get to the publix, and the liquor store.

if you are staying, say at any of the allstars or pop or AK, it's quicker to go there than to the goodings.

Yes, I guess I should have mentioned that when we drive and come down I-4, Goodings is right at the exit that *we* usually get off the highway. It's where we would normally enter the Disney World property so it's very convenient for us. Not necessarily true for people coming from different directions.

Spent last weekend at POP. Guess they have some new changes. We werent able to put cash on the account to use for spending and now if you leave a CC on file you are automatically signed up for auto check out. They email you any room charges you had and your card is charged if there is a balance. Which is nice but would have been nicer if the CM had gbiven us the info at check in. Other then that it was a nice stay. Didnt spend much time at the resort since we had 2 full days at the parks. We did have a really nice mousekeeper who on sat when we got back had left a really cute towel shaped like a puppy and also left some wash cloth flowers. My DD really liked it.

Going to talk to DH about our may plans. It looks like booking 3 rooms at POP is the cheapest way to go. The only thing is i dont like taking up a room that may not get used. Just because our second youngest is 3 now. She still sleeps with us when we are out. Or we may just do one day trips with each of the kids seperately. 2 of my girls ages 5 and 6 would like a trip alone. After i took the 8 yr old alone. May just do the BBB at DTD and a dinner. They would love that and it would be special for them.

No -- all buildings have a set of connecting rooms on each floor.

Quick question

Is cherry coke still available in the food court soda machine? I know in the past the last station has had it but we haven't been since the RFID was introduced, I didn't know if that would change any drink options

You'll love POP. We took our daughter for the first time this past Christmas. She loved the petal pool.
Hope you have a great vacation!
