How busy is the main pool during the afternoons in the summer? What about the "quiet" pools?

7 more days for me. I care more about my last day of work before I go. That is Thursday.

I've been going for my bday 5/6 since 2006 and have found the crowds very manageable but the parks are not empty.

Last year the weather was perfect but most years it is pretty hot-especially compared to Massachusetts.

Cool, thanks

Had some miles gathering dust on our Southwest Visa so just booked for a last minute trip in April to Pop Century for DWs birthday!

This will be our first real stay at Pop. We tried it last time because we decided to stay an extra day and take the whole drive back to Virginia in one day rather than breaking it up, and Pop was the cheapest available for an extra day. We really dreaded it, but ended up LOVING it. We're big fans of AoA, and Pop was right down our alley as far as a value for our money and yet a nice place to stay on property. We're not really fans of the theme, but we do really love the resort...if that makes sense.

So we'll be staying four nights this time and can't wait!

They are not super powerful, but they do work pretty well. Much better than I thought they would be. One less thing to pack, which is always great.

Hey, my birthday is also May 6! I won't be going down until the 11th but I did have them list it as a celebration anyway.

I hope the temps hold at 85 or under for my trip. I have a tendency to melt. My last trip I took in May wasn't until the week of the 17th and I remember spending a large amount of time standing under air vents in the shops!

So....my brother and niece are now going with us in 11/2015. We were going to stay at AOA but we are coming back to POP instead. We need to do as cheap as we can because hes a single dad. I'm going to be doing all the planning. Do I have to link our reservations to have connecting rooms or can I just put in a request? And what other perks are there to linking reservations?

Do both to up your odds of getting connecting rooms.

Other than upping your odds of getting connecting rooms, none that I know of.
