Pictures are awesome.. What time did you have to go out to capture images without people walking around?

I took the pictures at about 1am. There were still people around so I used a shutter speed trick and left it open for a while which helps with removing moving objects from the frame too.

Yes and each level of hotel (Value, Mod, Deluxe) have an associated limit amount and you have to go and clear the charges to keep on going. I can't remember what the exact amount because we didn't charge to the room on our last trip. If you do charge to the room, it is something to keep an eye out for because you don't want to be cut off from charging while away from your resort.

Very true. Each resort has different limits. We just found the $500 limit low for our spending habits. We typically go through more then $500 each day between all the dining and shopping we do.

We actually did not pay extra for a preferred room. We just placed a note in the reservation that we wanted room close to the main building and early check in. I guess we lucked out when we checked in.

We just updated the post to include a PDF of the resort layout/map.

Hope this helps in your planning.

I love Pop, but won't stay there again unless they got new mattresses. The beds were so hard, like concrete, last time we were there. We had to change resorts, because our backs hurt from sleeping on them. I would love to stay there again, if they changed the mattresses. How were the beds for you? Did they seem unbelieveably firm?

Another vote of thanks for the thorough review and photos! I'm seriously considering POP for my next solo trip and am eagerly devouring info on it.

I know there has been some controversy over the new white "triple-sheeting" bedding, but I think it totally makes the room at POP - makes it look much nicer (and more modern) than the old bedspreads.

Would have to agree with you that the mattress was on the firm side however I was not expecting a plush pillow top mattress either. At the end of the day, it is a value resort therefore things end to be more on the cheaper side. To be honest we ended up paying less then $100 per night so it was a great deal for us.

We were there for the 24 hour rock your disneysdie party thus not in the room much and when we were there, we were so tired, the firmer mattress did not matter much.
