#memoriesofdisney may end up paying for your dvc if you keep it up! good use of keywording there. congrats. i loved the review and found it to be very fair. We've been to Pop 3x with our 4th coming up in September. We had stayed at a few other resorts (only 1 other value) and once we found Pop, we havent looked back. I found most of your observations to be in line with mine. In regards to room size, we've taken 2 smallish ones with us and were fine. When we took two smallish with 2 olderish, we had to get an adjoining room, which was a fabulous arrangement. Mileage will vary by family on the size issue.
We dont charge to our room. Never knew of the 500 thing. Seems like to charge to the room, we are paying twice. Figuratively.
I always end up feeling like some day the 'loudness' of the themery is going to get old. It hasnt yet. I like to feel a little more outgoing at Disney, so I really enjoy the music, the color, even the kids having fun. I think it will at some point become obnoxious, but it never has.
I tend to prefer rooms closer to the pool than away from the pool. I dont like the 'other' pool area at all.
Busing has never been an issue, we usually have a car. When we've used the busing, it has been fine. Seems to me at one point there was shared with Animal Kingdom? maybe a different resort, I could be mistaken.
It can be very frustrating waiting for checkout in the foodcourt. There arent a lot of choices that the cashiers couldnt be checking people out at a quick pace. It should be bam bam and it isnt. The soda fountains are usually dirtier than I would like. The coffee is weak. All Disney coffee is 80/20 water.lol.
Anyway, good review, and now you have mine.lol.

@polineedyan Thanks for taking the time to visit our site, read our review and share with us yours. I know may on this board value different opinions and experiences.
Generally speaking, we would go back if the situation was right. For now our next 4 trips are all booked at our DVC resorts however if we find a cheap weekend flight, we would most likely stay at POP or one of the other value resorts.

Thanks so much for sharing! Thoroughly enjoyed reading your review and loved the photos! Pop is our favorite resort. After our first stay there, we decided it was the perfect fit for us and have booked there ever since.

@Missymouse Thanks for visiting our blog and for taking the time to write a comment. How many times have you stayed there now? Do you have any tips or tricks to share about the resort?
