    Yep. That is why the Pop Century FAQ thread is on #7. The other 6 eventually got closed because of their length. :goodvibes

    Yes! Grandfather us in!!! The only one I have seen get closed because of size was the giant FP+ one... or that might have been because people were getting crazy... I just remember it was huge and highly entertaining... :rolleyes:

    7 am Thursday. Good luck. If it makes you feel any better. In Dec 2010 I did not call for 2 days after the offer was released and I had no problem getting room at ASMo. And Dec is busier than Sept.

    I would expect it is going to kind of be a hot mess... I'm thinking more people know about it now and out-number the Visa folks

    Hmm... Personally I am worried that if I am on hold too long I will fall asleep... totally getting up at 6am to call (and I have not been up at that hour for a VERY long time) Maybe we will get lucky and have quick wait times like you lucky ducks did... otherwise I suppose I can just sing along to the hold music! ;)

    Edited to add: One of you guys were worried about getting caught by a CM - I was totally singing my heart out to One Little Spark when a CM came on, told me I had just made her day, lol!

    As we sit here waiting to see what Thursday will bring anyone want to humor me by helping me sort out my never ending indecisiveness over resorts :confused3

    We are currently booked at AOA LM. We originally wanted to book an AOA suite like last year but it was way out of budget. We really, really love AOA. The zero entry pool and splash pad being the number one seller for us as both my kids are not fond of being held in the water they like some freedom. Since AOA LM is a no go for the discount I am stuck.
    Pop seems super fun for my kids but I am just not fond of the theme or look.. I have two pretty light sleepers so I worry about noise level and I am bummed that there is no zero entry pool. I love the one bus stop!
    I am also considering POR because of the AB rooms. We would book preferred to be guaranteed AB. I love the bigger beds, trundle (my 2 year old could use that rather than a pack n play) and the two sinks. My oldest son liked the theme of the AB rooms but he resort as a whole, though very very nice and lush just does not feel fun!

    What would you do?
    Say the heck with it and keep LM AOA paying for the dining plan(we are fine with the price point but are more comfortable with a lower price)
    Move to Pop with FD upgrade
    Move to POR preferred with FD

    Thanks all!!

    Thank for your kind words - and thanks for the suggestion! :rotfl2: :maleficen; :rotfl2: Not so sure about the hitchhiking ghost - I think Maleficent would be more fun. Who wouldn't want to turn into a big fire breathing dragon ... that is, as long as there wasn't a prince w/ a sword of truth hanging around!

    And yes, I did notice parachuting Mickey - am hoping to find something similar - would be kinda cool watching him fly around on the ceiling fan popcorn::

    Oh Riverside is the best. I've stayed there five times and love the quiet in the woods. However the five person rooms may be limited too.

    For a zero entry pool, CBR has that, but the beds are smaller. CBR also has a splash area too. So many trade offs.

    I've also stayed at Pop five times as well because I love that one too. It can get a bit noisy though.

    At the rate we're going here, if it's ONLY 250 pages, we'll be full by Friday at the latest - and that's only if we're really slow typers! When I went to bed Sunday night, the last page was around 68 - 70. 48 hours later and we're around 115. This thread is growing so fast, I can be all caught up reading it when I go to post a reply, and when I get back, I'm behind a couple pages or more. Just goes to show what happens when you get a bunch of Disney addicts in a room together. party:
