    I'm in Ballston Spa, near Saratoga Springs.:) It's snowing like crazy today. Makes me want to up my trip. I've never stayed at the POP so I'm trying to read through the "Groovier POP thread" to get info on what building I should be trying to stay in. I've also never been to Disney at Christmas time, so I'd be open to any holiday pointers. Thanks for the greetings.

    Welcome to the boards! Planning a disney trip is just as exciting as going! December is a great time to go... Nobody does the holidays quite like disney!
    The pop thread ur reading is wonderful.. Ask questions and all the "pop professionals" will help u out! Heres a link to some christmas photos from last year ...

    My biggest tip is just to take your time and take it all in.. my favorite thing to do is walk thru Disney Studios and catch the Osborne Lights... dont forget to look for the hidden mickeys and the one black cat! :thumbsup2

    We're staying at the POP in August. Feel free to PM me as your trip gets closer and I'll tell you as much as I can about the hotel. We've never stayed at the POP before but the kids think that the pictures of it look very cool. :cheer2:
    We're down near Albany - and the snow just keeps coming. Who needs a gym today - I'll just go shovel!!
    Take Care

    Welcome to the Dis from snow covered Plattsburgh NY.(Just a couple of hours north of you)!!!

    This is a great place for info. We have stayed at Pop a few times, if you have specific questions just PM me or others and I am sure we can help you with your planning.

    School was cancelled today, so I did not have to teach and I get to play around on Dis more than usual today!!

    Small world (no pun intended)... I'm in Clifton Park, home sick from work, and this post caught my eye. My girlfriend (from Ballston Spa) convinced me last week that we should go back in March. So just last night, I booked Port Orleans Riverside for a week.

    We were originally temtped to go back because she received the $500 GC offer. But we wanted to do 7 nights at a moderate, so the buy 4, get 3 free (w/$200 GC) turned out to be the best deal for us. Seems like a shame that we didn't use the email.

    Hope you have fun. I know we will.

    I stayed at POP in Sept 08. It is a great resort. We stayed in a prefered room in the 60's building. The 60's is close to the main building. We had a pool view but late at night it can be noisy due to the people in the pool. I think next time I stay there it will be 60's not facing the pool. it will be much more quiet.
