    I couldn't find the answer to this, so maybe you guys can help me. We will be arriving at Pop before lunch. Since we can't check in until 3pm we will probably be hanging poolside. Does anybody know if we can get towels during check in to use at the pool or should we bring our own? Oh, and what are my chances of getting our room before 3pm? It would be great to get it by 1 or so to put the baby down for a nap, but thinking that might be a stretch.

    Thank you!

    You can check in when you arrive, your room just might not be available yet. If you ask for towels when you check in, the CM will give you some. Towels are not available poolside.

    As far as a room being ready for you early, there are a lot of different factors. If you are willing to take the first available room, I'd say your chances of getting in early are good. If you have several special requests, then that limits you. Also, the day of the week you are checking in plays a part. If you are doing on-line check in, they ask for an approximate arrival time. Putting that info out there for the room assignor should help, too.

    16 more days to check in but can do on line check in on the 4th. I'm really hoping for the '50s building 1, room 1149(ok maybe a little to picky, lol), what I'm wondering is can you know request an area now or can you still only do that by checking in at POP? :)

    You can request a general area like 50's during online check in. You can also request near transportation or first floor. But you can only request 2 of the things during online check in. A specific request like a room can only be done by phone with Disney reservations.

    We have a room-only ressie, so we haven't had to pay our full balance yet. If I do online checkin, will I have to pay the balance at that point? Today is our 10-day mark, but if I have to pay the full thing at the online checkin, I'll wait until Monday.

    We did our online checkin today (thanks for the answer about payment!) -- 60s building, lakeview. This will be my fourth time at Pop, and I've never seen the lake. Since it's DS's first time staying on property (well, once when he was 4, at the old Disney Institute), I let him pick the location. Hope we get our choices! I can't think of anything else I should be doing at this point, other than keeping an eye on our flight.

    Poofiesdream, congrats on your daughter's wedding! I hope you have a beautiful day!
