    So, for those couples only...if you don't get a king, what do y'all do? Please don't say sleep separately, because that'd be very sad. :( is there a good chance of getting a king if we're going in September, and we have no other requests?

    I've never requested one so I don't know what your chances are. You can book a king room in the moderate resorts. It is just a request at values and deluxe resorts.

    I had no trouble sleeping in the double bed with someone, you shouldn't have trouble either really. They are not Twins, they are doubles, so while it's a tighter squeeze if you really cuddle that close you should be fine.

    Sorry for the multiple posts...I'm on the iPad, and it said my first message was not processing, and I was like "aw heck, I'm not rewriting all that", hence the shorter duplicate one. ;) sorry about that!

    Glad to know they're doubles! I was under the impression they were twins for some reason. Not so worried anymore!

    Just checked out today from building 6 at POP. No towel animals this trip but the mousekeeping was done very well. The food court never seemed overcrowded like when I walked over to AoA last night for dinner. The pool wasn't even really crowded either! I just wish they had an option to pay for a King Room like in the Moderates and Deluxe categories..maybe some day!!!

    You can't book king at deluxes unless you book a 1BR villa that has a king. Only moderates have regular rooms that you can book king.

    If you need tickets and transportation to IOA/US, I recommend buying the two together from the board sponsors, DreamsUnlimited. You can check out the offers and prices here: http://www.dreamsunlimitedtravel.com/universal/tickets.htm

    We purchased the two day tickets so did two days at IOA/US during our spring break last year. The transportation worked great from Pop.

    Not sure I should say this or suggest this, but DH needs an accessible room for bathroom grabs and room for ECV when we are at WDW and when I click that we need an accessible room we have the option of booking king rooms with different bathroom types at all values. At mods and deluxes kings cost more but they are the same price at values. Just thought I would share.

    MEARS was AWESOME! Such a great service. You just have to call the day before (24 hours in advance) to schedule a pickup. They were always right on time, and always pleasant taking us back in the afternoon as well. Such a great service, I'm so glad I read about it on here. I wouldn't EVER pay for a cab when you can just do this!

    My guy and I stayed at CSR on our last trip and didn't want to pay an extra $40 or whatever it is per night for a king bed. We just cuddled in the double bed and it was fine! And it was kinda nice during the afternoons when we went back to the room, I could take a nap in one bed and he could play on his laptop or whatever in the other one :)

    Welcome back! Happy you enjoyed your stay at POP! :hippie: Sometimes we get a towel animal, last year, our mousekeeper was kind enough to indulge my DD and my niece with a little towel making 101 :upsidedow Its good to read that the service itself was great.:thumbsup2

    And even though some guests want the ability to book a king room... can you imagine adding another booking category to POP?? making it 5 categories?? and then how does one differieniate between the king rooms in certain areas i.e. standard vs pool view?? yikes! Too much, we are still getting used to the extra 2 categories this year..:goodvibes

    Sandi, you are amazing as usual...thanks for posting and reminding us of this link! :thumbsup2

    Handicap rooms and room options available are intended for guests like yourself that require the accomodations. :goodvibes Its good that it is in a different category and maintained just for this purpose. :flower3:

    :wave2: stitchlovestink...Have a great time at Disney with your DD (when she's not working :)) Good to hear it's not full - enjoy! :cool1:

    You never know when you might get "dusted" :goodvibes Will say that we usually book standard and request lakeview...and we have not been disappointed... bldg 3 (tramp) building is in the 50s and offers a great location for Classic Hall - Busing. Perhaps you want to consider requesting close to transporation on your reservation. :)

    We really like the 60s (our last stay was in Bldg 4). Like you, we have stayed at moderate level, and agree that the difference in room size from a value to mod is very slight, and it not a concern for us. :) Enjoy your stay!!

    So exited for our first trip to POP May 3-10! Only stayed at moderate, but honestly, we only shower and sleep in there, so why waste your money?! Any creative tips (Besides the tie dye cheesecake!) for a first timer here?
    Thanks!

    Heading to WDW tomorrow morning. Will be at Beach Club :beach: until Monday, then switching over to Pop :hippie: for two nights. If anyone thinks of any picture requests, let me know.

    I'm not sure that this is a creative tip, but it is interesting to me. Check out the shadow boxes in the lobby of the hotel for all the memorabilia they've featured. It's really quite a collection and, depending on how old you are, will bring back some memories. Also, I like taking a stroll (or run) along "memory lane" which is the walkway near the lake. They've put up informational signs about significant events during the various decades. Also, now that AoA is complete, that walkway goes all around the lake and it is fun to check out AoA's landscaping, etc.

    All that takes time away from the parks, etc., but I enjoy it. (I don't like the tie-dyed cheesecake, so ymmv :goodvibes)
