    Sounds like a great trip. We are spending all 14 nights in Disney. We are doing Lego land if that counts. I really want to do Universal but my youngest just isn't quite there as far as height. HP is a big must do for my kids and my youngest would be very very upset if she couldn't go on it. She was all excited she got to do tower of terror last year. We are thinking of adding 2 nights and if we do that we will head to Seaworld and Aquatiqua. Just waiting for airfare to come down a bit on Saturday we are leaving Monday now.

    Does anyone know if it's alright to have your own alcohol poolside? I know they have a bar but making margarita's in room and going to pool shouldn't be a problem I hope
    35 days until we hit the road to see Mickey & the gang !!!!!

    I booked two rooms at POP for my family of 5. I requested connecting rooms of course. This is my one and only request. Has anyone ever requested connected rooms and not gotten them? Just curious.

    Just home from 8 nights at POP. This was our first stay at Pop, 10+ trips to WDW. I LOVED Pop. Things are within easy walking distance, the food court was delicious, and the theming is great.
    I did online check-in and had room keys in minutes from the front desk. I requested bldg 3, 4th floor, lake view and got an awesome view of Illuminations every night from our window. It was the perfect location.
    We loved the tye-die cheesecake and the Oreo Mickey cupcakes. The chicken parmesan was delicious. DD loved the pizza.
    We had no probs with the buses. Twice we jumped on an AOA bus back from the parks and quickly walked to our room at Pop. AOA theming is awesome, especially at night. We talk a walk over there to just look around and came back around the lake. It was a nice stroll.

    A few notes: if you book thru AAA it is not easy to add someone to your reservation during your vacation or get Magical Express for that person. I was able to do it, but it took time.

    If you need extra towels at 11 pm, you get them fast.

    I had to do some laundry and it took 30 mins in the washer and 30 in the dryer. Jeans were dry after just 30 mins on high. I remember drying for over an hour at POR years ago.

    If you go to WDW in March, bring clothes for all weather. It was 86 on Saturday and 46 on Tuesday. Shorts to gloves!!!

    And lastly, if you go to WDW over spring break/Easter, you gotta have a plan and be prepared for big crowds! We were prepared but I met plenty of people that had no idea it would be so crowded and that lines would be really long.

    We LOVE Pop!!!
