    Stopped by POP today to have lunch and check out the new menus. I felt very lost in the food court! A lot of people were wandering and saying how they missed the old menus. I too miss the old menus and the "American" feel of the food at POP. I asked for a plain cheeseburger as it was not on the menu. They took away the yummy chicken alfredo, chili dog, among other things. The burger was still very good and fresh though!

    Pop is my favorite because of the lake!! I love just meandering in the evening next to the lake when we've had a busy day at the park or first thing in the morning when it's quiet. So relaxing. :goodvibes

    I'm devastated to hear that the chicken alfredo is gone!!! That was my favorite POP dinner!! :sad:

    They should take that into account. At least if you are going multiply times in one year, let people use the same ones for that year. I have 2 sets for this year. I certainly don't need another. That isn't counting for all of the mugs I have from previous trips. How many mugs do we all really need? :rotfl:

    Question: can you request to stay at a certain section at Pop?

    That all sounds so good! Excited to see the changes in just 94 days (but really...who is counting???). The mussels and spring roll sub have my interest piqued!

    That looks....heavenly! I love that quiet time...early in the AM at Pop. Nothing better...

    Enjoy your day!

    Yes, you can make the request when you book or during online check in. If you do online check in, it lists the five decades (1950s - 1990s) as choices. Should you want to be more particular, like request a certain building in a particular decade, you should make that request by phone -- either at booking or later.

    Great thanks!! It's already booked. I booked by phone. Is there a better choice over another?

    It's really a matter of opinion. Here is a link to the resort map that also shows the different rate classifications. http://i962.photobucket.com/albums/...read/PopCenturyMap2012RoomCategoriesFINAL.jpg

    I always reserve a standard room at Pop; paying for a preferred, pool, or preferred pool view is not anything I would pay for, but plenty of people do and have very valid reasons for doing so. I prefer a "lakeview" room and like to have a first floor room. The decade section is less important to me. I have had rooms in all three buildings of the 1950s section and in Building 6 of the 1970s. They were all fine.

    Take a look at the resort map and see what appeals to you. When my DD was little, she loved to be by Lady, so the 1950s section was great. Now, she likes lakeview and doesn't care about the decade.

    You can call anytime before arrival to make a room request. The one thing I'd caution against is getting your hopes/expectations so attached to a particular section/building that, if your request is not met, you're totally bummed. It's vacation and chances are that you'll not spend all that much time in your resort room to make its location all that important.

    Welcome to the World Timsierramist!!! party:

    Hopefully new favorites will be made....change can be good! :cool1:

    Perfect!! Can I order that weather for August?? :laughing:

    Thanks for the info! Looking forward to trying something new when we are there. :)

    My favorite time in the food court :thumbsup2 (just substitute coffee for diet coke :))

    :woohoo:

    Both pools are fine, and are themed to the decade(s). It somewhat depends if you have a preference for the 50s or 80s/90s theming. We stayed in both areas and like both pools. :goodvibes We probably prefer the 50s theming a bit more. :)
