    Great. Thanks. We will be sure to check out the shadow boxes. I might enjoy them more than my four year old. I'm still a big kid myself.:rotfl2:

    My favorite location was 60's section; Bldg 4; 4th Floor; Rooms 4450 & 4451 (lakeview). We were right by the elevator and stairs (as well as the ice and vending machines). The location was quiet and close to everything. The pool was just a few steps away but since our room wasn't facing it we didn't have to hear the noise. Classic Hall and the bus stops were a very quick walk. And as a bonus, we could see some of the fireworks from Epcot and Hollywood Studios from our room.

    We love the 80's and 90's section. Close to a pool, laundry, and super close to the busses.

    All I ever ask for is high floor near laundry...we have gotten every decade except 60's...will be interesting to see what this next time brings!

    December is going to be the first time staying on Disney property and we are staying at Pop! We debated upgrading if we get free dining but DH thinks the kids will have the most fun at Pop.

    We are thinking of requesting the Tramp building or Lady building. Any suggestions?

    We aren't using a TA and I'm not sure how to reserve a certain room area at POP. How do I do that?

    Thanks!!

    :welcome:

    Requests need to be called in (you can just call 1(407)W-DISNEY) and added to your reservation. You can list 3, so be sure to list them in order of importance. For instance, I always request in this order:

    Building 9
    4th floor
    Close to transportation

    I always get all 3, but that doesn't happen for everyone, so that is why the order is important. Good luck! :goodvibes

    Here at Pop now. We checked in last night, in building 6. The fridge in the room had a note on it saying do not use but I called mousekeeping and they brought me a fridge. My son is 13 months and drinks a lot of milk (and not much real food unfortunately) so it was declares medically necessary.

    Could use everyone's expertise. We've stayed at pop before but it was just the hubby n I and we didn't care where the room was. This time we will have our 2 year old with us as we'll as my parents. I've requested adjoining rooms but nothing else at this point for our September trip. I'm thinking of asking for the 70's section for two reasons. First there is no pool in this section so I'm hopeful for quieter nap times for our daughter, it's also close to the bus stop and while my parents don't have mobility issues they are a little slower these days and I think close will be helpful at the end of the day. Thoughts? Anything else we should request?

    No suggestions really, but I just want to make sure you know that you should request connecting rooms if you want the best possible chance to be close to your parents. Adjoining rooms could be close, but they could also just be in the same building and on a totally different floor.

    Got the last of my Mickey Mail yesterday. We will be leaving 4 weeks from tomorrow. I need to go out and find a new suitcase we are one big one short. We never ever bring this much luggage but the cruise is making me pack more than normal.:rotfl:

    My magic bands have gone from Customize to being shipped soon. So I can report back how they handle everything at pop once we get back.
