    How far is the walk to AoA? We are staying at Pop (requested 60's) but the rest of our family is staying in the Nemo suites at AoA.

    Thanks!!

    Hi! It's a quick walk over the bridge to AoA .. And if staying in the 60s and your other family in Finding Nemo you will be super close, as Nemo is right opposite the 60s area. ;)

    Elvis is available at The Pop bakery (by the ice cream area). It's a chocolate cupcake, peanut butter frosting, banana custard filling with chocolate drizzle and candied bacon on top! Yum! I have a pix if I can figure how to post from my phone :)

    Okay.. here it is!!

    Welcome back! Happy that Pop rocked for you ... The 50s is a great location ... We love bldg 3 lake view ;) that's a shame that woman was so inconsiderate smoking by the pool, a no smoking area. Wish the CMs would handle that but a accountability falls on her. Glad you didn't let it get to you. ;)

    Happy Veterans' Day! First chance to report back since we got her Friday night: got both our room requests for '60s lake view met! We're in room 5424 ( building 5) and its very convenient to Hippy Dippy pool and the food court, plus a very sort walk to the AOA bridge. And especially close to the 4th floor elevator and ice machine which works great for us.

    Kids went swimming Saturday afternoon in the Hippy Dippy but the water was COLD! The heater had been fixed but it was taking a while to warm all that water. So we switched over to the Computer pool for a bit. (BTW pool @ AOA is locked now. Went for a walk last night around 10pm and checked.)

    Made RD at HS on Sat and EP on Sun, took breaks mid-day and then stayed until close both nights. PoP buses are great... haven't waited more than 5 minutes yet!

    Taking it easy this morning and going to MVMCP tonight!

    30 more days til our first trip to WDW!!! Haven't got our Mickey Mail yet, when should i expect it? Also not sure about Photopass, we're not doing character breakfasts so is it better to go with the basic? Can someone point me to a link where i can read more on it? What are your personal thoughts?
    Also can't wait to go to MVMCP Dec 13th, has anyone been yet?

    Looks like I'll be in Pop Century the same time as you. We got our mail and luggage tags on thursday or friday of last week. Hopefully it comes tomorrow for you. And I'll be at MVMCP on the 13th too.

    Did you book a package or a room only reservation? You don't get mail with a RO; just with a package. Your confirmation information is on the website should you need that for either type of reservation.

    You would get an envelope from Magical Express if you booked ME. That typically arrives about a month before your trip, but I've received my ME stuff as close as 4 days before departure.

    Hey everyone,

    Fairly new to booking everything myself. Will be staying at POP and will be POPPING the question as a big surprise our first night at WDW. Is there a way to put in requests online or must I call.

    I read in this thread about how there's no guarantee of a King but I would really like to try to get one lol.

    Also can you request what era you're in. 60's looked fun but if it's better to only put in a King request to up my chances of it being honored than I would scrap that.


    Thanks!

    Call and request a King room. They are not plentiful, so if it is very important to you, I would make that my only request.

    You can do on-line check in 10 days prior to your check in date. I do not believe that king rooms are an option to choose during the on-line check in -- someone will correct me if I'm wrong. You can make up to two selections from such things as decade section, ground floor, and lake view. Personally, if all you really want is the king room, I'd just call and ask for that and be done. I'm not sure on-line check in will help you. When you check in at the resort, ask whether the room you were assigned is a king room. If not, ask if they can reassign you to a king room. They'll try to accommodate you.

    Good luck on your room assignment and on your proposal!

    I'm sorry if this question has been asked and answered before. Our reservations were made with a TA and they have taken care of our specific room requests,etc. My question is....can I still take advantage of online check-in? or will that not be an option?
