    I'm here now and they are regular am/fm alarm clocks. No sound machine. It does have an mp3 plug though.

    That is so odd because I know that someone replied that there were new sound machine alarm clocks. Oh well, thank you very much for the information - now I know to pack mine!

    Just got an email from my friend who was at Pop this spring and had a sound machine on her clock radio at Pop which she used. Either someone left their personal clock there, or some rooms at Pop have sound machines. Since I'm meeting her at WDW in a week, I told her to bring her sound machine just in case.

    She did text me on that trip and tell me Pop now had fridges and sound machines (and that she used both), so I know she wasn't imagining it. Very strange...

    I have been a longtime DIS board lurker but this is my first post. I have learned so much from the boards and the info was SO useful in planning our August 2012 trip. We booked a bounceback trip for August 2013 - free dining :yay: and already started planning. I have so many questions about room location and ticket options. I can't wait for fellow POP fans to help us plan our trip!

    That is definitely not the norm...
    At least for the kids to stay there. Sometimes parents that are coming along to watch will stay there but without their kids.
    Yes, Hopefully it will not be bad! Good Luck!!

    :woohoo: We love the lakeview, 4th floor rooms ... and love the 60s too! :hippie:

    First, your room requests will not be overlooked because you use the on-line system, it should mesh the TA requests with your on-line preferences. :)

    With the fact that you have requested connecting and adjoining rooms, suggest you should consider by-passing the on-line system in favor of the traditional check in at the resort. Are your parties arriving and checking in together? I believe this would be the best scenario for you all. You can discuss your rooms with the Cast member if your requests are not met, and they will do their best to accomodate you (CMs can also handle this thru the on-line check in line, however, Disney usually prefers this line to be for guests with fewer or no requests. :goodvibes)

    Okay. You are not nuts ;). I just checked the clock again and looked at the other side. On the right side of the clock are the volume controls, tuner, and mp3 plug. On the left side is the alarm setting and WHITE NOISE MACHINE function. You can listen to wind chime, ocean, and brook. I turned it on and the sound of the ocean is drowning out the sounds of the screaming kids in the pool ;)

    I'll take some pictures and post them when we return from our trip. I can't figure our how to post pics from the app.

    We've requested a king bed room at POP and would *really* like to get one as it is our only request. The confirmation email says 3pm is check in time, but can we show up earlier (as early as 10am) to try and snatch up one of the kings before everyone else gets there? I know it's unlikely that the room will be ready at that time; I'm just looking to "lock in" a king for our stay. We've got a room only reservation and it's our first time onsite.

    It's an awesome resort! Here now and loving it. I have a beautiful lake view and can see Epcot's fireworks at night. Food Court is wonderful and all the CM's are awesome!!!

    Thanks! I was originally planning on a LM room at AOA but i waited to long to click submit and there were no rooms left. So POP was the only standard room value left.

    Did NYE last year. It was amazing. As long as you know there is going to be chaos when everyone tries to leave the park at midnight you are fine. We stuck around 45 minutes or so in the park and things were fine getting the bus back to POP.

    Have an spectaular trip!
