    So excited! The husband and I finally decided on a date. We will be staying at Pop from October 1st to October 10th (2013). This will be the longest we have ever stayed at WDW and it will also be the first time we've been without the kids. Now we just need to actually book the room. :goodvibes

    30 days and we will be back at POP and the world. We took the kids for their first trip Jan/Feb 2012. We didn't think we were going to go back til 2014, but my fiance surprised me and said lets go Feb 2013. The kids don't know and we are not telling them til we pick them up after school the day we leave. We made a video for them to watch to tell them.

    I am getting super excited now!!

    Hey Everyone!

    We will be heading back to POP June 9-15th!
    We stayed there on our last trip and it is my son's favorite so far.
    I do like how close it seems to some of the parks and DTD...
    We have stayed at Sports and Music and they seemed much further away for some reason.

    Thanks for the welcome Janet! The funny thing is I read through this whole thread and saw that I had Popped in back in Oct or Nov to mention that I was thinking about staying at Pop! Lol I was like Hey there I am!

    I stayed at Sports once, but Pop ever since. I think the centrality of Pop's location is better for getting around, certainly for Studios and Epcot.

    checking in in 25 days. we stayed for one night(rouhgly 12 hrs) xmas 2011, loved the feel of it, checked into blt the next day. paying oop this time vs dvc so it will be nice to experience the entire resort. have 2 rooms booked with the baby so she can get sleep away from the big two. did hear on fb about the dance comp feb 2-3? and that pop is booked solid. am very worried about the dance crowd from what ive read about the noise factor. crowds at the park i can deal with, kids screaming and yelling routines outside our doors worry me.

    I wanted to pop :wave2: back in and tell you about my Dec. 2012 stay at Pop. I did a quick 2 day trip for the opening of Fantasyland. I booked the night before I drove down.

    Check in was fast and easy. I was solo. I drove my husbands horribly uncomfortable car for 8 hours to get there so it was nice to check in and head to my room fast.

    I was told the room was in the 60's but it was near the Mickey Phone and Foosball players so to me that was 70's.

    But no matter - I was very happy when I saw I had a top floor room. Less plumbing noise that way.
    When my DD and I stayed there when she was 8 years old, we had the worst room for us - bottom floor, people around us, lots of noise going on every morning and night from the plumbing and hearing people go to the bathroom. It was icky and I swore I'd never stay there again.

    Well, never say never. :rotfl: This trip was a whole different one. I was top floor, had no neighbors, didn't hear a peep of plumbing at all. I did have to call maintenance regarding a missing sink stopper but they replaced it while I was in the parks that evening.

    The room was clean and everything worked. (I do a precheck at every hotel I stay at before I unpack - flush toilet, check shower, check sink, check bed for bedbugs.)

    The bed was comfortable. The fridge was perfect for holding a few waters and the juice I picked up.

    I stopped at the food court for a snack and the food court was the same as always - crowded, loud and hard to move around in.
    I decided to avoid it if possible and picked up some juice and bananas for the next 2 mornings breakfast. I knew I'd be eating my other meals in the parks.

    The buses were fast that trip - I never waited more than 10 minutes for a bus. Going back to the resort in the evening took longer but still I didn't have to wait for more than 2 buses before boarding.

    I didn't spend much time shopping at Pop this trip either. I looked around the gift shop briefly but there wasn't anything I needed so I didn't get anything.

    On my last morning before I drove home, I walked over to AoA which was fun to do. I doubt I'll ever stay there since I tend to go solo and those Little Mermaid rooms seem so far from the food court there but it was fun to check it out.

    I enjoyed my stay at Pop this time. So I figure I'll go back to Pop again someday. :thumbsup2

    Thanks for the review. I check in on Monday for 2 nights before meeting up with the POP Princess Janet B. I really do enjoy my solo time at POP ... easy to get around and I do believe they have some of the best bus service on property! :thumbsup2
