    Are there chairs to sit in - like in the pool area, and can still see the screen? I seem to recall someone saying you had to sit in the grass to watch the movies.

    Will be checking in on Monday - Can't WAIT!! :) :)

    Believe you do sit in the grass - the between the 60s and 70s ... so do not believe you can see it from the 60s pool. :)

    Have a great time! Are you going to the HP that night?? :goodvibes

    In February they had 4 rows of chairs to sit on, about 10 chairs per row. Everyone else had to sit on the grass.

    Subbing in! I'll be staying at POP the last week of August 2013 for the first time! I have always stayed at All Star Sports but the last time I was there there were big groups of cheerleaders and dance troups so it was a bit hectic and I'm looking forward to a better food court as well! Can't wait! :wave2:

    You're welcome! Like I said, this was in February, so it could have changed, but I got a chair then at least :goodvibes And I'm usually in the parks too, but AK closed at 6pm that day, and I got back to POP fast enough and figured, why not? :thumbsup2

    No, you can only enter 1 credit card at online check in. You'd have to do that at the front desk when you check in.

    Subscribing. We will be there Jan 10 - 13 - marathon weekend. Had booked standard, but with the Disney Visa Discount today, upgraded to Preferred Pool view! DH and I stayed one night several years ago before moving over to Bonnet Creek, and really liked the layout. We will move off site for six nights, then back to POP for the last night.

    Checked in this afternoon about 2-2:30. Quick and easy with online check in. We got our requested 60's section. We got to swim for about 5 minutes before they closed the pool due to lightning. Its been raining ever since. So we dropped some cash at the arcade and the gift shop, of course! Magic kingdom tomorrow!
