    first stay at POP in May. So excited. I loved reading through this thread. I tried to request a packnplay when I made my res but the agent told me they were in the closet area of every room already??? Is this true? also I am not requesting any special location, I thought I would like to be surprised, but we didn't pay extra for preferred. Will anyone else be there on mothers day?

    Yes it's true. You might have to request it but they're available.

    I'm pretty sure the roaches come up threw the bath drain. I have never seen one in our room until this trip. Actually We had 2. I woke dh up one time to get it. our room was spotless all 10 days except for the 2 critters.

    I didn't know they came up through they drain I thought they squeezed through the gap under the door. I guess they could also come in through the ventilation system.

    I just assumed it came from the drain since it was in the tub or maybe I watch to many movies.

    I'm allergic to roaches, hope we don't have any in our room. LOL

    Ours was on the wall outside the bathroom so I guess it's possible :confused:

    My dad owns an exterminating business and he always says if you see one of any kind of bug, you can ignore it but once you see two or more you should be worried so I tried to let it go !

    Re the roach- it was most likely a palmetto bug. They we very common in the south and look like flying roaches. They are native and there is no way to get rid of them.

    Says a New Yorker who's seen a few roaches

    Nope mine were roaches. The palmetto bugs are gross looking as well. But theses were roaches. It won't effect me staying at pop in the future. Bugs happen as long as they aren't bed bugs I'm good.

    Agreed, mine was definitely a roach but as I said, one of any bug doesn't bother me but once I see more than one we have a problem. So I won't hold this one against Pop.

    Well, roaches should bother you or anyone else. I didn't pay money to stay in a hotel with roaches be it a value or a deluxe.

    The problem with roaches are, they love to travel. They will find their way into your suitcases, clothes or other belongings you plan on bringing home and then they will explode in your house, multiplying by the hundreds and thousands.

    If my room has a roach, I better be getting a new room out of that building altogether!!

    I agree. I won't stay in a room if I've seen a roach. Guess it's back to AoA and hope there's no reports of roaches there. I know that they can be anywhere but I'm not gonna stay somewhere if I see them.

    17 days! Yay. Requested upper floor, lake view. Not scared of Florida roaches, Texas has ginormous flying rusty brown cockroaches. I finally got more or less used to 'em. Florida roaches couldn't be any worse. Still kill 'em on sight though.

    I will watch the bug 4d movie in Animal Kingdom.

    Whee! I'm happy about the extended EMH hours.
    That's three more hours at Disney for no extra money! Makes up for the $300 i decided not to spend on flights that would only have got me toi Disney 3 hours earlier. And on days that for various reasons I chose parks with EMH, leaving shorter lines for the other parks on other days.

    I'll be there on Mother's day! I am not sure on the pack & play, when we stayed there my dd was already too big to be using them. I don't recall seeing one in the closet, but I also wasn't looking for it, so it may have sat there unnoticed :)

    We stayed at POP in 2011 and our only request was 1st floor (we had a stroller) - we were in the 90s facing the computer pool. We were just about a 30 second walk from jumping right into the water! It was a small hike to get to eat & on the buses in the mornings, and we sort of cursed those extra steps to get to our room at night, but overall it was a great location that we got by the luck of the draw :)

    :yay: for a nice long vacation!! Have a great time!

    I just returned from a 5 day trip to the world (the Disney blues are hitting me). I did not think the park crowds were bad at all (of course my frame of reference is August crowds :)). More than likely it was all the runners.

    Have a great trip! :cool1:

    Kelly, this gave me a smile! I don't like roaches either, and would probably call down to change our room if I saw one.

    Hopefully the critters don't like to hitchhike across the bridge. :upsidedow
