    Happy you like the FAQ thread. :thumbsup2 AoA looks awesome and its great that each resort is a short bridge away from each other... you can explore POP easily while at AoA or vice versa if those options are '"exercised". :goodvibes

    :cool1: Something extra to celebrate while in the "World" :goodvibes Have a fabulous time!! :yay:

    :woohoo:We're going back! So excited for another Disney vacation. We booked a bounceback and in just a few days I'll be booking dining. I can't believe how fast the time went.:hourglass
    Looking forward to spending the next 6 months on the Disboards.

    I didn't know they now have privacy curtains. Yay! I'm going with my 11 year old son in a couple weeks and this will make it so much better. I was a little worried about changing clothes in a tiny steamy bathroom :rotfl:.

    Also, can someone tell me what will fit in the refrigerators? Will a half gallon of milk work? Thanks!

    Ok POP friends. I am beginning to plan my February 2014 trip. We love the POP. My dilemma is should we try the LM rooms at AOA? We walked over last year, LM wasn't open yet. It looks so far from the main bldg though. We have a 5 year old who would love those rooms. I'm so torn . Any thoughts?

    That's bad very scary, it's not easy to say what I would have done,; but he should have been tackled and held for security and banned from the resort for life. Those people don't belong around families who are just there to have a safe family vacation.

    The rooms do seem a bit of a hike (especially bldg 8!), that said, if your princess really wants to stay in them, I say go for it! They are only young once.:goodvibes Ask for the bldg 7 lake view on the side closest to the lion king suites... the resort is so colorful and the attention to detail is all there. We explored the resort on our visit last August.

    And since you love POP, it is an easy walk over the bridge to visit. :hippie: Hopefully by Feb '14 the LM rooms will be included in discounts (under the current bounceback they are not).

    The hair wrapping cart is open from 4pm until 10 pm. :hippie:

    The pool hours may vary depending on the time of your visit. There's also a difference between when the pool is officially open for use and when it is staffed by lifeguards. I think there are summer periods where it's allowed to use the pool at all hours; other times of year there will be an official opening and closing time.

    ...and then there are the unexpected pool closings for, uh, accidents. :goodvibes

    Officially 7am-11pm (august) but we have been there when people are in at 6 am and long past 11pm (no lifeguards after hours) but POP is lenient about the use of the pools. :goodvibes

    As jcarwash reminded me... I forgot to add that the hours do vary according to season, the 7am-11pm was in August. :)

    I'm not sure on the exact time but it seems they get there early evening maybe 4pm. Seems they are there when we come back to the resort and sometimes we are back for the night around 4 or so. Where other times we are night owls.

    Looks like I'm joining the POP thread :yay: I was originally booked at ASMu for May but after seeing the AP rates that came out, I'm saving by switching to Pop - and I'm so excited about it too!! Now I need to re-do all my resort research, and I hear there's tie-dye cheesecake to be had?? :cool1:
