    Two weeks until I'm at POP Century for 8 days. This will be the longest trip ever at a value resort, but it is also a solo vacation and I'm doing the marathon.

    6 days to go and so excited!! I've seen people say they wear/have something with DIS so we can pick each other out - does anyone on here know what that is?

    Haha--I'll be glad when I scratch it off of my bucket list. It's tough training.

    That's why I've only down halves. I haven't found enough time to devote to doing a full. Although that 26.2 sticker would look really good on my car....

    I'm looking forward to putting a 26.2 sticker on my car, but after this, three hours in a long run for training is my limit. It'll be great though leaving the race and resting on my POP Century bed listening to Stacy before I head back out for sushi at Kona Cafe.

    Of course, I may be stopping by the pool bar back to my room. . .

    and a 39.3 sticker is even better! Cuz people know to stay away cuz you are Goofy!
    Good luck to all that are running. POP will be very well represented.


    Does anyone know if the TVs in the room at POP carry ESPN? I get in about 6pm on the 30th. Oregon plays at 630 and ARIZONA STATE :cheer2: plays at 1015pm. Need to plan to scramble somewhere to watch if the game will not be on in my room.
    Thanks!

    My husband wouldn't go to Disney if they didn't, lol.

    I am almost certain all of the TVs carry ESPN, seeing as how it's owned by the Walt Disney Company and I remember watching game recaps with him during baseball season.

    .

    Sorry I should've elaborated more. Lol. People either use the Mickey head paint chips from Home Depot or make their own, either out of wood or other materials. It is however always in lime green. They then either attach it to themselves or place it in their window at their resort or both. Hope that clarifies it. :)

    Just booked here for one night, the night before we leave for our Disney cruise!! We've visited the resort before to eat at the food court, but we didn't walk around. So, it being our first time here, is there anything special we should do or check out? We aren't going to a park, just hanging at the resort. We will be there Jan 25.

    Thanks!

    Go to the lobby in the evening and dance with the cm's! They were doing all sorts of fun cheesy dances and the kids were all dancing with them.

    I'm at the airport on my way to Orlando and - more specifically - Pop! I do have a problem though, we've been on our honeymoon in America (from New Zealand) for a few days now and I just realised last night that I didn't print out our print-at-home Universal tickets. Any ideas on how I can print them at Pop century? We're not going over to Universal until the 5th January so I thought about emailing the tickets to my dad and getting him to post them but I suspect post from New Zealand might take a lot more than a week.

    Any suggestions would be most appreciated!

    Happy honeymoon! I did some googling for you because I'm bored and have nothing else to do. :p Pop Century does not have a business center or anything but some other Disney resorts do where you can access Internet and print for a fee. You can access all Disney hotels from the parks, so take an afternoon break one day and visit another resort to just check it out and use the business center.

    Oh yay, thank you so much! I feel so much better now. We can definitely spare some time to get over to another resort, I wanted to look at the decorations at some anyway.

    If you ask a CM at the front desk they may do it for you. I had them print out our airline tickets while we were there.
