    DD & I are taking a last-minute girls-only trip in a couple weeks to WDW, staying at POP. :woohoo: Our return flight home is very LATE (9pm). We plan to visit the parks in the AM and the POP pool in the afternoon on our last day. We'll need a place to freshen up before our flight home, and I have a few questions about this.
    1. Since I will have to check out at 11 AM, what do I do about towels for the pool that afternoon?
    2. What public-use facilities are available for freshening up at POP, and are there showers inside these areas?
    3. Is there a place to plug in a blow dryer, etc?
    4. Are the pool bathrooms/changing rooms hot or is the temp regulated?

    (FYI: I've already tried to extend our stay by one night so that we'd have a room to freshen up in, but there is NO availability for the night of 5/15.)

    :thanks:

    I know there are showers by the 50's pool. I would imagine there are showers by the other pools as well. They are located in the building with the laundry facilities.

    I have not used them for showering.

    If I remember correctly the restroom/shower area is heated and cooled.

    You may want to ask the front desk for towels. Just let them know your situation or bring towels from home and keep them in carry on bag.

    Thank you. I hope they'll share towels with us because I'm wanting to keep our carry ons as light as possible. I actually hope there is miraculously availability for the night of 5/15 - that would be the best.:thumbsup2

    There is a very nice locker room at the computer pool. There are 2 showers, a couple sinks and a restroom. There are curtained changing areas outside of the showers. I used them last year to speed up the process of taking our afternoon showers before dinner. There was never anyone but me using them at that time of day. Shhhh...lets not tell anyone else.:rotfl: ;)

    You will be fine. This is your last day. On your first day, go down and look at the facilities. Then you can determine what you will/will not need. The room towels are fine to take down to the pool until you leave. The personal stuff is up to you. But you'll be able to check it out before you leave.

    Disney doesn't kick you out right at 11:00. :goodvibes

    Well I'll be danged...4 stays at POP and I never knew there were showers at the pools!! Good to know for our Sept trip..planning on a swim before we head home that afternoon.
    I would suggest taking a few towels from your room when you leave that last day. Put them in your carryon bags. Then, when you're done with them after swimming, just hand them back.into the towel bin.
