    Sorry I just saw this. I've only come across this once at Pop it was in Nov. late at night when the food court was getting ready to close we walked out the door and there they were. It was a great surprise there were 3 different ones. I have no idea if it was a one time thing or if they do it all the time.

    I've been dabbling in photography as a hobby in recent years and FINALLY pulled the trigger on some post-processing software. Here's a shot from my January 2014 trip:

    Pop Century pool fence photos - Hippy Dippy Pool

    Outside the fence - entry on the corner of building 4. No Magic Band readers on this fence either.

    Note: The children splash area is also fenced, but I didn't take a photo of it.

    I hate that they put fences around all the pools.

    Resort Airline Check-in moved to back of Classic Hall

    This change was new to me since my last visit in July 2015. They were working on this area at that time and I wondered if they were moving/expanding the Resort Airline Check-In to face the rear of Classic Hall, somewhat similar to the setup at Art of Animation. The old Luggage Assistance remains in the porte-cochère area.

    me too!! yuck! ugly! glad to see no magic band reader yet. I hope never. my husband likes to get up early and sit in a lounger near the pool reading.. not go in the pool. just be there. and let me sleep in. it's his quiet time.

    I also hate that you can't swim when you want, as long as you're quiet. once in a while we enjoy a night swim. that's the good thing about the quiet pools at the moderate resorts.

    Probably not anymore. I believe the moderate quiet pools are getting fences and closing times as well.

    We were shocked to find the Poly pool closed at 8 in Feb and when we asked they said this is pretty much year round now. Why one earth would you close a pool that early when parks stay open till 8 or later? Many people like to take a little swim when they get back.

    We sorta seen one at AoA back in August. A CM was cleaning off tables and drew a mickey on one of the tables with her water squirt bottle. My 15 yo grandson spotted it - drew quite the attraction of passer-byers. Love these "little" surprises :)
