We are staying at POP for the first time in Jan. (37 days!!)
Had a couple of questions..

Does POP offer loaner bedrails? I have read that some resorts do.
And secondly, my DD (4) loves Lady and the Tramp. Should I try to request a room in that section, or is it close enough to walk to from anywhere? We are only staying 4 days, so won't have a lot of time for meandering around the resort.

I have the opposite problem. I just got a schedule change notice from American Airlines. I am now arriving at MCO at 11:00 pm. After fetching our bags and transferring to the Magic Express, I'd estimate that we will arrive at the POP after midnight.

Will anybody be there? We are arriving for the marathon, and I imagine that the hotel will be full. Does Disney overbook? Think they will still have a room for us arriving that late?

Will there be bell services? Will the kitchen be open? I'd appreciate any insights for anybody who has arrived at WDW that late.

This is probably an odd question but this is our first stay at the POP. Are the comforters on the beds like a down comforter with a duvet or no? I'm weird about covers and need to know if I should bring my own from home.

In the 50s area there is a DSA near the doghouse - so anyone of the 50s bldgs (1, 2, or 3) or bldg 4 (60s).

For any of the lake view rooms in bldgs 2,3,4,5,6 there are several DSAs that line memory lane.

Refering to the 2012 map, note the DSA and smoking symbols (ignore the now removed DSAs by Classic Hall).
Thank you so much! Took me over an hour to finally find the answer I was looking for

Yes they do...
and I would definitely request the 50's section then and you could even ask for Bldg 1! I often ask for specific bldgs and get them. bldg 1 is one of my favorites! Good Luck and have a great trip!

Yes, I have arrived that late and while not ideal it's not the end of the world.

I guess it's always possible for them to overbook, but I think that is RARE! If you are truly concerned, log onto the website and see if you can book a room during your dates. If you can, I'd say don't sweat it. I haven't heard of people not getting a room when they show up. Normally, Disney knows they've overbooked a hotel and they contact people to upgrade...so again, If I were you I really wouldn't worry.

Yes, there will be bell services. Late night staff is limited and BS looks closed but there will be staff there to help. The Food Court closes at midnight. Most of the counters close at 10pm. the pizza and burger options are available until 11pm. after that, it's basically just the cold case items, desserts, bakery stuff & prepackaged items and beverages. HTH!!

No, they are a bedspread style. Not super thin...but what I would consider a true bedspread. Sorry

Preferred Rooms at Pop Century

Which building would you request? I don't really care much about the view but would really like a quiet(ish) room near the food court. I have a preferred standard (aka not pool) view room booked.

I'm thinking I want top floor, right? I'm calling to add my flight info and thought I 'd put in a building request while I'm on the phone.

Thanks!

I like bldgs 5, 4 and 1 in that order. Now that said I have had a standard pool view during June in bldg 1 and it was NEVER noisy. I hardly saw more than 5 people in the pool. On occasion there would be, but not very often. But you said you have a preferred room. I think bldgs 4 &5 are the absolute closest to classic hall which has the food court and I cut thru classic hall to get to the bus stops. Good Luck with your request!

Someone will be at the checkin, foodcourt closes at midnight, not sure about bell service.

On our recent stay we were in building 3 lakeview. It was awesome to be able to see the fireworks from both Epcot and MK. It was about a 3 min walk to classic hall!

Bldg 3 lake view (and top floor) rocks!! We usually always request 4th floor (and ask for an end room) - its ultra quiet.

Have a fabulous time and happy anniversary!!

jsmia! As other posters have said, bldg 4 & 5 are super close to classic hall. also either 6 or 10 (70s) would also be very good. Pick the theming you best perhaps? And yes I would request the 4th floor - those upper floors do tend to be quieter.
