Standard Pool View Room?

Going to stay at Pop June 4-11 this year for the first time. We stayed at All Star Movies last time we were at WDW. I requested a standard room when I made my reservations through Travelocity but, they gave us standard pool room view instead, I wasn't charged extra either. Does anyone know if the pool view rooms are really noisy? I would imagine they would be. The pool was crazy all hours of the night when stayed at All Star. Maybe I should call to see if they can change it? If I call Pop a month ahead of time do you think that would be sufficient?

Excited to stay at Pop, looks like fun!

Hi! Pool view rooms definitely tend to be noisy so if that is an issue i would suggest you change your reservation. FYI ...the standard pool view rooms are located in the 50s and 80/90s. Are you sure you were not charged for std pool view?

I have no experience with booking thru Travelocity so can't comment on how to handle your reservation. Are you able to contact Disney directly to modify it? If you really want to change to a standard room (which are located in every area and building) I would do so earlier vs later.

Hope you like Pop as much as we all do

Yes, if you like cheesecake, then you really should try it!! It is awesome! I also like the carrotcake.
Many here like the 'king cupcake' but personally, I was not a fan... It wasn't 'bad' but just too over the top for me.

AP rates vary from season to season and year to year.

Currently the AP rate is 25% at POP for most stays now thru June 3, 2013.

Yes, we love the tie dye cheesecake as well.

And, even though you can get the chocolate croissants at other venues, we think they are the best at POP!

Our take on the King is that is it very rich, we like it, very little banana filling but it was just right... it is a dessert best to be shared.

I can't wait to try all these desserts (chocolate croissants?? I'll be having those for breakfast as much as possible!) By the end of the trip they're going to have to roll me back onto the plane with the luggage lol!

No worries .... With all the walking one does at Disney, you are sure to burn it off!

Those chocolate croissants are my breakfast almost every day
