Dec 9-16th POP

Just booked a GG w/ 19 friends & Family for Dec 9-16th at the POP.

Unfortunatley the same time as the Pop Warner - and most likely they'll be at the same resort. I was told as long as we were planning on spending the days at the park we wouldn't be affected too much by it. I'm not really concerened about the resorts/pools etc...because we don't spend a lot of time there anyway. I'm dreading the Food Court though! I can't imagine trying to get coffee and bagel with all those kids every morning.

It's 4th trip for me, DH, 3DS (10,8,6), & Grandpa and we're going with friends that are first timers and their 5 kids! We're so excited to show them the ropes and to see the parks at this festive time of year! Got Free dining w/ pin

I have said it before and will say it again, I DO NOT believe Pop Warner will be at Pop Century. They always stay at the All Stars, especially Sports. We have been for the last 3 Dec's and they have been at All Stars every time, with overflow at one of the moderates.

I took my cousin and her children last Dec for the first time and they had a great time. She is hoping to take them again next year.

I have read on these boards a post from someone who is involved with Pop Warner that they are staying at one of the All Stars with overflow at CSR this year. I don't recall which All Star.

I don't know what TGM is, but Touringplans.com says:
Sun Nov 29 - Sat Dec 5 - 4,6,4,6,5,5,8
Sun Dec 6 - Sat Dec 12 - 5,6,4,6,4,4,7

Hope that helps

Our trip was originally scheduled for Sept 19-26 for free dining. I've always dreamed of going during the Christmas season, but I didn't think it would ever be possible. Well, lo and behold, I check my email yesterday and I received a pin for free dining in December! So, i called immediately and moved our trip to December 5-12. Ready for the Christmas cheer !

What does it mean, "I received a pin for free dining in December"? Don't forget, I'm a newbie!

Thanks,

A "pin" is usually a 15 digit number that is sent out randomly by Disney Destinations for dicsounts and free dining packages. I got one in May and using it for our December trip.

I also got an e-mail yesterday for Passholder discounts for Oct thru Dec, but looks like the FD pin is better, if I don't have to change my dates (dang new position at work).
