Yay! A new Pop thread!! We won't be back until December, but I still have to look at the Pop thread every day... it makes me stupid happy.

Thanks so much for all your hard work, Buckeye Gal!!

Again, thank you, and you are very welcome!! It's always such a joy to hear that people have learned so much from MANY DISers here on this thread as well as knowing they had an awesome vacation! I just make sure all the good info is in one place for all of us to easily find....myself included!

I've read lots of success stories from people using the number in Post #1 (407.938.4039), so I personally don't think you have any need to fax again.

Thank you Buckeye Girl for the excellent work, I know how hard it is to keep info current on anything

Sorry about your job loss, but often a job loss leads you into a job you enjoy a lot more

Same here. I can not wait for December 7th. Even though I'll probably get there around 2 pm, I plan to spend the rest of the day just taking pictures of Pop. I can't wait to have that amazing Asian Chicken Salad or the Chicken Penne Alfredo. I booked quite awhile ago with Dreams but recently added an extra night and room location requests. I'm hoping to stay 4th floor (quiet), 50's (location and style), and pool view (better security instead of being on the back side)

Thanks! That's what I'm counting on! I was unhappy with my job, so I really think there's only positive things to look forward to now!

HI!!

I faxed Pop a few weeks back with my room request - I used the number I found in the first post of this thread and it work perfectly!

So the "better security" part of this post makes me a little nervous. It honestly wasn't something that I had thought of. Is there a concern? I would have booked the other direction of the pool for even more quiet (since I have 2 young children who are very light sleepers), but now I'm thinking I had better face a pool?

Security isn't a problem, don't sweat it.

Some people (if they're traveling alone - is that what you're doing, Minnie Lor?) feel more comfortable being on a more active side. It's not that it's not safe, it's just a comfort thing, I think.

Exactly, what ZeroToHero said. I had to extend my tip last summer and was alone at POP for 2 ngts - that's the only time I ever asked (at check-in b/c I made the reservation from our SSR room) for a room with a pool view b/c I would be more comfortable. Do not like being solo and liked having the noise of the pool nearby.

Even then, never felt unsafe for a moment. We've always felt safe at POP - we've been staying in all levels of Disney resorts for 30 yrs, and always feel very safe.

Try not to worry and have a wonderful trip!
