Thank you, it's good to know they finally opened it.

MINIE&NANA: thanks for the info. on location....I'm not sure if we are standard or preferred...I will look into it. You're right though...either way they will be good rooms. What is in between the 70's building....is that a pool?

There is no pool between the 70's bldgs. It's a giant Foosball court, a Big Wheel, and a Mickey phone.
There are some good pictures of them here;

Wow! I was so behind and super surprised to find a whole new thread started. LOL! All caught up now!

You do know that the frozen coke machine has been replaced with tea ones right? Just being sure. Alot of people are upset about that, but some really like the tea. For me, I like neither. LOL!

For those worried about safety, I never go alone, but I do walk the resort at night or early mornings alone and have never even given safety a second thought. It is peaceful and very safe feeling to me.

Thanks for the great information!
You can get the fax # of the first page of this thread. I faxed my request for adjoining rooms 72 hours before we were to check in and there were no problems!

Are the new machines frozen tea or just regular tea machines? I have only had frozen sweet tea one time traveling through N. Carolina and we LOVED it . We had never seen one before and haven't seen one since.
I hope it is a frozen tea machine.

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)
It looks like a few of us Dissers will be at POP in December. My family will be there starting the 10th. It is our first stay at POP. We requested connecting rooms, non preferred. Can't wait!!!

We (DM62, DS12, Me) will be there Dec. 12-19 Last year was our first stay at POP. We really enjoyed ourselves! We've stayed at all the Mods and the biggest difference to us was no frige or coffee maker. We made due with a styrofoam cooler and brought a coffee maker from home. Have a great trip

Nope, not a pool as EpcotBill said. But the Goofy Jets are right in the area and your boys might enjoy them nearly as much as a pool.

Which jogged my memory about one of our favorite locations that might interest you. It's in the 70s Big Wheel building. If you refer to the map that Minnie&Nana posted for rooms 0101-0472 you'll see the rooms 0437, 8, 9...are highlighted and therefore preferred rooms. You can see they overlook a little park-like area. That little open square-shaped area is the playground. If you follow that path a little further you'll come out near the Goofy Jets and the Twister Game (and you're just a hop,skip n jump from the Hippy Dippy Pool and Everything Pop!)

The good thing is the rooms on the other side of the building are non-preferred. So if you are in 0435 or 36 you are literally just steps away from the same staircase that you would take if you were in the preferred rooms on the other side - without paying extra.

We stayed there twice (0435 and 0436) and loved it - quiet, with a playground and activities close by and not too far from all the action. It's a great place for kids who still need to nap and/or need a little space to "just play."

Just a thought...

Yikes I'm gone 2 days and you guys have started a new thread and are already on page 5.

Buckeye girl for your hard work and sorry about the job. A wonder window is getting ready to open up for you so pay attention to any new breeze you feel blowing in your direction.

I'll have my LGMH on my bags and stroller. Maybe we will pass each other
