Let me say, the first few posts on this thread are absolutely magnificent. I am booked at AoA for October, but am keeping my options open.

I saw in the Transportation section that you could walk to the Contemporary from Pop -- how long of a walk would that be. I am thinking of making an ADR for the day we arrive and think maybe walking there would be a nice, leisurely way to introduce the kids to the wonders of Disney.

Thank you.

Hi DaniMoon!

You can walk between the Magic Kingdom and Contemporary but I don't think you'd want to walk between Pop and the Contemporary. I think it would be well past a 5 mile walk, and you're going to be walking quite enough already.

There's a neat interactive map on Disney's website that will give you a pretty good idea of the distance.

https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/maps/

Hope that helps!
June

Thank you. I see where I made my mistake.

Also, thanks for the link to the map. It is now saved in my Disney Tips document.

We are booked at Pop for our May trip! My kids are going to love the theming here and I am looking forward to finally getting to try the tie dye cheesecake I am also planning for us to take a stroll over to AOA to look around and try out their food court too. We were initially planning to stay at Bonnet Creek for this trip, but we had to change our travel dates and are only going for six nights instead of seven, so we decided to just stay onsite and get two value rooms. We had a family suite at AS Music for our last trip and really liked it and had a good experience at that resort; but we want to have a new experience and try a different resort complex and getting a family suite at AOA wasn't something we could do for this trip. I had concerns about not getting connecting rooms or our building request since we booked standard rooms; but I am not worried anymore, just excited

We just booked this week for mid april and are super excited!
And if your POP stay was pre 2010, you will notice a few changes since the rooms were refurbised that year...new mattresses, privacy curtain, entertainment dresser, flat screen TVs, mini-fridges, etc.

disney handled the crowds well tho and put huge motor coachs on to transport the extra ppl sunday and monday nights. monday night we, an aussie cm and one other couple were the only ones on it going to pop. didnt need to collapse the stroller but instead he left it up and put it underneath.
Happy that you had weathered the dance troupes and had a great time! Seems like Disney handled the additional crowds well in regards to the busing.

Even in the midst of computer issues, you still kept your sense of humor about it! Pretty cool ...

January is a big tour group time....and this past weekend there was the National dance championship....in 2 weeks you will be past presidents weekend (which gets higher crowds), so the levels will drop off.... next weekend (2/23) is the princess half marathon, so people will be arriving for that. We were at Disney over marathon weekend in January, and did not find the parks unmanageable... many people come in specifically to just run the marathon and attend the other events. And the running events is different than the large tour groups.

Kelly, we usually give bldg numbers as well, although we have never been told that the 60s is all preferred... weird...

So wasn"t a big deal to push our trip up a day to save 250.00. We don't lose any days. Just the fact that we have 2 days off before we leave.
Always good saving money!!

Hi and to the POP Faq thread. Booking standard should not affect your ability to receive connecting rooms ..... have the connecting request listed first as it seems to be your most important, and any additional request(s) should follow in order of importance.

At check in, if you do not receive your request(s), ask the CM to move you and they will do their best to accomodate you.

Happy you like the FAQ thread. AoA looks awesome and its great that each resort is a short bridge away from each other... you can explore POP easily while at AoA or vice versa if those options are '"exercised".

We're going back! So excited for another Disney vacation. We booked a bounceback and in just a few days I'll be booking dining. I can't believe how fast the time went.
Looking forward to spending the next 6 months on the Disboards.

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO HOO. what a ride!

I didn't know they now have privacy curtains. Yay! I'm going with my 11 year old son in a couple weeks and this will make it so much better. I was a little worried about changing clothes in a tiny steamy bathroom .

Also, can someone tell me what will fit in the refrigerators? Will a half gallon of milk work? Thanks!
