That's a matter of opinion. I believe the handicap accessible rooms will have handles/bars on the walls in the bathroom. And I believe there is no tub, but a shower that a wheelchair can roll into.

We've never gotten an accessible room, so hopefully someone who has will be along to explain in more accurate detail. I'm only going off memory of what others have posted here on the DIS.

I found some pics of an HA King room. Check out post #448 and 472 of this thread.

Thank you so much for those photos! At least I'll know what to expect. I'd rather have a King bed, even if it has the HA shower. I guess I'll just request "King room, 50s section" without a building specification and see what happens!

Thanks again!

Any word on whether they've made any arrangements to help with the closure of the kids splash pad pool now that it's closed? Hoping they'll allow access to the A of A one, but know is a long shot! And if not, is there any of the three main pools that would be better then the others for a toddler?

Good morning!

Our first stay at POP starts in 26 days!!!! So, I was looking into online checkin and saw that you can make requests for your room. Any suggestions? We booked a preferred room and I know nothing about what we may want to request. Any info you can give me is greatly appreciated.

ETA: It will be me, dh, and ds6 (almost 7). We will be there for 5 nights.

We just got back from a great stay at POP early this morning. The little splash pool was closed most of the week, but it re-opened on Friday. Not sure if it will stay open or not.

What area is closest to the bus? I will be traveling with two little ones who will be very sleepy by the time we get back to the resort each night, so I am trying to get the shortest walk possible! Thanks in advance

A last minute packer just like me!!!
Although...I leave for my next trip in exactly three weeks. I will be at POP very early! I have a 720am flight so we have to leave our house by 5am. I need to be TOTALLY packed the night before w/ the exception of my hair dryer & make-up. Those are the only things I don't have doubles of...and I despise POP's hair dryer. I have VERY long hair. I have already restocked my toiletry bag. And since it is so cold here, I'm thinking about packing my clothes now... I love knowing I'm not the only procrastinator (normally) when it comes to packing! Hope you have a Great Trip and a Groovy stay at POP!!

If you want to be assured of being closest to the buses, then your best bet is going to be to book a preferred room. Preferred rooms are in the front sections of the 50's, 60's and 70's closest to Classic Hall. You can get standard rooms that are fairly close to the buses too BUT it is not going to be a guarantee. That said, POP is really pretty good about trying to meet people's requests but it will also depend on how busy the resort is and what is available on your checkin day. So if it is ABSOLUTELY 100% critcal, then I would suggest going with a preferred room. The other option is book preferred and then when you check in see what is available in standard. I think it is easier to downgrade...IMO. because if you don't like what's available in standard, you just stay put! just my. .02
Good Luck!

At Pop right now. The rooms are smaller than I expected but not too bad. The kids splash area was open this morning.

The weather has been nice. A little rainy earlier today but not bad.

Joining in. Had to change our kid free anniversary trip at CBR to a family trip staying at POP in two rooms. It will be me, DH, DS 14, DD 10, DS 9, DD 7, DD 5, DD 4, and DD 2. We will be there in May. 3 more months to go. We have visited pop a lot. My aunt has stayed here twice and my cousins too. This will be the first time our family has ever stayed on property. Its a surprise for all. No one knew about the trip from the beginning so just going to continue with the secret. My MIL won't be able to watch the kids so that's why plans changed.

We have a Coleman twin sized air mattress. The pump is electric and works really fast. It is blown up in about 90 seconds. I'm not sure what you mean by "built in." The pump is separate from the mattress, but came with the mattress and works great. We've taken it to WDW, skiing, camping, and it gets used a lot for sleepovers.

We also have an Aerobed queen size mattress. The Coleman is better quality and the customer service is great. (I had an issue with a ring getting lost in the mattress and they sent a new insert package immediately at no cost.)
