You're welcome. On the Coleman one we have, the pump is separate. Everything goes into one bag for storage and we've never forgotten it. I guess I haven't seen those with a pump that is inside or otherwise permanently connected.

I second getting the Coleman!! I used one in 2008 when my sisters and I took a trip together. It blew up fast and was quite comfy even. I wouldn't worry about forgetting the pump, as Sandi said it goes in the same bag as the mattress so there's not much worry of it being forgotten.

ETA: It will be me, dh, and ds6 (almost 7). We will be there for 5 nights.
Preferred rooms are located in the 50s, 60s and 70s... look at the map and see if anyone of these areas interest you more than another.. Would DS like the foosball/big wheel area? (70s)

The weather has been nice. A little rainy earlier today but not bad.
Thanks! Hope the weather holds for you.

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.
Awesome! How special that the first time staying on site will be with your family.

Pool hours vary according to season...Usually though POP allows swimming past the posted hours (of course no lifeguard. ) Unless someone posts today, you can let us know tomorrow night! I don't think you will have any problem using the pool.

I will be there May 3-11th with my youngest DD(10). It will be my 8th stay at Pop but just her 2nd. She hasn't been to Pop since she was 5 but has been to WDW 6 other times since so she really doesn't remember Pop all that much. She's really looking forward to returning. I was last at Pop in Jan 2012 so I'm really looking forward to walking over to AoA to check it out.

Here now!

It was a long day of travel. Kids are asleep at 8:10!! I'm going to join them!

We got some pixie dust and were upgraded to a preferred room!! Super close to the buses and classic hall. We're in the 70s front hall. Literally steps from the buses. I did request a room close to the buses

Pool was fun. Hard downpour at 4:45 for about 30 minutes. It was warm and humid. Quite a shock to leave 20 degree weather and now it's in the 80s!

Went to DTD for dinner WPE was amazing.

Rooms are tiny. Beds are hard but not the worst I've ever slept on. So far it's quiet. Buses were empty and everyone has been super nice. Even though it was in the 80s today I think our room temp is fine. I'm kind of cold with it at 68!

Yay!

Just arrived this morning and am having a great time. Flew in this morning. Was on the bus to the hotel with no line. Bus only had two other couples on it. Did online check in, so the packet at the hotel was done. Got our room, changed clothes, and off we went to Hollywood Studios. We were in the park by 1045a.

We are having the best time. This being a combo Anniversary/Valentines Day gift is the best. LOVE IT!

If I were you, I probably wouldn't wait until the morning to pick up the stroller if you want it first thing. Bell services can be very busy at that time. I would go grab it shortly before bed. It'll also give you the chance to make sure it was delivered! Just my .02. But that way you're not held up trying to get your day at the park started!
Sounds like I'm better off taking my suitcase to Bell Services myself if I want to be in control of my schedule... The reason for leaving the stroller would be so I don't have to deal with it and the suitcase on the way to Bell Services in the morning. Maybe I will make DS push the stroller while I pull the suitcase - or load the suitcase in the stroller!

At POP now!! Since Friday. Kids splash pool has been closed most mornings but open every day for the rest of the day. Yeah!

We've walked to AoA numerous times and have found the gates to their pool area have been left open every time. So... Pool hopping is an option... We have not.

Need a little pixie dust to help with this weather... Although even with the rain it's nicer than home.

Even if the gates are left open, the AoA pool is for AoA guests only. So still not an option.

Yay! DH just booked our 10/1-10/9 Pop stay!

Looking forward to so many firsts on this trip. MNSSHP, Keys to the Kingdom Tour, Food & Wine and the trying of some new restaurants. All that for just DH and I. Kids will be home.

Just because they don't stop you doesn't mean it's allowed. Disney has rules about pool hopping. Pop and AoA are not sister resorts, pool hopping between the two is not allowed.
