No more trying to find a fridge swap (and hoping that they actually found the fridge when you got there!!!) LOL!

I've got a LOT more catching up to do but just wanted to POP in to say HI!!! and thanks to all who have contributed to this thread!!
Wellll....I wouldn't exactly call these things free!! LOL
If you look at the history of the room prices over the last few years, the price increases (IMO) have been significantly sharper than what the economy would warrant but I think Disney was justifying those increases with the additional 'products/services' it was providing. I think the biggest thing is all guests are paying for these products/services whether the need them or use them which is a win for Disney but not necessarily a win for the customer. Just my opinion, but I'm not seeing it as free!

Pool hopping is not aloud at any resort. Last year we walked across the bridge and ate at the AoA restaurant and saw the Nemo pool. It's beautiful!

Nobody is going to ask. If you're there, and the mood strikes, have fun.

I know the protectors of Disney rules will be in shortly but I don't care. You're not getting carded at any of these pools and that should tell you all you need to know about the Mouse's stance on enforcement of these very serious pool hopping rules.

I was there last week and there is a gate around the pool that requires your room key...so if you are not staying at AoA you can't just hop in.

Just BOOKED!!! Sep 15- Sep 21st!! Requested top floor 70's building preferred. Is that a good choice? I hope I am nervous about loving it since AOA has been my only Disney experience. But it was AOA and struggle to afford it or Pop and pay it down to a few hundred dollars today.

One more question... are the goofy jets working? Are they fixing them or are the permanently shut off?

I just booked a Bounceback to stay at Pop again in October, I can't wait! I've never been there before but I'm booked there in May - the CM recommended Pop as opposed to the AllStars as I said I wanted to avoid cheerleaders in October. For the mere upgrade price of $48 total, I'll be much happier at Pop and away from cheer madness!

Only 47 days until being there in May - so excited!
