I just called Pop and they said the Kiddie Pool refurb was completed on May 3rd.

So, hopefully it is now open. I'll know for sure in FOUR DAYS!!!!

Same here - we sleep in a wind tunnel. In MN. I like to keep the windows open and the fan in front of it blowing the ice cold air on me.

Nothing better than freezing cold sheets!!!

We just checked out of POP on May 12th. The pool WAS still under refurb. Still had the green tarp screens up around it. We were in room 5110 which is right in front of the kiddie pool area. It was not loud and honestly I only remember seeing the workers there a couple of times. But we were gone alot.
It looked to be pretty much done from what I could tell. We saw them mostly just painting and such. But I really have no idea what they were doing to it to begin with. lol

so no construction going on at all in the 60's area? GREAT!!!! I was starting to get worried a little bit there... the one time I pay for a really upgraded room...I was just SURE there would be construction messes and noise everywhere!

Checking in tomorrow!!! Do they have boxed fans at all Disney resorts or is it just the values?! I can't believe I never knew about this before?! I sleep with a fan on daily more or less to drown out noise in my apt so I'll be inquiring this upon getting into the room as I tend to use the bathroom fan instead but not all resorts are the same with that.

Any pics of the new and improved kiddie pool?

We may be POPPING over for Christmas!! So excited! Went last year, for the first year in 10 or 11, and now we're privileged enough to come back, to celebrate our anniversary with the kids!

The box fan info is great - I can't sleep without one and I hate hauling mine down to Pop.

It's been a while but I recall a map of Pop showing all the connecting rooms as well as handicapped rooms - any idea where I can find it?

Also, how much per night to rent a cot/extra bed?
