the computer pool is in the middle of the 80's and 90 buildings. we have stayed in bld 9 Sony walkman 3x, 2x we were on the back side of the bld floor 2 and 3 and 1x ground floor by the pool. We love that location! close to buses and we enter the food court fromm the front and through the gift shop. Close to laundry too.

We are staying at POP next April 2014 for Easter yahooooo!

Yeah, that stinks. But, you always make the changes to your reservation with a CM on the Disney reservation line. Hope that everything turns out ok!!

This has me wondering why you think you "got a little pixie dust". There are plenty of Standard rooms in the 70s and 4th floor isn't anything you would pay more for. Did you get upgraded to Preferred? What was your room number?

Money, or lack of, always gets in the way of a good time.

That and work. And you would think with all the working, there'd be more money.

Just back from first POP stay...

We were there 7/06-13. We were in 50's bldg 3/lakeview--just as requested! It was a quick walk to food court, busses, main pool & bowling pin pool.

We didn't eat much in the food court as I was worried having heard so many negative reviews. DD got the pre-made turkey sandwich from the cooler a couple times & the kids meal turkey sandwich on the goldfish shaped bread once. She gave both a thumbs up. I got the pepperoni pizza bread & the cheese pizza bread. Both were good. Had to try the tye dye cheesecake--yummy! CM were cheerful except for one. We just learned to not go in her line. It was never very busy. Even had drink stations & seating sections closed off our entire week.

Bus service was fine--no complaints. Resort didn't seem that crowded. We always go in the summer so was expecting more people. Even the parks didn't seem as busy as I remember from past trips. A/C in the room was fine. Seemed strange that it would come on for a minute then shut off, then back on a few minutes later & repeat. The motion sensor problem previously discussed on this thread didn't seem to be an issue. Mousekeeping was fine. No towel animals which I realize is just a little pixie dust, but at a resort geared towards families, I was a little surprised by this. I was also expecting lotion in the room (along with shampoo & soap.) Our last two stays were at mods so maybe it's not provided at values. The only lotion I packed was sunscreen so I used that.

We walked over to AOA once. Thought we were timing it well to grab a late breakfast (10:00) but the food court was PACKED & CHAOTIC!!! DD said she was glad we weren't staying there. The resort theme is fantastic. Lots of great photos ops. However, the walk to/from the LM section would be too much for us. Glad there wasn't a discount available b/c I probably would have chosen AOA over POP for our mother/daughter trip. We would have both been pretty miserable.

One morning as we were leaving for a park thru the gift shop a CM asked DD if she would like to dress Duffy. That just about made her day!

It was a good trip and we would recommend & stay at POP again!

Really hoping for a little free dining in November, Pop for us from Nov 7-11 and if there is free dining POR from Nov 11-14....

Stayed at AOA lion king suite last time, but walked over to Pop for dinner twice, their food choices are much better!

How do you go about getting a king bed??

King beds are a request only at Value resorts. You can request one, but since they are in limited supply and many/most are in the handicap accessible rooms it is not as likely you will get it. You may though, especially going a slower time of the year!

Something so little caught my eye on all of this...lol They didn't supply shampoo, conditioner and lotion?? According to the pictures on the website and room videos on youtube they show these. I wasn't planning on packing any of that stuff because the resort made it look like they supplied them. I don't want to pack any more than I have to. I need souvenir space plus I don't want to take a chance of everything exploding during the flight. See I told you it was a small detail lol

They have shampoo and soap. The OP just noted that they didn't provide lotion along with them.

They provide bar soap and a shampoo/conditioner combo. POP does not have lotion.
