It's been awhile!

We just got back from our Dec. 16-23rd trip on Monday! We stayed at AOA one night and then Pop Century for the rest of the week. We booked standard but we were placed in the 4th building on the very end near the lake RIGHT beside the bridge to AOA. We made that trip a lot. This was our 4th? time back at Pop and I cannot get over how much I love it, I have to say that I would choose it over LMS rooms. Food court was great, walk to the food court was great, view was great, wifi was great, crowds were great, it was just fabulous. I want to go back now!

Room requests at check-in time?

I didn't make a request when I booked and online check-in is not working.

Are they accommodating of room requests at check-in time? I'm not too picky, I just want 60's, 80's or 90's and I don't want 40's or 50's. What are my chances?

I called yesterday and added 2 req and they are just that. It's easier if they know ahead of time vs telling them at check in

It's recommended to add any room requests to your reservation either when you book, or any time up until 3-4 days prior to your arrival. During online check-in is not the time to make room requests. At least with the old Site, the new one may be different.

The new site asks which section you prefer, if you want ground floor, pack and play or near transport or lakeview. I think you can select 2.

Welcome back! Happy that you had a wonderful time! Your room location at POP was great ....Depending on if you were on the backside or facing the courtyard and bridge would determine if it was a standard or preferred room, but no matter it is a terrific location! We stayed in Bldg 4 in August, right around the corner from the elevators on the second floor, and we loved it.

We might try to stay a night or two at AOA, just to experience the resort and pool, but then move over to POP, as you did, for the rest of our stay.

A first timer at POP!! Hope you have an amazing time. But sure to check out the resort grounds and the lobby shadow boxes!!

Very good, as you are flexible between 3 different areas. As dansdad stated, if you are more than 4 days out, would suggest you make a room request in advance.

They will do their best but it really boils down to how busy the resort is. There isn't a 40's section, so you won't get that. The 50's section is 3 bldgs and is the largest of any section as all the others have only two buildings or possibly even just one. The 60's is pretty popular for requests, but the fact that you want 80's or 90's...I think you won't have a problem getting that as they are the least requested sections. Good Luck and I hope you enjoy your stay!

So excited! Booked today at POP for April for 6 nights using the Disney Visa discount. Only $698.40 for the room. I think its a wicked deal. Priced out Port Orleans Riverside at $993.94 and Beach Club at $1,986.06. For the price difference I am very happy to stay at POP. Almost went with Port Orleans, but for the price difference that takes care of my 6 day ticket.

When you order it will ask for the info they need. It is pretty basic stuff. Time of day you would like delivery ect.
