Going back!

Hello everyone! We went to Disney last February and stayed at Pop and loved it! We are now in the early stages of planning our trip for November 2013. We want to be able to experience Christmas in Disney and our daughter's birthday is the 20th, so we want to be down there during that. I am struggling a bit between trying out AOA or POP. We love the food court at Pop, we have a good feel for the place and know what to expect. AOA is getting good reviews but from what I am reading, seems to have some kinks to work out. I'm really hoping for free dining during that time as well, but I know the offers for that won't come out for some time yet. Anyway, I'm a little rambly, but excited to be planning!

Yes, they have them. They are spread out all over, each building has some. So I would make a King bed your first request and then request the building you would like.

there are many more in the standard category versus preferred...FYI
So, if you REALLY want a king room and the resort is busy, I would book a std room versus preferred. JMHO. there aren't very many king rooms that are in the preferred category. And I definitely would Not request a particular bldg if a king is your most important request. I would make thatt your only request.

I like the idea of being close to the action
I had to buy another piece of luggage today and shoes and a floppy hat
The camping trip got a little hairy

I've stayed at Pop many times but usually drive, this trip I'll be flying

I have received my regular resort packet but no DME tags. Is ths normal or should I call? I've already reserved DME and given them my flight information. I'll be traveling solo, am kind of a heavy packer and would REALLY prefer not to have to lug my cases myself.

My arrival date is 1/26.

Thanks.

quick question about pop. I believe I read at one point that pop does not allow large group bookings (ie: brazilian tour groups/pop warner size groups). Is this accurate? My wife and I are booked in for a week near the end of january and from what I understand this is peak season for btgs. I also understand that the walls at pop are notoriously thin... I'm sure you can understand my concerns. So does this policy still exist? Did I imagine this policy in the first place?

We went to Pop in early Feb last year and there were quite a few Brazillians there (my husband enjoyed the bathing suits... We never encountered any large groups waiting for buses or anything though.

I want to say they take their own bus. We went during that same time in Jan at pop and we never saw any at the hotel.
