Hi Echo Queen! Happy that ME made it to POP. And 60s lake view (and top floor) is the best!

Enjoy! .... well I can read that you are since you are sipping a drink at Petals...

I also am not crazy about being so far away from the two parks. While I don't mind the room, the theming, etc... I do think I will go back to a nicer overall experience next time. Being the last bus port at all the parks isn't awesome either when you're exhausted. I think this was the catalyst to get my husband to spend the extra for mod or deluxe and actually allow me to take the kid out of school in the off season. We've had a nice trip, but would like to be relaxed.
POP is not for everyone, as you may have found out. It can be hopping and full of energy, which for some is fine. Us Poppers don't like being the last bus stop either, but some resort has to be and POP was elected.

The food issue, however, is unacceptable. Hopefully the CM replaced your burgers with fresh hot ones.

We've had multiple POP stays and never had an issue with our rooms not being clean. And we stay in a busy season too (summer). While certainly use the reviews as one source of info, please don't view it as the norm. Suggest that while you are at POP, if you do have any issues, bring them to the attention of management immediately. Don't wait until you back home to get satisfaction.

Hope you have a terrific stay!

I saw this from last year on Disney food blog. I bet it will still be true. They say Super Bowl plays at all the resort food courts. Enjoy! Hubby and I are both sports-indifferent so will be at magic kingdom riding kiddie rides and monorail!

Katie. Pop Century first time feb 1-7. First disney trip in 25 yrs for me, husband last went 40 yrs ago. Hoping for quiet standard room with king bed, but we are small so could double up in a double! Quiet more important than king. Walk can be long. Lake would be nice but not necessary. Prepared to be happy regardless!

Thanks for the info. Usually Petals has the game on.

And that's a long time between trips! For a quieter room, go with Lakeview, upper floor (lake view is standard). King rooms are limited in supply, so it may be difficult but not impossible to get a King and a lakeview room. List your preferences in order of importance... and enjoy! I like your last sentence.

Interesting, this is the first I've ever read that All Stars and Pop food courts are not run by Disney itself. Anyone have more info on this?

Yes, the Pop 2012 map in post #2 of this thread shows that preferred pool rooms are in the 60's buildings 4 and 5 right next to the Hippy Dippy pool.

I have to say that PoP is the one Disney resort we've stayed at where we've never had a single housekeeping issue. They were always fast, efficient, and complete. We even stayed there over New Year's last year.

That said, YMMV and around the holidays, the guest load goes up, plus there are more seasonal employees working. That seems to increase the likelihood of running into an issue. Our biggest problem occurred during the holidays at CSR.... and was clearly related to the individual that worked our room for a few days. Occasionally you are going to get somebody who is not up to keeping to the Disney standard, or just has a bad day.

In any case I wouldn't let those few reviews taint your excitement for PoP.

Thanks! While AoA looks cool, I could stay at PoP every visit, and always be happy. The discount just makes it that much easier
