We took the plunge for April. Was going to Stay at the Pop but decided on POR. Skipping flying this time and going to drive.

Possible Pop Century trip – 12-25-2008,08:34 AM
Liberty Travel is listing a package deal.
7 nights at Pop, ( my DVC points are alreadt commited for 2009)
7 1 day, 1 park passes, ( my AP's expired at end of Oct trip, did not renew).
$200.00 Dis gift card ( if you travel before 3-29-09 and without a car, food court & CS will account for most of our food)
AND RT airfare out of Philly,( hopefully on SW and they allow me to use my FF account numbers).
$529.00 per person.
I may have to take the plunge.
Always wanted to try the PC and AS resorts, not sure I can handle 7 nights there though.
Any opinions ?
It sounds like a great deal price-wise. I have stayed at Pop 3 times. Once for a week and the other times just for a Saturday night to avoid weekend DVC points
You don't share buses with any other resorts
Rooms are clean and in good shape
Can't beat the price for staying on-site and getting all the perks
No sit down restaurants (and not a particularly good food court IMHO)
Very LOUD Theming--it's quite cute but after a few days the bright bold colors wore on my nerves.
LOTS of folks stay there--even with buses not being shared often if you are at the busstop at park closing you have to wait for 2 or 3 busses before there is room. And if you're using DME my suggestion is one of you gets on the check in line while the other waits for baggage. Otherwise the line at check in can be really tiresome if yours is the last bag off the bus.

I'm ok with no TS restaurant, this would be an 'economy" type trip ( saving resources for 13 night shindig in June/July).
I've stayed at POFQ, CBR and Dixie and didn't miss the balcony.
Buses. That's the sticking point. I may have to splurge on a car. Maybe use ME and then rent a car ovrr at S&D for five days.
What dates are you guys there in Oct ?
Ken, we'll be there Sept 30 til October 8th. Do you think you can join us?
If not those date and you're thinking of going sooner, let me know your dates (and your deal to see if we can get the same deal) and maybe Tom and I will sneak an additional trip to disney so that we can spend some time with you guys.PAM
et & al are planning a late Oct trip - first disney trip with new baby - and we're plotting a possible visit with them.
the possible pop trip I'm looking at would most likely be Mar 19-26. The price is for mid=week travel dates.
