    I declined housekeeping for the duration of my stay in exchange for the gift card at check-in, and had the DND on at all times, just like I do for every trip, regardless of destination.

    Is this everyday, or just for the racing times?

    If you use daily Housekeeping that will "serve" as your "Security Check".

    Yes, at 6. Early riser here too, and 6 is not early enough for me!

    We have a kiddo that wakes up for the day regularly at 5am here at home, which is 4am in Florida. At least we will make rope drop.... :)

    Oh, okay, at least I can get a hot beverage as I browse through my schedule waiting for the rest of my party to group.

    I'll be at POP 7/3-7/10 with my mom, 16 year old son and 13 year old daughter. We had stayed at POP a few years ago and we really enjoyed it. I just had to adjust our BB offer due to my kids crazy schedules. Was originally booked at CS because I wanted to try a a new resort, but no standard rooms were available and I couldn't justify the cost so I switched to POP. I was able to book standard and I would like a renovated room for the bigger beds but it's not a deal breaker. I'm excited to get back to Disney. Also looking forward to a Dole whip upon check in

    I had no idea they took TIW! I could've saved a decent amount of money :sad:

    The CM working at the food court while we were there told me I couldn't use my TIW card. I wanted to save money but still couldn't! I just assumed she was right and later asked on here and learned that she was misinformed. I wish I'd saved my receipts. Oh well. Next time I will be better informed!

    Bookmark this on your phone for easy access not only when deciding where to eat but for CMs who don't know their job.

    Quick Service credits do not work like table service credits. You can use all of your QS credits to purchase adult meals. We do this and find that sharing a QS credit is often all my 8yo daughter and I need, sometimes supplemented by a snack.

    Do what I do.

    Have such a low budget that $170 for a Disney hotel is uncomfortably over my range, but turns out to be one of the nicest I've stayed in ( in the country)

    This is my standard for a nice hotel

    I did not know they were doing this now. I am glad they are trying to keep things safe, but would have been startled with someone coming in my room when I wasn't expecting it.

    Hopefully it random and not every room...IDK...that would be a bit much if you ask me.

    We will be staying at POP for a short trip later this month. Does anyone who has stayed at POP recently know if alarm clocks are still in the rooms or can they be requested from Housekeeping? I am old school and prefer to use an alarm clock rather than my phone for an alarm and to see the time. Thank you.
