    You wrote that the Bowling Pool and Computer Pool never have lifeguards – this isn’t necessarily true because when I was there in January, there were two lifeguards serving the Bowling Pool, and I was even there for a shift change, when one guard relieved another. Maybe it’s becoming mandatory for all pools, no matter what, to have a lifeguard.

      Hi, guys! Love the new page, but found a few inaccuracies. Like Emily, I am pretty sure it is standard now (after the drowning in hippy dippy pool last year) for there to always be lifeguards at all pop pools, and for swimming without a lifeguard present to be against the posted rules, right?
      Also, the rooms no longer have the dressers with the “four open shelves” — since the fridges take up two of those shelves…
      Thanks for all you do!

    One thing I love about Pop Century is that Art of Animation is just a short walk over the bridge. On a recent visit, the Pop Century food court was crowded so we opted to eat a few meals at the nearly empty AoA food court. After just missing the bus back to Pop from Epcot, we boarded the AoA bus and walked back to our room from there. We couldn’t use the pool at AoA, but we could enjoy the little playground in the Nemo area and we took many pictures with the characters from Cars.

    This is really cool. Are you doing this for other resorts?

    Thanks Jeff! Yes, we’re working on the other resorts now, starting with values and going through mods, deluxes and DVCs.
