    They have not yet up-dated their web site to reflect this change.

    It's true! ; I accessed it from the front while waiting for a bus to AK.

    It sounds awesome, for those who need it. I'm sure it can be a good thing for those emergency emails and scheduling things. However, I, personally, would not even need it when I go there. Why would I, when I could be going on rides and seeing shows? When I vacation, I vacation. I don't worry about anything but which ride I should go on next, what times I should reapply sunscreen and where and what I would like to eat.

    I think that is great, I am all for vacations to get away from everything. But at night I like to be able to surf the web and see whats going on in the world. I was going to get mobile hotspot put on my phone when I go down to Disney in December. But now I don't have to. :cool:

    Great news! While I'm on vacation I tend to not worry about my internet and just go have fun, but it's good for smartphones so you don't use up your data, and of course if you want to upload photos/ reports :) I don't normally do that though.

    Good stuff! Even of vacation I have to check email and a couple other things daily. It's nice not to have to use up my phone's data plan to do so.

    I made extensive use of the in-room WiFi at Pop last month. Every night before bed, I spent time arranging and rearranging my FastPass+ reservations for the next day or two. Sadly, Disney is forcing us to get smartphones to use the new system most efficiently. Since the in-park WiFi is so spotty, having a good connection in the room was very helpful.

    That's definitely useful, and a great addition to it but people should try to leave the Internet when they're on vacations...

    This would surely make the Pop Century stay more convenient and fun, not it terms of doing internet for the things not related to Disney, but for checking out more of what this place has to offer to people and tourists. While they are in their room, they could plan more efficiently because of the internet, without having to bother much people and without spending much time asking other people who can attend to their questions of about, about, about, where, where, where, which, which, which. Internet will make it easy all. Not only that, socializing and sharing Disney experience will not have to be days away, it can just be now hours or even minutes away.
