A Review of Disney’s Pop Century Resort

Pop century poolAs anyone, we have our favorite resort to stay in while at Walt Disney World and that resort is Disney’s Pop Century Resort!

This resort is ideal for the family on a budget or the couple who doesn’t spend much time in their room and does not need to be pampered.

Disney’s Pop Century Resort is a Disney Value Resort hotel featuring giant icons from many of the 20th-century popular culture crazes.

Rooms are located in 10 brightly colored and decorated 4-story buildings. Each building is trimmed with huge letters representing iconic sayings from the decade they represent starting with the 1950’s through the 1990’s.

The kids can cool off at the Goofy Kiddie Spray Area, an interactive play fountain located between the ’60s and ’70s section.

The rooms will accommodate up to 4 people plus one child under the age of 3 in a Pack ‘n Play. These rooms have either 2 double beds or 1 king bed. Room amenities include: an alarm clock, in room wall safe, iron and iron board, table and chairs, telephone, television, voice mail, vanity area with sink, hairdryer and high-speed internet access (for an additional fee). Mini refrigerators are also available for a fee. All rooms are non-smoking. Wheelchair accessible rooms are available upon request and rooms designed for the hearing impaired. Coin-operated self-service laundry facilities are located at Disney’s Pop Century Resort. Also, you can get valet dry cleaning and laundry service which is available for pickup from your room.

When choosing a themed room, you have a choice or either a standard room or a preferred room. The preferred rooms cost $15 more per day (subject to change) and the only difference between them is that a preferred room is closer to the food court and the pool. Disney’s Pop Century Resort has a souvenir shop, game room, and a food court.

The food court offers breakfast, lunch, dinner and an ice cream shop. Refillable mugs can be purchased for unlimited hot and cold beverages during your stay. These mugs can only be refilled in the food court of your resort and not in the parks. Disney’s Pop Century Resort has the largest food court of all the Value Resorts. Free bus transportation is available to and from all the parks and Downtown Disney from this resort.
