Disney groups hotel properties into three categories: value, moderate and deluxe. Pop Century is a value resort, great for families on a budget. Themed around trends spanning the 1950s through to the 1990s, the exterior makes guests feel like they've entered a time-warp filled with popular fads, toys and catchphrases from decades past. Dive under the water jets at the Hippy Dippy Pool before watching complimentary evening screenings of classic Disney movies under Orlando's night sky. Meals are taken care of at the Everything Pop Shopping & Dining are - fill up on pizza, pasta, flatbreads and waffles, or order a drink at the Petals Pool Bar.

Neighborhood
Disney Pop Century sits minutes away from Epcot and Hollywood Studios, and is set back from the busy roads of Orlando, minimizing traffic noise. Complimentary shuttles run to various entertainment and shopping venues, while the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex just down the road is a technology-loaded place to watch an event, be it football, baseball, basketball, soccer, or any other athletic spectacle.
Hints and tips
Unlike many other hotels in Orlando, Pop Century has its own bus that shuttles guests to and from all Disney parks and Downtown Disney.

For the best access to the main pool area and food hall, request a room in either of the 4,000 or 5,000 blocks.

Just too big

The hotel had quiet clean rooms. But was so big that it was a long walk to the dining area and the tramsportation stops as well as the parking lot. Also probably because this is a value resort, the Disney transportation stops for this resort were very far from the gate of the parks. So it was also a long walk to the bus stop after a long day in the park.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

Be prepared to walk everywhere. With the confusing layout of this resort, try to map out the shortest route as soon as you can. And, that short route may be through the service areas of other buildings.

Great Location For The Price

Our stay was very short (two days) and targeted to spending time at Magic Kingdom so we were only there to sleep and eat breakfast. We were put in connecting rooms as requested. The rooms were clean and stocked well with towels. The set up for eating was very well organized and there was a good variety of food offered. Check out was easy. All staff members at the front desk check-in, Food Court and baggage area/bus area returning us to the airport were very friendly and accommodating. Our overall stay went very smooth and was enjoyable from the time we arrived to the time we left.

Fun for the Whole Family

I stayed in the 1950's theme section of the resort. Loved the funky wall colors and 50s rock n roll music playing all throughout. Room was clean but small - you swing the door open and you're inches away from a bed. Bathroom was clean but dated. Water pressure in the shower was good but it was weak coming out of the sink faucet. The hot water didn't feel hot at all. The water always ran cold. The pools were open 24 hours and staffed by a lifeguard for 12 hours. You enter and leave through the main building which has a lobby, concierge, a souvenir shop, convenience store, large dining hall, and bar. Food at the dining hall varies among Chinese rice dishes, Italian pasta and pizza, and American burgers and fries, and costs between $8 to $18 per person. Free shuttles to and from all of the Disney parks, Downtown Disney, and airports were also located at the main building. It all feels like Disney is trying to provide everything a family would need without having to go outside the resort. What makes all of this work are the employees - they are all professional, courteous, helpful and do their work like they're having fun.

Buy a souvenir mug and all of your sodas will be free since you have unlimited refills from the fountains in the dining hall.

Good location for a good price

Public areas of hotel showing wear & tear. Needs painting & better upkeep. Would have liked a small fridge in room. Magical Express was included in reservation & confirmed at check in. The day before leaving we didn't get our scheduled pick up for the next morning. I went to check in desk & we found out we did not have a reservation even though I had an [...] confirmation in my hand. They quickly put us on the reservation list for pick up. If I had not stayed there before & known they hang your pick up time on your door the day before, we would not have been able to leave in time for our flight the next day.

Make sure you tell cast member you do not have a car so that they place you in a room near bus transportation and the food court.

Good for families, cheap!

A good hotel as you only use it to stay in, and send all day at the parks.
