No need to leave grounds

Pop Century is one of the "value resort hotels", meaning it's cheaper. But cheaper is more fun at this resort. Sure, it only has a food court instead of multiple sit-down restaurants, but the food court offers plenty of choice. And the architecture is out of this world! The hotel is themed after the pop culture of the decades the 50's-90's. The 50's section has giant statues of bowling pins. The 60's section has flowers all over, including a flower-shaped pool. The 70's section, which I stayed in, has giant 8-Tracks hiding stairways. The 80's section has silhouettes of breakdancers and puts you in a giant arcade game. The 90's section has a giant internet screen. I went for New Year's Eve only and didn't even feel the need to leave the hotel. I had pizza delivered to my room and saw the fireworks over the top of the neighboring building.

At the food court, try the multi-colored "tie-dyed cheesecake".

1st time to Disney World

Fabulous Magical Express brought us to resort at 3:30am. The staff was great & the food was good. Room cleanliness was slightly above average. Bad thing was they don't have a coffee maker... Shuttles were easy to catch to all the parks but they put the shuttle stops for Pop Century pretty far from most of the park entrance.

Made use of mini-fridge by stocking up drinks and fruits from supermarket to save some food costs at resorts.

pop century

Location in the 40's bldg, was great--close to pools, lobby, and transportation. We were located away from noise. The food court was reasonably priced and the food was pretty good. There was a playground for the children and nightly movies. They also loved the pool.

busses were really busy when the parks open and just after the parades in the evening. Less busy later in the morning or early afternoon.

Birthday getaway

We have stayed at many of the disney resorts over the years, this was our first time saying at Pop century. Our room at the resort was clean.It was easy to get around the resort and to the parks. 3 pools to choose from. We used the pool in the 80's section everyday of our stay and it was never crowded. Plenty of tables and lounge chairs to choose from. Buses to the parks are a great feature, never had to wait more than a few minutes at the bus stops. Food court at the resort was just okay. It was always busy, and they could have used a few more food choices. Pop is a good choice and a good value when staying at disney!

Last minute getaway

Took a chance on getting a room on Disney property at the last minute for Labor Day weekend, and scored with this room! Great price, and the resort is very nice. Rooms are standard hotel fair, no bells and whistles, but we didn't spend a lot of time in the room. Only complaint is the beds. Full size not queen, so if you have a family, it's probably going to be tight quarters. Good food court, but hate the timer on the soda machines. With so many people using them at one time, it's ridiculous to have to wait to fill up after every person! Cast members all great as usual. Used the bus transportation a few times and it was fine. All in all would recommend this resort and plan to go back again. Having stayed at numerous other Disney properties, this is a good choice for the value hotel level.

Take the bridge over to Art of Animation for breakfast or dinner. They have more than the fast food fare at the Pop.

Good Disney Budget Hotel

Good Disney budget hotel that keeps with the basics. Our bed was a little bit older with it starting to sag in the middle and the themeing INSIDE the room wasn't as "Disney-esque" as it could have been (we stayed in the 80's, and there was only a poster with 80s Disney stuff on it), but you don't necessarily go for a budget hotel to stay IN your hotel. The outside themeing was great, with the Rubik's cube stairs and it seemed the building had been freshly painted and as always everything was clean. It was also nice that the rooms now have (working) fridges that we were able to stock with drinks. Overall a good central place to stay on property when all you need is the perks for staying there (transportation, EMH, free parking, etc) and don't plan on being inside your room too long.

The Art of Animation Dining room is better and it's just a short walk across the pond/"lake".
