The food was warm by the time you get to your table it's cold
The staff was extremely helpful and ready to assist. Barely had to wait to be helped. Room was very clean, housekeeping always stocked us up with new soap and towels. Recommend to anyone interested in staying on Disney property, but wanting to save some money.
My wife and I enjoyed our stay. we plan to visit again in the future.
The hotel cast members are welcoming, friendly and extremely helpful. I highly recommend staying at this decade themed hotel. The larger than life yo-yos, bowling pins, Roger Rabitt, Foosball players, etc are so much fun to see and to photograph. The nearby lake is peaceful to walk around and the rooms are nice for the price paid. Plus, you cannot go wrong with the perks of staying on site. i.e extra magic hours, bus shuttles to the parks, Disney Springs and to/from the airport. We were sad to leave the resort just as much as we were sad to leave the parks.
I cannot believe Disney puts their name on this nasty motel and then charges what they do for it. The beds had springs poking out of it and it was like a prison cell
Over rated motel. Tiny rooms, horrible beds. Could hear everything from room above and to sides. And housekeeping vacuums at 10 at night and 8 in the morning--definitely not worth $200 a night, stay off property. Also find it funny everyone can get into this "value" resorts pools but even to get into the sister resort art of animation--which is easily accessible by a 2 minute walk--you have to have a room key--value resort customers don't deserve their own pools? Or those who stay there aren't good enough for the decor and festivities at the other pools?
decent hotel far walks to parking lot but other than that it was decent for slee
Needs referb. Beds awful, springs coming through. Had back pain everyday. Each time someone moves the bed creeks. Don't sleep in. They start leaf blowing at 7 am goes on for about 30 to 45 mins very loud. I've stayed here several times this was the worst.
Great value with Orbitz discount. Pillows were terrible, but we'll stay there again.
My stay was good. I realize it is a cheaper Disney resort so you get what you pay for. Although this resort has its own buses, you have to walk very far to get inside each park after drop off and you have to walk very far, after an already long day, to get picked up. I rented a car to go off property and found it easier to drive to the parks rather than wait for the buses. Room was very clean but lacked a closet and not a lot of dresser space. Room with two full beds fit two of us. I feel a family would be overcrowded in a double room because they have full beds, not queen. On site restaurant was very good and so was the store. Staff was very friendly. Not very close to the parks.
The retrofit of this old conglomerate of buildings was done well however the overall presentation was one of a budget motel. Rooms were adequate and had basic comfort. Rooms were accessible from parking lot but had to walk to center of building and then up to our floor. The breakfast food was AWFUL and reminded me of Army chow on a bad day. The prices were like star watching... they were out of sight and in another galaxy. We learned real quick to eat elsewhere. The only perk was the availability of buses to the various parks. Overall I would have stayed elsewhere and drove to the park.
Arrived and was greeted WARMLY, VERY NICE PEOPLE AND GREAT SERVICE WILL STAY AGAIN FOR SURE
This hotel is good if you want to stay on property and save money. It is busy.
This was our 3rd time staying at Pop Century. As far as your room is concern it is important to remember it is a value resort.it is efficient for sleeping as that is pretty much the only time we are there.
We loved the atmosphere and the disney feel. We would definitely stay here again.
Awsome. From start to finish love. Looking foward to come back love the barnd.
My requirements for a hotel at Disney World are... (1) friendly and helpful staff, (2) clean and accessible rooms, (3) ample and easy parking, (4) opportunities to get food and sundries. Pop Century is a great place to get those. I only had two complaints... first, late at night when parents bring their rotten kids back, if the kids are loud, you might hear it. It's not loud enough to wake you up, but it is loud enough to keep you from sleeping, if that makes sense. Second, I am not a bed expert, but the beds are not that great. If you are exhausted, you'll fall asleep, but if you are antsy, anxious, or excited, the beds won't help. I would choose this hotel again in a hot second.
Room was clean, beds were uncomfortable. One thing to note is they only provide shampoo/conditioner in one. I carried on and did not bring my own shampoo and conditioner as the moderate and deluxe resorts have always provided shampoo & conditioner. I stayed in the 90's area and you could see the fireworks at Hollywood Studios from the 90's pool. I requested a room close to transportation and on the 1st floor and got exactly what I asked for. I never waited more than 10 to 15 minutes for a bus. By far this was the best Disney Transportation experience I have ever had. I have stayed on property well over 15 times. Overall I would book Pop Century again if I was planning on spending most of my time at the parks. If I had down days scheduled where I would be spending time in the room or at the resort pool I would recommend upgrading to moderate or deluxe resort.
