“A TRUE VALUE Resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

My family and I stayed at Pop Century from Nov 12th - 17th. This was my first experience staying at a Disney Resort although I've been to Walt Disney World numerous times over the years. Took the Disney Magical Express from the airport (highly recommend) Upon arriving, we went to the "Online Check- in" front desk, which the friendly staff quickly expedited us keys to our room and gave us all information needed, as well as answered questions. (Check - in online before your trip, saves time)
We received a map of the resort and quickly found the building in which, our room was located.
We found the room to be extremely CLEAN. This was a priority to us, since we traveled with my 8 mos old son, who likes to crawl and pull himself up on everything. They provided a pack n play for our baby (Graco). Housekeeping was diligent in keeping our room tidy daily. They even left towel "animals" and decorated our window a few times using "Disney" items from our room. The rooms are a bit on the small side, we traveled with a stroller,car seat, 2 suit cases, diaper bag, formula, baby food etc. and still fit in the room comfortably.
The only drawback was the bus wait returning to the resort from the Downtown Disney area and from the "Very Merry Christmas Party" at Magic Kingdom ( over an hour to get back to the resort!) Most of the time, buses came every 15 - 20 minutes.

This resort is a TRUE VALUE!

Room Tip: We stayed in the 50's building, on the 4th floor, our room over looked the kiddie pool. Convenie...

Great resort for the price. Great transportation to the parks and a very friendly and helpful staff made our stay very pleasant.The room was on the small side, but it was large enough for two adults and included a small refrigerator. The grounds are well maintained and the pools are very nice. We would certainly consider staying here again.

Pop Century is a great resort for families. We spent 7 nights here with our 2 children, ages 5 & 7. The rooms are not large, but had everything we needed. We upgraded to a preferred location so we would not have far to walk with tired kids at the end of the day. Check in was a breeze (we did the pre-check in online). The Disney transportation system is very slick and we loved not having to "share" the bussing with another resort. The Disney dining plan was well worth the convenience. The dining options at the hotel were very good. We loved it and would definitely stay here again.

Our family of 4 has stayed here on 3 occasions now. We have had rooms in the 50's, 60's, 70's wings. The rooms are equal in any wing. The food at the cafe is good but get there EARLY as it fills up very quickly. It is also very busy late in the evening. We have always gotten 2 connecting rooms at this value instead of staying at a mod or deluxe. 2 rooms at a value is cheaper and gives us more square footage than a single at the more upscale resorts. Plus we get 2 bathrooms. This resort is themed for kids. They love the gigantic cartoon characters throughout the property. There are kids activities led by castmembers at the 60's pool. It is a nice opportunity to take a break and keep the kids occupied. Bring Disney window clings to decorate the large window in each room. It's fun and also helps identify your room at a glance.

Our first time at the POP, but not our last. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the food court was great, no looking for a place to sit. Bus service was wonderful, hardly any wait at all. The staff was excellent, very helpful and friendly. Not what I expected at all, a real surprise!

I've stayed numerous times and love the atmosphere and the staff. The property is always clean and well-kept. Now that the rooms have flat-panel TV is a plus. The food court is close and very well presented.

We loved staying at Pop Century! We were a little different than the usual demographic (52 and 49 with no kids) but really enjoyed the theme of the resort and got a big kick out of the 60s, 70s, and 80s decor and the music playing in each area. We often sang along to the "oldies". The price was great as Disney was running a promotion for November at 20% off. Be sure to check disney's website and click on specials. The room was very clean, well maintained, and the view was great (across the lake looking at the Art of Animation resort). Our room was very quiet, as I had called the resort a few days before arrival and requested a 4th floor room with a lake view and told them we were a 50ish couple who wanted quiet. Of course, preferences are by availibility and not guaranteed. The food court was nice with a fairly good selection of food(prices were high but typical for Disney) but they give you a very large portion so we often split an entree and got and extra side. The gift shop had alot of merchandise to choose from. The arcade was small but fun. There was alot of walking because the parking lots can be a long way from your room depending on where you stay. You tend to sacrifice a close location for peace and quiet. The staff was great, very helpful and friendly. I definitely recommend Pop Century.

Room Tip: For peace and quiet, request a lake view in 70s bldg, 4th(top) floor.
