Obviously this is a budget hotel but for the price it was perfect. We stayed over new year so obviously the crowds were massive but the hotel was exceptionally clean and the rooms were well sized and had everything you need.
By far the best aspect of staying on site is the free bus transportation to all the parks and other areas such as downtown disney. The buses come every 15 mins, were never very late and they save you huge amounts of time parking and driving. It only takes 5-10 mins to get from pop century to any of the parks and even on New Year's Eve when there were over 200000 people at epcot the buses ran smoothly.
The swimming pool area is very large and nice but expect kids to be there. We found the smaller pool near the fifties area was never crowded and was a lot quieter. The outside pool bar at the main pool is also nice if you're in the mood for a quick drink and don't want to go far.
Our only complaint would be that like all places at Disney the food is designed for kids and Americans, so if you in the mood for some nice vegetables instead of hot dogs and burgers then you need to look hard. We caught the bus to Hollywood studios then the free boat to the dolphin resort and ate in their restaurants.
Bottom line is if you're going here to spend most of your time at the theme parks and just want a nice clean well set out hotel to sleep and maybe sit by the pool, then pop century is perfect. We would definitely come back.
