“Clean and reasonably priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

All Disney resorts are kept to the same standards of cleanliness, maintenance and customer service. This resort is in the value category. The price is reasonable but this requires some long walks to the amenities and parking lot. The transportation to all parks is by bus and can be 20-30 minutes of wait time. The restaurant is a large food court that can be very crowded at breakfast.

Pop Century is the best of Disney's "value resorts." Typical Disney quality, everything spotless, and great themeing throughout. Lots of photo opportunities and stuff for the kids to see and do. The restaurant is a cafeteria type, but has good quality food, and is affordable for families. You can walk over to the new Art of Animation resort to check that out if you have the time. Highly recommended for families on a budget.

My family has stayed here many times. We love this resort and always love coming back. We were actually staying off Disney property over Spring Break and decided to stay two extra nights just so we could stay at Pop Century. It is more than a hotel it is the overall experience of staying on Disney property. I would definitely recommend this resort. The kids have a great time, it is fun and everyone is nice. The rooms are not huge, but they have added mini-fridge to the rooms which was a nice surprise!

Room Tip: Standard Rooms are just as close as Preferred rooms. I have always stayed in preferred but chose sta...

Pop is one if the least expensive hotels on the Disney properties. You get what you pay for. Rooms are very clean and up to date, but small. A two bedroom has two full beds and small bathroom. Don t expect much room for four people, but if you re going to spend your time at the parks,who cares. For $150 x night, you get a modest room for an average price to be on Disney property. If it s your first time to Disney,it s worth it. If not, hotels off property provide more value for their price.

Pop Century always has friendly, helpful staff and a great food-court. Lots of great choices to choice from at the end of a long day in the park. One of the best, by far, gift shops at any of the Disney resorts. Large selection of toys, shirts and souvenirs. Housekeeping clued it that we were there for our anniversary and our male housekeeper brought me a beautiful floral arrangements made from the towel art. Pop Century staff goes out of their way to make you feel welcomed and at home!

Everything in our life is about comparison. We rate our experiences based on good or bad things that happened. So this review is based on the last time I stayed in one of the Disney Resorts. This Pop Century is way better that the All Stars, that were not bad at all, but this one is much better. The location is fantastic, my room was far from the pool but close to the lake with a great view of the Art of Animation Resort. The room itself is big enough, even for 4, and very well furnished so you don't feel claustrophobic inside it. The only negative comment I have is the distance from the parking lot to the room that is a little inconvenient when you are walking with lots of baggage but it does take any point from the overall experience of the hotel. As you always imagine in a Disney resort, they try to make your visit the most enjoyable possible. I flew in a different flight form my family and it takes a little time to setup my Disney Magical Transportation but the people over the phone were awesome and made the reservation properly. What else to say??? If you are uncertain where to stay, I can advise you that you will be very glad of staying in this hotel.

This was my first stay at Pop Century; I have previously stayed in the Dolphin, Coronado Springs, and off Disney property. I found this resort to be an excellent choice out of the value choices. The rooms are small but clean and accommodating. I requested a room in the 70's building. In building 10, we were super close to the main hall, it is quieter since there is no pool directly below this building, and there was a nice lake view. There is nothing super special about the food court or gift shop but they have what you need and are open until midnight. I will say the breakfast was our least favorite meal: powdered eggs, blah bread, and way too crowded. My sister's family stayed in the newer Art of Animation. Their hotel did have better design and pools, but the standard rooms are the same size, more expensive, the walk to the main hall are longer, and their food court was constantly overcrowded. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others with this advice: bring your own pillows (beds are fine, pillows are atrocious) and bring a coffe maker (none in room, coffee at food court is OK at best).

Room Tip: Request the 70's building if you want a quieter room. Bring your own pillows!
