“Disney on a Budget”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

We came for a short Disney stay and decided to maximize our time at the parks rather than pay more for a room that we would barely be in. Over 4 days and 3 nights, we barely saw the room. Very happy with that choice. The beds have clearly seen thousands of guests and are in need of replacement. Otherwise, it was a great place to stay.

There is a massive pool if you have more time to kill. The biggest advantage of staying on a Disney property is the extension of the Disney experience and customer service. Shuttle buses run throughout the day, most come every 20 minutes to/from parks.

The level service is amazing when dealing with Disney. If there is a problem, they want to know about so they can address it. This is a great option if you want to be on Disney's property without splurging on the more extravagant resort while still getting easy access to the parks.

This hotel is soooo big and has so many rooms on property! Very convenient with the shuttles to and from disney. Next time I would rather pay more than having the hassle of getting lost to what building to go to and being confused getting to our room. Hotel food was amazing. The veggie lasagna and nachos were amazing. Staff was great and very helpful! Cheerleaders were staying here in another building but didnt seem to bother us because we must had seen ten groups staying at this hotel for a competition going on that weekend we stayed. Hotel room small but werent in our room at all besides to sleep and pass out after a tired day at disney.

Room Tip: Near check in get room

This is the second I stayed at value resort at Disney and again I enjoyed. My wife and I went to Disney for our honeymoon. To save money we stayed at the Pop Century Resort and the staff was excellent as usual, they did not make you feel like you were at a less expensive hotel in that they provided the same excellent Disney service you would even expect at one the highend Disney resorts. A great added bonus was that we stayed at the '60's part of the resort in that my wife is a big Beatles fan. I also enjoyed the Magical Express to and from the Orlando airport and not having to touch our luggage after getting on the plane in Cleveland.

Our stay was perfect.. The room was clean and comfortable.. New TV's and updates since we visited in 2008. The food at Pop food court was tasty. We are going to try the new Art of Animation this week but We LOVE Pop..

Room Tip: As close as you can get to the main building so you don't have to walk far to check in..the bus...

See below for comments. Pools were excellent and in good location.
Lots of activites for the kids throughout the day. You can checkin ahead, so checkin there was very simple. Staff was very courteous. At Animal Kingdom and Disney Hollywood, I was surprised about how there were so few workers in the stands where there were huge crowds, especially Dinoland.

Room Tip: Lots of Rooms, get a room in the 90's not far from the free buses to the various Disney location...

Nothing more than a bed factory, like an outdated butlins holiday camp without the entertainment. Although a Disney resort no signs of any characters wondering around. Canteen food style, massive cues not enough tills. Early see staff members wandering around. Bed linen old & dated.
Best thing about pop century was the lavish souvenir shop.

We've seen many reviews both good and bad. For us as a family, our stay was SUPER. No bugs, or stuff in the room - it was for the most part very clean. And we chose to stay in the 70's with lake view and it was quiet for the most part. We did encounter the next door people who were loud and banging on the walls, but when we made the manager aware of this - they did jump on it right away and even offered to move us if we wanted. The noise did stop. All was well.

It was worth every penny - and it is about $1000 less than moderates btw. !

Room Tip: If you want quiet, choose the 70's area, top floor. If you want excitement and don't care ab...
