I had a little trouble checking in, new magic bands, but once that was taken care of, it was smooth sailing! I only have one complaint, the resturant, cold food, high prices, especially when you have an extended family of 10! Children's Movies at the pool were enjoyed by all .
You could go out on the balcony and watch the fireworks! Housekeeping was great! supplied us plenty of towels etc. as needed. We will definitely return to Pop Century Resort .

After a serious misadventure (showing up one day late for a stay scheduled at Shades of Green), we regrouped with a week at Pop Century. The price was very good for a Disney location and our expectations were exceeded by the property. You won't mistake Pop Century for a luxury hotel, but it is very good at being the type of place a family can stay on Disney property at reasonable prices.

Our group needed a lot of extra attention--we took lots of swims and showers to beat the Florida summer hear, and we needed towels all the time. Every time we requested service, they were there in minutes.

Food is available and of decent quality (again, please remember it is a "value-priced" location; there is no steak house!! The outdoor bar was a good place to sit and enjoy near the pool and the pools were clean and large.

Transportation to the parks was available and the kids (22, 21, 16, and 15) navigated the system easily when they didn't want to hang with us. Being on the property was a huge plus when it came to enjoying Disney.

We'll look at staying here again in the future...and we left with many fantastic Disney memories!!

I have stayed on other Disney resorts and had GREAT times, since we were only coming for 2 nights we decided stayed here. There were bugs all on top of our room ceiling(see the pic I attached). They did not seem concerned and blew it off saying "Oh it's by a lake". They switched our room for us and that one had bugs as well. But it was so late and trying to switch rooms with a small child late at night was too much. They did not accommodate us either by discounting the room or apologizing. Our family that stayed in a different building had a broken shower that did not get fixed until 24 hours later. The grounds and pool to this resort are nice but the rooms are nasty.

If I were to do another value resort it would be art of animation instead.

As a expected from Disney, my stay was great. The staff is always amazing and helpful. The pool and kids activities are great Everything was clean in the rooms, really no complaints. I haven't been to a Disney hotel in a long time and what really pushed me was the new magic bands they are awesome!! They connect everything to them, from room key to CC. I love the fact they have alcoholic beverages for the adults , it helped to wind down at the end of the day. Everything as expected of Disney. Also as expected of Disney was the prices in the hotel restaurant. I't like being in a park, very expensive. I guess that the convenience of not leaving your hotel, a huge convenience fee. We stayed for 3 nights and plan to go back.

The hotel is great as expected of Disney. I haven't been to a Disney hotel in a while, now they have alcohol drinks for adults. Which was great to wind down at the end of the night. The pool activities and movie were awesome. All employees very helpful as expected of Disney, my stay was great. BUT ALSO AS EXPECTED OF DISNEY, THE FOOD IN THE HOTEL WAS SUPER EXPENSIVE, just as expensive as the parks. For a small nesquick bottle of milk (miniature size) they wanted $2.39 imagine the big one. You can always go out to eat, but if you like the convenience of eating at the hotel, there is a big convenience fee. Overall it's a great expirence, I love Disney and anything with them is always a great expirence.

We stayed at Pop Century Resort for the first time. The standard room was large enough for the 3 of us ( 2 adults, 1 child). It had a nice hanging rack for bags, jackets, backpacks, etc. which helped with space. The service was excellent. We hung the Privacy Please sign but still received clean towels and toiletries in a bag on our door. When we did request cleaning, the room was clean with lots of extra toiletries. The food court had several choices and the servings were really too much to eat. The pool life guards were fantastic and ALWAYS on alert. The laundry room was convenient and very reasonably priced. The pool activities were fun. Our return flight didn't leave until night so after we checked out of our room, we hung around the pool and enjoyed the music, fun, and bar. The bath house was available for showers so we could leave clean and refreshed after a day in the sun.

This was our first stay at a value resort and this is hat I would recommend with small kids. The pools are more shallow and and the kids have a ball. Something going on all the time. Loved it. Would highly recommend.
