    Might be a ‘value’ resort but not always worth it for the cost

    We did really enjoy our stay at pop century. The staff are on the most part lovely, although some checkout staff were less than happy to be serving anyone- not very Disney. Very easy transport and loved the skyliner which proved such a valuable commodity to have and places this hotel above the all stars if you want to stay on site. However, cleaning was a problem. We stayed for 14 days, and although they say that cleaning is limited, I don’t think this is acceptable for any hotel to not clean your room at all during your stay, especially at the cost that Disney charge for their hotels. We had new towels every 2 days. In the 14 days they changed our sheets once but did not do any other cleaning of the room. The picture of my socks were of clean on socks once I had walked around the room for half an hour. Our suitcases were stored under the bed and when we pulled them out they came out covered in dust, which had meant that clearly that hadn’t been cleaned prior to us visiting. This is a real shame that has prevented us from wanting to give the resort a higher grading. The food was okay but limited and if you want anything that is remotely healthy or normal food that isn’t burgers and chips you are better off elsewhere.

    Amazing Stay and Blast from the Past!!

    We were finally able to take our family trip to Disney since originally planned prior to COVID and it did not disappoint!! From the moment we booked, our incredible travel agent, Robin Ayers with Dream Makers Vacation Services helped us with every step!! She helped us with Utilizing the Walt Disney app, which was the key to success navigating Disney World. 😊 When we arrived at Pop Century - the staff was immediately helpful, extremely friendly and there for any question or request. The overall theme is fun and provoked a ton of fun memories and questions from our kids about when we were younger. Pools were nice, atmosphere was fun and relaxing, food very good and well priced. They had daily entertainment and activities, the store had great souvenir choices and we would definitely stay here again! My only complaint would be the rooms are small. But easy to overlook with all of the great things at the resort. Thank you Pop Century and Dream Makers for helping us have a Magical Disney trip!!

    Top of the pops

    Great resort. The rooms are clean and with the second bed stowed away it gives you more room than those hotels where the second bed is permanently out. I stayed in block 7 in the 70’s section which was near to the main hub & short walk to all transportation. If you plan to rope drop the parks get up early, the buses come frequently first thing in the morning. The Skyliner line moves quickly and starts in Pop century and not over in Art of Animation. There is limited dinning option at the hotel. However, Caribbean resort & Riviera Resort is a short ride away on the Skyliner.

    Great budget stay at WDW

    We stayed here for 6 nights in July. I have stayed here several times in the past. We were in the 70s section, very convenient to Hippie Dippie pool and the Skyliner. This hotel really is a good value given the Skyliner access and it's not as sprawling as other resorts. It's not fancy but it's great for families and we were satisfied with the food court options since we were spending most of our time in the parks. One thing to note is that the housekeeping service has declined. I don't think we had any during our stay, and had to find someone to ask for towels and trash removal.

    One of the best Disney Hotels with a very good cost benefit price

    Cost x benefit worth! The Hotel is really beautiful, most of the employees are very pleasant people, the environment is happy and cool! The rooms were refurbished, it’s clean, the bath is good! There is a big place with some possibilities to eat. And the localization is top ( with skyline inside the hotel)!
