    POP is a great base in Disney World

    Just returned from a two week holiday at Pop Century. I’ve stayed at two moderate hotels in Disney World and Pop was my first value resort. Wow I loved it and I don’t think there’s anything value about this resort. It had everything you need for a family stay in Disney. The beds were comfortable, the room was big enough for 4 adults. The Murphy bed was as comfortable as the main bed. We had 4 adults in the room and never struggled with space. We also had the Murphy’s bed down at all times. The shop on site is large and has some great merchandise. The skyliner is very convenient and we had no problems with large queues to ride it. Buses ran about every 10-15mins. We stayed in the 80s building and we found this very convenient for getting to the buses, skyliner and the main areas. I would definitely stay at Pop Century again when I plan my next Disney holiday. I would highly recommend this hotel, it certainly isn’t a value resort in my opinion. It’s got everything you need for a great family Disney holiday

    Pop Century is our favorite Disney value resort!

    My husband and I love staying at Pop Century as annual pass holders. As soon as you turn onto Century Drive and see the vibrant colors of the resort, you feel excited and ready to immerse in the fun and playfulness of the Disney bubble.   It features a larger-than-life theme—Pop Century has ten buildings themed in the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s. These buildings are surrounded by a nice walking/running trail that skirts Hour Glass Lake. Our favorites are buildings 3, 4, 5, and 6 due to their proximity to the main pool, Classic Hall, park buses, and Skyliner.  We love the modern and refurbished rooms at Pop Century. These standard rooms have a mini fridge, ice bucket, plastic cups, coffee maker, supplies, and plenty of cubbies and storage.  We easily spent an entire race weekend with tons of luggage in these rooms and enjoyed it very much.  One of the most significant advantages to staying at Pop Century is the multiple transportation options. Like all Disney Resorts, it has its own bus terminals, with buses running to each park and Disney Springs every few minutes. However, Pop Century has some extra magic by connecting to the Disney Skyliner. It’s such a great addition and simple to get to Epcot!

    As always a great time with one minor glitch

    We generally make a yearly trip to Disney. We are hard core park goers so we are at the park at rope drop and return to the motel at park closing. As a result of our preferences we choose to stay at pop century or sister motel art of animation. The number one reason is both are serviced on the skylines which provides transportation to either EPCOT or Hollywood Studios. You may read all the positive reviews about pop century regarding the rooms, pool areas, dining hall and all the other amenities and we whole heartedly agree. If we didn’t enjoy the facilities we would not be returning guests. The reason for the review today would be a suggestion for management and a forewarning for perspective guests who choose to purchase the drink mug option. Disney will give you a drink mug which is refillable at the resorts/bar areas of pop century when you purchase a meal plan. If you choose not to do one of the meal plans the mug is available for purchase for around $20 bucks. Same rules apply and mug is available to use during the length of your stay. My minor complaint is that if you are dropping the money for the meal plan or the mug plan you should be able to have a working ice machine at the drink kiosk. We just spent 5 days there in 90 degree heat the entire stay. There was nothing more aggravating to have to try to search out a working ice machine for your semi-cold beverage. Obviously it is personal preference of the consumer but I prefer ice in my drinks on hot days. Many times there was no ice in any of the machines. From what I gather there is one of 2 things going on. The first would be ALL the ice machines are broken at the same time. I find this unlikely due to Disney’s attention to detail. The second reason which I highly suspect is that everybody who now carries a personal thermos bottle is filling their bottles up to the top. While eating at the dining hall I watched this happen. Many times they were aggravated too due to no ice in the machines. Other times I saw them fill up 3 or 4 thermos bottles. I would suggest either Disney invests in larger capacity ice machines so everybody can get ice or have a staff member over seeing peoples activities. The latter would be very unpopular. Other than my minor complaint I could not have asked for a better time. Yes it’s hot. Yes it’s crowded but it’s Disney Enjoy your stay!

    Amazing resort!

    Came here for my son’s 5th birthday! Loved how this place was designed! Seems a lot like All Stars Resorts except this one was more on the historic side which was awesome! They had a huge lobby by check in where you’d see all the artifacts framed between the 50s to 00’s! They also had quite the timeline of Walt Disney along with the accomplishments of Disney World! They had an Arcade, Cafeteria & Store nearby! This place was just great overall and was nothing but positive vibes! Swimming pool & Laundromat was between all the buildings named after 50s, 60s, 70s and etc.! Staff here were amazing especially when it came to cleaning and maintenance! Management check with customers to make sure everything is fine so 5 stars for communication! I had a damaged TV in my room so I made sure they were aware of it! No complaints about that though! Just keep up the great work!!! Tips. Stop by Walmart to stash a case of water along with some snacks and/or dry food because their foods and drinks can be pricey and it ain’t worth overspending daily! Other than that.. Great resort!

    Ok, don’t expect what you get at other hotels.

    Ok, room only gets made up every other day. Not ideal on a two night stay. We also stayed at Universal Cabana bay which was better value for money. Decent location though. Preferred rooms are not ideal as noisy due to location. We just got lots of noise all the time.
