    Luv Pop Century!

    We stayed at the Art of Animation right across the pond in January and enjoyed the resort very much, decided to book Pop Century because it was even more affordable and we were not disappointed! We checked in very early, were able to park our car and take the gondola to Epcot, they texted us our room number later in the day, it was seamless. The woman who checked us in was very helpful in giving us hints and tips, which we greatly appreciated. The rooms are adorable and quite adequate for 2 people staying over nite. The gondola line does get quite long but it moves constantly so isn’t an issue. The food is not outrageous in price, and they even have gluten free options for me. Lots to do for families as well. It’s a Disney resort and although more affordable than others it still maintains Disney standards.

    Perfect Value Disney Resort

    My husband and I enjoyed a perfect stay at Pop Century. It was our first time in a Disney hotel, and I confess that I was a bit worried because it was a value hotel. But I was completely positively surprised. The hotel has a great structure, two swimming pools, and excellent food options. The staff was always helpful. Thanks to the online check-in, we didn't even have to go through reception when we arrived, which was great because we arrived after midnight. The room was spacious, very clean, and more importantly, the floor was not carpeted. Another advantage was the Skyliner to HS & Epcot, amazing! Definitely will stay at Pop Century again on my next visit to Disney World.

    The Best Lodging in Disney World for Location, Comfort, Price, Value and Convenience.

    The best value lodging in Disney world for location, comfort, price and convenience. It is basic lodging with a whimsical design. There are 3,000 rooms divided into building sections. Each building section is dedicated to a decade from the 1950' to the 1990's. We were in the 1980's with a big Rubik's cube and other items to denote the 1980's/ Our room was large & comfortable mattress and pillows. Especially for a mid day nap or after a long day at the parks. The room was equipped with a refrigerator and coffee machine. We bought and stored our breakfast items the night before and had a breakfast in our room before heading to the Skyliner or buses. The Skyliner is the easiest and fastest way to get from the hotel to either EPCOT or Hollywood Studios. It made going to and from the parks effortless. We greatly appreciated the opportunity to pre check in and once notified our room was ready, was able to use my phone to go directly to the room and open the door electronically. There are many Disney Hotels in Disneyworld, but for the best combination of value, location and comfort, this is the BEST!

    We won’t stay here again. The theming is so cute and the location to the skyliner can not be beat. I had not planned on spending much time in the rooms. However, the rooms smelled of mildew And mold. I don’t know if there was previously a leak in the 50’s building. I changed rooms to one on the highest level and could not escape the smell. I became sick on the second day and had to spend a majority of my time in the room. I propped the door open and it did not help. This room will be in my nightmares. The bed was uncomfortable. The bathroom not really clean. If you have allergies , compromised immune systems or small children do not stay here . If I ever come back to Disney I will stay offsite And use hotel buses or pay for an Uber to the Parks. I do have to say that the staff was very friendly and accommodating but they could not do much to alleviate the situation besides moving me to another location and providing an ozone machine. This did not resolve the mildew mold problem.

    Huge disappointment

    I was excited to stay here, as I heard many people say this was their favorite resort, and even chose it over the French quarter. Big mistake. This place left a sour taste in my mouth for a “Disney Resort”. As for Pop- Pros: transportation to the parks. Cons: Our room was in the 90s. Awful after a day at the park. It is such a long walk. Why not build UP??? They don’t clean the rooms well. Housekeeping only comes every other day but failed to clean the dirt on the floor and they don’t change sheets for your ENTIRE stay! The beds aren’t comfortable just an average mattress on a squeaky wood platform. The walls are THIN. You will hear baby’s screaming, kids running, loud conversations. I can’t imagine how loud it would have been if we were closer to the main area. Food selection is decent but staff seemed miserable and taste is mediocre at best. Eat elsewhere. Guest services will no longer accept deliveries. I had to get a prescription delivered and they refused to hold it at the front desk until I could get there. You couldn’t hold a small brown bag with my name on it for 30 mins?? Overall: this experience was anything but magical and I regret staying at this location. I will advocate against anyone staying here. Please choose elsewhere. It may be a few dollars more overall but when you’re already spending so much, you want the experience to be happy. I would even think staying offsite would be better than this place.
