Disney's Pop Century Resort

Walt Disney World, Orlando

The hotel

A fantastic family favourite, there is plenty to delight every member of the clan at this lively resort. The memorabilia, crazes and catchphrases that defined the 20th Century are everywhere you look - from jukeboxes, bowling pins and 8-track tapes to laptops, mobile phones and VCRs. The giant Rubik's Cube® is something to look out for, as well as huge models of Disney characters from the different eras. Baloo and Mowgli from The Jungle Book (in the 1960s section) are our favourites. Each building is a larger than life 'time capsule' of POP culture, featuring slogans encouraging you to 'boogie on down' or 'have a nice day' - not exactly hard to do! In the food hall, the kids can enjoy their favourite food, whilst mum and dad will appreciate a cocktail at the pool bar. When you're not exploring the theme parks using the complimentary Disney Transport, head to the 60s-themed Hippy Dippy feature pool and let the kids splash for hours in the pop-jet water fountain. To ensure you don't waste a minute of your holiday, bags can be dropped off at reception even before your accommodation is ready. They will be delivered to your room later, leaving you and the kids with nothing to do but start having fun straight away!

As first time Disney goers, we were amazed at the space and features of the newly renovated rooms at this resort. The queen beds are apparently oversized because my mom and I had more space than in a normal hotel queen. The mini fridge was the perfect size, and the bathroom area is so private.

As first time Disney goers, we were amazed at the space and features of the newly renovated rooms at this resort. The queen beds are apparently oversized because my mom and I had more space than in a normal hotel queen. The mini fridge was the perfect size, and the bathroom area is so private. The staff was amazing, and the walk to the skyliner was easy from our room in the 70’s VERY close to classic hall, which meant easy bus access as well. We’re planning on a moderate resort next trip since we’re staying longer, but this will definitely be our “short trip” spot!! Read less

We had asked for a top floor room on the My Disney app long before check in, but did not get one. The room was very clean and looked nice. There was the noise from the other bathrooms surrounding our room. Even from the sleep area of our room, we could hear what sounded like someone using the restroom in the next bathroom stall instead of someone in another hotel room! Unacceptable. And then to think, if I can hear them, they can hear me... The other problem we had was that the Magical Express was not so magical. Our luggage did not arrive until late the next day. I had to wear the same clothing to the parks the second day that I had worn on our flight and to the parks the first day. Not a good beginning to our stay. On the dresser there was a note from the manager of the Pop Century asking people to let them know of any problems so they could resolve the problems while people were still staying at the resort. I noticed the note and sent a message after our luggage finally arrived. Someone did call and left a message apologizing but it was not the manager. No other resolutions for our problem. Some of the food was good at the food court but some not so good. We did love the Skyliner and took it to the Disney parks several times. Unfortunately, the Magical Express was not so magical for our return to the airport. The bus that arrived was already partially full and only about half of the people waiting for the transportation to the airport were able to board. The bus driver had to call for another bus. Fortunately for us, our return flight had been delayed and we were not in a hurry to get to the airport. Everyone boarding the bus is required to have a print out of the confirmation for the Magical Express so you would think they would know the exact number of people to expect waiting for the bus and have enough room for everyone.

We were lucky to stay at a refurbished room and were so delighted to experience this new room. It had a Queen size Murphy Bed along with a Queen size bed and a new mini refrigerator. We fell in like with the room and all of its amenities. Lots of room and a fabulous barn door which separates the bathroom/changing area.It was silent and kept the light out while someone was sleeping while the other could shower and dress. A definite win-win for us. We want to compliment Nathan, the Manager who was thoroughly delightful in getting our Magic Bands correlated to our room and food on the first night. He kept popping through our visit, in such good ways and we so enjoyed visiting with him!! Another wonderful experience was with the Singing Spirits Pool Bar, Yana our Server went out of her way to accommodate my husband's request for a citrus drink with some sour punch to it. Yana hit it out of the park and was so spot on in making him so happy. She had him taste two of her concoctions and he was able to pinpoint which one he liked. Such attention to detail was noted and Yana fit the bill!! Yana was super entertaining and delightful to chat with. My drink was so tart and delicious too! We were pleasantly surprised with our stay here and definitely want to come again. . Read less
