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!

Tonight work be the 5th night of our 7 night stay at Pop Century. We frequent Disney and have stayed at: Port Orleans French Quarter Caribbean Beach Coronado Springs All Star Movies Polynesian Contemporary Grand Floridian Beach Club Yacht Club I was torn on where to stay this time. The kids were interested in a SkyLiner hotel and we spent a week at Caribbean Beach while it was under construction. I like the looks of the Riviera, but my husband and oldest son weren’t joining us this time, so it seemed like a splurge for just the 3 of us. Especially with all of the COVID restrictions! We had stayed at Pop 6 years ago and liked it fine, so I just prepped myself to “settle” for Pop this trip. Well, I must say I was pleasantly surprised. This has turned into a lovely trip. This hotel is a bargain! We did our for a preferred room, and we are in the 60’s section. I am going to list the pros below. -The location is fantastic. It is a short walk to the buses, main building, and SkyLiner. -The rooms, although small, are thoughtfully laid out and extremely clean! -The bus service has been on point. Possibly our best experience with Disney busses. The one time the wait was long at MK, we just jumped on the bus to AOA and walked over. It was great! -The SkyLiner is the bomb. The line is long at park openings and closings, but it moves quickly. -The pools are warm, so swimming has been an option on cold days. We don’t really love the pools at value resorts, but the boys have enjoyed themselves this time. -There is a TON of storage in the rooms. It helps not make it seem cluttered. We lift the second bed EVERY morning to enjoy the table. It makes a meaningful difference. -The gift shop is big and has a great assortment. -The beds are so comfortable, and the shower is perfection. Cons: -It’s a little loud here. It hasn’t been a game changer, but why/how are the walls so thin?!? -I’m not impressed with the food at the resort. We have ordered delivery and jumped back to the parks and other resorts to eat. -I opted for every other day cleaning, and they accidentally skipped me the first time even though we had left a tip in a cute mouse-keeping envelope.😜I called late that evening and they did send someone, but she dropped off a pile of towels into my hands, grabbed the trash and left. No coffee, cups, new bar of soap, etc. They did remember us on the second go around and the lady was precious and grateful for the tip. She even swept! (I happened to be in the room) -They lost my magical extras card and vouchers, and offered me no replacement. They blamed it on COVID. We love the discounts it offers, and I was shocked they didn’t have a better solution. -My magic band wouldn’t work when we got here. It took a long time to fix them, and then they still didn’t work on our first park day!☹️ Luckily, Epcot guest services fixed them for good. I believe you typically get what you pay for. By this standard, Pop has exceeded my expectations. It isn’t perfect, but the beds are comfy and the location is ideal. I can help but be thrilled by all of the $$$ we saved by staying here.

A block of ice had formed on the back bottom of fridge. No daily room service, food court was only open to pick up food after ordering on app. Not a problem. (covid) Pool was nice, not too crowded. Staff were great, Enjoyed a cocktail or two at Petals. Rum Rum Reindeer was very good! Nice bartenders. The sky-liner was accessible and easy to use and pleasant way to travel to Epcot. No busses from Pop to Epcot. This was my second time staying at Pop and must say it was better than the last time. I would stay again, and enjoyed the preferred location. Read less

I’ve been to Disney World more than 10 times in the past few years - & I only haven’t been able to go more because I don’t live in the USA - & this hotel is certainly the most magical thing ever. It’s not the most luxurious of Orlando, of course, but it is such a heartwarming experience to visit this place. The people working there are always kind & the hotel is clean & nice. The food is not fancy & sophisticated, but it’s damn good. With the COVID-19 pandemic, we couldn’t visit this year but we sure will as soon as this passes. My review counts for at least 5 stays in this hotel - if not more - & I assure you it’s a very good choice. Thank you so much for the things I’ve experienced in this hotel. I hope to visit again.

I stay here every time I visit Disney. Pop Century has always been my go to place with my family and friends who I bring yearly. I love the Sky Liner it is defiantly a game changer. I usually have no issues except this time, I know Covid-19 has impacted everyone and I feel bad for all who have been laid off there due to this. I understand staffing was cut and you have to do things differently now but, the rooms should still be maintained and safe for your guest. I was disappointed that I could not enjoy my vacation due to the injury I sustained in my room. They did tend to my issues but, not before I had to go to the front desk a few times which made more walking an issue. I was a tour guide for two friends who were there for he first time and it was very difficult to do that when you can't walk without being in pain. They did give me a scooter to use for two days but that showed difficult due to having to navigate the winding lines and people were making comments and upset that it was taking longer because I never drove one of those before and had difficulty navigating it by the time I reached the ride I had so much anxiety I did not want to even ride it at that point . I still had to do a lot of walking regardless to and from getting to parks. It just was very painful and had to cut my time short due to pain. I felt bad for the two who I was suppose to be showing around that they now had to shorten there days just to help me out. I just wish I could have enjoyed my vacation better as well as my friends who I felt I let down, especially when you spend the money you do to stay there on vacation. I do love Pop Century and would still stay here just hope my visit in February goes a lot better. Read less

The pop century resort was great! The sculptures have so many great throwbacks! The room was nice and clean! I love the rain fall shower and their wonderful smelling shampoo! It honestly was just a beautiful hotel with friendly, helpful staff!
