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!

Booked a last-minute trip to Disney, and my first back to the park as an adult traveling with my husband.

Booked a last-minute trip to Disney, and my first back to the park as an adult traveling with my husband. I was skeptical because I wouldn't consider myself a Disney fanatic, and while we were looking to relax and have fun, I was hoping it wouldn't feel like we were in over our heads with kids and families (though of course they were expected). I was pleasantly surprised from how easy it was to board the --included -- bus to the resort, a seamless check-in process and how genuinely friendly all Disney staff are. I was also concerned that because it was a value resort, we would have subpar rooms or hear construction day and night -- but that couldn't be further from the truth. Our room, in the '70s Decade block, was quiet, recently refurbished, spotlessly clean and with a nice view of the lake. While onsite amenities consisted of family pools, activities and a dining hall, the app made it easy to order food and navigate our way around. The Skyliner is such a wonderful new feature that you can walk to from the resort and take to Epcot or Hollywood Studios. It only adds to the tremendous value of Pop Century, along with the highly organized bus system. (We never had a problem with rideshare pickups from the property, either.) I also like the gift card program, which saves resources and room cleanings (if you don't need them) and instead offers a Disney credit. We took advantage of this, but were still able to request extra blankets when we needed them. Sure, the oversized Disney icons, toys, games and other nostalgic "decade" relics are a bit cheesy but in a good way; it makes it hard to be cynical and signals that you're on vacation and it's OK to not take things that seriously. We were able to squeeze in this trip right before the park shutdown and before COVID-19 became serious in the U.S. and now that we're confined to our homes for endless weeks the memories of our Disney trip, including the hotel, have been cherished more than we realized. I would stay at Pop Century again without a second thought. Read less

The accommodation was clean and neat, uncluttered and updated. That being said it was still a budget hotel. In a way cheesy (yes I know it's a disney resort and catered for kids and family but I still found it cheesy. The way it was done up was over the top and the main pool was closed for refurbishment due to being low season. When we were there, there was some sort of cheerleader thing going on cos there was hundreds blocking the doors to get into the food court area. Food was good and I liked the variety, but after staying for 9 days I did get a bit sick of the same kinda food....not the hotels fault, I think our stay was too long. Staff were fantastic and friendly. Did get a bit frustrated with noises from other rooms next door and above....mainly elephants running around (kids). On the plus side the gondola were such a bonus for staying there and made getting to certain parks so easy, but they don't run early in the mornings so if you want to do early morning admission to parks you will still have to catch the bus. The other thing that irked me was that after very long day at the park, to catch the bus back all the budget resorts were the furthest walk from the park...that did suck. Overall was worth the niggling annoyances to save money and spend in the parks. Read less

We always stay on property but now we have to pay a parking fee. Less and Less perks for staying on property. We will be staying off property with future stays. Pop was updated and the room was clean.

This was our second time staying at this hotel and it is a wonderful value hotel. We had an amazing time. The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly and the public areas are always well kept. I mean, it's Disney, they know how keep everything magical. We stayed in the 70's, in the Mickey Mouse building and it was the perfect spot. It was just a short walk to the Food Court, buses and the Skyliner. Btw, the Sklyliner was a great plus. It's fast, you have a guaranteed seat (vs. the buses) and it's ride itself. Too bad it's limited to just two park. The bus system is great too. We never waited more than 10 mins for the park buses. The buses for this resort are not shared, meaning that they don't stop at other hotels before or after going to Pop Century so is not full when it arrives at the Hotel. The food at the Hotel was pretty good but nothing amazingly good. My only dislike is that the breakfast menu is very repetitive. I wish that at least one of the areas of the food court would change menu from time to time. Maybe is me but the first time we went on 2019 I feel that they had a few more things. They have a great variety of snacks, we just love to stop there right after arriving from the parks and eat a little something with the snack credits. In general, Pop is great choice, we had an amazing time and hopefully we can go back soon. Read less
