Pop Century

When it comes to choosing a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, there are several considerations to think about. Price point, theming, amenities, and resort layout all come to mind. However, there is one resort on the Walt Disney World property that might get overlooked as one of the best resort hotels on the property.

Disney's Pop Century Resort is a value-level resort that is conveniently located on the Skyliner route, it has a compact layout, great amenities, and remodeled rooms. Let’s look at four reasons why you should check out Pop Century Resort for your next Walt Disney World visit.

1. Fun Theming for All Ages

Pop Century Resort is themed after the decades of the 1950s-the 1990s. Across the resort, you will find buildings decorated with groovy flowers, 8-track tapes, massive bowling pins, giant Yo-Yo’s, huge Rubix cubes, and even big old-school cell phones. It is a dose of nostalgia for guests over the age of 30.

However, there are many elements that younger guests will love. A huge foosball court sits in the 70’s section next to a large Mickey telephone. By the main pool, you can see Baloo and Mowgli from the Jungle Book, and Lady and the Tramp stand guard over a couple of the 50’s themed buildings. It is truly worth a walk around the resort to see all these fun elements of this decade's themed resort.

2. Newly Remodeled Rooms

The rooms at Pop Century Resort are newly remodeled. They feature a clean look with updated shower features and lots of storage. The double queen rooms will have one of the beds that function as a murphy bed where you can fold it up (very easily, I might add) to access a small table. There is artwork featuring Mickey Mouse and Friends that children will love.

The best part of the rooms though might have to be all the storage. There is a dresser, a coffee bar, and several shelves in the bathroom area. Additionally, there is ample room under the beds to store suitcases. The rooms also include a beverage fridge, coffee maker, hairdryer, and safe.
