Take the family back in time to enjoy the fun of many different centuries at the Pop Century Resort Disney location at Disney World in Orlando Florida. As the name implies, each section of this property is broken up into 10 year spans showcasing iconic items as well as phrases used and color schemes that would have been seen during each era. It is really a neat concept that you won’t find anywhere else. Since it is a true Disney resort, stay on the lookout for the famous hidden Mickey’s displayed around the grounds as well as the larger than life Disney Characters shown the way they would have looked during each time period. The history of Disney has never been so much fun.
Staying at Disney on a Budget
Most people are having to watch what they spend and when you decide you are going to stay at Disney, it is important to know where you can save some of that money from time to time. The many Value Disney Properties allow you to keep some of that hard earned cash in your pocket but still enjoy all that they have to offer any of their guests. The Resort at Disney Pop Century is no exception to this. As you walk around the property, you quickly see that Disney is attentive to everything you are viewing. Each of the different sections are special and display items from the century that they were either used or created. There are a total of 4 main sections covering a span for 5 Centuries, or 50 years. You will want to venture off and visit each one of these locations on the grounds while you are there just to see all of the massive items that have been created for each one. More than likely, this is going to be a nostalgic walk through the ages that the adults remember the most but think about all of the stories you will be able to tell as you walk through these different themed areas with your kids.
Rooms and Suites
Be sure that you understand when staying at the Pop Century resort, there are not any family suites at this property. All of the rooms are pretty much the same style, occupying about 260 square feet each. The rooms are configured very similar to a standard hotel or motel room with a couple of double beds and a singe bathroom. Also, the accommodations hold up to 4 people in each room. If you are looking for a little more space to spread out or you just have a larger family you might want to look at the Suite alternatives at the Value resorts that offer them. If a suite is what you need, take a look at either the Art of Animation Resort Disney or the All Star Music Resort Disney.
Why Stay at a Disney Property?
No matter what Disney property you decide to stay at, they all provide similar benefits. You would think that some of these would be cut out for the Value Resorts but Disney treats all of their guest the same no matter what price point they stay at. The biggest benefit is having full access to the World renowned transportation system that is in place to take you from Resort to Park or any of the Disney locations available. Another advantage of staying at the Pop Century is the fact that all of the staff is trained well and is on hand to meet the needs that you might have and do it with a smile on their face. Parking is another helpful aspect. If you decide that you would like to take your own vehicle to the park one day, the parking is already included. I don’t think I would recommend driving around Orlando unless you really feel that you have to. The provided transportation is amazing and worry free. Just sit back and relax while someone else makes sure that they get you where you need to go.
After you arrive at the property and finish the check-in process, the whole family will have a difficult time containing their enthusiasm as you enter the first courtyard. It is impossible to miss the large Disney Characters and themed locations as you walk through. Even the rooms are styled to match the theme of each section. Find out all there is to know about the different styles and accommodations at Pop Century Resort Rooms.
Enjoy any of the 3 large swimming pools spread out on all sides of the property. Know going in that there are not any Water Slides or Lazy Rivers at any of the Disney Value Resorts. Since you will be spending most of your time at the parks during your stay, this is probably not a big deal but it is nice to know this going in so that you don’t have anyone let down when you get there. The largest swimming pool is located right behind the main building and is situated between the rooms in the 1960’s theme. The other 2 pools are located to the left and right sections of the resort and are smaller in size but also will give you a quieter setting to enjoy a relaxing day if you would like. Take a look at all of the information available and also look at the images of the pools Pop Century Pool.

As you start to take your stride around the property, it doesn’t take long for you to see just how large this resort is. Think about what it actually takes to manage a massive 2,880 rooms with the total potential capacity of 11,520 guests. That is almost mind boggling when you think about it. There are many towns in the world that do not even have a population this large. If you are looking for the closest rooms to the main building, Classic Hall, you will probably want to book one of the preferred rooms. They cost a little more but it will place you in a room closest to the building where you will be dining and catching the transportation to the parks. If you are looking for one of the more quiet areas then you will want to look at staying in the 1980’s or 1990’s buildings. These accommodations are the furthest away from the front and it even has its own computer pool which is also quieter than the main one in the 1960’s.
All rooms are non-smoking.
Both wheelchair and hearing impaired accessible room are available
TTY equipment can be requested
