Shuttle Service at the Disney Pop Century Resort
Isn’t it a wonderful feeling to know that when you get onto the Disney Pop Century Resort property, your transportation to all of the Disney Theme Parks, Water Parks, and Disney Springs is all taken care of? Having a free Shuttle to take you to Epcot, the Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios is one of the main reasons guests stay at a Disney World owned property in the first place. Okay, there are a lot more reasons like the service you can only get from a Disney Resort and all of the wonderful Fun things to do at Pop Century like splash around in the three Resort Pools.
The Pop Century Resort is one of the Disney World Value Resorts and only offers Bus transportation for their guests. You can still ride the Monorail if you would like, all you have to do is hop on at the Magic Kingdom or Epcot, and you can take it back and forth to these two parks. The Monorail system also can take you to some of the Disney Resorts offering Monorail Transportation. This is a fun thing to do if you want something a little different.
