The Pop Century Resort is located by Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and the ESPN Wide World of Sports area.
The Pop Century is a value resort. It has 10 brightly colored 4 story buildings decorated with larger than life Pop Culture icons. There are different sections dedicated to certain eras in time, 1950′s, 60′s, 70′s, 80′s, and 90′s. The main lobby is in Classic Hall which also houses The Everything Pop and Shop food court and gift shop and The Fast Forward arcade. There are 3 pools, The Hippy Dippy Pool, The smaller bowling pin shaped Bowling Pool, and the monitor shaped Computer Pool. You can also choose to have a prefered room. A preferred room just means that you are closer to Classic Hall and you would also be closer to the bus transportation. Handicapped accessible rooms are available upon request. One more thing that may be important to you, especially if you have back problems, is they have Pillowtop mattresses.
The Pop Century is the best value resort in our opinion. It has a great theme, some of which will bring back memories I am sure. If you are looking for a great Disney room, but you are on a tight budget I would recommend The Pop Century. While you are there make sure to take a walk around the resort and bring your camera.
After you check in be sure to take a walk down by the back wall and you will see some of your favorite toys from when you were growing up.
Chip’s Tip: The Pop Century has 2 big selling points, one is the price and two is that they have a dedicated bus service. Meaning that you do not share a bus with any other resort, unlike the All Star Resorts which all share one bus.
Overall, we give Pop Century Resort an ” A-”.
