Disney’s Pop Century Resort is a celebration of all the fads of the 1950s-1990s. Over the top sized iconic toys and memorabilia designates each decade’s building. You’ll find larger than life bowling pins, yoyos, playdoh, big wheels, and more decorating the property and designating each area by decade. These iconic and fun themes make this resort perfect for families.
The resort has 3 swimming pools including the Hippy Dippy main pool in the 1960s area located behind Classic Hall, a bowling pin-shaped pool in the 1950s, and a computer pool in the 1990s. In addition to the pools, there is also a playground in the 1970s area. Inside Classic Hall you will find shopping, an arcade, and a quick-service dining location. Enjoy Mickey waffles and omelets during breakfast and choices including pot roast, pasta, and pizza at lunch and dinner. Pizza delivery to your room is available as well.
Rooms at this resort have been recently refurbished and sleep up to 4 people. Most rooms include 1 queen-size bed and 1 queen-sized wall pull-down bed which allows for more space to move around when you aren’t sleeping. The split bathroom is convenient for families to all get ready at the same time. Behind the door, you’ll find the tub/shower and toilet while the double sinks and mirrors are on the other side.
This resort is just a short walk across a bridge from Art of Animation resort which in addition to another dining option also allows for access to Disney’s Skyliner system. A short gondola ride through the air can take you to Hollywood Studios, Epcot, and other resort hotels. This resort also offers bus transportation and does not share its busses with other resorts.
The fun memories and affordability help to make Pop Century a favorite resort of many Disney World guests. My personal favorite decade to stay in is the 1950s. I love the bowling pin pool, jukeboxes, and you might even see a larger than life familiar Disney face or two.
