For our spring trip, we decided to stay at a Walt Disney World value resort. We chose Pop Century for its separation from the other value resorts while nearness to Art of Animation with their amazing food court. My husband and I had stayed at Pop several years ago so we already were familiar with the layout.
Pop has 1 main building that has the food court, gift shop, front desk services, main pool with bar and recreation games, and arcade. Outside of the main building is also where the bus stop is located for Disney Transportation.
The Pop rooms are spread out into buildings identified by decades from 50s to 90s. Each building’s façade is decorated with sayings and nostalgic items representing that decade. For example, the 50s have giant bowling pins while the 90s have a laptop. Part of the uniqueness of a value resort is the large oversized décor.
The room is laid out as a typical hotel room with 2 full size beds, table and chairs, vanity area, and bathroom. The room is able to sleep 4, although 3 adults is plenty in that sized room.
We only ate at the Pop food court for 1 breakfast, but be warned they don’t have Mickey waffles. They have waffles with the Pop logo on them instead. I did look at the dinner menu but did not see the items that were served in old fashioned TV trays. We never did make it to Art of Animation for a meal, but we did take their bus home from Downtown Disney and walked the bridge back to Pop.
