Great stay - ask for refurbished room

Had a great 5 night stay at pop century. We did online checkin and requested a room in the 90s or 80s (which have been redone) and at checkin desk also made this request. They were able to accomodate this request which was great. The new room had a Murphy bed which we did not use, a regular queen bed, bar fridge massive tv, 10 USB charging ports, iron, hair dryer and plenty or towels and pillows. The new flooring is laminate so sometimes you could hear people above thumping about above you. Upon checkin we were offered to opt out of daily housekeeping and receive a Disney gift card. There was a number to call for additional towels or cleaning request. They did say service would come after so many days but can't remember what it was. This suited us really well as we don't like having house keeping daily anyway. If this sounds good to you, then ask at checkin if they don't offer it to you. The resort can be noisy as targeted at families. Bus transportation to and from parks was really good. Even after park closing they were sending many buses so didn't have to wait long to get back to resort.

It’s a massive motel

Not sure I’d call it a “resort”. We stayed 2 nights for a lacrosse tournament at ESPN wwos and it was super convenient. There is basically no food on site. Yes, they have a food court but it is lame by shopping mall standards and way more expensive ($10 for a slice of frozen pizza). Room mostly clean (shower tile grout is moldy) and has nothing but a tiny fridge and TV. We were in 50’s area and from my bed I can lock the door... so not a huge space. It was cheap and worked fine for our purposes.

Pathetic!!!!!

I am a very young 62 year old diabetic grandparent accompanying my family on a trip to Disney World. Too make a long story short, my first two days in Disney were very tiring and I did not feel well. On the second day (throughout the day) I felt I was going to collapse and chalked it up to being out of shape. That evening I couldn;'t move and felt like it was dying. Luckily, my son's sister in law was also on this trip ,(,who is a doctor specializing in diabetes) advised me my blood sugar was way too high ( 25) and that I was also suffering from dehydration. My blood sugar continued to soar as high as 29 but with her advice we managed it as best as we could with the insulin I had on hand. Needless to say, I was immobile and unable to go to the parks . About three days later I wanted to get out of the hotel room so I called the front desk and asked if they could offer me assistance to get from my room to the bus pick up area so I could go shopping for an hour or so. I did explain my situation to her and that if I walked from my room to the bus area I would not have enough energy to go to the shopping mall. It is important to note our hotel was about 1/4 a mile to the buses. The receptionist told me they didn't offer such services and I said why not as about 1/3 of the people staying on the resort were over 60 . She said there were 3000 people on the resort and if they spent their time helping people getting from place to place there would be no one to look after other services. Now here is the point to my story ....this is what she then said to me " Mam, this is not a luxury hotel". to which I responded.....do you think it's a luxury to be pushed in a wheelchair or have to get assistance ...do you...? I told her if they could not offer me some assistance I was going to put this story on trip advisor and she said thank you mam so here it is on trip advisor. So if you are any way challenged or in poor health don't go to this hotel , they are rude and ignorant and offer no help if you need it although they claim on their brochure they are there to help you. Not impressed! Don't go there......

Great value for staying on Disney property

Pro tip: request staying in one of the newly remodeled rooms!The hotel set-up is nice. There’s an on-site food court, and bus transportation to Disney resorts. We stayed here for the Wine and Dine 5k weekend. Would stay here again.

Economy Rooms at Midrange Prices

I love Disney but haven't been too happy with the value of the resorts. We just stayed at the Pop Century Resort yesterday. The concept is nice and it is geared toward families. There are limited activities including a pool and game room. The prices are reasonable for a Disney resort property and this is an ideal place if you plan to spend your time elsewhere. Expect limited amenities that you would expect at other national chain economy hotels - no coffee or coffee pot, no microwave, and sandpaper towels. The positives include clean rooms, a mini refrigerator, plenty of TV channels, and nice complimentary toiletries. Beds are clean and comfortable. Staff is friendly and helpful but did not arrive until very late to clean the room. One day the disturbed us while napping even though we had a "do not disturb" sign on the door.I recommend going somewhere else for food. Room service pizza was undercooked, overpriced, and had minimal ingredients on top. A breakfast sandwich and coffee will run you over $10 but fast food chain breakfasts taste better at half the price.I was a bit disappointed with the maintenance of the facility. The ice machine on our floor was broken and looked like it was that way for a while. The drain stopper to our bathtub was broken as was the dresser drawers. The pool, game room, and gardens were all very well kept, though.Overall, this is an average facility and you would expect a bit more for the price. But convenient transportation to the parks and extra park hours may make the stay a good value for you.
