Disney's Pop Century Resort
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
This hotel is true to it's theme! There is a unique scent, style, and character for each building. I am so in love with the 70's bldg being a child of the 70's and 80's. There is something for everyone.
Let me preface this review with the fact that we had stayed at Animal Kingdom Lodge for the first 5 nights of our trip. We decided last minute to extend our trip by a day, so we made a room-only reservation at Pop Century for the 6th night to save a little bit of money.I would call this resort the Motel 6 of Disney. It was clean, but it was very minimal. Minimal toiletries. Minimally sized towels. Minimal decoration. The exterior areas were just okay. We still slept well, but we were sad to stay there after being at Animal Kingdom Lodge. It at least made it easier to get on the plane to go home.My only real complaint about Pop Century is that the room we had... the shower. The water pressure was great. It was clean. However... the handle would not stay in one spot. Meaning... you turn on the water to warm up for your shower. You get it where you like it. You get in the shower, and only a minute or two later, the water is scorching hot. So you turn the temperature way down. Only for a minute later to have the handle fall again and be scorching hot once again. And the pattern continues for your whole shower.BUT I can see the absolute advantages to staying here if you are trying to do a Disney trip on a tighter budget. Even the worst Disney resort is better than staying at a non-Disney property!
We enjoyed this resort. Yes it is a value resort at Disney. It is a not fancy but it still has the same magical touches that all of the resorts do. The rooms are the same size as a regular hotel room. However they are clean and the staff is super nice/helpful. As soon as we arrived there was a staff member there that helped us with our luggage and finding our room. We knew that we would be spending most of our time in the parks and so I did not want to spend too much money on the room. I can not say how nice it was to be able to park my car in the parking lot and not have worry about driving to any of the parks. Having access to the Disney transportation system was very nice. There was not a microwave in the room but that was ok, we didn't need it. It was a comfortable room at a very good price. We will be staying here again, the next time that we visit Disney World.
Check in was easy and staff was very friendly. I was in the 70's section, room showed a little wear and tear but was clean and comfortable. The bus service was excellent, most times we waited less then 10 minutes. Please check for bed bugs! We did not have any issues but encountered two other families that did, one family had two kids that had bites/welts all over their legs!
We had a wonderful getaway weekend with my husband and son. They had activities for the kids poolside and movie night was great. The food a bit pricey but that Disney for you. The rooms we had to full beds they are on small side and me being 7mths pregnant was a little uncomfortable. The arcade was good, until 2 of the games ate up the points and didn't work. The line in front desk was way too long to claim it. This place has beautiful decor from different eras 50,60,70,etc. It was great free parking and they actually don't put a hold on your card. Overall great experience would recommend plan to go back, that is after I give birth.
