Myself, my husband and our 9 year old stayed here for 8 nights in October 2016. This was our first trip to Disney. We were in the 70's building, which was a short walk from the food court, pool, and the bus stops. The main pool was a good size but we found it a little cold. The food court was lacking in variety of food and the food was not particularly tasty. It was also a little pricey. The rooms were clean but on the small side. The power point between the beds was extremely loose and we were wary using it. The beds were double beds and extremely uncomfortable, you could hear the springs every time you moved. We constantly heard loud noises, turns out it was the sound of the pipes due to the toilets being flushed. You could also hear the person next door when they were using the toilet!!!! In fairness, if you were looking to travel on a budget, this wouldn't be the worst option; naturally you get what you pay for. At the end of the day we didn't really spent much time at the resort, most of our time was spent at the parks.
I do not understand the whining and complaining here. Before staying here, I was really scared after reading some of these reviews. The travel planner and several friends had told me how great it was - and I just had to go with that and forge ahead. This trip was booked by my daughter as a birthday present. This was my first trip to Disney since the year after it opened, so basically I was a total newbie. We stayed from Oct 16-22. This property is all that and more. From the time I stepped into our room, I knew it was a winner. We had an awesome location in front of the bowling pool on the bottom floor. Yes the rooms are small, but if you are booking a POP room, you are only having 4 or less people in it, and it is perfectly fine considering most of your time is spent in the parks. Glorified motel? No way! The beds are very firm - and I suspect it is because they know something durable is necessary since many parents just let their kids run rampant and jump all over everything and abuse the furniture. I slept like a log every night. Pillows and bedding were all awesome. Everything was more than clean. Anything I asked for and needed was delivered to the room within 30 minutes. Mousekeeping was wonderful.More complaining about guest services? Not for us. They are great! Complaining about the food area? It is huge, it is user friendly, the ambience is great, there are multiple stations where you can get drinks and condiments, use a microwave and a toaster, and prepare your trays. The selections are more than ample - and the food portions are incredible. You will NOT go hungry eating at a Disney resort - ever. Someone mentioned to me that I should cross the bridge and check out AoA, so I did. Not impressed at all. The food menu is broader, but it is a darker, smaller eating area and it is extremely loud. I would never choose that resort over POP, especially considering the average night it costs two and a half times what POP costs. Even being right in front of the pool, and even though people constantly walked by and kids ran by, you never heard a peep when you were in your room. The only thing I heard was the person using the sink or shower in the room behind us (on the lake side).Every single person we had dealings with - in all areas of the resort - were polite, helpful and always smiling. The bus service is GREAT! People who whine about not being able to get a bus are not telling you the truth. Dedicated bus service, and never EVER had to wait more than 15 minutes or so to catch one. Yes they get crowded, but we never had trouble catching one. Why drive your vehicle when you can let Disney do it all?I can't wait until next year. We are already planning. And we WILL stay at Pop Century. They money you save, you can spend at the parks or use it for something else. The people who complain about POP and don't like it - I'm not sure what they are looking for....but if they can't find it at Pop Century, then they aren't looking very well.Job well done, POP!!!! Thanks for everything!!!
This is my 4th stay at the Pop Century since it's opening. We have stayed at a variety of Disney properties (all price levels)and this by far is the best choice among the value resorts. Decent food choices, designated bus service and clean rooms. We recently stayed at the All Stars in the last year as well, and it is looking really tired and in need of updating. If you have little ones, close proximity to the food court and Hippy Dippy pool is your best bet. The pool bar at the Pop is nice as well. If you have teens or doing an adult only trip, the 50's section is quiet and next to the Bowling pin pool, a much quieter pool.
I absolutely love this hotel. The grounds are very well kept and maintained. The rooms were extremely clean just a little on the small side but manageable. we paid extra for the preferred pool view room we had views of the hippy dippy pool and it was very close to the lobby and food court. The food at the food court was a little pricey I highly recommend getting the dining plan its worth it. The only downside to this hotel is the double bed we were expecting at least queen size beds but this hotel does not offer queen beds for some reason. I would definitely stay at this hotel again. If your looking for a five star resort this is not it keep in mind its a value resort and the price definitely reflects that.
Recently stayed at Pop Century for 3 nights. The room was small but clean. Didn't really spent much time at the resort, most of our time was spent at the parks. We were in the 70's building, a short walk from the food court, pool, and the bus stops and it was quiet. The food court was great to grab a quick breakfast on our way to the buses.
