Disney’s Pop Century Resort Photo Review

Disney’s Pop Century Resort

Are you ready to step back into some of the favorite decades of the 20th Century? Disney’s Pop Century Resort will take you back through the decades and fun fads of the 1950s through the 1990s.  This is a fun, popular Disney Value Resort.

Disney’s Pop Century Classic Hall

Walking through the lobby, which is known as Classic Hall, is like a walk down pop culture memory lane.  There are so many shadow boxes on the walls with all kinds of toys and different items through the decades.  It’s always fun to look around and find a favorite childhood toy or things you remember from grandma’s house.

Shadow Box.  I remember my grandma used to have the mushroom kitchen set. 

As you walk through Classic Hall, you will also see the big Everything Pop store.  This is a large gift shop and the food court dining area for the resort.  The food court has a lot to chose from…everything from burgers, sandwiches, salads, pasta, pizza and breakfast.  With the My Disney Experience app, you can also use Mobile Order at the food court!  I love Mobile Order…it is so easy and less standing in line!

Other fun things to check out while you are in the lobby area are the Fast Forward Arcade and Caricature Stand.

Disney’s Pop Century Guest Room

The guest rooms at Disney’s Pop Century Resort have went through major renovations over the last few years and the renovations were completed in 2018.  With the renovations, the guest rooms now feature 2 Queen-size beds, instead of 2 Double beds. One bed is a regular Queen-size bed and the other is a Queen-size Murphy pull-down bed. With the second bed being a Murphy bed, this will allow for more room during the day when the bed is not needed.  It simply goes back up and becomes a dining table.

I love the changes they have made to the guest rooms. They feel brighter and more open.  The art backdrops behind the beds are fun and adorable.  I love that the one bed can be put away to make more room when it is not needed.  The bed is really comfortable too!  The beds sit higher off the floor to give guests under bed storage for luggage.

Pools

Pop Century has 3 resort pools.  The main resort pool is the Hippy Dippy Pool. It is located in the middle of the resort by the Classic Hall. Pop Century has two smaller quiet pools as well.  The Bowling Pin pool is located closer in the 1950s area of the resort.  The Computer Pool is by the 1980s and 1990s area of the resort.

As you walk around the different sections of Pop Century, you will see giant reminders of these decades.  In the 1950s section, there are giant bowling pins and a giant Lady and the Tramp.

Unfortunately, I do not have any photos of my own of the 1980s or 1990s area of the resort.  There are giant Rubix Cubes, cell phones and computers to depict those decades. 

Transportation

Pop Century is located near Hollywood Studios and Epcot with easy access to both of these parks on the Disney Skyliner.  The Disney Skyliner station is located at the Generation Gap Bridge over Hourglass Lake between Pop Century and Disney’s Art of Animation Resort.  There are also resort buses available to take guests to all four Disney theme parks, the two Disney water parks and Disney Springs.
