Today, in a tweet that was provided by @WDWToday is seemingly getting buried by the news that a chunk of the monorail appears to have flown off and the monorail is being evacuated, we were able to see officially what the new redesign of the Pop Century rooms are looking like.

As you can see, the entirety of the room has been upgraded. While there are still two beds, one of the beds easily converts to a table, much like they do at Disney’s Art of Animation’s family suites. Also gone is the carpet, instead opting for what appears to be some sort of wood flooring.
The new rooms still include a refrigerator, but they also have a one cup coffee maker now! Also, there appears to be a lot of plugs and USB ports.
The color palette of the room is also a bit warmer. I particularly like the whites and reds. Oh and I love the Mickey Mouse artwork. And how cute is the artwork of Pluto sleeping in the fold down bed? Overall, the rooms have a very clean aesthetic.
The TV is now mounted on the wall and there appears to be a bit more storage, both in the bedroom, as well as the bathroom. Speaking of the bathroom, there is a newly updated and modern sink. They have also added a makeup mirror and I will certainly appreciate the brighter bathroom when I’m getting ready.
It also appears that the bathroom proper has been brightened up. The bathroom appears to have a tub with actual glass shower doors now.
I can’t wait to experience these new Disney’s Pop Century Resort rooms myself! While the work is currently being done at the resort, there’s no guarantee that you will end up with a newly remodeled room. If it’s important to you to have a newly refurbished room, my suggestion would be to ask at check-in. Again, it won’t be guaranteed, but you might be able to experience one of these new rooms!
