    Stayed at Pop a week ago. Loved the reno, lots of space to put stuff (except the chairs), carpet removal gave it a nice, clean feel. Requested and got 60s, close to elevator, Hippy-Dippy pool, laundry, Petals pool bar, main building with food court (great desserts), and bus stop. Looked longingly at Skyliner over lake.

    Stayed in the 50s section. Loved it. Only problem was my wristband did not work properly and I kept getting locked out of our room and I had hard time getting access to park. Manager reset it couple times but still

    Pop Century has always been our go-to value resort!

    We love Pop Century. It is our resort of choice. We’ve stayed at All Star Music, Caribbean Beach, Art of Animation (regular rooms and suites), Coronado Springs, Port Orleans Riverside, and choose Pop Century every time now.

    The price, the amenities, the food court, the rooms, the transportation all work well to make the choice easy.

    We cut a stay at Port Orleans short once
    to move over to Pop Century because we are more comfortable there than we were at Port Orleans.

    We stayed in one of the newly redesigned rooms just days after it was finished. Love the changes. We tend to stay 10 days, so having a room that is more than just somewhere to sleep was a very welcome change.

    Once and never again. Thinnest walls of any hotel I’ve ever stayed at (including the All Stars). Neighbors in a normal speaking voice sounded like they were in my room.

    I have stayed at the Grand Floridian, Polynesian, Animal Kindom Lodge, Yacht Club, Port Orleans Royal Room, Caribbean Beach just to name a few. In April we stayed for our very first time at Pop Century and loved it! So much we went back again for our Fourth of July holiday. We got a preffered building, Hippy Dippy pool view, ground floor. The location was perfect! We loved everything about this resort. The Cast Members are amazing! The bus transportation is the very best in all of Disneyworld, the rooms are clean and beautiful, the pool and poolside activities are my 9 year old daughter’s favorite. She made slime 3 times, tye die shirt making, smores, movies under the stars, decorated our room window. We also watched all 3 parks fireworks from the resort. We love Pop Century and will definitely be going back!

    Pop century used to be our go to resort. However the new rooms are not wheelchair friendly, and they are cramped. They’re also very generic and don’t feel like Disney..
    the food court now lacks the diversity it used to have.
    the only good thing about pop is the staff. I love them all !

    * I know we could’ve gotten a wheelchair accessible room but they have only a shower, and for our special needs kids a bath tub is a must have!

    Stayed in the 60’s section in February for the first time and surprisingly loved it ! We usually stay moderate or deluxe and I actually loved the renovated rooms and Petals pool bar was fun in the evenings. My teenagers actually prefer it to deluxe ‍♀️. We will have a split stay with 3 nights at Pop on our next trip and can’t wait to try the Skyliner to the parks ! Highly recommend it.
