What Readers Are Saying About Disney's Pop Century Resort

Very impressed with Pop Century. I did not have high expectations, but I loved Petels Poor Bar (amazing drinks) and our room was well-thought out, comfy, and modern. The rainfall showerhead was a pleasant surprise!

The Skyliner was very efficient and I'd pick Pop based upon this feature.

We loved the Skyliners at Pop Century. They were so convenient! Also, the bus transportation was always there, the longest we had to wait for a bus was maybe 5 minutes at the most!

We stayed at Pop Century, which was an excellent value. We've stayed at Port Orleans Riverside a few times before this, and although we like the rooms and the tranquil atmosphere there, we found Pop Century to be even more enjoyable.

The new rooms are very nice, my room was quiet, and the bed was heaven.

Rooms

These 260-square foot rooms are refurbished and improved. A modern hardwood-floor look replaces carpty. IKEA-style storage nooks and space-saving touches are everywhere. One feature we love is that the second bed is a fold-down option. When the bed isn't in use, it disappears into the wall, freeing floor space (and turning into a desk).

  • Room with Queen Bed(s) and en-suite bathroom
  • Queen-Size Table Bed (table with 4 chairs that converts to a queen-size bed)
  • Open clothes hanger bar
  • Dresser with drawers
  • Full-length mirror
  • Wireless Internet (Wi-Fi)
  • Flat-panel TV
  • Microwave oven
  • Coffee maker and starter supply of coffee pods
  • Ironing board and iron
  • Hair dryer
  • Digital thermostat
  • In-room safe
  • Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and bar soap

A door separates the main sleeping area from sink/bathroom area, and another door separates the toilet and shower from these. This allows up to three groups to get ready at the same time.

Dining

Pop's one food court is fine for breakfast or easy dinner. We wouldn't want to eat here every night, though, so a car or ride-share will help you find more options.

Everything POP Shopping and Dining Everything POP is probably the most "out there" of the value food courts. With "tie dye" cheesecake, you'll find items here you won't at other food courts. Everything POP is reliably good if you don't order something that sounds like it should come with a cardiologist on the side.

Petals Pool Bar As with all of the Value category resorts, the only bar at Pop Century Resort is its pool bar, Petals. The bar is pleasant and it sits so that you have a view of the Hippy Dippy pool and the large buildings behind the pool that house hotel rooms. There are also quite a few palm trees scattered around the pool area that add to the tropical feel usually apparent from the intense humidity of central Florida. The menu is mostly selections from the standard Disney bar menu, but there are actually two special drinks found at Petals. The Lava Lamp is made with lemon rum, blue Curacao, sweet and sour, and Sprite with grenadine drizzled in to replicate that groovy lava lamp look. The Hula Hoop is a mixture of coconut rum, melon liqueur, banana liqueur, grenadine, and pineapple juice.

Pop Century In Room Delivery

Refillable Mugs Allows guest self-service soft drink refills from quick-service locations in hotels (NOT in theme parks) for $21.99 for the length of stay.
