Pop Century is a Disney World Value Resort located right next to the Art of Animation Resort. The resort themed after the fads from the 1950s through the 1990s. The buildings are separated by decades such as the 50s, 60,s 70s, 80s, and 90s buildings.
Walking into the Pop Century lobby was okay. It was definitely cool to see a few of the fads that happen during that decade, but it was kind of plain, the theming in it was nice just I feel like there could be more added to it. Leaving the lobby is when I started noticing the big decorations that were outside the Resort buildings such as the giant Mickey and flip phones. I was really impressed by it.
Our room was in the 70s building which was pretty close to the food court and the Disney Transportation buses. The walking wasn’t bad throughout the resort, it was a short walk when walking to Art of Animation all you had to do was cross the bridge.
Walking into the room, I noticed the beds, room, and sink area was a lot smaller, but I don’t know if it was just me but the actual toilet and shower area I felt was bigger than normal. The beds were okay for me but I like firmer beds but if you would ask my dad, who likes softer beds, did’t find them that comfortable but they were not miserable.
I did not eat at the food court, but I have heard that the food there is pretty good. The food court looked pretty big from when I walked through. It looked like they had 7 food stations.
One thing I would complain about this resort is the buses. It was maybe 9am and we had waited over 45 minutes for a Magic Kingdom bus, which after that we decided to go to Epcot because the bus just pulled up. Then the next day we had waited over 30 minutes for an Animal Kingdom bus. It seemed like every time we were going on a bus we had to wait 30-50 minutes for a bus to show up. It could of been really busy which is why the buses were taking longer than usual, after all the trip was in June.
Overall I would rate this resort a 4.5 out of 5 stars.
