Disney's Pop Century Resort
Disney's Pop Century Resort
Auld acquaintance shall be remembered at Pop Century, one of the Walt Disney World Resort’s value-priced resorts. At this innovative resort, you’ll find the last half of the 20th century immortalized for its contribution to popular culture—icons and references to the 1950s–1990s are everywhere. Pop Century Resort is located in the Epcot area on the northeast corner of Osceola Parkway and Victory Way.
AMBIENCE AT DISNEY'S POP CENTURY RESORT
Whether you’re 8 or 80, a blast from your past awaits at Pop Century. Pop Century sits beside a 33-acre lake with a scenic bridge that leads to Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, which opened in 2012. Go from the rockin’ days of sock hops “to infinity and beyond” in eye-popping style with a uniquely themed check-in lobby, food court/shop/lounge, and pool bar. Outside, giant cultural icons fill the senses, including a monumental Rubik’s Cube, a huge foosball field, and a billboard-sized laptop computer. The themes continue with three imaginative themed pools. Each guest lodge building is festooned with cultural icons and “groovy” catch phrases. This resort’s plans originally called for an expansion across the lake (representing the decades of the first half of the 20th century), but that fell by the wayside when the Art of Animation Resort was announced in its place.
RESORT LAYOUT AT DISNEY'S POP CENTURY RESORT
The 2,880 guest rooms in Pop Century are situated in five differently themed areas encompassing a total of 10 guest lodges. Pop Century celebrates the decades of the 1950s, ‘60s, ‘70s, ‘80s, and ‘90s. Themed courtyards are formed between two or more of the ten T-shaped guest lodges. Each decade’s theme is reflected in the guest room decor, but rich, wood-grain furniture adds elegance to the fun. Rooms have either two double beds or one king bed, a large TV with remote, a small table with two chairs, and a roomy chest of drawers. Rooms hold up to four guests plus one child under three in a crib (a folding crib is available on request). Rooms are small—about 260 sq. ft.—but as with the All-Star Resorts, furnishings allow adequate floor space. Rooms have no private balconies or patios, but each offers climate controls. Amenities include soap, housekeeping, large in-room safe, mini-refrigerator, free wireless Internet, table-side modem jack, iron and ironing board, and voice mail.
