Just West of Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you will find Disney’s Pop Century Resort. Built in 2003, this resort boasts three themed pools, complimentary transportation, and a giant yo-yo. The resort celebrates pop culture from the 50’s to the 1990’s. Guests are greeted with giant bowling pins, Rubik’s Cubes, and more iconic symbols of history. The 2880 room resort offers Queen and King sized beds in their newly renovated rooms. Remodeled only a couple of years ago, the rooms now have a modern feel. In order to give guests more space, many of the rooms include Murphy beds.
One of the value resort options on property, Walt Disney World’s Pop Century Resort offers guests a variety of activities. The Hippy Dippy pool, located in the 60’s section of the property, holds a staggering 235,613 gallons of water and is adorned with groovy flower shaped water jets. The resort also offers a 50’s themed bowling pin pool and a 90’s computer shaped pool, accented with a giant floppy disc and keypad. Besides pools, Pop Century offers an arcade, playground, and evening outdoor movies. Guests can also enjoy a jogging trail that winds through the resort with numerous pieces of trivia along the way.
Guests can also enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner at Everything Pop Shopping & Dining. The large quick service restaurant offers omelets and Mickey waffles for breakfast, as well as burgers and pizza for lunch or dinner. A pizza delivery service is also available for guests at the resort. If looking for an outdoor dining option, Petals Pool Bar offers a variety of drinks and snacks for children and adults alike. Iced tea, craft beer, and cocktails can be enjoyed by the Hippy Dippy pool.
As for transportation, guests can travel to parks via bus or the brand new Disney Skyliner service. Opened in 2019, the colorful gondola system takes guests to EPCOT and Hollywood Studios in minutes. Guests ride in the gondolas themed after various Disney and Marvel movies while flying over Disney’s Caribbean Beach, Riviera, and Art of Animation Resorts. The new system definitely makes for an exciting way to get around Walt Disney World.
Although the resort does not scream Disney, the larger than life accents and world renowned service, give Pop Century all of the Disney magic it needs and more. While Disney continues to move into the future, children 1 to 99 will enjoy the retro fun Pop Century has to offer.
