Disney groups hotel properties into three categories: value, moderate and deluxe. Pop Century is a value resort, great for families on a budget. Themed around trends spanning the 1950s through to the 1990s, the exterior makes guests feel like they've entered a time-warp filled with popular fads, toys and catchphrases from decades past. Dive under the water jets at the Hippy Dippy Pool before watching complimentary evening screenings of classic Disney movies under Orlando's night sky. Meals are taken care of at the Everything Pop Shopping & Dining are - fill up on pizza, pasta, flatbreads and waffles, or order a drink at the Petals Pool Bar.

Neighborhood
Disney Pop Century sits minutes away from Epcot and Hollywood Studios, and is set back from the busy roads of Orlando, minimizing traffic noise. Complimentary shuttles run to various entertainment and shopping venues, while the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex just down the road is a technology-loaded place to watch an event, be it football, baseball, basketball, soccer, or any other athletic spectacle.
Hints and tips
Unlike many other hotels in Orlando, Pop Century has its own bus that shuttles guests to and from all Disney parks and Downtown Disney.

For the best access to the main pool area and food hall, request a room in either of the 4,000 or 5,000 blocks.

7yr Old Magical Holiday

The hotel is wonderful for children. Fun activites all day long the kids don't mind leaving the parks for a few hours to chill. The rooms could be a bit bigger or a terrace would be nice. A sit down restaurant would also be nice. All in all this is a good choice if you are in Disney for the parks & fun.

Great for young kids and a budget

We have stayed at this hotel 6 times in the last 2 years and will keep coming back. For our young kids, under 6 yrs old, the theming and the pools are perfect. They love it, and the afternoon games played at the pool each day are awesome. And you can't beat the buses to Disney theme parks -- 20 mins or less to Magic Kingdom. We did have some maintenance issues in our room this trip -- a noisy AC unit, and problems with lock on door, but both were fixed quickly by friendly folks. I especially like to get a room with a water view, which is so peaceful, and I like to walk over to the Art of Animation food court for a meal too. Overall, the rooms are very basic, nothing fancy, but they are also all you really need if you will be spending most of your time in the amusement parks.

Walk the bridge across the lake to the food court at Art of Animation which has make-your-own pasta dishes and some Indian food offerings, yum!

Pop Pop Pop!

Pop Century is definitely my favorite of the Disney value class hotels, and it even holds its own against the two moderate class hotels I've stayed at. The theming is great and the rooms and public areas are always very clean. The rooms can seem a little small, especially if you have 4 people in one, but you're probably not there to hang out at the hotel anyway! Staff is friendly and helpful. The Disney bus transportation is quite nice, most of the time. (Pop does tend to be the furthest bus stop away at the theme parks, which can be kind of discouraging at the end of a long day of walking.) The food court has a nice variety of items, as does the gift shop. The one thing I don't like is that I can't guarantee reserving a room with a king-sized bed-- you can REQUEST it, and the room assigners will do what they can, but you can't be absolutely sure until you get there. Overall Pop Century is a great value for your Disney vacation.

Value Disney Resort

All the benefits of staying at a Disney Resort (airport transfer, free shuttle buses to all Disney parks) at a relatively low price. Only complaint was we waited in queue a really long time to check in. Staff were just slow and did not seem too bothered there was a long queue developing. Not a good first impression.

Always enjoy POP Century visit

Have stayed about several times and it just keeps getting better. It is one of the on property Disney hotels where the fun keeps on going. To save money and still be close to everything, request a standard room in buildings 4 or 5 (the 60s). Not only are you closer to everything, you get the benefit of a quite location as well.

usual Disney excellence and overall great deal!

This hotel met all of my expectations and more! I only stayed at Disney once before, and it was a luxury resort , so I was not sure what to expect from the value- type one. But the hotel was awesome!!! Rooms were clean and spacious, had all the usual features Disney offers, and the staff was great!! Big food court, 3 pools, right by the lake. Definitely recommend to everyone.

Great stay at Disney

The Disney value resorts are always a great bargain for Disney travelers. Pop Century is close to the parks, with its own bus, which is different from the All-Star resorts. The convenience is worth the few extra bucks that you're not paying. Disney keeps everything really clean, the staff are friendly and the amenities are great. The rooms could be a little more comfortable (better mattresses, thicker towels), but for the money, it's wonderful value. It's not a deluxe resort hotel, but if you're going to Disney to spend most of your time in the parks and/or out and about, then it won't matter to you that your room is a little less fancy. And again, GREAT value for the money!

Perfect Place

What more can one ask for when everything is available to you with ease. Love our stay with Pop Century and our visit to Epcot. The hotel is great and welcoming where everyone is there to make your visit enjoyable. Our room was always clean and fresh. We made up our minds that if we are here for Mickey, this is the place to be for accessibility, ambiance, ease of use and affordability. Not surprised with the high review ratings. As they say, you get what you pay for. Highly recommended for people with realistic expectations.

Always a pleasure!

It is always fun to stay at Pop Century! The theming of the hotel is great. All of the rooms are clean, the staff is friendly and helpful, and we never have any complaints. We have stayed at hotels off of the Disney property as well, and would recommend the few extra dollars to stay at Pop Century for sure!

If you would like to see the new Art of Animation resort as well, just take the short walk over from Pop Century! Totally worth it to see the Cars section!
