Pop Century ResortAs anyone, we have our favorite resort to stay in while at Walt Disney World and that resort is
Disney’s Pop Century Resort!

This resort is ideal for the family on a budget or the couple who
doesn’t spend much time in their room and does not need to be pampered.

Disney’s Pop Century Resort is a Disney Value Resort hotel featuring giant icons from many of
the 20th-century popular culture crazes.

Rooms are located in 10 brightly colored and decorated 4-story buildings. Each building is trimmed with huge letters representing iconic sayings from the decade they represent starting with the 1950’s through the 1990’s.

You can enjoy any of the 3 swimming pools—the main flower-shaped Hippy Dippy Pool, the smaller bowling pin-shaped Bowling Pool and the monitor-shaped Computer Pool. The kids can cool off at the Goofy Kiddie Spray Area, an interactive play fountain located between the ’60s and ’70s section.

The rooms will accommodate up to 4 people plus one child under the age of 3 in a Pack ‘n Play. These rooms have either 2 double beds or 1 king bed. Room amenities include: an alarm clock, in room wall safe, iron and iron board, table and chairs, telephone, television, voice mail, vanity area with sink, hairdryer and high-speed internet access (for an additional fee). Mini refrigerators are also available for a fee. All rooms are non-smoking. Wheelchair accessible rooms are available upon request and rooms designed for the hearing impaired. Coin-operated self-service laundry facilities are located at Disney’s Pop Century Resort. Also, you can get valet dry cleaning and laundry service which is available for pickup from your room.

Disney’s Pop Century Resort also offer several childcare services to keep your children having fun—even when you can’t be there.

When choosing a themed room, you have a choice or either a standard room or a preferred room. The preferred roomsPop Century Resort cost $15 more per day (subject to change) and the only difference between them is that a preferred room is closer to the food court and the pool. Disney’s Pop Century Resort has a souvenir shop, game room, and a food court.

The food court offers breakfast, lunch, dinner and an ice cream shop. Refillable mugs can be purchased for unlimited hot and cold beverages during your stay. These mugs can only be refilled in the food court of your resort and not in the parks. Disney’s Pop Century Resort has the largest food court of all the Value Resorts. Free bus transportation is available to and from all the parks and Downtown Disney from this resort.


  1. Thanks for highlighting this property for value minded folks! Sounds like a great option!

  2. This resort sounds so much fun and an ideal place to have some time away from the hustle and bustle of the parks.

  3. Bruce, what a great article! You really made me feel like I was there!

  4. Bruce, Pop Century is my favorite of the value resorts too and the resort I stay at most of the time when I am at Walt Disney World. I loved your article and can’t wait to get back to Walt Disney World and Pop Century.

  5. We are planning a budget conscious trip to WDW for a family of two adults and two ‘tweeners’. Have been ‘eyeing’ Pop Century so appreciate the info, – never having seen this hotel. Would you say that the Hippy Dippy pool is the best for Pop Century? And if so, which building should we request to have easy access to it.
    We also were hoping to take advantage of the ‘free’ dining plan that Disney sometimes offers during off season. Can we book a room now (soon), and add the free dining later, if it is offered again this fall?
    Thank YOu!

      Hi Randy,
      Thank you for visiting my website! Pop Century is my favorite value resort. To be close to the Hippy Dippy pool I would suggest a preferred room with puts you close to the pool and the food court. You can add the free dining later if it is offered at the time of your travel. I would love to discuss this further with you and have the opportunity to book this for your family. Go to the contact area of my website or you can email me at or call me. My services would include booking your trip, watching for any discounts, plan and make you dining reservations, give you advice on how to make the best of trip, and give you a Free PassPorters WDW Guide.
