Review: Disney’s Pop Century Resort, Continued

By Dave Shute

This is the second page of this review of Disney’s Pop Century ResortFor the first page, click here.


Pop Century Floor Plan from yourfirstvisit.netStandard rooms at Disney’s Pop Century Resort have the same amenities as other value resort standard rooms.

However, they share with standard Art of Animation rooms a slightly different lay-out than you’ll find in the rooms at the All-Stars.

Both the beds and the table and chairs at Pop Century are closer to the entry door than in the All-Star rooms. (See for example the All-Star Music floor plan on this page.)

The near bed in particular is so close to the door that it feels like the slightest trip would dump you into it. But once you are in the room, the slightly more spread-out furniture makes it feel more spacious than the rooms at the All-Stars.

Bed Side Disney's Pop Century Resort from
On one side of the room you’ll find two full-sized beds.

Bed Side from Bath Disney's Pop Century Resort from
There’s not much else here besides small table between the beds…

Wall Art Disney's Pop Century Resort from

…and some poppy art on the wall.

TV Side Disney's Pop Century Resort from
On the other side of the room there’s a table and chairs, and a combined dresser/mini-fridge/TV.

Table and Chairs Disney's Pop Century Resort from
The table and chairs are fine for dining or playing cards.

Dresser Disney's Pop Century Resort from
Here’s a close-up of the combined dresser/mini-fridge/TV.  It has a couple of cubbies for storage…

Dresser Storage Disney's Pop Century Resort from
…three smallish drawers…

Mini-fridge with Scaling Objects at Disney's Pop Century Resort…and a mini-fridge–since mid-2012 standard and included in the price.

Room Curtain Disney's Pop Century Resort from
Also on this side of the room will be the connecting door, if your room has one, and a coat rack. There’s also a curtain separating the bath and main space.

Beyond, you’ll find the divided bath, with a sink/dressing/closet area segregated from the main room by a cloth divider, and a separate room with the toilet and shower.

Sink Disney's Pop Century Resort from
The sink area is small but nicely done.

Clothes Hanging Area Disney's Pop Century Resort from
The closet/storage area includes 5 linear feet of clothes rod space, a luggage rack, an iron and ironing board, and a small wall safe.

Shower and Tub Disney's Pop Century Resort from
The toilet and tub area is behind a door next to the sink.

There’s nothing special about these rooms.  They are small; their decor is adequate but uninspired to the point of being dull, especially compared to the Little Mermaid rooms at Art of Animation.

Lake View Disney's Pop Century ResortRather, what’s great about Pop Century is the price, relative convenience, the fun treatment of the exteriors, and the lake view!
