POP CENTURY AND THE VALUE RESORTS AT WALT DISNEY WORLD
- Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort, opened in April 1994
- Disney’s All-Star Music Resort, opened in November 1994
- Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort, opened in January 1999
- Disney’s Pop Century Resort, opened in December 2003
- Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, opened in May 2012
Each of these five has four-person standard rooms, and for standard rooms, for most families Art of Animation is the best choice, followed by Pop Century.
Two value resorts also have six-person family suites–
–and for family suites, too, for most families, Art of Animation is the best choice.
Disney’s Pop Century Resort officially salutes “many of the 20th-century popular culture crazes—including toys, gadgets, music, movies, fads and catch phrases.”
It includes an arrival building called Classic Hall.
Just outside Classic Hall you’ll find the main pool.
Pop has 2880 rooms in ten identical four-story buildings, all with elevators.
These buildings are nominally divided into five areas–1950s, ’60s, ’70s, ’80s and ’90s–representing the icons and memories of each decade.
In fact it’s really four areas:
- The three ’50s buildings, grouped around the bowling pin pool
- The two ’60s buildings, grouped around the main Hippy Dippy Pool
- The two ’70s buildings, the only ones without a pool in their center–making them quieter–and
- The two ’80s and one ’90s buildings grouped around the computer pool
