Photo Tour of a Not-Yet-Refurbed Room at Disney’s Pop Century Resort

By Dave Shute

For the first page of this review of Disney’s Pop Century Resort, click here.

Hey, Pop Century is going through a building by building room refurb. As of late 2017, four buildings–7, 8, 9 and 10–are done, and 6 is being worked on. The new rooms bring queen beds and coffeemakers–both firsts in value resort standard rooms! A full photo tour of one of these refurbed rooms starts here.

Below is a photo tour of an un-refurbed room.


Pop Century Floor Plan from yourfirstvisit.netStandard not-yet-refurbed 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.

On one side of the room you’ll find two full-sized beds.

These beds from the back of the room…

…and a closer view of one of them.

Between them is a small bedside table…

…with some storage space.

There’s some poppy art on the wall between the beds and the bath

On the other side of the room there’s a table and chairs, and a combined dresser/mini-fridge/TV.

The TV side from the back.

The table and chairs are fine for dining or playing games.

The combined dresser/mini-fridge/TV.  It has a couple of cubbies for storage…

…three smallish drawers…

…and a mini-fridge.

The TV is reasonably-sized, and note what’s playing on Channel 80.

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.

The sink area is small but nicely done.

The hair dryer.

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.

A closer view of the safe. To give you a sense of its size, the book is 9 inches tall by 6 inches wide.

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.

Refurbed rooms are better on almost every dimension.
