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.

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.
These beds from the back of the room…
…and a closer view of one of them.
Between them is a small bedside table…
There’s some poppy art on the wall between the beds and the bath
The table and chairs are fine for dining or playing games.
…and a mini-fridge.
The TV is reasonably-sized, and note what’s playing on Channel 80.
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 hair dryer.
A closer view of the safe. To give you a sense of its size, the book is 9 inches tall by 6 inches wide.
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.
