Looking to stay on the property with a budget in mind? Disney’s Pop Century Resort is one of the “value priced” resorts located in the heart of all the magic. Starting at $100 per night (prices change seasonally), these rooms afford all the comforts and the conveniences of staying on the property like the Disney Transportation, Magical Express and merchandise delivery to your room. This resort offers two types of rooms – either standard or preferred both with views of the pool or views of the hotel.
The theme of this resort is based around 20th century Pop culture and features 10 four-story, motel-style buildings decorated with larger than life icons that represent the decades of the past – the 50’s through 90’s.
In the 50’s area you will see an oversized jukebox, 45 rpm records, a transistor radio, giant bowling pin staircases and a 144,352 gallon pool also shaped like a bowling pin with Lady and the Tramp statues overseeing kids playing in the pool.
In the 60’s area you will enjoy giant hippie power flowers, a massive can of play-doh, staircases that are giant yo-yos, statutes of Baloo and Mowgli and peace symbols galore. Take a dip in the 1960’s Hippy Dippy Pool with it’s flower power water jets. Groovy baby!
Venture into the 70’s to climb the staircases made of 8-track cassette tapes, a giant foosball game with a Mickey phone in the center, and if you’re really feeling funky, feel free to do some disco dancing. Don’t miss the giant Big Wheel – how can you since it is 4 stories high!
When you are in the 80’s area, you will find a giant Rubik’s cube staircase, a giant walk-man and Michael Jackson – just a few of the iconic items from that decade. And don’t forget Pac-Man, everyone’s favorite dot-munching, ghost-running video game and Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head. There is even a Roger Rabbit statute.
The 90’s computer and digital age is depicted in it’s oversized cellphone staircases, a giant laptop, and oversized floppy disks and keyboards. How can one forget the rollerblade craze? Wonder what size those giant rollerblades really are? Do a little hip hop dance around the 1990’s style computer pool, the third pool at this resort.
With 2,880 rooms, the 3 large themed swimming pools and one central area, named “Classic Hall”, that houses the front desk, gift shop, arcade and the food court offering several options, there is always something to please everyone.
Tired of the crowds in the parks? Let the kids play at the 60’s based playground or see the stars under the stars – complimentary movies are shown poolside. Check with the front desk for viewing times.
Tip: This is the only place on the whole Disney Resort to get a piece of tie-dyed cheesecake…. it’s to dye for!
