The Busy Giffs: Walt Disney World's Pop Century Resort

Walt Disney World's Pop Century Resort

It's been a hot minute since we went to Disney in August, but I realized I never shared our thoughts on Disney's Pop Century Resort.

I will admit, I was a bit nervous. Last time we visited Disney, we stayed at a moderate level resort and Pop Century is considered a Value level resort. I know it's Disney, but still... I was nervous, afraid of a subpar hotel and oh my gosh, I was so wrong.

We loved the Pop Century Resort!


The entire resort is covered in Icon characters and theming...

Goofy, yo yo, travel

giant fooseball, travel

Jungle book, baloo, mowgli, travel

Even the check in area was lined with vintage and retro memorabilia that made me say oooh a few times!

 At first, we were a little sad that we did not get put into the newly refurbished rooms (construction is currently underway) but since we were right in the main pool area, and we only spent like 7 hours total sleeping in the room each night, we got over it pretty quick.

The room was the perfect size for the 4 of us: 2 beds, a large closet area and a bathroom door that shut and left the vanity area accessible was perfect in the morning. The beds were comfy and there was even enough room to park the double stroller!





The best part of our room was where it was. Our room was extremely close to the main lobby, which meant we were very close to the game room, the dining hall, and Everything Pop Shop - which was perfect when we wanted a quick snack and when David needed cough drops!



However, the best part for me, was being literal steps from the pool.  Our ground floor room door literally opened right to the pools. 10 steps and we were at the gate for the kiddie pool/splash area, which was empty more often than not! This was perfect for our kids who can't quite swim yet but still wanted to splash and have fun!


 We did take advantage of the big flower shaped pool and the pool bar as well!



The resort also had laundry facilities and a walkway to the Art of Animation (which we explored!). Honestly, if I didn't know it was a Value resort at booking, I would not have known! We loved how comfortable it was and how close everything was to our room! We'll absolutely be staying again when we visit Disney World next time!
