    We've stayed in all of the "all star" resorts but pop century is by far our favorite! The food is good, gift shop has lots of stuff, buses are quick and pools are big, & the cast members are friendly.

    The food court was amazing! Get a lot of food for your money. The cast members were absolutely amazing, they made the vacation. Leave a tip for the maid, you might get a little something extra. :)

    I've stayed here twice and my last stay was with my boyfriend for almost two weeks . It's perfect . I highly recommend this specific resort because of the busses going directly where you want to go

    Please keep in mind this is a value RESORT. You aren't paying just for a room, you pay for resort amenities. Personally I love the free transportation, wonderful Cast Members and pools!

    If the food doesn't suit you take a walk across the bridge of hourglass lake, and check out the great food at the art of animation food court! Short walk, and much tastier options!

    Definitely a fun resort to stay in with its whimsical buildings and extraordinary facilities. Pools here are of various unique shapes: flower, bowling pin and computer monitor.

    Ask for a room closer to the main building and the best resort for less money also it's the only resort with its own bus to every single park so it helps with time. :)

    Ask for a preferred room. It will minimize your walk to the bus stop. It is a small add'l cost but you will thank me later for a shorter walk to you room at the end of an exhausting day in the parks.

    If you're going to the Beach Club or the Boardwalk for dinners or Jellyrolls, take the bus from Pop to Hollywood Studios and then take the boat to the Boardwalk! Soooo much faster than the buses!

    Great rooms and amenities for the price you pay. Remember it's a VALUE resort people, not a 5 star hotel. Be sure to walk over the bridge and check out the Art of Animation resort!

    Not sure why everyone is complaining about the WiFi. It works great! The key is to know there are two different networks to connect to: one for your rooms and one for the common areas.

    We return home to Disney 3-4 times a year. This is a value resort and is a great resort to save money, especially if you are going to be at the parks all day. A perfect place to put your head.

    Also ..make sure if you get the 60s and you want quiet , make sure you're facing the lake . Ours was and was so happy about it . Didn't hear any noise . The pools are open all night

    Make sure you check your magic bands for charging privileges BEFORE you head to the parks. Could save a lot of headache upon arrival to park! Also be sure to check everyone's bands on the door! :)

    Take the bridge and walk over to Disney's Art of Animation for a wider variety of food options at Landscape of Flavors food court. Try one of the create-your-own items.

    Perfect resort for college kids like myself - comfy beds for crashing at night, and buses to get you wherever you need to go! My favorite value resort.

    Wifi is now free! Also be sure to get to the buses before the park closes or else it might take you a good 4 buses to get back to the resort.

    Great value! Beds are super comfortable and the decor on the grounds is great. Giant everything!! Small rooms, but who cares, you're just sleeping here while not at the park.

    I like that all the resorts have free wifi now. Connection isn't always great, but its better than when you had to pay to use the Internet. Made it easy to check in to our flight home.

    Sneak a counter service meal over at Art of Animation! A very short walk from POP and their menu is superior to POP. Seems a bit less crowded also

    A short walk to the art of animation for your meals are totally worth it, its the same price.. and quality and selection is way better.

    Great resort for the price, and the food isn't bad for a value resort. Way better than the all star resorts, especially because there is only one bus stop compared to three.

    If u have a group of about 3 or more, order the large cheese pizza and split it between y'all. The pizza is $20 unless of course they've already changed the price.

    Value is right. We've paid way much more for Deluxe resorts and got so much less. Pop Century is an EXCELLENT value for your money.

    Request to stay in the 50s or 60s motels, shortest walk to Classic Hall and a great theme. Didn't like the 70s motel.

    this resort is perfect for a cheap trip especially if you're a college student. The rooms are small but perfect for two people. The food is also really good.

    The waste baskets have rolls of bags inside. Grab a bag or two for wet clothes when you go to the water parks.

    Best value resort. Do a week long stay at pop century instead of a 3 day holiday at the other resorts. That way you will have oodles of time for your holiday.

    If you request a king bed here be prepared to get an ADA room that has a bed just 6 inches off the ground and a roll in showers for wheelchairs.

    Ask for a room on a higher floor, close to shuttle stop, and not facing the pool (quieter). But don't sweat too much if you can't.

    Nice value resort and the refurbished rooms are very nice. The HD tv and new beds are great. This is our value resort of choice coming back in 4 weeks.

    It was ok. Pretty institutional. Think dormitory - walls are paper thin and it was essentially a place to park yourself when not enjoying the attractions. The food in the food court was good and fresh

    If you need an extra pillow or blanket, make sure you request it at least an hour before you plan to go to bed. It takes a VERY long time for them to bring one and no option to pick it up yourself!

    Yes this is a value resort and you hear it in the walls. It serves purpose as a place to sleep and shower, but sleeping in really isn't an option.

    Don't forget to check in inline before you arrive. You get to stand in a different faster line.

    Online check in typically has been a breeze, however with the testing of the new MagicBands system lines are pretty long.
