    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. :)

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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. :)

    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 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.

    Before we became dvc we stayed twice, I loved the theme, we loved how the buses were, food court was good, pools were great! I also loved the centralized location it had to the parks!

    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.

    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!

    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! :)

    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!
