Super-sized and offering super value to families on a budget, Disney's Pop Century Resort
blends nostalgia for the year gone by with value prices of a bygone era. One of the largest hotels in the U.S., the 177-acre, 2,880-room Disney World Value category resort playfully presents a pictorial timeline of pop culture across the ages, with supersized icons and whimsical displays depicting favorite pasttimes, beloved toys and popular personalities throughout history.
As a cheaper Disney World hotel, The Pop lacks some of the frills you might find in a Moderate or Deluxe Disney resort -- like a marina, bike rentals and waterslides -- but it still packs plenty of family appeal, with larger-than-life Disney theming, a cool "Hippy Dippy" pool and dozens of fun photo ops that set the scene for a memorable vacation. Pop Century guests enjoy private (versus shared) motor coach transportation to Disney's theme parks, as well as enhanced dining options at Everything Pop food court, making it one of the most attractive cheap Disney World hotels for families.
While on the small side (260 square feet versus 314- to 340-square-foot rooms you'll find at Moderate Disney resorts), rooms at The Pop are thoughtfully designed, with bright furnishings and family-friendly touches like in-room refrigerators, privacy curtains and disposable plastic cups, rather than breakable glasses. Rooms sleep up to four. Connecting rooms are also available.
