My first post back in 5 months and of course it’s Disney themed! This month is going to be so exciting because not only am I heading to Disney World later this month, but I’m also going on a Disney Cruise! This will be my fifth cruise and my fourth Disney Cruise. As some of you might remember I was supposed to go on my fourth Disney Cruise back in the summer of 2020. Well…we all know how 2020 went.
Three years later and I’m finally getting to go back on the Disney Cruise Line. My first three Disney Cruises were all abroad the Dream. But I’m super excited because this cruise will be on the Fantasy. After my cruise I’ll also be spending a few days at Disney World and I’m going to be staying at a new Disney Resort (new for me at least). So what perfect timing to share a post from the last Disney Resort I stayed at: Disney’s Pop Century!
Here’s a break down of Disney’s Pop Century Resort:
Just like with my All-Star Movies Resort post: Spoiler Warning! This is going to be a long, photo heavy post. I’m going to be breaking down and showing you the entire resort including the themed areas were guests stay, the lobby, the entrance, the pools, the dinning area, and everything in between.
Let’s start with the rooms. Disney’s Pop Century Resort is broken up into five themed sections: The 1950s, the 60s, 70s, 80s and the 90s.
The 50s area of the resort is decked out with statues of Lady and the Tramp (and a giant-sized table-top juke box that I forgot to take a photo of). This section of the resort is also home to one of the resorts three pools (again, I forgot to take a photo).
The 60s section is decorated with some play-doh creations and Baloo and Mowgli from The Jungle Book.
The 60s area is also home to one of the resorts three pools: the Hippie Dippy Pool.
The 70s area might be my favorite because of the Mickey phone and foosball. Although I can’t lie, at night the little foosball men do look a little creepy.
The 80s area will always have a special place in my heart because that’s where my room was located!
The room is partially identical to All Star Movies (their remodel was based off Pop Century’s rooms). The main difference is the Mickeys above the bed.
The third and final pool is also located within the 80s area. Shoutout to the people who remember floppy disks!
Without a doubt the 90s section is the most bland. There’s not even an iconic Disney character in this area. Which is crazy since the 90s were the Disney renaissance and has some of the best, if not the best, films. The “icon” in this area is literally a cellphone. BORING.
At Pop Century the main check in/guest service building is called Classic Hall. The outside of the building is decorated with icons of the different decades.
Located in Classic Hall is the check in, an arcade and a shop where you can get resort exclusive items (as well as other things).
And of course there’s a food court! Personally, I prefer to grab food and then walk back to my room to eat. But sometimes its nice to eat in the food court and watch the different Disney movies playing.
There are two main types of transposition available at Pop Century. There’s the buses that take you straight to the parks. And there’s my personal favorite: the Skyliner!
The Skyliner takes you to Hollywood Studios and Epcot (as well as a few other Disney Resorts). I absolutely love the connivence of the Skyliner. And it may or may not have swayed me to stay at the Disney Resort I’ll be staying at later this month (there’s a little hint for you, wink wink!).
While I really enjoyed All-Star Movies, I definitely prefer Pop Century! Being one of the resorts to have a Skyliner stop really adds to the overall appeal. I highly recommend Pop Century for anyone wanting to stay at a Disney Resort without having to take out a second mortgage on your house.
I can’t wait to visit Disney World later this month! And hopefully the new resort I’m staying at will impress me as much as Pop Century did.
