Disney’s Pop Century resort features buildings and furnishings inspired by different decades. Guests at this value 2,880-room resort have the opportunity to live and play inside these unique time capsules and experience the popular culture that defined the century. Disney’s Pop Century Resort celebrates 20th-century pop culture by showcasing the popular fads, toys, dance crazes, and catchphrases of the 20th century. The resort features larger than life icons from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s. Some of these giant pop culture towers reach over 60 feet and celebrate the decade they were introduced in, or when they gained their greatest popularity.
Pop Century used to be my favorite value resort, I like the theming better than the all-stars, the busses were usually more efficient but in my last few stays I have encountered a few small issues, leak in the bathroom, misplaced luggage which are typically fixed quickly, efficiently and with kindness at all Disney resorts, but this was not the case at Pop.

I think the food courts at both Pop Century and Art of Animation are some of the best food courts on Disney property. They both offer some really unique things. Since the resorts are so close in proximity, you can always walk to the other resort to enjoy their food court.
The path near the water and across the Generation Gap Bridge is a really nice walk.
There are many icons at both resorts that make for great photo ops!
If you are at a park waiting for a bus for Pop Century and one for Art of Animation comes first (or vice versa), take the bus and just walk the short distance from one resort to the other.
