Pop Century Resort Overview
Taking a trip through the last half century of American pop culture is what lies at the cornerstone of Disney's Pop Century resort. As one of Disney's 'value' resorts, Pop Century has offerings similar to other resorts in its category in terms of room size and amenities, and general layout.
The theme at this resort covers the 1950s - 1990s, and each section represents a different decade with iconic images ranging from Big Wheels to bowling pins, 8 track tapes, and Rubik's Cubes, among many others. There are a total of ten buildings at the resort, each with four floors (and elevators). The main building is called "Classic Hall" and is where the check in desk, gift shop, food court and arcade are located.
There are three pools at the resort, with the Hippy Dippy pool being the largest among them. Pools are also located in the 90s area (the Computer pool) and the 50s area (Bowling pool). The food court at Pop Century is called "Everything Pop," and it serves an assortment of food ranging from baked goods to pasta and pizza and grilled specialties.
Rooms at the Pop Century are consistent with Disney's other value resorts. A typcial room is 260-square feet with either 1 Queen-size bed plus 1 Queen-size pull down bed or 1 King bed. Preferred rooms are located closer to Classic Hall and are available for an additional charge.
Located near ESPN's Wide World of Sports Complex, Disney's Pop Century Resort includes two 5,000-square-foot arcades, a food court and shopping area, courtyards, three heated pools in wildly-fun shapes, one kiddie pool, a playground and recreational paths for riding surrey bikes around Hourglass Lake.
The "Everything Pop" food court is located inside Classic Hall. The food court is divided into several stations, each offering a different specialty as well as grab-n-go sandwiches, snacks and drinks. The food court serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Among the menu offerings are flatbreads, burgers, pasta dishes, nachos, chicken, fresh sandwiches and more. There is also a full service bar, Classic Concoctions, located within the food court as well as Petals Pool Bar just off the main pool. For a complete menu of what's offered at the Everything Pop food court, check out our DIS menu database.

Services are also available through Kids Nite Out to plan parties and special events. Advanced reservations are required, and services are available 24 hours per day. There is a 4 hour minimum for children 6 months to 12 years old. Cancellations must be made 24 hours in advance to avoid the 4 hour minimum cancellation fee.

Poolside games and activities happen each day at the Hippy Dippy Pool outside Classic Hall. There are dance parties, games that include 'Goofy Bingo', Disney trivia, Name that Tune and more. There is also a playground located behind the 1970s building near Classic Hall.
'Movies under the Stars' happens each night near the giant yo-yo. In the event of inclement weather, the movie is shown in the kids playroom next to the front desk.
Classic Hall is the site for some other fun activities, including dance parties, pin trading and Vinylmation trading. Check the recreation activities flyer for specific times.
The 5000-square foot 'Fast Forward' arcade is located just across from the Everything Pop food court in Classic Hall and contains a wide variety of video games to suit most ages.
The rooms at Pop Century are divided into two categories: standard and preferred. The preferred rooms are in the section closest to the main building where the food court is located, as well as closer to the resort transportation.
The rooms’ décor is evocative of the period represented in that section of the resort. Each guestroom has 1 Queen-size bed plus 1 Queen-size pull down bed (or 1 King-size bed which must be requested when making your reservation), a beverage cooler, nightstand, telephone, small table with 2 chairs, armoire, television, wall mirror, clock radio and an open closet area with shelves for extra storage. A vanity area with a single sink and mirror is separate from the tub and commode. A small wall safe to hold your valuables is located in the closet area. All rooms are equipped with central air conditioning. Complimentary WiFi is also available.
There are disabled-accessible rooms that will have a larger bathroom with a wheelchair-accessible shower in place of a tub. There is an elevator so even accessing the top floors is easy for guests. Connecting rooms may be requested. The rooms are 260-square feet and sleep 4, or 4 plus a child under the age of 3 in a crib. Also available are bed rails and cribs (the pack-n-play variety). Call Housekeeping to request. If there are more than 2 adults in the same room, there is an additional charge of $15 per person, per night plus the resort tax.
There are 3 heated pools at Pop Century that are maintained at 82 degrees. The Hippy Dippy Pool is 235,000 gallons and is the feature pool here. It is located near the 1960s buildings and just outside the food court and main lobby. The entire pool is shaped like a big flower with 4 flower showers on the pool deck that spray water into the pool. The water is deepest near the drains and shallow towards the edge. The Hippy Dippy kids pool is a zero entry level with fountains that shoot out from the center. The deck around the kiddie pool is padded so children are able to play carefree. Petals Pool Bar offers a selection of drinks and food, but no food or drinks are allowed in the pool. You will also find a ping-pong table here and a temporary tattoo station.
The Computer pool is considered one of the quieter pools and is located near the 1990s buildings. This rectangular pool is shaped like a computer monitor with a huge spongy/soft floor keyboard deck located towards the back of the pool behind the pool chairs. The service buildings nearby resemble a stack of floppy disks and a central processing unit.
The Bowling pool is also considered a quiet pool and is located near the 1950s buildings. The pool is in the shape of a bowling pin and the pool deck acts as the bowling lane, including the arrow guides in the concrete. The service building here is designed to look like a bowling shoe locker bin.
no slides or hot tubs at any of the value resort pools, but there are spraying water features in the Hippy Dippy Pool. All pools at Pop Century range in
depth from 3ft to 4 ft 9in. Guests may use any of these 3 swimming pools during their
vacation. There are showers, lockers, restrooms, and a laundromat at each pool
All children who are not potty trained are required to wear swim diapers for the safety of other guests. These can be purchased at any of the gift shops on property.

The Disney Skyliner gives Resort guests another means of transportation! Disney’s Pop Century Resort and Disney’s Art of Animation Resort share a Disney Skyliner station that feels whimsical and contextual with both resorts.
Upon departing the gondola station, Skyliner passengers ascend over Hourglass Lake and can enjoy a panoramic view of these two colorful resorts. More info on Disney Skyliner...
Guests who drive either their own vehicle or a rental car to Walt Disney World should know that a standard overnight self-parking fee of $15 per night will be applied to the guest hotel folio upon check-out.
