On spring break 2016, we found ourselves with an extra night at the World and decided it would be a great opportunity to check out one of the few resorts where we hadn’t yet been guests. One phone call later, we were booked at Disney’s Pop Century, a value resort, with the cousins. It was a rainy, short stay, but Pop is definitely a lively resort with lots of fun touches. We’ll have to visit again just for the photo ops!

In this fun lobby, you’ll find check-in and concierge, caricature artists and some awesome pop culture memorabilia from all the decades represented at the resort. Everything Pop for gifts and dining is just off the lobby, as is the arcade.
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s fun are featured throughout the buildings of Pop Century with bits of pop culture making it into the rooms, as well.
Rooms include two double beds (some king beds are available), flat screen TV, dresser, a table with two chairs, small luggage rack, mini fridge, small safe, free Wi-fi. Rooms are standard, pool view and preferred (closest to lobby, food and transportation).
Offering two table service restaurants, multiple quick service locations and lounges, as well as pizza delivery from 4:00 to midnight, you definitely won’t go hungry at Coronado Springs!
Everything Pop Food Court
Pop in and choose food from any of 7 stations: grab ’n’ go items, grill fare, pizza, pasta, sandwiches, healthy choices and ethnic cuisine. Specialties include oven-fired flatbreads and house-made desserts, so don’t forget to leave room for ice cream or their famous tie-dye cheesecake! Breakfast is also served. Everything Pop is open from 6:00 A.M. to midnight.
Petals Pool Bar
Sip on house specialties like the tropical Banana Cabana or Big Island Iced Tea while hanging by the Hippy Dippy Pool! Cocktails, draft beer, sangria and wine are also available.
Take a dip in one of the three pools featured at Pop, or hang out at the playground. If you’re feeling athletic, jogging trails are available and surrey bike rental is located next door at Disney’s Art of Animation. Cap off your day with a movie under the stars.
We found our way to Pop for a last minute night’s stay at the end of our spring break 2016 trip. We were exhausted after a week of fun, and it was a short, rainy stay at Pop, so I didn’t take many pictures. I’ll be sure to visit again on a sunny day soon because this resort is full of fun photo ops!!
