    Pop Century Resort

    This is for anyone who has stayed at the Pop Century Resort. I was wondering what building did you guys stay in. The 50s,60s,70s,80s, or 90s?
    Every time that I went I was in the 60s building.

    We stayed in the 50's building. I really enjoyed it. We were in a room that overlooked the courtyard facing the little pond. It was soooo quiet. Very nice. I love the YoYo's. LOL!

    May 2006 - 80's A (Roger Rabbit).
    October 2006 - 50's C (Lady (?) )
    August 2007 - 70's B (Big Wheel)
    November 2007 - 50's A (Tramp (?) )

    I've enjoyed all the rooms. There's really no difference between them, except for the poster-sized picture frame in your room, and the wallpaper border. And of course, the location. In that respect, I think the 70's were the best, as it was closest to the bus stops and Classic Hall, but even the farthest building away (50's C) that I've stayed at was not a long or difficult walk. And I do love the variety of all the pools and icons.

    The first trip, we specifically requested the 80's, because I and my friends are Children of The 80's, so we figured that would be cool for nostalgia. After that, I made no requests, and was perfectly content with what I'd been given.

    The one time we went we stayed in the 90s.....which was probably the one building I didn't want. I found the giant green cell phones real annoying. I was hoping for something a little more retro.

    We stayed in the 60s and had a room that overlooked the pond. One tip to anyone who hasn't stayed there yet is that the parking lot that you will be directed to is often a good distance from you room. It's better to drive around and find a spot that is the closest to your building. BTW, ASMo is our favorite resort.

    The first time we stayed at Pop was just a few days after it opened-Dec. 03. We were in the 80s, but it was soooo far from the food court and bus stop. Then we stayed at the 50s. Loved it! If we stay there again, we will request the 50s.

    I stayed in the 70's Building #6 (Giant Mickey Phone!) facing Hourglass Lake and I liked it quite well. Not far from the main building and the busses but far enough away from the pool to not get the noise of people swimming.

    I have stayed in the 50's and 80's, I preferr the 50's building. I have always stayed at the 50's for 3 years in row and only once stayed in the 80's over by Roger Rabbit. And it is a hike to the bar and Main building. I think the 50's is nice and not far at all for all the buses, bar, food court.

    I stayed at POP one night in 2004- I was there with my sister and two other friends. The cool thing was we were all born in the 50's and we stayed in the 50's building!! Awesome!

    We stayed in the 80's back in '06....loved the resort but we would request a different section next time--there was nothing wrong with it, i just think the 50s 60s or 70s sound more exciting.

    We also stayed right near the Mickey Phone in the 70's building, but we were on the side facing the other 70's building. Nice place to stay. We were about 1/2 way down toward the end of the building and never had any problem with noise. it was a nice short walk to the main building and you could cut right through to get to the bus stop.

    Really enjoyed my first stay at Pop (August 07)

    I've stayed at 70, 80 & 90s. While they (80s or90s) are not super close to the pools or food court, they do have their own parking lots really close, so that's where we have stayed most often. It's never to long a hike to the buses, and we rarely use the pools, etc.
