    to DWT!

    Pop Century has 3 pools, a Bowling Pin Pool near the 1950's buildings, the Hippy Dippy Pool near the 1960's buildings and a Computer pool near the 1980's buildings, so there isn't too long a walk to get to one. Refridgerators are available, but you have to request one and they currently cost $10 per day. I don't know about the coffee makers.

    Pop Century is awesome and you will really like it. Three pools. The 70's building is nice especially by the corvette stingray

    I stayed there in October... Way too crowded for my liking. The theming is nice though.. Depends on which building you are in for the distance you will walk.. We were close to the main pool so it wasn't a far walk to the food court or the buses...

    We were at Pop Century in August and the noise wasn't to bad but you have to expect noise with a value resort

    I agree with devkxl.....I was there April 18-24 and I found it to be pretty good. My gf and I stayed in the 90's building. It was a long walk to the food and buses but you can walk through the parking lot and that cuts a lot of time off. The pools were nice but there were a lot of people in them during the day.

    The only other thing I noticed was that the buses seemed to take longer to come around. I have stayed at the all star resorts and it seems they have a higher frequency of pickups (perhaps it is me). The idea is really neat and I am sure you will like it. The food was very decent and I usually ate breakfast there everyday.

    Have fun and let us know what you think.

    It's not a long walk to any of the pools. The 90's building is the farthest away. I prefer the 50's or 60's buildings. The food is pretty good. The parmesean chicken is the best I have had anywhere. Unfortunately they don't have coffeemakers in the rooms. But the food court opens at 6:00. I generally bring my own coffeemaker with me. I'm not the nicest person in the morning without my coffee. I'd hate to upset anyone. When exactly are you going? I'll be there with my family May 18-22.

    I stayed in the 80's building last summer and had the computer pool right down from us. It wasn't a bad walk to the buses, food court or anywhere else actually. My only complaint was that the outter walls weren't very well insulated for noise. We were constantly hearing kids run up and down the hall and even in the pool way past 3am.

    The food was good, typical food court food from any of the resorts, maybe a little more choices. Make sure you try the dessert there, they have some really good ones that can only be found at PC.

    I'd still say POR is the best resort on property!

    Hey!
    We stayed at Pop Century in Sept. 2004 & then again in Jan. 2005. We enjoyed it both times & for the price, we thought it was great.(We spend very little time in the room anyway, so we don't need lots of space.)
    It is a value resort, so you can expect to have some crowds at peak times. If you want to be close to a pool & to the food court/bus stop area, stay in the '60's building. It is closest to both. Also, we have a wide range of food tastes (did that make sense?) in our group & everyone was pleased with the options. (Try the tie-dyed cheesecake!)

    ***Be sure to stop by the food court at either 8am or 5pm. You'll get to see the cast members either all do the twist or the hustle. You can even join in if you like! **

    Have never stayed at the Pop Century. I prefer the Grand Floridian for peace and quiet.

    Just there

    Was just there in February. I really liked the place, although we were only there for 1 night. It seemed kind of out of the way compared to the other resorts, it took a long bus ride to get to Downtown Disney. We were in the 80's section and the computer pool was right around the corner - a pretty big pool too!
    The food court seemed to have A LOT of options. I reccommend the Very Sloppy Joe - it lives up to it's name. You gotta eat that ****er with a fork!
