“Cute theming; housekeeping needs work”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

Stayed here for family vacation. Rooms are typical value rooms, with two full sized beds, a mini fridge, and a separate vanity/bath area. Unfortunately, the housekeeping left a lot to be desired. When we arrived, there were two used tissues on the floor, along with other small pieces of trash. The mini fridge had someone else's leftovers in it. The bed linens appeared to have been changed, so we chose not to make a big deal out of it after a long day at the park. Overall, if you're just looking for a place to crash close to the parks, the Pop Century is nicer than the other two value resorts that are currently open.

We stayed at the Pop Century hotel in mid April. Check in was fast and convenient. The room was small, with two double beds, but was clean and exactly as we expected. We stayed at the Swan hotel near Disney for a week in March and the Pop Century hotel was much nicer and definitely cleaner than the Swan. You can't beat the price if you want to stay on Disney property. It was 1/3 the price of the Swan. Having the buses for transportation to the parks is definitely worth it and I will say that we NEVER waited more than 5-10 minutes for a bus and at times we waited over 30 minutes for a bus at the Swan hotel. We never swam in the pools, but as always they looked very clean, nice, and family oriented. We've stayed at this hotel several times and will definitely come back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room close to the main building because it's a closer walk to the buses. Some of the...

We went in Easter week so we could take advantage of early park entry for resort guests. Chose this as never stayed in this, but have previously enjoyed Port Orleans, Wilderness Lodge and Animal Kingdom Lodge. Worried that rooms would be small, but not too bad. Not as much storage as we would like, but they were lovely and clean and cosy. Also got upgraded for free to a pool view room with a fridge. We were in bowling building in front of bowling pin shaped pool, which the kids adored. Got helped with luggage without asking. Asked housekeeping for extra towels for swimming and they were there in minutes. Food court was okay also, didnt really use it much. Pool bar at hippy dippy did lovely frozen fruit drinks. Would love to stay here again.

My family and I had a very nice vacation at this resort. The room was nice, the pools were nice, the people were excellent. Being Disney the price is going to be high anyway, but for the newest value resort (as of this minute anyway) I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the pool view, and there are rooms that overlook the lake but right now there is construc...

This was my first on site stay at a Disney Resort. In the past I had always stayed off site at nice hotels and could not understand why someone would want to stay on premise.

We although "Pop" is a value resort I was impressed. I'll keep this short, with Disney it's done. You need something, it's done and so well organized. They think of everything from picking up your baggage on the Magical Express to the return trip home there are no worries.

I had a small issue. Late at night I realized that the corner of my son's bed was damp under the sheets. Upon tearing the sheets apart I realized the prior tenants must have sat down in a bathing suit. Not wet, just damp. I also realized it was located close to the AC unit so it was also cold. Usually this would upset me but because the facility is so clean I was ok with it. The next day I explained my situation to the front desk. NOT 20 MINUTES LATER the mattress was replaced with a brand new one.

I was very impressed. Even down to little details such as the cleaning person placing my child's teddy beat and doll on the bed after making them.

The facilities were clean and well kept. They recently added free wifi and in room refrigerators another win.

My only negative, laundry rooms were in need of new washers and dryers. Equipment was old and took multiple times to dry. Also they could use more units.

All in all, I will be back. The entire staff should be proud. Thank you for a great stay!
