Disney’s Pop Century Resort

Disney’s Pop Century Resort is one of my favorite places to stay at Walt Disney World. We have stayed here three times and enjoyed each and every stay. So this week I am going to cover the resort in detail and highlight what I love about it. First up, the room.

While the room isn’t the biggest, the accessible rooms at Pop Century have plenty of space to easily move around in without bumping into stuff. The front of the room has an open space that we generally use to store our cooler and suitcases.

There is also adequate space between the bed and dresser.

There is also enough space between the wall and the bed that you can use either side of the it. Believe me this is not the case in a lot of hotels and I enjoy being able to sleep on my side of the bed.

The dresser is also easy to use and I can get to all of the drawers. I do wish there were handles so they could be easier for some to use. Its been reported on several sites that all value resorts will have refrigerators by the end of April. Yay! You can see in the photo below where it is located which made it easy for me to use.

The sink is separate from the toilet and shower and is easy to roll under. The closet area is to the left and there is a lowered shelf that I could use.

The shower area is big and open. I haven’t had any trouble with the bench and the shower head is adjustable. There is a problem with drainage and the entire bathroom floor can get pretty wet. We typically roll up a towel and place it at the bottom of the shower curtain. It helps catch some of the water and keeps the non shower area dry.

Overall I love the rooms at Pop Century. Writing this post up really made me wish I was there! If you have any questions just leave me a comment below.

    Is there a push button to open the door?

      There isn’t. The only resorts I’ve come across a push button are the deluxe resorts.

    We have been to Disney every year since 2008 and we are DVC members. It’s a great place to vacation for the handicapped. I am in a wheelchair. There are a few things we’ve encountered like the bed heights are too high and I’ve mentioned it several time and they still have not made any changes. Also, be sure when you are staying at a large resort that you request a room near your bus stop and near the main check in. It’s a long way to go with luggage etc when you are checking out! Have a great time!! We sure do!

    Does the value resorts have coffee available anywhere?

      You would have to go to the main building for coffee, there are no coffee makers in the rooms.

    My family & I are going to Disney for the first time since my husbands accident. We have been several times before. This will actually be our first trip of any kind since he has been in a chair. I was wondering if the toilet was lowered? Thanks for all of the info. it has really helped us!

    Great write up. Very happy about the refrigerator! I also like that Disney thought about it and made sure you could access each side of the bed. You are right. Sleeping on your side makes all the difference in the world.

    My family stayed at the Pop Century in January 2012, although we didn’t stay in a handicap room I was impressed with the room we did stay in. We had 2 double beds & still plenty of room for our luggage & I had a refrigerator rented for the week. I loved the Mickey carpet & bedspreads. Overall a great experience at the Pop.
