Some are unaware that many of the Pop Century rooms are refurbished in a really cool new way. Queen beds (one is a drop down murphy bed) laminate flooring, lots of under-bed storage, and bright contemporary decor. I am a fan of value resorts and I plan to stay at Pop on our next trip- I love the new rooms!
I have a friend who checked in yesterday and got one of the newly refurbished rooms! The murphy bed looks great! It's definitely on our list to try next time now that there are queen beds!

This past Fall Break, I was able to travel to my favorite place and spend one night at Disney’s Pop Century Resort. This was my first visit to Pop Century and I have fallen in love with the new rooms! The former rooms were very much like the All-Stars – two double beds, Disney-inspired bright colored bedding. In the new rooms, everything has changed!
The carpet has been replaced with laminate flooring. For this reason, I asked for a upper floor so I didn’t hear tapping above me. The best new feature – the double beds have been upgraded to queen size. There is a queen bed with all white sheets and plenty of storage space underneath with eight pillows piled on the bed. Four of those are for the Murphy Queen that can be folded up into the cabinet to create a table. This process is super easy and can be completed in seconds!
The dresser and cabinet have a much more modern look with a glass-front mini-fridge and a large flat screen to boot. There is great storage everywhere! The dresser, side tables, and bathroom have plenty of shelves. I love the hooks to hang wet bathing suits, bags, or jackets and the many, many outlets and USB chargers. You could plug in eight devices minimum! I may have missed some USBs there were so many of them.
We also took some time to explore the resort and had lots of fun taking pictures. There are three pools and each is large enough where you will never feel crowded when you go for a dip. I also loved how close the resort is to Art of Animation. We made a short walk across the bridge and checked out the Nemo pool and splash pad.
