Hmmm..two things that make us think twice about staying here again...

New Paltz

We stayed from Sunday to Friday at Pop Century in the 50s section building #3. The room was updated nicely, small fridge, iron, and pod coffee maker were helpful to have. Reason one to possible spend more for a better room in a better class resort...the food at the resort was really sub par...think school cafeteria...yep...when you are paying good money for a dining plan and the food is terrible that is a reason to go somewhere else to stay..first breakfasts we had was a bagel with scrambled eggs, cheese and bacon. It was hard like a hockey puck..had to scrape the egg and cheese off the bagel and put catsup on it to make it edible..all the food is made ahead and sits in a semi warmer pan..except the one far far right station which will actually make you an omelette..we did that the next morning and it was better. They have toasters and microwaves so if you can toast a bagel yourself. The pancakes were not good at all...stale and had also sat out too long..the coffee though was good and a gal came around to your table asking if you would like a refill. We did not try either the lunch or dinner based on what we saw which was food sitting out way too long..the turkey dinner looked exactly like what you would get in a school lunch with dried up green beans and questionable mashed potatoes and gravy...sandwiches sitting out looked stale and had very thick bread...same for pizza..think thick crust..sitting out on a warmer looking pretty lame... Reason two to consider staying at a better resort is the bus system. Because Pop is a value resort you are low man on the totem pole and your bus arrives at each park or destination at the farthest bus terminal so you are walking between a quarter and half mile back and forth to the buses before you even get into a park!...compared to say Contemporary guests who are right at the front first terminal at each park. The Skyliner was out of service the entire time we were there also and it only goes to set places.. The folks who work at Pop were lovely and always helpful and polite.

Good value, VALUE Disney Resort

Cockburn, Australia

Pop Century provided us with a pleasant Disney stay experience. It wasn't overly Disney in your face, which was nice after spending so much time at the parks. It is well priced for what is provided. Top tip - Preferred room saves on much walking especially after a long day at the park and its close to the pool. Facilities - For a value resort, the facilities were sufficient for a family of 4 that spent 4 out of the 5 days at the parks. Swimming Pool, Pool activities for the kids - it was always busy but never felt full. Quick Service meal area - Typical fast food affair (see below) Shop, Laundry facilities - a good number of washer/dryers (though there can never be enough if other guests aren't respectful enough to keep an eye on their machines). It definitely isn't 5 star, but was sufficient for what we needed. Room - We had a Preferred room on the second floor facing the garden (not pool area) which was perfect as it was in the main area that was close to all the facilities and we weren't affected by the pool noise. So, this is highly recommended. Our room was one of the recently refurbished rooms with 2 queen beds (one was a Murphy bed), no carpets, small bar fridge which was cool and not cold. We had a bath in our bathroom though it never got used. Toilet in bathroom/separate sink area. We didn't have any complains with the room. There was sufficient space for 2 adults and 2 tweens. Air-conditioning was cold but a little noisy with the auto function. Beds and pillows were comfortable. Didn't find it too noisy except when you had kids running up and down the corridors but what do you expect...it is a children orientated resort. Location - It was a fair way out from the parks but about 10 mins by car to other areas of Kissimmee like Walmart, Applebees, etc which made it relatively convenient. Staff - All generally friendly and helpful. No one stood out to us as being exceptional. Transportation - The Skyliner was a couple of weeks away from working when we were there so we had the use of the shuttle buses which were convenient but not necessarily reliable on timing. More often than not, the buses were late and/or the app/digital sign board wasn't working when telling you how far the buses were away. Could definitely do with more shade in the lining up area. Wait varied from 5 - 30 minutes. The only really good thing was that we had our own buses that went directly to and from the parks. Quick Service - This was probably the worst aspect of Pop Century. The meals were very average. So much so that we avoided eating there. We did use the microwave and toasters provided to self cater breakfast. Low on nutrition and high on junk. I would have expected more healthy options in meals but that wasn't the case. Having said that, it was always busy with families. We ended up taking an Uber to eat outside of the resort in an effort to get better nutrition and self-catered breakfast to do the same. Would I stay here again - Yes. For the price,facilities and our overall use - definitely.
