Last year, Disney announced that one of their most popular value resorts – Pop Century – would be undergoing a major facelift! The news was so exciting to me because Pop Century is my go-to resort when I go to Walt Disney World for last minute weekend trips. While the resort is definitely a no-frills, no extras kind of resort, it is extremely budget friendly and perfect for when you just need a place to rest after long days in the parks!
During a recent trip, I knew that the room refurbishment had been completed in at least one of the five sections, so I requested a room in the section I knew was complete. When I got to the resort to check in, I found out Disney had honored the request I’d put in, and I had one of the brand new rooms for the next three nights!
When I first walked in, I was absolutely amazed at the transformation. Before, the rooms had 2 full beds, carpet, and outdated furniture. These new rooms – as you can see, are modern and so fun! They feel so clean, fresh and truly brand new. There’s no longer any carpet and the amount of storage space is so great. The room is kept very modern and minimal, but it feels bright and fun.
And in case you didn’t notice the biggest change – there’s a queen sized bed, with a queen sized Murphy bed that you can pull down – an option that is amazing for those who don’t need two beds in their room, as well as a great option for those with kiddos. Not to mention, that small upgrade from a full sized bed to a queen sized – that’s a difference you can feel, I promise! (And even though I was traveling by myself on this trip, I slept in both beds, and both are totally comfortable!)
As of right now, the remodel is not complete, so a “new” room cannot be guaranteed until then. However, the remodel is scheduled to be complete in late Spring 2018, so we will keep you updated on when these rooms are officially ready for you to stay in!
Now that the interior of the Pop Century resort is being remodeled, I’m anxious to see if the exterior gets a makeover, too. So far, no changes to the outside, but that’s okay because the oversized characters and toys are amazing and so family friendly!
Pop Century is hands down, my favorite go-to value resort on Disney property. I’d love to help you plan a Disney vacation and help you choose the right resort for you vacation. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how to make your Disney dreams come true!
