The whirlwind dream has ended! Our most recent Walt Disney World trip is over and we are back into routine and the cold, but we have taken a lifetime of new memories home with us! I say whirlwind as this was almost the trip that never was, but I am so thankful we could make it work as boy was it was a special one! This was our first non DVC trip in a while and our first trip in such a long time that didn’t include a split stay. It was also the shortest period of time we have stayed at Walt Disney World for, but we crammed so much in we didn’t feel like we missed out on any time at all!
We spent the duration of our stay at Disney’s Pop Century Resort in a newly renovated room in the 60’s area. This was our little family’s second stay at Pop, the first being just after Hurricane Matthew in 2016 when funnily enough, we stayed in the same building, just a floor below! The location was very convenient indeed, being just a short walk from the main building, bus stop and the new Disney Skyliner station. We took great advantage of the Skyliner and used it everyday bar one during our stay. We also made good use of the resort bus times which are now available on My Disney Experience. We were able to shorten our wait time on the most part, by leaving the room when a bus was almost due. A great addition for sure!
The room looked great since its recent refurb and was bright, airy, roomy and clean. I loved the addition of the Mickey artwork and my Little Peter Pan loved the new pull down king sized bed. If you have read my recent posts you will know that Quinn has a thing for pull down beds, he loves them! I am so glad that Disney are implementing more of these into the resorts, as they are a real big space saver. There was plenty storage space available, a new small storage area next to the fridge and a huge TV, perfect to wake up to with resort TV playing in the background! The bathroom refurb brightened up the area significantly and definitely made it feel much more spacious with the new units and shelves. I also loved the addition of the glass shower doors apposed to the usual curtain.
The room refurb is definitely a wonderful addition to the resort and reiterates why Pop Century is our favourite value resort at Walt Disney World. Do you have a stay planned at Pop Century soon?
