    Hi! Coming to DW 09/21 for our 7th trip! It will just be my DH, DS 4, and me, staying at Pop. What section do you recommend most for us? Would like to be close to buses and food court. Don't have a preference about the pool really. Thanks! :)

    Hi Renee,

    One of the many things I like about the Pop Century resort is its relative compactness. We stay there frequently and find that the '50s section is our favorite for its decor and proximity to Classic Hall, the food court and the buses.

    On our last visit, we were in Building 2, the end building, and I thought it was an easy, convenient walk to the food court to get muffins and coffee for my family each morning while they showered and dressed.

    We also like Building 3, which faces Hourglass Lake and the Art of Animation resort. You may want to walk over to that resort so that your son can see all the decorations from Cars, Finding Nemo, The Lion King and the Little Mermaid.

    Some of the rooms in the '50s decade are preferred, costing about $15 extra a night, and are a tad bit closer to the center of the action. However, we always go for the standard room because we don't feel like the preferred offers that much extra. 

    The '50s buildings surround one of the quiet pools, shaped like a bowling pin. The entire section normally is quiet.

    I hope that is helpful. Please feel free to write back if I can offer any other tips or answer any other questions.  September is a great time to visit because the crowds are relatively low. Here's wishing you a wonderful vacation with your family. Enjoy!
