    What are some CS dining rec.for lunch and dinner located near Pop but not in a park? Using Disney transportation. Trying to have a few options for the 2 days we have 4 CS meals in a row. Will also eat at Pop food court. Any suggestions will help!

    While the resort Caribbean Beach is near Pop Century, it would be more time-efficient to head to Downtown Disney. Using Disney bus transportation to go to different resorts requires transferring at a hub. However I will give you a couple options as well.

    At Downtown Disney, I would head to Earl of Sandwich or Wolfgang Puck Express. Both places have excellent counter-service food.

    If you will be leaving a park prior to lunch, I would head first to a nearby location for your meal prior to heading back to Pop Century. For example, if you are departing the Magic Kingdom before dinner, walk over to the Contemporary Resort and have your meal at the Contempo Cafe. Or monorail to the Polynesian to eat at Captain Hook's. You'll need to return to the Magic Kingdom to pick up a bus back to Pop Century.

    If you are at Pop Century already and want to dine at a counter-service other than Everything Pop, take a bus to the Animal Kingdom then transfer to a bus to the Animal Kingdom Lodge. You can dine at The Mara. Another option is to take a bus to Disney's Hollywood Studios and then a bus to the Caribbean Beach Resort where you can dine at the Old Port Royale food court.

    I would look at menus at www.AllEars.Net so that you are definitely using your precious vacation time to travel to places that actually have different food than what is offered at Pop Century.

    You'll get more variety of food if you time your meals to eat in the parks prior to returning to Pop Century for a mid-day rest.

    Let me know if I can help any further. Happy WDW planning!
