    We are staying at pop century for the first time at the end of Jan. What is the best section and bldg to request to be close to the main bldg with regular room rate, are should I upgrade us to preferred. (Don't really want to spend the extra) Whats best?

    Hi Dawn,

    I enjoyed my stay at Disney's Pop Century resort last May.  I bet you're really going to love this fun resort!

    If you have a standard room, then you will be situated more than 500 feet from Classic Hall (the resort center where the Guest Services desk and the Everything Pop shop and food court are located). I suggest you ask for a room in the 60's or 70's buildings during your stay.  The 60's buildings surround an adorable pool so that would be my first choice.  If no standard rooms are available there during your stay, the 70's buildings would be my second choice. 

    During my visit, I stayed in the 90's building, which is about as far away from Classic Hall as you can get.  Even in this building, it wasn't a terribly long walk to the bus stop.  If you don't mind a little extra walking, I suggest you save your money and stay in a standard (as opposed to a preferred) room.

    Have fun in late January and be sure to try the tie-dye cheesecake in the food court!  If you have any additional questions about Disney's Pop Century Resort, don't hesitate to let me know.
