    staying at Pop Century could someone tell me the difference between a Standard pool view room and a Preferred pool view room?

    Hi, Ted!

    Whether you book a Standard Room or a Preferred Room at Disney's Pop Century Resort, you will get the exact same room.  Every room at this resort is about 260 square feet with 2 double beds (or 1 king bed). 

    So what's the difference? Location!  A Preferred Pool View Room will put you near the Hippy Dippy Pool, the feature pool area.  A Standard Pool View Room will put you near either the Bowling Pool or Computer Pool, still wonderful but smaller pools compared to the feature pool.

    If walking a bit further is not a big deal to you, it is probably worth it to stick with a Standard Room. It's any easy way to save (about) $10 a night. Personally, I don't mind the extra walk, and I like that it is a bit quieter in the Standard Room section, with not so much foot traffic. I also find the Standard Rooms to be more convenient if you have a car since you will be closer to a parking lot. I always request the 50's section; I love the location.

    Whichever room type you choose, just make sure to make a visit to Everything POP Dining for some yummy Tie Dye cheesecake! Yum!

    Enjoy your stay at my favorite Value Resort!
