    We are staying at Pop Century in 2 weeks. We would like a refurbished room but paid for preferred so we were close to food and transportation. What is the best choice if there is not a refurbished room ready in the preferred buildings?

    Hi Kelli,

    Just a few more days until your vacation starts. Awesome! Let me help you quickly so you can finish packing your bags!

    Disney's Pop Century Resort takes you back to the fun days of the 20th century, with giant icons representing the different decades. And now the Resort is undergoing a multi-year refurbishment. My family recently stayed on one of the newly re-imagined rooms, and they are gorgeous. The beds have been upgraded and now you have one Queen Bed and a Queen Table Bed. During the day, you have a nice wooden table with chairs, but at night, it magically converts into a super comfortable bed. You have USB charging ports throughout, electronic safe, and even a coffee maker.

    At this time, the 90s and 80s section has been completed, and work has started on the 70s section. I am not sure if there are any preferred rooms ready, but rooms in building 9 of the 80s section would be the closest ones to Classic Hall. You definitely want to let them know of your preference by placing a request. Remember that they cannot be guaranteed, but every effort will be made to accommodate you.

    One last tip: if you do Online Check-In you may be able to go straight to your room, bypassing the Front Desk. Download the My Disney Experience mobile app which will give you your room number when your room is ready. See you real soon!
