    Hello moms- traveling in less than 31 days-staying at Pop Century - 2 kids 9 & 6 - which area would be the best to stay in -50's/60's etc...what area is good and for what reason, is this something we can request beforehand much appreciated thanks

    Hi Dino,

    Pop Century is my family's go-to value resort. We've stayed there at least a couple of times a year since the resort opened almost a decade ago.

    The preferred rooms at the resort cost about $15 more per night and are located in the '60s section and part of the '50s and '70s sections. They are the closest to Classic Hall and the Hippy Dippy Pool. 

    We have stayed in every "decade" of this resort and my favorite continues to be the non-preferred rooms of the '50s section. You are still relatively close to Classic Hall's food court, the bus station, the main pool and pool bar, but it is quieter, especially if you are in Building 3 facing the lake or in Building 2. From either of those buildings, too, you are within an easy walk of the Art of Animation resort, which is just across Hourglass Lake.

    Parts of the '70s section are as quiet and convenient as the '50s. I just prefer the decor of the '50s more. The only buildings I find inconvenient are in the '90s section, farthest from everything.

     I hope you enjoy Pop Century as much as my family does, regardless of which building you choose. Please let me know if I can answer any other questions as you make you plans. Have a great time with your family at the Walt Disney World resort!
