Pop Century All Star Resort

On our next trip to DisneyWorld we will be staying at the Pop Century All Star resort. This will be our first time staying at this popular resort. In 2015, we did stay at the nearby Art of Animation Resort.

A brief description of Pop Century Resort From Disney's Website:

Experience the unforgettable fads of the 1950s through the 1990s all over again. From yo-yos and Play-Doh(R) to Rubik's Cube(R) and rollerblades, this Resort hotel salutes the timeless fashions, catch phrases, toys, and dances that captivated the world through the decades.

Here's some things that I learned about the resort.

Some Fun Facts about the Pop Century Resort

First opened December 14, 2003.

Food Court name is "Everything Pop"

There are three pools for guest to select from: Hippy Dippy Pool, Bowling Pool and Computer Pool

Guest should bring their own towels to the pool as towels are not available at the pools.

Petals Pool Bar is available at the Hippy Dippy Pool for Mix drinks, beer, wine, and soda.

From late October 2016 through early January 2017 the Computer Pool at Disney's Pop Century Resort will be closed for refurbishment. Beginning early January, the Hippy Dippy Pool will be unavailable. The Bowling Pool will remain open for your enjoyment. The Computer Pool will reopen on January 3, 2017.

Resort rooms will undergo a "hard goods" refurbishment starting October 16; the refurbishment will run through much of 2017. (It don't hurt to ask for a quiet room when checking in!)

Hidden Mickey's from the AllEars Newsletter

Inside the Pop Century gift shop, near the exit to the bus stop, check the wall behind the cash registers to spot round gift boxes that form a classic Mickey. The image appears twice in faux package-locker windows. One image is in the second window from the top of the second column of windows from the right side. The other is in the third window from the left on the top row.

Two black classic Mickeys are on the keyboard of the huge computer outside near the Computer Pool. Both are on the lower row of keys. One is the second key from the left and the other is the second key from the right. (More obvious decorative classic Mickeys are in the computer monitor's screensaver.)
