Disney’s Pop Century Resort VIP Top Tips
This section is sponsored by the Disney experts at The Magic for Less Travel, Authorized Disney Vacation Planner
At Pop Century near the ‘50s buildings keep a look out for rabbits. They moved in many years ago when the resort was only a couple of years old and they always make our day when we see them outside our room early in the morning.
At Pop Century, we request a water view room, first floor. It gets us down by the lake, it’s nice and quiet, and we have seen local wildlife. There are lots of bunnies and we had ducks practically walk into our room one time.
Find the outdoor Twister game available at Pop Century.
At Pop Century, you can catch some of the Epcot fireworks from certain areas of the resort. In the ‘50s section, you may catch a view from the fourth floor balconies.
I think the food courts at both Pop Century and Art of Animation are some of the best food courts on Disney property. They both offer some really unique things. Since the resorts are so close in proximity, you can always walk to the other resort to enjoy their food court.
The path near the water and across the Generation Gap Bridge is a really nice walk.
There are many icons at both resorts that make for great photo ops!
If you are at a park waiting for a bus for Pop Century and one for Art of Animation comes first (or vice versa), take the bus and just walk the short distance from one resort to the other.
