    Hi Moms! Staying at Pop (pre cruise) 03/04-03/08 with DH and 3 DS (16,4,4) and me. Booked preferred pool view. Where will these rooms be located? First time at Pop so any advise/tips appreciated. Will not have a car. Thanks!

    Hi Linda,

    Your preferred pool view rooms should be in the '60s section, facing the Hippy Dippy Pool. You will be right in the center of the action!

    My family stays at Pop Century frequently. One reason we like this value resort is that it has a single bus station and does not share with other resorts. You catch the buses to all four theme parks, the water parks and Downtown Disney right in front of Classic Hall, which also has the food court, Everything Pop gift shop, arcade and front desk.

    Being without a car shouldn't be an issue at all. From Pop Century, you are about a 20-minute bus ride away from Magic Kingdom or Animal Kingdom, less from Hollywood Studios and Epcot.

    Pop doesn't have a table service restaurant, but we enjoy the food court and find it has a great deal of variety for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You also can walk easily to the Art of Animation resort -- across the Generation Gap bridge near the '60s section -- and check out the Landscape of Flavors food court there, which has more exotic fare.

    When our daughters were younger, we liked to get a whole pizza from the food court and eat it at one of the tables pool-side, near the Petals Pool Bar.

    Your room will come equipped with two double beds, a small table and two chairs, a TV and a small refrigerator. The rooms are smaller than those at the moderate or deluxe resorts, but we find they are completely adequate, especially since we tend to spend most of our time in the parks.

    I hope that helps and that your family enjoys Pop Century as much as my family does. Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and please let us know if we can answer any other questions as you make your last-minute plans.
