Disney is currently in the process of remodeling all of the rooms at the Pop Century Resort and we have a first look inside of the newly remodeled lodging for you today.

We start with a little refresher course for those of you who may not remember what the current rooms at Disney’s Pop Century Resort look like…

I admittedly haven’t stayed at Pop Century since 2012 and the rooms look much worse than I had remembered. Perhaps they haven’t aged very well.

The carpet was looking (and smelling) pretty bad.

The current style rooms feature two double size beds, but that is about to change…

Welcome to the newly remodeled rooms at Disney’s Pop Century Resort, soon what all guest rooms at the resort will look like.

A look from the other side with the second bed pulled down. Both are queen size.

The fold down bed is a table when stood up. These units already exist across the lake at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort.


The entry with new curtains.

Yes, there is no carpet. It makes the room look (and smell) much nicer in my opinion.

The other queen bed sits on a new base that allows storage room underneath.

This new unit by the doorway holds the coffee maker, ice bucket, and new mini-fridge with a see-thru door. This will ensure that you never forget that you have items in the fridge.

“And what do we got on this thing, a Cuisinart?”

When pulled down, the headboard features Pluto sleeping in a Pop Art style. Get it?

There is a light above the bed, inside of the unit, which can be turned on and off via the small switch underneath the Pluto art.

New model phones in each room, as well as plenty of electrical outlets, including USB.

A set on each of the three end tables probably means you won’t have to fight over outlets anymore.

A rather large television can be found above the dresser, which of course has even more outlets. And yes, they now have a resort channel that plays AVATAR 24-hours…

This unit is quite large, and with the fridge moved, there is even more room for clothes.

The drowsy to the bathroom, as well as the adjoining room.

The sliding door to the bathroom features a mirror.

The showers now feature sliding glass doors.

The new resort toiletries have been rolled out at Pop Century.

So far, just one building (number 8) at the resort has been completely changed over to these new style rooms, but they are moving from building to building very quickly to remodel all of the resort rooms to this new style.

So, what do you think of this new style room for Disney’s Pop Century Resort.

I don’t know about you, but there are times when planning a Disney vacation can be overwhelming! There are so many options, where to stay, when to go, is this the best price.

  • A friend of mine was wondering if the Murphy bed has a regular thickness mattress, similar to the standing queen bed in the room. Anybody? We are planning a visit next year and this bothers her a great deal.

    • I have stayed at Art of Animation and slept on the pull down table bed. It was very comfortable. Not at all like a pull out couch. I would not worry.

  • Spoke with 3 different cast members and all 3 are denying that these rooms exist. If we could get a room here with a queen and Murphy instead of doubles, we would absolutely book here. Why are they saying these don’t exist??

  • Thank you for sharing all of the pictures of the new rooms at Pop Century. I’m loving it. Can’t wait to get there in November. All the improvements are fantastic.

  • Does the Pop Century still have the option of a king and double with a roll in shower with this new remodel ? The king size bed won’t work for my party of three. Thank you for such a through review of the remodeled rooms.

  • Thanks for the beautiful pictures! Don’t like the shower door tracks, but will put up with it. We are total Pop fans.

  • Love the floors and bigger beds. The upgraded rooms look bigger (I know they’re the same size) I remember the last time we stayed there I made sure we wore our shoes, the carpets were filthy. Now they can sweep and mop and it’ll be good! So excited to stay there again!

  • thanks for thephotos, been almost a decade since I stayed at pop and I stopped since staying there as it was in rough shape.
