Today, we’ve got a treat for y’all, and it won’t add a single calorie to your diet. We just think it’s super cool. But in order to get into it, we’ve gotta get into Pop Century Resort.
Okay, so you know we’re alllll about the food here at DFB, but sometimes, Disney does something that’s weird and fun and random…and we just want to tell you about it! That’s what happened when we stumbled upon the Pop Century Shop Stop kiosk.
You know Pop Century as the value resort of over-the-top PlayDoh jars and Big Wheels, plus, you know, some trend-worthy grub. Like the King Whoopie Pie.
Occasionally we stop eating sweets long enough to dig into savory eats, like a classic-ish Sloppy Joe. Because look at the size of those onion rings!
But Pop Century seems an appropriate place for a potential new trend, right? Enter: an ATM. Say what?
You know Disney can do an ATM. C’mon: Sprinkles dispenses cupcakes at Disney Springs via these magical machines, so why not other awesome stuff? We give you exhibit A: the Everything Pop Shop Stop!
That’s right, friends. It’s an ATM that dispenses cool stuff like autograph books, pins, Magic Bandits, and D-TECH gear! Step right up, and select a category!
To get a sneak peak of the goods inside, check out the display box on the top of the machine. There’s one autograph book option, featuring the Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy, and the ‘Munks! Plus there’s a pack of assorted MagicBandits (those fun bits that you can use to customize your MagicBand!).
You can also find pins — including a mystery pin pack! — and D-TECH gear — including Earbuds and SD-cards.
We aren’t sure if these 24-hour ATMs are popping up in any other resorts, but they’re super convenient. As of this visit, the Shop Stop only took cards and didn’t accept any discounts (AP, etc.). Of course, all of these items are also available in the Everything Pop gift shop during shop hours, but this is a fun option no matter what time of day you need it!
If you could stock your own Disney ATM, what goodies would you put in it? Play along with us in the comments!
