  1. To be fair, many moderate resorts also have many hotel rooms….

    Animal Kingdom Lodge: 1,307 Caribbean Beach: 1,536
    Swan and Dolphin: 2,270
    Coronado Springs: 2,384

    And while yes, there aren’t as many amenities at Pop as there are are a resort like the Contemporary, the people staying at a value resort are used to regular, not deluxe accommodations. The rooms are actually the same size that you would find in any value hotel anywhere else in the U.S. Plus the theming is sooo fun for the kids at value hotels! Don’t knock them; they are really great and still magical- it’s Disney World after all!

  2. On a recent week long trip to WDW back in October, my husband and I decided on Pop Century Resort for the convenience of the Skyliner (Loved It!!!) and the value to stay on property with the perk of early entry to the parks! We spent two days at Epcot and a day at Hollywood Studios which meant three days we could ride the Skyliner to our resort! The Skyliner was clean, well operated, and a nice ride at the end of long days in the parks. I certainly do not feel cheated out of more amenities for staying there. Our room was a spacious room with a dining table and very comfortable bed for sleeping, nice bathroom (I enjoyed the shower caddy with the H2O products!) and TV! The only neighbor noises we heard were from folks walking past our door, otherwise, it was a quiet resort. I would recommend Pop Century Resort to anyone! The cost of a WDW vacation is so expensive, I felt we made a great choice of a value resort for ourselves and made the best of our time going to the parks!

  3. I agree with Rebecca. The Value Resorts are ‘fun’ for kids. As Passholders we visited many of the resorts several times a year and with our 4 children as they grew up. That’s the point here. DFB did a good job in comparisons. Basically if your looking to save ‘a little ‘ money and are accustomed to average hotel room sizes, then don’t pass up these resorts. Our kids absolutely loved these resorts when they were young. As they grew we moved on to moderates.

  4. It is true value resorts are crowded, noisier BUT I travel by myself(disabled senior person, and I use a scooter to get around. I LOVE POP centuray because of that the staff I find are more helpful and the other guests are not snobs

  5. The other item missing from the value resorts, that we discovered 2 weeks ago, is they don’t have hot tubs at the pool. After walking 10 to 13 miles a day… we rely on a hot tub to relax those muscles!

  6. We have found that POP is the best of the Value resorts. They do not share the bus system with any other resort. We only use the resort for sleeping and showering. We tend to stay at the parks all day, even when we come as a family of nine. We are able to share adjoining rooms with a pack and play. We also have access to Shades of Green, military hotel, but find Pop a better value. However, that has now changed with the money-grubbing big wigs at Disney. We will now reconsider Shades or staying off property, if we return. There does not appear any reason to stay on property. Loss of the benefits of staying on property, and the money grabs now make it hard to choose a Disney vacation. Might have to consider the cruise line a better choice for a Disney vacation.
