I was recently in Orlando for a conference. Since Disney World is my favorite vacation spot ever I thought I'd spend a few days on my own at DisneyWorld after the conference. Since it's just me I didn't need anything fancy I thought I'd do a value resort. I stayed at one of the All Stars before so i thought I could give Pop Century a try. I regret it. Very much so. Check in was a crazy long line. Even with online check in it was close to 5 before I got my room. The grounds were nice and well themed, a little tacky but in a cute way. I was in the 50s area near the bowling pin pool. It's a nice pool btw, I enjoyed it. But the room...it smelled musty, the bed was not comfortable, and it was so noisy. So very noisy. I have stayed at the All Stars before so I know it's a magnet for teams and big groups. But Pop Century is particularly noisy. And the baseball team that stayed in my area shouldve had more respect for other guests. After midnight I expect people stop partying and to shut it down and it's a shame the grown ups in charge of them didn't do that. But Disney should have put a stop to it . And the worst was the transportation. Luckily I had a rental and only used the buses twice. It is ridiculously long wait for buses for this resort. I went to Magic Kingdom until close and watched other resorts have two buses show up at one time for them but the Pop Century bus line was 5 rows deep and not only did we wait longer than any other resort for our buses, we had to wait for 3 buses before being able to get on and get to the resort. When you have to get up early to catch a flight getting back to the hotel 2hrs after you leave the park is a little excessive. I think from now on if I stay on Disney property it's going to at a Moderate or higher because this was not magical.
