The Pop Century is my favourite of the Disney value resorts. The shadow boxes of vintage novelties and the retro décor definitely give it a level of class that sets it apart from the others. They seemed to tone down the usual sugary-neon pop of the All-Star resorts, although they do stick with the large displays outdoors. But this is Disney, the happiest place on earth - vibrant colours and larger-than-life themes are all part of the experience. The kids are visibly thrilled when they see the giant Rubix cubes and roller skates outside. All other ages can be seen pointing excitedly at the posters and memorabilia, enjoying a cheery trip down memory lane.

Disney usually does it right, that's why they are the official leaders in creating magic moments. Pop Century Resort is like all of Disney's lower budget hotels. It's located on Disney's ridiculously large plot of land, there is a free bus service to and from the parks, saving $15 on parking daily, the rooms are decent, and the basics of what you may need are provided while on vacation.
There are no frills and it's by no means luxury, but Disney's no extra's is still pretty cool. Giant statues and figurings are set around the property, like 40ft Rubik's cubes, a titanic Mr. and Mrs. Potato head, and a Mickey phone that's the size of small condominium.
Like everything with the Walt Disney World Resort, Pop Century is family friendly and has great customer service.

The only reason I can justify staying here is if your kids are addicted to neon plastic and sugar, and you are on a budget with an attention deficit, so need to be as close to the Disney theme parks as you can while paying the least amount possible. The rooms are tiny and minimalist, reminding me of campground resorts. There are no suites or upgrades. There is also no wifi. So, as an adult, your only solace from ear-deafening pop beats, screaming kids and Rubix Cubes the size of bulldozers is the Petals pool bar. And guess what, it's painted in neon flowers and sits in a major pathway between the lobby and pool. Someone please just put me out of my misery now! Seriously, this is not a value in any sense of the word. Look just outside the borders of the Magic Kingdom and you'll find much more for less...

Great "theme"-ing of thr grounds. Rooms adequate size for a family with 2 adults and 2 small kids. (But who spends much time in the room when you're at WDW, anyway?) Good value when WDW transportation to the various parks and extra early/late hours in the parks for resort guests are factored in.

I'm going to group my review of Disney's value resorts together. I categorize them exactly the same.
If you want tons of theming at minimal price with excellent value then I would suggest Disney's Pop Century or Disney's All Stars Resorts.
The oversized whimsical tributes to pop culture, movies, sports or music makes kids eyes light up. Their pools are plentiful and fun, the food courts can be beat anywhere else, gift shops serve your souvenir needs and there are game rooms. The main pools have pool bars too.
If I do not stay at these resorts, my only reasons are 1) location: I prefer something a little closer to the parks. These resorts are some of the farthest out. 2) If I'm with adults I prefer less noise. These resorts tend to have thinner walls and a little less square footage. 3) If I have more money to spend I'll stay at something that suits # 1 and #2 as previously mentioned.
But, I think these truly are the best value on property and can't be beat in the Orlando area for the money.
