Take a spin back in time at Disney’s Pop Century Resort where guests of all ages can groove to pop culture from the past. And they can do it all at Disney’s value-category rates. Larger-than-life icons of 20th century popular culture are found all over the sprawling resort property -- four-story Rubik’s Cubes and Duncan Yo-Yos, 65-foot-tall bowling pins and 55-foot cellular phones, to name a few. Individual lodge buildings pay tribute to popular culture from each decade.
