PHOTOS - New look guest rooms at Disney's Pop Century Resort

Jun 14, 2017 in "Disney's Pop Century Resort"

The first of the new-look rooms at Disney's Pop Century Resort are now becoming available to guests.

@Lariael on reddit posted these photos of the new room decor. You can see more of the photos at imgur.

The room features two queen size beds, with one setup as a fold-down Murphy bed, which serves as a 2 seater table when folded up.

Along with a brand new look, Disney also appears to have addressed the need to charge devices - with a total of 9 outlets and 10 USB ports in the room. Technology has also been stepped up with the TV being wall mounted to free up more space beneath.

Here is a reminder of what the original room pre-refurbishment look like.

Thanks! Confusing sometimes when there are multiple threads open for the same topic

Are there any updates to this refurb? I just booked a room for early April and want to request one of the refurbed rooms, of course. I'm sure there's just a couple of buildings still under refurbishment at this stage.

Thank you so much. Have a magical day:)

The rooms look nice for a value resort. They need one accent wall with color. Even if a soft/ pale color

I believe Disney has stated that the project runs through April 2018 (which is end/pay date on the Notice of Commencement). However, if they continue to work at the snail's pace that they've been moving along at for the last ~6 months, we'll be lucky if they're finished by the end of 2018. I believe work began in early March and there are currently 2 (out of 10) buildings refurbished and back in inventory. A third building was rumored to be opening last week, but that hasn't happened yet. A small portion of a fourth building has just started the refurb process. I don't think the Gondola construction will have any affect on the refurbishment.

We were just there. We had a preferred room, and were told that none of the preferred rooms had been renovated. I did not notice any construction in the 60s

Does anyone have a timeframe on when all the rooms will be finished? I know the permit runs out in December. Does anyone have any updates on the date for completion of the project? I'm not sure if the gondola construction slowed it down ...Thank you :)

Yes they do. Many people just go on vacation so they can be miserable in a better climate.

We're booked for POP this time next year. Can't wait. Loved POP the last two visits we stayed there. Only place I'll ask for upper floors looking north (lake side) so you can see a good portion of illuminations.

I like Pop Century also, my second fave hotel that I have BEEN to in WDW. My first: Dixie Landings. Oh how I miss that.

Thanks for the pictures. It looks outstanding. Well done, Disney. I might have to go back to the values...

You could also ask the nice housekeeping person that they keep your bed down or call the front desk and ask that they make note of it. There are plenty of options and having the option to put/keep the bed up to allow for more space will please many.

AndyS2992Aug 23, 2017

They are an indeed an option, I just assumed, for some reason, housekeeping would put the bed back up each day but thinking about it they probably wouldn't. Socks on carpet would still be more comfortable than socks on hard floor no?
