    We will be staying at Pop Century soon for the first time. Looking for any tips and suggestions, Is there a unique food/snack item? What’s a good location for room? Share your stories!

    Haven’t been in a while… we get whatever room location cause we always rent a vehicle so it doesn’t matter where we are…

    I’m not sure what all the unique food items are but I do know that they have a tie-dyed cheesecake.
    We like to stay in the 50’s section. It seems to be the closest to Classic Hall and the bus stops without paying the preferred prices, which is mostly the 60’s section.
    We’ve stayed there numerous times and always enjoyed it, hope you will too!

    50’s is my favorite. For one thing, I love the 50’s ;) but as @Nascfan said, you’re so well located. Close to the pool, Classic Hall (lobby area, food, gift shop, soda fountain) as well as the bus stop and Skyliner. We were a 5 minute walk from everything.

    I will have to try the tie-dyed cheesecake!

    I’ve requested the 50’s section so hopefully we get it.

    Are there any fun things to do there? I’ve heard about secret menus at ASM, anything like that?

    We were in the 80s and didn’t mind any of the walks. The grounds are so much fun!

    I’m not sure about secret menus. Those may be limited at this time. I know they have rented surrey bikes for a nice trip around Hourglass Lake in the past. my wife and I did that one trip. It was a lot of fun and a nice time, something away from the parks. But those are also probably on hiatus due to COVID restrictions. So much has been put on hold. :(

    Yeah, so much is on hold right now. I can’t wait for it to get back to normal…..

    We are sure to have fun on our trip in a couple weeks but I’m a little concerned about what will be open and what we will be able to do. The whole ‘park reservation’ thing is a bit daunting.

    Anyway, we are looking forward to checking out the POP! Should be a blast :cool:

    They do sell the Dole Whips there now.
    We’ve stayed in 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. We all love Pop. It’s almost become a tradition for us to stay there.
    None of these were a long walk for us. If I had to choose, I would choose the 60’s or 70’s again. In 60’s we were right next to the pool and just behind Classic Hall. Great location. The 70’s would be my second choice because we had a room close to the bus stops and it was an easy walk to and from there.

    We will either be staying here or at Poly in March depending on if we use DVC or not (my in-laws are DVC members). I’m glad to hear these tips as well!

    Definitely try the tie dye cheesecake. I saw that they made the portion a lot smaller by putting it into one of those generic little round cake cups like you get at the quick service places and that’s disappointing. It used to be a big slice and it was much more appetizing to look at. Nothing about those little round things makes you want to buy them. We stayed in the 60’s section facing the pool and I wouldn’t do that again. We could hear the music inside our room. I like a bit more peace than that.
