Thanks! Are you staying there soon? If so, I'm jealous! It was great - but hopefully you get a cleaner room!

Thanks! I've always been curious about the difference between Value and Deluxe. I realize some people love the Values including Pop, but I wanted to share my photos and observations.

A squeak more about the Pop Century beds

I told DSis that I didn't understand why she had a problem with her bed. Mine was adjustable. She asked, "Really. They're adjustable?". I said "yeah, one side is firm and the other side is soft. I just roll between the two." And she still believed me until she asked which side of my bed was soft and turns out it was the opposite of her bed!. Nope just too much use on the bed-stand sides of the beds.

Thanks for your comment. Please keep in mind it was a business trip and not a vacation so a good night's sleep was really paramount. I have to hand it to Pop Century though - it was definitely cleaner - and that means a lot too.

Glad there are others out there like us! Too funny. Well at least we tried it.

We stayed at Wilderness Lodge last December for DSis birthday - that was beautiful at Christmas time and it was cold enough in Orlando to really appreciate the fire places.

Thanks for your comment.

LOL! Thanks for the laugh and glad you got some rest!

I do love POP Century but I did think the beds were rather firm - but I was able to sleep and had a quiet spot in the 90's.

At least you know you like the Yacht Club now - !

#6. Pop is the sound of your credit card falling out of your wallet as you book an upgrade in the middle of the night.

#7. Pop is your neck cracking back into shape after laying on the bed.

#8. Pop is your elbow to your roommate's gut as you fight over space at the sink.

#9. Pop is the sound of wheelie bags and suitcases dragged against the concrete halls.

#10. Pop is...
now your turn
Question:

Did you know what to expect when going in or just winged it? Yes POP is way different than the YC but anyone would know that if they did their research. If I pay the price for POP I would know what to expect. We have stayed at POP before and didn't experience such a night. And you can get several things that you mentioned at any resort even the YC.

Great. We'll be staying at YC next month, and now I'll probably spend the whole time looking for hair (and hopefully not finding any ).

I stand corrected, thanks. I was just a little confused because your Dsis woke you up and not the "all night long" noise outside. At least you can say you tried it and know it is not for you, that is why Disney has done such a great job with different types of resorts

Last summer we stayed at POP before we moved to SSR and I thought the towels seemed thinner at POP as well. Glad Im not the only person to think this.
