Talking POP CenturyTransportation

Hello
It has been 2 years since we visited DW, is POP still on its own bus transportation to and from the parks or do they share with AOA.


Thank you

Pop does not share and I find Pop's bus service to be excellent.

Thank you.. This is one of the main reasons we like staying at POP, their park transportation.

We were just there in the fall and they had their own buses. Although I found wait times and crowds seemed to negate any benefit that had over other resorts who share buses.

Don't have to share is great. But don't forget Pop bus stop usually is towards the end of the bus stop,waiting areas. But the waits usually weren't to awfully bad.

I was just there in October and stayed at POP for the first time. Never again. While the buses don't share, I have never waited so long and had such crowded buses EVERY RIDE! And we are rope drop people. Even the buses an hour before park opening were standing room only. Once waited 35 minutes for a bus to Hollywood Studios. Lines everywhere. Not a good experience at all. We stayed at BW the previous year and shared buses with YC/BC/Swan/Dolphin and had a better experience.

We also stayed in October. 9th thru 13th. We thought the buses were excellent. NEVER waited more than 10 minutes and that's after arriving at the bus stop as the bus pulled away! So what if its crowded? Other people want to go to the parks also! If u don't want to stand, wait for the next one. No big deal! We thought the buses were great!

I also went in October and this was my experience as well.

Actually we had a few busses to ourselves during our 11 day POP stay.

Stayed there in September. Wife and I agree, never again. Very crowded buses; leaving the parks, we usually caught the AOA bus and walked over to Pop. For some reason, their waiting lines were not as long as Pop. In November, we went back to the All Star resorts.

Totally agree. Between the horrible bus service & the rude cast members at check in (including supervisors) and the insane food court we won't be back. Gave it 3 chances different times of the year but we're done with Pop too.

We've had great experiences at POP every time we've stayed. CM's at check in or for other needs were always better than expected.

Generally the buses were good. Rarely much of a wait. The exception is leaving MK or EP at closing time. The lines for a POP bus would stretch way back well into lines for other resorts. When this happened Disney would double or triple up on the buses for POP, 2 or 3 arriving to pick people up at the same time. But this only occurred after we had waited 15-20 minutes already. We learned and began leaving the park 15 minutes before closing and walked right on the bus.

We'll be back to POP in a few weeks. Can't wait.

We stayed there in last July for a few nights! We never had a long wait for a bus, and, they were rarely crowded too. We hope to stay at Pop again some time.
