We stayed at Pop Century 7 nights, 8/20 to 8/27. "We" are myself, my husband, our 14 year-old son, and his 13 year-old cousin. A life-long friend of mine joined us with her husband and their 17 year-old son. We were on the Free Dining plan. My younger, single brother also joined us for the first 2 nights of the trip and then again for the last day. I linked our reservation to my friend's and requested to be in Building 6, 4th floor, facing the lake. We were placed exactly where I requested in adjoining rooms. This made it the third year in a row that Pop placed us where we asked to be. Our rooms were brand new, and we loved them. The new carpeting is really nice and the privacy curtain was a boon for my friend and me since we were both in rooms with lots of males. The flat panel TV was larger than I expected, and while the drawers are smaller now, we had no problem managing our stuff with them. The food court was great as always, and they did change a few menu items. The reuben flatbread is now available only when it's a daily special. The beef-and-bleu sandwich we enjoyed at POR in 2008 is now on the menu at Pop. The best thing they added is an apple blossom sundae. It's the apple crisp recipe served at Columbia Harbor House topped with ice cream (plus whipped cream and a cherry if you ask ). I bought one of the Mickey beach towels that you need to spend $25 to be able to purchase for $10.95. It washes nicely and now I wish I got a second one. It's a very nice towel and the way my son misplaces them, I could use an extra. They are also offering a luggage set purchase-with-purchase. It's red and has a small pilot case and cosmetic case. If my son were in the 3 to 6 age range, I would have bought it, but it's too small to be of use for us now. The gift shop is selling a T-shirt with Mickey and "Walt Disney World" on it for $15 in many different colors. I got a lime green one and am quite impressed with the thickness and softness of the cotton fabric for the price. You could do most of your souvenir shopping in Everything Pop since they have a great selection. Housekeeping was O.K., but not great like it was on our previous trips. For some reason, we got a bunch of towel animals, but our friends got none. We had fun busting them about that. The shower curtain liner in our bathroom was torn and the toilet seat joints weren't properly sealed since the epoxy was showing. We had to ask every day for extra towels. My friend and I LOVED the mango mojitos at Petals. We did encounter one jerk of a bartender one night. DH asked him for a Bud Lite with Lime and the guy gave him a regular Bud Lite with a slice of lime. DH didn't complain and just drank it. Later on, we had a hard time getting his attention while he was watching TV. However, there is a lady named Dee who works there who is a doll and gave us great service this year and last. We found that if you talk on the bridge, the lake turtles and big fish hear you and swim up to where you are standing. I guess people are feeding them so when they hear human voices, they come looking for a snack. The turtles are really cool! They are quite large and kids love to see them. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and think Pop is the best WDW resort for us. It has everything we require in a Disney resort and for an excellent price.
