    I recently had my first experience with the new rooms at Pop Century.

    After seeing pictures and reading reports from Guests,I still wasn't sure if I would get the "I am in a Hospital room" feeling upon experiencing them firsthand.

    I did.:)

    My room felt so "sterile"-I kept expecting a Nurse to walk in at any moment and start an IV!!!!lol:)

    The improvements in the new rooms are amazing:

    LARGE TVs
    Murphy bed
    "Rain Shower"
    2 "Barn Doors"
    LOTS of storage space
    "Electronic" safe
    Coffeemaker
    LOTS of USB ports
    AWESOME mattresses and pillows
    Awesome sink and sink area
    Cool "make up mirror"
    Shower doors

    Disney,the only problem with these amazing new rooms you have put together is that you've got me walking past a FOUR STORY BIG WHEEL and then into a room almost completely devoid of "color" and "Disney theming".

    The new rooms don't "fit in" with the over-the-top Disney theming of the Resort.

    The Value Resorts are ABOUT over-the-top Disney theming.

    Well,after my trip,at least I have now met my deductible for this year.:)

    LOL! I thought you were to tell us about an injury you got at Pop.

    My husband had a bad one there in 2009. My son shot a snake-in-a-can at him and the metal wire inside the snake tore hubby’s cornea. Not fun!

    But the new Pop room sounds nice if not exactly whimsical. :)

    Yes, this trend towards de-theming the rooms as each resort is refurbished, is the main reason why more of my stays are now offsite. If it's going to look like a Holiday Inn anyway, why pay so much more to stay onsite for theming that isn't there.

    Excellent. The more people that hate the nrnew refurbished rooms, the better chance I have of finding available rooms whenever my family chooses to go.

    I'm only laughing so hard because I totally agree they look like hospital rooms!

    I love the new rooms! The Mickeys over the bed and Pluto in the murphy are just adorable! I think they're a lot more fun than the old rooms. IMO the old rooms had zero personality.

    So far the only refurbished rooms I've felt were generic are the ones at CSR. They did a great job at Pop and YC.

    I think if they painted one wall an accent color, it would help a lot

    I'm happy for the positive improvements but I'm not thrilled about the modern/all white look. I think it's great they finally have coffee makers and queen beds instead of fulls, it's about time!!

    I really loved the new rooms, vast improvement. Prior to last 10 day stay I’ve only had 1 night stays before transferring to another resort.
    I do agree the room could have more pizzazz. I think it’s the plain white beds that make it look like a hospital room. Bringing back bed runners and a throw pillow would go a long way for room decor. I’m not looking for over the top theming, I get enough of that in the parks and resort grounds. I love the Mickey over the bed. But the hospital looking plain white bed, ugh.

    Nicer than the hospital rooms my family has been in over the last few years. Nothing was white and bright. Beige and brown is more like it.

    From the pics I've seen, the remodeled rooms at Pop, Coronado and Yacht Club all look the same! Plain white bedding, laminate flooring. I know they are starting on POR soon, I wonder if they will suck all the charm and theming out of those rooms too? :(

    Seriously Disney, it's possible to update things without taking away all the charm that makes each resort unique!

    To us it is like 2 different rooms in one. If you look at the wall with the beds, it's definitely Disney. But then if you look at the other walls its just bland. All they had to do was bring a little bit of that character to the other walls, and they could have did so much more with the boring bathroom doors. For a place that have "imagineers" they are not very imaginative with their room designs.
