A Pictorial Tour of Disney's Pop Century Resort
Famous Puzzle, Potato Go "Pop"
The ever-popular Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head strike familiar poses in front of a four-story Rubik's Cube at Disney's Pop Century Resort, the newest value-category hotel at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
You Say Potato, I Say "Cheese"
Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head, two toy icons that are part of pop culture, serve as a smiling photo backdrop for many "real" smiles at Disney's Pop Century Resort. The famous toys are just two of the larger-than-life icons at Disney's newest value-category resort. Rooms at Disney's Pop Century Resort begin at $77 based on season. The new hotel showcases pop culture of the 20th century.
Walking The (Big) Dog
Colorful Duncan Yo-Yos, popular toys of the 1960s, loom large at Disney's Pop Century Resort
A giant tabletop jukebox anchors a 1950s lodge building as giant sock-hoppers be-bop on the hotel's exterior at Disney's Pop Century Resort. WDW's newest value-category hotel pays tribute to the popular toys, dances, catch phrases and fads through the decades with lodge buildings anchored by four-story icons including a laptop computer from the 1990s, a Sony Walkman from the 1980s, a Mickey Mouse telephone from the 1970s and Duncan Yo-Yos from the 1960s. Reservations are now being accepted for the 2,880-room hotel, which opens Dec. 14, 2003. When complete, Disney's Pop Century Resort also will feature a series of lodge buildings paying tribute to the 1900s through the 1940s, bringing the hotel's guest room total to 5,760.
No, that giant jukebox isn't reflected on a shiny blue Formica tabletop from the 50s, it stands tall in front of one of the many pools at Disney's Pop Century Resort.
Play-Doh Pete, the artful child made famous on classic Play-Doh containers, joins a bright blue elephant and other larger-than-life Play-Doh creations at Disney's Pop Century Resort. The four-story Play-Doh container anchors the 1960s section of the hotel, while peace signs, Duncan Yo-Yos, retro-flowers and tie-dyed colors adorn the exterior of the 1960s lodge buildings. Sharp-eyed guests can spot "thumbprints" on the Play-Doh elephant's ears, designed to look like a child molded the colorful pachyderm.
