Disney’s Pop Century Resort is currently going through a major room refurbishment. Be prepared for a total redesign of the rooms that is completely different from the standard Value Resort room set up that everyone has become used to.
We have pictures from 3 different refurbished rooms from building 8 at Pop Century. A huge thank you to Stacie Meyer who has let us share her photos with you! At the bottom of the article I’ve also included photos of the rooms after they were completed with decor.
From these pictures you can see that carpeting is a thing of the past replaced by laminate floors.
Another major change is the bed configuration. A standard room will now have a Queen sized bed with a pull-down full sized bed similar to those at Art of Animation.
This photo shows the chest of drawers, chairs for the table when the Murphey bed is put away, and the glass front fridge. Caffeine addicts will rejoice to know that I am also hearing rumors of coffee-makers in the rooms as well.
Here is a photo of a King bed room. It looks like these will not have a pull-down Murphy bed. Although the decor is not complete, the pop-art Mickey hanging above the bed hints at a more modern design.
From the punch sheet we can see the bathroom configuration. I am assuming that is where the closet will be located. It also looks like the shower will have sliding doors. The bathroom itself will possibly have a pocket door which will make it feel like a larger space.
Work began on the rooms March of this year and currently the focus is on the 80s/90s section of the resort. The refurbishment schedule I have seen shows that it’s taking 20 days to complete each room. I would guess that they are working south to north and ending in the 50s building. The refurbishment is scheduled to be complete in May of 2018 but I would assume guests will start being able to stay in some of the completed rooms starting this summer with some Preferred rooms having availability this Fall. Remember that until this refurbishment is fully complete only requests can be made to stay in a newly refurbished room.
Anyone concerned about noise during this room refurbishment shouldn’t be too concerned. Work is being done from 9 am until sunset and is confined to specific buildings. You can request a room away from the refurbishment if you are worried.
