I love staying in the 50's - preferable building 1 or 3 (building 2 is the farthest away from Classic Hall and is a long walk). I staying in the 90's once and didn't like it so much. Have a great time! Pop Century is so much fun!
We requested a room in the 70's building our last visit. It was the building with the mickey phone in front. We also asked to be closer to hour glass lake. That was a good decision, it was so quiet back there, and not too far from the action We might ask to stay in the bldg with the big wheel in front of it next time (I think 70's) though because we always found ourselves going that way as a short cut to and from the bus stations!
We have never had a bad room experience - and just 2 times out of 5 I was in the eighties once and nineties once - quiet rooms but a long walk that also included cutting through the parking lot. 70's building is my favorite behind the big wheel.
The first time we stayed Disney put us in the 5000 (60's building) it was facing the lake so it was nice and quiet, we like it so much we requested it our 2nd trip and we will request it again the next time we are there we just love how close it is to the main building and the pool.
If you're only going for a standard room price (totally understand that!) then the only section I really think you should avoid is the 90s. Personally, I would not want to stay there. It's away from everything. If you want fairly nice access to the buses, Century Hall, and some sort of pool, either the 50s, 60s, or 70s is your best bet. All three areas have preferred and standard room locations. The standard rooms will tend to be on the side of the building away from the pools and main building. I'd suggest looking at a map of the property. Then call Disney and request the area you'd like. They won't guarantee anything, but it's been my experience (6 visits) that they always try to be accommodating.
When we first went to Pop I requested preferred room to be close to Hall, but found that it was not a far walk from the other buildings. So have not requested preferred anymore. We have been in most of the buildings and they all have been just fine. Would not waste money asking for prefered
Love the Magic of Disney Thanks Dad for our first 5 trips.
We have stayed there the last two years and have gotten the buildings closest to the lake and found it to be to far away from everything and who want's t walk from the bus stop after a long day at the parks...So this years trip we booked Port Orleans and went with a garden view hoping location is better
I've stayed at Pop a few times. If you are looking for a good night's sleep I would advise a room in the 70s facing the courtyard, it almost feels like a different resort. I had a nightmare week with a "pool view" in the 90s--teenagers were in the pool till all hours making tons of noise!
