We stayed at the Disney Pop Century Resort in 2005 with my son and his family. We wanted to stay on the Disney properties for the convenience. When we arrived at the Resort we checked in at the front desk. The resort is well staffed so you won't have to wait long to check in. We gave them our information and we received two lanyards and Disney cards with our names and Id numbers on it. When we vistied the parks and made purchases or made purchases in the resort, all we had to do was give them this card and it would be charged to our room. At the end of the trip we settled our account before leaving. This was so convenient because you really don't have to worry about carrying alot of money. You also don't have to carry your purchases around during the visit either. They find out what resort you are staying at and they send your purchases to the resort for you. At the end of the day you go and pick them up from the gift shop area. The hotel room was perfect (see picture for layout). When we were ready to go to the parks we lined up in the designated areas in front of the hotel. The buses come to the resort and then drop you off at the park. Make sure you get in the right line for each park. When you are ready to return to your resort follow the same proceedure. This was fantastic to have transportation from the hotel to the parks. You don't have to rent a car and find parking each day. The amenities of the hotel are awesome. They have a food area with reasonable prices, gift shop, game room and on site babysitting service available. We especially loved the pool area. There is a separate wading pool area for the little ones. The hotel ranks number one for our family. Great price, convenient and fun! We will be staying there on our next trip in 2008.
