Disney’s Pop Century Resort is a hip, hop, and happening resort that celebrates 20th century pop culture. The resort opened on December 14, 2003 and has been astonishing guests with larger than life icons from the five decades between the 1950’s and 1990’s.
Now if you know your decades from your centuries you’re probably thinking: what about the other half? Disney originally planned for Pop Century to encompass the full century, and work had begun on additional buildings and a second phase to cover the first half of the 20th century which was going to be called the Legendary Years.
Unfortunately, a slump in tourism after the events of September 11 caused construction to come to a halt, leaving us with the second century only, the Classic Years. Through construction was never completed, you can still see the two partially completed buildings. Taking it’s place you will find the Art of Animation Resort.
