Walt Disney World’s Pop Century Resort

 

Hello!  My name is Loretta Garcia and I am the Travel Writer for Center of Magic (formerly Diclajia’s Disney Dreams). As a Travel Writer, I spend hours and hours visiting the Disney and travel sites on the web.  As I research and review the various resorts, I thought I would put together a short little info page for each resort.  As Pop Century is one of the all time favorites and the resort I will be staying at on my next visit, I thought I would start there.
