Three years ago on our last family trip to the world, we stayed at the POP Century Resort. The resort is broken up in to the last 50 years of pop culture icons. We stayed in the 70's complex and it was very groovy.
The original plan for the resort was that there would also be a second "complex" that would include pop culture icons from the early 1900's. When we were there, you could see the buildings, but they were only marginally completed and there was a bit of construction debris and overgrown greenery. You could tell that it had been neglected for some time. Disney claimed that finances was the reason for the delay on the early years portion of POP but now, they are moving forward with a NEW plan for that property!
"Disney has announced that they will soon open a new 2,000 room resort themed around the history of Disney Animation. Disney’s “Art of Animation” resort will open by the end of 2012 and will feature 1120 family suites as well as 864 standard rooms all themed around such Disney animated classics as “Finding Nemo”, “Cars” and “The Lion King”. The location of the new resort will be adjacent to Disney’s Pop Century Resort.
