My picture threads consist of images I have taken that focus on the architecture, landscape architecture, planning, design, and theming of the facilities highlighted. They may also contain short descriptions and commentary, but will not focus on construction progress or special events or memorabilia or food selections or my traveling companions. Hopefully these threads are a good introduction for those who have not seen these places yet. All killer, no filler!
Disney's Pop Century Resort photographed in November 2008:
This resort focusing on popular culture is similar to the three All-Star Resorts in another area of the Disney property. It is composed of a central check-in and amenity building surrounded by 10 low rise three-winged hotel buildings that are all identical in layout to the others as well as the All-Star Resort hotel buildings. All feature fun oversized iconic elements that decorate their facades and create a bright and brash abstract environment.
The central hall is decorated with giant elements that announce the themes of the hotel buildings...the later decades of the 20th century.
These three buildings cluster around the Bowling Pool.
These two buildings face each other across the Hippy Dippy Pool.
80's and 90's:
The two 80's buildings and the adjoining 90's building surround the Computer Pool.
