so, can you request to stay in specifc places? Are they broken up by genre? Sounds SO cute!!! Are the rooms decorated to go with the year you staying in or are they all the same?
You can ask, and if a room is available the CM's will move you. As far as I know, the rooms are all the same as far as decor goes. Maybe that picture they have hanging up is different, I can't reacall. The oustide theming is different. There are big "objects" from each eara (cell phone, rubiks cube, etc) and various sayings across the top of each building.

Yea it's basically a couple pictures that distinguish the rooms from one another. They all have the same comforter and curtains and what not. It's most the outside with the giant objects that makes it each decade.
you can request a certain location when you make your reservations. All the rooms are exactly the same on the inside except for the pictures which go along with the decade you're staying in. The outsides are themed however. The 80's has large rubix cubes, the 70's has large 8 track tapes, the 90's cell phones, etc...
There isn't really a place I could recommend, we never found the walk too much to spend the extra money on a preferred room. Let me do some searching and if I can find a map of the property I'll post it for you.

Reason: added map
ragrobyn---do you suggest staying in the 70's? We're looking to be close to the buses and semi close to the food area.
I do recomend the 70's building. Close to everything, yet far enough away from the pools to be quiet. With your wish list, I would say the 70's are for you. We stayed in the Big Wheel building. That is the one closest to the buses.
It's fully functioning as designed, it just won't go below around 73 degrees or something which to me is too warm. It says that its going lower, but it really doesn't. It's not so hot you're sweating, but it isn't as comfortable as I liked.
Try Living in florida, it gets warm here. hence the name rainy... oh wait, that's just hurricane season. where is the general nickname... oh here it is... sunshine state. IT GETS WARM IN FLORIDA, one reason it is not crowded in florida during the summer, dang northern tourists, gettin' too hot for them... i love ya!
we stayed at pop century once in the 50's section and for a hotel it was nice. but I got the feeling I was staying at an old howard johnson or one of those motor lodges. We had three people with us and the room was cramped. but that was just me. If I were staying for a couple of nights, I would stay at a value resort more than that I would stay at a moderate.
I just booked Pop Century for the first week in March. It will be my first time in anything but a deluxe :o
Lowest I've stayed in is Shades of Green, which is probably a respectable moderate.
So we'll see what its like. I travel for business a ton, so I have some relative experience. At only $119/night for the 'preferred room' which means closest buildings to pool/lobby its not that bad a price. It's only 3 nights
nope. Not really wanting to stay there. See, we're not looking for luxury or anything like that. Me and my husband are big kids. We want color, themes, fun stuff. That's why the value resorts really fit us. I wouldn't mind spending a little more if we wanted luxury or something...but, the Value resorts just look like such fun!
I would really consider Shades of Green! It's very convient and a very respectable setup. It is not disney-ish everywhere, but compariable to a nice Marriott, Hilton, Holiday Inn Select. I think we paid $109/night last year.
If you don't stay there, at least buy your park tickets from the military rates. You can buy them right there in the hotel.
