Disney's Pop Century Resort Orlando

This was our first trip to a Disney Resort and overall it was pretty good. The room was a bite small and we never seemed to have enough towels for three people. One thing is for sure internet is$9.99 for 24hrs which I find pretty expensive and disappointing. You would think internet would be free but that's not what I went to a Disney resort for so it wasn't a big issue.
We stayed in the 70s building which was a little walk to everything but not too bad. Unfortunately we had very bad neighbors who let their door slam shut constantly including late into the evening. The beds weren't very comfortable but we were up pretty early and in late.
The food in the cafeteria wasn't that great as we prefer to eat on the healthier sides. We also had the dining plan and the children's choices were limited to hamburger, hot dogs, chicken nuggets and pizzem things my son is not really into eating a lot.
It was pretty cold while at we were there but we did try out the pool one evening. It was heated but not very warm. Also either smoking was allowed by the pool or the smoking area was close by as we smelled smoke the whole time trying to enjoy the pool. Make sure you take your towels down with you as there are none pool side.
One thing my family really enjoyed was the arcade. The staff there is super friendly and they went out of their way for my son to enjoy his time there. The games weren't too expensive and we had funny playing their variety. The only issue we had was that one of the pinball machines had a flipper that did not work and the other wasn't that much fun.
The shuttles to Disney came pretty frequently and most of the rides were pretty short. Check-in was super fast but we did a pre-check-in online and then were able to basically walk-up and get our keys.
