a few years ago i was traveling A LOT, and became quite enamored with boutique hotels. searching for the cutest place to stay is always first on my travel to-do list. i'm so thrifty you'd think i'd priceline lodging everywhere i roam, but at some point i realized that schtick beats penny pinching. i'd never stayed at a disney resort before, considering i went to college in orlando and always have friends' places to crash at, but this go-round it made the most sense to give one of their 'economy' options a whirl. when i saw photos of pop century resort online, i knew that's where i'd want to hang my (mickey) hat for a couple nights. though at 5,760(!) rooms it's definitely not a boutique hotel, it's got all the theme and gimmick of one. you can bet i woke up an extra half hour early one morning to wander through each area- 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, and ours, the 90s. (our window was just under the YOU GO GIRL and DA BOMB roof lettering. thank you for that.) i recommend it!
