The Complete Guide to Eating at Disney’s Pop Century Resort

Disney’s Pop Century Resort is all about pop culture through the decades, which is why you’ll find things like ginormous versions of a Rubik’s Cube, Mickey telephone, yo-yo, jukebox, and more!

POP Century!

It’s also on the Skyliner, which means it’s super convenient for getting to other Skyliner resorts, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and EPCOT. So a LOT of guests choose to stay there — if you’re one of them, though, you might need to know more about the most IMPORTANT THING — where and what to eat!

That’s why we’ve put together this ultimate guide to ALL your dining options at Pop Century. Plus we’ll include some of our favorite eats, just in case you don’t know what to order at each location. So let’s get to it!

Everything Pop!

Okay, so Pop Century’s main food court is both a food court AND a store, so you can shop and eat all in the same spot. Honestly, it’s kind of brilliant on Disney’s part to put it all there in one location. This is a counter-service location that’s open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and most of what’s available here is standard American food court fare. Also, note that you can use Mobile Order here!

This is a HUGE food court, so if you don’t feel like traipsing all the way back to your room with your food, there’s plenty of seating. You’ll also find fountain soda drinks here, AND this is where you can grab that Refillable Mug that lets you get unlimited sodas, coffee, tea, etc. at any of the Disney resorts.

For breakfast, this is where you’ll get your Mickey waffles (and yes, you CANNOT be in Disney World and not have Mickey waffles for at least one breakfast — it’s a rule!😉). You can also order things like omelets, breakfast sandwiches, pastries, bacon, overnight oats, and more. It’s a typical counter-service breakfast, but you’re sure to find enough food to satisfy picky eaters and get fueled up for a day in the parks.

Lunch and dinner bring some burgers to the table (literally). In addition to the classic Disney burger, you can also grab something a little more unique, like the POP’ing Pimento Burger, which is a Grilled Signature-blend Burger topped with Bacon, Pimento Cheese, Lettuce, and Tomato on a Toasted Brioche Bun served with French Fries. Also, we’ll admit that we’re BIG fans of Disney fries — don’t @ us. They’re a lot like McDonald’s fries and THAT’S A GOOD THING.

You’ll also find a few more surprising dishes like Shrimp and Grits, Seared Salmon, Buttermilk Chicken, and Braised Beef. Plus, you can try the 50th anniversary Walt Disney’s Favorite Chili in a Bread Boule (although we weren’t BIG fans of the chili).

You’ll also find Pizzas (and we see a lot of families ordering these), a few pasta dishes, salads, and other sandwiches. If it’s plant-based options you’re looking for, you’ll find a few! However, what this location is REALLY known for is a dessert – the Tie-Dye Cheesecake. Okay, so this treat looks kinda’ like colorful Play-Dough, but trust us, it’s creamy and tasty and a MUST if you’re dining here.

You’ll also find the 50th Anniversary Dessert here, which is a Raspberry Cheesecake with a Rose Gold Champagne-infused Glaze on an Almond Cookie. This is another treat you don’t want to miss out on!

Petals Pool Bar

Okay, we’re just going to say it — Petals Pool Bar at the Hippy Dippy Pool is one of our favorite bars in Disney World. First, the bartenders are AMAZING. They can whip up their own signature drinks without batting an eyelash. The drinks here, though, are the REAL stars.

This is where we want to order the Piña CoLAVA, which is like a classic piña colada, but it has one big difference — raspberry puree! This drink is available at pretty much EVERY Disney World pool bar, but somehow it just hits differently sitting in the GROOVY digs of the Hippy Dippy Pool.


If you want to keep that tropical feeling going, you might also want to get the Banana Cabana, which is made with Cruzan Mango Rum, Parrot Bay Coconut Rum, Bols Crème de Banana, and Orange and Pineapple Juice with a float of Grenadine. But any drink from here is going to be excellent, thanks to those awesome bartenders.

If you’re visiting during a holiday or special occasion, keep an eye out for signs at the bar for seasonal specialty drinks — those are also almost ALWAYS worth ordering. We’ve had some great holiday and Valentine’s Day drinks here!

You’ll also find some beers, wines, and non-alcoholic smoothies at Petals.

Other Dining Options

The beauty of staying at Pop Century is that you’re just a Skyliner ride away from other resorts’ dining options, too. Want to have a character breakfast at Topolino’s Terrace? Just hop on a gondola and glide on over to Disney’s Riviera Resort.

Want to check out a few restaurants at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort? Well, you’re just a Skyliner ride away from that, too. So although the dining options might seem limited at Pop Century, you actually have MANY more available thanks to Disney’s newest transportation system.
