Decor at Disney’s Pop Century, continued!

As a follow on to yesterday’s post about the Pop Century Resort, here’s some framed art from inside one of the rooms – lots of red going on here!

It’s supposed to represent Disney stuff from the 70s. In the upper left corner, I do believe that’s Pete’s Dragon, but I don’t know who the little red robot dude is that seems to be climbing him.

I love the red Mickey ears beanie! Wish I could get my hands on some of those today. Seems to be more of a hat (see the brim?) than a beanie, actually.

Robin Hood was portrayed as a fox; he’s a Disney character in red that I’ve missed in the past, as is King Richard, seen here wrapped in a royal red cape (by the way, voiced by Peter Ustinov!).

I’m not really sure what any of the other stuff is. During most of the 70s, I was in a period of Disney latency, as back then it was not cool to be a Disney fan throughout your teens. I didn’t remember until a friend decided she was going to Disney World on vacation with her boyfriend and asked what she should bring back for me. I said, “Tinker Bell!” of course!

Disney’s POP Century Resort

For the Monday Meme Trifecta this week, we start with the word “pop” as a prompt, and add a little yellow and a little blue. That’s how we play all three memes at the same time!

IMG_3165-WDW-Pop-Century-signHere’s the entrance to Disney’s POP Century resort in Orlando, Florida. This is one of Walt Disney World’s “value” resorts – the least expensive of the Disney resorts. The Pop Century resort is themed in sections that represent the decades of the 20th century. The entire resort is decorated in colorful representations of the popular culture of the times, represented in music, art, film and even the dominant news items of the times. I’ve stayed there twice – once in the 1950s section, and once in the 1970s section. These photos are from the 1970s visit.


Here’s a shot of one of the standard rooms at the Pop Century resort. As you can see, the decor is dominated by color, with blue and yellow both well represented in both the quilts on the beds as well as in the border up near the ceiling.


And look – there’s even a “Hidden Mickey” in the decorative border! 😉
