Everything Pop Dining and Shopping is the name of the food court and shopping area at Disney’s Pop Century Resort. Like the other value resorts at Disney, Pop Century has one large food court that offers a variety of dining options.
In this article, we’ll look at the different dining options available on the Everything Pop Dining side of things. Additionally, we’ll cover seating, grab-and-go items, and preview the beverage and condiments station.
It probably doesn’t get much more exciting than that. Does it? But if you have an upcoming visit planned to Pop Century, it’s nice to know in advance whether or not you can rely on enjoying a few meals at the resort.
The food court is located inside Classic Hall, the resort’s main lobby. When you walk through the entrance, dining will be to the right.
Or if coming from your room, there’s a separate entrance from the exterior. There are a few tables with chairs in the area.
Pop Century’s food court is open daily from 7:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Each station features a different type of cuisine.
There’s a separate station where you can pick up mobile orders. Pretty much everything inside the food court is available to order in the app.
If you decide not to mobile order, you’ll place your order at the station. Then you will check out afterward.
These were the items that were available on my last visit. This first station had Italian cuisine. The following items are on the menu:
- Chicken Parmesan
- Pasta with Meatballs
- Super Slice of Pepperoni Pizza or Cheese Pizza
- Large Pepporoni Pizza or Cheese Pizza
Kids’ Meals included:
- Chicken with Pasta and Vegetables
- Macaroni and Cheese
This station had standard American fare:
- Herb-roasted Turkey Dinner
- Roasted Salmon Dinner
- Pot Roast
- Walt Disney’s Favorite Chili in a Bread Bowl
And there were burgers:
- Bacon Cheddar Burger
- Cheddar Cheese Burger
- Signature Pimento Bacon Cheeseburger
- Impossible Market Burger (Vegan)
Kids’ meals include:
- Chicken Strips
- Turkey Sandwich
Everything Pop’s menu is basically the same one we saw at Landscape of Flavors at Art of Animation. Unfortunately, I’ve noticed the majority of these resort counter services are offering similar items lately.
Hopefully, we’ll see a better variety again at some point. But when I think about spending $3,000 or so to stay here for a week’s vacation, it’s disappointing that these are the only options available.
After all, there are over 2800 rooms at Pop Century, and it’s not uncommon for the resort to be completely booked. It’s no wonder so many guests order pizza or similar from off-property locations.
Anyway, after checking out, there are several beverage and condiment stations.
Joffrey’s coffee is available here, or you can make a cup in your room.
All of the usual condiments are available. I usually stop in and pick up a few things to keep in my room when we stay here. You never know when you might need an extra creamer or salt and pepper pack.
And if you need a microwave, a few are available in the dining room.
Rapid Fill mugs are available for $19.99. They are good for the length of your resort stay.
If your room is located near Everything Pop, or you plan to spend a good deal of time at the resort, a refillable mug is probably worth considering.

Below is a look at one of the dining rooms inside the food court. There are tables with chairs and booths available around the room’s perimeter.
The main dining space looks out a wall of windows to the Hippy Dippy Pool area.

Before we wrap things up, let’s take a look at the grab-and-go items available at Everything Pop. I am happy to inform you that there is usually a good variety of quality carbohydrates.
You’ll find bagels, pastries, cinnamon rolls, muffins, donuts, and cookies.
Additionally, there are brownies, strudels, and other yummy goodies.
Here is the price list. I would say those donuts are good for $1.99 each. But they also probably disappear quicker than anything else on the menu. I feel like I’m inhaling one just thinking about it.
The refrigerated case has some fun cupcakes. All of the items I’m sharing should be listed in the mobile order section on the My Disney Experience app.
Here was have the cookies and cream cupcake.
The cupcake was $5.49. You could also get overnight oats for $5.29. Or you could bring a few packs of instant oatmeal in your suitcase. Then ask for a paper bowl, and use one of those microwaves to make it yourself.
That’s probably a savings of at least $4.00. It sounds like something I might do. Speaking of breakfast, you can preview the menu here on Disney’s site.
The real shame is that I forgot to take a close-up of Pop Century’s signature Tie-Dye Cheesecake dessert. I’ve never tried it but I know it’s pretty popular.
Those that prefer your sugar in a healthier version, there is usually a variety of fruit cups available.
And there are several premade salads. If you mobile order and select a salad, this is what you’ll get.
The same goes for these premade sandwiches. I don’t understand why they can’t have a “create-your-own” custom sub instead of these.
We’ll move on before I get on my soapbox about gas station food at a Disney Resort.
Thankfully, there’s a decent selection of soda and sports beverages. In addition, a few beers and refrigerated wines are available.
This last cooler on the right has a few items geared toward children. It used to have a sign on it that indicated these items (except for the Uncrustables) could be selected as an additional kids’ meal side.
Unfortunately, Disney has raised the price of kids’ meals over this last year, and they’ve taken away the extra side. So now you get less for more.
Bananas were $2.29 each.
This shelf contained single serving cereal, allergy-friendly snacks, and water by the gallon. I don’t recall ever seeing jugs of gallon water anywhere at Disney, now that I think about it.
Someone had crammed Rice Chips, single serving wine, and mini packs of peanut butter into this display.
A few Mickey ice cream bars were available. These are the same ones they give out for “free” at Magic Kingdom when you attend an After Hours event.
And there’s usually a stash in the mini-fridge in the club level lounges. But those things cost considerably more than a stay at Pop Century.

As always, I hope this article provided you with a good overview of what to expect at Everything Pop’s food court. Over the years, we’ve enjoyed a few meals here when we’ve been guests of the resort.
Is this somewhere I would eat if I weren’t staying here? Most likely not. But that’s because there are so many better options nearby.
For instance, you can take the Skyliner to Disney’s Riviera Resort. Disney’s Riviera has the best quick service at Disney World, along with a bakery, and a lounge.
Primo Piatto, the quick service, offers an excellent breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu. You can mobile order your meal on the way over and enjoy it in the dining area or take it outside.

And if you’re looking for character dining at Disney World, Topolino’s Terrace is outstanding. They have a daily character breakfast that offers an opportunity to meet Mickey Mouse and Friends.
