  • [Question] Abandoned Resort buildings

    Can anyone post an aerial pic of those abandoned (Pop Century?) buildings or tell me how to get close to them to take pictures. By close I don't mean trespassing, just close enough for some good zoom pics. Thanks.

      Just go to Pop Century Resort. There is a bridge that was to connect the two parts of the resort and half of it is open. You can also see the buildings from the walkways at the Resort that are along the lake. That's as close as you can get without trespassing.

            No and No.

            When the slowdown started after 9/11 construction was halted on that half of the property and they sit there still..

                Even though I have seen this in person and in pictures before, it still looks creepy like a bad horror movie scene. I can't believe they let those buildings sit like that, very un-Disney like.

                  Its amazing how often Disney abandons big projects.

                    God forbid something like this should happen at the DLR, lest all the transients from around the area start seeking shelter.

                    At least WDW is so big that something like this isn't noticeable.

                      Re: Abandoned Resort buildings

                      A couple months ago Jim Hill reported that these will be turning into large family-suite style rooms in the coming years.

                      Pop Century and All Stars resorts always seem to be completely booked, so it's shameful that these buildings have been dormant as long as they have. I wonder how much revenue they lost by NOT opening these?

                        I wonder if any problems like mold develop from being vacant for so many years in a humid climate like Central Florida's.

                            I thought I had heard that the buildings there would have to be torn down and rebuilt since they have been sitting there dormant so long.

                              That will be addressed by tearing the structures down before any further construction, if any, begins. Luckily, only 2 were built and not 10 as was planned.
