A Value Resort, Disney’s Pop Century, Makes List of Recalled Cast Members

Disney is on the move! We are excited to learn that Cast Members are being called back to work as Walt Disney World prepares for the reopening of 12 select resorts on June 22 and the phased reopening of the parks beginning July 11. As previously posted, a list of locations Cast Members are being recalled to was shared by The Orlando Hotel and Restaurant Works Movement with Local 737 UniteHere. Within the list, a new value resort is recalling Cast Members – Disney’s Pop Century Resort!


The initial wave of recalled Cast Members included the 12 resorts reopening on June 22 including:

  • Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort
  • Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
  • Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village
  • Disney’s Beach Club Villas
  • Disney’s BoardWalk Villas
  • Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground
  • Disney’s Old Key West Resort
  • Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows
  • Disney’s Riviera Resort
  • Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort
  • The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort

Today, the Union had two resort additions to this list for recalls of Cast Members including Pop Century and Coronado Springs. Of course, this does NOT mean those two resorts will reopen on June 22. It does however mean that by staffing these resorts soon, we are hoping their reopening is in the near future.

At Coronado Springs Resort, the Union lists recalls Cast Members for the Barcelona Lounge, Catering Culinary & Stewarding, Food Handlers, Housekeeping, and Stewarding. The addition of Coronado Springs on the list of recalls doesn’t come as a full shock as we have learned the NBA Players will be staying at the Gran Destino Tower and will of course need the Cast Members staffed.

For Pop Century, the recalls are for Culinary & Stewarding, Everything Pop, Food Handlers, and Petals Pool Bar. This would be the first value resort (with the exception of Fort Wilderness) to recall their Cast Members! We’re hoping this is a good sign for future reopening sooner rather than later.

What are your thoughts? Do you think Pop Century will be among the first Value Resorts to reopen? We’ll keep you posted as we continue to learn more!

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
