However, even in this world of fantasy and wonder, the occasional hiccup, such as a power outage, can occur. While such occurrences are rare, the dedicated Disney World Cast Members at Pop Century Resort are well-prepared to handle them with efficiency and grace.

Mindo tweeted on X (formally known as Twitter) about the popular Disney Resort Pop Century and the strange experience that happened. Pop Century guests ended up dealing with a massive power outage. During this outage, the lights kept going on and turning off.

Upon the power outage, the resort’s emergency protocols swiftly sprung into action. Backup generators hummed to life, ensuring that essential systems such as lighting, security, and communication remained operational. Cast members, trained to prioritize guest comfort and safety above all else, go into action, providing clear instructions and assistance to guests throughout the property.

In a viral TikTok, one guest who witnessed the power outage was hoping to get a refund due to this experience.


Ive been staying on property at @waltdisneyworldresort multiple times a year for my entire life (32 years) and this has never happened to me! I cant even remember ever losing power much less this crazy scenario. Has this ever happened to you at a major resort? #waltdisneyworld #wdw #waltdisneyworldresorts #popcenturyresort #poweroutage
