Okay, the nearest book  was The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World 2006, and here's the passage:

The Pop Century Resort is pretty much a close of the All-Star Resorts, only this time the giant icons symbolize decades of the twentieth century (Big Wheels, 45-rpm records, sihouettes of people doing period dances, etc.), and period memorabilia decorate the rooms.

Pretense aside, the Contemporary, Swan, and Dolphin are essentially themeless though architecturally interesting.  The Contemporary is a 15-story, A-frame bhyilding with monorails running through the middle.  Views from guest rooms in the Contemporary Tower are among the best at Disney World.  Swan and Dolphin are massive yet whimsical.  Designed by Michael Graves, they're excellent examples of "entertainment architecture."  Unfortunately, a little too much whimsy and enteretainment worked their way into Dolphin's guest rooms, which border on garish.

We never went, though...
  • You never went

    but if we ever do, now I know where to stay. Thanks! Contemporary for great views, Dolphin or Swan if we're up to an over-dose of Michael Graves. I like him as a designer, but a hotel full might be too much, though it could be fun?
    • Re: You never went

      If we go, we're not staying on site. Too expensive for not much extra. There are lots of really nice hotels in the area.

      (Truthfully, the books that were geographically closest to me were my wife's feminist theory texts that she was using for a chapter she's writing. But I was thinking of *my* books, which made me look at my bookshelf over my other shoulder, and I temporarily forgot Janice's books were even there. Actually the very closest book was an introductory Legal Studies textbook sitting in front of my monitor, but believe it or not, that one didn't have a page 123 -- although it did have a page 563 (bet you can't figure that one out...</b>).)
