On a budget this trip - best value resort?
 
I love POR and that is the only resort I have stayed at. We were planning on heading there again as I love the lushness of it, food court, pool, etc. But I just had a huge vet bill for my dog so we will have to do value this time. I don't know much about them so could anyone tell me which one they would choose. We would like a decent food court and I would like a fairly decent pool. We are 3 adults. TIA

I really like pop century. Especially the 80s section as they play music from that era.

I highly recommend POP! I know there have been a few people coming back here with negative reports of POP, but honestly I think they are still in the minority. AND I also believe the ones who do not speak up and request a new room when they have multiple issues really shouldn't come on here and complain. You didn't advocate for yourself there, you really shouldn't be bashing here IMO.
Anyway, I have stayed at POP MANY times and have had very minor issues if any at all and they have been GREAT about taking care of those minor issues. I enjoy the food court at POP and you could also walk over GGbridge and visit the food court at AoA. I hear mixed reviews of it. Many like the food but don't care for busing their table since they use real plates/silverware there. But it would give you two Food courts to choose from esp if you request a room in a bldg close to GG bridge (bldgs 4, 5 or 3 even) Good Luck making your decision!!

We haven't stayed at AoA yet, so the only other Value we will stay at is Pop, I would choose either of those. We got the Motel 6 feel at the All Stars. We have always had outstanding service at Pop.

Just back from AoA and unless you just want the new, I'd stay at Pop ;)

Recently back from POP and loved it. Did not have any complaints!

Our family's favorite value is ASmo, but we also liked POP. For adults, you'd probably like POP the best.

IMHO...all star MUSIC tops them all. period

We've had great experiences at Pop on our trips :thumbsup2

POR is my favorite but this last trip we stayed at POP. I loved the food court and the beds were super squishy. I loved it. The only complaint was that you could hear the toilets flushing in other rooms. It's been a while since I stayed at a moderate but I don't remember that issue there. But that was no big deal.

The only other "complaint" is that it seemed like the bus stops for POP was always the last one at the parks! :(

ASMu is our favorite, but I've only visited the others. I like the front to back setup, and usually get to stay in the middle Jazz section. Also, both pools are nice and big.

stargazertechie 01-07-2013 04:27 PM

POP, for sure!

My favorite is Music, mainly because it seemed to be the least 'busy' of the three all stars. I've never been attracted to PoP or Movies or Sports so havn't stayed there just looked at them, but as far as inside the rooms they are pretty much interchangable so it's really just what you prefer atmosphere wise. I did just do a stay at Art of Animation Little Mermaid rooms so standard size and amenities, and it was fine but I didn't like it as much as Music. I'm not a fan of the big oversized icons and Music was a little more understated.

Music had less 'kid' appeal so both times I've stayed there the adults have seemed to out number the kids. No cartoony type icons, just well music related ones. The quiet pool at the back of the resort was quiet (I was right next to it last trip) and not a lot of kids around as the main pool is very close (Music is compact) and most of them were up there. No bar at the back pool but don't know how important that is too you.


Of course it was also the very first I ever stayed at WDW so it does have a special memory for me.

Agree stayed at all but AOA and Music was our fav! Will never stay at POP again. Our def least fav of them all! Side note...we were in the Jazz building, close to transportation and main hall but away from pool noise.

I think I'm in the minority here but my favorite value is All Star Sports. The Surfboard Bay pool is absolutely gorgeous and its a quick walk to the food court and the main hall from any of the buildings!
