All Star Music verses Pop Century

We are taking 3 teenage boys to WDW. I am trying to decide between All Star Music and Pop Century. We will have two rooms...all the boys in one and DH and I in the other. Which would be best for teenage boys and why? They are all 15 and up. This is for my oldest son's senior year and I want it to be very special. Thank you!

What interests you in these two over Sports and Movies?

I would assume you don't plan on spending a ton of time at the resort, the All Star Sports Theming your boys may enjoy the most.

I have stayed at both in the past two years...and found them very similar.

All Star Music
We stayed at the Family Suites and found the extra bathroom nice to have (not sure if you are planning on a suite)
PROS
Pool activities were awesome!
Very clean
Very quiet
Very convenient to Blizzard Beach and especially Animal Kingdom
Food Court was good

Cons
Only one...seemed a bit far to MK on the bus Epcot and DS werent too bad.

Pop
Stayed most recently
PROS
Very convenient location to all parks
Very clean
Good food court

CONS
Noisier
No pool activities when we were there (but I am told there are some now)
Bus wait times at night seemed longer

I think you will be happy either way, hey you're in Disney World!

If you are planning on having connecting rooms, the Music resort is a poor choice. Many of their connecting rooms were converted into the suites, so they have fewer of them to give out. And if all of your kids are under 18, you have to have connecting rooms. If not, you and your hubby will have to sleep separately, which is probably not your idea of a great vacation. Disney insists an adult has to be in each room, unless that room connects to another room with an adult in it.

We've stayed at both and prefer Pop. We like the Pop food court much better, and we had far better housekeeping there than at ASMu (which I know can be good or bad at any resort, but for us this is how it worked out). For me, Pop feels newer and the atmosphere was more fun. My kids (13 and 7 when we stayed at Pop, 14 and 8 when we stayed at ASMu) preferred Pop, too.

We've done both and prefer Music. I think it's really just a personal preference. Does your oldest son know that you will be going? If so, ask for his input since the trip is for him.
