Which resort for this trip?

We are planning a quick budget trip to WDW to use up some old unused airline tickets that are about to expire. Our trip will be for 4 or 5 nights the end of April 2013. Our goal is to keep this trip as low budget as possible, because we just got back from a long trip to WDW, Universal, and Sea World on Dec. 18th.

Between Pop Century, All-Star Sports, and All-Star Music, which would you pick and why? It's going to just be 2 adults. I don't think we'll request a king bed this time because I think all of the king bed rooms at values are handicap accessible rooms (meaning they have the bathtub-less showers).

It will be our first stay at a value. Would like to have good bus service (who wouldn't?) because it's our first trip together without a rental car and I want my fiancé to realize how easy the buses can be. The pools are not important because we won't be using them. Food court is kind of important, but we'll be in the parks most of the time so I'm not sure how often we'll actually eat in the food court.

I know the differences between the hotels can be a little exaggerated, but what would you pick? I know Pop Century is slightly more per night, and that everyone seems to like it...is it worth the extra cost?

I have only stayed at All Star Movies and really liked it - twice. Basically the All Stars are very similiar just different decor. ASMo 1st floor preferred room would be my choice.

That was our original plan but AS Movies isn't included in the promo code we are planning to use.

The first time we stayed at Pop was about a year or so ago. We loved it! We are staying there again before our cruise on the Fantasy in February. We really like the food court. The bus service is fine...

and we come to this resort as spoiled DVC brats!!
