We have done values many times, and ASMO is our favorite. We have stayed at POFQ and POR, and are going back to POR this trip. Movies has only one bus stop, even when its slower and it shares with the other all stars its better than 4 at POR. But the main thing is early morning- you will not share buses at ASMO, but there are still 4 stops at POR- and let me tell you- one day we had 3 HS buses drive right past us because it was already full, before one came with room to stop and pick a few of us up. it was my only complaint about POR.
But let me tell you it is QUIET at POR. It feels more relaxing, we loved it. The pools are great, boat to DTD, can go on and on.

No we did not like POR nearly as well as Movies. The resort was too big and I did not enjoy the theming. The value resorts feel more Disney to me. The only exceptions I would make is Deluxe or Coronado. At Coronado the pool and food court made up for the really long walks. POR was larger than I anticipated. Our room was not the farthest by any means and was a 10+ minute walk to the main pool and the refillable mug station.

I have stayed at both, multiple times. You did make the right choice by upgrading. Do try to spend some time at the resort, and don't miss the entertainment in the bar area Wed-Sat nights. Great show, great piano player, very family friendly too.
