Since you have a car and don't need ME, why not consider Swan/Dolphin? If you have AAA, you can get a discount which will put the price at just a little more than a value resort (just checked and a Friday in Oct. is $188 at the dolphin) and you will get a fabulous hotel with some of the most comfortable beds on property. Bus transportation to and from MK will be the same, (if not quicker,) as a value. Just for comforts sake, I would pick S/D over a value anytime!

Yes, it is a short walk across the bridge to POP. We had a great room in 60s lakeview that had a great view and was very close to the bridge.

All Stars are the least expensive, so that's my vote. I think Movies looks the best. We tried Sports, and didn't fall in love with the theming, but others love it.
Pop is our fav value, though. Wish they hadn't raised their rates.

AsMovies gets 5% off for end of August. I booked a night at the discounted price.

If I were you I would go to Pop because the rooms at the AoA are really far away. Pop is probably the closest the magic kingdom.
