If it were me, I would upgrade. It's only $100 more to stay at resort with queen size beds. Totally worth it, in my opinion.

We are Pop Century junkies - so we would probably stay with Value. $100 is $100. None of the mods have "everything" that I would want if i were upgrading -

CBR has double beds (same as Pop)
POR shares a bus (Pop does not)
POFQ doesn't have a table service (same as Pop)
CSR is too big and we have had 2 bad experiences there

So, seeing as I wouldn't get the "full" moderate feel at any of them (b/c we will not stay at CSR again), I don't see the value in leaving the values

Nothing against the values as we have always enjoyed our stays at them. Having said that, we will always chose a moderate over a value now for the following reasons.

Bigger rooms
Double sinks
Pool slide
Hot tub
Table service restaurant
Multiple covered bus stops
Lush landscaping
Boat rentals
Bike rentals

We use all of the above amenities. If you won't, then no need to upgrade.

The only negative I see to switching is, once you stay in a moderate you may not want to stay in a value again. Of course, I've heard the same for staying in a deluxe.

as others said, no brainer, wish we had that option, our difference in price is 2 g's for our trip in sept so we will be sticking with pop century.

For $100, upgrade! After our last stay at Pop, my husband said no more double beds!

We love CSR!
