AoA vs POP

Other than theming, what any differences are there between AoA and Pop? Is one any quiter or less hectic than the other? Preferences?

The food choices at AOA differ from Pop's -

The buildings at AoA, except LM, have indoor corridors like a hotel rather than the walkways of the Pop's motel-like buildings. I stayed at Pop and toured AoA, neither one seemed hectic to me and I ate in both food courts.

I think from a capacity perspective, POP has the potential to be more crowded. All of the buildings have the standard rooms, which have a maximum occupancy of 4.

The AoA Family Suite rooms have a maximum occupancy of 6, but take up the space of two regular rooms. 7 of the AoA buildings are suite only, three are the same as POP. So in theory, the AoA should be less crowded.

How about noise from neighbors? When we stayed at pop I thought the walls were made if paper because we could here everything from our neighbors

And buses? Are they super crowded?

We stayed at the AoA last year in a Cars suite. We did not have any noise issues at all.

We stayed at AOA over the summer. AOA has interior hallways for the suites. The pools are better than Pops, in my opinion. AOA has covered bus stops.

The rooms and furnishings are newer than Pop.
