Both pools range in depth from 3ft to 5ft.

Ok I need help! We stayed at POP last year, and it was nice, but I wanted to stay in a moderate next time. Well we are going for free dining in sept/oct. I REALLY want to book CBR, but to save money want to book sports. It is about a $700 difference in the 2. What would you do? I know most don't spend time at the resorts, but we will during the day b/c we are taking our DS who is 2 and he takes naps. We did not take him last year but our DD who was 4 at the time and does not nap, did take them at disney. So I know our son will. Because of this I can't say, "we will only be there to shower and sleep" we will be at the resort for 2-3 hrs a day, and I will not be sleeping nor will DH. Which would you do? Help sell me on ASM to save money , or would you go ahead and pay the difference to stay at CRB?

I'd save the money- Just me (that means I get to stay longer or go more often when I stay at the values).

The All Stars or POP are perfectly acceptable. Actually my kids don't like the other resorts. They aren't DISNEY enough for them, lol.

There are plenty of fun things to do the All Stars, and there are plenty of Disney touches. I've stayed at CBR, and I thought it was too huge and stretched out. I'd stay at a value over the moderates anyday.

We have decided to switch from staying at WH to staying at ASSP for free dining this year. Yeah. I'm gonna call reservations first thing in the morning and book my grand gathering. I will be booking three rooms and am really excited now.

I was searching for this thread over the weekend and couldn't find it; I'm so glad it's here now!

We just booked ASSp for Jan 30-Feb 6, 2010. We've stayed at all the other values and want to give ASSp a try.

We booked a preferred room and requested a King bed. Has anyone had one of these rooms that can say where they are?

I look forward to reading through this thread for everyone's experiences

The preferred rooms are all in the two Surf's Up buildings closest to the main hall (we stayed in a preferred room last time - it was great!).

I would also save the money! The value resorts are way more kid friendly and DISNEY!! We enjoyed looking around at all the statues etc. and the pools. Also, it seemed like even the food at the value was cheaper?? We visited some friends at the Coronado and saw the menu. Maybe not, that's just what I remember. Of course, with FREE DINING this wouldn't matter! When we did the character dining we visited lots of resorts, and the all-stars were definately more disney"ish". I can't wait!!

Thank you for the replies. Surf's up buildings are very cool looking as well I guess if we don't get the King bed we requested, DH & I can push the doubles together. Actually, that may even be better!

I finally made it through reading this thread. Quite a lot of great info! I'm so excited just to get back to WDW but this resort sounds like fun!

Got my reservation Monday morning. Booked my grand gathering at ASSP for October 3-10, 2009 with free dining!!!!! I am soooo excited and can't wait for my boys to enjoy the resort. I have requested the touchdown building, as I didn't pay for a preferred room but want something relatively close to the main area. I know it is not guaranteed I will get that building, but doesn't hurt to try. I would actually rather stay in the baseball building, but it is in the far back and I am not sure how far the walk is. Happy planning everyone!

Baseball is really not far at all from the main building/food court.
I thought that all of the buildings had a short walk to the main building/food court.
