Glad you stay went well.
I had the same experience about the talking at AKL. I could hear people talking but not at Sports.

And that is too funny about the towels.......

Intelligent

Ang, you know I am an intelligent woman. I am wise enough to know when I know something and when I do not.

I am thinking on becoming your neighbor in May. I will see what my sisters says to that when I talk to her.

That would be awsome if you could be there when we are. May 27th will be our first day. I will warn you though that May/June 09 was terribly hot with record highs but May/June 10 was nice perfect weather. For me anyway.
Timmy said she wants to come down May/June 11 as well so it will be a lot of fun.

They are all in the Surf's Up building.

The first page of this post has most of the general info on the resort.
Are you looking for anything specific?

Pop does have the most extensive amount of information taken from what people have posted on their thread posted on their first page.

Are you asking for routes from the different buildings to the busses or from AS to each park?

Is it sad I don't know what I am looking for. Pop just had so much info. I guess I am looking for something with info to get me excited about the switch. I was really looking forward to pop but can't beat the deal I got with the switch so I guess I am just looking for info that would get me excited for the new hotel.

Great for some

nickandregan, POP is newer than the other Values and much bigger so that is probably why there is so much information. If you click on the top button that says resorts on the DIS there are many pictures there.

Sports is much smaller than POP. It has a football field in the middle where kids run around and play sometimes. None of the buildings are very far from the main building. There are two laundries, one at each end. The bus stops there first before heading down to Music and Movies.

It is our favorite for those reasons. It is all in what you want from a resort as to whether you will like it or not.

If you would please tell us what you want we might be able to give you better advice.

Nick,
If you want to get excited after looking at the Dis for info on the resort look at All Ears website for lots and lots of pictures and info on the All Stars.

As Slightly Goofy said Sports seens much smaller and even has 3 floors vs 4 at Pop. Everything is just more compact and convenient to get to and less crowded IMO. This helps in the cafeteria unless you go when there is a school group eating. The only thing it doesn't have that I miss from POP is a lake with a bridge and some of the mor fun Icons outside the building since sports icons do nothing for me. lol

Don't get me wrong Pop is a nice resort too but we all have our preferences. Pop just went through renovations and Sports were done like 2 years ago so they are newer as well. I think the only thing about the rooms that I like the idea of is that Pop now has curtains between the sink area and the room. I wish they had them at Sports. They did put them in at Music too though.

HTH and if you think of any questions just ask.
