Which value has the best food court?

I have only used the food court at POR and Poly. This time we are going budget and trying to decide where to stay.

I'll bump this one for you OP. I'm curious, too. From what I've read on these boards, my guess is that you will hear a lot of praise for the Pop food court. I'm curious about which is the favorite All Star food court, though.

I feel your pain because those are our two usual resorts and we especially like captain cooks. I like both Pop and AoA. Pop has a wide variety (love the tie dye cheesecake) and AoA has a unique selection. If you're not staying in a suite I would recommend Pop and walk over to AoA if you ever want to try something different- I highly recommend the surf and surf burger!

that say the all stars are together with a MacDonald on the corner - so you might get more selection with one of the All stars.

the all stars are cheaper than Pop or AoA.

I've stayed at the All Stars and PoP, and I have to vote for PoP. It is a *bit* more expensive, but there are a lot more choices, and the lines seem to move faster. O, and the food is better too!

Pop has an excellent food court. And you also are a short walk away from AoA's food court.

All 3 All Stars are not far from each other - giving you 3 food courts to choose from.

You will have a hard decision here!
Pop, POFQ, & POR

We prefer the food courts at the All Stars to Pop (haven't stayed at AoA).
Last value trip was AS Sports and we had good experiences with our three meals that we ate there.

Only done the food court at MOVIES and POP. I enjoy both, but POP is better IMO

I don't eat onions-they squelch when you bite into them
I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

AoA has the most varied selections. I only had one meal there and it was Indian Food which I didn't like but I'd never had Indian Food and after that I tried some more only to find out that I DON'T like ANY Indian Food.

However, there were lots of choices from the standard burger/fries to Indian food to fish.

Only other value I've eaten at is Music and since I am fine with basic food I was fine there, in fact they had a quesidilla this last time and I love chicken and cheese on a tortilla.

I have only had ASMu, but I thought it was very good. I love those Mickey waffles (They are at every food court)

Art of Animation was probably the best quick service food court of all the properties with the second best being Mira (AKL).

Before AoA, I would have said Pop. I haven't stayed at AoA, and usually the newest has the best food so.......

We really enjoyed the Pop food court on our trip this past December. We felt like we had a decent amount of choices for our group of 6, including my two DS, 6 & 8. We were on the QSDP and my dad loved being able to get a sundae for his dessert, lol. The lines usually moved pretty quickly too.

We did walk across the bridge one night to AoA and liked their food court too. My DH loved the Surf and Surf burger and I enjoyed my create your own pasta.

I agree with the PP who said if you are not going with a suite than Pop is a good choice. They have a good food court and the AoA if only a 10-15 minute walk across the bridge.

Good luck, it's not an easy decision.
