Any good reasons to upgrade from POP to Carribean Beach or Coronado Springs?

We are scheduled to stay at Pop Century from 12/28-1/5.

do the mod resorts have fridges?

What are other reasons I may want to upgrade during this time? I need to be convinced! I'm not overly thrilled about POP.

Thank you!

We only upgraded due to bed size.

We've stayed at POP and CBR. We found POP to be the superior resort out of the two. CBR was not worth the extra cost to us.

I am asking myself the same question! I am trying to weigh out the cost difference as to the amenities, bed size and the pool area. Ugh!

Bed sizes are different? Are there not two queens at the values?

I just went through this very same dilemma and ended up upgrading to Coronado, even though its only for a short trip. I really want the bigger beds and the hot tub, which I know I'll use as I'm from New England sunny and 65 is hot tub weather as far as I'm concerned. I also think CSR has great transportation (have stayed there twice before). I love the bed linens, too, and if the linens at AoA this summer were any indication, don't think I'd like them much at Pop.

Now I'm contemplating trying for AKL. UGH!!! Why can't I ever make a decision and stick with it???

I'm thinking, I LOVE Boma. There are a lot of available ADR's there while we are there. The kids will love the animals. It's the least pricey of the deluxes, but still incredibly pricey. Plus I have two rooms.

Trying to make this trip as "comfortable" as possible, especially where it's the busiest week of the year and I'm not exactly chipper in health with uncontrolled diabetes that I'm trying to work on.

Should I????

Oh help me justify it!!

Not certain when they added them. but my last trip in October in ASMusic I had a fridge in a standard room, and the visit a year ago at Pop I had one, also a standard room.
