I just calculated an estimate as far as prices for my planned trip in May. It would consist of 7 nights and here's what I came up with.

These are rounded up prices to the higher dollar.

All Stars
St - 813
20% Dis - 650
Pre - 974
20% Dis - 779

Pop Century
St - 897
20% Dis - 722
Pre - 1051
20% Dis - 841

AoA LM would be $932 so yeah not worth it. As far as picking between AS vs PC the price differences aren't that extreme less I pick a standard room over a preferred. I'm still on the edge of decision here.

I may have to improvise on food court breakfast perhaps consider doing breakfast in the parks on some days or maybe at another hotel.

Based on the post above, I have made a decision...

I believe the winner (at least in this point in the planning stage) shall be...

POP Century (standard)


I based my decision on the following...
  • Food court - I understand that all food courts will be crowded no matter what. However as an added bonus, the AoA food court is across the bridge and I think the bonus of another eatery nearby will be good not only for cases of crowds, but for variety. It will get tiring eating at the same place everyday.
  • Atmosphere - This will be great for just walking around which we might do on any given night we finish going to the parks early or decide to do a park later. We can explore two resorts in walking distance plus get nice water views. The Pop Century area will be new territory for me as I have already stayed in the All Stars area in the past as well.
  • Price - It will only be a $70-80 difference staying at Pop. I tend to blow that amt of money on occasion in a day so it's hard to care.
  • Walking - basically what I explained under "atmosphere". I feel it will make no difference how far we are from the main building as long walking is inevitable, but I am gonna aim for a request near the dining hall 1st floor if possible.
  • Buses - not really a factor anymore but having its own bus system is another plus
