Should I switch?

Hey Everybody!
We will be going on our first Disney trip Aug. 18-23. We currently have reservations at AoA in a LM room. With the new late summer discount, I have considered switching to POP. I called yesterday and it would only save around $140.
I have no idea about either hotel other than the LM rooms looked neat. So.....what would you do? Would you switch or stay?

Personally, I would stay put because AOA is brand new and I would love to stay there but, can't afford a suite. We have boys so LM doesn't appeal to me either...but, Cars sure does!!

Personally, I love Pop. I have stayed there twice and had a great experience both times. This past February, we were actually booked at AoA but switched to Pop when a discount came out. We had no regrets. We still walked over to AoA and explored (it's right across the bridge from Pop, very close). The reason we were ok with switching was that the LM rooms are pretty much identical to Pop rooms, minus the theming. They have the exact same amenities. However, at AoA, the LM rooms are pretty far from the main building. At Pop, you can request a room in the 70's section and it is very close to the main building and still at standard price. If you were going for a suite, I'd say stay at AoA but since you're just staying in a standard room, you might as well switch to Pop and save money. Request a 70's building and you'll have a great time. It's close to the main pool but not directly by a pool so it's quieter.
