Earning My Ears

I know everyone's preferences are different, but was wondering if you had to choose between POP and CBR, which would you choose? Here's our story: My DH, 10-year old DD and myself will be going in late May/early June, and we are trying to decide. I am leaning towards POP from a budget standpoint. Also, we are very "plain Janes" when it comes to eating, so thought the American food they seem to have at their counter service would fit us. However, my DH would like to stay at a moderate resort for the comfort and says that with this spring offer going on, getting the extra 5% discount will help cost-wise, although we ran the numbers and POP is still cheaper. We are the type of travelers who spend much of the day at the parks. We will go to one park during the day, come back and swim and eat dinner and then go back to another park at night, so we don't spend as much time at our resort as I know other travelers do.

I've been to both and I liked POP more. Our room at CBR was so far from the main pool and food court that I felt like I wasn't staying at the resort. We also spend much of our time in the parks. Also, it was really cold during our trip to CBR so we didn't use the pools much. You might like it there during the summer. Myself I would not stay at CBR w/o a preferred room.
