Hourglass Lake-POP and AoA share the Lake and are the only Values with a Lake.

I like the lake...that's what sets it apart from the all star resorts for me.

Not only the lake...

But you can get a lakeview room at standard value rates

The landscaping at POP is really above and beyond the other values and puts it closer to a moderate in that respect. AoA has some creative landscape but lots of empty space, maybe in time.

Everything! We love the theming, the atmosphere (it's a little more lively when we go), the smell (I can't even begin to describe it, but I love it), and of course dedicated buses. I also love the food court, yeah it can be busy in the morning or late night, but we like the hustle and bustle. OH! And the music!

The BUS music is extra special-I love the old TV theme songs and there is nothing quite like some Bob Dylan when returning from Magic Kingdom on a DISNEY bus at 2:00 AM!
