Yeah the fact that Pop has its own bus was the determining factor for us when deciding on a resort for this trip. Price is a huge factor for us, and while the All Stars are cheaper, the bus system at Pop won out.

The fact that I get to go there in not very long!!!!

I've never stayed there but I'm excited about the 1.3 m lake running path - perfect for mile repeats.

You will LOVE running around Hourglass Lake!

It is so scenic with POP on one side and AoA on the other-especially at night with everything lit up!

The THEMING. I've heard people saying that it's a resort for families because the colorful giant icons are appealing to kids, but I think they're specially appealing to adults, since they bring back memories of things we have lived. The MUSIC, for the same reasons. I just loved having breakfast to the sound of 80s music! Tye dye cheesecake is a must-eat! And the fact that you can see illuminations from the top floor of building 3. I JUST LOVE POP CENTURY!!!

Definitely the bus! Every time I try to decide on a resort to stay at, I always come back to POP because they have their own bus that they don't share with other resorts. Makes getting to and from the parks a fast trip! Also, it's very decently priced for a very well themed resort.

Guess we are in the minority. Spent two weeks there in September and we didn't care for it. Crowded buses, long bus lines at Pop and especially returning from MK. Food court was extremely crowded. We didn't care that much for the themes. Our favorite value has been Movies.

1. Price

2. Theming

3. Lakeview if you can get it

I gotta agree with circus4u on the buses. It's nice that they have the dedicated buses, but they are a little slice of hell when the lines get long at the beginning or end of a park day.
Next trip BCV 2/14

There are many things that are awesome about POP!

1) The fun atmosphere with a variety of music
2) The pool bar- fun drinks!
3) Games at the pool
4) There is something for everyone there
5) Food court selection
6) Buses- even with longer lines at the end of the night, they usually go pretty fast with limited time spent on waiting.

We LOVE Pop and can't wait to go back!
Me (36) DH (42) DS (9) DD (4) Have stayed at: GF x6, Poly x3, CR x3, SWAN x1, POR x2, CBR x2, POP x7, AsMo x1 & ASMu x1
