    Is it possiible to put 5 people in a room @ POP? We have 2 adults, 3 kids ages 9, 5, and 4. Want to stay in one room since we don't spend a lot of time there.

    Only 4 can stay at POP / All Stars. A family of 5 can stay at POR in the Alligator Bayou rooms (there are 2 doubles and a trundle). This would be less expensive than 2 rooms at POP. Good Luck with you trip plans.

    Welcome.

    No, only 4 to a room, some resorts allow a child under 3 to stay. Check out www.allears.com This will give you a room fact sheet to verify.

    Good luck.

    I've stayed there and 5 would be way to crowded. Go for moderate w/trundle at POR or adjoining rooms at Pop. (which ever is less $) I know we don't spend a lot of time in the room either, but you need to have room to sleep while you are there.

    If you do decide to go against the official policy of 4 to a room, someone in your group will not get a Resort ID and will not get to go to Early Mornings or Extra Magic Hours.

    You have the choice of staying at POR a delux or 2 rooms at a value.
    I would go with 2 rooms at the All Stars.

    I am 55 years old and travel several times a year. I often stay at 4 star hotels.
    So the deluxe resorts do not have anything special for me.
    All Star is like being in the heart of the Magic and that is where I want to be.

    All Star Music is my favorite.It is quieter because more couples stay there. I love staying at the Clypso building. It is closer to the pool,food court and bus stop.

    Here is a site with a map of All Star Sports and All Star Music.
    http://www.wdwinfo.com/resortmaps/allstarmap.htm
    Scroll down.All Star Music is at the bottom of the page.
    The Calypso buildings at All Star Music are #1 and #10 are nearest to the food court and bus stop.
    They are the preferred buildings and cost about $12 extra per night.
    The Calypso pool at ASMU has Donald Duck.

    Here is the map of All Movies.
    http://www.wdwinfo.com/resortmaps/allstarmovie.JPG
    The Fantasia Buildings are the preferred buildings.
    The All Star Movie Fantasia pool has Mickey.
    It is a great place to stay .
    Preschoolers love it.
    It is like being in the middle of a Disney Movie Fantasyland.

    The buses are wonderful.

    Bus rides are quite short from the ALL Stars according to PassPorter.com

    All Star Buses-CBR buses---CSR buses--PO buses--- Contemporary
    MK 20 min---- 20 min-----15 min------10 min---20 min(mono)
    Epcot 10 min-- 15 min-----15 min------10 min---15 min
    MGM 10 min----12 min-----15 min------15 min---20min
    AK 10 min------20min-------10 min----15 min---20 min
    DTD 15 min----20 min------35 min-----15 min---35 min

    It only takes 10 minutes to get to Epcot,MGM and AK from All Stars.
    MK is 20 min away. That's the same amount of time it takes on the monorail from the Contemporary.

    The All Star resorts have 1960 rooms each.
    Pop has 2,880rooms.
    That means more people in the pools,food court and in line waiting for the bus at POP.
    When phase 2 of POP is built it will be 2 bus stops at POP and the 2 POPs will have the same # of rooms as the 3 All Stars.

    Also All Star is closer to the main road to get to parks and thats why bus rides are shorter from there than from POP.

    A WORD ABOUT BUS SHARING:

    It is usually just our stop and maybe one more on the way to the parks. On the way back sometimes its all 3 but often Sports and Music share and Movies has it's own bus back.

    I guess some people who stay at POP see all 3 All Star names on the return sign of our bus stop when they head to the POP bus stop and think All Stars also has 3 stops on the way to the park.
    (Even when we stop at another AS resort to load up it has not taken more than 5 minutes and we are on our way!)

    I love the All Star Resorts --they can't be beat. I have visited WDW more than a dozen times with the 1st time in Oct. 1971. It was brand new. I've stayed at FW, Disney Inn, a few the of Hotels on hotel Blvd., CBR and the towers at the Contemporary. I got to see the MK from my balcony at the Contemporary and I'm happy I got to experience it once. I just prefer the All Star Resorts.
    The theaming is pure Disney.
    My last 4 visits have been at The All Stars and this fall when we take dd,dsil, and our grandson age 3 we are staying at the All Stars Music. I thought about AKL and even though we can well afford AKL I just wanted Alex to experience the Disney Magic at the All Stars on his first visit.
    Where else can one find Donald Duck or Mickey Mouse at the pool?
    Have a great time at Disney!
    Linda
