    We're trying to decide between Pop Century, All Star Movies and All Star Sports. We have stayed in Pop Century twice and really like it, but we want to try a new value resort. We will get a preferred room. We like how in movie we would Be in the fantasia part of the hotel. But would like to know other things about movies.

    Preferred rooms at movies can be Toy Story, Fantasia, or 101 Dalmations. No guarantee of Fantasia but you can request that area.

    We've stayed there and enjoyed it. It's very 'in your face' Disney. The All Star resorts share a bus system I believe, but I can't give much insight on that since we drive. If you've stayed at Pop the rooms aren't much different. It's really just a theme change.

    Have stayed at Movies twice. I love it's compact size - it really isn't a far walk to anything especially if you're staying preferred. It really doesn't matter which themed area you choose it's all very "larger than life". We did share busses in the AM with the other All Star Resorts on our trips in August and December but it wasn't much of a problem. When returning from parks we shared sometimes - we would sometimes hop a bus to Music and then just walk over to Movies.

    Pop is awesome! We LOVE Pop!

    It's clean everywhere, has a walking bridge to AoA, has sparkling clean pools, great food court, very polite front desk help, etc, etc.

    Pop also has ONE bus - going through 3 All Stars (if you are the third one) is a bit much. Sometimes - when busy - the All Stars do have their own buses, but I am not sure how often.

    Love Pop also. And the option of riding the AofA bus if it arrives first and then walking across the bridge to Pop really helps after a long day in the park!
