You’re probably aware but the number of rooms is not indicative of the physical size of the resort. While AoA has the least number of rooms, it’s buildings are the same size as Pop Century and in fact some of the AoA rooms are further from the buses than the Pop rooms are. AoA is mainly suites so less rooms.Maybe old isn't the right word. I think it's more that the decorations look kind of like city grates, and that makes it look older or industrial or something.
I didn't mean to offend. I get that people like it a lot. It just looked kind of disappointing to me. My daughter loves Toy Story, so we were expecting all the Toy Story characters, and the cute Fantasia pool with sorcerer Mickey and the whimsical brooms. A pool with a computer (or one with hippies) just seems a little less... fun.

But maybe I'm wrong! People are already telling me things I didn't know, like there's a splash pad at one of the pools at Pop! I think it will end up being more enjoyable than it sounds or looks from the pictures. When it comes down to it, my kid will love a pool whether it's got Mickey spraying water at her, a computer statue, or no decor at all!
You're also right that almost all the values are very large, it's just that Pop specifically is the largest. I believe it's the largest of all the Disney resorts. Pop Century has 2,880 rooms, All-Star Movies and Sports have 1,920 rooms, All-Star Music has 1,604 rooms, and Art of Animation has 984 rooms.
I'm sure I'll end up liking it there. There have been some people who on these boards who said they like Pop more than deluxe resorts! It sounds like most people end up really liking it after they stay there, so I'm sure I'll be the same way. I think I'll really like the Skyliner especially.
The All Star Resorts are 3 stories high while Pop and AoA are 4 stories tall.
