    We have stayed at ASMo multiple times and Pop Century once. Hands down for us, I would choose ASMo everytime. Personally, I just like the theming throughout ASMo. Our favorite buildings are in the Toy Story section, we just feel like we are home when we arrive there!

    I'm partial to Pop... I've been to all of the AS resorts, and they're not bad by any means. Both have similar food inthe courts (just different names/themes). I guess my biggest plus is the location (right across from WWS) and the busses seem better, don't know if they're less crowded, more frequent or what.

    I liked them both. The food was about the same. The shop was separated at Movies not like at Pop. I didn't get to try the pools. I think my kids would like Pop but I really like perferred locations theming of Toy Story at Movies.

    I stayed at Pop! last June and ASM the year before. Although the food was basically the same, the atmosphere @ Pop was better and the staff was more curtious :] Also, the buses are less crowded it seems because they have to go to one resort, when we were @ the ASM the buses were always so full due to having to go to multiple resorts.
    A dream is a wish your heart makes.

    Has anyone been in January (after New Years?). That could give me a closer idea of how it will be for us.

    I have stay at All Star Movies, but for the past 4 times that I have gone to Disney, I have stayed at Pop and will always make that my first request, simply becuase I like the layout, they have the bridge you can walk to at night and have a cup of coffee or Hot choclate and watch some of the fireworks from Ecopt every night and you don't have to share the buses, just one stop Pop Century. No stopping off at Sports and then Music and last Movies, and the buses get crowded.
    DISNEY IS MY HAPPY PLACE THE ONLY TIME THAT I GET 2WKS OF HAPPINESS AND WORRY FREE TIME!!!!!! This time I will see it through the eyes of my baby girl born 2008.

    Next Trip is December 2010

    Can't wait!!!!!!
