I've never stayed at Pop Century, but I have stayed at all 3 All Star Resorts multiple times....So, having never stayed at one of them, I'd go with All Star Movies out of the other two, personally.
DCP Fall 2012: Strollers/Main Entrance Merchandise, Magic Kingdom
Vacations to WDW: 20
Vacations to DL: 2
I think that POP is by far the best value resort

Thanks for your help. I wanted to stay at Pop century, but the rest of my group wants to stay at All-Star Music. So I guess that we will be staying there, hopefully.

Everybody's already said that POP is their choice,as is mine as well.The whole resort is spread out and is bigger than the allstars.There is nothing wrong with the allstars,we've stayed in all three and in music 4 times.But the gift shop and food court are open-air,adjacent with each other,the gift shop is bigger than those at allstars.More stuff?Maybe.Food court has a very good selection of fast foods plus nice plate dinners ranging from pork roast with veggies,and such.For the money,POP is your best bet.Just remember,you mostly sleep,shower and watch a little tv in the rooms,and you can lay on the bed to watch tv,so why pay for a fancier place and not benefit from it?The arcade at POP is bigger and better.You now have to use a swipe card to play the games.Which is not a bad idea,just load your swipe card at a machine by putting in the ammount of money you choose to spend.Plus you do get to play the games that gives tix to save up for some of the "corny prizes" at the end of your stay.
One more thing,don't forget about Downtown Disney for nightlife.We are not drinkers of alcoholic beverages anymore(but used to be),nor do we go to the clubs or places where people dance and hang out(got kids now,that life is over),but Downtown Disney is a great place to hang out.Disney Quest in westside is awesome!Plus we like to just go into the shops and play with the toys on display and check out the stuff there.
Hope I've helped.
