    I prefer Pop Century. As a whole the resort is nicer plus it has it's own bus system where the All Stars all share a bus.

    I'm a huge fan of all star movies. It feels the most Disney to me.

    I, too, prefer Pop. I love the isolation and the fact that they have their own bus line. I love the theming and the food court. I just love it all.

    I also love All Star Movies, but Pop is our preference.

    Pop hands down. I've found the bus situation at the All Stars to be completely intolerable. If you do go with the All Stars, Sports is my favorite of the 3 because it's the first on th bus line.

    POP! I've never even considered Allstars since I heard the buses serve all 3.

    We're staying at Pop when we go in November. Looks like we made a pretty good choice.

    I couldn't agree more. ASMo is our favorite of the value resorts. Pop is nice and it's newer and sure the bus thing is great... but we don't use the bus... and our son doesn't get the theming at all. When he can look out his window and see Buzz Lightyear, he gets it.
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    I just booked my trip this May to POP. YAY! I do understand that the themeing is more Disney at the other resorts but I enjoy the convenience of POP and not having to wait for buses at the close of the day.

    I've actually stayed at All-Stars about ten times and I've never had any problems with the buses. The longest I've had to wait is probably five minutes.

    I have stayed at both...we were very lucky when we were checking in at the All Stars we were upgraded to a family suite which rocked! We had so much space and it was like having our own little apartment to come home to each night! The movies and games at the main pool were also very entertaining. The only draw back were the buses, I felt the buses to the parks took forever to pick us up but coming home at night was far easier than when we stayed at POP. When we stayed at POP we had a great location to the main hall and bus stop and we loved our room. The impressive part of staying at POP was the number of buses available, that was the nice part of having dedicated buses.

    I would return to either of these resorts in a heartbeat. We have had a great experience at both but we will most likely book family suites in the future because they rock!

    A little pixie dust can fix anything!
