    Question Pop or All Star Music

    This is my 1st posting (yay!) I've seen forums with "Pop or ASMovies", my apologize if there's one like this.

    In short: Graduation trip, two 19 yr olds alone, on budget, don't care about thin walls or loud toliets, going in early august, which happens to be around my b-day. So which is resort is better for "us"? And which honestly has the best bus line? (i think Pop does according to other sites' reviews) Thanks to all those who will answer.

    P.S.: Is the plus Dining package worth it?

    The Dining Package is definitley worth it.
    I like All Star Movies better, but yeah, I think Pop has the better buses, since you don't have to wait for all three hotels.

    I love All Star Music, it's really cute. it has it's own bus at some of the parks, but there are times when you have to get on the bus and stop at Sports before getting to music. I'm staying at Pop at the end of August for my birthday(20). Pop has it's own bus, but there always seems to be a line, so if you want a bus with a short wait I'd probably go for the All Star, unless you find you like a certain building of Pop.
    Dining plan is worth it. I'm using it for my next trip and there is no way, I'd be able to afford some of the places that I'm eating on my own.

    Pop Century is the way to go. I know a lot of people rave about AS Music, Movie and Sports, but Pop is really a riot! Dedicated busses and high capacity. Don't know anything about the meal plan though

    I've stayed at ASMo twice, and I'd have to disagree with you about it being a short wait for the bus.
    At the end of the day, I've seen the line extend past the railings where it supposed to be.

    Been to both and prefer Pop much more. Newer and you don't share a bus. More pools and a better food court. Plus it is closer to everything unlike the AS's tucked in the bottom corner of the park.

    I would definitely choose Pop over ASMu. The resort is newer and in better shape, plus the buses are not as crowded.

    Although I haven't done the MYW dining (because we are AP holders) I hear it's a great deal. Plus, I believe it is free for stays between mid August and the end of September if you're purchasing tickets during your stay. Make sure you ask about it when you book your room because they won't tell you about it otherwise.

    Have fun!

    Yeah, the dates for free dining start on August 13th and I think end on September 30th, but I might be wrong about the last date.

    We loved our stay at the Pop, what a fun place. And the dining plan could not have been MORE worth it... we easily saved 400 dollars by using it.

    KUNGALOOSH!!!

    Gotta go with Pop century. I am headed back for my second stay there in August. It's clean, new, and just a lot of fun, and the dining plan is sooooo worth it! even if you have to pay for it, it's still about 1/3 of what it would actually cost to eat in those restaurants
