So we were planning on staying at Wilderness lodge on our next trip. We were going to go 6 nights 7 days. Now we are thinking of going 9 nights 10 days. So to do that we would have to switch resorts due to cost. Which value resort is the best? We have never stayed at a value resort. Any input would be great!!
Stayed at Sports, it was neat, but I would def pick another if we did value again. Hear great things about Pop. - DizneyGirl  528.4 #9 10:03PM
I have stayed at all star movie and pop. Loved them both. My kids loved movies because they knew all the characters. I loved pop because of the nostalgia :). Pop is good for fast bus service. Movies is at the end of three drops so it is a little longer ride. If u want to know anything specific just ask :) - mzdisnee  421.7 #14 10:05PM
@mzdisnee I was thinking movies or pop. I really don't know about the whole bus thing I hate being on the bus more then you need too. How is the food at both of them? - Ariel42  252.8 #24 10:29PM
The pop seems to be closer to the parks. The food was great at both. The selection at pop was great when we were there in April. We do the quick service dining plan and loved having dessert with lunch and dinner. The both have large food courts and the lines go pretty fast. Loved that you could get a whole pizza with two quick service meals. - mzdisnee  421.7 #14 10:39PM
Thanks for the info!! I will take all the advice I can get! - Ariel42  252.8 #24 10:41PM
I've stayed at All Star Music and it was ok, but I think Pop would be nicer and newer. - ally  503.9 #10 10:41PM
@ally thanks!! It looks like it could be pop for us! - Ariel42  252.8 #24 10:43PM
We can't afford to stay anywhere but value resorts. We stayed at pop three times and everytime was great! I highly recommend it๎— - Schramke  402.7 #15 10:44PM
@Ariel why don't u stay at the new value resort that opens in May? Art of Animation I believe?? - toogrumpy  141.3 #49 10:44PM
I'm in the same boat as Schramke & can only afford the value resorts. I have stayed at Music, Movies & Pop and the best by far has been Pop. I always try for there first now. Music is my second choice. I have never stayed at Sports so I can't rate that one. The one I will never stay at again is Movies. Never. The last time I stayed there the room was dirty & dingy. Bugs were in the bathroom and the whole room smelled really bad. The staff moved me to another room and it was a little better (no bugs at least) but they complained that I complained. I was not impressed and I did not feel "welcome". Others have had a wonderful time at Movies so this was just my experience. Try for Pop. Great pools & service is great. - Tinkerbell1265  440.4 #13 10:53PM
@toogrumpy we looked at the new resort but only family suites will be open then. They are not opening the standard rooms till december. I would of loved to stayed there because the standard rooms are decorated like The Little Mermaid. For the price yoy pay for a suite you might as well stay at a deluxe. The price difference was like $300.00 - Ariel42  252.8 #24 10:54PM
I heard from someone that was just there in September that Pop had just been remodeled recently. That's where we're staying in January. =) - eeyorefan107l  280.2 #22 11:32PM
Good to know! Thanks - Ariel42  252.8 #24 11:33PM
You're welcome! =) - eeyorefan107l  280.2 #22 11:36PM
Pop century was good. Stayed there 2006, my first trip to WDW. - dvcfam4  113.2 #3092 12:28AM
If you're staying at value resorts, Pop Century is the best choice. Hope you have a great trip! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #16 12:30AM
I love Pop! - PixieDust76  74.1 #71 3:02AM
We enjoy movies and always request toy story. Both of my kids are big fans and they love the courtyard with the huge buzz and woody. I think food court is the same with all value resorts good variety. It counts as quick service on meal plan, so if you have refillable mug grab a bottle of water for the next day. - Bakerjars  236.7 #28 5:36AM
@Ariel. Did not know that about the standard rooms. Thank-you!! - toogrumpy  141.3 #49 9:31AM
Thanks everyone knew I could count on you! - Ariel42  252.8 #24 9:34AM
I've stayed at Pop 3 times, the last was in March. The room was remodeled, CM's have always been pleasant & helpful. The buses run good, even when very crowded. I like the food court, has something for everyone. It's my daughters favorite resort, so it's our 1st choice when the budget is tight. I think it is worth upgrading to a preferred room, it's not that much more money & puts you close to everything. - perdita  70.7 #73 10:10AM
Agree with above about Pop. - jacdanfan  5955.2 #8 10:51AM
I've stayed at Pop quite a few times and always enjoyed it! - tina94  182.7 #40 11:26AM
We just left Movies, and though it was OK, I def prefer Pop. Pool and rooms seemed much smaller at Movies. - mrsincredible  733.7 #5 11:32AM
