    If you're likely to use the amenities and enjoy the atmosphere, it's a terrific resort. Haven't stayed there yet, but hope to do a split stay some day with the last two or three nights at the GF.

    For me, it wouldn't be worthwhile for an entire holiday. I'm a DIY person and really don't use the amenities. I'm better served staying elsewhere at WDW and saving the money for a stay the upscale resorts in Las Vegas!

    But it would be nice to experience the GF!

    I didnt REALLY notice that many more amenities :/ I'm feeling I lost out now what does it have that the other ones dont Taja?

    See, I completely agree with that! It seems strange to me that we can stay at a top class hotel in Disney and still have a walk to our room in one of the outside buildings :/ and really nothing AMAZINGLY special over the cheaper places (as much as I like it). In vegas WOW you know it when you spend a bit more on the hotel and then you REALLY wow when you spend a bit more on the room at the hotel.

    I don't know if the GF has more amenities than the other WDW deluxe resorts, Keith. More than the moderate or value resorts, though.

    We spend most of our time at the parks or exploring, so the amenities at the WDW resorts are pretty much wasted on us the first 6 or 7 nights of our visits. We've found we're better off staying at a value or moderate resort for the bulk of our visit, switching to a deluxe the last two or three nights when we slow down a bit!

    I am thinkin that unless you plan on being at your hotel quite a bit and actually using the stuff that is there its a waste of money...

    Im just as happy at POP that I would be anywhere else..but Im a commando...

    And what the enemy will see? They will see the flash of our cannons, and they will hear the ringing of our swords, and they will know what we can do! By the sweat of our brow and the strength of our backs and the courage in our hearts! Gentlemen, hoist the colors!

    I love pop century really do. I've got a special place in my heart for all star movies as it's where we stayed on our first trip but I think pop century has won me over with its location

    i know exactly what you're saying Sara,and Keith and Taja hit the nail on the head too I've had much better value for money and service in other places for the same price BUT you're at WDW and that's why they can charge more- that's why i think the more themed the better, for me anyway. I like staying in pop and all stars too because of that very reason.

    I'm just as happy to be at Pop Century as well

    I have visited and dined at GF many times. I have always had impeccable service! I have never been made to feel like I didn't belong there......however I don't know that I could stay cause I really can't see myself carrying a Wal-mart bag through the lobby

    Hey! If I can carry a CVS bag through the lobbies of the Bellagio, Venetian and Wynn resorts in Las Vegas, you certainly can carry a WalMart bag through the lobby of the GF!

    Regardless of where we stay in Las Vegas, we always toddle to CVS for snacks and stuff on our first day.
