    We have only stayed at the all star movies and all star music, but we loved them both. We figure that maybe someday we might spend a more money to stay someplace a bit nicer, but for now we are happy with the value and use the extra money in the parks :p015: Also I think at this point Katelyn would love the value, so we will stick with that for now.

    You know? We all fall into that sort of thinking, "a nicer place" but I honestly think that WDW offers the very best available at every price point. I don't think the GF is any nicer than All Stars for the money spent.

    Does that make sense?

    It's a matter of priorities, and money sure, but staying at a value resort brings us the same WDW quality as staying at a deluxe. :yes:

    I completely agree with that Tink. Last year it cost us around £350 more to stay at POR for two weeks compared to ASMo for two weeks and I would say that the extras you got at POR were worth the extra £350. Much more than that and I would have been just as happy to stay at ASMo.

    The thing I like is that circumstances have made us lucky enough to be able to 'upgrade resorts' with each stay but I would have absolutely no problem with staying at a 'value' again as I loved our stays at ASMo.

    I've stayed at:

    Club Lake Villas (part of Disney Convention Center, which became the Disney Institute...)
    Yacht Club--both club level and deluxe rooms
    Boardwalk Inn
    Coronado Springs Resort--water view
    Pop Century

    I like all of them for different reasons! :lol:
