    stayed first tm at PO riverside,coming bk in oct nxt year,thinking of staying at Pop.We don't stay at resort much,for diff in price do you think I would be dis-appointed that I didn't stay at mod.resort? Thanks have a blessed day.

    If you're just using your room as a place to sleep and shower, then it really doesn't matter where you stay. However, there are amenities that the moderate resorts that are not available at the values. I'll list them below. If none of these items are of particular importance to you, then by all means save the money and stay at the Pop:

    - Pools. The moderate pools have towels available, the values do not. The moderate pools have more themeing and more "plus" factors such as fountains and slides.
    - Dining. The values only have the food court. The moderates also have lounges or table service restaurants.
    - Size of the room. The values are small, with small bathrooms, and limited storage space.
    - Recreation. Many of the moderate hotels have biking or boating available. One moderate has a health club. None of these options are available at the value resorts.
    - Exterior atmosphere. The value resorts have a "fun" feeling. The moderates have a more "relaxed" feeling.

    I hope this helps you think about your decision.
