    We have stayed at the "Movies Resort".This year we are considering the "POP" or a moderate.The "Movies"seemed to be noisy and very busy.Is the "POP" the same way?


    In my humble opinion...yes.  The value resorts all have a very noisy and busy feel to me, and that's just one reason my family prefers to look elsewhere for accommodations.  If you can swing a moderate resort, I'd definitely do it.  All 4 of them are beautiful and offer something different, and if you're wanting peace and quiet I think you'd be happier there.

    For the most serene atmosphere in a moderate resort, I'd go with one of the Port Orleans Resorts.  Riverside is larger, French Quarter is smaller and more intimate.  I think either of these resorts would offer you what you are looking for.  The food court there is smaller and less crowded.  The pools and buses will also be less crowded, and the pools will have more extensive themeing and some very cool waterslides.  You will also get a larger room, and a mini-fridge and coffee maker included.

    I am not paid to endorse a more expensive resort, I promise!  This is just my honest opinion about my family's preferences.  However, if you do stay at a value resort I would choose the All-Star Sports.  Admittedly the themeing is not exciting to me, but that actually helps in this scenario.  It seems to be somewhat less popular, and thus less crowded.  It's also first on the line for the buses, so you should have less of a crowd in the transportation queue.

    I hope this helps you make your decision.  Have a great vacation!
