    Stayed at POFQ last (first) trip & wondering if going to a value resort, which is alot more walking is worth the $400 that I might save. My dd will be 7 & we are going to spend more time at the resort this trip. Will we be disappointed?

    Hi, Charmaine!

    I am a huge fan of French Quarter, and since you have stayed there I will not go into detail how fun this resort is.  However, I also really enjoy Pop Century, a great Value Resort.  Here is what you will find to be different when changing from a Moderate to a Value:

    -Rooms are smaller at a Value Resort, and beds are full (double beds) vs. the queen beds at Moderate Resorts
    -Food Court will be much busier due to more guests
    -No pool slide
    -Only bus transportation, no boat transportation to Downtown Disney like you had at French Quarter
    -A bit more hustle and bustle, not as relaxing

    Now, that said, I really enjoy our stays at Pop Century.  We request water view rooms in the 50's section where it is generally very quiet, with a 5-7 minute walk to the food court and bus stops.  You still get all the perks of staying on property and 24/7 Disney fun!   You really cannot go wrong with either choice, so good luck deciding.
