    Which Value resort is the nicest?

    Hello Lacey!
    Disney's Art of Animation is just like walking into your favorite Disney movie. The Little Mermaid, Finding Nemo, The Lion King and Cars all make up different sections to this resort. Boasting the largest pool on Disney property complete with underwater sounds, Art of Animation has lots of wonderful themed areas that will make it hard to leave your resort to visit the parks.  This resort is mostly made up of Family Suites with the exception of The Little Mermaid section which has standard rooms. For any Disney movie lover, this is the place to stay just check out the animation in the lobby.  Here you can see character from the 4 different movies from conception to the end product, check out Ursula see wasn't always the sea witch we know and love.
    POP Century is a close second in the value category. This resort celebrates all the fun of the 50s through the 90s with each section depicting classic icons of its area.  The main pool in the 60's section is among my family's favorites at Walt Disney World and is themed with "Flower Power." These resorts also don't share bus lines, unless you are visiting during a crowded time of the year, so this is a plus over staying at the All Stars who all share bus lines.  This is always subject to change, but definitely a plus for staying at either of these resorts.
    In my opinion if you are going to stay at a Value Resort, Art of Animation is my top choice with POP Century being a close second.  Since they are the newest of the Value Resorts, there is much less wear and tear that is evident with the ALL Star Resorts.  I hope this helps and please let us know if we can answer any more of your questions!

    Best Wishes!
