    Going to WDW Jan. 29 - Feb. 5 for the first time with our 3 year old daughter and was just wondering which of the value resorts is the nicest and most worth staying at! Really don't want to be dissapointed! Thanks :)

    Hi Marcia!

    The best Disney Value Resort in my opinion is Pop Century.  It has the best food court on property and it currently has the best bus service by far.  That's because Pop Century has only one bus stop at the resort and it doesn't share buses with any other resort.  I really think that makes getting to and from Pop Century on Disney Transportation a lot easier! 

    The theming is good, but not spectacular; however, I think your 3 year old will love it.  If you want something "more Disney", I would go with All Star Movies which is themed with more Disney characters, etc, but I don't think the hotel is a nice as Pop Century.

    Since you mention that it is your first trip, I highly recommend picking up a copy of the book "The Complete Walt Disney World" by Julie and Mike Neal.  It's a great book for first time visitors as it has just the right amount of information without being overwhelming.  It's also a beautiful book full of color photographs.  It will give you a lot of tips and a good idea on everything there is to do at Walt Disney World.

    Good luck with your decision, and write back if you have any more questions!
