I probably wouldn't go back to Caribbean Beach. The rooms are really spread apart from the Food Court. If you stay at a extreme end of the resort on either side, you have quite a walk to get to the Food Court.

Yikes! We're staying there for the first time in June. I was afraid of it being to spread out. For the time we are there, there was no preferred rooms available. Are the buses atleast helpful?

The one I wouldn't want to stay at again would have to be All Star Sports...but DH and DS would stay there again in a minute! I like "pretty" resorts with lots of pretty landscaping etc. The resort was great but it was obviously sporty. Not my personal taste but again the boys in my family love it there. They love being able to play on the football field, climb on the giant sports stuff etc.

All Star Music resort. The rooms were VERY SMALL! The food at the food court was not so good. I hated the pool. I believe it only went up to 4ft. NEVER would I go back there! :bluecry:

I couldn't tell you about the bus system at CB, we had our own car there so we drove to all the parks ourselves.

I wouldn't stay at POR Riverside, Magnolia Bend again, unless they refurbished. It was dull in theme, in need of attention on the exterior and nothing special at all inside the averge sized room. We had a good FL resident rate of $89 so it was no biggie, but if I was paying full price at peak season, I would have been really, really upset.

I wasn't a big fan of Pop Century...I won't totally count it out, but it's not high on my list of places to stay.

The values are small. Not really made for the family of 4. Maybe just 2 or 3 max would do okay. And a little additional note about the POR resort I posted about earlier...just last month we stayed at Alligator Bayou and it was terrific. So ALL of POR isn't bad.

Pop Century is a bit too "Pop" for my taste.

Man, I'm starting to feel a bit like a whiner...at least I get to stay on property sometimes.

I wish I could stay on property whenever I come down so when I can stay onsite, even at Pop, I'm happy to be there. :trooper:

We stayed at POP Century on this last trip. It was only the 2 of us and we had plenty of room. It was definitely a great value. However, I can understand why a family of 4 or 5 would not like it. For them it would be too small. I would never stay at Grovesnor Resort (which is located right around Downtown Disney) - it was absolutely horrible. The guest services person yelled at us and we had problems with our shower (which we reported and were never fixed). Anyway I agree with you about POR- Magnolia - I stayed there during a hurricane and I really wasn't comfortable at all.

Figaro - We stayed in Aruba at Carribbean Beach and we had a short walk to the food court. We just went over the bridge and there it was. I can see where some of the locations would be a bit of a walk, but it should be fine. We usually hopped on the bus at the food court because we were eating breakfast there. I didn't feel like we had to wait too long to get the right bus. I don't have experience with other resorts though. I would assume most resorts you have to wait a little while because of the number of guests, stops, etc. I loved the resort. Hope you have the same experience.

We have stayed at almost every resort on property since 1988, and i can't think of one we would not return to except for the AllStar and Pop Century resorts. Too small and crowded.

We had one of the most relaxing stays on property at CBR. We stayed at Jamaica - like Aruba, just a stroll over the bridge in the morning - well recommended.

All Stars - we have had some good holidays at All Star Music, but last time said we wouldn't stay there again - we like the more natural theming of the moderates. Guess we are fortunate to be able to afford that, but All Stars do immerse you in the Disney mood, so in my opinion, all property resorts are pretty good!

I'll find out soon. I got a good deal and it included stay at all star music. Biggest complaints I hear are size of room and that hey are usually very crowded.

I'm going at the end of Sept. So I doubt it will be very crowded.
