They aren't bad if you aren't spending alot of time in the resort. ^_^
They are small for us because we have 2 young kids who go to bed early and 1 still naps. We spend alot of time in the room and it can get a little claustrophobic. With the Deluxe and DVC rooms, atleast we have a balcony/patio to go out on while they sleep.

That does sound like it could get cramped for you. I am taking my mom and daughter. So that means I share one bed with my daughter and my mom gets the other. Shouldn't be an issue.

I think my daughter will be to excited to take a nap. So I will just have to take some rest breaks during the day so it doesn't completely wear her out.

Like Figaro said, you really don't spend that much time in your room compared to when you stay at hotels most anywhere else outside of WDW.

I used to nap in my stroller I've heard. I would just zonk out whenever I needed a nap, and my parents would take me on rides asleep so I'd wake up and randomly be on a ride and that would put an end to my crankiness of after nap-time blues.

Of course this is my parents opinion, not mine since I don't remember this. I do remember that my teddy bear got to go on most rides with me.

And the rooms arent THAT small you still have enough room and they are brightly decorated so get a happy feeling.

Well, I’ve never had a bad time at the Resorts, only because I've stayed at the hotels on the Monorail *The Contemporary, The Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, & The Polynesian Resort* and when I stayed at them, they had great service.
*something about the Contemporary that most people don't know about is that sometime in the afternoon(You might want to ask a CM at the Contemporary for the time(s) though) there's a cookies(almost every kind of cookie) & milk cart for the little kiddies... I'd wait by the elevators... But, then agian, you didn't hear it from me...*

We stayed at Carribean Beach in early May and it was wonderful!!!! I think sometimes it's really the luck of the draw. Of course, we were very near Old Port Royale (Martinique, bldg 25) which was great. They do have internal bus shuttles to get you around the resort which helps.

We had 8 adults and 1 infant in two rooms at POP in May. It was a bit cramped, but when your party is 8 people and you have to rent two cars, plus eat, staying offsite doesn't save as much money as it might normally. It really was okay though. I slept in the room at night and visited the parks during the day. I would also go back to POP again because it's staying on WDW property. I don't go very often, so I can splurge and stay on property when I do.

I have to say room size does seem to be the biggest thing. But I also think it is party and people size that may dictate this. I would say the Pop Century was not that bad for two people. It may not be that big a deal either if all ya do there is shower, sleep and dress for the parks. That is why we are planning on going there next year. But I also know that surroundings can make the difference in a good vacation and a great one. I have looked at the pictures of the rooms at the moderates.. they don;t seem to be that much bigger then what the Pops' were. (Has anyone been to both that care to comment here for me??) I was looking at the Coronado Springs resort.. and for only $500 more we can go there. The Disney video shows the pool and the pyramid... and it looks REALLY cool.

The value resort (Pop, All Stars) rooms are 260 square feet whereas the moderates vary somewhat; Caribbean beach rooms are 340 sq. ft. (largest of the moderates) and Coronado are 314 sq feet.

Ahhh.. Ok... rekin there is a sizable difference... (I guess pun intended..*L*) Of course something to think about ... a value resort is exactly that... Value. more bang for your buck, so with the smaller rooms they can fit more people in..*L* But all in all, we had NO complaints about the Pop.. I liked it. The lobby was very cool, all the dining/shopping/entertainment(game room) was sentrally located. I think the biggest thing is the preffered room... but then again, only one section out of the 4 eras covered (50's, 60's, 70's, 80's)did not have it's own pool, so really it wasn;t that bad.

It's amazing how much difference a few square feet make! ^_^ We've stayed at the All Star Sports and most of the moderates. I would definately pick a mod over a value. But we have 2 kids, 1 still pack & play and stroller bound. We're constantly tripping over each other and everything else in the room.

Also, the moderates have better themed pools and slides. Since we don't like to eat at the food courts too much, it's also nice having a full serve restaurant on property. (Again, with 2 small kids we spend a lot of time at the resort. Two adults probably don't spend as much time there. So it would probably be much different for you)

And I have to add a disclaimer that we are also DVC members and are very spoiled by our 1 bedroom villa that we usually get at the BCV. But I still love staying at the moderates and deluxes sometimes too!!

I agree. I would recommend what a friend told me to do and that's take some masking tape and tape out the 260 sq feet and then in a larger square tape out 320 feet and see which square you'd feel more comfortable living in. Remember, the square footage includes the area around the sinks and such, so its not just the "bedroom".

Honestly, I think the Moderates and Values don't feel that different in size. (Our party is DH, DS11 and myself). I think there's a substantial difference between the Deluxes and the Moderates, not so much between the Values and the Moderates, aside from the grounds.

We usually stay at VWL on rented DVC points on weeknights and a Value on the weekends. We thought ASMo was quieter and cleaner than our stay was at POR. Really, I'd return to any WDW on-site property for the immersion experience. The only one I didn't really care for was Saratoga Springs. I didn't think the theme was very compelling and seeing the Downtown Disney hotels spoiled the escape-from-the-real-world feeling I get at the other WDW resorts.
