Plenty for the Price

Looking at the comparison between the Disney World Value Resorts, you should first notice that the All Star Resorts were the first Value properties built in Disney World and other than the theme used throughout, they have a very similar configuration. At each of these locations you have everything needed on your vacation but you might not have everything you want. None of the Walt Disney World Value Resorts have Water Slides or any other water fun amenities other than swimming pools and maybe a shallow play area for the toddlers. They all have an arcade, a jogging track and an outdoor playground for the kids to enjoy if you are looking to get away from the water for awhile.

Transportation

Pop Century and Art of Animation are set apart because they have their own private bus line. This means that a bus picks you up and does not stop at the other properties before dropping you off at your final destination. The All Star Disney World Value Resorts, at least during some of the off-peak times of the year, actually share a bus line. For example, if you are staying at Sports, when the bus picks you up, you might have to stop at the other 2 properties before heading on your merry way. This can lead to additional time so make sure you add this time into your schedule. The buses pickup and drop you off in this resort order: Sports, Music then on to Movies. As you get to the busy seasons, you do not have to be as concerned about Sharing the travel arrangements as Disney will send buses directly to and from the properties to the parks.

Rooms and Suites

All of the Disney World Value Resorts have more rooms than you think they could ever fill but during the busiest seasons, you will find that they fill up rather quickly. The standard room configuration is about the same across all of the properties with 260 square feet of living space, 2 double beds, television and a nice bathroom, similar to a regular hotel room. If you want to stay at a Value Resort in Disney World but are interested in having a little more space, Family Suites are available at only 2 of these resorts, the All Star Music and the Art of Animation. In fact, if you look at the numbers, the Art of Animation hotel has many more Suites that standard rooms.
