Mom And Daughter Resort Room

    Last year I brought my children to All Star Sports and we really enjoyed it. We're planning to go there again in August - but am second-guessing and might want to try Pop Century. Would that be just as cool and fun - maybe even better?

    Hi Laura,

    The Moms Panel was recently polled on our “Top Pick” for Disney Value Resorts and Disney’s Pop Century was voted the favorite out of all of them. My family stayed at All-Star Sports in '08 and the kids really enjoyed it. Based on all of the recommendations from fellow Panelists, we're trying one night at Pop Century this Fall.

    While at the Resort, here are some fun things to check out with your kids:

    *The bowling pin icons tower more than 65 feet high. A regulation bowling pin is 15 inches tall.
     
    *If you count the giant bowling pin icons, there are nine standing around the resort. Where's the tenth? It's actually the bowling pin pool in the courtyard!

    *Take a closer look at the pool deck around the bowling pin pool and you'll spot the triangular lane markings that are seen on bowling alleys everywhere.
     
    *The table soccer players are more than 12 feet tall, and the "toy" ball is more than two-and-one-half feet in diameter.

    *In the 1960s area, giant "thumbprints" can be spotted on the ears of the elephant peeking out of the giant Play-Doh canister.

    *The giant Big Wheel icon can "accommodate" a child rider that weighs up to 877 pounds (or so says the sticker on the towering riding toy). That matches the stickers that were affixed to the original Big Wheel toys of the 1970s that designated a "recommended child weight."

    *The 1970s courtyard pays tribute to the age of disco, with a motion-based disco light mounted in the middle of the courtyard. This color-changing light sends streams of light across the '70s-inspired outdoor "dance floor."

    Have a wonderful vacation,
