Comparing AllStar resorts

I'm thinking of staying in a value resort next time as the amount of time I spent in my room or on the resort at CBR this trip didn't warrant the extra cost.
I've been to view rooms at Pop Century ( just so I could use the Skyliner!) and loved those. Are the AllStar resorts much different (as they seem to be lower cost) and is there really any difference between Music, Sports and Movies?

I'm sure one of them has had its refurb, one is being done and one hasn't been started yet if that makes a diff to you? Rooms look similar to POP.

Yes Movies is the one that's already refurbed. We are booking a one night stay due to Norwegian moving our outbound flight forward and found it's cheapest direct through US Disney site. And strangely although Movies costs a lot more per night on the UK site, all three cost the same on US site!

Were here now and staying at All Star sports, checking out today l, booked it because it was the cheapest of the three. Rooms are basic and in need of a refurb but clean and comfy all the same, would happily stay here again. The main pool is huge, loads going on and plenty of loungers, food court is good enough with mobile ordering, and were in a preferred room so literally 3 mins from the food court and buses. Buses very frequent. I would honestly just go with the cheapest because resort wise theyre all pretty much the same!

Were flying tomorrow and staying at Movies ( previously stayed at POR Riverside and French Quarter). We were too late for the dining plan this year hence going for a value.
Will feedback in 2 weeks if youre not planning on booking before them?
