Just because you are staying at a Value Resort instead of a Deluxe doesn’t mean that you won’t have a lot of neat things to check out - see http://blog.touringplans.com/2014/07/07/unexpected-extras-disney-world-value-resorts/ for more info
Also, Pop and AoA have dedicated park busses. Most, (if not all?) Deluxe resorts do not. This has baffled me for so long now. I’ve stayed at Pop 5 times this year and am approaching my annual Sept BWV stay. It annoys the crap out of me that I’ll be sharing a bus again.
Totally agree - we stayed at POP last trip, but ate dinner one night at BC. The bus at BC was the worst of our whole trip.
