First, look over the new features in MOP.

Next, you want to know if it lives up to the hype. It does. The new maps are stunningly beautiful and the sheer amount of group/ solo content implemented in MOP makes it worth the box price in quantity, as well as quality.

As of 5.1, new things in MOP:

At 90:

13 scenarios (3-man instances, instant queue as any role is ok)
3 T14 raids (6 bosses + 6 bosses + 4 bosses): also all available in LFR (easy-mode looking for raid queue system)
9 dungeons (heroics are now back to LK style fast AOE runs, not like Cata's slow agonizing runs)
New challenge mode for dungeons (harder than heroic mode. timed runs with gear scaling down to 463, and added boss mechanics/ mobs)
2 T14 world bosses
2 new battlegrounds and 1 new arena
Your own farm
Some very interesting leveling quests in MOP zones with completely new mechanics
Many many many dailies (more on this later)
Brawlers' Guild (think Fight Club)
Treasure hunting: lots of rare NPCs in MOP that can give fun items, also rare lootable items that are BOA weapons/ jewelry or grays that vendor for 10-200g.
For hunters: rare beasts in MOP must now be tracked and found; they cannot be seen by non-hunters
Archaeology has been remade to be easier
Not requiring 90:

Black market auction house (NPCs sell rare items/ mounts/ pets)
Pet battles (surprisingly addictive and a whole new game by itself)
New race (pandaren are beautifully textured and have great animations. They are accessible even without MOP)
New class (monks need MOP to access)
*Note: There is some controversy over the dailies in WoW. There is a huge number of these, and in fact, all VP gear for this first tier is gated behind reputation vendors. Currently, the only way to gain rep with them is to do dailies. Some factions are gated behind other factions, meaning you need to get to Revered with the first faction before you can start doing dailies for the two factions gated behind it.

After community feedback, Blizzard made the following changes:

at Revered, you can buy a consumable item that permanently allows all characters on your account to gain rep at double the speed with that faction
In 5.2, Blizzard will be letting the first dungeon you do each day give a small amount of rep of your choice.
