Any of you know the real world difference between what you will see with an 80mm refractor telescope vs an 100mm one?

The 100mm will be slightly nicer for deep sky objects. But not a major difference. My refractor is 60mm. The quality 80 and 100mm refractors are very expensive. You will get more bang for your buck with a reflecting telescope.
