Reviews of Disney's All-Star Sports Resort At Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort gigantic football helmets, megaphones, surfboards and basketballs team up with value prices to score a winning Walt Disney World vacation. Guests find themselves greeted by bright colors and the whimsy of giant Coke cups big enough to hold a resort swimming pool. The 1,920-room family resort has five sports themes including football, baseball, basketball, tennis and surfing. The sports theme is continued in guest rooms, which feature sports-themed bedspreads, megaphone light fixtures and artwork depicting sports scenes.

    Disney’s All Star Resorts can be considered as one resort with three separate themes. Busses are often shared between Sports, Music and Moview, and all three are sister resorts with similar amenities. Since I visit Disney somewhat frequently, I go to a lot of Value resorts for my short (and cheap!) trips. Disney Value resorts “are what they are” which is a decent place to sleep and stay while enjoying all of the magical benefits of being on Disney property. What I like most about Sports is that it is usually the first bus stop in the AllStar Complex and there are several room locations which are close to the parking lot which really helps when one has a car and is driving around a lot. My most recent stay in Sports was January 2011 and I got the exact location I wanted, which was at the end of the Football building next to the parking lot. I wanted this because I prefer the food court at Music because they had a toss to order salad option which is not available at all food courts and Music is just across the parking lot. Plus I had a car that I was using and wanted to be close to it. Disney value resorts tend to be very crowded all the time with a high level of occupancy year round, and they’re often not very quiet. (Regardless of how much you pay for a hotel room, the noise level is going to be determined by your neighbors.) Room sizes are on the smallish size with no coffeemaker or complimentary fridge. Only one sink and two double beds. The room size does seem to get a bit tight on a longer stay, or when more than two people share a room–but for people who want to be on Disney property and are in the parks a lot, the Values are a great place to sleep and store belongings and shower. Pools have no slides, but for a January trip by myself a pool wasn’t important. Most of my time in the room is spent working so I didn’t want to spend the $$ on a Moderate or Deluxe resort.
    Basically, a Disney value is “fine” and kids just love the oversized icons. I really do like Disney’s value resorts and to me there are no bad choices. When you stay at a Value resort, be sure to walk around the property and take pictures. They all just scream DISNEY and are a lot of fun.

    We love it here! Our boys have been here 3x’s and 1 one in a couple of weeks. It’s small but liveable. If you only sleep & shower in your room it’s great. The bus is the best, first of the all stars to be picked up (empty bus!) and the first to be dropped off at night. Surf,football & baseball are the best locations.

    Room Sleeps : 4

    Please Rate The Following On A Scale From 1-10 (10 being the best):
    Don’t Miss: There’s nothing really spectacular here but the theming is a lot of fun if you enjoy sports. Take a walk around the resort and check out the different areas.

    Room Location Suggestion: We were in building 5, room 5242. It was a little hike to the lobby and busses, but not bad at all. The room was very close to the stairs, elevator and the ice machine. It overlooked palmetto bushes and trees… a very relaxing view. It was far enough from the pool that we were not disturbed by pool noise and close enough that it was a short walk.

    The Mouse For Less Tip: We weren’t early risers (we stayed out late every night and slept in in the mornings), so we ate a late breakfast at the resort before leaving for the parks each day. Breakfast was much cheaper than lunch at the parks.

    Comments: For a value resort, this hotel is nice. I prefer Pop Century, but this resort is 2nd on my list of values. The rooms have recently been redone so the furniture, carpeting and drapes are all pretty new. The food court here seemed much smaller than Pop’s but there was a decent selection. Our only “problem” was with high school students at the pool. Our kids (age 10) and any other small children were pretty much shoved to one end of the pool while the older kids (with no chaperones in sight) took over the rest of the pool (throwing a football and playing chicken with one person on the other person’s shoulders). During the day the life guards kept them at bay but after 10, the life guards leave and I had to “move them over” a few times.

    Rate Paid During Your Stay: package with magic your way tickets.

    Room Sleeps : 5

    Don’t Miss: Mt. Mickey (very cute)

    Room Location Suggestion: we were stuck in the last building in the back after requesting a preferred room, Told at check in none were available and we were “downgraded”. Not a good start. Three days into our trip they called and said we could move. As we had three of us already unpacked we declined. And after seeing all the children running around at 2 am in the morning, I am glad we did.

    The Mouse For Less Tip: Nothing, I don’t understand parents who let their children run loose at 2 am. And I am not talking about older children, we saw a lot of kids under the ages of 12.

    Comments: This hotel is the lowest of the low on the Disney scale. Staff was rude, maids barely made the rooms and lots of noise.

    Rate Paid During Your Stay: $66 per night with AAA discount. We booked that day as we were “trapped” in Orlando when our flight was cancelled after our DCL cruise.

    Room Sleeps : 4

    Room Location Suggestion: We were in room 8330, Building 8 (Home Run). It was a third floor room. Was ok for 1 night, but it was quite a hike from the room to the parking lot.

    The Mouse For Less Tip: Refillable Mug. Even though we were only there for 1 night, we did purchase 1 mug. We shared it.

    Comments: We have always stayed at the AllStar Sports. It is good enough for us, since our time in the rooms is minimal. As my kids get older (10 and 14) I can see that the small rooms at the AS Sports will not be sufficient, but it would be ok with 2 small children.
