Inspired by the magic of Disney Movies, Disney’s All-Star Movies resort is one of the popular value resorts at Walt Disney World. The resort has 1,920 guest rooms and is located near Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Blizzard Beach water park. Families will enjoy the whimsy of this brightly colored movie land.

The resort features Giant icons from many favorite Disney movies and sets the scene making the perfect photo spot for guests. Colossal images from “101 Dalmatians,” “Toy Story,” “Fantasia,” “The Mighty Ducks” and “The Love Bug” decorate the resort hotel. Pongo and Perdita from “101 Dalmatians” and Buzz Lightyear from “Toy Story” tower more than 35 feet tall. Buzz’s partner Woody sits 25 feet tall in his super-size cowboy hat. “Herbie” the famous love bug is approximately five times his normal size. Giant sorcerers’ hats, spell books, brooms and buckets decorate the “Fantasia” area, and “The Mighty Ducks” section scores with giant hockey sticks, goalie nets and duck-shaped hockey masks.

All-Star Movies, like all Disney resorts, is smoke-free. Designated outdoor smoking areas are indicated on the Resort Map.

Tips From TheMouseForLess Members

TheMouseForLess Interesting Facts about the resort

The resort tax at all of the value resorts except Pop Century is 13%. Pop Century and all moderate and deluxe resorts are located in another county and you’ll pay only 12.5% tax.

There are great statues on property like Herbie, 101 Dalmatians and all the characters from toy story. It is located closest to the Animal Kingdom. – Lori Schuster

The pool area was power-washed every morning. – Traci Lourenco

TheMouseForLess Room Request Tips

We stayed in room 9701 (Building#9 Toy Story). When we opened the room door, we were in Andy’s room. The kids LOVED IT. It was also a very short walk to the snack bar and store –Green Family

If you want to be close to the large pool and the food court and bus area, request the 101 Dalmatians or Toy Story areas of the hotel. – Michelle Petersen

We actually did not get our requests. I had requested the Toy Story section and ground floor and we got the Mighty Ducks and 3d floor. It ended up being the best room. We had the most beautiful view of the duck pool and it was really quite. I ended up loving the location and was glad for unanswered requests! – Amy McKnight

It is $15 a day extra for the toy story building because of it’s proximity to the lobby. Ask for a room closest to the food court otherwise you will have a long walk back to your room every night. – Lori Schuster

TheMouseForLess Hidden Treasures

I thought the Herbie section was great it had the actual Herbie car that was in the MK parade in the 70’s. It also had some fountains and a hammock to relax in. My children really loved it and we almost missed it. – Amy McKnight

The lobby had a nice theater section for the kids to watch the Disney Channel while we had boarding passes printed, etc. – Michelle Petersen

TheMouseForLess Tips for Romance

For seclusion from others, try the farthest building in the back. They are usually quieter there. – Raven Williams

I wouldn’t recommend this resort for romantic getaways as it is often noisy and filled to the brim with small children. – Venus Windmiller

TheMouseForLess Tips for Families

Explore all this resort has to offer. There is a playground. The small kiddie pool was great. My three-year-old loved it. The Toy Story section was great for photo ops. – Amy McKnight

If you want to save money on breakfast, I would suggest packing some self-serve cereal bowls and just purchase small containers of milk from the food court each morning. This way, your family can eat quickly and you aren’t out a lot of money for breakfast. More time to enjoy the parks! – Michelle Petersen

TheMouseForLess Tips for Large Travel Groups

Ask in advance if rooms can be blocked off so that the group will be housed together. A group may sometimes be located in the preferred buildings without the additional charge. A free upgrade is nice. – Raven Williams

TheMouseForLess Tips for Guests with Special needs

Make this request for any special need when you book your reservation. Call one-week prior to make sure your request is prominently listed on your form. If you find out when you check in your special need request has not been honored, ask to talk to a supervisor at the front desk. This has happened to me a few times. Once I talk with a supervisor and point out the request was on my original form, they reassign me to a room that meets my needs. – Raven Williams

TheMouseForLess Tips for WDW Newbies

The check out is great, if you don’t have any charges to your room there is nothing to do and if you do have charges they will send you an itemized statement of all your charges and you still don’t have to go up front unless you don’t agree with the charges. – Amy McKnight

Put on your sunscreen! The bus stop has no cover and can be hot on a sunny day. – Renee Walker

Beware of credit card scammers! Several scams have been perpetrated on unsuspecting tourists staying at hotels or resorts in the Orlando area in recent years, including Disney resorts. The first involves a phone call to your resort room in which you are informed that there is a problem with the credit card info you provided the hotel; you are then asked to give your card information again, including name and address. If you receive such a call, inform the caller that you will talk to the front desk personally about the problem and hang up. If you are convinced the call may be legitimate, call the front desk from your resort phone or visit the front desk to inquire. The second scam involves flyers left on your resort room door advertising cheap pizza for delivery. Those who call the number and give the requested credit card info with their order soon find that not only does no pizza arrive, but a huge string of unauthorized purchases show up on their credit card.

TheMouseForLess Tips for Budget Travelers

The toiletries in the gift shop are overpriced. Double check your personal care items before you leave home. –Green Family

Invest in the resort mugs. It is worth it to get your refills when you return to the hotel from the theme parks, as well as any meals you may eat at the hotels. The small bottles of water that are offered with the kids meals are great for taking with you to the parks. – Michelle Petersen

We had ordered food and drinks from Garden Grocer which were delivered within 1/2 hr arrival at the resort. – Traci Lourenco

The value resorts are about the cheapest possible on Walt Disney World property. Use codes for discounts on packages and AAA for discounts for room only reservations. – Raven Williams

Both code discounts and AAA discounts on room only reservations can be booked through your The Magic For Less Travel Agent.

TheMouseForLess Tips for Luxury Travelers

None of the value resorts include full-service restaurants. But if you have a car and are looking for a nice sit down meal the try a short drive to Coronado Springs Resort to dine at Maya Grill or Animal Kingdom Lodge for dinner at Boma or Jiko.
