Staff were amazingly helpful but had awful holiday due to booking through TUI
The Disney staff at this resort was amazing. After travelling for 22 hours we arrived to find that TUI had not booked our room and tickets with Disney as they were supposed to and left us stranded. Thankfully the amazing staff at all star sports were able to squeeze us in last minute for the night so that we could rest. They helped us make necessary calls to TUI to attempt to fix our problem. Unfortunately even with all the effort the Disney staff put in we had an awful holiday. We were left by TUI for 2 days without tickets or accommodation and haven’t received any compensation for this. I wouldn’t recommend TUI as your holiday provider as we had so many issues in their ‘care’. It was a lovely resort and lovely people, I would love to go back with another holiday provider.
My go to choice of a resort, especially during a RunDisney weekend
I’ve stayed at the resort for the second time this year, during a RunDisney weekend (I’ve stayed at the resort for both Princess and Springtime Surprise weekends). While I’ve read reviews of those who think it’s the least favorite from the three All Star resorts, I cannot see why. I’ve stayed at a standard room at building 7 (Touchdown buildings area), and enjoyed every minute. It’s a quite area, but close enough to the main building. There is a small pool nearby (and the main pool is not far away either), and each time I was at the pool, there was almost no one there. There is also a laundry facility near this pool. The room was a typical Disney’s value resorts room. Clean, spacious (especially since I was traveling solo, and didn’t use the Murphy bed), and as always with lots of USB outlets. The resort is also within a walking distance from the McDonald’s. And I actually had breakfast there twice. While the food court at the resort has ample variety (and I ate there twice too), what’s a vacation without a McDonald’s? Two tips. Always ask if they might accommodate you early, if you arrive before check-in time. While it is not guaranteed that they’ll find a room, the front desk will do the effort. If there is something that is worth the 5 stars review by itself, is arriving at the resort after a 14 hours flight, and having your room ready within moments. While there are three different All Star resorts, you can use the facilities of each one of the. You can visit, for example, each of the three pools. Definitely a great value for money choice.
Budget and decent Disney Hotel
The grounds were great especially for sports lover kids! The pool was big enough and remained open till 11pm which was very convenient after a long day at the Parks. The only turn down was the food. Our six days there had many repetitions not to speak about healthy food... The buses to the parks were right outside and very often which was great. Overall it was a pleasant experience!
Great stay with all the necessary ammenities
Nice updated rooms. Really like the new trundle beds that are full size mattresses but move out of the way to give more living space during the day. The table and chairs under the trundle make lunch time/ snack time easier for a family while still having the extra sleeping space. Room had a coffee maker and fridge were convenient.
Good moderate Disney hotel
This is a very good hotel when trying to save a few dollars for your Disney trip. The positives are as usual the bus service to and from the parks and Disney Springs. There's a cool digital photo op available in the hotel lobby. All Star Sports is the first of the moderate hotels along the All Star resorts (Sports + Music + Movies) so consider that if you want a "quicker" arrival and return to and from the parks. It's not a 4 star hotel in comparison to legit 4 star hotels but given the context of the hotel you know you're getting, this is a 4 star for its value. Preventing it from a 5 is the fact that A/C is motion sensored. Meaning when you're sleeping, the AC and/or fan is liable to cut off since it's not sensing motion. A pet peeve of mine. Even moreso in the summer when the temps are blazing. It's not fun to have the ac cut off while you're sleeping. I found a hack for this though (just search on YouTube "how to bypass air conditioner motion sensor) and was able to sleep like a baby the rest of my trip after the first night. Also another negative is the walls are a bit thin, meaning if you have a noisy family or neighbor next to you, you're likely to hear them. Those are my only two grievances though. There is no microwave in the rooms. Only a pretty small fridge. You'll have to walk to the food court to warm any food and you will have to be cerebral in any food you need refrigerated since the room fridge isn't exactly spacious. The rest of the resort was great. If you're like me, you are spending your day mainly at the parks anyway so this hotel does it's job in that it feeds you and sleeps you. The food court is typical standard food that Disney has been serving for decades now. If you are a foodie and want great experiences, you're better off looking elsewhere to eat. If you just need something to satisfy your appetite, it's a good food court. The hotel's wifi was pretty good throughout my duration as well. Nice pool area (not as nice as some of the higher priced Disney hotel pools but a pool is a pool). Gift shop has good Disney merch and trip necessities. All in all, I enjoyed my stay and so long as I'm not rich, I'll always utilize the moderate Disney hotels for my Disney trips. Especially when staying at a moderate Disney hotel gets you early morning access to the park just like the higher resort hotels do.
