I expected better from Disney.
Writing this from the lobby waiting for my shuttle to fly home as I can't wait to sleep in my own bed with no ear plugs. I needed them every night of our 16 night stay here. Tissue thin walls mean you can hear flushing toilets and other people using the toilets. You'll also be able to hear kids stomping past your room like miniature elephants. Don't forget the massive groups of youth sports groups chanting outside your room early and late. We had the joy of them squealing in their rooms at 2AM on our last night here. I get it's Disney and I didn't expect silence but I didn't expect noise at these levels. I couldn't relax here and I was envious of the guests at moderate resorts we visited on rest days from the parks. Their food offerings are so much better. The food here is coated in either oil or sugar and we chose to go visit other resorts or even the McDonald's down the road to avoid eating here. Not to mention the expense of it. So, being exhausted from lack of sleep and a lot of walking in the parks you'd think we'd be able to nap in the day right? Wrong. We were not informed of random security checks they do of your room. Doesn't matter if you have a sign up. I'm not bothered that they do checks, it was not being informed that annoyed us. So, every nap I tried to have was interrupted. Thank goodness they didn't interrupt me in the tub. When my partner told the woman I was sleeping at one of the occurrences she just seemed annoyed. Can't imagine how annoying it'd be if we had a toddler or something. Transportation to the park was great. However, the buses that go to all the all star resorts get pretty packed. Pretty sure my partner and I got sick from one of the overcrowded buses. It's such a shame really, the room was lovely and the theming is awesome. Bed was super comfy and shower was great. I wouldn't stay here again though. It's put me off staying on Disney property all together. I'd say I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, not just us as a couple wanting some peace and a break from work. I can't imagine trying to keep a sleep schedule with children here. We feel like we need another holiday now to recoup the lack of sleep we got here.
Disney All Star Sports Resort
The All Star Property is very nice. Beautiful property / grounds throughout. If you are in one of the back buildings from the main area it is a bit of a walk. The pool is very nice, not heated. There is no hot tub. There is a baby / toddler wading pool. They do offer a moving by the pool at night, that was very nice to view. The rooms are newly updated. They have barn doors that separate the bedroom / sink area and then the bathroom - tub / shower from the sink area. The beds are very nice and comfortable. The murphy bed was unexpected, but, it is nice to have up during the day to make the room feel larger. There is a coffee maker and small fridge in the room. The rooms / walls are very thin. We heard toilets flushing or showers / tubs running all night long! I don't know if the pipes were right next to our room or what but, you can hear everything it seems like.
Great resort to stay. The room is spacious. The bed and pillows are very comfortable . Plenty of outlets for charging devices. Plenty of towels. Very close to the buses. Also, close to the food court. An absolutely great room and resort. Great service. Highly recommend!
Great for Disney - but I'd pay that bit extra and stay at a "moderate" in future
We've just got back from another trip to WDW - I've personally stayed offsite (years ago) and in the last 5 years I've been 3 times and stayed at each of the All Stars. There's nothing really to criticise about this hotel - it's exactly what you'd expect from a budget Disney resort and does EXACTLY what you'd expect. You get all the perks of a Disney hotel at a low-ish price. It's fantastic for getting to Animal Kingdom and Blizzard Beach - sub 10 mins for both. HS and Epcot are around 20 mins and MK and Disney Springs seem a bit further. These times don't include waiting for a bus which could take 20 mins, the walk to the bus stop from the room (10 mins) and the walk from the bus stop to the resorts (all Stars are the furthest away). Hotel is clean, the rooms are big enough and the facilities/pool great. Food wise there isn't much choice - a quick dining canteen which we used a handful of times. Coming from the UK, we've always had the mantra it doesn't matter what hotel you stay in when you visit Disney as all you use it for is a bed for the night. We've preferred to use extra money on dining and experiences in the parks. However this time, we could only get a booking for All Stars for 10 nights - given we had a 14 day Disney ticket we decided to stay 4 nights at a moderate resort - we stayed at Carribean Beach and oh my gosh I cannot explain the difference it made! Having better dining options at the hotel was amazing (even the mug refill options are significantly better), and the kids had actually healthy meals rather. The pool was brilliant and so much better than All Stars with slides etc. But the best part was location - being so close to the skyliner ( we were in Jamaica) was amazing as it took 5 mins door to door to get to HS, and around 15 mins to get to Epcot. Next time we go we have already said we will spend the extra money and do a moderate rather than budget as it honestly was worth every extra penny.
First time back since the pandemic, still fav All Star resort
This was our first time back at the Sports since before the pandemic and it remains our favorite of the All Star Resorts. We were pleasantly surprised to have stayed in one of the renovated suites (building 4) while our friends still had an old room (building 1). There are renovations still happening so some of the parking and other areas were closed. We had to park super far away from our room as most of the parking around our building was closed. Our room was updated like the Pop Century rooms so everything was new and nice. My boys love this hotel's theming, the arcade and the food court and like all Disney on site hotels the convenience is the transportation to and from the parks. This was the main reason we chose to stay here.
