1) Which buildings are the preferred rooms?

2) I would like to request a section that is fairly quiet and close to parking. Any recommendations?

3) Has the entire resort been refurbed recently, or just certain rooms? Which rooms were refurbed most recently?
Preferred are surfs up

Surfs up is quiet on the back side and close to the parking lot ( building closest to bus stops)

Surfs up was being refurbed when I was there last week. I don't know if they had just started or were almost done. They finished surfs up in 2 days.

Thanks! We booked standard so Surf's Up is out, unfortunately. Aside from being close to everything, it would be my favorite theme choice. Oh well. Anybody have a standard section to recommend, or know which of those was refurbed most recently?

Not sure when it was refurbed last but I had no complaints when I stayed there last. You already learned Surf's up is preferred. When I think quiet and close to parking I think basketball or tennis rooms in back. If you want closer to main building, parking but noisier I would say baseball or building 7 of football. Building 10 has a tiny section of parking that is actually on the end of the baseball building and it fills up fast. HTH

my cousin stayed there one year and he loved it.

Just stayed there this weekend at a preferred room (surfs up bldg). Everything was very nice and our area of surfs up was quiet. Only issue was we had was no hot water the second night. Has this happened to anyone before? I am going back this Friday for a week and have a minor concern about this.

That would really stink. I have never had that happen in any Disney hotel. Other hotels yes but not Disney. I always wonder how big the hot water tanks must be.

Honestly, it was late and we were tired so we never even called. By next morning, there was no issue.

We are checking into All Star Sports tomorrow! can't wait! We request Football or baseball sections. Fingers are crossed for football! It's my favorite part of the resort! Plus DS loves throwing around the football on the football field while I'm getting ready. Will be so much easier if I can just look at the curtain of my room and see him!
