It looks like they added a cushion to the chairs, new carpet and the privacy curtain. Everything else looks the same as the last time I stayed there. I guess it was a mini-rehab.

Thanks for sharing the info and pics it looks great. Now I wonder if all the rooms have the privacy curtain? I always brought my own. I love that they got rid of those gross comforters too so I don't have to fold it up and put it in the corner and hope they don't put it back on the bed anymore.

Thanks for the update and pictures. We are in a standard room so I hope the other buildings have the privacy curtains too.

LOL about the comforers. I do the same thing.

I hope they don't have the chips in the cups when we go. I don't think my dad could handle that.

The chips in the cups and the machines that read them are long gone so your dad's experience with refills should be frustration free.

I'm here now.. the RFID locks are continuing to be installed, yesterday they were working on the first floor of building 6 - Surf's Up. I'm in 614X so I expect they'll be around here in the next day or so.

I noted that Tennis seems to be pretty much complete. And while I haven't yet checked Basketball, Football or Baseball, I can get that done this morning.

:D

We're back from our stay at ASSp. Room 9228.

Was not one of rehabbed rooms with the little coverlets and the privacy curtain though.

Some observations we thought might be helpful...

We noticed in the food court, only one station was open during the early morning hours. Lead to very long lines with sports groups at the resort.

Our room (building 9) was actually closer to the Music bus stop and food court. We walked there through the building 9 parking lot. Also, all of their food court stations were open in the early morning.

We also took the Music bus back home from the parks.

Bus service was excellent. Much better than our August trip at Boardwalk.

Does anyone which rooms / buildings haven been updated with the privacy curtains? From some recent posts it appears that building 6 (Surf's Up) had the privacy curtains but Building 9 (Homerun Hotel) didn't.

We will be staying at Sports at the end of the month and the privacy curtain would be GREAT for our family since we have some early risers that get up to shower and get ready while the other sleep. We have two rooms and I'm not sure the cost to upgrade to Surfs Up would be worth it.

TIA.

I am wondering the same thing about the privacy curtain.. I like to get up before the rest of the family and the curtain would be a big help. If anyone knows which parts of the resort have them- I would greatly appreciate the info. (We check in on 2/9/13)

Do any (or all) rooms have a fridge or a microwave in them?

Digging this up from the grave So I am not going crazy fellow AS Sports fans. I changed my dates once again. I had knee surgery a couple of weeks ago and the end of February is too soon to visit the world. So I am going the first week of May. Good time to go though as I believe it is Flower and Garden Festival at EPCOT.
