OP is correct, they are boxed frames to the floor in all Values (not sure about AoA)

Ok, curious as to what is preferred and what is standard. I'm guessing Herbie and Mighty Ducks are standard?

Has anyone ever eaten here with an allergy? My DD has a gluten allergy and while I check that section, I thought I'd ask here if anyone has any good or bad experiences with Movies.

Hoping some people here can ease some concerns I have...Recently booked a week long trip to the world to run in the Expedition Everest Challenge in May..staying the first 2 nights/3 days at CBR (one of the sponsor hotels for the race) and then staying 6 nights/7 days at ASMo...

Originally I had wanted to stay at POR but saving the extra money to stay at ASMo seems like a smart move..catch is ive only ever stayed a night or two in a value...will I last a whole week? It is just me travelling (so far) so space in the room wont really be an issue...I just really wanted a nice pool to relax by during the day before hitting the parks in the evening...the pool at ASMo looks nice but is it crowed? How are the CS options there for food? How is the transportation/location to parks? I guess im just a bit nervous committing a whole week to a value, especially after doing a stay at a moderate first, and im not sure whether or not to suck it up and move to POR instead...

Values tend to have better food courts, so that won't be an issue. The pool would be as busy as any disney resort.

The main Mickey pool can be crowded around dinner and evening but the mighty ducks pool is almost always empty. The food court at movies is great! Lots of options and the staff is super. I just stayed there last valentines for 2 1/2 weeks with DH and DD. the only place that gets overly crowed all the time is the laundry mat you really have to fight for a washer/dryer. Also be warned this hotel can be loud at night with all kinds of tour groups featuring youngsters for sport competitions. That was my only complaint about staying there.

You can always pool hop to other All Star resorts too if you want to check out different pools different days of your stay.

The counter service was ok when we went, pretty standard.

Thanks for the tip on the pool hopping...I didnt know that a room at one all star resort allowed you access to all three resorts pools...this may help with mixing it up a bit and not getting too bored.... thanks!

Question themes

Ok, I know I should read all the pages, but I have not yet, will still try! I was wondering about the themes. I have read the following so far:
Love Bug
Mighty Ducks
Dalmations
Toy Story
Fantasia

Is there any others? Which did you like best and Why?

Getting Excited!

We will be heading down in 10 days! We've never stayed at AsMo, so we look forward to crossing this resort off of our list! My kids are beside themselves excited, and I can't wait to see their faces when we arrive. I hope we get a Toy Story room.

We just booked our first stay here next month. I only booked a standard room. Is there any chance we will be able to get a section other than mighty ducks and herby if we ask for it without booking preferred?

Not ususally and it depends on how busy the resort is at the time. I have asked before at Pop and was told no, but they did move me to a closer room.

Well, my last stay was at POR and I would never go back. I hated that place. 1) we haven't even gotten to our room yet and was checking in when a certain DISer mumbled "effing aholes" about my kids. The not clean version of that really. I nearly got up and choked him, but decided against it. My kids were excited a rowdy after being on a plane all day. 2) If you get stuck in a far building, you're screwed as far as walking goes. POR is way too spread out. 3) No disney magic, at least not for kids. And we stayed in a Princess room. Really, the only characters can be found in the gift shop? I found that incredibly odd. Yes, the main pool was nice, but super crowded, and yes I will miss the slide, but that's about it.

I've never stayed at Movies, but at Pop, and I like the layout. Yes, it's no frills, but it's more cpmpact, so you're never far, and Kids love the large icons. So I'm guessing they'll love movies just as much as they loved Pop, if not more (since they're really into 101 Dalmations and Toy Story now).
