This is nice to hear. I didn't know Sports was getting a refurb. Can anyone confirm if all the buildings are done yet? Also what is the status of the Surfs Up pool refurb? I remember reading on here that it was getting changed to a zero depth entry pool (or was that just a rumor? ).

ok I'm confused it shows on here this: •Disney All Star Sports - Surfboard Bay Pool closed 2/25/2013- 3/6/2013

so has it already been done ahead of schedule?

The pool was closed in September. If you go back to about page 94 or 95 of this thread people reported that it was closed for about the whole month. There were rumors that came from CM's that when it reopened it would be zero entry. I don't know why it will be closed again.

This is one of the posts from September 9, 2012 about the pool being closed. I don't know if it was ever rehabbed but it was closed.

the Surfboard Bay pool is the large pool near the lobby building, located near the Surfs Up buildings.


the Grand Slam pool is the small pool in front of Home Run hotel.



yes, the Surfboard pool was closed for refurbishing back in september.

Maybe there was a typo and the small pool is the one that is going to be closed?????


All Star Sports has two different pools.

Try this:
You may need to clear your search history first

Go to www.disneyworld.com and log in
Scroll down the page until you see Customized Maps. Click the link
The old site should come up
My Reservations will be at the top. Click the link
Your reservation details should appear like they would had you been on the old site.

its been a few years since staying onsite, for the life of me I can't remember how you go about requesting a certain section?? Do I call them or is there a place online?
Even though I never changed my ticker to update we're leaving earlier, we are leaving the 12th and I can't believe that this time on Tues. we'll be 1/4 of the way there. So excited, DD knows we decided on a split stay, but DS doesn't, he will be so excited when we get there! They both play softball/baseball so I thought that section would be perfect for us, with hopefully a parking lot view so it may be quieter
