This is another myth. The all stars get updated as much as any other resort. For a while there because POP was new people prefered the newer look but over the years they have to keep up that resort just like the all stars. People have reported back that ASsports rooms have been updated recently.

I just looked at the photos on page 112 and the room looks very nice! Does anyone know if all the rooms will have privacy curtains or just the preferred rooms at Sports? Also, have all the buildings been refurbished now or are they still a work in progress?

I can't answer if all the rooms are now refurbished, but I stayed in Bldg 4 in February (definitely not a preferred room!!) and I had the privacy curtain.

I believe the rooms are all equally set up -- the difference between "preferred" or not is location.

My family was at Sports around Thanksgiving. I requested a refurbished room and was given a room in building four. At that time, they were working on building six. My parents and sister had rooms in building one, that was the old style. Building nine and building ten were old school, too. I think the curtain will be installed in all the rooms during the refurbishment phase.

I know the Surf's Up buildings are the preferred, and the Touchdown buildings are not preferred but are pretty close to the main building; but what about the proximity of the Center Court, Hoops hotel, and Homerun buildings to the main building and bus stop? We like the look of the Hoops Hotel and Center Court buildings, but they appear to be the furthest away? Any recommendations on which building among Hoops, Center Court, and Homerun would be the closest to the main building and bus stop?

I just stayed in building 8 and it had a privacy curtain. The football buildings were being remodeled. They were empty and I saw them bringing in new beds, headboards etc. They were also pressure washing the big football one day don't no if they were painting it. Everything was newly painted still had the tape around the windows.

We just got back from our 10 day stay at all star resorts. We were in Baseball 8 which was newly refurbished. When we were leaving (March 4/5)... they were redo'ing football 7, all the mattresses were out, the whole building looked like they were being redone all at the same time.

And the main pool was open the whole time we were there. (feb 23-march 5)... they were supposed to close it to refurbish it on Feb 25th?... but it was open the whole time. We used it 3 times, as at the end of our trip, it was getting pretty chilly.

Love the resort, and we will be staying there again!

Would love to see Photos soon of the remodeled rooms! We have one 12 yr old DS and I am sure he would love the chance to stay at Sports!

That's weird because we stayed in building 7 in February and our room was already done.

So it seems like there is a good possibility all the buildings will be refurbished by our trip in 2.5 months? Can anyone tell me if the Center Court or Hoops Hotel buildings are closest to Stadium Hall?

Can anyone tell me if there is a mirror on the bathroom door? I wanted to take an over the door shoe holder for toiletries - but wanted to make sure it wouldn't cover up a mirror. TIA!!
