Thanks! I'm trying to avoid baggage fees on Spirit. All of my clothes fit in my "personal" item. Now I'm trying to decide what I need to bring and what I can buy toiletry wise.

Honestly you may save just paying the baggage fee. Items purchased in the gift shop can be very costly.

I just returned from a trip and stayed at POR. I chose a mod this time because my mother came with us and we needed bigger beds and an in room coffee maker. While there is nothing wrong with POR per say I really missed my All Star Sports! When I stay at All Star Sports my room is always spotless. I definitely could not say that about POR. Also, I like the convenience of not having 4 bus stops and the buses were always so crowded!!!! So, I am going back to what I love this coming March! All Star Sports here I come!

i already booked my stay at Sports before the rumor of free dining.

won't be there until the end of september and not interested in the dining package.

i used the AAA rate for room only and received a decent discount.


don't know how i am going to wait this long before my vacation stay!!

The wife and I are booked for our 1st anniversary Aug 8-14... Got a very good rate via JetBlue getaways: round-trip flights (JFK to MCO: 8am flight going, 8pm coming home) and 6 nights at AS Sports for $970 total.

Was wondering if it was worth an additional $85 bucks for a preferred room upgrade.. Any thoughts?

We like the preferred room just to save a few steps to the Food Court and Bus stop. After standing all day long in the parks, every step closer to the room is a plus!

We never book preferred, but when I do online check I request close to bus/food court. I've always ended up in touch down 7 which is very close

That's what we requested, and got the building of touchdown that was literally closer to the food court than much of the preferred.

Renovations

Posted this somewhere else, but just found this thread so going to add here, too.

Just booked for end of August. My kids wanted Sports, but when I went to make the reservation was told (by two different CMs!) that the food court at Sports would be undergoing major renovations starting in August. I don't remember exact dates. There will be no hot food at all. Cold food will be available in area that is now the arcade. So no arcade either. Shuttles will take people to the other AS resorts for hot food--or I guess you could walk there.

We opted for POP instead of dealing with that! If this would be an issue for you, you might just want to check for your dates.

That's a very good deal! I have been pricing flights out of JFK and Stewart for awhile and can't find any good deals. It's almost $400 per person out of Stewart and $300 per person out of JFK. Ughh annoying

That's not good to hear. We have our reservations there during that time. We don't mind walking over to ASMu or ASMo. I've seen them updating the ASMo food court and there was no shut down of the food court. If this is the case, ASSp will be a completely updated resort, room refurb and this.

I hope you love it as much as we do!

I'm excited that the food court is getting an update!

Yes, it is! I suggest looking at JetBlue getaways and playing around with the dates. I just plugged in my travel dates and the package has gone up by only $50.
