Staying with Sports

We are staying at the All Star Sports, and the refurb does not have me concerned. They are still doing the refills on mugs, and will have some food. That works for me. I can see why some would expect Disney to give some sort of compensation, but I did not think they would. Glad to hear Pizza Del will still be an option.
I am going for the parks not the hotel.

looking at my letter from disney, it states the refurb begins Aug 5th.
(July 29th, the game point Arcade will be closed.)


and, they expect the refurbishment to be completed in late December 2013.

for the ones that know me, understood when i first posted about wanting to get a free mug, i was joking.


i have 14 mugs in my basement .............i really don't want another one!



i do car service and grocery stop and pick up soda before i arrive at the resort.


for those that booked the dining plan, you can transfer your ressie to one of the sister hotels with no change/increase.

Reading about the new rfid chips in mugs being rolled out in July for All Stars. In addition, possibly no mug refills at Sports when the food court is down. Do I really want to walk to Music for drinks?

Do all of the rooms at All Star Sports have a privacy curtain between the bedroom area and sink area? Thank you!

i called and was told there would be a beverage island at sports.
it wouldn't be as large as it was before.

i'll call again in a month to see if that is going to change.

and i need to find out if the fridge swap out in the rooms are completed.

Hey everyone. Kind of disappointed that the Food Court will be closed. I am thinking of taking a trip late October, free dining coming up. Has anyone stayed at Movies or Music and which is better?

Inside the standard rooms at Music or Movies, there will be no difference. (Music does have family suites as well.)

I just stayed at Movies and requested and got the Mighty Ducks section so I could take advantage of both Music and Movies. The food court and buses for Music were actually closer than Movies, but it wasn't a long walk to the Movies food court either.

The food court at Movies is bigger and has a better layout (in my opinion) and is generally more appealing. On the other hand, we used the Music food court for a large pizza and it was quick, fresh, and delicious.

We ended up using the main pool at Music and the Duck Pond (Mighty Ducks) pool at Movies. So you get the gist that you can stay at one resort but take advantage of both.

Can someone verify about the refurbs???

We are currently booked at POP from 9/27-10/2 and are considering switching to AS Sports because we love that they have duvet covers now....are all of the rooms refurbed now???

I know that the food court is going to be refurbed...we don't care about that, we are there for food & wine!!!

What are the exact dates?

Thanks?

In the official refurb document, they are no longer listing the "soft goods replacement" for ASSp, so that may indicate the bedding replacements are complete for the resort. Previously they were indicating an end date of June 7.

I would safely guess for late September you could expect the new bedding.

Movies still has the old style bedspread. :-(
