All Star Resorts

What is the best one in your opinion to stay at? Always stayed at AK or POFQ and want to try something new. I was thinking Movies.

We always stay at in the Touchdown building at All Star Sports. The main reason is that the All Stars share buses. The All Star Sports is the first pick up and first drop off. We were just there a few days ago. I felt so bad for the people at the Movies. Several times our bus would pull up and there would be room for 2 or 3 people to get on. The rest of the people would have to wait for the next one.
The only draw back right now with the Sports is the food court is being refurbished . I think it reopens in December. There is a bus that will take you to the other All Stars to eat. If you stay in the Touchdown building, it's just a short walk to the Music.

Looks like we're staying at Sports then! Thank you

We like Music. It's nestled between the other two All Stars and we like to walk over to the other resorts in the evenings to pin trade, sightsee, etc. Busses don't share as much as people seem to think. I have stayed at Music at least ten times and never experienced it. Also, stay clear of the football field at Sports if you ever want to sleep. Tour groups and kids practice and play on it almost all night!

It must just depend on when you stay there. We have stayed at Sports many times since they opened. We have been there when buses are shared and when they are not. I'm just saying, when they are shared, the bus is always full by the time it gets to the Movies. I always feel bad for people with kids who are in line for the bus and can't get on. We were there in February and again in May. No bus sharing. It was so nice. We were there last week and every bus we got on went to the other two All Stars. It's a huge pain in the butt.
We always stay at the Touchdown building and have never had a problem with noise from outside. We love that building because we always play a family football game down on the field. I have heard of cheerleaders practicing all night on the field at all hours if the night. I always ask if there are any large groups staying when I'm making my reservations.
Again, it must depend in what time of the year you are there.

We also like Music. Families with kids seem to prefer Movies and Sports for their decorations/themes. There are kids at Music, but just doesn't seem to be overrun with them.

We also rarely run into the "shared" bus problem. Occasionally, but have never been unable to board a bus when one pulled up, even if it was pretty full.

We hAve stayed at them all. We really liked Music the best. We always stay preferred and like being near the pool and main building. Stayed at Movies last because the grandkids like the teeming. We did not like Sports but may be because we were way in the back.

Have only stayed at Music and Movies. We like Movies the best of the two, mainly because of the themes and the food court. Have not experienced any bus problems (unlike Pop). Going back to Movies next month.

I've stayed at each one multiple times! Music is my personal favorite as I love the theming and it seems to be the quietest of the three. Movies has WOW! level fun, Disney theming. Sports has lush landscaping and a newly refurbished food court.

I have stayed at all of the All Star resorts, and Music is my favorite. I like to request the Broadway section as I find it more quiet, and it's near the smaller pool. The walkways in that area are nice as well.
