My family and I are staying here for the first time - we'll be there in one week! I'm really excited. This is a surprise trip for DS. He is a huge sports fan, so I know he'll love the theme. I've requested to be in the Home Run section, as DS's favorite sport is baseball, but we'd be happy with any section.

DS and DH are also staying here for a night in May when they take a quick trip to go to a Star Wars Weekend at DHS.

I have some questions about All Star Sports. I've done Pop Century before and enjoyed it, but looking for a break from such a large resort. Is this the first resort of those three resorts for pick ups (used to Pop Century and dedicated buses)? The decor looks cool to me as a big sports fan. Is there a map of the place to see which building I should request? Also, Are there any big sports groups from February 28-March 4? Thanks for the help on it.

if the buses would share, sports would be the first pick up and drop off.

there has been very few times (4) that the sports bus was shared while i was staying at All Stars.


i have had 25 stays at Sports.
all have been in the Surfs Up or Touchdown buildings.
but have visited friends in Tennis and Home Run Inn.



this link from Allears shows the basic structure layout of the buildings:

http://allears.net/acc/as_layout.htm


this link will show the locations and names of all the buildings:

http://allears.net/acc/asp_map.jpg

scroll down to get more info about Sports in the above link.


the tax for the All Stars Hotels and the AKL is 13%.
that is a bit more than the other resorts.

if you want to shop for treats, buy them in the park to take back to your room.
if not, you will be paying .5% more in the tax at ASSP.

All Stars hotels are smaller than Pop.
also, the buildings only have 3 stories, not 4 as Pop has.
they also have two rooms shorter than Pop length wise.


i really prefer the smaller buildings.
it is not far at all to walk from one place to another there.
for me, i feel it is more quiet at all stars sports rather than at Pop.
less people and less spread out than Pop.

you can also eat at the other 2 sister hotels.

And it is not that long of a walk to visit the other All Star resorts.
Kind of fun to see the other resorts.

I am typing this from my bed at the All Star Sports Resort.

We are staying in Surf's Up Building 1. Our room has not been refreshed with the privacy curtain / bedding. We are enjoying the hotel. The food court is smaller then Pop but I think that is because the resort is smaller. It has not been a problem for us.

We have stayed at Movies, Music and Pop on previous trips and are as happy at Sports as we were at the others.

I know most ask for rooms closer to the foodcourt, but I guess I'm different, it doesn't bother me to walk, I like to ask for a room farther away facing away from pools towards the parking lots...seems to be quieter...we've stayed at the other 3 values,we're hoping to stay here next month if it works out,if not offsite is what we have ressies for now and maybe one day we'll get here!

Rehab

Have all the rooms been recently refurbished? We haven't stayed at Sports for several years but my DSis and I are thinking about a trip in April and wondered if they were going to refurbish all the rooms. My DH and I have been staying at POR because we enjoy taking the boat to DTD but my DSis and I thought we would try to do a budget trip and try Sports again.

I am at Sports right now (moving to CSR tomorrow). I'm in Bldg 4 (tennis) - a bit of a walk to the food court and buses, but very quiet -- even with all the dance groups and cheerleaders here!

My room is refurbished -- looks very nice. I can't post any pictures till I get home this weekend.
