OK Sports fans, here is a strange question for you. We (party of 8)?are leaving on Friday. My MIL and FIL like to have grits for breakfast and was considering taking the instant packages. J know there are no microwaves in the rooms but as I recall there is a dispenser of very hot water at the drink cointer. Has anyone ever tried to mix that water and instant grits and does it work ok? Also I think there is a microwave in the drink counter area but was not sure

Thanks in advance for the info!

there are microwaves in the food court.

near the pizza pick up window is a counter to the left of that.

toaster, microwave, condiments, etc.


at the beverage island, there is a hot water faccet you can use.

Referb notice for All Star Sports. This one sounds like a real pain in the butt if staying during construction:

The End Zone Food Court at Disney's All-Star Sports Resort will be closed for refurbishment from August 5 until December 20, 2013. During this time, made-to-order food will not be available. Grab-and-go food items (cold sandwiches, cereal, etc.) will be available in a temporary location -- the Game Point Arcade. (Arcade games will not be available during this refurbishment.) Motor coach transportation to the other All-Star Resorts will be available throughout the day during this period, and two motor coaches will run during mealtimes. You will be able to board motor coaches from the porte-cochere outside the All-Star Sports lobby. Coaches will travel to the porte-cocheres at both All-Star Music and All-Star Movies. This transportation will also be available if you'd like to enjoy the Note'able Games and Reel Fun arcades at the other All-Star resorts.

I would definitely stay away from all three All-Stars during this rehab.

Thanks for the info Ang. I agree it does sound like it will be a pain but the decor in the All Star food courts has been needing some updating for a while. I'm excited to see the finished product.

I agree I would stay away during the fefurb and I also agree it really needs an overhall. I do wonder if they will refurb Music and then Movies after that? If so it will be over a year before the chaos in the food courts are over.

Oh, great. We're staying at Sports for the first time in September. Oh well. Guess we'll have to make the best of it!

Good attitude Amber. You could always bring or order drinks for your room and maybe breakfast and then eat at the parks to avoid the chaos. It might even make Sports less busy during that time. I think when Pop Warner is there in December will be the biggest hassle.

Thanks I told DH last night we'd just bring drinks and stick them in the fridge, so it'll be ok. DS was freaking out about the arcade, so I told him we'd go to Movies for the arcade, that way he can see big Buzz and Woody, so then he was excited Hopefully it will be less busy! That would be sweet to be at an almost empty resort It's going to be awful in December. I feel kinda bad for the CM's working there.

I'll be at Sports during the period of that closure and not concerned about it.


i figure the resort won't be packed due to that......


there will be a bus set up to shuttle the guests to the other 2 sister resorts for their food court.



it will work fine for me.

Any idea what they will be doing about the refillable mug station during the refurbishment period???

My brother in law and his gang are booked to stay at All-Star Sports for their very first ever Disney vacation this Oct. I am wondering if I should suggest them changing to another All-Star??????

my first thought was that it would not be affected during the remodeling of the food stations.


my second thought was to call the hotel direct and ask them........


when i do call, i will come back here and post what i am told.
