We all have different preferences also. The bed in my room was firm yet in my friends they were really soft. All our matresses at Sports so far have been firm and not too bad.

We stayed at Movies and the beds were fine, but that was a while back

I am curious how the food court will be right before the rehab

Maybe we head to AoA or the Poly for the one night, but probably will just stay at Sports until the next morning

Yes, I just got the letter, and I am not happy. The food court is the main hub of activity at the resort, along with the pool. No food court, no arcade, and I'm guessing no pool bar, since that is attached to the food court. This is not acceptable. What about people on the dining plan having to take a bus to use their credits? Come on now.

Disney should have automatically offered those of us who booked before the announcement an upgrade to moderate for our trouble. That should have been absolutely automatic. It's not going to be acceptable to move me into the Movies or Music either, as those facilities will now be mobbed with an extra resort's full of people.

I was going to call first and see if there was anything they would do, but your experience doesn't give me much hope. I never do this, but in this instance I am going to write a *snail mail* letter to Disney. In it I will urge them to either do something about this, or I will be canceling my reservation and not returning to Disney for quite some time over this. And I just stayed at Sports in May and was going back in Sept., and regularly visit Disney with resort stays.

Please do and please report back with their reply. I have a feeling they won't do anything, but am curious as to how they word their reply. I'm betting that they will point to the fine print that the only thing your reservation guarantees you is A room on the WDW property. Which you will still have even though your room will not have a food court close by. Now I agree with your point, I'm just speculating how they will get around your complaint.

Nope. All the letter states is that the food court will be closed, as will the arcade so they can serve cold items, and that they will provide buses to the other All Star resorts to use their food courts.

Exclamation

With the food court being closed, does that automatically mean that pizza delivery will not be available?

I'm not 100% sure, but I assume that there will be no pizza delivery at Sports.

no it does not.

i talked to 2 supervisors and was told no discounts.
not even a free mug.

maybe i will contact them again in a few weeks now that the letters were sent out.
if many complain, maybe they will change their stand with a discount.

i don't know.
i didn't inquire about that when i called them.

since the other food courts will be adding on more families with the closing of Sports food court, it would be wonderful if pizza delivery would be allowed.

Just curious what would make anyone want to stay here now because of the construction? Sports is one of my favorite resorts and were possibly thing of staying there in December but if we do book a trip it will be to Pop. Now if they offered some kind of a discount or something then maybe it would be worth it.

For those currently booked during construction time, is it difficult to change to another resort? Cant say I have ever had to do anything like that.

FYI:

I booked my reservation through JetBlue getaways... They offered to transfer my reservation from Sports to Music for $70 total (1 room for 6 nights). This is equivalent to what they were charging for Music at the time of my booking the trip.

We don't use the food court often. We have granola bars or pop tarts for breakfast, and our other meals in the parks or DTD. So, we're keeping our reservations for Sports since my family is baseball crazy, and hoping for an empty resort!

I like to know what they are exactly doing to the food court. Will they be updated the "look" of the food court? I wonder if ASMU's food court will be next on the list of updates just because it is similar to Sports.
