got home last night from orlando.

yes, that was the time wait for the busses.

i wasn't fond of Movies as limited registers were opened.
but, i wasn't there are the popular dining times.
a few times it was around 9:45 pm.

i really enjoyed staying at Sports.
quiet, low key and the quick food section at sports was manned by lots of CM's.

i'll be going back to Sports for another stay in the first week of January.
looking forward to it.

Apologies in advance as I haven't read this entire thread. We have never stayed at the AS Sports. It is my understanding that buildings 1 and 6 are preferred. We have a standard room reserved. What do you recommend for the best room location requests? Thanks!

those buildings are Surfs Up and closest to the pool and near the food court/lobby.

i have stayed at both of them.

if you want quiet, do not take the first floor.
second or third floors do not have the pool noise or the sounds of people talking when walking by your room.

i like TD 10 and 7 at the far end near the food court area.
it does not have the extra preferred charge and close to everything.
i also like the backside of those buildings for the quietness.
they face foliage and walkways.

Is that the wording I'd use to request the location? "TD 10 or 7 close to the food court, away from the football field"?

instead of saying away from the football field, maybe say, at the end of the football field but at the side near the food court.

if you want to stay on the side opposite of the field, you will see foliage.
either you will be near the food court/main building or near the baseball section.
they are on opposite ends.


i have stayed on ground floor and 2nd floor that faced the football field in both buildings.

when on the upper floor, i did not hear the noise from outside.

i only hear the muffled noise sounds when i was on the ground level.

Thank you! We will also be there the first week of January!

Call CM and was told that All Star Sports Resort food court closed till 12/20/13, however DIS website says it is closed till 12/26/13. Any guess on the real story here. We are arriving 12/21 so it will make a difference to us which is the correct date.

Any info is appreciated.

i was at Sports this month and we were told the food court would be opened
either the 20 or 21st of december.


if they are having a set back on meeting the time frame, you would think the CM would tell you when you called.


are you calling the hotel directly?




i have another ressie for Sports for January 3rd.
when i checked out of the resort, i was told that everything would be up and running before christmas.

i have no idea why other sites have a different date.

We just returned from WDW on October 12, staying at Ft. Wilderness in our camper.

We've done everything but make reservations for our June 2015 trip! We have invited grandparents to go with us to celebrate DD's 10th birthday. We thought about getting a 2br villa @ OKW, but we priced out three rooms at ASSports & it was less expensive, so here we are! We have plenty of time for the grandparents to decide whether or not they want to go, but either way, we have decided to stay in an All Star Resort for our next trip & with two years to get ready, we have time to save up the money to pay for it.

I hope to stay at Sports, but I might see if DH has a preference for Movies or Music. I'm hoping that being the first bus stop will sway him here. I'll be checking back often! Excited to be here.

The official WDW refurbishment publication on the travel agent site continues to list the food court closure through December 20.
