Can we say food issues?

Port Orleans Riverside is the only report of new mugs. Good news is that it doesn't matter where you pick up your mugs. They are good at ANY resort refill station (that is a change from the past). So you can pick up a mug at POR, get it scanned, and use it at your home resort.

Someone on the Mug Sticky thread has already done it.

Still old design with green/purple lids at Sports. In the parks one sees people who have the new mugs.

Lobby is also having some work done so you can't walk from the check-in area to the food court. They must have known I was coming because it was the same setup when I was here in 2008. :-)

Which part would you request in order to be close to buses? And where are the preferred rooms located?

I'm changing our September reservations from Pop Century to All Star Sports. I was a little nervous after reading some bad reviews over at allears. After reading this thread, I am feeling much better about my decision. Thanks y'all!!

Question...we are going with a group of friends and will have 19 kids all ages between the 4 families (7 are mine!). What kind of daily activities does All Star Sports have for the kids? Thanks!

Surf's up is all preferred. The Touchdown buildings are very close also.

They have daily games and activities by the pool in the afternoon every day. And there is an outdoor movie played by the pool every night.

I requested the Touchdown section and my room was in building 10. From that building there is a handy shortcut to the buses where you go around in the other way and not through Stadium Hall. But, Touchdown is also really convenient for when you do need to visit the main hall. I liked it.

We never stay preferred, but always include in our request "closest to bus stop/main bldg". We had a GREAT room in Touch Down that was closer to the food court than most of the preferred rooms.
Some of the Touch Down are much further away.
All that to say, put what you want in your requests, rather than trying to request a building, because you might get the building you want, but not the location you want.

When in April are you going? All Star Cheerleading Worlds takes place the last full weekend in April and the AS Sports will be packed with cheerleaders arriving during the week and most staying through at least Monday. The following weekend May 3-4 is All Star Cheerleading Summit.
While both competitions take place at ESPN World, the event resort packages are set for AS Sports.
