Are there many large groups/sports teams during the first-second week of June? We are not going this summer but a trip planned in 2009! If someone is visiting Sports during June please report back about any large groups during this time. We love the values but sometimes I am scared about all the reviews about large groups staying at the values. I KNOW my 7 yr old DS would love this resort.

I'm hoping that someone who has been recently can tell us if all the renovations are done. We want to request the tennis area.

We were actually in the Tennis section last Sept and at that time Tennis was 1/2 way done! Our room wasn't but we found out it was the next week! Have a great time in the new rooms. The main pool reopend the day we left on Sept 29.

I saw on another thread that the renovation was complete in March of 08.

I'm so happy to hear that all the rooms were redone. Our first WDW trip we stayed at the new All Star Sports. That was a long time ago, and I was a little worried about what shape the rooms would be in all these years later.

Does anyone know if large teams are usually there in late September. I figured with most schools just starting back that groups would be low.

Also, we are not using the buses much and have requested preferred rooms, what would be the best thing to put on our reservation request as far as room location?

ARe there any fridge swaps going on for sports now?

Sorry about the questions but I like to be thorough.
I am sure I will have more questions as time goes on.

I am really looking forward to this trip

I am trying to find the same thing out about the large groups in Sept. We are going the 15 - 20th. This will be our first time at Sports resort and I am having mixed feelings about it. I think I'm reading too many reviews about it!!
Hopefully someone will be able to let us know about the groups!

Someone let us know about any groups. Please! If they were to be there I would just consider going back to Music that week.

There used to be this awesome thread that listed all of the big conventions and where they were staying, but I haven't seen it in a looooong time.

I read on another thread that it's sometimes helpful to check out the Wide World of Sports website to see if they have anything listed there. I will be at the ASSps from Sept 24 - 30 and didn't see anything on the WWoS site...but I am not sure if that's a complete list?

I don't know if there are any large groups in September. We just returned from Sports on Saturday. During the week we saw a big sign that said something about "Welcome Spring Training. . ." That large sign was at the entrance to the resort from the parking lot near the Home Run buildings. We never could figure out who that group was and we never saw a lot of people who looked like they were in a group. We would leave for the parks anywhere from 7:45 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and return anywhere from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. No problem with a group at all.

A few years ago one of our local high school played in a football tournament in late September - stayed at the All Star Sports. With the price of gas, I don't think you are going to see teams from places like NY going to long weekend tournaments. This was all through the WWOS - so checking their website should give you a good idea of things going on while you are there.
