We loved All Star Sports. We are looking forward to going back in December. We are still unsure of the dates but decided that we will go back to this resort

We too going to Sports!

Actually, we three going to Sports! First time at ASsports 8/5 - 12 with DH & DS11 and cannot wait! Thank-you Ronald Duck and others for the pictures you posted. So nice to see the resort and great to hear of the refurbishments. Has anyone stayed in the baseball section? It looks like a close walk to the ASMu bus stop and pool? Just wondering. since DS hopes to stay in either baseball or football. Do the groups performing at the Wide World of Sports Complex usually stay at ASsports? like the little league championship groups in August?

The Baseball section is just past the Football section. I thought it was a short walk from Baseball to the food court/bus pickup at All Star Sports. There is a pool in the Baseball section but the main pool is not that far at all.

Alot of the sports teams stay at All Star Sports.

Hopefully someone else can answer your question about the ASMu pool/bus stop.

I don't think it's closer to the bus stop at ASMu from Baseball. We stayed in Football in April and walked over to ASMu just to check out their gift shop and do some pin trading with the CMs. As MickMan said, it's not far to the bus stop at ASSports from Baseball. The pool in front of Baseball was being refurbished in April.

Does anyone know if there are a lot of teams at the end of June? I know it will be crowded as I think just about all the resorts are fully booked the week we are going.

Thanks for the info about baseball & football - I will just plan on using the ASsports bus stop since it picks up first anyway - it just looked like on a map if we're in the far away baseball section that stop might be closer. After walking miles & miles at the parks it probably won't matter anyway! LOL

On the WWoS webpage I saw that Elite Baseball Tourney's (24 little league championships) are going on when we visit. So do you think a lot of these teams will be staying at ASsports? Should make for an exciting visit!

ALso the Tampa Bay Buc's training camp is going on while we visit. Sorry if this question belongs in transporatation but I did learn you take a bus to DHS to catch a bus to WWoS but I was wondering if anybody knew whether ASsports might have their own bus going to WWoS? DS11 might want to go over and check out some of the little league play & training camp is it's convenient to go - seems out of the way to take a bus via DHS when on the map it looks like WWoS is closer to ASsports. Thanks everyone.

Curious again. We stayed at Carribean Beach last year and didn't mind how far things were (we were in Jamaica and walked to the food court every morning). I sense ASSp is smaller from the description. Am I right that even if we are in baseball or one of the further out buildings that we aren't that far from the food court? We will be using our own car, how far out are the parking lots?

At Sports, you're never really too far from anything! Here's a link to a map of Sports: http://www.wdwinfo.com/resortmaps/allstarsportsmap.htm

As you'll see, you'll be close to parking pretty much no matter where your room is. Hope that helps!

Carribean Beach is sooooooo much more spread out. All Star Sports will be a much much shorter walk to the food court from any of the buildings.

The parking lot is not far at all from any of the buildings.

If you are staying at a value resort, one way to save $$$ is to get in on a fridge swap. Instead of paying $10 - $15 per night, you can pay just that much for your entire stay. We are getting in on one on the budget board. (All Star Fridge Swap - Fridge 1 and Fridge 2).

Two more months from tomorrow and we will be at Disney World. Can't wait!!!!!!!!!!

Are there ice machines @ in ALL STAR SPORTS? We stayed there in 2002, but I can't remember. If not, has anyone ever just filled a small container to take to your room? We'll be there in 2 weeks!!

If you want to know what events are happening during your trip go here:
http://disneyworldsports.disney.go.c...?name=HomePage
Then go to the calendar. The site links to each groups website and I fiddled around until I discovered which hotels they are staying at by looking through their websites.
