we just got back on sat. after 10 days. Last year we stayed at CBR this year ASsport. I'll admit I liked sport better even with the one pool being down for rehab. We were in bldg 7 on the 1st floor and never heard any of the commotion. The room was newly rehabbed and smelled of new carpet. Bldg 7, while not preferred, was very close to the main bldg. The food court was often crowded but not congested. The laundry room washers and dryers worked as advertised. Upon check out the line to check the bags for ME return was about 20min. but I waited till after breakfast to jump in line (before breakfast it was walk up). While the busses were crowded, wait times were reasonable. A couple nights we waited a half hour at MK. But the luck of transportation was on our side most of the trip where we walked up to the bus stop just in time for the next bus.

yeah, it is a value resort... but at Disney we get up kinda early and stay out kinda late so we are in the room a total of 8 hours a day to sleep and that’s it. No reason to spend more on amenities you are not using (moderate sends a bellman to your room to collect your bags for ME at check out, that is not worth the additional $60 a night that a moderate charges, and would be the only amenity that we used that I noticed was lacking from our moderate stay.)

UPDATE: At the All Star Sports Resort, the Surfboard Bay Pool and kiddie pool are closed for refurbishment through September 20, 2007.

Just read this and thought I would pass it on.

No. Surfboard Bay & kiddie pool are in the same area. Then there is the baseball pool (I think it's called Grand Slam pool?) That's a separate pool, smaller than Surfboard Bay.

Do you mean 2008? We are going in December, and if it is a warm evening we would love to take our little fish out for a swim.

For those of you asking about Christmas decorations. Yes they have plenty of decorations up all around the resort. Or at least they did last year. Nothing really outside just in the main areas. We loved ASSports and would love to be going back right now. I will try to locate some decorations pictures for you too.

Bell services

Is there someone who can come get our bags if we tip them? Can we drop off or bags the night before at the luggage check in (or is there even one) becouse we have to leave the resort at 3am to be to the airport and fight at 6am. I sure hope we can check them the night before and then just claim them that morning instead of hauling them at that time. It will be bad enough getting the kids to the bus that early. Do they have flight check in also. what about southwest just being able to print our boarding passes at the front desk becouse we cant do the them keep our luagage thing. Thanks
