Thanks! I'll post lots of pictures on this thread of the hotel. Maybe I'll get my act together and do a TR this time!

I had never stayed at Sports before last week, so I don't know what it used to look like. But there was nothing I saw that looked new or anything like that.

This is ashamed to hear. I was expecting to hear about the changes.

My suggestion would be request a room at the back of Building #1. That's where the rest of our grand gathering party was and they said it was very quiet, yet still fairly close to everything.

So, picture a T shape - ask for a room at the back of the top horizontal line - I hope that makes sense!

HTH!

OK, I found the layout map I used to figure out which area to ask for before we went:
http://************/maps/wdw/resorts/...ayoutlarge.pdf

That should be easier to understand than my goofy description above LOL

They were in rooms #1150, 1151 & 1152. I would think anywhere on the back of that building would be quiet.

Red face Got back Sunday after

...a 2 night stay at SPORTS! Its been over 1 year since I have been there, and I got Tennis Section room 4219! Not too bad of a location, and I got the "new" furniture/bedcover/tv/and coat rack! Last time I was at Baseball, and did not have a "new room." So this was a nice surprise!

I just got back last night and will post a trip report soon! Our stay was okay. We were in the touchdown section, very close to the main building and we were facing the football field. Minor annoyances - Mousekeeping. I left a tip the first day in my handy dandy envies I made up. Didn't get any shampoo, cups, ice bucket was still dirty and I don't think they have ever mopped the floor since there was hair all over it by the door which wasn't mine. I didn't leave a tip again since the service was just sub-par.

Our sink didn't drain right and the "quick dial" buttons didn't work on our phone. I think someone on here had this same room because I remember reading about these two problems. Like I said, minor, I didn't complain and we only slept in the room so it wasn't a big deal.

Package pickup..the woman in the gift shop sent me over to concierge, then I got sent back to the gift shop. Only to find out our package wouldn't be there until the next day...the guy at the park said 3 hours. So try explaining THAT to a 9 year old PDD/ADHD child that has been looking forward to playing with his new POTC toy ALL DAY! I made up for it though and we spent A LOT of time playing video games that night.

Bus service was fine. We were the only people on the busses a couple of times. Food court was only packed on Saturday night and it felt like it took forever for them to prepare the food. I do have to say, people weren't helpful when I was getting on the busses. I'm a single mom, traveling with a toddler and a 9 year old. A stroller, 2 kids, and bags = HARD! Not a single person that saw me struggle offered assistance. Everyone just stood there. The men never got up on the busses to offer a seat to women or kids. The women did, so kudos to the ladies! Again, annoyances, but nothing to ruin my trip over.

Each night on the way back from the parks, I stopped in the resort gift shop, bought a big milk (same price as in the food court and twice the size). Filled the small shopping bag up with ice and the milk stayed cold in the ice bucket until morning for the kids.

We didn't get to swim, it was way too cold. My son loved the arcade. Bought a $25 card and it lasted the entire trip.

So that's it in a nutshell.

I would have complained about Mousekeeping !!I hear you with no one helping you! I decided against bringing a stroller in 2007 for DGS and we just rented at the park he was 5 though !! The first time on the bus DD saw people with strollers and said "Good Decision Mom"

Irons in the rooms?

I'm sorry if this has been posted before, but I didn't want to read through all the posts. Do the rooms have irons/ironing boards? I can't remember from previous visits to values if they do or not.

We just got back from a 5 day stay. We were in the Hoops building, our rooms were clean. No towel animals, though. I was a little disappointed with that. I was very satisfied with the resort, though. I went expecting just a hotel room, and that is what I got! My kids really enjoyed the theming, and we were not at the resort very much, anyway. I also noticed the fact that no one helps you, and no one gives up their seat, either. My cousin was holding her sleeping 2 year old, and no one would give her their seat. She had to hold him standing up.

I would definitely stay at this resort again. When we go to disney, we are never in our rooms, except to sleep. The only thing I really would have liked were the towel animals.

The last time I was there I only received towel animals 2 of the 7 days.
It all depends on who is the housekeeper.

Some people get them every day and others never receive them.

But it always puts a smile on my face when we do get them.

at sports, more times than not, guests will have a mickey head on the bed when first get to their room.

you are allowed to take the towel mickeys with you i was told.
the front desk cm told me that and i didn't believe her.
she had the supervisor tell me, yes, it is true.....


it was a bath towel twisted into a circle with 2 washcloths to make the ears on the mickey head.

when i was at sports in october, most of the rooms in my section had that mickey towel head on the bed.
i was at football building.
