I know it is not guaranteed I will get that building, but doesn't hurt to try. I would actually rather stay in the baseball building, but it is in the far back and I am not sure how far the walk is. Happy planning everyone!
We were there last September and found that the ASSP was really nice. We stayed at the (Visitors) baseball building and yes, it was a little distanced from the main building, moreover that, at the time of our visit, there was a remodelation that closed (temporarily) the path between the food court and the lobby and/or the buses (blue line) so we had to follow a longer path in order to get to the lobby (green line, about 0.25 miles!).

I did not worry too much about the distance. My only problem was that, after a long day at the parks (think evening EMH, about 1AM), sometimes our 6-year old DD had to be carried asleep from the bus stop back to our room, and then every yard was really felt!! (orange line)

Some posters have commented that the rooms at the back of the No. 10 Touchdown building can be a little noisy, as they are near of the trucks loading area for the Resort (red circle).

Hope this helps,

Regards,

Luis

Yep, here's the link to WillCAD's awesome room location information:
http://************/maps/wdw/resorts/...ayoutlarge.pdf

So, using this location information and Will's great ASSp map (http://************/maps/wdw/resorts/resort_assp.jpg), you'd want somewhere in the room block of:

1st floor: 0158-0155 (Bldg 10) or 7110-7107 (Bldg 7)
2nd floor: 0258-0255 (Bldg 10) or 7210-7207 (Bldg 7)
3rd floor: 0358-0355 (Bldg 10) or 7310-7307 (Bldg 7)
** First number is building number (0 for Bldg 10), second number is floor number and the last two numbers are room numbers as per Will's info

HTH!

Edited to add:
His information is bang-on, so no worries about that. We got a room right in the block we wanted last year (Building 6, first floor, near the main hall) - we got room #6156!

i have stayed in so many different rooms at sports and all had plusses for the room locations.

last year i stayed in 1055, touchdown 10


this room is the end room, 1st floor and nearest the food court.

i had no issues with noise even though it was on the end of the foot ball field.

i have also stayed in the back side of touchdown 10.
think it was room 1055.
the trucks in the morning or late evening never disturbed me.
it was another ideal location.

another favorite room was at the extended arm that goes perpendicular to the other leg of rooms i mentioned above.

i had the second to last room on that end near the parking lot.
it was ideal as i could walk out of the room to the sidewalk path that traveled to the front of the lobby and be able to notice if the busses were there.

We are staying at All Star Sports for the first time, and I am happy to see that so many people were pleased with their stays. I requested Touchdown or Surfs Up since there were no more preffered rooms available. Can't wait!!!

We got back from All Star Sports a few weeks ago (I'm suffering from Disney blues now ), and we had the best time! We were in Hoops Hotel, building 3, floor 3, room 3360. It was perfect. No issues with noise - in fact, no issues with anything! We would definately go back.

Yep, true.

DSMom94:
For a standard room, you can request Touchdown, but not Surf's Up, sorry.
