I thought I had read somewhere too that you are more likely to get connecting rooms when you have children under 18, which we do. I was curious if that was your situation when you requested the connecting rooms. I know that nothing is guarenteed.

From my experience when we have traveled with children we have always received a connecting room.

When traveling with just adults it has been hit or miss if we receive a connecting room or not.

Well, I wonder if it is true that you are more likely to get the connecting rooms when traveling with kids. It would make sense.

Hello all! I am currently trying to plan our FIRST family trip to Disney & my husband has requested that we stay at ASSp. We will have an almost 3 year (squeesing in a trip while she's still FREE! haha) in May 2011. I have read this through and I'm so glad to have such great trip reports on this resort! I've only stayed in Pop (back in 2005) and that was just one night.

Hello everyone!!

One of the few...I have actually read through all 62 pages of this thread before posting!

I just recently booked ASSp for the first week of free dining this year...August 15 to August 20. Finally, free dining before school starts! We didn't think we could go this year...so much up in the air with the possibility of moving that we planned nothing for the summer. However, with free dining and a lovely value price, we are able to sneak in a vacation before the end of summer.

Reading this thread has me all excited for staying at Sports! Never stayed here before. Never stayed value before. But I'm still excited.

Contrary to most requests, we want to stay in the tennis section! We are big tennis fans. Bigger football (soccer) fans..go USA in the World Cup!!!...but there is no football section.

We are driving and will be using our own car around the world so I think being in the back will be perfect for us! Love hearing about everyone's trips. Keep posting!

TxRabbit it is awesome that you are able to sneak in a trip.
In my opinion Tennis is the quietest section of All Star Sports.
You will have to give us a full report of your stay.

Have fun.....

We're staying at the All Star Sports for the free dining from August 15th-23rd. We have stayed at the All Star Music twice, but never Sports. Since we just booked the package, Sports was the only Value with standard rooms available, everything else was preferred. Since we're driving, we're hoping to get a room close to the parking lot. I think Home Run Hotel would be pretty cool, since DS plays T-ball.

We will be there from Aug 15th - 20th and our first stay at the AllStar Sports...!! I'll be happy anywhere they put us but was also thinking the Homerun section would be nice since DS plays baseball. Hope to read some more great reviews

DS and I are anxiously waiting for the day to get here.

It seems the most popular are Surf's up (this is the preferred room section) & football.
These are the closest to the main building\food court.

The Homerun Buildings look really cool. We've stayed in Football, both buildings, in the past. They are close to the food court and buses which is nice.
