we stayed in the Home Run Section in October, too. Left stairway, the third room on 3rd level on the opposite of the ice machine.

I wanted to ask for a room in that section, but after the long flights I was so tired that I forgot to ask at the front desk. We were even so tired that we slept on the ride in the Magical Express.

When we walked to the building and when I saw it I thought "ah that's what you forgot to ask, but well, you got what you wanted"





that Ironing-Board was broken. I just wanted to have a look and than I wasn't able anymore to retract it. We laughed about 1 hour because of that mistake. Housekeeping brought a new one. I felt so sorry, even if I didn't destroy it.


We really enjoyed our stay in the All Star Sports Resort!

We stayed in the Homerun section last year for 10 nights during FD in Aug. We loved it. We had a room on the ground floor right next to the pool. When I first saw our location I thought it would be noisy, but it was fine. There was only one night when people stayed in the pool later then they were supposed to and they were noisy. I was about to call the front desk, but they finally left - someone else probably beat me to it. The walk is obviously farther then a preferred room, but we didn't mind. We need the exercise from all the eating we do during FD!!!! This year we will be back at Music!!!

These are the closest to the main building\food court.
Thanks! We are requesting connecting rooms, so I probably cannot be too picky.

I am sure we will. We have a car, so we are very flexible.

Gathering more info for our first stay...

Anyone?

Are there ceiling fans in the rooms?

Is the air conditioning motion activated? If it is, what does this mean?

How wide is the doorway between the sink/vanity area and the bedroom area? Specifically, what methodologies work for hanging a privacy curtain of some sort?

Thanks everyone!

There is not a ceiling fan in the room.
Air conditioning motion activated I do not know.....anyone else know?
Exactly how wide???? no idea but you could put a tension rod between the walls and hang a curtain like a shower curtain tension rod.

Hope this helps????

If anyone else knows the answers to these questions please post them.

Thanks!

If the A/C IS motion activated, it doesn't get warm while you're gone, so you should be fine. People worry it will turn off while they are gone, and have left helium balloons to float around, but we have never needed to do this and always return to super cold rooms.

At what point do you make your building requests.........When we arrive at the hotel? I have seen online check-in on the website, can you request it then?

Thanks for any/all info, we are 1st-timers.

If you have your reservation made you can call & make your room request now. They will note it on your ressie. There is no guarantee you will get it, but you can try. The room will be assigned before you get there, so it won't work to do it when you arrive.

It does help! Bummer about the ceiling fans. We're in TX so we are very used to sleeping with them on and having the air circulate while sleeping. Ah well.

Knowing that a shower curtain sized tension rod will fit is the info that I need to know. Although, I have been reading about how some people use the command strip type hangers to hang some sort of privacy sheet. Anyone on this thread use these before? Any feedback on this idea? I'm the lone lady with my DH and DS so having some sort of private area for getting dressed is my goal, not as concerned with light situations...

This was the oddest thing that I had read? Never heard of this balloon idea. I'm glad to hear that it doesn't seem necessary. Traveling in August and especially needing to sleep in a room without the ceiling fan, we will probably keep the room fairly cool. It's good to hear the a/c works well!

When I tried to book Pop for our stay Sept 19-26 it was full. I ask CM which of the All Star resorts would be better, she said All Star Sports as the bus stops there first.

Where is the best spot to put the Pack'n Play in the room?

We always put it between the table and the window.

PS - we had to switch from POP to All Star Sports last trip, and we liked it pretty well. So look forward to it...it's different but still fun!
