Some of these may be repeats. If so, sorry. I'm going back in November and in December. If I get a chance to stop at any of the All-Stars for any reason, I'll get some more pictures. Most of these are dark because it's early morning, but hopefully they'll help some who have never been kind of tell what the resort is like.











DJT - These pictures may help to answer your question about how early I was at the food court. I'm guessing it was just a few minutes after they opened.

I'll be there in 19 days and will post pics when I return.

Last July (06) when we were there, the new airline guidelines weren't in place. I packed juices and bottled drinks in our carryons. We can't do that this year, and I won't check them. 2 L cokes are listed as snack credit items on the DDP board. Just curious if anyone here has used snack credits for 2 L drinks there? I'm not really interested in the mugs-don't want to tote them around. I'm planning to take breakfast food (poptarts, powdered donuts, etc.) and paper cups, and buy a few 2 L drinks and have breakfast on the way to the bus stop in the mornings.

When we were there in November 06 the 20 oz cokes were a snack on the DDP. We have never seen 2 L Cokes offered anywhere.

Shhhh...I'm sleeping.


I go to bed when everyone else does, but then I wake up within a few hours and can never get back to sleep - usually anywhere from about 2:20-3:30. It's so annoying, and I wish I could sleep like everyone else, but it is the rare time that my alarm goes off, because I'm usually already awake and going by the time it should sound.

I'll look forward to your pictures. This is a super short trip in November, so I doubt I'll get over there, but I might. My oldest son has not been with me on either of my Sports stays, so I'd like him to see it, if possible, so I'm going to try to get there. I'm glad the thread was started. I think it is helping those who have never been look even more forward to going.

Thanks for the new pics MeMom, they're good to see, everything seems clean and neat on them, which is always lovely to see, true Disney styling!

I can't wait to arrive there next April and get some pics of my own, I'll have to take plenty!!

We'll also be at the Sports Dec 9 - 12. My son is a sports fanatic & will get a huge kick out of it. I did request a standard room at the Touchdown building. Hopefully I'll get it. I would also love to see pics & find out which buildings are reurb'd.

I just got back a few hours ago. I requested Touchdown building 7 (I had heard #10 has not been refurbed, and someone staying there this week confirmed it-rumor is that they will become suites), but I got a refurbed baseball room. It was really nice-great pool and close to the laundry room.

I haven't been able to read all the posts yet, but I am glad this thread was started. I have stayed at Sports 2x and really enjoy it! I'm always surprised at the bad press it gets on these boards. My family's favorite section is the baseball one (Homerun Hotel). Partly because we are huge baseball fans, but mostly because the kids like swimming and it is right by the less busy pool.
Thanks to the OP for starting this thread!

SmallWorld71 why do you think All Star Sports gets bad press?
Deserved or not deserved?
