AS Sports has become our favorite value resort! We have stayed at deluxe villas, deluxe resorts, moderates and values. I blame my father for turning me into the Disney Freak I am, lol. Unfortunately...he still remains a Disney freak....and DVC holder with not enough points to support my Disney habits. So....I've done my own thing with my 3 boys...(16, 9, and 6) for the last 8 years. The boys love the theme of each AS. I started with Movies....then left it up to the boys. I can't afford more than a moderate for the length of time we go. So....they understand that if they pick a deluxe....we will minus days. They want more days!!! (So do I!) So...I can stay at a value for 2 weeks compared to a deluxe for less than a week. What would you do? At this point...we shower and sleep....might spend an afternoon or two at the pool. That's it. We loved CBR pool area....had a great time with the kid area....but when asked....the boys like AS Sports....and want to return every time. They were a bit angry when the football field was under construction on our last trip home. They are so excited to see it now!

Subbing in since it looks like my May trip is on. I'll be staying at ASSp for the first time, just me and my 10yo daughter, for the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouting event.

Does anyone know how room assignment works for group events? Is it worth requesting a particular location or does that only apply when booking as an individual? I'd really like to be in the baseball section because she plays and I know she'd love it!

I read some places that Touchdown is preferred and some places say it isn't. Does anyone know? I want to make a room request, but have only booked the standard rate, so want to make sure I'm not requesting a preferred building.

i know positively.
after over 15 stays there, i can answer your question.


Surf's Up, both buildings are the preferred ones.
they have the best view of the larger pool.

Touchdown 7 faces the fb field and the backside is a view of scenery or other buildings.

Touchdown 10 faces the field and parts of the backside, faces the parking lot. both buildings have the Tshape.
both are near the main building.

parts of Surf's Up extends back and TD 7 in parts is closer to the main building.

i always stay in touchdown.

hey we'll be there at the same time May 6th (maybe arriving late the 5th) - 11th - just a quickie trip!

It's our first stay at Sports and I"m looking forward to it!

Question DD loves the look of the football section and wants to stay there - I like to aim for a quieter/ less crowded section yet one that is close to Music (in case we decide to hop back to that Food Court).

Comments/ Suggestions?

Looks like my family that will 10 of us will be staying here in September for Free Dining! I have just a few questions!

1. We only paid for standard rooms, how far out are we going to be?

2. How are the buses during what should be a slower time?

3. Any recent refurbs? New televisions or bedding like the other values?

4. Any other great information you would like to share?

Ok I have stayed here before but can't find the link I need. Does anyone have the link to a map of sports that has the room numbers? The normal map has like 1101-1164...but I want the map that tells exact room numbers of the rooms facing the pool...anyone"?

maybe a silly question but does she 'know' they're real fridges (like in the moderates and the fridge swaps) or could they be the "beverage coolers" that people have been talking about (a lot smaller and won't keep things like milk/ yogurt cold enough)??

I posted exactly what Deb posted on Facebook this morning. She's a very reliable source and I would think that she would have said beverage coolers if that's what they were. I'll keep a watch on Facebook and post more if she does.

Is there anyway to find out if any sports groups will be there on our dates. 5-28-6-7?

Also, have they put in the privacy curtains in the sink area that the POP has

Thanks
