Teabags

We are going back to the All Star Sports after staying at POFQ for the last 2 trips. We drink a lot of hot tea. We get the unlimited drinks mug but at POFQ we had to ask a server each time for a tea bag. That got a pain when there was a long line of people waiting to pay, particularly as we drink a LOT of tea. Do they still have the tea bags at the drinks stations so you can help yourselves? Also what milk/creamer do they now use i.e. from a machine or those little cartons?

iPad and TV

Will I be able to connect my iPad to the TV via a HDMI cable?

The TV in my room had HDMI inputs but I don't know if the input channel was accessible.

I didn't see any tea bags in the drink area, and I think there were machines for creamer.

I saw the tea bags, they had the machine for creamer and a few of the little tubs of CoffeeMate creamer (although I think it was a flavored variety?).

I didn't book preferred, just requested it when I did online check-in. I was not charged for the preferred room.


We went to the Baseball pool but didn't want to walk over to Movies or Music since we went to Blizzard Beach Sunday afternoon anyway.

Does anyone know if the kiddie pool at ASSP is included in the closure for the refurb? Or is it still open?

Things that you would lose from a mod to a value is a hot tub/jacuzzi as the values just have a swimming pool. The mods have slightly bigger rooms. There are just food courts at the values, no sit down restaurants. Overall I prefer the values for savings, more money to spend elsewhere in WDW.

Posting back to let everyone know that the whole surf pool area is closed including the kiddie pool. I spoke to the front desk and they told me that the surf pool will now be a zero entry pool once the refurbishment is complete. And they didn't mention anything new about the kiddie pool but I'm sure the kiddie pool is just being refurbished and typical maintenance.

That would depend on your tollerance level for loud teenage girls. You will be sharing a resort, bus, and cafeteria with them and they will share their enthusiasm and cheers with you like it or not.
