This trip will be just me and the DW and we can save money by staying here, have a clean place to stay, Disney transportation, etc so the Food Court issue is not a deal breaker

I will say however that in May we did notice the same non-magical attitude among the CMs in the Food Court at Sports. Not quite rude but very much "don't expect me to wish you a Magical Day. You are on vacation but this is my job."

Anyway looking forward to the visit and a return to Disney!
That non magical attitude from some CM's at Disney has been going on for years and at all resorts and parks if you look for it. Some are extremely nice and really seem to enjoy people and their jobs. Others seem like they could take or leave people and it is just a job. Some are down right miserable and the guest is always a pain and so is their job. They just are not training the CM's like they did in the past, they make very low wages and with a lot their hours fluxtuate so much they couldn't get a second job if they needed and/or wanted to. Not that it makes it right to not do your job to it's fullest.

Hi all! Are the toiletries in the room still hand soap, body soap and a shampoo/conditioner mix? Trying to work on packing lists.

Have the coffeemakers in the suites been changed to the Cuisinart dual cup that are found in other resorts?
I got back yesterday. The answer to my question is yes the coffee makers are the Cuisinart dual cup machines.

All the suites are located in Jazz and Calypso. The only requests you could make would be for a floor, to be facing the pool or a quiet location. Last time we stayed in Calypso we asked to be 'not facing the pool' and we got the third floor behind the elevator. It was a great spot.

Do all of the rooms have the privacy curtain between the bathroom and sleeping area?

With the closure of ASSp food court, Disney plans to bus people to Music and Movies for food, do you think the ASMu food court will be swamped in September? Contemplating moving to POP.

I'm worried about this too but my DD is way too excited about staying at Music and swimming in a guitar shaped pool, I couldn't change if I wanted to. I don't think we'll eat at the resort food court too much... hopefully

I can not vouch for every room but the ones we stayed in had the curtain.

Pop has about half the number of rooms of all 3 All Stars combined so because of it's size it is always very busy.

I'm not totally sure but I think that there are usually teams staying at sports in September so you might want to consider moving to another resort.
