What building are you in? Someone in Toy Story said they had a working fridge. Hoping they are moving along at a rapid pace as we are leaving in a little over 2 weeks and hoping for a working fridge.

Finally got rid of the crappy coffee. Looking forward to having decent coffee in the morning after all the years of the crappy stuff.

This was answered above, but my take on the same answer -- the rooms are the same, but it's the building location within ASMo that is different. Standard rooms are located in the Mighty Ducks and Love Bug sections. Preferred rooms are located in the Toy Story, Fantasia, and 101 Dalmatians sections.

I stayed in Mighty Ducks and it's only steps away from the 101 Dalmatians buildings, plus you have a quick walk over to the All-Star Music buses and food court too. It's actually closer than the Movies main building.

During my stay in July there was Joffrey's, and plenty of it!

Preferred/standard location is based on your room reservation -- a preferred room costs extra. Within your reservation you can make a request for a certain building, say Mighty Ducks or Love Bug for standard or Toy Story, Fantasia, or 101 Dalmatians for preferred.

But you can't book standard and then request Toy Story, which is a preferred building. It doesn't mean you can't be upgraded there or that Disney might assign you to a preferred room, but you should expect them to assign your room based on what you paid for.

Question Wondering....food court.

Wondering if ASMu and ASMo food courts will be refurbished next year. The ASSp food court is being rehabbed now, and it is taking 4 months. Anyone know if the other All Stars food courts are newer than ASSp and therefore not in need of rehab? Or do you think they'll be done in succession?

We have an 8:10am reservation at 'Ohana in October. What is the best way to get to the Poly from the All-Stars? From what I've seen on the transportation maps, it looks like the best option might be to take the bus to MK, then the resort monorail to the Poly. Also, what time do the buses / monorail begin operating in the AM?

Thanks.

Your idea is what I would do to get from an All-Star to the Poly. I want to say buses begin as early as 6:30am.

I wonder about this also. Sports is the oldest with Music next and then Movies. I plan on booking bounceback when we are there and I think I will be ok at Movies. Trying to remember how many years between when each was built. We stayed at Sports every year after it was built until Music was built and then we stayed there and then at Movies when that was built. I'm think that Sports is at least 20 years old. I don't know exactly where to find the info.

From allears.net:

ASMO~Reservations began being accepted in January 1998. The Mighty Ducks and 101 Dalmatians opened January 15, 1999, Fantasia and Herbie: The Love Bug opened in March, and the final section, Toy Story, opened in April 1999.

Disney's All Star Sports Resort was the first value resort built on the WDW property and opened May 1994.
