Now that summer is almost over and families are wrapping up their vacations, we are just beginning to plan our big trip! Our Walt Disney World Seasonal Passes are blacked out during a majority of the summer months, but we’ve only got a few weeks left before we can go see Mickey and Minnie!
During part of our upcoming stay, we are returning to Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort. We first stayed at this property in January 2012 and loved the fantastic, family-friendly atmosphere and as sports lovers, we fell in love with the decor!
Considered a value resort, the property has five different themed areas – Home Run Hotel, Hoops Hotel, Touchdown!, Surfs Up! and Center Court. Because we are big football fans, when we checked into the resort, we asked (nicely) for a room in the Touchdown! area and they were able to accommodate our request!
The standard room at the All-Star Sports resort offers two double beds, a small table and chairs and a mini-fridge. We were able to save a little money by bringing our own breakfast foods. Even though there isn’t a microwave in the room, they are available in the food court area.
As like the other value resorts, the All-Star Sports Resort has exterior rooms, so I was initially concerned about the noise level. However, I was happy to learn that there are enforced quiet hours, so the noise was never an issue! We were well rested each morning ready for the parks!
The End Zone food court was large and had the usual foods – burgers, chicken, pizza and my favorite… the Rice Krispies Mickey Mouse shaped treats. My husband was especially excited to see large screen televisions showing ESPN. I was excited to see there was a kids table filled with crayons and Disney pictures for the girls. They were in heaven!
If you’re looking for a playground – you are in luck! My girls love playgrounds and I love them because it’s a great place for me to relax. The All-Star Sports Resort playground is tucked in between buildings, shaded and a great hideaway spot.
I’m excited to stay in this resort again next month. In typical Disney style, it’s incredibly family-friendly and affordable for all budgets. From the ease of check-in, to the warm hospitality of cast members – we felt right at home. On our next visit, I’m hoping to stay in the Surf’s Up section – closest to the pool!
