All-Star Sports Hotel – Get in the game at this Resort hotel that salutes the world of competitive sports, including baseball, basketball, football, surfing and tennis. Go the distance and don’t be afraid to celebrate your inner fan amid sporty décor starring some of your favorite Disney characters.
We’ve stayed at the All-Star Sports Hotel once. All-Star Hotels are great for travellers who want a cheap place to stay knowing that they won’t be in their room very often. What we’re getting at is it’s not an incredible hotel by any means. The rooms are small, the amenities are basic and the resort itself is massive. This means a lot of things…
The busing situation is okay. You have to use it to get to any of the parks, Animal Kingdom being the closest one. The lines get long for the buses because there are a ton of guests staying at the All-Star Hotels. The bus system for these hotels is shared so not only do buses come to the All-Star Music Hotel but they also make stops at the All-Star Music and All-Star Movies Hotels. Thus wait times can be longer because the buses can only fit some many guests and they are making stops at multiple hotels.
This means is can take longer to get to your destination. So why are these hotels so busy all the time? As we mentioned before pricing has a lot to do with it. Staying on property can be expensive but not here. Rates start in the $70’s per night during sales which is incredibly cheap! The hotel also offers a ton of rooms! Just over 1,900 to be precise! Walking to your hotel room from the lobby can take upwards to 10 minutes if you’re in the back of the All-Star Sports Hotel resort.
The overall theme of sports at the hotel is pretty fun. You’ll find it throughout the hotel including the buildings, pool and in the rooms. Don’t miss Surfboard Bay pool, the massive 242,000 gallon pool designed to make you feel like you’re at the beach! Close by is the Grand Slam pool that has Goofy shooting water at the swimmers. Their both really fun!
The End Zone Food Court is where you’ll get breakfast, lunch and dinner if you’re eating at the resort. Get there early for breakfast as it fills up fast! The resort also offers pizza delivery to your room if you want it. It’s made at a general pizza place at Walt Disney World then delivered to your room. This is because the service is available at several hotels. It’s just okay..
Our number one suggestion with this hotel would be to take an Uber or LYFT to get to the parks. It will be much faster than trying to deal with the bus. Secondly, get a preferred room if you can. It’s closer to the lobby and the bus area and makes a BIG difference with your overall experience.
