We were here in October for 4 nights and had requested a room close to the center walkway of the resort to try and keep it simple for an elderly member of our party. We also did on-line check-in. They put us in a room as far to the back as possible and facing the weeds and cars. Elderly person was so confused trying to find this room after going to the food court. They told us that not only are the surf buildings preferred locations (which we didn't want due to the noise), but also the football buildings are now preferred. I was in the football building during another stay and was kept awake all night from delivery trucks, so I wouldn't prefer that building either. They also said the computer assigns the rooms and doesn't read your preference so I will never do on-line check-in again. Aside from the miserable location for the room, the mattress was so soft we woke up with horrible back aches each morning and the pillows were so flat, it took 3 to feel like we even had a pillow. The bus stop is nice in that the stops are marked off for everyone to line-up for the bus they want.

Concierge tried to help us with adding a day to our magic your way tickets (we checked in on the day the tickets changed). We were there a few more days than we had tickets for and wanted to skip 1 day. They told us it would cost $56 or $58 to add a day to our 5 and 6 day passes and then if we wanted to be able to skip the 1 day, we would have to buy a flex pass and that would cost a total of $111 each (yikes!). We decided to wait and see if we really needed the extra day and then I stopped back the next night at concierge and they called guest relations and we were told that we needed to go to guest relations before we used the tickets and that they could make the adjustment for us the old way. We ended up stopping at guest relations the next day and although it took 1.5 - 2 hours, they were able to help us add another day at the old prices.

The food court and store are just as nice as the other resorts. The buses worked our great for us and Sports is first with the bus stops when sharing with the other value resorts which came in very handy.

I always liked this resort, and they are always nice to work with at concierge. It was just too difficult with the room location and having an elderly person.

Oh, I was beyond shocked when I saw the prices in the food court at a Value resort. I think a cheeseburger was $19! I had a turkey and gravy dinner with a veggie for $13 or $14.

Pros:

Small resort with lines properly marked for the buses and first stop for the value resorts. They had an alarm clock in the room! (The moderate resort didn't.)

Cons:

Very uncomfortable mattresses and pillows. There are rooms in the back that make you feel like you're not even in the resort and rooms up front that are too loud if you want to rest when the pool is open.

We stayed at All Star Sports the last week of August and we loved it! The rooms were nice, nothing too fancy but it is a value resort! The food at the food court was amazing and not at all what we expected. We didn’t wait long for buses and one night it rained and they had games and activities in the main building to keep the kids occupied. If we had one negative things to say, it would be the location of one of the smoking areas it was right outside the exit/entrance of one of the doors to the food court. We would definitely stay there again, my oldest son (8) is a big sports fan and loved the sports decor, my other son (7) loved the pool.

Pros:

Food court, sports decor, pool

Cons:

Location of one of the smoking areas

Good value for your money. It's not fancy, but the beds are comfortable, the food court is decent, and you're on Disney property

Pros:

The whole resort is compact and not too spread out, the food in the food court is really good for a quick service, especially at dinner

Cons:

Not a lot of amenities, bus loading area is really small and unshaded

This is not the best Disney hotel, but it is for the price that's why I give it 10/10. If you want to stay on property and stay for a budget this is the place to go.

This is essentially the same as all the All Star hotels, just themed sports.

You get the same service you get with any Disney hotel, I actually have gotten some of the best service here.

The is the best of all the All Star because if you take the bus and they got to multiple stops this is the first hotel, so you will get on or off the bus first.

It is often busy and when there are big sport events all the teams often stay here.

Very large pool, the quick service food is good, the store is good.

Pros:

For buses it's first stop for all the All-Star, best prices with same Disney service for an Disney owned hotel

Cons:

Often busy, teams will stay here

Pros:

Quiet rooms

Cons:

Lobby area only had 2 people handling online check-in. Courses very slow. Took us about 30 minutes in line and 30 minutes with cast member to get room assihned, even after online check-in 3 days prior to arrival.

We have stayed on grounds at Disneyworld for our past several trips, but we especially like All Star Sports, and never so much as our last trip. We had the good fortune/misfortune to be at Disney for Hurricane Irma. Being originally from New Orleans, this was not our first experience with a hurricane. It was, however, our first experience at Disneyworld. I cannot say enough about the actions of everyone there. Every single person, from the maids to the cashiers to the concierge desk cast members were so kind, so helpful, so patient and friendly, it was unbelievable. They were overwhelmed and often treated poorly by people who were angry and frightened, yet their level of service never faltered. They prepared huge amounts of food for greater numbers of people then ever expected, prepared all of us for what was coming, even if it meant they weren't sure if they would be able to get home themselves. But Disney provided for all of them as well. As far as we are concerned, they went above and beyond in every area, even opening their doors to stranded motorists wherever they had vacancies. We will always go back, and, in fact, are going back in March. Thank you, Disney!

Pros:

All things, Disney, especially to cast members.

Cons:

None!
