An AllEars.net team member recently stayed at the All Star Movies Resort in Disney World. Just as with a number of other resorts, this resort is in the process of refreshing and refurbishing the guest rooms.
Our team member’s room was in the Toy Story section of the resort.
As with the recent refurbishment at Pop Century Resort, the rooms now have one queen size bed and one Murphy (hidden or pull-down) bed instead of two double beds in the room. The rooms also have laminate, wood-grain look flooring instead of carpeting.
As you can see in the photo above, and like in other refurbishments, the bed now has storage underneath it, a great place to store your suitcase during your visit.
A table is incorporated into the Murphy bed. When the bed is not in use you have a table, when the bed is in use you will not have a table. This is the only table in the room, it has replaced the table and chairs that used to be on the other side of the room when you entered.
When the Murphy bed is pulled down you’ll find fun artwork with Huey, Dewey, and Louie, and again representing all three All Star Resorts.
In the area where the table and chairs used to be in the room you’ll find a cabinet with the coffee maker and refrigerator.
A new, larger TV has also been added to the room
USB Ports and Plugs are available along the top dresser and in the nightstand.
Previously a curtain was used to divide the guest room area from the bathroom. That curtain has been replaced by a sliding door. That isn’t the only curtain that is missing — the shower curtain has also been replaced by a sliding door.
Refillable amenities are in the shower, along with a new “nook” for other items you may bring.
Just like the recent Pop Century Resort refurbishment, the bathroom is home to a lot more shelving and storage.
There’s even storage under the counter and sink. You’ll also find a magnifying mirror in the bathroom at this resort.
Overall, the color palette for this room is darker than the color palette used in the refurbished Pop Century rooms, however, other than that this refurbished All Star room is very close in design and layout to the new Pop Century rooms.
The extra storage in the room is a plus. Having to give up the table every night to use the second bed was a bit of an inconvenience, but workable. The room does feel cleaner without the darker carpeting and curtains dividing the room from the bathroom.
