Every year Walt Disney World draws scores of visitors from around the world. This means Disney needs tons of resorts for these guests to stay at during their visit.
Today we will be looking at the five Value Resorts at Walt Disney World and how AllEars readers ranked them.
All Star Sports – 7.06/10
The All Star Resorts are often grouped together, and that is because they are essentially identical in terms of room layouts and amenities, but where they differ dramatically is themeing. The lowest reviewed is All Star Sports, which is exactly what it sounds like, a sport themed resort. There are giant football helmets, tennis rackets, and footballs decorating the buildings. If you have a sports fan in your family this is the Value Resort for you.
All Star Movies – 7.62/10
This is the second of the All Star Resorts and the one with the most obvious Disney themeing throughout. With areas divided into a Toy Story area, a Fantasia area, a Mighty Ducks area, and a 101 Dalmatians area. The layout, number of pools, and food offered is very similar to what can be found at both All Star Sports and Music. If you are looking for a resort that screams Disney, this is the All Star Movies Resort may be right for you.
All Star Music – 7.73/10
The final All Star Resort — and the highest ranked of the three — is All Star Music, which like its name suggests, is a music themed resort. The decorations on the buildings reflect different music genres. There is a Country section adorned with giant cowboy boots, a Rock section covered in electric guitars and a jukebox, a Broadway section complete with a ticket booth and blacktop, and a Calypso section with maracas. There is even a Three Caballeros statue in the pool near the Calypso section.
Pop Century – 7.79/10
Pop Century is very similar to the All Star Resorts, but each area celebrates a different iconic decade. The decades represented at the resort are 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s. Each area has decorations from that decade, like Rubik’s Cubes, hippie flowers in the pool, a Lady and the Tramp statue, and an 8 track staircase. The dining area at the resort — called Everything Pop — serves a special tie-dye cheesecake that you can only get there. In addition to the Disney buses, Pop Century also has access to the Skyliner.
Art of Animation – 8.32/10
Art of Animation is the newest of the Value Resorts in Disney World and celebrates what has helped to build Disney into the powerhouse it is: animation. The different areas of the resort are themed after four iconic Disney animated films: Cars, Finding Nemo, The Lion King, and The Little Mermaid. This resort is perfect for large families with kids because the majority of the rooms are family suites that can sleep up to six plus an under-three-year-old in a crib. The resort is heavily themed, and there are animated touches all over. Art of Animation also has access to the Skyliner at the same stop as Pop Century.
