NEWS: Opening Date DELAYED for Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort

It’s been well over a year since Disney World reopened after closing temporarily at the beginning of the COVID-19 global pandemic, but many restaurants and resorts have yet to reopen.

Most recently, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge and Disney’s All-Star Music Resort welcomed guests back, but there are still three hotels that remain closed. And, it looks like guests will have to wait a bit longer to return to one.

According to a notification shared with Disney Travel Agents, Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort will not reopen on December 9th as originally announced.

Instead, Disney will be keeping the hotel closed to “refresh the Sports theme area” and will announce an opening date at a later time.

  1. Hey Molly it’s Brad … The Mouse maybe be magical but has to deal with building supply shortages like the rest of us, we’re doing a roofing job on our horse barn and getting roofing supplies is hard right now … I can imagine trying to wrangle up what’s needed to do all those hundreds of rooms. We like the All Star’s Music (an your tour an room update video) and plan to go down and stay there next year for ’22 Flower & Garden. So I understand why it can take longer.

  2. Hmmm….this sounds to me as if the number of bookings that Disney thought would happen are not proceeding as planned and they are keeping the All-Star Sports resort closed as a cost cutting move.

    1. You’re probably right. I’m hoping that the reason people are staying away is because of the prices and not just back to school time. I really hope people are protesting with their wallets.
