Disney’s Value Resorts are known for their family-friendly theming, convenient food options, and (most importantly) low prices. After over two years of extended closure, Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort recently reopened. There are three Disney All-Star Resorts all located right next to each other, but today we’re feeling sporty! Is All-Star Sports a total score, or did Disney fumble the ball?
It’s been a while since we’ve shown off the rooms at one of Disney’s least expensive hotels, so come with us as we stay in a Standard View Room at All-Star Sports Resort!
As you can probably guess from the name, this resort is heavily sports-themed. Keep in mind that this is a Value Resort, so the hotel is designed to appeal to little ones and families.
When you first enter the hotel, you’ll find the main building, which is home to the food court, gift shop, and lobby. Outside, there are several large buildings each themed to a different sport!
No matter which building you’re staying in, the walk back to the food court is never very far — especially compared to the sprawling layouts of Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort or Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort.
There are two pools at All-Star Sports Resort; the main Surfboard Bay pool and the smaller (and quieter) Grand Slam Pool.
While Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort is known for its larger-than-life movie-themed decor and Disney’s All-Star Music Resort is known for its musical theming, All-Star Sports features Mickey and pals all geared up for a game.
We stayed in a standard-view room in the Surf’s Up section of the resort; room 6210, to be exact!
When you first enter, you are greeted with a bright, clean room with some colorful sporty decorations.
Off to the side, you’ll find a small table and chairs with a small mirror hanging on the wall for a last-minute makeup check before you head out the door.
Admittedly, the TV is a little smaller than some of the newer TVs at other Disney hotels, but you’ll probably find yourself spending most of your day in the parks anyway.
As is standard with every Disney resort, all hotel rooms come with a minifridge. This one has a few small shelves and spots to keep bottled drinks.
Our room featured two queen beds. There are two small lights over each bed and each light has its own light switch.
In between the beds, you’ll find a small nightstand with a large cubby space for extra storage.
Next to the beds is a small curtain, which serves as the divider between the living/sleeping space and the bathroom area.
On the other side of that curtain is a sink, as well as the closet area. This little section has a small safe, an iron and ironing board, a hairdryer, a few hangers, and a luggage stand.
There is one sink in the room, and guests receive a bar of complimentary soap as well.
As you can probably tell from the photos, the lighting over by the sink is a little yellow.
Inside the bathroom, there is a nice-sized bathtub and shower. Our shower was clean and bright!
Disney provides its signature H2O+ soaps and shampoos in every room.
That about covers the room! As you can see, it’s a pretty standard hotel room with some fun little Disney details scattered around the room.
While this room probably isn’t going to win any awards for best decorations, this room serves its purpose and gives guests all the same Disney benefits as a Moderate Hotel.
Our room at the All-Star Sports was great overall! It was clean, colorful, and conveniently located near the lobby. Although the Value Resorts might not be as fancy as the Deluxe Resorts, they’re great for families and guests looking to save a little extra money.
