I’ve Stayed at EVERY Disney World Resort. Here’s What Makes All-Star Movies Worth It!

I have stayed at and reviewed every single Disney World Resort hotel — so I know a thing or two about the best places to stay.

All-Star Movies

Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort is one of Disney World’s cheapest hotels. Sure, a value resort might not have some of the more luxurious amenities you can find elsewhere in Disney World — but All-Star Movies still might be the right choice for you. This is why All-Star Movies could be worth it for your family!

Before we dive-in, you can get a full sense of this hotel and all it has to offer in my complete tour of the resort. Watch it right here!

Now let’s see what you need to know about All-Star Movies!

The Theme

All-Star Movies is one of three All-Star hotels themed to Disney movies you know and love. The other locations are themed to music and sports. This theme is larger than life with giant icons around the resort depending on what section you’re in — FantasiaMighty Ducks101 DalmatiansLove Bug, and Toy Story are all represented!

Of the All-Stars, this theme is often a favorite because it is the most Disney of any of the three — while still having the same less expensive prices.

This larger than life theming is something that you can see at a number of value hotels in Disney World. The All-Stars all have it as do Disney’s Pop Century Resort and Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. It’s great for kids and makes for a fun and vibrant stay in my opinion.

The Cost

All-Star Movies is one of the cheapest hotels in Disney World. In fact, the All-Stars are priced lower than any other Disney World hotel. Rooms range from $128 to $321 per night depending on season. Now, that’s still more expensive than other non-Disney hotels, but this is the cheapest way to stay on property, at an official Disney hotel, with all the included perks.

The biggest perks available to guests of All-Star Sports are free transportation around Disney World and 30 minutes of Early Theme Park Entry. That free transportation really helps with the feel of the “Disney bubble” — which a lot of guests value as making their vacation feel relaxing and magical.

With a less expensive stay, All-Star Sports also regularly serves as a hotel for large school and sport groups. This is something to keep in mind because large groups of kids and teens can certainly add to noise levels and general crowds around the hotel (especially the pools and transportation).


All-Star Sports is located in the Disney’s Animal Kingdom Resort area, closest to Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park. This puts it about 10-15 minutes to almost anywhere in Disney World by car. If you don’t have a car, you’ll be using the Disney bus system most likely.

Disney buses make it easy to get around but they do tend to take longer than if you had a car. Buses come every 20 minutes to various locations, so if you catch it at the wrong time, it could take you almost an hour to get from All-Star Movies to another part of Disney World. On top of that, the bus lines can get crowded — especially when bus routes are shared with the other two All-Star hotels.

Room Types

But let’s talk about the rooms! All-Star Movies offers one type of room that has two queen beds and a bathroom. It’s on the small side when it comes to Disney hotel rooms and has been recently updated. The renovated rooms have a fun movies theme with some of your favorite Disney characters. You can also pay a little bit more for a preferred room that will have a location closer to the lobby.

In my opinion, All-Star Sports is a great option if you will only be in your room when it’s time to sleep and get ready. If you are headed to the parks with every waking hour you can, then you probably don’t need a ton of space and amenities.

Dining Options

All-Star Movies doesn’t have a ton of dining options, but the ones available are pretty solid. World Premiere Food Court is the main dining location and offers a variety of food, from burgers to pasta.

Also, the pool bar has some fun pool drinks — including ones that feature Dole Whip!


As a Value resort, All-Star Movies doesn’t have a ton of amenities, but I am a fan of the ones that are available. The resort has two pools — the Fantasia Pool and the Duck Pond Pool. Not only do these pools have fun details themed to the areas they’re in, but you can also participate in pool activities and listen to fun tunes during your pool day.

Beyond that, there is more recreation with campfire activities, movies under the stars, a playground, a jogging trail, and an arcade.

If you’re looking for a real show-stopper hotel, you’ll probably need to shell out a bit more cash in Disney World. On the other side, true value will come from staying off-property. But, All-Star Movies is a great option for those looking for value while still hoping for some Disney magic (and Disney perks) — and I’ve really enjoyed my stays there.
