“great time..however”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

I read the reviews prior to coming as others did, I had a great time with my nine year old son; however; as some of you have read the problem is the food is VERY expensive especially if you are trying to feed child/children. It is one big cafeteria, although clean and colorful. The housekeeping was wonderful, the room was a good size to me, maybe because it was just the two of us and we didn't come there to hang out in the room. (sleep and shower only) The pool and transportation the best. One of the front desk persons did misinform me on my park hopper ticket eligibility which upset me a little. I used a taxi ($40 roundtrip) to get to Walmart and bought everything my son and I needed for $63, versus the $36 I spent the first day for a hamburger, fries and oh yes the refillable cup. (I guess the cup will pay off if you let your child refill all day, but if your out and about at parks you will still have to buy drinks. Go figure). I would go again and refer to my friends/family, I'll just be better prepared for the cost of food. I cancelled the rental car (you don't need it at all!!) unless you want to get somewhere outside of Disney. I stayed five days.

Spent 10 days/9 nights at All Star Sports in June 2013 and got the Disney magic we expected. Room was a little cramped with a family of 4 but with an air mattress we made it work. This was our 4th visit to Disney and we satayed at the All Star Sports for every visit. The hotel staff was very accomodating and we were able to stay in a room location that we requested. Our room had a fridge so it was nice to go to the supermarket for breakfast food and save the meal plan dining for lunch and dinner where the value was greater. We had an enjyable time and will stay at "Sports" on our 5th trip in 2015.

The rooms were TINY! had to wait 45 mins for a bus to animal kingdom which is 5mins away! woke up sweating every night because the thermostat will only adjust 4 degrees either direction and the curtains block the vent. the bathrooms are tiny. the front desk doesn't care if you have a nice stay or not and won't do anything to help make it more tolerable. the day we arrived there was a spoon (not ours! and a towel behind the tv) it was still there the day we left. this has about ruined disney for me, and I may not return for a LONG while.

Poor reception service. Very slow no one seemed to be in any rush to help. Shabby buildings like Eastern European all tarted up. Rooms comfortable but compact. Housekeeping excellent. Food court is what it says. Like a giant school cafeteria. Try eating roast beef from plastic plates with plastic knives and forks. Kids loved the pool and the lifeguards are there from early morning to late at night. Transportation to other areas of Disney faultless. So long as you don't want great food this place is ok to lay your head.

I stayed here in early February. The rooms were relatively clean, with of course lots of mickey touches. The hotel consistently held the sports theme from the stairways to the paint on the outside of the buildings. this hotel also seemed to be the most crowded of the all star resorts. Nothing special however. One large food court was used by practically everyone at the hotel, so it was crowded and actually ran out of food at some point.

The resort is Disney so, of course, it was very clean. The rooms themselves are extremely small (I had read they were small but was still surprised by the size). We only had 2 adults & 1 small child though so we were fine given the limited amount of time spent there. We really enjoyed having the food court option for dining instead of sit-down restaurants. it was much easier at the end of long days. My biggest warning about this place though is the large number of big groups. While we were there, there was dozens of high school trip groups & they were loud outside our room until well into the morning hours. All in all though, we enjoyed our stay & would stay again.

Room Tip: Don't pay extra for an "upgrade" room. Just check in online as soon as you are able...

The room was disappointing, old and tired, and very small and cramped for a family of four, not even a coffee pot to make an early morning coffee etc !
The food hall was large but very expensive, and so busy by the time you got through the line to pay for food it was cold and not at all good ..
Had a drink at the pool bar one evening, was stunned at the high prices, and one particular bar tender never returned the change, was amazed at seeing him put our change straight into the tip jar, the change was $4,65 ..
Often the courtesy buses were a very long wait ..
The pool areas was very nice and and kept clean.
Overall very disappointing, once bitten twice shy, would never stay there again...
