All-Star Sports Resort

 I have been reading a lot of blogs all over the internet, and it seems that value resorts get a bad rap. But trust me, I have stayed at all the value resorts and some of the others, and I love the values.

 All Star Sports is my second favorite resort. You will be immersed in a world of super size sports equipment. If you are a sports fan, you will love it even more.

 Basketball, baseball, football, surfing and tennis are all represented here. All Star Sports was the first value resort built on Disney property in 1994.

 Each room consists of either 2 double beds, or 1 king bed, basic sink, mirror, table, 2 chairs, dresser, phone ,tv, mini fridge, free wifi etc.

There are 2 pools. The largest one by the front is surrounded by large surf motif. In this area you will also find a kiddie pool. The other pool is shaped like a baseball diamond. Make sure you grab towels before you leave your room.

 All around the themed areas you will see some of your favorite Disney characters playing various sports. These make for great photo ops.

 To eat you will enter the End Zone food court. They serve the average fun foods like burgers, fries, chicken, pizzas, sandwiches and salads. Since the remodel food is even better here. My favorite is the chicken alfredo. You can also have pizza delivered to your room. Just pick up your phone and order it and it will be delivered to you. (From 5-pm-12am.)

 The store here is called Sport Goofy. In here you will find a lot of sport themed items and all your basic souvenir needs. There is also a small food store where you may get your milk for your room, its cheaper here. The store is open around 8am.

 For those of you who like to enjoy a little cocktail or unwind after a day at the parks, you will enjoy Grandstands Spirits pool bar. Be sure to get the Citrus Blast.

 One of my favorite things to do is movies under the stars. There is nothing nicer than getting out of the pool, all cooled off, and sitting under the stars watching a Disney movie with some snacks.

 Bus transportation- For those who use the buses they are located out in front and are for the most time on time. The best kept secret, the reason I love this resort is when the bus is packed, you get on first and are dropped off first. During the day you will usually share the bus with movies music unless the bus is full.

 This resort has a fun little arcade with up to the minute games for the gamers.

 For the fit people, there is a jogging trail where you can get your exercise in, but I see many people early in the morning jogging around the complex.

 For the smaller kiddies there is a nice little playground near the touchdown area.

By the pool you will find also a laundry area, its so much easier to pack less and do a load of wash. Washers and dryers as well as soap products are available for your washing needs.

 So what do you think, does this sound like a place you'd like to stay? Let us know in the comments or on Facebook at  Addicted to Mickey
