All Star Resorts

Disney has resort options for every budget.  For many families, frequent visitors to Disney, and school groups, the All Star Resorts are great options!   The All Star Resorts are located in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Resort Area.  You can view maps of each of the three resorts: All Star Movies, All Star Sports, and All Star Music.  Each is set up with themed areas, with a few 3 story buildings in each section.

  • All rooms have entrance from the outside and thanks to the layout none are too far from the main building or pools.  Rooms have internet access (for a fee), cable or satellite TV, refrigerators, in room safe, crib, ironing board, and hair dryers.  Most rooms have 2 full size beds.
  •  Each resort has its own themed store in the main building where you can purchase souvenirs, sundries, and get packages sent from parks.
  • Besides pools, each All Star Resort has an arcade, playground area, and giant icons throughout the resort which make great photo ops.
  •  Each resort has 2 pools- a main larger one and a smaller one tucked away.  At All Star Sports the main pool is a Surf theme and the quiet pool a Baseball theme.  At All Star Movies the main pool is Fantasia themed while the quiet pool is Mighty Ducks.  And at All Start Music the main pool is the Three Caballeros and the quiet pool a Grand Piano Pool.

Tips:  Be sure to leave plenty of time for any early reservations for dining- buses leave only an hour prior to park opening which can make pre-opening reservations and reservations at other hotels tricky if you don’t take a cab.  Also, if you are looking for a quieter experience at these resorts (which are usually packed with families) then request the buildings farthest from pool (like Herbie the Love Bug rooms at All Star Movies) as they are the least requested and due to the size of the resorts walking straight through is usually not long or difficult each morning.

Dining options are plentiful with all three of these resorts being fairly close to one another.  You can find a complete overview of dining at the All Star Resorts here .   Each All Star Resort has its own food court which serves meals for breakfast lunch and dinner.  The End Zone Food Court at Sports, Intermission Food Court at Music, and World Premiere at Music.



Transportation to any Disney park or waterpark from the All Star Resorts is by Disney bus.  For a fun resort, with a lot of theming and great photo ops, the All Star Resorts are great!  If you don’t spend a lot of time in your room, and you need to visit Disney on a budget, you should consider these for your stay.

Overall, we give the All Star Resorts an “A”.

    I have always stayed at All Star Music and we love it. The pools are nicely themed and well maintained. The buildings are bright and cheery during the day and well lit during the night. The food court has tons of options that do include veggies and good portions (I am not a burger and fries all the time kind of person). I would love to stay deluxe one day, but this fits perfectly in our budget and while the kids are young, I like having the larger than life characters for them to look at.

    We’re thinking of staying at Music in January..only stayed at Sports so far and that was probably about 10 years ago

    We’ve only stayed at the Movies resort, and loved it! I’m anxious to stay at Sports in September! I know we’ll love it also! We’re not in the room much, and feel value resorts are great, budget friendly resorts!

    Would definitely do All-Star Music again…..despite the LONG (20 minutes) ride to MK, it was clean and well worth the “discount” of a value resort.
