What it is: A trio of value-priced resorts that differ mostly in decor instead of design. Each has multiple themed buildings, and all rooms are within walking distance to the main lobby. Rooms are standard with minimal decor, though each building is plastered in large-scale theming.
Great for: Families and groups of friends who will be maximizing their time in the parks and don’t mind where they stay, as well as park guests who prefer spending money on park experiences rather than lodging.
Avoid if: Your ideal Walt Disney World hotel room is inside Cinderella’s castle. Sure, there's Disney decor across the property, but it’s more colorful and in-your-face than classic or artistic.
Don’t miss: The other two All-Star resorts! It’s easy to walk between the trio, and the varied larger-than-life decor may very well be a fun attraction for your group.
Pro tip: All three resorts share a Disney Transportation bus at off-peak times, during which the pick-up and drop-off order is Sports, Music, and Movies. If theming does not matter to you, consider opting for All Star Sports because of this.
