All-Star Sports Resort
Gigantic football helmets, megaphones, surfboards and basketballs team
up with value prices to score a winning Walt Disney World vacation at
Disney's All-Star Sports Resort.
Guests are greeted by bright colors and the whimsy of Coke cups big
enough to hold a resort swimming pool, baseball bats a 50-foot-tall man
could use on his field of dreams.
The 1,920-room family resort sports five themes: football, baseball,
basketball, tennis and surfing. Convenient transportation to all Disney
attractions is offered.
Music, landscaping and lighting create sports scenes -- palm trees arranged
to look like a basketball team at tip-off, a courtyard that resembles
a football field, a pool in the shape of a baseball infield, and neon
and fiber optics highlighting the main icons.
Red, white and blue star-shaped seating, caged lighting such as in a
basketball gym, and miniature red lockers delight sports fans at Stadium
Hall, the resort's main check-in area.
Sports scenes such as surfing and football decorate the walls in the
End Zone food court. Giant sports figures sit atop brightly colored green,
blue and red dining booths. A selection of food is offered -- from pizza,
pasta and roasted chicken, to barbecue and salads. Also featured: the
All-Star "bottomless" mug, which can be used for unlimited refills at
the food court's beverage island during the length of stay.
The name of the game is athletics in the guest rooms, which feature
sports-themed bedspreads, megaphone light fixtures and artwork depicting
sports scenes. Standard guest rooms sleep four. Non-smoking rooms, connecting
rooms and disabled-accessible rooms are available.
Other guest areas include Team Spirits pool bar, Sport Goofy Gifts & Sundries,
Game Point Arcade and coin-operated washers and dryers.
