Don’t Miss All the Fun at Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort
Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort has the best sports ambiance around! With the giant surfboards decor at the aptly named Surfboard Bay Pool, or the Grand Slam Pool that’s shaped like a baseball diamond, the sports references are plenty here.
These pools are a great way for resort guests of all ages to cool off after a long day of walking around the theme parks. You can also take a break during the day and head back from the parks to the hotel for a swim. Don’t worry, you can always get back into the parks later for the nighttime festivities. That’s a perk of being a resort guest.
The kids — oh, okay you too — will love splashing around in the Grand Slam Pool. Why? The lovable Goofy is pitching a stream of water at the swimmers so they can try to avoid getting soaked! The pool area is also decorated with a baseball “outfield” and baseball bats to make you feel like you’re right in the middle of the game. The Grand Slam Pool is a definite homerun for resort guests (we can do sports references too!). Other fun activities at the All-Star Sports Resort include movies under the stars (on a big football field, of course).
Lots of Food
All your theme park fun, swimming and sports talk will make you and the little ones hungry, of course, and sports just aren’t the same without such popular noshes as burgers, pizza, and fries. The End Zone Food Court has great options to choose from, including a mouth-watering barbecued pulled pork burger with cheddar cheese and fried onions, 3-Cheese Bacon Macaroni & Cheese, a variety of kid-sized meals for even the pickiest of palettes and a variety of desserts to satisfy your sweet tooth — waffle cones, Mickey ice cream sundaes, smoothies, ice cream cookie sandwiches, cheesecake, and more.
You will need a place to rest your weary head once you’re done with rides, parades and character meet-and-greets. Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort has 1920 rooms and each accommodate up to four adults or two adults and two children and come with basic amenities such as a mini-fridge and free WiFi.
There is free transportation to and from the parks — it’s called the Disney’s Magical Express — a perk for resort guests as well, so leave the driving to Disney. However, if you do have a car, you can also self-park that overnight for a small fee too.
Disney offers 25 resort hotels on their property to choose from when making your Disney reservations. The Disney All-Star Sports Resort opened on April 29, 1994. The other Disney value resorts include All-Star Movies, All-Star Music; Disney’s Art of Animation Resort; Pop Century Resort; and The Campsites at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort.
