Stay at a Disney Resort that celebrates the legends of Disney films. Oversized props and icons of Fantasia, 101 Dalmatians, and Toy Story are scattered throughout the Resort. Guests that stay here will experience what it is like to be a headliner at an all-star movie adventure.
The All-Star Movie Resort is the third and final Value Resort in the All-Star complex. There are 1,920 rooms spread over eight movie themed buildings. Disney movie fans will enjoy the decor throughout the Resort. Large icons such as a 40 foot tall Pongo and 35 foot tall Perdita from 101 Dalmatians, and a 35 foot tall Buzz Lightyear and 25 foot tall Woody from the Toy Story are scattered around the Resort. Cinema Hall is the main building of the Resort and features the front desk, food court, arcade and shops.
There are a total of five different movie themes at the Resort. Giant sorcerer’s hats, spell books, brooms and buckets are the theme for the Fantasia area. In the Mighty Duck area find giant hockey sticks, goalie nets and duck shaped hockey mask. Goalie nets that are 31 feet high surround the stairwells of the Mighty Duck buildings. Herbie, the famous VW Beetle is approximately five times his normal size in his themed area. A 40 foot tall Pongo and 35 foot tall Perdita can be found in the 101 Dalmations area. A 35 foot tall Buzz Lightyear and a 25 foot tall Woody make an appearance at the Toy Story area.
The All-Star Resorts are the best value on where you receive all the benefits of staying on Disney property at low rates. Convenient bus transportation throughout Disney World, ability to charge purchases at most of the resorts to your room, affordable food court, Disney service from the front desk or Guest Services desk, package delivery from the theme parks to the resort gift shop, and themed pool areas are some of the privileges that guests receive.
A typical size guest room is 260 square feet and up to four guests and one child under the age of three in a crib are allowed per room. Due to the low room rates, guests may want to consider adjoining rooms. The cost of two rooms may be lower than other options on Disney property.
Rooms are equipped with two double beds or one king bed, a table and two chairs, vanity area and sink with separate bathroom, a television, in-room wall safe, telephones with voice mail and data port. Small dorm-size refrigerators are available for a fee per night. Don’t forget to request a fridge when making reservations since supply is limited. Some king size bedrooms may have the fridge included.
Standard view rooms either overlook a parking lot, the central courtyard of your building, or the pool area. Generally you do not hear any significant exterior noise from the rooms; however the noise levels can vary. The All-Star Resorts attract families with young children or tour groups, cheerleaders and dance competitors. Guests looking for a more peaceful location may want to request a room in the Love Bug buildings since they are the farthest away from Cinema Hall and the pool areas.

If you decide to wait around until your room is available, you are welcome to take a dip or relax by the main pool area. There are lockers, changing areas and public restrooms for you to use. You can also head out to a theme park and start enjoying the Disney World magic while your room is being prepared.

World Premiere Food Court is a movie-themed food court featuring four unique dining shops and a deli-style market. There is a wide selection of quick-service foods such as baked goods, desserts, burgers, sandwiches, pizza, pasta and other favorites to choose from. There is also an outdoor pool bar adjacent to the food court and Fantasia Pool which offers light food and drink.
There are no casual dining restaurants in any of the Value Resorts. The closest full service restaurant is the Maya Grill at the nearby Coronado Springs Resort or Boma and Jiko at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. The All-Star Café at Disney’s Wide World of Sports complex and the Downtown Disney restaurants are also close by. Guests are also welcome to dine at any other Disney World Resort.
The best beverage deal at the resorts is the refillable mugs. Available for approximately $13, these sturdy plastic mugs can be purchased through any food court vendors and pizza delivery. The mugs are refillable for the length of your resort stay at any self-serve beverage island found in the food court area. Beverages include soft drinks, coffee, tea, iced tea and coffee and hot chocolate. Milk, fruit juice and alcoholic beverages are not included. The mugs are not refillable at any of the theme parks. This is a very economical deal if you are an avid pop or coffee drinker.
There are two pools at the Resorts. The hockey rink themed pool is found in the Mighty Ducks area. In the Fantasia area guests can join Sorcerer Mickey at the Fantasia pool, which also features a kiddie pool.
Climb, slide and play to your heart's content on the playground located between Fantasia and the Toy Story buildings.
Play a variety of video and pinball games at Reel Fun Arcade, located in Cinema Hall, right across from the Food Court.
To get to any Disney Resort or theme park you can drive yourself, take a taxi or use the wonderful Disney Transportation System. Disney Transportation includes buses, boats, the monorail and the Magical Express Service.
Theme Parks, Water Parks, Disney Resorts and the Downtown Disney area are accessible by the bus system. Buses travel on routes throughout the Resorts but do not provide direct service between all destinations and require transfer from one bus to another.
Bus service to the Theme Parks begins approximately two hours before opening. Generally buses will run every 20 minutes throughout the day and continue to operate until two hours after park closing. During peak times, buses can get a little crowded, but there is usually another bus that arrives quickly after so guests are not waiting long periods of time. Magic Kingdom is not accessible by bus from the Contemporary Resort, Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and Polynesian Resort. These Resorts provide monorail transportation to the park.
The Disney ferryboats connect the Magic Kingdom to the Transportation and Ticket Center, which is adjacent to the parking lot. Entering the park by ferryboat gives guests a chance to float by some of the Deluxe Resorts. This is also the best way to get the first glimpse of Cinderella Castle. If guests are staying at the Contemporary Resort, Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, Polynesian Resort, Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground or Wilderness Lodge, the Magic Kingdom is accessible by boat at their own water launches.
Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios are accessible by boat from BoardWalk Inn and Villas Resort, the Yacht Club and Beach Club Resorts and the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels. Downtown Disney is accessible by ferryboat from Disney's Port Orleans Resort and Disney's Old Key West Resort.
There are three loops to the monorail system. Loop A runs counterclockwise connecting Magic Kingdom and the Ticket and Transportation Center. Loop B runs clockwise along side Loop A and stops at the Ticket and Transportation Center, Polynesian Resort, Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, Magic Kingdom, Contemporary Resort and back to the Ticket and Transportation Center. Loop C runs from the Ticket and Transportation Center to Epcot including a quick tour inside the park around Spaceship Earth. Service generally starts an hour and a half before opening and ends two hours after closing.
If you bring or rent a car, there is plenty of free parking at the Resorts and parks. Depending on your room location, you may or may not be able to park close to your room. Ask when room selection is made.
