Disney’s All-Star Resorts are the perfect option for families looking to stay on-site at Walt Disney World – without breaking the bank. There are currently (3) resorts in the All-Star lineup, but I’m going to share with you my favorite – All-Star Movies. All-Star Movies is the newest of the All-Star Resorts, boasting (10) themed buildings housing a total of 1,920 guest rooms. There are recreation options here for adults and kids alike!
Here is my list on the top 10 things you must check out at Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort.
- Take a dip in one of the two pools – the Mighty Duck themed Duck Pond Pool or the main Fantasia Pool. At the main Fantasia Pool you can find a larger-than-life Sorcerer Mickey water fountain for added pool fun. Beside the main pool are two water play areas for the younger Mouseketeers. Here you’ll find a kiddie pool and smaller water play area. Need a life jacket? They can be found on the pool deck!
- Kids can run, climb, slide and run off some energy at the playground located between the Toy Story Building 9 and Cinema Hall.
- Grab a meal or snack at World Premiere Food Court. Here you’ll find (5) food stations serving items ranging from pizza, pasta and ice cream to other traditional favorites. You can dine in for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
