This sports-themed hotel is one of three All-Star Resorts, these offer the opportunity to stay at a Disney Resort, for the best possible price.
Location of Disney’s All Star Sports Resort
Adjacent to the other Disney’s All star Resorts, this is classed as being in the Animal Kingdom area of Walt Disney World, meaning that Animal Kingdom is your closest park, and Blizzard Beach will also be close by.
Theming of Disney’s All Star Sports Resort
All Star Sports is, quite obviously, sports themed and was the first of Disney’s value hotels. Be aware that the sports featured are American, so don’t let your little one (or partner!) get excited about staying in a football room – because they mean American Football. Each building within the resort features a specific sport; Touchdown is based on American Football featuring helmets and footballs; Centre Court is tennis themed; Homerun Hotel is for baseball fans, illustrating giant bats, balls and scoreboards; Surfs Up has giant surfboards and lifeguard stands; Hoops Hotel features basketballs and megaphones.

Transport to and from Disney’s All Star Sports Resort
It is approximately 20-25 minute bus ride to each park. There is only one set of bus stops at the front of the hotel – so it can be a distance to walk if you’re near the back of the resort.
The All Star Resorts share a bus route. Usually, the buses will be dedicated to just one of the three resorts, but when really busy, or really quiet, the bus may stop at more than one Resort.
