Disney's All-Star Movies Resort – Affordable Fun for Everyone

For families on a budget wanting to experience all the magic Disney has to offer, the All-Star Resorts are perfect!  The larger than life themes, bright colors, and familiar characters are sure to make your family smile.  The All-Star Movies Resort celebrates Disney films in five different areas.  Each area is themed around a beloved Disney movie: The Love Bug, 101 Dalmatians, Fantasia, The Mighty Ducks, and Toy Story

The resort is a Value Resort in the Animal Kingdom Resort area.  Transportation to all four parks, two water parks, and Downtown Disney is available by bus from in front of Cinema Hall.  Throughout the resort, there are wonderful places for photo ops with some of your favorite characters.  In The Love Bug section, Herbie the Love Bug is FIVE TIMES his normal size!  The Fantasia decorations stand three stories high.

All-Star Movies Resort has 1,920 rooms with either two double beds or one king sized bed, as well as a table and chairs, vanity area with a sink, and bathroom.  There are some handicap accessible rooms available, and pack and plays are available upon request.  Each room features a framed picture of the movie from the building it’s in,  as well as plenty of little touches, like a film border around the room and star-shaped lights over the double beds.  The rooms are comfortable and brightly colored.  They even include a mini fridge, which is perfect for all those Disney treats. 

All-Star Movies has two pool areas: the Fantasia Pool and Duck Pond Pool.  The Fantasia Pool, modeled, of course, after Disney’s Fantasia, features a Sorcerer Mickey fountain.  There is also a splash area for younger children to enjoy.  At night, be sure to catch the movies under the stars by the pool!  The Duck Pond Pool, which resembles a hockey rink, is modeled after The Mighty Ducks movie.


Cinema Hall is where you will find all of the action in this resort.  This is home to the World Premiere Food Court, which is open from 6:00am until midnight.  There are five “marquees:" pizza and pasta,  the grill, traditional fare, house specialties, and of course, the bakery and ice cream station.  Breakfast is served until 11:00am and when you can get that Disney favorite, Mickey waffles!  My daughter, who has celiac disease, had no problem getting hers gluten free.  In fact, she said that everything she ate, from the gluten free pasta to the gluten free cupcakes made by Babycakes was superb.  In Cinema Hall, you will also find a 24 hour front desk, a gift shop, and an arcade.


My family loved staying at the All-Star Movies Resort.  It was our first time ever staying on Walt Disney World property, and we had a blast exploring the hotel.  We found the theming delightful and magical, the food delicious, and the pools were great!  Whether this is your first trip or 100th, the All-Star Movies Resort is sure to capture your heart.

Paddlefish Restaurant at Disney Springs

After arriving in Walt Disney World around dinnertime with no reservations on our latest trip, we headed over to Disney Springs to see what was available and Paddlefish caught our eye with the beautiful boat shining on the water.  There was space for us at the bar where they serve the full menu, so we settled right in for what was about to be a delicious dinner. We started with cocktails and were very impressed by not only the cocktail selection, but also the bartender's knowledge and expertise on the menu to guide us through our selections tonight.  At the recommendation of the staff, we had to give the Lobster Corn Dogs a try for our appetizer.  These were so fun and very delicious (and I don't normally like lobster!) They are most like a corn dog in that they are on a stick, but don't let that stop you from giving these a try.  Next up it was time for our entrees, we both opted for options "from the port" since we were in a seafood inspired restaurant, we could

Fast Food Boulevard at Universal Studios Florida

Fast Food Boulevard is located in the Springfield section of Universal Studios Florida at Universal Orlando Resort and is a must-do for any Simpsons fan!  This home to several quick-service dining locations has something for everyone. It is a great stop that will make everyone's belly happy even if you aren't a die-hard fan. The food choices range from the famous Krusty Buger to pizza, from fried fish to salad, and even specialty non-alcoholic beverages and plenty in between. If the variety of food options wasn't enough to entice you, the theming is on point and you feel like you've walked into an episode of the Simpsons.  I especially love to sit in Moe's Tavern because it just gives me those Homer Simpson vibes and is a little smaller and out of the hustle and bustle of the main area. One of my favorite details is the mural of all the Simpsons characters on the wall, it's just amazing! And a great backdrop for a beverage or two.   At Luigi's you will find
