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.

The 6 mile long Disney Skyliner opens at the end of the month in Walt Disney World, and we are now starting to hear confirmation of some of the operational details.

As expected, lightning will be addressed by the Skyliner system closing when lightning is forecast. The system does feature lightning protection, but Disney will obviously be keeping guests out of the sky during bad weather. Bus service will be available during weather closure of the Skyliner.


Disney Skyliner is able to carry 10 guests per cabin, and guests may also travel with strollers, wheelchairs and service animals.

There are five stations in total covering the 3 lines - at Caribbean Beach, Pop Century/Art of Animation, Disney Riviera Resort, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot International Gateway. Caribbean Beach is the main gateway and you will transfer there to each destination.

Although Disney Riviera Resort doesn…
