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.

Top 10 Must Do's at Disneyland Paris

Disneyland Paris, formerly known as Euro Disney, opened on April 12, 1992. When traveling to different Disney parks, it's hard not to compare it to Disneyland in California or Walt Disney World in Florida. Each park is unique in it's own way. With so many wonderful attractions, it was a little difficult to come up with a Top 10 list. I would have picked "it's a small world", but that was closed when we were visiting. Here are my Top 10 things to do at Disneyland Park at Disneyland Paris: 10. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril, or Indiana Jones et le Temple du Peril in French, is a roller coaster attraction that travels up to 59 feet. It does go through an inversion and travels up to the speed of 36 mph. The attraction is on the shorter side but it was fun to experience this unique attraction. 9. Alice’s Curious Labyrinth Alice's Curious Labyrinth is a maze attraction in Fantasyland. The goal is to reach the castle of

Chronos Club Review at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort

I recently stayed at the Chronos Club at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. I've been a fan of Disney's Coronado Springs Resort since my first visit as it reminds me of my hometown, San Antonio. I've stayed in rooms ranging from preferred, Casita Suite, Tower King, and now Club Level access. The Chronos Club is located on the 15th floor of the Gran Destino Tower and can only be accessed with a key card or MagicBand to a corresponding Club Level reservation. I've previously stayed Club Level at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort, Disney's BoardWalk Inn, and Disney's Grand Californian Resort. These are all considered Deluxe Resorts. Something that makes the Chronos Club stand out is that it is located in what Disney considers a Moderate Resort. I was really excited to check out the difference in experience, since there can be a notable difference in price tag for Moderate vs. Deluxe Res

Carthay Circle Review

The Kingdom Konsultant team had the pleasure of being invited to the Disneyland Resort for agent training recently, and the first night the whole group was there, we went to Carthay Circle for dinner. The restaurant is a model of the famed Carthay Circle Theater, where Snow White debuted in 1937. The restaurant is elegant and beautiful, but not pretentious. They are used to people in theme park attire. We had trouble securing a reservation for 18, but we were able to get 3 smaller reservations and the restaurant was accommodating to seat us at tables next to each other. We had beautiful tables on the balcony overlooking Disney California Adventure and a dazzling sunset.  Some of us ordered entrees, some ordered appetizers but mostly we ordered a lot of things to share! Every table tried the Warm Cheddar Parker House Rolls, which were served with Calabrian Chili-Pine Nut Romesco Butter. These were delicious , and the butter was the real star.  Warm Cheddar Parker House Rolls & Calab
