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.

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

Royal Caribbean - Taste of Sabor Experience

I recently sailed on Royal Caribbean Cruise Line's Liberty of the Seas for my Honeymoon.  The trip itself was quite amazing, but we had a special dinner at Sabor that wasn't on any pre-planning options.  While at dinner at the Chef's Table earlier in our cruise, a nice gentleman from Sabor came by and told us about a similar experience they were trying out at that restaurant.  Of course we decided we had to give it a try! We got the menu to look over and our host for the night came to greet us and go through what to expect etc. This was a new thing they were trying, so we didn't really know much about it going in other than "if you liked the Chef Table, come try this!" He was wonderful, and we had a great time with him. We were at a big table off to the side as you went in (our whole Chef's Table party decided to go for this, so we were old friends at this point!) The table was semi-private, but still somewhat part of the normal dining area so we could pee

Topolino's Terrace Breakfast Review

Breakfast at Topolino's has been getting quite the hype since it opened, so I was thrilled when I snagged a reservation with my fellow Agent Maci on our trip to celebrate Magic Kingdom's 50th birthday. This restaurant is located on the 10th floor of Disney's Riviera Resort, the newest to open on Walt Disney World property. The décor is modern and bright, with floor to ceiling windows and a balcony to continue to take in the views right outside. Breakfast is a character dining experience, with Mickey and friends being dressed in their artsy best! Park attire is welcome, but you could just as easily get a little fancy and feel comfortable. We were told it would be about 10 minutes so we went to the bar where I ordered a Bellini and Maci got a Mimosa, light on the OJ! The excellent bartender barely had time to make our drinks before our table was ready. We were quickly greeted by our server Chris from Orlando and we're pretty sure we found the OG! For
