All About Disney's All-Star Movies Resort


All-Star Movies is one of the most popular Value Resorts on Disney property, and after a recent stay there, it's easy to see why!  All-Star Movies recently underwent a room renovation to give everything a fresh, modern look and we are loving the layout and space the updates provide.  This resort is popular with families and value-seekers alike with great price points with Disney inclusions and over-the-top themes that make you feel like you are surrounded by some favorite Disney movies.

The All-Star Resorts (including All-Star Movies) are a part of Disney's Value resorts, which means they offer the great perks of staying on Disney property at some of the most affordable prices you will find.  Staying at this resort will let you take advantage of Disney's Magical Express from MCO, bus transportation around Walt Disney World Resort, MagicBands and charging privileges throughout Walt Disney World back to your room and resort package delivery (to name a few!).

Let's take a little photo tour through the resort.

First up, the lobby and main building area.  This includes the front desk, gift shop, and food court all centrally located for your convenience.  The Disney buses pick up and drop off here as well. Right behind the main building, there is a big pool and laundry facilities for guests to take advantage of too.

Lots of loungers by the pool. 

The main building is also home to the World Premier Food Court and attached Silver Screen Spirits Pool Bar.  This area can get a bit busy but they offer all of the basics to make sure there is something for everyone to eat.  It's open breakfast, lunch and dinner, offers mobile order and there are even room service options!  If you are feeling adventurous, ask about their secret menu too!

As you explore around the resort, there are several theme areas based on different Disney and Pixar movies, from the Mighty Ducks to Toy Story, I highly recommend just taking some time to walk around and see all the fun icons around!  There are also other, smaller pools at some of the other building areas.

The 101 Dalmatians area is a Kingdom Konsultant favorite because it's centrally located, close to a pool, and the theming is just too cute!

On my last stay at All Star Movies, I was assigned a room in the Toy Story section.  The layout of the rooms is a queen bed and a Murphy bed/table combo which I felt really helped make the room feel bigger when the bed was up.  I'm a big fan of the neutral tones and Mickey artwork throughout the rooms.

All rooms have a mini fridge, ice bucket and coffee maker

Nice TV and storage area

Lots of counter space in the bathroom!

The split bathroom is great for busy mornings

Another great perk of the All-Star Resorts is that they are all walking distance to one another.  One night, we hopped on the All-Star Music bus and walked through their lobby and off to our room to take in their fun decor as well.
You can even pool hop if you are feeling so inclined!

You Must Be This Tall to Ride... Universal Orlando Resort Edition

Universal Orlando Resort has branded itself as the more grown-up vacation destination in central Florida. With advertising campaigns like "kids grow up, so do vacations" and "grow bolder", it should be no surprise that there are many attractions at the Universal Theme Parks with height requirements.  If you're visiting the Universal Orlando Theme Parks with little ones, it's very important to familiarize yourself with the ride height requirements so you know which attractions your little ones can, and can't ride, based on their height. You'll find these helpful signs with height requirements for all of the attractions when you enter the Universal Orlando Theme Parks. Universal Studios Florida 34 inches - E.T. Adventure 36 inches - Woody Woodpecker's Nuthouse Coaster 40 inches - Despicable Me Minion Mayhem 40 inches - Fast & Furious - Supercharged 40 inches - Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon 40 inches - The Simpsons Ride 40 inches -

Morimoto Asia at Disney Springs

Morimoto Asia at Disney Springs is one of my go-to spots for a great meal.  The restaurant itself is beautiful and I've had so many great meals there over the years. Chef Morimoto is a relatively well-known chef after appearing on Iron Chef America as one of the original Iron Chefs, so when he opened a restaurant at Disney Springs I was so excited to give it a try being a fan of the show and of Chef Morimoto.  This restaurant brings his masterful Asian cuisine to Florida in his first "Pan-Asian" concept.  With 20-foot chandeliers and glass walls giving a peek into the kitchen and a sushi bar upstairs, there is something to catch everyone's eye here. In October, they had specialty spooky cocktails on the menu that we just couldn't resist trying! One was pumpkin and lychee based and the other was grapefruit and rose and they were both good but the black magic was definitely our favorite.  Twisted Pumpkin: absolut elyx, pumpkin spiced liqueur, lychee, liqueur, house

Frontera Cocina at Disney Springs

Frontera Cocina is one of the many restaurants you will find with a celebrity chef at Disney Springs, this one is brought to you by seven-time James Beard award winner, Rick Bayless.  The warm colors and open atmosphere is very welcoming for a contemporary Mexican dining experience.  Reservations are highly suggested and can be made via My Disney Experience or the Open Table app and the restaurant is typically open for lunch and dinner from 11am to 11pm daily.   We had lunch here on a Monday afternoon and the restaurant wasn't too terribly busy at all, which was a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of the weekend. We settled in at a table in the middle of the restaurant and got ready for the meal ahead.  While somehow I missed a photo, we did start our meal with $5 margaritas which is definitely a great deal while on Disney property!  This was a "Margarita Monday" special and we would highly recommend it!  We also opted for some chips and salsa and some queso. Now,
