Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort Review
This trip was the second time that I’ve stayed at Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort, and even though it’s been 8 years since my last visit, the resort has kept its magical atmosphere!
The magic that you find at the Disney World Resorts is the main reason I will only stay on property….
We booked our May 2017 trip on Wednesday 5/3…very last minute…and arrived the following Sunday 5/7.
Staying on property you normally receive Magic Bands, and your resort package, in the mail. This is only if your final booking is 30 days prior your arrival date.
If your arrival date is within 30 days of your arrival, like ours was, you will pick up your package and magic bands at the front desk.
Online Check-In, through the My Disney Experience App, is still available…regardless of how early, or late, you book your trip.
You can also choose to receive a text or email when your room is ready. If you have your Magic Bands you can go straight to your room and use your magical magic bands to enter your room.

Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort Info:
All-Star Movies Resort has two rooms to choose from: Standard or Preferred.
While on the inside the rooms are the same, the difference is location.
The standard rooms are typically located toward the back of the resort…a little further from the lobby and restaurant area. The preferred rooms are typically located near the main pool(i.e. the Fantasia Pool).
Our room was located in the Mighty Ducks section, which is a little further from the main pool, but it’s not a far walk no matter where you stay on property.
The inside of the rooms are dusted with Disney Magic!! From the border around the top of the room, to the shower curtain in the bathroom, there are little sprinkles of Disney everywhere…..even on your table!!
We always Decorate our Resort Window when we stay on Disney property…to see how the window at this resort turned out Click Here!!
Flat-screen TV with Disney Info Channels that tell park hours, temperatures, and any other info you may need to know during your visit.
