Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort is actually my favorite out of the three All-Star Resorts. The room refurbishments have made the rooms much more functional and utilize the space in quite an innovative way. I recently had the opportunity to stay in one of the newly refurbished rooms and loved every minute of it!
The room refurbishment is actually quite an extensive one! The carpet has been replaced by wood flooring. Personally, I love this, especially if traveling with kids! The beds are higher and have enough room for storing your suitcases under them.
Speaking of the beds, the double beds have been replaced. There is now a queen-sized bed and a queen-sized pull-down table bed in these rooms. I can attest that both of them are extremely comfortable. The queen-sized pull-down table bed makes the room feel much larger since you can choose to not have it down during the day.
A functional coffee station has been added to the rooms with a coffee maker as well as a beverage chiller. There is also a wall-mounted TV which is honestly enormous! (Seriously, I think that TV is larger than the one that I own!) Mounting the TV on the wall has opened up space for storage on top of the dresser. There are also both outlets as well as USB charging stations found here as well as throughout the room. This simplifies charging your electronic devices at the end of the day.
The room itself has a more modern design with the fixtures that are being utilized in this refurbishment. From the light fixtures to the sink, the room has a more modern feel. The bathroom area is separated from the living area by a sliding barn door. The Disney touches have not been removed from the room. There is a photo of Micky Mouse, Minnie Mouse and Donald Duck that can be found above the main queen bed. The top of the headboard of the pull-down queen-sized bed has drawings of DuckTales characters Huey, Dewey, and Louie which are just adorable!
The toilet and shower area are separated from the sink area by a pocket door. The pocket door takes up less space than a standard door which utilizes the space beautifully. The shower curtain in the shower has been replaced by a sliding shower door. Shelving has also been added to the sink area which gives guests staying here much more storage space.
While some of the buildings at Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort have been refurbished, others have not. The refurbishment was put on hold in November 2018 and is expected to start back up sometime in 2019. To date, the following buildings are complete with the refurbishment:
- Building 6
- Building 7
- Building 8
- Building 9
- Building 10
Building 6 and 7 are both Love Bug section and are in the Standard Room category. Building 8 is in the Fantasia section while Buildings 9 and 10 are both in the Toy Story section. These buildings are all considered to be in the Preferred category.
