      Positive aspects of the product (pros): clean, affordable
      Cons: small rooms,

      We stayed Jan 30 since we were able to arrive a day early for our trip. We figured if we were going to arrive later in the evening and needed a hotel why not on property especially for the price. We paid $95 incl tax.we arrived around 9 pm. Check in was very fast. Our room was in mighty ducks, first floor. It was smaller than a moderate and we felt it was fine for the night for the three of us, 2adults and a soon to be 13 yr. Old. I wouldn't want to stay if our family was larger or for a longer time as souvenirs ECT keep getting added. It was clean and cute. The film theme was nice. The food court looked decent but we didn't eat there just grabbed some forks. The gift shop is a downer. I found it to lack selection compared to other shops in Disney hotels. Checkout was quick and efficient. The pools were closed during the time frame we were there. Mighty duck pool was only open 12-8. Fantasia I am not sure. We have done a late arrival stay at pop before and we liked this one much better as far as cleanliness and checkin checkout and how quiet it was for the amount of children. We would do tho again if we needed to.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Great value, great staff, great service
      Cons: rooms small for more than one person, in need of decor and furnishings updates

      This is a good solid product. Rooms were small but efficient and functional and contained everything I needed from double beds to a mini fridge and even an iron and ironing board. The theming is really cute and screams Disney so kids and kids at heart like me love it. This doesn't have all the luxuries and it is a basic room but it does provide a clean nice safe place to sleep and shower. Since I don't spend much time at the resort I don't mind that it isn't fancy and basics are all I need. The air conditioners work on motion sensors and will shut down during the day and at night while you are asleep and motionless. To prevent that get a balloon from the front desk to fool the sensor and the a/c will keep cooling. I discovered this after waking up hot and finding my air conditioning blowing warm air but a call to the front desk and a service call from maintenance a few minutes later fixed this and I was much more comfortable. All the staff that I encountered here from check in to check out and the maintenance crew, the housekeepers, the transportation and luggage services were all friendly and helpful and it was a very pleasant experience all around. There is reliable bus service with a times board with the bus arrival times posted for each destination at the bus stop outside. I only had breakfast at the food court but they had several stations with different offerings although it was pricey. The adult meals were around $11-12 per entrée and the bottled water was $3 so one fast food meal for one adult prices out at around $15. For fast food. That is pretty typical all over WDW though. I only dined here for breakfast but I was able to order kids meals for half the cost and still had plenty to eat and they came with a small water and fruit that the adult meals did not. I loved my week long stay and I would not hesitate to stay again. I was in the Love Bug section which looks far on a map but in reality was a short walk to the main building and bus stops. This resort isn't just for families but it was great for a solo traveler like myself and I enjoyed my stay. The buses do sometimes share with the other two All Star resorts but I did not have any complaints about the extra stops as they were on the way back from the park not going to it and they were short stops and it only took a few minutes for it to get through all three resorts the few times they did share a bus. During peak times they did not share and each resort had it's own bus. The time from departing the resort to the stop at the Magic Kingdom was 12 minutes even in heavy traffic as the buses had their own dedicated lanes for travel while cars would be backed up trying to get through the gates. This was a nice resort at a good price. It's not fancy but it's a great value for what you get and being in the Disney magical bubble.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Cheap
      Cons: Dirty, Needed repairs

      I have often stayed at Disney Value Resorts when I go to Disney World, but this time I was placed in the Country Fair building and I found I was disappointed by the quality of the room--it was clearly very old and due for a facelift. There was paint peeling from the walls, the carpet was worn bare, the sink had permanent brown stains, everything was badly dated, the mattress had clearly outlived its lifespan, the safe was not nearly deep enough to store anything of value except jewelry (I made my iPad fit, barely), and then on my second day, the RF Mickey on the front door fell off without my even touching it as I was leaving in the morning. While I understand that I booked a value resort, I have never seen a Disney hotel room that looked this bad. I say this having stayed at all of the All Star resorts, Pop Century, and the Art of Animation before. I found myself purposely avoiding my room. Of course I appreciate all the perks that staying on property afforded me, I simply was unhappy with this room. I suspect the Country Fair building is little used and therefore little cared for.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): inexpensive
      Cons: Beds were horrible.

      I would suggest getting a preferred room, putting you closer to the food court and bust stops. The food in the food court was your average Disney offerings, but a large selection. Budget hotels have the smallest rooms, but adequate.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Easy to Navigate, Clean
      Cons: Parking Lot

      We stayed here for a quick getaway, only two nights. We did book a preferred room and ended up in the Toy Story buildings. We were close to the main lobby and transportation. The parking lot near our buildings seemed a bit too small as the larger vehicles were taking up two spots and limiting space for others. Other than that, it was exactly what we expected for what we paid. We were able to go straight to our room rather than going to the front desk for anything. Our magic bands worked the first time around! The room was clean. Nothing to really complain about since this is a value resort.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Clean, quiet, price
      Cons: Lack of counter space, bedding

      We stayed in the Toy Story section 11/30-12/4. My daughter is a huge Toy Story fan, so the theming was perfect. We were on the third floor which was very quiet. The rooms were clean when we arrived and mousekeeping was good throughout the week. The walk to Cinema Hall was decent, and the food in the food court was good. But then again it's hard to mess up a Mickey waffle Smile

      I wish the vanity area in the bathroom was a little larger. It was difficult having everyone's stuff out when getting ready, but was doable. The biggest con for me was the bedding...or lack of. It was basically a sheet and thin blanket. With the rest of my family being hot natured, I stayed pretty cold at night.

      For the price and theming, I would definitely stay here again, especially with kids. I would just bring thick pajamas or an extra blanket Smile

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Price
      Cons: Buses

      My hubby and I stayed here Friday, October 9 through Monday, October 12 in a preferred room in the Toy Story section on the third floor. It is a very quiet section and we heard no walking noise. The elevators were very efficient and we never had a problem getting one.
      The room had two double beds, not queen, and was pretty small but okay for just the two of us. There is not a lot of dresser storage. The bathroom area has only one sink, and is separate from the shower and toilet. It would be very cramped getting ready with more than two adults.
      The closet is an open space next to the sink. There is a privacy curtain that separated the sink area from the rest of the room. The room itself was fine since we were just there to sleep. It was pretty clean.
      We never ate at the food court, but it had offerings of burgers, chicken strips, fries, build your own salad, dessert bar, standard food court from what I could see. Also includes a mini-market.
      The bus stop is right in front of the hotel and we did have to wait many times for buses. More than 20 minutes. Movies is the last stop of the All-Star hotels and the buses are sometimes full when they arrive. Not terrible, just sporadic.
      I might stay here again just because of the cost.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): fun for the family
      Cons: long way from parking lot

      Just came back from a 2 night stay at the Movies. We had 4 rooms , 2 rooms were connecting. They were ready when we checked in at 11:00. Check in was easy and the gentleman was very kind. The room was clean and everything worked in my room. They was 11 of us and our rooms were next to one another. Had requested 1st floor, which we got. Enjoyed the food court and the prices weren't bad.

      Went to the gift shop. Cast members were helpful. Was able to use my Disney Visa discount.
      Was shopping for my 18 year old grandson. Had no idea what to get him. A cast member came up with an idea and it was perfect. My grandson was thrill with it.

      I really enjoyed the resort. Thanks cast members for a job well done.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Fun theming, very quiet
      Cons: Room needed a deep cleaning

      Stayed here for two nights over a weekend in November. Booked it because it was the only Disney resort available in our price range. Had to get a preferred room because no standard rooms were left. Our preferred room was in the Dalmatians building 4, but was at the back near the parking lot. I would've expected a preferred room to at least be in the front closer to the main building. The room was very, very quiet. The beds, sink, toilet and shower were all clean but in general the room really needed a thorough deep cleaning. Lots of dust and gunk built up in all the corners. I expect more attention to that from Disney, even in a value resort. Probably wouldn't stay here again, for a value resort I would go with Pop Century instead.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Mousekeeping, quiet
      Cons: Long walk to anything, no coffee maker

      We stayed here for a quick (cheap) weekend getaway. Was fine for what we paid.
      I always make my own morning coffee and tea when at WDW and was disappointed to find that rooms no longer come with a coffeemaker. Mousekeeping was kind of rude when we called to see if we could request one and was told "You can buy cups of coffee in the food court."
      Anyway, room was very clean. Mighty Ducks section was very quiet but far away from anything. We actually walked to AS Music bus stop as it was closer to our room.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Cute theming, plenty to do

      My family of 4 stayed here last year on our very first trip to Walt Disney World. The theming was cute, the kids (ages 3&5 at the time) really liked the giant toy story characters. We were in the mighty ducks building which was kind of disappointing since the girls had no idea what it was. However our room was clean, staff was friendly, the pools were great, and they loved the activities by the main pool held every evening. The food court got a little boring by the end of our 8 day stay, but the food itself was decent. We will be returning to disney next year with two more children in tow, and plan to try out a moderate resort this time, however we would definitely stay here again.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): price
      Cons: teenagers

      Stayed May 16-24. Had preferred room
      Dalmations Bldg. Upon checkin (which was done online prior) was escorted to guest services and had hard time speaking with castmember who spoke very bad English. Had requested connecting rooms on ground floor. This was our third stay and the first two was a wonderful experience. Not so much this time. It took the cast member over 30 minutes to try to get us assigned a room. Somehow, my sons connecting room was giving them a hard time. I had the room numbers from 2013 trip and I know that Disney can never guarantee our requests but I have to admit I'm spoiled by the fact that I had gotten them previously. Not this time. We ended up on the third floor at the end of the building. Not what I wanted but wanted to start my vacation and since the room was ready we decided to give it a try. We had rented a stroller for my dd5 and it was waiting upon our arrival. The room was clean and we had towel animals several times during our stay. We had an issue with magic bands not working to get into our room but this was quickly corrected. Even though I would prefer to stay on ground level, it wasn't that bad. during this trip we were able to visit other resorts and will definitely try them next time. My biggest complaint was that the week we were there. I think every teenager in
      Florida was also there and was rude, loud, and creating inappropriate behavior. I will pay more next time to avoid this. the buses were good except when you had to compete with again teenagers who wouldn't give up their seats for the elderly or moms carrying infants.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Concierge staff
      Cons: Run-down

      Stayed here with my daughter for the Cheerleading Worlds. I have stayed in a value resort at least once a year for the past 5 years due to competitions and I find that they are all getting rundown. In this particular stay, we had trouble with our outlets being too loose. Our chargers kept getting deactivated and the blowdryer wouldn't work. We actually had a couple of towels with holes in them.

      I had to go to the concierge desk a couple of times and they were very helpful and friendly.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Clean, bus service, good food choices
      Cons: Expensive for 1 night

      The services of this hotel were good the one night we stayed 3-22. Price was high for one night. Stayed off property in a suite for 2 nights $50 less than one night here. Would stay during another season for cheaper rates.
