Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort is 1 of 5 Value Resorts located on Walt Disney World property. It also has 2 sister hotels located nearby: Disney’s All-Star Music Resort and Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort.

Being a Value Resort, All-Star Movies is cheaper per night and doesn’t offer the same amenities as Moderate and Deluxe Resorts. But, it is still a popular resort, especially due to pricing.

Pros and Cons

All-Star Movies is in the Animal Kingdom Resort Area. For a Value Resort, it’s quite big and has different buildings with either Standard Rooms or Preferred Rooms.

The latter are priced higher due to Preferred Rooms being located closer to both transportation and dining.

If you want to be in closer proximity to both the food court and to hop on a bus and also don’t mind paying more, then you may want to consider booking a Preferred Room.

The buildings are also themed to different Disney movies, including 101 Dalmatians, Fantasia, Mighty Ducks, Love Bug, and Toy Story. The decor is over-the-top and larger-than-life and make for great photo ops.

Guest Rooms and Bathrooms

There are 2 types of rooms to book at All-Star Movies. You can either make reservations for a Standard Room or a Preferred Room. The rooms can sleep up to 4 adults, total.

They are both similar in style, but the difference is, as mentioned above, Preferred Rooms cost more and are located closer to the food court and transportation.
