    What is the difference between Standard and Preferred rooms at the All Star resorts?

    Hello, and welcome to planDisney, Jena!

    During your Disney Resorts Collection Hotel booking, Jena, you will be presented with choices for room category, and this is where the terms standard or preferred come into play, and this includes the Resort Hotels you are inquiring about, Disney's All-Star Music and Disney's All-Star Sports and Disney's All-Star Movies Resorts. The difference between standard and preferred begins with location and the proximity to the main dining, hotel shopping, pool, Guest Services and transportation. The general Guest Room floorplan and list of Guest Room-specific amenities of both categories are similar. Lastly, because preferred rooms are closest to many Resort Hotel-wide amenities, this will reflect in a higher price.

    Jena, for many visiting Guests who drive, Guest Room location is irrelevant because many resorts in the value and moderate category have a layout which includes parking next to many sections, therefore, many Guests, park their vehicles near their section and then many use their vehicles to reach the theme parks, so the quick trip over to the food court for a quick meal is not a big deal in terms of distance. Regardless of your category of Guest Room, as a Guest of a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, you will enjoy unique benefits and conveniences.

    I hope you consider booking a Walt Disney World Resort Vacation Package that will include your accommodations and theme park admission – take a look at the current Walt Disney World Resort – Special Offers, Deals & Discounts which are some of the best!

    Don’t forget to secure your Disney Park Pass – Theme Park Reservations for each day of valid admission, and download the My Disney Experience App to manage your plans.

    If booking a Walt Disney World Resort Vacation Package, you will be presented with the opportunity to pre-purchase your MagicBands or MagicBand+ devices in advance of your arrival – as an International Guest, you will be presented with your MagicBands or MagicBand+ devices upon your arrival at the Front Desk. Utilizing a MagicBand or MagicBand+ device will add great freedom and convenience to your visit as a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel Guest.

    Jena, it was my great pleasure and honour assisting a fellow Canadian Disney fan, please stop by to ask me for more first-hand advice to optimize your visit to Walt Disney World Resort!

    Best Disney Wishes!
