    My family just booked a trip to Walt Disney World. We will be staying at the All Star Movies Resort over Thanksgiving 2019. Where are the standard rooms located and when will rebfurisment be completed?

    Hi Jennifer,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thank you for your question. Thanksgiving is a perfect time to visit Walt Disney World Resort because of the great weather and holiday magic in the parks and resorts.

    Refurbishments have begun at Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort, and the renovated rooms look terrific! While I don’t have a refurbishment timeline for the resort, my guess is that it will be done before you arrive, though of course I’m not on the construction crew, so I can’t make any promises. If you would like to request a refurbished room, you can do so by calling Walt Disney World Reservations at (407) 939-1936 and asking to add that request to your reservation. These requests are not guaranteed, but I think it’s worth asking and then wishing for some pixie dust.

    Preferred Rooms at Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort are located in the 101 Dalmatians, Fantasia, and Toy Story buildings closest to Cinema Hall and the Fantasia feature pool. There are some standard rooms in these buildings as well. Most of the Standard Rooms are in the Love Bug and Mighty Ducks buildings, which surround the Preferred area. I stayed at Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort in the furthest building from Cinema Hall, and was not bothered by the walk to Cinema Hall and the bus stop, which took me about ten minutes. There is also a second pool, The Duck Pond Pool, closer to the Standard Rooms. You are welcome to call and request a room in one of the Preferred buildings, but remember there are no guarantees.

    Jennifer, your 2019 Walt Disney World vacation will be here before you know it! Please come back and see us if you have any other questions are you prepare for your Thanksgiving stay.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
