    Why am I able to make reservations for all Disney World Resorts for the first week of May 2025 except the 3 All Stars Resorts?

    Hiya Joellen!

    Welcome to planDisney! You are correct in that it looks like all of the Disney's All-Star Resorts are booked solid for that first week. I tried playing around with the start date of my imaginary trip and room headcount and found that availability didn't show up for me either! So unusual! 

    I can't confirm this as the dates have not been announced but I will surmise that the rooms were booked for a possible event. My best guess is that it is for The Summit Championship which is a major event for youth cheerleading. This year it is being held May 2- 4 and competitors are being offered as part of their package stays at Disney's All-Star Sports Resort and Disney's All-Star Music Resorts. I think availability will change as you get closer to the date as bookings get finalized. The only Value Resorts left for that week appear to be Disney's Pop Century Resort and Disney's Art of Animation Resort which are delightful! If I had to choose I would select Disney's Pop Century Resort due to my family size and preferences. Disney's Art of Animation Resort is known for their family suites and the only traditional rooms are The Little Mermaid Standard Rooms which are located the furthest from the main building and dining areas. While I love the theming I prefer to be nearer to my morning bacon which means booking a standard room at Disney's Pop Century Resort will give me a better chance of getting that much closer- especially if I book a Preferred room. 

    I hope this helps and that you find your perfect Disney Resort stay! 

    Happy Planning!
