    They changed it. We stayed in Sports in 2014. I really loved the runners at the ends of the beds. These new beds just all look….one neutral. But, I like a lot of Disney color, and I know that in other places design is trending more towards more “grown up” and less bright colors, such as all the disappointing (to me and my kids at least) refurbishments of the McDonalds play places of recent years—making them more appealing to adults, less “little kid.” In these new Disney rooms I do love the appearance of the DuckTales characters though. And I’m glad that I saw in advance that they’d changed the rooms or I would have been very surprised next time I booked an All Star. Thanks!

      Jane, I agree, especially about the runners, which added a lot.

    I’ve stayed at Sports and Pop before and to me this seems very…..sterile. They took away a lot of touches that made the All Stars cute. There used to be a more little pics of Disney characters everywhere. Did it feel that way in person, or were there enough Disney touches to make it fun?

      Hi Jane, I actually disagree with you on this one (but I’m sure we agree on everything else!!) I have a photo tour of e.g. a Sports room here. All that’s in it is a piece of art, wallpaper borders, and the shower curtain.

      I find the images above the fixed bed…

      …and revealed when the hide-a-bed comes down…

      to be in sum much cuter!

    Is the occupancy still the same? (four + infant). Looks way better!

    We stayed in a refurbed room for one night in August. We definitely liked the rooms and are planning on staying there again in March. I do feel as though when both beds are down the room seems noticeably smaller. We had a stroller with us so trying to keep that out of the way and have the chairs from the table stacked and out of the way made things a little tighter. Again, we liked the room and are excited to be going back.

      Hi Stephanie, yeah the new beds take up about 13 more square feet when down than the old beds, which doesn’t sound like a lot but there’s not a lot to start with!
