    All Star Resorts

    I am looking for any good/bad reports on staying at the All Star Movie resort. How is it for a family with 2 children 10 and under?
    Also if anyone went in October, how is the weather and crowds?

    You and your family will love All-Star Movies. Be sure to buy the refillable mugs as soon as you get there. The bus service from the All Stars is excellent, but plan for the time it takes to get to and from the parks. To MK it is about 15-20 minutes; to the others ranges from 10-15. To go to Downtown Disney it takes a good 30-35 minutes.

    Crowds in October should be light. In the MK you will probably find some short waits for the more popular rides and attractions, but with FastPass you can avoid the lines. For the other parks you will probably ride as often as you like during the day. With ISW closed in the MK there will be longer lines for the more child oriented rides. The weather could be rather nice 65-85, or could be hot and humid 75-90. I would not worry about tropical storms or hurricanes. If they come it is usually a day or two at most bad weather.

    Hey Chris - -- -

    The all stars are fun, there is also a playground area if the kids just want to swing or just be kids. Some of the buss drivers even ask trivia questions or tell you bits of trivia on the way. Can you take me in your suitcase with u.

    October is a great time to go. The weather is warm and the crowds are pretty small. We are going at the end of October this year and also staying at the Movie Resort. I have never been there either so this info is really helpful.
    I have a question; we are going to Chef Mickey's an our PS is at 9:20. If we take the bus how much time do we need to allow for transportation?

    I think that when you stay in the resorts...it's a lifesaver!!! My hubby and I always stay in Pop Century and we know kids will be there. That's half the fun is seeing all the kiddos having a great time just like we did when we were kids. The busses as transportation is a wonderful thing!!! We LOVED it because you didn't have to worry about driving or anything. I believe that these resorts are probably a lot more fun for kids anyway!
