Breaking News: Disney’s All-Star Sports Reopening Date!

There’s good news for fans of Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort. An official opening date has finally been announced! Disney Parks posted the following on Twitter:

Play ball! Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort will reopen to guests March 31, 2022. Guests can begin booking their stays starting Dec. 22. If you’re keeping score at home, that means all Walt Disney World Resort hotels will be operating by the spring for the first time since 2020!

There was a time when it was expected that all of the Walt Disney World Resort hotels would be open by the end of 2021, but that obviously isn’t going to happen. When Guests are welcomed once again at All-Star Sports, it will have been closed for over two years.

Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort is a favorite of many. Since it is a Value Resort, it is considered one of the more affordable options for staying on Walt Disney World property.

There are five different sports that are featured at Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort. They are baseball, basketball, football, surfing, and tennis. There are giant structures that represent each sport, and you’ll find character depictions of each activity across the Resort.

The main pool at Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort is the Surf Bay Pool. The Grand Slam Pool is a smaller option if you want to spend some time in the water.

Like all of the Value Resorts, the main dining option is a food court. At All-Star Sports, it’s called End Zone Food Court, and before the closure all three meals were served. Grandstand Spirits Pool Bar serves beverages by the Surf Bay Pool.

Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort is one of three All-Star options. The other two are All-Star Music and All-Star Movies. These are both already open.

Remember, if you’re staying on property there are increased safety precautions. Services such as daily housekeeping could be temporarily suspended.

About Paula K

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
