We previously shared the exciting news that Disney’s All Star Music Resort has officially reopened as of September 16, 2021. Cast Members are thrilled to be back and we too are happy to have another Value Resort option available! All Star Music is the second reopening of All-Star Resorts, as All Star Movies has been open for some time amidst the COVID pandemic. While Disney previously announced all Walt Disney World Resorts would be open before the end of 2021, it looks like there is a slight change in plans with a new announcement that the reopening for Disney’s All Star Sport Resort has been put on hold.

Previously, All Star Sports Resort had a scheduled date posted by Disney to reopen on December 9, 2021. Unfortunately, this date has been removed from the Walt Disney World website. While this Walt Disney World Resort reopening may be on hold, Disney does still have Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside Resort noted as scheduled to reopen on October 14, 2021, with Disney’s Port Orleans Frech Quarter Resort scheduled to reopen on October 28, 2021. All-Star Sports definitely won’t be reopening on December 9, 2021, and we’re unsure if it will reopen before the end of the year.

Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort

As reported by InsideTheMagic: Per an official announcement from Disney about the Disney Resort Hotel: “We’re excited to continue welcoming Guests back to our Disney Resort hotels, such as at Disney’s All-Star Resorts, where we recently reopened the Music and Movies themes. At this time, Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort will remain closed while we take the opportunity to refresh the Sports theme area, and we look forward to sharing a new reopening date for rooms in the Sports theme at a later time. Guests with upcoming reservations will receive communication via email and will be instructed to reach out to their Travel Professional to modify their stay, at no additional charge. This modification will have no impact to other vacation experiences that may be booked, such as Theme Park reservations or dining. As a reminder, we’re excited to reopen Disney’s Port Orleans Resorts next month for our Guests, with bookings available beginning Oct. 14 for Riverside and Oct. 28 for French Quarter, subject to availability.

We’ll keep you posted as we learn more from Disney on when the reopening of Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort may take place. In the meantime, be on the lookout for Disney Value Resort stays at Disney’s All-Star Music and Disney’s All-Star Movies Resorts. Plus, two other Value Resorts, including Disney’s Art of Animation and Disney’s Pop Century Resort are currently open. Our hope is that Disney is able to complete the refreshing of the All-Star Sports soon enough so Disney fans will once again be able to enjoy this favorite area of Disney’s All Star Resort!
