Brief History

Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort is one of 3 All-Star resorts in the Value Category. This resort opened to the public on January 15, 1999. In 2018, the Rooms at All-Star Movies began a transformation, similarly to Pop Century. The refurbishment transformed 2 double bed rooms into two queen beds, with one being a Murphy table. Additionally the carpet was replaced with hard surface floors.

The room decor while becoming more clean and sleek still provide the Disney flair. One great piece here is the Huey, Dewey and Louie headboard in the Murphy bed.
