    Exclamation All Star Movies Needs Remodel

    Considering Art of Animation just opened and seems to be a success, it makes the other value resorts look pale in comparison. I know that it costs a lot more for the Cars, Nemo, and Lion King sections but the Little Mermaid area is just like every other value resort yet it looks to have much more thematic elements, both inside the rooms and outside. People are going to ask why the Toy Story rooms do not have the details of the Little Mermaid rooms. People are going to ask why All Star Movies looks so pale in comparison to AoA. I think they need to remove the Herbie and Mighty Ducks sections and replace them with something more relevant such as Pirates of the Caribbean with a new pool or Monsters, Inc. or something. When they remodel these sections, they should be equal in execution to the Little Mermaid section. Then the rooms in the remaining three sections need to be made more up to date and reflect the theme with additional elements in the courtyards.

    Re: All Star Movies Needs Remodel

    I stayed in the All-Star Movies once, in the Mighty Ducks section. Although I was aware of the movie, it simply seemed sports themed to me. So I could see some re-theming there. However, since they have the Art of Animation hotel, perhaps they could move away from animated, or even Disney movies, and turn toward more iconic movies from different studios. (I know there would be contractual deals that needed to be worked out and stuff.) Perhaps a Wizard of Oz section, a Star Wars section, Gone With the Wind, and so on. Really make you feel like you're in the movies. It could also have a bit of a more adult feel to it. Really differentiate it. They could make the insides of the rooms fit the theme even more. The Godfather-themed rooms could come with a horse head in the beds....(jk)
    But you get my drift.
    Since the All Star music and sports don't focus only on Disney, I don't think the Movies should have to, either.

    That is actually a very good idea. Clearly Mighty Ducks needs to be remodeled as well as Herbie probably. However, as much as I would love to see other sections, I do not think Disney would replace the Toy Story and Fantasia sections given their popularity. I would love a Wizard of Oz themed section though. Imagine the yellow brick road running through it, the emerald city, the forest. Very cool environments. Star Wars could also be interesting.

    Sounds good! A Star Wars area, a Wizard of Oz area, a pirates area, and how about a Marvel area with the Avengers and Spiderman? (Or does Universal have the rights to this Disney property?) I'd also like a spooky area--though Universal could certainly do that better with its history of horror movies.

    Spider-man is still Sony's property.

    Re: All Star Movies Needs Remodel

    Before that I would like to see Sports and Music remodeled.

    I wouldn't mind seeing them all receive an Art of Animation level refurb enhancing their themeing and amenities.
