Gigantic football helmets, megaphones, surfboards and basketballs team up with value prices to score a winning Walt Disney World vacation at Disney's All-Star Sports Resort.

Guests are greeted by bright colors and the whimsy of Coke cups big enough to hold a resort swimming pool, baseball bats a 50-foot-tall man could use on his field of dreams . . . and the lowest-priced Disney room rates: $99 per night in the value season, $119 in the regular season, $129 in the peak season, and $149 in the holiday season.

The 1,920-room family resort sports five themes: football, baseball, basketball, tennis and surfing.

"It's a lot of fun," said Norm Noble, ganeral manager, Disney's All- Star Resorts. "The theming, architecture and landscaping all work together to make this a 'fan'tastic setting."

Miami-based Arquitectonica designed the resort in conjunction with Walt Disney Imagineering on a 246-acre site just east of Disney's Animal Kingdom. Complimentary transportation to all Disney attractions is offered.

Music, landscaping and lighting create sports scenes -- palm trees arranged to look like a basketball team at tip-off, an interior courtyard that resembles a football field, a quiet pool in the shape of a baseball infield and neon and fiber optics highlighting the main icons.

Here's the lineup:

  • Bold colors glisten on 38-foot-tall surfboards complementing the deep aqua tones of Surf's Up. More than 900 colorful fish appear to be swimming along a "wavy" balcony. Two giant "shark fins" encircle a free-form pool surrounded by swaying palms.
  • Pennants of favorite college teams -- from Blue Devils and Tigers to Boilermakers and Gators -- rim the Hoops Hotel roof line. Basketballs five feet in diameter round out the railings.
  • Stadium lights, scoreboards and an outfield fence recall a day at the ballpark at Home Run Hotel.
  • Giant footballs teed for kickoff and larger-than-life football helmets welcome fans to Touchdown!
  • Center Court features stairwells in the shape of tennis cans. Oversized tennis balls decorate the balconies.

Red, white and blue star-shaped seating, caged lighting such as in a basketball gym, and miniature red lockers delight sports fans at Stadium Hall, the resort's main check-in area.

Sports scenes such as surfing and football decorate the walls in the End Zone food court. Giant sports figures sit atop brightly colored green, blue and red dining booths. A selection of food is offered -- from pizza, pasta and roasted chicken, to barbecue and salads.

The name of the game is athletics in the guest rooms, which feature sports-themed bedspreads, megaphone light fixtures and artwork depicting sports scenes. Standard guest rooms sleep four. Non-smoking rooms, connecting rooms and disabled-accessible rooms are available.

Other guest areas include Team Spirits pool bar, Sport Goofy Gifts & Sundries, Game Point Arcade and coin-operated washers and dryers.

Disney's All-Star Music Resort, sister property to Disney's All-Star Sports Resort, includes five themes -- calypso, country, rock, jazz and Broadway. And recently opened Disney's All-Star Movies Resort features five themes based on Disney movies: "101 Dalmatians," "The Love Bug," "Toy Story," "Fantasia" and "The Mighty Ducks."
