The End Zone Food Court at All Star Sports has just reopened after a lengthy refurbishment — four months, to be exact! We were thrilled to be on the scene for opening day, and are excited to have you join us for a FIRST LOOK!
End Zone Food Court Atmosphere
The first sight to greet you is nicely familiar… the entryway sign remains the same, so as to make the transition from the hallway seamless.
But in no time you start to notice that things have indeed changed, thanks in part to this sleek “Now Serving” marquee immediately to your left at the entrance.
Then things really kick into high gear! Gone are the primary colors and life-size cutouts of football and baseball players. In their place are earthy tones and clean lines.
The changes are most notable in the dining area.
But they extend throughout the Food Court…
… and the Beverage Station.
I have two absolute favorite details. First, I adore the walls designed to look like basketball courts. They perfectly incorporate the new color scheme and feel while integrating the fun-loving theme of the Resort.
Second, they’ve brought Disney characters into the mix! The scenes featuring Goofy, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, and, of course, Mickey are funny and whimsical. Yet, at the same time, they fit wonderfully in the theme.
Even though they match the characters as they appear in more recent Disney shorts, I couldn’t help but think of the early days of Goofy in the “How to…” series. LOVE it!
End Zone Food Court Menu
Well, it IS a whole Food Court with much to share, so we’ll be taking some more time to show you some more details and a review soon :). For now, we’ll focus on a few highlights!
Of course, Food Court faves have made it back to the menu: pizza and pasta, sandwiches, burgers, hot dogs, and chicken nuggets.
But even within this familiar list are some DEFINITE new highlights!
For starters, Create-Your-Own Pasta has come to the End Zone! YES!!
And those beef and chicken burgers have a Create-Your-Own option as well. Check out this list of toppings (and stay tuned for a review of this new option to come)!
By the way, when you saw that “Now Serving” sign, did you think to yourself, “Wait… did I just read the words ‘Gelato Shop‘?!”
OH. YES. YOU. DID!
Clearly, there is an entirely new vibe for guests to enjoy at the End Zone, and it’s exceeded expectations. There is much more to say and share – and we will! – but for now we’re just happy to give the End Zone a big WELCOME BACK! I think they knocked it out of the park (sports pun totally intended 😉 )!
We’re looking forward to future trips… how about you?
