Disney's All-Star Music Resort
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
This was my third visit to All-Star Music Resort. The past two visits were to participate in the Disney 10K Princess Run in February. This week's visit was a fun weekend with friends. The rooms were adequate; however, I was extremely disappointed there were no coffee makers in the room. In order to get a cup of coffee, you had to walk (what seemed like a mile) to the food court and then had to pay for it.Most hotels offer complimentary coffee. In addition, I do not recommend this resort during the summer. Not only are the crowds tremendous, but you wait in line for buses to take you to the parks for nearly an hour...They say every 20 minutes; however, that was not what happened on May 22, 2017. There is no covered area to stand as you wait for the bus. In 90 degree heat, this was unbearable. In addition, a young girl collapsed from heat exhaustion when she finally got on the bus. Most of the resorts offer much more; however, the cost is astronomical. If you don't want your morning coffee or the sun, heat, and crowds don't bother you as you wait for a bus, this is the place for you. I will probably return, but it will be in the fall with my own coffee maker!
I want to begin by saying that I travel for work. Therefore, I stay in plenty of hotels and I've seen very good ones and some not so good. I can usually tolerate a few issues with my stay. The Disney all star music resort was absolutely horrible. We only stayed 1 night and if we were going to stay any longer, we would have checked out. For starters, the I couldn't open the door with my magic band, only my fiancé could. That would make sense if her name was on the reservation but only mine was. When we got into the room it was in a serious need of an upgrade. Everything was at least 15 years old and the beds were extremely small and didn't look clean.Separating the bedroom and the bathroom area was a curtain. Yes, a curtain. The light in the bathroom made noises and flickered the entire time (I thought I was in the twilight zone). I expected much better at a Disney hotel but I was unfortunately disappointed.
For my second trip to Walt Disney World my partner and I decided to budget our trip which is why we choose the All Star Resorts. There are three All Star resorts, all with different themes. Due to the price, we choose the All Star Music Resort and we were located in the jazz section, and we stayed here for two weeks.Check in was quick and easy where they provide you with a map of the hotel to show you where your room is, there are five sections to this property with Calypso being closest to the reception, dining hall and disney buses.The jazz section is the second closest, and we were located on the ground floor of building two. Prior to our arrival we mentioned we were celebrating our anniversary so when we arrived into our room there was a small card from the hotel manager and a gift from the resort. It was a photograph fridge magnet, which was a lovely touch. Disney do similar things if anyone in your party are celebrating a birthday etc. If you're wanting to do your own celebration/gift check out Disney floral and gifts which deliver straight to your hotel room. The room was large, and had plenty of space for luggage and all our clothes. There was a mini fridge which allowed us to stock up our snacks/drinks for when we were in the room. Other amenities included a safe, ironing board & iron, and a few Disney shampoos/body wash. The bathroom is separated by a curtain from the bedroom, and the toilet/shower is divided by a door from the sink. This allowed us some privacy and space in the morning to get ready. Each room is only accessible by your magic band. One evening upon returning to our room we found the sensor pad to be damaged. We reported it to reception and 10 minutes later someone was there to repair it. Rooms were cleaned daily, with towels refreshed and sometimes folded like mickey ears on the bed!The facilities at this hotel are similar to any other value resort. The games room has a selection of arcade games and old favourites such as ski ball and air hockey. There is a gift shop onsite which sells a selection of first aid items, snacks and drinks as well as Disney World souvenirs and some exclusive hotel themed merchandise. This is also where you pick up your merchandise you bought in the parks. The main pool area is shaped like a large guitar with a smaller children's pool at the top. There is plenty of seating around with umbrellas and a laundry room next to it. If this one becomes too busy there is another pool shaped like a piano next to the Broadway, Country and Rock areas. The Intermission Food Court serves a wide selection of grab and go items and classics such as mickey waffles! I highly recommend trying one of their freshly made smoothies. Most mornings we used our snack credits for pastries for breakfast. The transportation to the parks is shared between the All Star Properties, which can mean it takes slightly longer to get to or from the parks. This was never an issue for us during our stay as the All Star Music is the 2nd pick up/drop off point. The buses are very frequent 10-15 minutes and the times are displayed outside in the shaded waiting areas. The cast members at the hotel were efficient and provided a friendly service through out our stay. While we were at the hotel we needed something delivered from online, which we needed next day delivery. Due to the size of the hotel we didn't receive it till the 2nd day after ordering it however the staff kept us up to date and advised when it should be with us. Overall I would highly recommend this property for a stay at Walt Disney World, you receive the same level of magic as you would at any other hotel but it makes it an affordable trip which the whole family can enjoy.
We stayed at Disney Allstars Music for our family vacation. Upon entry into the resort you have to go through a security guard. It was nice knowing that only guest should be able to get around the hotel. We checked in with no problems. We even got our Disney pins because it was our first visit. We tried to get as close to our other party, but they couldn't accomodate us. My only complaint was the way the rooms are you are in different buildings. If you are in the last building like we were it is a long walk to the dining area to get food and drinks. Especially if the guests you are with are elderly or have problems walking. The pool was nice. One in the front and a pool in the back so you don't have to walk. They also had complimentary life jackets for the kids. They even had a game coordinator that played trivia games and other games. The food was good, and they always had food available. They have a game room for the kids and a gift/souvenir shop. The room was decent. We had 2 beds and a tub/shower. There was a safe in the room also. Best part was the had buses that brought you to all of the parks. We had a great time!!
We recently traveled to Walt Disney World for an 8 day vacation. First let me say we have traveled quite a bit and we love Disney! This was our first time staying on property. Upon arrival we found our room. Walking through the courtyard I noticed they had Moana playing near the pool which seemed very kid friendly. That part of the resort was nice. Upon entering our room I felt my stomach drop. The room was terribly dated. We had ordered our son a welcome gift from Mickey. When he took it off the table there was food and beverage all over the table. Upon further inspection I noted that there was tooth paste still in the sink. The room was poorly cleaned between guests (if at all). My thought was if the table is dirty did they change the sheets? We returned to the lobby where my husband waited to speak with someone at the desk. Meanwhile I took out four year old into the gift shop and to grab a bite after our day of travel. He was prepared to pay to upgrade us to a newer resort. The man behind the desk was very helpful and in Disney fashion did not disappoint. We were transferred to the Wilderness Lodge and was able to head straight to our room. Our bags and everything came over without an issue! Amazing resort! After that our vacation was perfect! I am giving All Star Music a 2 because it needs to be refurbished but Disney customer service was wonderful!
