“Awesome Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

After reading a few negative reviews about this place I was a little worried that my holiday was in jeopardy but having stayed here I can confirm that All-Star Music Resort is a great place for everyone who doesn't spend a lot of time on resort and doesn't want to spend a small fortune elsewhere.

*My room was large enough for 4 adults, had a decent TV and was thoroughly cleaned each day.

*The food, whilst basic, was good all round comfort food although I will admit, at times, the food court got a little chaotic at peak times, i wouldn't like to imagine what it's like during summer months

*Transportation services were generally quite good with the odd exception of waiting 30 minutes for a bus and then having 2 or 3 turn up simultaneously.

*The service at the front desk was always impeccable, if i ever had a query, they would always help in a professional manner.

The pool and grounds were always being looked after (it may be the time of year where they do a lot of maintainence)

The whole experience was a pleasure and as I have already said, if you want a budget hotel then this is the place to come. If on the other hand, you are looking for something upmarket, DO NOT STAY HERE!!

If anything spoilt the holiday for me, it was two things;

*American's who had stupidly high expectations from a VALUE resort - the key is in the name, and felt as though it was their right to be rude to staff and other guests if something was not going their way eg. not waiting in line and then being told to go to the back.

*People on mobility scooters. Yes, some people genuinely need them, but I would say, a good 70% of people using them across the entire estate, did not and just could't be bothered to walk or wanted special priveleges. NEWSFLASH, stop being so lazy, you just clog things up for everyone else. I sincerely apologise to anyone who does have a genuine need for one, this is not a dig at you.

Great holiday otherwise

We spent six nights in a family suite at the All-Start Music Resort. For the price that I paid, the hotel and the shuttles to the parks were fine. The family suite was well laid out and had plenty of room for the four adults and infant. The second bathroom was ideal. The room that we were in was in a great location for the pool (even though it was too cool to use) and the dining area. If you don't have a dining plan, the food costs are outragous, so be prepared. The bed in the room was comfortable, the kitchenette was great, the maid service was reliable, and the shower was warm. For the amount of time we spent in the room, it was satisfactory. However, the travel time to most of the parks is a little longer then some of the other resorts, and the outside of the buildings definitely remind me of the early 1990s. It's probably time for an update. All in all, the stay was fine, but I will probably try a different resort next time as this one was nothing special.

My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend, and enjoyed everything about our experience. Our room was clean, well organized and sufficient. We used the refrigerator and enjoyed the flat screen tv with a channel guide that was easy to understand and many choices. We did enjoy our meals on the property, purchased the free refill cups, and found the food to be fresh and delicious. Traveling to the parks that we chose to visit via bus from the resort is a bonus, and hopping between the parks is so much fun. Florida resident rates are affordable and an excellent value. WE recommend this resort for value. WE will return.

Room Tip: Check in ahead of time online. Easy!!!

Although the rooms are small the value is large. Transportation to the parks is quick and effortless. The staff is friendly and courteous. Rooms are small but clean and bright. The food court is resonable, clean and pretty good for fast food.

You would think that since it's Disney it would be good. WRONG! It was raggedy, the room smelled weird, the lights over the sink were burned out and I had to call TWICE to get them replaced, the blow dryer had a short in it so it would spark when you tried to turn it on. The only way to use it was to hold the ON button pressed in really hard and it smelled liked electrical burning. There were unidentifiable things under the bed that I dare not touch (and one thing that is not appropriate to share but let's just say someone had a REALLY good time in there), even the bathroom exhaust fan was held on by a BOBBY PIN! If this were a Red Roof Inn in Tampa near Bush Gardens, I'd expect that. But this is DISNEY - it was such a ripoff for the BIG dollars I paid to stay on property! I'm an annual pass holder and I was just heartbroken by how crappy this place was.

Trying to eat in their restaurant was like hogs at feeding time. It was chaos with a bazillion people trying to get their 'free' drinks, not enough seating inside or out, just a herd of people running all over like they had never seen food before. There was NO organization to get the food (like in the parks) IF you could get a table and chairs you better bring a hazmat suit to sit. Disgusting. I lost my appetite whenever we were in there. Not to mention nearly being trampled to death every time we went near it, and you HAD to go by it to get to the buses.

Save your money, get another hotel with shuttles to the parks, take a picnic lunch and skip the dining plan too. It was my first and ONLY time I stayed on a Disney property. All talk, nothing to back it up. If I could get my money back - I would. Just sick I wasted over $600 for two nights for three people. It was supposed to be a happy occasion, and they ruined it.

My husband and I and our 17-year old daughter spent 5 nights at All-Star Music in November 2012. Hotel is basic but location is good, service is good and resort clean as one can expect from Disney. Biggest surprise for us was the wide variety of gluten-free food available at the
restaurant in Melody Hall. Biggest plus for us is same for all Disney resorts, Disney's Magical Express, and all of the Disney transportation which makes things so simple.
