“Great Value Disney Resort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

The All-Star Music Resort is one of the least expensive Disney Hotels, and is great value for money. The rooms are comfortable, with facilities which include bath/shower, large flat screen TV, fridge, wall safe, free wi-fi, iron and ironing board, etc.

The resort has two large themed pools, which were never very busy when we were there during the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend in January. There are children’s activities every day by the main pool, and showings of Disney movies on a large screen at night.

The large food court in the main “Melody Hall” building offers a wide range of fast, tasty and affordable meal options, and we ate there many times (more often than we usually eat in the restaurants of the higher end Disney hotels when we stay there). The refillable souvenir drinks cups are great value too if you’re staying for more than a few days – buy one at the start of the holiday and then fill it from the food court drinks fountain as often as you like for the whole stay.

As others have mentioned it is a BIG resort, but then so are most of the others on Disney property. If you’re not keen on walking try to get in the Calypso which is nearest the main hall. Next nearest is Jazz Inn, followed by the Rock Inn and Broadway Hotel. The furthest away is Country Fair, but this is also the quietest – so if you’re a light sleeper (or need to go to bed early because you’re getting up at 3am next morning ready for a Disney Marathon) and don’t mind a 5 minute walk to the main hall, this is ideal.

The two other All-Star Resorts (Movies and Sports) are just a short walk away – in fact if you’re staying in Country Fair, then all three main halls and food courts are about the same distance away.

Initially, we were a little concerned about the free Disney Magical Express service from the Airport because our holiday information had told us that our luggage would be taken to the resort separately and that we might not get it until several hours after checking in. After travelling for over 10 hours from our home in the UK we would have preferred our luggage with us so we could unpack, get changed and relax straight away. However as it turned out we had nothing to worry about – not only did our luggage come with us on the same coach, but the trip only took about 40 minutes, which was less time than we’d expected.

All in all we were very happy with the All-Star Music Resort and will almost certainly stay there again.

We stayed here for 10 nights during Spring Break. I requested a quieter room and got the top floor in Country Fair. We had a car but also used Disney transport where it felt more convenient (Magic Kingdom buses take you right to the door). We're a couple in our late 20s and the size of the resort didn't bother us at all, we did a lot more walking in the parks!

The resort was very busy and there were a lot of large school groups. I'm a light sleeper and only had problems one night when a group walked past our window talking loudly at 11pm. I could occasionally hear toilets flushing but suspect this is because the flush is very loud rather than the walls being thin.

The room wasn't huge but there was enough space for 2 adults. The bathroom felt a lot smaller because the door was very close to the toilet when half open. The bed was comfortable but quite noisy - my boyfriend kept stuff on the floor since there was only one bedside table and the springs made a lot of noise when he leaned over. We took 2 pillows each and found that pretty much perfect. The room was clean and housekeeping kept us well stocked with facecloths, soap and shampoo (at one point I think I counted 10 facecloths!).

We probably won't return but only because we prefer a higher standard of accommodation and will go for a moderate or deluxe next time. The rooms are nice enough to sit around eating or watching tv. The staff we encountered were all very helpful and friendly. We're definitely converted to staying on site after this trip! The All Star resorts are perfect for anyone who wants to stay on site at a lower price.

If your just looking for a place to sleep this is fine. A no thrills room. It was clean, pool looked nice but we did not have time to use it. Breakfast was a mad house, you need to wait in line at different stations to get what you want. Took me 25 min just to get thru line. To get coffee you need to buy a re-usable mug $18. I only used it twice as we were only there 1 day. Would of been nice if they had a sit down restaurant. This is a place were schools and sports teams stay so it was very crowded. Bus service to Disney Parks was a great plus.

My stay was decent, the kids enjoyed it but most likely would choose different resort next time. The rooms are small for a family of 4 to move around in but we worked it out. The pool was nice, until I realized that lifeguards do not guard your children. My 7 year old and 11 year old wanted to swim but I was tired so I offered to take them down and sit while they swam. They jumped in and I started connecting my ipad to wi-fi when I looked up and saw my sons arms flailing in the air and trying to scream. I looked around and yelled for someone to help my kid.....then the mom in me ran and jumped in, clothes and all, and scooped up my 7 year and took him to the side. The lifeguard comes over with a smile on his face and asks if everything is ok....in which I tell him it is now when I am in the pool looking like a drowned rat! I took them swimming after this and always went in with them and always had them in my site! Trust was lost. The rest of the stay was fair and never had to worry about getting lost because of the bus transportation provided. The staff for the most part, pool not included, was very helpful. Choose wisely.

To start off, Disney World is still amazing after many years of coming here, and Disney does an incredible job of maintaining and adding to this park and doesn't disappoint. But as far as the All-Star 'resort' (not my classification of this property), the grounds are decent and well maintained, the rooms clean, but the outside look and dining experience were anything but a resort feel.

Pros:
- Very clean room
- Nice pool
- Relatively inexpensive for Disney resort (Paid $99 / night)
- A lot of buses transporting to parks (although can fill up fast - waited 40 minutes one morning)

Cons
- Motel look feel with some over sized props to kind of give a Disney feel (didn't suceed though)
- Cafeteria style dining (not resort dining at all!) Although daughter really liked the Mickey mouse waffles (only ate breakfast)
- High prices for food for what you get.
- Good service at times, but had a poor experience where we were charged $15 for a roll out bed seven times on our bill, although we only stayed there one night. Couldn't do speedy check out and had to spend 30 minutes at front desk resolving this and manager still billed us the $15 (generally not expected considering it was their computer "glitch")

In summary, there are a lot of nicer hotels and resorts in the surrounding area, and we are going to pay a little more to stay at a real resort the next month when we go back.

We booked as part of a Virgin Holidays Deal, trying to keep to a budget (We're students and part time workers) we decided on the cheapest hotel on offer. Our room was in the Jazz section and was a ground floor corner room. Inside, we had 2 double beds, a TV, a table and chairs and a bathroom with a large closet/changing area.

IT was perfect for us! As a young couple, we used one bed for sleeping and the other for storing STUFF on :)

Room was perfectly warm, bedding was great, bathroom was good!

The hotel pool looked nice but we didn't use it.

We loved the disney store on site and used it for both picking up items we bought in the parks to buying throat sweets and headache tablets. It really is good!

The bus services to the parks were excellent too!

Food court was good for a food court but not somewhere to eat often as Disney fare elsewhere is a lot more appetising.

I stayed at All-Star Music for a week during a recent Disney vacation.

You will find a very basic Day's Inn type room, in great condition, beautifully kept. This is not a luxury Disney hotel like many of the others, but is an excellent value-for-money choice. Having said that, there are tolerable downsides you have to expect for such a low rate on-property. The main building has a huge food court, gift shop, arcade, all you would need. (At Disney prices, of course.) Overall, I'm not someone who would spend $400 a night on a deluxe resort room, so I like having the option of the All-Stars, and the few trade-offs are well worth it.

Pros

A good price on an on-property Disney resort
Two pools - one with activities for kids
Very nice theming/decoration/landscaping
Disney Transport - Let Disney do the driving
Magical Express pick-up and drop off at airport

Tolerable Cons

The Disney bus ride to parks is a good 20/30 minutes
Many of the buildings are a good five-minute walk from the main building
Lots and lots of noisy kids at the pools
