All Stars Bldg/Room recommendations
Thu, 06-07-2007 - 12:18pm
My countdown says 60's getting close! My parents ended up turning down the offer to come along (due to work situation, not their choise! :( So we're definitely keeping our All Stars Music reservation and now my mind is wondering about which room/building would be best to request. I did not place any special request other than nonsmoking -which is now a moot point- when first making my reservations, thinking I could always call back later when I found out more about the resort, etc! Well, that "later" is quickly approaching and I want to know what to ask for so we just might get it!
From what I've heard, the trick is simply choosing between a quiet good night sleep...and a not TOO exhausting walk from the depths of the resort to our Bus Stops each morning and especially each night when we come back! What a dilemma! Do we really have to choose between the two? I've heard stories about rowdy teens at the pools and in the hallways until very late hours...on the other hand DS9 can get cranky when tired and I fear WE'll be the ones causing a disturbance...but from meltdowns half-way to our room if it's just more steps that he can handle after a full park day...Advice???
FWIW, we're getting a standard, not preferred room (not just for budget reasons but I figured those would be more likely away from the main pool and therefore quieter...wasn't thinking of the walk-back-to-bed issue at that time!!)
Thanks in Advance to all you wonderful ladies!

I'm with you on the quiet part. I've got a 9yo, 7yo and 3 1/2yo who NEED their sleep. Even over the summer they go to bed fairly early. They're all early risers, no matter what time they go to bed at night - which can make for really U-G-L-Y days when they're sleep deprived. We're staying at Pop (27 days to go!!). I requested a room high up in the 60s building. I heard that the higher up in the building, the better your chances of quiet.

As for the walk to the bus stop - I guess its 6 of one, half dozen of the other - you know? It would be great not to have to walk too far, but if we do, we do. It's free transportation and convenient in every other respect, so we'll make do.

I can hardly wait!!

We had a nice, quiet room at ASM...yet close enough to everything. It was room 1426 in the Calypso building. It was a family suite - I'm not sure if that is what you've reserved, or if you're staying in a standard room. We were facing a grassy area, not the pool....but the pool was around the corner. I can remember only one morning with a noise problem....a VERY noisy family was headed out super-early somewhere. No troubles at night though.

I hope you get a wonderful room! Enjoy your (quickly approaching) trip -
