Last June we had a quick stay at Disney's All-Star Music Resort. It is considered a value resort and typical rack rates vary (on season) between $100-$180 for a standard room with the preferred and suites being a bit more. As with all Disney Resorts, you can expect to have a clean and well maintained room. Of course, these are Value rooms so you will not get the larger amenities offered by the moderate and deluxe rooms. However, you can expect two full beds and a separate vanity space from the bath and the standard TV, phone, etc. The square footage is a little small, but you mainly want to sleep here, and spend the rest of your time at the parks or poolside, right?

If you are looking for a well-themed and quiet area (remember, a lot of high school bands and families with small children stay here), I recommend staying in the Broadway area of the resort. It is in the back of the resort, but is only a short walk (5 min) to the main pool and Melody Hall, and is next to the parking lot. Also, it is a quick walk to the other All-Star Resorts. Did you know that it only takes about 12-15 minutes to walk between the three All-Star Resorts? Don't hesitate to explore. You only need to cut across the parking lots.

As for recreation and food options, again it is a value resort, so options are limited. Recreation includes the pools, poolside games, the arcade, and a play area for small children. There is no golfing or sitting in a spa here. However, weather permitting there are nightly movies by the guitar pool. Again, food options are limited to counter service and are standard American fare (pizza, burgers, chicken, deli sandwiches, flatbreads, salads, etc). If you want something a little more adventurous or healthier skip eating at the resort and head to one of the parks or Downtown Disney (or is it Disney Springs now?). Also, as with all other Disney resorts, there is a pool-side bar offering libations. One area where the All-Star Resorts do not pale in comparison to the moderate and deluxe resorts is in the gift shop. The gift shop here has a great variety of apparel, toys, collectables, and necessities that you may have forgotten.

While Disney's All-Star Music Resort may not have a club house, golf courses, spas or restaurants it does offer comfortable amenities for the price point. Additionally, if you do experience something less than perfect don't hesitate to talk to a cast member. They are great at fixing any problems that you may have.

Here are a few shots around the resort:
