Oversized replicas of cowboy boots, guitars and saxophones decorate the music-themed exterior of Disney's All-Star Music Resort. Designed with Disney's signature knack for themed attractions, hotel sections include the Calypso, Jazz Inn, Rock Inn, Country Fair and Broadway Hotel. The All-Star Music Resort, Orlando, opened in 1994 as one of several value-priced resorts, and accommodations range from standard and preferred rooms to ample family suites. True to the music theme, guests can take a dip in guitar-shaped and piano-shaped pools, enjoy water-squirting features, and sing along to songs from Disney classics at poolside movie nights.

Much Better Than Expected!

Even though this was the cheapest possible option for us to stay INSIDE Disneyworld, it turned out really great and much better than expected. The only really negative thing I can say is that our particular room has a sort of "musty" smell. My husband didn't notice it, but I did. The location of our room was great--it was very quiet in the "Country Fair" section, as it was in the back of the hotel resort. We had a small walk to the shuttle busses, but it only felt long because we were tired after long days in Disney. The pools were EXCELLENT and the cleanest I've ever seen! Beds were comfortable. It was so nice to have a fridge, but you'll need to bring your own coffee pot if you want coffee in your room. We LOVED the musical theme throughout.. We were quite pleased with our whole experience!

Value, but with a price

Good value, good location (on Disney), but with a definite price. The rooms are showing there age: chipped paint, torn fabric on chairs, some signs of rust, i.e. aged rooms. The beds were newer as was the TV. Overall the rooms was comfy and provided the needed shelter for the few hours you are not in the parks. The staff, like most of Disney, was polite and helpful and help overcome the deficiencies of the room.

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

PUSH for a room near the front of the hotel. The rooms at back of the resort are a 15min walk from the buses and all transportation. It doesn't seem like much but it matters when you have to include a bus wait and bus transport time.

okay

When booking this trip I wish that I would have known that the food court was being redone, couldn't buy any hot meals here so we were forced to eat every time that we were out. Website said that check-in was at 3pm, I've always gotten right into my room when staying on disney property, even when arriving as early as 11 am, but this time I was told that the room would be ready anywhere between 3pm-5pm, so I left my phone number and was told that I would receive a text when the room was ready. Left our bags with the bellhop and went to the theme parks. It was a really hot day and we were tired from the flight and just wanted to go lay down in the room, it was 330 pm and still never received a text that the room was ready. Went back to the hotel to find out that the room was ready the whole time, so I don't know why I wasn't able to get in. None of the people that I dealt with were helpful and I probably wouldn't stay here again, even for $98/night.

Bumps along the way, but overall ok

Things started off a bit rocky when the Magical Express driver got "turned around a little bit" and it took us about 20 minutes longer than it should have to arrive at All Star Music. Then we checked in and found the air conditioning unit was not working. (called maintenance, went to the parks and thankfully it was fixed by the time we got back). Found that one of our towels had a hole in it, but hey there were plenty of towels so no big deal. Second day in, the drain in the tub decided to slow down, and late that night, when the people in the room next to ours took a shower, the drainage from their shower backed up into our tub! EWWW! Called maintenance in the morning, told them we were leaving to go to a park and, once again, by the time we came back from the park, the problem was fixed. (Thank heavens, because it was beastly hot and we needed showers asap!) The room was cleaned and towels changed out each day, all was fine with cleaning service. The food court is undergoing renovations so there was no hot food there so that was a bit inconvenient. There was a shuttle bus to take you to All Star Movies or All Star Sports (or you could walk) for hot meals. Also there was a food truck that pulled up with a few hot items - husband tried the breakfast croissant which was just ok. Gaston, the bartender at the pool bar, was the highlight of the resort. Said he's planning on 20 more years full-time and then will go part-time. We were in the Broadway section which is a bit of a walk from the front of the resort, but we actually prefer to be away from the crowds and noise of the pool so that was fine.

Best breakfast we had was at Pizzafari in Animal Kingdom - the breakfast burrito was terrific. The kids breakfast platter there is also great - eggs, breakfast potato, turkey sausage, small cup of oatmeal, and juice...

Music at Broadway

This review will probably bring up similar issues that other guests had during their stays at Disney's All-Star Music Resort. It was a large compound requiring long walks to the lobby/food areas/bus stops. There were areas that were not well lit during nighttime that caused some (albeit slight) uneasiness. The grounds did not appear to be well secured or monitored. However, all that being said, it is a self-described "value" resort but went beyond what that title brings to mind when heard/read. The housekeeping staff was excellent and maintained the room everyday. It was a welcome feeling after a long day in the parks to come into a room that felt like it hadn't been lived in for days. The concierge desk was helpful although in need of some further training, but, again, it was nice to have in a hotel at that price. I did not take advantage of the pool, but it was well maintained and always actively supervised by one or two lifeguards. The lack of an onsite food court made it difficult to enjoy a meal at the hotel due to lack of food options and/or seating, but the nearby resorts were available via bus or walking. However, this process should have been better communicated at check-in. The other bus issue was at check-out for the Magic Express. I never received an assigned time for departure, and I do not know if I would have received one had I not asked. The other downside was lack of indoor lobby seating. With the amount of rain received during the week, it would have been nice to have a comfortable place to sit inside while waiting for the bus as I was now scheduled to depart after hotel check-out time. It is not as nice as the "moderate" Port Orleans Riverside, but certainly on par with the higher priced Coronado & Caribbean resorts. I enjoyed my stay despite the extended morning and evening walks to and from the bus stop, and would suggest it for anyone spending their days in the parks and only needing a room to retire to in the evening.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Stay in the Calypso building to the south, but on the outer side. You will then have a short walk to the bus stop, and being on the outside keeps you away from the pool noise.

Disney Stay

Hotel was convenient because of the bus, but the hotel I had offsite for 30 was nearly as good. Very pricey for what it is...essentially a roadside motel on property. Will save you on the driving back and forth to the park if that's not something you want to do.
