It’s one of our goals to be able to stay at every single one of the Disney resorts in our lifetime and so far we have only done two but I already have a favorite! Here is a breakdown of our honest thoughts of Disney’s All Star Music Resort.
Definitely great, I honestly haven’t had a negative experience with any Disney customer service before though. I know some people have, but luckily not for us yet! We stayed for 8 nights and we opted out of their cleaning services, because it was just the two of us and we received an $80 Disney gift card. It’s $10 for each night that you opt out. Plus they will bring us anything we need(toilet paper, fresh towels, etc.) whenever we call and ask for it.
We also asked to move closer to the main building after the first night and they told us absolutely and made it so simple for us to move. Now I’m not saying this is the norm, just our experience and an example of Disney’s customer service going above and beyond for its’ customers. One of our favorite perks is the Disney’s Magical Express that will come get you from the airport free of charge and take you to your resort as well as take you from your resort back to the airport.
So the room was pretty standard, the first room we were in was pretty far. We were in the farthest building on the back side with two full beds and it took like 5-8 minute walk to the main building. In the second room which was much closer we had a King size bed and it was about a 3 minute walk to get to the main building. We were much happier once we were moved to the king bed with a shorter walk.
The room came with shampoo, conditioner and body wash and we never had issues with warm water. Wi-fi was free in each room and there is also a TV, mini-fridge, iron and a safe. One thing we wish there was is a microwave but there hasn’t been one at either of the Disney resorts we have stayed at so far.
We enjoyed our room for what it was and how often we were actually in the room. If you’ve been to Disney/do Disney the way we do(non-stop going, going, going) then all that will matter is to have a place to rest your head, and feet at night, with the quickest transport to and from the parks.
So the Intermission Food Court has many options and we were pretty satisfied with the amount of times we actually ate there(about 5 total for all meals). The Intermission Food Court is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night snacks. They have the Specialty Shop, The Grill Shop, The Pizza Shop and the Ice Cream Shop. The GF options were pretty standard for Disney, GF chicken nuggets, cheeseburger on a GF bun, GF French fries and some other options at the Specialty Shop like chicken breast with mashed potatoes, Mahi Mahi, and Flank Steak. The Pizza shop was also great, and Dustin’s favorite! TIP: If you are going to get a pizza from the food court, don’t order just a slice. Get a whole pizza, you get more bang for your buck and you will have leftovers for later!
They also have the Singing Spirits Pool Bar, where you can grab a drink and sit next to the pool! They have over 20 options to choose from ranging from $7-$13.
They have the store at the front of the resort where you can purchase merchandise that you can get in the parks, food, snacks, beverages and things like medicine. This was so helpful! For example, I forgot q-tips and I was able to get them there.
Lastly, you can order pizza to your room from 5:00pm-1:00am, this has come in handy a couple of times.
They have two pools, the Calypso Pool and the Piano pool. The Calypso pool is right off the main building and closest to the bar. Most of the time there is a cast member playing games, doing trivia or some other sort of interactive entertainment. The Piano pool is much more relaxed and there are less people there as well.
For kiddos, they have a playground and then they have a one mile jogging trail around the property as well! Another fun thing that they have is the arcade, Dustin and I (even as adults) can spend a morning in the arcade easily, there are plenty of games to enjoy.
The last thing that they do, and probably one of my favorites is that they play movies at night. Its called “Movies Under the Stars”, its so fun because it’s a different Disney movie every night and you get to unwind while being outside enjoying a movie. You can grab a snack from the food court and grab a spot next to the pool!
We found that it varies from park to park obviously due to location but really nothing more the 10-20 minutes and it all makes it worth while when you don’t have to park your car, take the tram to the entrance and blah blah blah depending on which park you are visiting. We always say that we will always stay in a Disney Resort just for the bus system. It honestly makes your life so much easier. We also have really never had a problem with a bus not being there to pick us up. If you have the My Disney Experience App you know when the bus is coming to your destination and you can plan accordingly.
The overall atmosphere for us was great. It was a little more crowded in comparison to the All Star Movie Resort but its bigger and there are more rooms for people to stay in so it all makes sense. In our opinion we enjoyed the All Star Movie resort more for its decorations and that sort of thing. Like I mentioned before, it’s so convenient and we are all about it!
