Disney's All Star Music Resort 2014 Tour and Overview - Walt Disney World
Found in Melody Hall near the entrance to the resort are dining, shopping, and guest services. The main Guitar pool is just outside Melody Hall. You’ll find a smaller piano-themed pool deeper in the resort.
All transport to theme parks, water parks, and Disney Springs is via bus. At lower demand times, Music shares buses (except to Magic Kingdom) with sister resorts All-star Movies and All-star Sports. Shared buses stop at Sports first and Movies last—which means that Music guests are less likely than Sports guests to get a seat, but more likely than Movies guests. This makes Music of average convenience among the All-stars, and of below-average convenience among the Disney’s value resorts. The All-star resorts are Animal Kingdom Area resorts, and are the least conveniently located of the values.
Music appeals to kids interested in its specific themes, but is otherwise quite thin on general kid appeal. The rooms themselves have only the lightest theming related to their area. Adults will find it the loveliest of the value resorts, and the resort’s overall layout the easiest among the value resorts to understand and navigate.
Music has two very different room types: standard four-person rooms found in all its themed areas, and six-person family suites in the Calypso and Jazz areas.
Standard rooms at Music sleep four on two full beds in rooms pretty much identical to what you’ll find at the other All-stars. At about 260 square feet, these standard rooms are really small but adequate for sleeping. Besides the two full beds, you’ll find in the sleeping area a table and two chairs, a Tv/dresser combo, and a mini-fridge. There are no coffee-makers in these standard rooms. In the divided bath, you’ll find a clothes hanging area, hair dryer, and single sink separated from the rest of the room by a fabric curtain. Next to this you’ll find the toilet and tub in their own room. No rooms at Music have balconies, and all are accessed from exterior corridors.
Family Suites at Music sleep six in twice the area of standard rooms, and contain a living room with three furniture items that fold out into beds—a couch that folds out into a full, and a chair and an ottoman that each fold out into twins. It also has a master bedroom with a queen, and two full baths, each accessible to anyone in the room, plus a kitchenette with a mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee-maker. These rooms are not nearly as much fun as the other Disney World value resort family suites, at Art of Animation, and the fold-out beds are not nearly as comfortable for older/heavier guests. But some families will appreciate the more flexible number of sleeping spots, and others the fact that these suites are typically $70–$90 per night less expensive than those at Art of Animation.
Dining is in Melody Hall at the Intermission food court. This space is too small for the guests it tries to serve, and is below average among the values. The bar is set in the exterior wall between the food court and the pool, and serves guests from both areas. There is no table service restaurant at any value, nor any character meals.
Amenities available at the resort include nightly movies, jogging trails, playgrounds, and an arcade.
At Music, you can pay extra for “preferred” standard rooms closer to Melody Hall. 2016 peak prices for Non-preferred standard rooms are $201 and prices bottom out at $101/night. These prices are the same as similar rooms at the other All-stars, about $25–$40 per night less expensive than Art of Animation, and around $10 less per night than Pop Century.
Family Suites at Music are all the same cost, whether in Jazz or Calypso.2016 peak prices for these suite are $447 and prices bottom out at $244/night. These suites are about $70–$90 less per night than at Art of Animation.
