All-Star Music Resort

Disney’s All-Star Music Resort is one of five Value Resorts located on Walt Disney World property. It also has two sister hotels located nearby: Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort and Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort. Being a Value Resort, All-Star Music is cheaper per night and doesn’t offer the same amenities as Moderate and Deluxe Resorts. But, it is still a popular resort, especially due to pricing.

Overview

All-Star Music is in the Animal Kingdom Resort Area. For a Value Resort, it’s a decent size and has different buildings with Family Suites, Standard Rooms, or Preferred Rooms.

If you want to be in closer proximity to the food court and transportation, then you may want to consider booking a Preferred Room.

These rooms cost more due to location, but they may be worth it for those who don’t want to walk far between their room and Melody Hall, the main building where the lobby, food court, gift store, and transportation is located.

As for the buildings, they are inspired by different genres of music, including Calypso, Jazz Inn, Rock Inn, Country Fair, and Broadway Hotel.

There are even large-sized, music-inspired icons outside of each building. The decor makes for great photos.

Here’s everything you need to know about All-Star Music.

Rooms And Bathrooms

There are three types of rooms to book at All-Star Music. You can either make reservations for a Standard Room, a Preferred Room, or a Family Suite.

Standard and Preferred rooms can sleep up to four adults and Family Suites can sleep up to 6 adults.

The standard amenities are included in the rooms, including a hairdryer, TV, free WiFi, a coffee maker, telephone, in-room safe, and an iron and ironing board. The Family Suites come with a few more amenities, like a microwave, 2 full bathrooms, and a kitchenette.

There are rooms that have been refurbished with plenty of outlets and USB ports.

The newly refurbished rooms have beds with space underneath for luggage, along with drawers, cubbies, and an open closet for other personal items. The remodeled bathrooms also have a lot of counter space and storage, as well. 

Rooms that have yet to be refurbished are out-of-date, don’t have storage underneath the beds, and less storage.

Take note that some of the rooms also have a pull-down bed. You can remove the chairs from the table and pull down on the silver handles for access to another bed.
