We stayed at All Star Music from 11-28-09 through 12-04-09. There were four of us, my husband, my mom and my then 3 year old son. We decided to stay at this resort, because of the cost and the fact that we could get a family suite. We try to save as much as possible on our Disney World trips, so that we can take more of them. So we don’t stay at deluxe resorts and tend to stay mostly at value resorts. However, the thought of my husband and I sharing a full size bed, instead of a queen sized drove us to our decision of this family suite. It was cheaper than getting two adjoining rooms, but was plenty big enough for us.
The suite consisted of a living room with a pull out double sized sofa, where my son and mom slept. She said it was very comfortable. There was also a chair and ottoman, where each of them pulled out into a twin bed.
Then there was the bedroom with it’s own tv ( a plus) and one queen sized bed. There was also a small kitchen area with a microwave, fridge, sink, and coffee maker. And there were two bathrooms. This was a plus with a little one that had only been potty trained for about 6 months at the time. Because some times when he had to go he had to go right then. It was plenty of room for the 4 of us and even if we had 2 more people it would have been okay. Of course it would have been more crowded, but I think we could have done it.
The amenities are the same as any other value resort at Disney World.
The food court was okay. Busy a lot of the times and we were there during a slow period. It was really packed at breakfast time. No favorite food.
The resort buses were great. I think there were only like 2 times that we had to share a bus with the other all stars. I don’t remember ever having to stand on a bus leaving our resort, which I did have to do on our last trip where we stayed at CBR. The walk to the bus stop from our room was short, because the family suites are located in the preferred buildings, so they are close to the main pool, bus stop and food court. When leaving the parks, our stop always seemed to be the bus stop that was the farthest from the park entrance. I really think it’s Disney’s way of saying if you pay more money you get a closer bus stop. :) The buses weren’t that crowded except at park closing. But I don’t remember waiting for a really long time during any of our trip.
Yes, we would stay there again. We actually had it booked and then changed to CBR for our trip that we just got back from before Thanksgiving. The only reason was because of the better free dining plan with the moderate resort.
The only thing I didn’t like about the resort was that you had to check out the life vests from the arcade. And you had to show a Key to the World, because they would charge you 50 bucks if they weren’t returned. They must have just started this, because we had stayed at Pop in March of 2009 and the vests were at the pool. And we found out that at CBR this last trip that the vests were at the pool. So I don’t know if this is something only at ASMusic, only at Values or if it is something that they tried and have now decided against it. But it was kinda a pain to have to walk into the arcade with just my suit on and then fortunately I had my Key. And it could have been a lot worst if we gone to the other pool and not the main one which was at least close to the arcade. But still annoying.

We have stayed 3 times at All-Stars Movies. It is considered a value resort, and for the amount of time we spend in our room, we thought it was crazy to spend a lot of money just for somewhere to sleep and shower. The room has 2 double beds, vanity in the room, and the shower/tub and commode in the other room. The room was big enough for me, my husband and our 2 daughters. The rooms we have stayed in have always been clean. We ask for preferred view for our room when we book through our travel agent to get us as close as possible to the main building (food court, gift shop, bus stop). I did not like having to pay extra for our fridge ($10.65 per day) but we needed it to hold our breakfast stuff and water. The food court is pretty good. My family loved the fruit, carrot cake, and waffles especially. Bus service from the resort is good. However, when you leave the resort to go the parks you will find that the All Stars bus stops are always furtherest from the main gate of the park. Also, most every return trip to the resort the bus was packed beyond comfort. One night we had to wait 45 minutes for a bus back to All-Stars from the Magic Kingdom. Our last visit All Stars Movies was switching computer systems and we had a lot of trouble with getting keycards that would work. We went through 5 sets of cards and were even locked out of our room one night and had to get management to let us in. I was very dissappointed in their who cares attitude about the whole thing. For that reason I may not want to stay there again but my girls love it so good with all the giant characters around the rooms I may let them talk me into it.
You might consider staying at All Star Music.
