I just got back from an amazing solo trip staying at Disney’s All Star Music Resort. I have always heard these are the “low quality” resorts, and I have to disagree! While they are not The Grand Floridian, they do the trick!
My ride from the Magical express was great and the check in process was a breeze! I will say the customer service here is impeccable. I got helped quickly and when I said I wouldn’t be needing Mousekeeping, she sent me a 30 dollar gift card in an email to use on property! The best part of it all was my room was ready, at 11:30ish AM! If you go to Disney you know that it always takes forever to get into your room! I had a super early flight and had been up since 4 in the morning, so being able to hop right to my room was a blessing!
I was staying in the Country Fair building (fitting since I live in Texas) and it was WAYY in the back, which was fine when I wasnt carrying my very heavy luggage. I’m for sure an over packer, and was only traveling with a carry-on so it was jam packed. I was offered assistance with my luggage at check in, but I turned it down, I was so excited to get into my room after traveling.
I stayed in a standard studio, and off the bat it looks like most other studio rooms around Disney property. A place to lay your head, a place to eat (or work in my case), and somewhere to store your clothes, and of course a tv. The only difference was how dated everything was. However, they have started renovations in this resort, and I was lucky enough to peak in a few open doors and see how beautiful they’re going to be! I didn’t take any pictures out of respect for the workers. I can tell you in the new rooms the tv will be mounted on the wall, and some rooms looked as if they were getting a pull out couch instead of having another bed. Personally, I think this is going to really open up the small space. The new artwork was cartoony yet modern and seemed to match the art they have in the cafe.
I didn’t particularly care fore the bathroom layout, I feel like the space could have been utilized better. Luckily for me this was a solo trip and I wasn’t sharing that space with anyone! I’m sure this is something they are addressing in the remodel. I did notice that when people in other rooms flushed the toilet I could hear it, and that was a little offsetting, but how much time do we really spend in the hotel room anyways?
They did have a in room delivery menu, that included pizza and wings but they also had a plant based option on there that made me really happy!
This was the view from my window, I liked that there was plenty of greenery and even some spread out picnic tables to enjoy. I will absolutely be checking out this resort again after the renovations!
One of my favorite things was the note and Minnie card (that I will be using as a bookmark) left on my bed upon check in! Let me know if you’ve ever stayed here or have a planned trip coming up in the comments!
