Spotlight On: Disney's All-Star Music Resort


   Disney's All-Star Music Resort is a great choice when wanting value and fun. This musically themed resort is split into 5 different music genres: Broadway, Rock & Roll, Country, Jazz and Calypso, each with matching buildings and decor.

  You will soon discover the theming is included in every detail (right down to the lobby wallpaper) from the moment you step into Melody Hall. While checking in, your kids can relax and watch some Disney cartoons or play a few games in the Note'able Arcade.




   After you have checked in, exit the lobby and head on down the hall to grab a bite to eat, but first take a moment to look at all the Wall of Musicians.

   


   Stop in at the Intermission Food Court where you will find several food counters with a variety of menu options sure to please everyone's tastebuds and Cast Members ready to serve you with a smile. Disney schools each employee in the business of hospitality management, to the highest degree of online detail and service.





   Before heading off to find your room, take a peek inside Maestro Mickey's. You will find everything from general toiletries (in case you forgot to pack something) to clothing to souvenirs to snacks. I bet you won't leave empty-handed!! :D
  
  
   Just outside of Melody Hall, you will find the main swimming pool, a guitar-shaped pool featuring The Three Caballeros. There is also a smaller, piano-shaped pool near the back of the resort.



   Surrounding the main pool, are the Calypso buildings. These are the preferred buildings since they are the closest to Melody Hall, the bus stops and the parking lot.


  



    Just beyond the Calypso buildings and guitar-shaped pool are the Jazz Inn buildings. They can be easily recognized by their 3-story tall instruments.

                         




    
     Further near the back of the resort you will find the Country Fair (not pictured), Rock Inn (not pictured) and the Broadway Hotel (where we stayed).



   We stayed directly across from the Beauty and The Beast box office in a standard double-bed room.


   This was waiting for us on one of the beds when we arrived.
  
   Here is some of the wall decor:


 

   And the border at the top of the wall near the ceiling:


  There was also a coat rack just outside the closet area.



   The theming continues into the bathroom.

 
  Here is a layout of the 2 room options: King or Standard Double Beds. Each room is 260 square feet.

    
  This resort also has an option of the new Disney Family Suites with a total of 520 square feet. These are located in the Jazz and Calypso buildings and sleep up to 6. For added convenience it has 2 bathrooms and a kitchenette.


  
   I was extremely happy staying in the Broadway Hotel building until we came back from the park late the first night and I found this...


    ...then I was THRILLED!! It was so beautiful! I felt like I really was on Broadway! And take a look at the hidden gem I found in the box office (that only appears at night):



    Here's the resort map showing the configuration of all the buildings, pools and Melody Hall:





   Here is a great video I found on YouTube from PopSong1 featuring a complete walk-through of the resort. Click below to watch now:





   So I hope you've enjoyed today's featured resort and mostly I hope that it's helped with your vacation planning. ;) You can book Disney's All-Star Music Resort online at disneyworld.com or by calling 407-W-DISNEY.
