The theme is, quite obviously - Music, with many different genres being featured. The pools are a flight of fancy with one being in the shape of a guitar and the other shaped like a grand piano. And once again, dining is counter service only - no table service.
Rooms are a small 260 square feet. But the Disney All Star Music Hotel offers a little twist - family suites. That’s right there are 192 suites at this hotel - a godsend for large families like mine!
One of these suites can sleep up to six people. There is one bedroom with a queen size bed. And then there is a main living area with a pull out couch and two sleeper chairs - perfect for the kids (although I know mine would fight over who gets the bed - like they even have a chance!). While the space is still tight - each suite only has 520 square feet - I prefer this arrangement over 2 connecting rooms. And did I mention the flatscreen TV?
The All Star Music family suites also feature a small kitchen area with a mini fridge and microwave. And - woohoo! - there are TWO bathrooms.
I know that many large families will stay at a hotel off property just to gain more space. That option is definitely worth considering but I really like being on property so I can enjoy the perks of staying at the Disney hotels.
One more thing to keep in mind about the Disney All Star Music resort is that the Disney Bus stop is in front of Melody Hall (which is the check-in building). It can be a long walk from one of the rear Country Fair buildings to Melody Hall. I have learned to ask if there is a room closer to the bus stop available when I check in. At least it is worth a try!
