Need current info on All Star Music or Movies

Just found out that the food court at All Star Sports will be closed for refurbishment in October. The All Star Sports is my favorite because of the food court so now I need to rethink our resort.
We've stayed at All Star Music and Movies in the past and had bad experiences with our room at both resorts .This was years ago so I'm wondering if things have improved lately.
I suppose if all else fails, we can still keep our reservation at All Star Sports and just walk to another food court to eat. It's not that big of a deal.

I heard that while the food court at the All-Star Sports Resort is closed there will be dedicated bus service to the other All-Star Resorts so you can visit the other food courts. I don't know how much of a hassle that will be. They will have grab and go(cold) food available at All-Star Sports, in the arcade area. Also the Arcade at All-Star Sports will be closed for the duration of the food court renovation, if that is important to you or your family. I know that things need to be updated, but it sure seems like an inconvenient time to close a food court(summer is the "on" season). Oh well, it is what it is. Have a great trip!

We have stayed at Movies twice and liked it. We basically sleep, use the pool and have a few meals at the food court.

It might help if you elaborated on what kind of room problems you had.

The All-Star resorts are under one general manager, so it's unlikely one is going to be far better or different than the other.

I'd like to know what room problems you had too, but I also think that you're likely to have a fine experience at either Music or Movies.

I know that the AS sports just got room soft refurbishments. That includes new mattresses, rugs, bedding, and I think paint job. No new furniture, though, on this one.

I don't know the last time they refurbished the other two all star rooms. If anyone knows, maybe you could post?

I'm guessing the dedicated bus service is just for the refurb, correct? It's not a permanent thing where all the AS resorts will have it from then on out, right? Though I've always wish they would.

Yes, the bus is just for the period when the Sports food court is closed.

If you stay in the Mighty Ducks section of Movies it's easy to walk to both food courts of Music and Movies.
