Just back from ASMU & ASMO- Awesome Stay!
Just back from a 7 night trip with my 3 kids ages 10, 9 and 5. We stayed for 4 nights at ASMU. Our flight home got cancelled so we ended up staying 3 more nights at AS Movies. We could have stayed at ASMU but would have had to change rooms, so we decided to try out a new hotel. I have to say that both hotels were awesome. Both our rooms were spotless upon arrival.
At ASMU, I requested the Jazz Inn and that is where they placed us. We were very close to the lobby & both pools. Our room was so quiet, I think the only thing I ever heard from another room was the toilet flushing. The dive in movie at night was great and the food at the food court was really surprisingly good.
At ASMO, we were placed in the Mighty Ducks building. We were on the 3rd floor facing the quiet pool. My kids loved having a pool to themselves & it was great because the laundry room was right there. Once again, we didn't hear any noise from other rooms.
Buses were fantastic, definitely the best service I have had at any Disney hotel. We never waited more than 5 minutes. Only once from MK was the bus full, and since I was carrying my sleeping son, I had several people offer me a seat. We chatted with lots of nice people on the buses. I think maybe twice we shared with the other all stars but since they are right next to each other, this is a complete non-issue. The moderates have way more bus stops than the 3 all-stars combined.
This stay was so much better than our last one at POR- we had so many issues there from a dirty room, to getting locked our of our rooms multiple times. And we were so far from the lobby. I loved the size of the All Stars, you were never too far from anything.
I know a lot of people debate moderate vs values but based on this trip, I would definitely happily stay at an All Star again. We did miss having a pool slide & a hot tub, but other than that, it was great and well worth the savings.
