The closest McDonalds is almost 5 miles away, I'm going to say no.

You can walk. Here's a video of someone doing it from All Star Sports. It took him about 5 minutes. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YUDgUk-bTrw

There is a McDonald's on Buena Vista Drive with the All Star resorts, which is why it's being asked about. Here's the store: http://www.mcflorida.com/21485/

It is possible to walk -- maybe plan for 15 minutes from Music as it's just under a mile away on the map. It's not a super short walk, but it is possible to do and there are sidewalks and crosswalks.

Just got back yesterday from All Stars Music Suites... we had 5 adults stay and we fit perfectly. we stayed in calypso building 1 in the back and it was sooo quiet, i can count on one hand how many times I heard someone!!!! we shared buses with the other all stars but it is like in a moderate you have several stops in one resort so it was no problem because they are so close together. at busy times of the day we had our own buss. I am usually a Moderate snob but I would stay here again if we had 5 people again!

Thanks so much for posting your personal experience!! I know it's not about ASMu but did you have RFID KTTW cards? Any troubles with them?

to racinjunkie... we did have the kttw cards and no problems with them... you had to be right next to the lock for it to unlock the door.. but my husband could just hold up his walet to the lock and it would open the lock... but as far as the new entry globes into the park, no problems, they worked wonderful! I think they need to set them up differently because people go to the first globe and someone has to walk around them to get to the second globe so it is kind of a bottle neck there but it does seem to move quickly if people know how to use them! I did not see anyone with the wrist RFID thingy... it will be nice once they get all of the things that are possible on the wrist RFID ie, room key, park tickets, photopass cards, fastpass, dining, charging.... and who knows what else is in the making...

I have a quick question that I feel sort of silly for asking. Silly because I searched for 15 minutes and can't find the answer, and I'm sure it's on the board somewhere, lol.

What happened to the 3 Caballeros statue at the pool? Is it gone for good? I've seen some recent pool photos and the cement pad it sits on is empty...or I'm looking at the wrong thing

TIA!

It was gone when we checked in on 3/28 but was back a few days later, probably getting a fresh coat of paint!
