Where does everyone get these discount codes? I never seem to find any of them...

Yes, all of the rooms and sections of All Star Music have been completly refurbished. The rooms were newly painted, new carpet installed, new furniture, new curtains, new bedding, a new bowed shower curtain was added to the tub area and a privacy cutain was put in that seperates the vainity area from the sleeping area.(Like Disney's mod resorts have).

These renovations started in early 2006 when the Family Suites were being added to All Star Music and the renovations were completed this last June 2007.

Here a photo of the old style room at ASMu allearsnet:



This is a photo of a newly refurbished room at ASMu from allearsnet:



Here is a website with more photos of the newly refurbished rooms at All Star Music.

Look at the Jazz Inn section with new posted:

Have fun at Disney!

Ooooohhh! I just love the new decor! We stayed there back in 1995 when my kids were just 4yrs. and 14 mths. Now they're 17 and 13 and we're going back in December. I can't wait!

See my earlier Post. With the new things they have added, Music is the best Disney hotel. Actually, from what I hear - they have the highest ratings at all of WDW right now.

Not bad for the price.

AAA is not a code, you just have to give your AAA # when making a reservation, if they have a AAA room available. The codes are given out by Disney and are usually on their website and they are alos then posted at the top of the message board page her on the DIS, and on Mousesaver.com. Some people get a postcard or e-mail with a code and others call in and there is a code attached to their name or address. HTH!!

Just wanted to let everyone know that I stayed in the Broadway section and my room did not have a privacy curtain. So... I guess they all dont!

Did you notice an overhead tract were the curtain should go?
Is it possible yours was torn off by a previous guest and not repaired before your stay?

You are the first guest I have read about that has said that they did not have a privacy curtain so that is why I was wondering.

I am sorry yours was missing.

I hope you had a good stay otherwise.

I was also in Broadway and there was no privacy curtain either. You can see in my picture above there is no track.

It's funny that they would put the privacy curtain in some rooms but not in others.

I'm enjoying your pictures! Keep posting them, please! I'd also love to see more pictures of icons, pools, and food court. My kids and I looked at some pictures when we made a room request for our reservation. Dd calls the Rock section "the Hannah Montana" buildings and the Country Fair section "the Billy Ray Cyrus buildings."

1. If you're staying in the Rock Inn section, how far is it to walk to use the pools at AS Sports or to get the bus at AS Sports? Also, if you're staying in the Broadway section, how far is it to go to AS Movies to use one of the pools there? TIA!

2. Is it a far walk to the AS Music food court and bus stops from Broadway or Rock Inn?

Thank you for your help!
Don't know if anyone answered this question, but it is an easy walk to the other all star resorts from music. I walked to each on separate mornings and took pictures. I thought I might want to try the different pools, but I actually thought the piano pool as ASMU was the best of ALL the all star pools I saw. It was never crowded, nicely landscaped, and very quiet. I saw no reason to leave and try another pool. It is sooo close to Broadway and Rock. Both BW and Rock are short walks to the main pool and food court.

I stayed at POP before ASMU and ASMU was a better stay. The pools were less crowded and the buses were FAR less crowded. I liked it better than POP. I thought all the all stars were really cute and I enjoyed my morning walks/runs through all of the resorts.
