Just got back from 10 days at ASMu. Great place to stay for the money and the small amount of time we spent in our room. I couldn't imagine paying for the Poly for as little time as we actually spent in Music. PLUS...it was everything that we wanted - family friendly, quiet, clean, food easily available, pools.

We did see an armadillo, frogs, mice, some bugs (giant roach looking things), snails, and several hundred lizards outside on property. The whole state is a swamp - I didn't expect anything less. However,,,,,I was very glad not to see any of those things in my room .

Also, the doughnuts and larger milk have to be purchased from the gift shop, not the food court. We figured this out on our last day - after we bought 3 little milks each day for cereal.

Tip - my son had medicine that needed to be refrigerated. We had planned on just getting ice and keeping it in the ice bucket (with a bag of course). However, when we got there our room wasn't ready yet so we had to leave some things with the luggage service for the day. At check in I asked whether they would be able to keep the medicine somewhere for the day and the CM told me since we had medicine they would bring me a complimentary refridge. Please don't lie just to get a free fridge. Just wanted to let you know.

Definitely bring your own quarters for laundry $4 per load. I spent 45 minutes one morning (when still dark) trying to find change.

Overall, would definitely return.

Yikes, is that for the wash and dryer? I so seldom use washer and dryers when we vacation, but I think I'll need to do a load on our next trip. I do like the fact that the location is so central and you can relax by the piano pool while doing your laundry.

35 more days till ASMu!

Yes, that is the total for both the washer & dryer ($2 each). They take 1/2 hour to wash and 1/2 hour to dry. Some of our heavier items didn't get dry all the way. If I had had more time, I would have done a second cycle - for another $2 .

Tip for doing laundry - if the dryers are available - divide the laundry into several dryers - saves time and gives you dry laundry. It's worth the extra few bucks!

Not true, I have a reservation for December 2008 with a AAA rate. 20% off each night except the last 2 because they aren't in the Value season. Could be that there aren't any AAA rooms left.

Just called again today and was told by this CM that there are never any discounts on suites.

I don't know what to say, because I have the discount on my package ($250) and I have talked to others on here that were also able to get a discount.

When I booked our bounceback for next Sept with free dining I could have gotten the family suites. However, decided to go with 2 rooms at pop as they were less expensive. Free dining has not previously been allowed with the suites. So, maybe their policy is changing somewhat.

Going to the Allstar Music in less than 2 weeks and I am getting excited. My brother wanted to know what kind of alcohol they sell. I do not drink so I've never really paid attention. It seems I remember beer at the food court, do they sell wine or anything else at the store?

Just got AAA rate for Family Suites

Just booked a room only AAA rate for a Family Suites at the end of August. Not sure, but I think for a AAA rate it has to be Value Season??? And I think the AAA rate rooms often sell out early.
