My fave is Broadway. I love the walk past the little courtyard fountain and the buildings look so nice lit up at night. Close to the piano pool as well.

According to your ticker, we will be there at the same time. However, we will be staying at ASSp. Just as the refurbishment gets underway. Then in September, I will return to ASMu with my older DD. My family can't figure out why we like All Stars over POP. We've stayed there multiple times, as well. DD says she will only move to POP, if we can be put in the 50's section. The new menu at POP adds to the consideration. Originally, DD and I wanted to stay at Movies, but there were no standard rooms available for FD during our time frame. We wanted to try a new resort and be in the Mighty Ducks section.

We've stayed in all of the buildings except Jazz and Broadway is our favorite. It's close to the main building and pool but not too close so it's quiet overall. Also not usually crowded (Calypso is preferred, so folks who want a standard room close by generally request Jazz). We like the look of Broadway as well. Rock is our least favorite.

Can we say food issues?

I've been in Calypso and Country Fair. They were both fine. Even from the back I didn't find the distance to be too much. I've also been lucky that neither of my rooms faced the pool. I prefer to not face the pool for the sound level.

I am currently booked here standard in Jan 2014. My only request will be close to transportation as my mom will be with me.

My DH and I will be staying here for our Disneymoon in September My family and I have stayed at all of the All Star resorts and this one is definitely our favorite!

My worry is also in regards to the busing of Sports guests to the food court. I bet this will also affect the lines for the buses to the parks in the morning, since most people hop on the bus after having breakfast.

I am curious to hear reports of such things after the refurb starts!

I skimmed all the posts here and didn't see this asked or answered:

Is there any way to tell in advance if there are any large groups booked at any of the All Stars?

I know there are often cheer competition groups, Pop Warner in early December, etc. I would rather not be there at the same time as large groups of minimally supervised kids.

I am contemplating staying Oct. 27 - Nov. 5.

Thanks!

I remember someone asking a similar question in a different thread a few months back and another poster recommended checking the events schedule on the Wide World of Sports website to get an idea of what upcoming tournaments or competitions might be scheduled.

That is very helpful. Are there other types of groups that book All Stars that don't use the WWoS facility?

Thank you for that suggestion!

Yes! There are plenty of groups that stay at the all stars but don't use WWOS...dance groups (800+ at Christmas, spring break and late June) marching bands, orchestras and choirs. We were there the last week of June with Dance the World and 800 dancers and family were at Music.

Tried to book AoA (Our go-to resort), and were completely booked. Got a pin for free dining and booked ASMu instead. We're bummed that we're not going to the resort we were looking forward to, and even though we get the FD with All Star Music and save a ton of money, we're still hoping someone will cancel at AoA so we can switch, even though we'd love to have a reason to just stay and save the money.

We're in the 'resort is just a place to sleep' crowd, and we dont really spend a lot of time at the resort.

We want to make the best out of this, and we really aren't that picky. We requested broadway near the buses. ASMu crowd, can you guys hype us up?

So are you saying you would give up free dining if AoA became available? And you would do this even though you "really aren't that picky" and you're a "'resort is just a place to sleep' crowd"?

I know, im contradicting myself. Haha.

Put it this way, we don't care enough about the resort to justify spend our way out of the value/ low moderate group.

AoA was fantastic, and we're going back and forth about whether we would be willing to give up free dining to go back. We're kind of on the fence, wanting to be pushed onto the All Star side. haha.
