We checked into a preferred room at ASMusic yesterday evening. Here is the status on several recent hot topics:
1. Refrigerators: we do not have a working fridge (note we are in a regular room not a family suite), did not request one. Ice machine on 2nd floor of bldg 10 isn't working but machine on 3rd floor is and we haven't had a problem getting ice.
2. Food court traffic (with ASSports food court closed): when we ate dinner at 6:30 yesterday evening, it was nearly empty. Traffic was also low at 8:00 this morning, but at 10:45 it was pretty packed (not impossibly so but very busy - I saw a few open tables, lines to get food were 4 to 6 people deep at each area)
3. RFID mugs: they are here and active. Some people seem to be struggling to understand how they work but for the most part things seem to be going OK with them

Hope that helps someone!

Thanks so much for the Music update. We'll be there in 18 days and I've been getting nervous about the food court and bus situation from Sports' closure.

Is there still the 5 minute wait between refills like it was during the trial a year ago?

How about the pools and bus lines? Does the Sports refurb has an impact?

Thanks for the update and enjoy your trip!

How long is the Sports refurb going to take? Thinking about booking Music for short trip early January.

Thanks!

Thanks for the info! Given that Sports was just refurbished, would it be better to stay there or Music? Never been to either. Is only for 3 nights 1/2-1/5.

Thanks!
Carole

The only reason I like sports better is bc they are the first bus stop so your always picked up first and always dropped off first but either hotel is great

Good point! Probably pretty important given how crowded the All Star buses get! Thanks for the tip!
