Also, what time do the buses / monorail begin operating in the AM?

Thanks.
You are correct this is the best way to get there. This how we did it last yr.

We are staying in a standard room, we are driving, and have a toddler so we will be using a stroller every day. We also plan to eat breakfast in the food court most days. Just wondering if there is a building or section we should ask for when we check in? Not doing online check-in because our My Disney Experience page is incorrect, and I really don't want to link it to our reservation.

I think only Herbie Love Bug and Mighty Ducks are standard sections. We stayed one night in Herbie and didn't mind the walk . Mighty Ducks seems to be just about the same distance as Herbie to me but idk there is a pool in mighty ducks . It didn't seem to far a walk from Herbie and we were in the back building to the main pool to me .

We just booked ASMo for a spur of the moment trip at Thanksgiving.

Tell me what you love about the resort! I don't know much about it!

It is a really cute resort. It is small so not a lot of walking to and from the food court and buses. We usually request to stay in the Mighty Ducks section so we can use the Music buses and/or food court if we want.

As Goofy22 said above, the two sections with standard rooms are Love Bug and Mighty Ducks.

I recommend Mighty Ducks as you are also really close to the food court and buses for All-Star Music. Then you can choose which resort's services you want to use. I used the ASMu buses in the mornings as they were closer to my room. So you really get more than just Movies with that location.

On the MDE page and your reservation, on my last trip in July my info was never right on there either. But as long as it's correct with the Walt Disney Travel Company (I called to check) that's what is important. The MDE app/site is still not doing well with getting the reservation info matched right.

We will be at All-Star Movies in 3 weeks. My MIL just called and was told our rooms would have refrigerators. Being the skeptic that I am, can anyone confirm this?? Wondering if we need to buy a styrofoam cooler.

Thanks!

You should keep being a skeptic. I think anyone you can call now is unlikely to have accurate info about the fridge situation, and there's been no general report that fridge work is done at any All-Star resort. There has been news within the last week that fridge replacement work is complete at other resorts such as Art of Animation and Wilderness Lodge, but no mention of ASMo yet.

I'd be glad to be wrong! But I think anyone at the Walt Disney Travel Company call center should be saying there's a fridge issue going on and that can't say right now what to expect.

Yeah, that was my thought too. I guess it's no biggie if we end up spending a couple bucks for a styrofoam cooler. That just means more room for our stuff.

If you look back you will see that people have been reporting that they have working refrigerators in their rooms. I will be there shortly and will confirm when I get back.

We are just back from AsMo. We did not have a working fridge.
CM said they are trying to buy up all they can find at Home Depot and other stores just to have enough for medical needs.

We were in the Herbie section, 2nd. floor, facing the courtyard with the winner's circle.
I was at first disappointed when the CM told me the location,
but as she had made sure our three rooms were together, two of them connecting, and that we would not have to move after our Room Only when our pkg started, I didn't feel like complaining.
That said, I was REALLY pleased with our location. We were close to where we parked our van, we were very close to the Fantasia pool and kiddie pool, which we used several times, and it really wasn't far from the main bldg/ bus stop.
In the end, I was happy to be in that location.

RFID chip Mugs are in full force. We had one of our 10 cups coded wrong, but the rest worked right.

Kids loved the movies by the pool.

Happy to answer any questions anyone might have!

Did you ask for a credit for the fridge?

I did ask about it, and the CM at the front desk said "It varies...they are giving a credit sometimes, not others, depends on the situation, and you have to go through a manager."
It wasn't worth it to me to deal with it, especially after having issues with our room keys.
[IF you find yourself in a position to have a room only ressie followed by a package, and you are staying in the same room, remind them to tell the computer that you are the SAME guest staying in the room so you can use your room keys right away...otherwise you will be locked out till 3 pm. ]
