I just priced out a stay in Oct...using weekend nights. It came to $342 for AoA and $292 for ASMusic. Not a huge difference...just $50. For that $50 I would be staying at AoA, in a heartbeat. I stayed at both last month....couldn't wait to get out of Music and over to AoA. Granted, I was in a regular room, not a suite. But I have to tell you...AoA feels vastly different than Music!!! The theming is so much better, the pools are better (all of them, not just the main pool), the whole setup is worth the addtl $50 a night...at least for me. A value resort is considered a value because there are no pool slides, no table service restaurants available, no hot tubs, beds are smaller. So sure, AoA is more expensive than the other 'values' but you are getting more for your money. But not enough to move it up to a moderate level..they have pool slides, table service restaurants, and hot tubs!!!
