All Star Music Resort

Image
Music is everywhere at Disney’s All-Star Music resort! Gigantic icons will welcome you, and the themed buildings will delight the young and young at heart.
All-Star Music is located in the Animal Kingdom Resort area.  Additionally, it is near ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex and Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park.
All-Star Music is a value resort with over 1600 rooms.  Guests can choose standard rooms or preferred rooms with a king size bed or two double beds. Both standard and preferred rooms offer views of the parking lot, courtyard, or pool.  The real difference is in the location. Preferred rooms are located nearer to Melody Hall, which is closer to transportation, shopping, and dining. Being closer to Melody Hall definitely comes in handy after a long day at the parks!
A typical room has two double beds, a small table with two chairs, television, nightstand, telephone, dresser, wall mirror, luggage rack, closet area, themed light fixtures, megaphones or stars, and a clock radio.…

PARK #4 – MAGIC KINGDOM, PART 2
As we hooked a right past Cinderella Castle and headed towards Tomorrowland, I only had one thought in my mind, ”I hope he doesn’t fall asleep in Carousel of Progress.” My son loves this attraction and was showing no signs of slowing down, but parents, we all know that in a moments notice that can change! I got the thumbs up that he was ready to go as we sat down in the last two seats at the end of one of the last rows for ride #30 Carousel Of Progress. After 20 minutes of non-stop entertainment, we hopped right next door to ride #31 The Peoplemover.
Next, we ran up to Fantasyland to knock out ride #32 Peter Pan’s Flight (FP15) & #33 It’s A Small World. Then we grabbed a FastPass for ride #34 Haunted Mansion (FP16). While on Haunted Mansion, John said to me, “Daddy, I think we are going to do this!” I still didn’t want to jinx anything,…

PARK HOP #3 – HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS TO EPCOT


We departed Hollywood Studios at 3:53 pm and made the short drive over to Epcot entering at 4:21 pm. Another solid hop of 28 minutes.  PARK #3 - EPCOT

We had 9 rides to get done with a target goal of 3 hours. As we made the long walk from the entrance to the World Showcase, John looks up and says, “I love seeing that golf ball every time we come here!”

I on the other hand was a bit nervous looking at Spaceship Earth. It has ended a lot of challengers hopes and dreams in the past with its tendency to break down or just stop for no apparent reason whatsoever. I’m a big Game of Thrones fan, so I have dubbed it “The Breaker Of Runs.” But, for the time being, we had other rides to check off the list first.

First on the list was our fastpass for ride #21, Frozen Ever After (FP9).…
