If you want a guaranteed refurbished room at All Star Movies---our team can help you!  Agent Suzanne chose a preferred room and experienced the newly refurbished room!  
It’s a super clean option with hard surface flooring, many plug ins for technology charging---and was sleek in design.  The space was simple and the refrigerator is very helpful. The easily accessible murphy bed is great for more space during the day--and sleeping space, at night.  Just as comfortable as the stationary bed! #TESTED!

Minnie Van Service is available through the Lyft App which provides a Disney Cast member to drive you and also includes child seats for up to 2 kiddos and 6 total guests in the Chevy Traverse option.  Prices Vary.

Taxi, Uber, and Lyft are available for quick service (and lesser cost than Minnie Vans) to anywhere you may need to go, on or off of Disney property. Prices vary.

If you happen to drive your own car to Disney, overnight parking at All Star Movies is $15 per night.

Pools:
There is 1 feature pool and 1 secondary pool at All Star Music.  The pools are all themed and some have replicas of favorite Disney friends---even Mickey shooting cold water.  
There are no water slides, and no hot tubs or jacuzzis at All Star Music.  Life vests are provided in a variety of sizes at all pools.  

Playground:
There is a playground near Toy Story Building 9 and near the Cinema Hall, where dining is found.  It is designed with safety in mind---and can be a great place for littles to let out some energy.  

Dining:
Value resorts, including All Star Music, do not have full service--sit down dining. Instead at All Star Music, you’ll find The World Premiere Food Court, which serves a variety of foods to keep the whole crew happy!  This is also where you can refill your resort mug that comes with the dining plan! Free resort refills for your whole stay! You can access toaster oven, hot water, ice, condiments and napkins in this area---along with so many meal and snack options.  Dining plan or other payments are accepted.  

World Premiere Food Court Hours:
  • Breakfast 6:00 AM - 11:00 AM 
  • Lunch 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM 
  • Dinner 5:00 PM - 12:00 AM
Pizza Delivery is available to your room--but it can take a long time---for just ok food.  I’d suggest walking to the food court---or even calling a local Dominos!  
Silver Screen Spirits Bar is located on the way to the Fantasia Pool.  There is a small area for outside seating.  
Just outside of the food court and on the way to the Fantasia Pool is the Silver Screen bar--It has outdoor seating, a limited drink menu and is usually open 12 PM to 12 AM daily, weather permitting.

Gift Shop:
All Star Movies gift shop is Donald’s Double Feature and it is located near the other notable areas---dining, check in, just off the lobby.  There are many fun finds here---as well as items you may have forgotten at home like pharmacy needs- and basic groceries (at Disney prices, of course!)

Reel Fun Arcade:
An option, in case you have not already had enough fun, while at Disney!  

Exercise:
There is NOT a fitness center at All Star Movies---but there is a 1 mile jogging path.  It is paved and connects the 3, All Star resorts. 

Child Care:
In case you are in need of child care, there are a couple of options that can provide in-room sitting.  Your On the Road Travel Magic Planner can help you with many other onsite options as well that could provide you a little time away from the little mousketeers that you are sharing the magic of Disney with!

Cons:
This hotel shares a bus with the other All Star Hotels and as a result, bus Lines and waits can be long
Rooms are small
No character meals or full service dining options available at the resort
Limited amenities
Remote location with long travel times

Pros:
THEMING!  All Star Movies is VERY Kid friendly, and brings movies to life at the hotel
