In addition to new features like wood-tile floors, table beds, and updated décor, All-Star Music now boasts family suite options for its guests. These family suites give you more in terms of space, privacy, and amenities, while still staying within a decent budget.
Disney’s All-Star Music Resort Rooms
There are two categories of room at Disney’s All-Star Music Resort, standard rooms and family suites. Standard rooms do also have the preferred option, which puts you closer to Melody Hall and other resort amenities. Remember, preferred rooms don’t give you more space, they just make it easier to access areas like the main pool and Disney transportation. If you want more space in the room, you need to go for the family suite.
When walking into one of the standard All-Star Music rooms, you’ll see a queen bed, dresser space, and a small two-person table. Beyond that, a sliding bar door conceals a split bathroom with an enclosed toilet and shower-tub combination. The dresser splits into drawers for clothes storage and a mini-fridge, ideal for storing small food items. The table space converts into the pulldown table bed, which gives you more space during daytime hours.
Next to the beds are small storage cubies that serve as the nightstand, which also house outlets and charging ports for your devices. Fitting with the new Disney resort style, the beds raise up off the floor with enough room for storage underneath. This is particularly helpful with suitcases or duffel bags, which quickly clutter a hotel room. While you might not use that space with the pulldown bed, it’s nice to have with the main bed.
In the bathroom, you’ll also find other storage cubbies and hooks outside the bathroom. We always recommend unpacking if you’ll be in a room for more than a couple of nights – this bathroom storage space is ideal for all your toiletry items, and even some clothing items like hats and character ears. Use the pegs for jackets, ponchos, and pin lanyards. Trust us – in a small space, you’ll be glad you used every possible storage option.
While the amenities in the rooms at All-Star Music aren’t to the same level as the moderate resorts, you do still have the mini-fridge. This is a huge bonus if you have kids like my son, who likes his cheese sticks or applesauce in the morning. Having a place to store cold items, even if it’s just water, is a blessing.
Beyond the mini-fridge, you also have an iron and ironing board, in-room safe, hairdryer, and room phone – standard to the Disney resorts. In the bathroom, you’ll find resort towels and the wall pumps of shampoo, conditioner, and body soap. If you’re trying to pack light, it’s nice to know you can count on these amenities in the rooms at All-Star Music.

All-Star Music Family Suites
Suite Layout & Amenities
When you walk into one of the All-Star Music family suites, you’ll notice immediately the separation between the living room and the bedroom. In the living area, you have a couch and two-person table, as well as a TV mounted above the dresser. Both the couch and the table convert into two pulldown beds, making room for six total quests in the family suites. The two beds are also ideal for families with older kids who would prefer their own bed rather than having to share.
From there, you move into the kitchenette, complete with a full-size fridge-freezer, microwave, coffee maker, and sink. Above the sink, you’ll find plenty of additional storage space, so feel free to bring your own food items! Off the living room, you have the first of two full bathrooms, set up like the bathroom in the standard rooms.
In the bedroom you’ll find a queen bed, lifted for storage, as well as another dresser and mounted TV. Nightstand cubbies and an armchair complete the picture, settling you in for relaxation. Connected to the bedroom is the second full bath, this one with a glass wall shower for that added adult luxury.

To Book a Suite, or Not?
That is the question! As always, think about the top factors – budget, priorities, and time spent in the room.
In terms of budget, these rooms are about $100 more per night than a standard All-Star Music option. That takes your “value” price and pops it up to a moderate level expense. However, you are still getting more out of the room than you would at a moderate resort – you just have less in the way of resort amenities. Therefore, if more space for less money is your goal, a family suite might be right for you. At the same time, if you’re staying at All-Star Music for the lower cost, a family suite conflicts with that goal.
On the other side of both the budget and priority coin, having the ability to make some of your own food or reheat leftovers is huge. The first time I stayed in a villa with a microwave that was a real game changer for me. Not only did I make my own breakfast, I could bring home food from a Disney dining experience and have lunch the next day. Making your Disney meal go twice as far means you’re ultimately spending less!

As far as time in the room, we always recommend you think about how much you’re really going to be at your resort. If you know you’re going to hang out quite a bit, a larger room with more to offer is nice. You’re not quite on top of each other, and with another bedroom you have separation from the rest of your party. An extra bathroom is great, especially with older kids and teens, as it gets everyone showered and out the door in a timely manner.
All-Star Music Rooms Décor
With the update, the rooms have a sleek, modern feel accented with punches of color in the form of Disney characters. Pops of red add warmth to the space, seen in the curtains and the soft furniture. Above the beds are headshots of Mickey, Minnie, and Donald, with musical scenes from their episodes featured in the pulldown sections. Dark woods contrast nicely with gray tones in the main spaces, while the bathrooms feature lighter blues and greens.
These upgrades make you feel less like you’re staying at the value level, and more like an upscale hotel. Disney wants their guests to relax in comfort and style, and All-Star Music accomplishes that with these rooms.
Whether you need to take a breather or want to jam out, you’ll love life in the rooms at Disney’s All-Star Music Resort! We know you’re going to love your stay.
