The All-Star Music Resort is one of 4 themed "value resorts" located at the Walt Disney World Resort, in Orlando, Florida. This resort features a music theme and similar to Disney's All-Star Sports Resort, Disney's All-Star Movies Resort, and Disney's Pop Century Resort, this resort is decorated with giant novelty items such as guitars, trumpets and a drums. The resort is located on the southern portion of the WDW property. One of the two pools is shaped like a guitar, while the other is shaped like a piano; a very small formal rose garden separates the two. Pairs of guest room buildings are themed to calypso music, jazz, rock, Broadway shows, and country-western music. The music theme extends to the wallpaper, pictures, and bedspreads in the guest rooms. It is generally regarded as the quietest of the "value" hotels, and therefore seems to be more suited to adult guests. However, the resort layout results in the longest walks back to the rear most buildings than any of the other All-Star resorts. Initially Disney provided separate buses to each of the All-Star resorts. In an apparent move to save costs, all 3 All-Star resorts usually share a common bus route; stopping first at All-Star Sports, next at All-Star Music and then last at All-Star Movies. Being the last resort for pick-up, guests frequently find standing room only and sometimes cannot get on the first bus when departing All-Star movies. The problem is less frequent at All-Star Music and usually not a problem at All-Star Sports.
