Refurbishments Have Begun At Disney’s All-Star Music Resort
I have some exciting news to share! It appears that Disney has begun refurbishing Disney’s All-Star Music Resort! This is the hotel that pays homage to some of the world’s most popular music genres, including country, jazz, rock ‘n’ roll, calypso and Broadway-style show tunes. It’s a family favorite due to it usually offering the lowest rates on property, plus it also has Family Suites that accommodate up to 6 guests.
The Value Resorts have been going through a major update that includes swapping out the carpets for laminate flooring, changing bed configuration, and upgrading the furnishings and amenities.
The biggest change is moving from the common layout of 2 Double Beds to 2 Queen Beds. The interesting part is that although one is a Standard Queen Bed the second bed is a Murphy style bed that folds down from the wall. During the day it converts to a table.
In the Value Resort Category, Disney started first with Pop Century then began work on Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort. Now that work is apparently completed there, they have moved North to start on All-Star Music. Presumably Disney’s All-Star Sports will be next once Music is complete.
Just like at Disney’s All-Star Movies, Disney is tackling Preferred area first. The construction can currently be found on Building 10, located next to the Calypso Pool (also going through a refurbishment) and Melody Hall.
Building 10, in the Calypso section of the Resort, currently offers Preferred Rooms with King Beds, Preferred Rooms with 2 Double Beds, and some of the Family Suites.
Work orders have been taped to the windows.
The walkways around the building have also been blocked off.

The below video is of a post refurbishment room at Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort. They won’t look exactly the same but it will be very similar. (I apologize for the choppiness of the video!)
It is unclear how long this refurbishment process will take. But, we assume that all Value Resorts will be refurbished in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary in 2021.
I would suggest that if you have an upcoming 2020 reservation at Disney’s All-Star Music Resort, to put in a request for a newly refurbished room. Disney doesn’t guarantee these request but will do everything they can to make them happen (based on availability). Another suggestion I have is to book your reservation with a trusted Walt Disney World travel partner like MickeyTravels, a Platinum Level agency. They can help you plan the perfect Disney Vacation.
