    I booked my vacation for the last week of August. My children 14 & 6 first time at WDW. I'm starting to get a little worried because I read some really negative comments about the All Star Music Resort. Should I upgrade to a moderate resort?

    It's tough to say that you should upgrade based on the negative comments you've heard.  For every negative comment you hear or read, you could easily balance them out with an equal number of rave reviews.  I would be more inclined to advise that you read all you can about the All Star Music Resort here and on other readily available Disney fan sites online.  Consider the aspects of your accommodations that are most important and make your decision from there.  I'm sure you're already aware that the All Star Music is one of Disney's value resorts, and as such it doesn't offer the same level of amenities as are available in some of the pricier resorts.  That said, you have to decide whether you'll be spending enough time at your resort to justify spending more on your room.

    I can tell you this: I've learned not to rely solely on reviews when making my vacation decisions.  For years I was afraid to eat at Mama Melrose in Hollywood Studios because it was always getting less than great reviews.  Eventually we gave it a try anyway and it has become one of our favorite places to dine.  I'm so glad I didn't let those bad reviews keep me from experiencing it for myself. 

    Good luck with your decision!
