    We are considering stay at the All Star Music family suites. I had two questions. Which section should I request to be the quietest? Also how long are the bus lines? In the past at Art of Animation we had to wait over an hour just to get on a bus. Thanks


    Thanks for your question! 

    Let's start with the quiet question. If you are shooting for one of the family suites at Disney's All-Star Music Resort, you should ask for a room in the Jazz Inn section. The buildings in this section do not face a pool, which will greatly lower the noise level. 

    If you are getting a standard room, then ask for the Broadway Hotel section, which also gets you away from the pools, as well as surrounds you with more lawn areas.

    In both cases it would not be a bad idea when checking in to go to the desk and ask the Cast Member there if they could get you a quiet room. Often times the rooms that face the parking lots, and therefore are away from the central area of the resort, will lower the noise level as well. Each of the building complexes has rooms that are both central facing, as well as outward facing, and the latter are better for quieter stays.  

    Now as to the bus times, I am not sure that you will find bus wait times significantly improved from your last experience, though an hour wait seems like an anomaly. Typically the bus service comes to the three All Star Resorts in order, going first to the Disney's All-Star Sports Resort, then they go to All-Star Music, then proceed on to Disney's All-Star Movies Resort. That can mean that the bus comes to your resort already partially full with most of the seats filled. My expectation is that you will find that bus times are improving at these resorts, but I cannot promise exact times. You really should be able to expect a bus to any given destination to arrive at your resort approximately every 20 minutes during standard times. If you do not, contact the front desk and have them call for support.  

    You also might still want to consider that a repeat stay at Disney's Art of Animation Resort. Since the addition of the Disney Skyliner, you can avoid buses all together when going to Disney's Hollywood Studios and EPCOT. That might make for a more favorable stay than the last time.  

    I also love that now you can use both the resort hotel room televisions and the My Disney Experience App to see when the next bus to your destination will arrive at the resort. That way you don't have to head off to bus stop until the next bus is nearing arrival at the resort. This means less time at the bus stop, and more relaxing in your room. 

    Write me back if you have more questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
