    We are planning our daughter's first trip to WDW 3/2010. Staying at the ASM and I have been reading reviews and I'm a bit concerned. I'm afraid of the potential noise issues with the large groups. Anyway to avoid some of this? Room locations etc.

    Hi, Christy!   I just spent a few days at the All-Star Music Resort and had a great time!   It is a large resort and does attract school/student groups, so you may have some noise.   I must say, though, when we were there (mid-August) and there was at least one student group at the resort, we didn't have to contend with any noise issues.   But just to be safe, here are a few suggestions:

    -Request a room on the 3rd floor.   The higher you are from the ground, the farther you are from any potential noise, and you won't hear any footsteps above you.

    -Request a room AWAY from the pools and food court.  While closer rooms are more convenient, the common play and food areas naturally attract the crowds.

    -When checking-in, ask that you are not staying near a football team or marching band if possible!   Most likely, you wouldn't have problems staying by groups, but if you can avoid it, you might be better off.  

    I suggest noting the 3rd floor and a room away from the pools on your reservation.   You can then confirm upon check-in that you are in an area that will tend to be quieter.   While requests cannot be guaranteed, cast members will do their best to make your vacation a pleasant one!   Good luck!
