The 246-acre Disney’s All-Star Music Resort doesn’t “miss a beat” with giant banjos, guitars, trombones, conga drums and maracas boldly greeting guests. A collection of three-story buildings — which feature themes like Broadway, Calypso, Jazz, Country and Rock ‘n’ Roll — make up the 1,704 room hotel. The music theme continues into the two pools, one in the shape of a guitar and the other a grand piano. Family suites that sleep up to six can be found in the Calypso and Jazz wings. These accommodations include three separate sleeping areas, two bathrooms, and a kitchenette with rates ranging from $239-$422, depending on the season.
