Hi everyone! Our trip is getting closer and I'm looking for some advice on where to request if we want to be near transportation (especially race morning!) and near the food court? Or would we be better off somewhere else? Thanks for any help you can give!

I am switching my reservation to Music for May 28- June 7. I'm excited reading this thread and hope to learn more before the trip.

The Calypso building is closest to the main building.

But is that just for preferred rooms, that you have to pay extra for?

We didn't request anything but that's the building we were put in. We had a family suite so I'm not sure if that is why or not.

If you are in a single room...not a family suite...Calypso is in deed a preferred room that you pay extra for.

The family suites are located only in Calypso and Jazz.


Dreamer2012....you can request Jazz but it's mainly family suites. Your next best option at Music would be either Broadway or Rock. If you switch to Movies and get in the Mighty Ducks section you would be closer to the Music buses and food court than any of the buildings beyond Jazz.

Hey guys...we'll be staying at the AS Music resort end of the month and looking forward to our trip. Curious as to the selection and prices of food at the Market in the food court. Since we opted for a family suite...we were planning on having some breakfast food and healthy snacks in the room. We'll probably ship down some non-perishables...but wondering if we're better off having a grocery delivery for things like fresh fruit and milk, or if the Market has a decent selection of these things.

I've never been, but I saw some pics of the market on the easywdw site. There is pics of the entire resort plus the food area. From my experience with other disney grocery shopping, it's okay if you need something, but it will be more expensive than normal. Whether it's better to deliver groceries would depend on how much you plan to use.

The market is not a market at all....it's just a corner of the food court that has random items ie:bottled drinks, cold dessert cups(think jello), side salads. Fruit wise your really only going to find apples, oranges, bananas and fruit cups. I think the apples etc. are about $1 per piece but could be more now. The fruit cups are approx $4. They used to have half gallons of milk but I didn't see that the last time I was there. I think those were around $4.

I agree with the PP that it really depends how much you need as to whether it's worth while for a grocery delivery. If you are only going to want fresh fruit and milk then I would bring the fruit from home and buy the milk at the food court.

Thanks guys! Still undecided on how much food we'll keep in the suite. If there was an oven/range and we could cook full meals...it'd be a different story. Is the refrigerator in the suites full size or just typical mini fridge? I don't see myself shipping fruit though...so that may be what seals the deal for just biting the bullet and doing grocery delivery.

The fridge is a tall bar fridge

So I'm making a pack list for our trip...and I don't want to make any assumptions about in-room amenities at asmu...but I also can't find a list on the disney website. Are amenities fairly standard compared to a normal hotel? Specifically I'm thinking about complimentary coffee and a hair dryer in the bathroom...although I'm sure I'll come up with others. Does anyone know where I can find an amenities list or at least give me a low down on where it may differ from a standard hotel? Anything I might want to be sure to pack that I wouldn't normally think of for a standard hotel? We've booked a family suite FWIW.

Being in a suite, you will have a kitchenette with a coffee maker and microwave, along with a refrigerator. Standard (non-suite) rooms at Disney value resorts don't have coffee makers or microwaves although they are supposed to have a fridge.

And yes, there will be hair dryers. (Standard rooms have hair dryers as well.)
