Photo Tour: All Star Music’s Intermission Food Court in Walt Disney World Reopens After Refurbishment

All Star Music’s Intermission Food Court reopened on Wednesday after a refurbishment that began on August 1st. Originally slated to reopen on December 21, guests at All Star Music now have a fully functioning Food Court to enjoy a few weeks ahead of schedule.

And when it looks this great (aside from the obvious convenience), that’s especially good news…

Taking its cue from the All Star Sports End Zone Food Court (which underwent a remodel of its own last year), Intermission Food Court now employs clean lines and a more neutral, somewhat muted color palette as opposed to the bold primary colors and over-the-top murals of musicians featured in the previous design.

While it’s immediately pleasing to the eye, what I love is that it’s deceptively simple. There are some obvious tributes to musical instruments, such as the woodwinds surrounding the indoor window of the Singing Spirits Bar.

Breakfast and a Good Read

Jeff Kocan, who comments around here as JeffK, sent along this photo. I’m considering using it as a desktop screen. Or maybe I’ll make a calendar out of it.

To go along with this delicious breakfast, Jeff sent along a hilarious blog post titled “The Stars (?) From Disney’s All Star Music Resort.” As he says, it’s “poking a little gentle fun at the All-Star Music food court mural–my girlfriend and I laughed about that thing every morning during our December trip.”

It’s pretty funny, and it mentions Nigel Tufnel…and any mention of Nigel Tufnel within a Disney context worth a read, don’t you think?

Thanks, Jeff.
