Calypso is almost done. There were taped construction signs on a few rooms on the first floor and the new signage and vibrant green wall painting were still being completed. I was informed that the current plan is: 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 (clockwise on the map). However, we know that plans often change.
I might have to switch my booking next april to broadway section then for my standard room booking preference

Interesting, I was thinking/hoping they would tackle all of the preferred rooms and suites first.

    I would like to think by next September music would be finished. I think it depends what matters more to you: being in the country section or having a 100% chance of a refurbed room at movies. Is the price a big difference?
    I'd much prefer a refurb room for sure!!

    I read on Facebook group that looks like only couple rooms to go in building 10. Building 9 is completely closed and they saw some workers around building 8 today

    I'm booking shortly. I've 4 rooms total to book for a family trip and we're hoping for a free dining promo 🙏 Last year Movies was not included in the promo that's why I'm aiming towards Music!
    Oh okay. Well hopefully they include Movies this time!

    Thanks for the update. Sounds like maybe they haven't started on building 8 yet so I might leave that one alone for now. I'll change building 10 to complete as soon as those few rooms are done!

    With that being said, is Pop nicer? This is an adults only trip.
    Yes IMO Pop is nicer and with the gondola service prices there are likely to continue to climb so maybe good to grab while you can. Pop is more $ than an All Star so up to you to decide if the value is there.

    Many of us would love this. However, Movies hasn't been included in FD for many years. In fact, I can't remember it in the FD list at least in recent memory. Movies remains the most popular AS resort with decent turnover in comparison to Music and Sports so WDW has no reason to include it.

    If FD is the priority, I would never count on Movies. Be ready in advance of any drop to quickly book either Music or Sports.

    ps thank you for this thread! Great to have up to date reports of AS room upgrades available on the Boards. :-)

    We never use the dining plan or that promotion so I didn’t realize movies wasn’t normally included. Darn for the OP but hopefully they can still get something they want

    We stayed at the ASMovies in 2012 with the Free Dining Promo. I believe that was the last year that it was included in the general promo. We received an email with a PIN code for Free Dining for specific dates in 2013 and were able to reserve at the ASMovies with the PIN that year. Haven't seen it included since.

    Here is what we have observed this week:

    Broadway BLDG 8
    - The "Right Hand Half" is under renovation.....That is Rooms 1 - 24 (1st Floor 8401-8424, 2ND FlooJ

    Jazz BLDG 9
    - Entire BLDG is under renovation....they are installing drywall, so it is a few weeks away

    Calypso BLDG 10
    - Building looks completed, and the cleaning/punch crew was working there Wednesday. I'd imagine these are available soon, and some might already be being used

    Well the first building took around 70 days which is decently long. I’m hoping they’ve got the suites figured out and things will move quicker now
