- The buildings at this resort all look the same and aren’t labeled very clearly, so make sure you grab a resort map or pull one up on your phone via the My Disney Experience app!
- There are individual bus depots located around the resort, so you do NOT have to walk all the way to the front lobby to catch a bus, which is great! (these are also marked on the resort maps!)
- Resort rooms do open to outside at this location, keep that in mind.
- Bathrooms feature a double vanity sink which we always LOVE to see!
