Horses for courses, really. We like Magnolia Bend - it's got two smaller quiet pools in the area, but not too far from the main pool. Others like Alligator Bayou, but I've never been on that side.

Check out where the bus depots are (if you're planning on using the bus, obviously) and see what the proximity is like compared to the food court, etc. It depends what's important to your needs at the end of the day. They're all really nice - I've never stayed anywhere else on property, except next May when we're going to POFQ, just for a change.

We just stayed in building 85 in Magnolia bend and it was perfect. A 5 minute walk to reception and the food court, a quiet pool next door and a bus stop out back. I much prefer the style and setting of the mansion buildings to the AB ones.

We were first allocated a room at the back of nowhere in AB (maybe building 35?), Inpersoanlly didnt like it, it felt remote and overgrown, so we went back and asked for something more central. They put us in Magnolia 85, right at the front and it was perfect.
