Stayed in Building 5 3rd floor before the refurbishment. There were ducks outside in the gardens every morning. It is a lovely very quiet resort. They used to give you Mardi Gras beads at the entrance. A kind CM gave my wife 20 for her 2nd grade class at the time. I don't know if they still do it, but there used to be a boat to Downtown Disney. Very romantic at night. You might also want to try the sunken hot tub at night, but watch for skeeters.

Contrary to some other posts, the bus service takes forever compared to the All-Stars because of stops at Dixie Landings, whatever it is called now, and I think DVC villas. However, ride to the Marketplace/Pleasure Island is short.
