  • Lack of theme in comparison to other Disney resorts
  • At times, bus system is shared with other resorts along the monorail
  • Garden view rooms are somewhat of a walk to get to monorail
  • Walking to Magic Kingdom day after day can get tiring (your only other option is to take the 15 minute monorail ride all the way around)
