The resort is so small that you really won't be far from anything (as compared to the other moderate resorts). There's a map on the first page of http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2650040 that can help you decide what is most important.

We stayed in building 3 which was awesome and incredibly close, but it was a very small resort and everything really is close together. Have fun!

We stayed in building 2 and found it perfect! But you honestly won't find any building inconvenient!

I don't eat onions-they squelch when you bite into them
I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

Wow, this reminds me of September. We had storms and when the lights were just coming on and it was overcast it looks so like this.
