My personal favorite is Turtle Pond water view but I always had a rental car. Quiet, nice views.

My least favorite that I've stayed in is building 28, the view is blocked by trees, which makes the room dark.

All buses stop last at the Hospitality House, so you can hop on any bus to get to the pool.
I booked as a regular guest and there wasn't an option for near hospitality house. Does 62 and 63 count as near hospitality house too? They seem even closer.

How often do the buses run through the resort? Will we be stuck waiting a long time in the middle of the day? The spot you mentioned looks nice on the map and I'm very tempted, but we will only have a car for a day and a half on the trip. I kind of like the idea of the room being blocked by trees, they absorb sound and would keep the patio cooler. I'm sure we will enjoy wherever we are.

62, 63, 64 are not in the "near hospitality house" category but they are often used for handicapped or medical requests since they are the only buildings with elevators. That's another thing to consider - the buildings are 2 or 3 stories with no elevators except those 3. You mentioned your MIL, you may want to request first floor.

You have 4 park busses, water parks & Downtown Disney, so even in the middle of the day busses should come frequently to get the hospitality house.

Oh, so they are the same buses as the park buses, We stayed at the SSR tree houses last time and it was an internal bus and then we had to switch at the main stop to catch the park buses. It was a pain so most of the time we walked. I don't want to tire out the little one before we hit the parks though, last time he was in a stroller.

Do you recall which section had the noisy road nearby? I'd like to avoid this one with young kids - thanks!

See this map:

The roads are on the left and the bottom. It's not really a specific section but buildings within the section.
