there is not much different - between pref and garden view

pref view was close to food court/lagoon - not bus stop. getting close to the bus stop was standard view

here a map

see the food court is in the front of the resort - but most of the bus stops are in the back of the resort.

To be clear, is your entire reservation still in the preferred area and you had to change it to garden view? The preferred area is very close to the main building and to the South bus stop. The preferred area is in the AB section, in either buildings 14, 15, 18 or 27. Hope this helps.
