Where2Golf says: 

Disney's Magnolia Golf Course: There's plenty to admire here at Disney's Magnolia Course, one of the undoubted stars of Walt Disney World Golf, and the longest of the Disney courses by some margin. These excellently manicured links are named after the abundance of fragrant blossoming magnolia trees that line many of the fairways; a wonderful sight, especially when the trees are in bloom.

The layout is delightfully natural, with no housing along the fairways, and just a touch of traffic in view on Floridian Way on the closing couple of holes. Trees line the good-width fairways, sometimes quite densely, other times more sparsely. Rolling greens and several water hazards play their respective parts in the array of golfing challenges posed by Joe Lee's engaging design.

The course features something approaching 100 bunkers, and 11 of the 18 holes are defended by water. The greens here are excellent to putt on, and generally elevated with slick run-offs that will carry your ball down and away from the putting surface. Deft chipping skills are needed to re-connect with the green.

MOST MEMORABLE HOLE: perhaps this should read 'Most Memorable Bunker'. In addition to a good size pond that guards the front of the par-3 6th green, there is also Disney World's most famous bunker - "the Mousetrap". No surprise that the bunker carries the unmistakable shape of a certain Disney mouse ... named Mickey.
