I ended up spending first 5 days on the bunny hill until I felt comfortable: I could link turns and traverse with easy. That was my first day of actually having a real fun time snowboarding. A feeling of control is awesome.
That said an easy green is so much better than the darn bunny hill. Grabbing and holding an edge on the slope is much easier and feels much safer.
I only wish I had bought a shorter board mine is too long for me. Le sigh.
