Opening webmap in ArcGIS Desktop displays all map layers, regardless of visibility settings in Webmap

When I open a webmap in ArcGIS Desktop from ArcGIS Online, it displays all 4 layers of my feature service as turned on, whereas I actually have them all turned off in the saved webmap in ArcGIS Online.... I'd like them off by default because they are large datasets and I also have a tiled version of the service in the map for quick visualization. If the feature service is automatically turned on as soon as the webmap is opened in ArcMap then it sort of defeats the purpose because the map is super slow to open. Am I missing something? I have 10.3.1. 


Semi related, I published the feature service in question with one of the 4 layers turned off by default. If I add just the feature service itself into ArcMap, all layers are turned on. This is not the case in ArcGIS Online, where the feature service visibility settings remain intact if I add the layer to a new webmap. Seems like this is an issue with the data moving from AGOL to ArcGIS Desktop. Thanks for any help!
