Just my opinion but I wouldn't base my resort choice on the location (as in if it's closest to MK). All resorts have transportation that take you to all the parks. I've stayed at Animal Kingdom Lodge which is furthest from MK but once you get on the bus it doesnt' seem that long. Pick a place based on your budget & your personal taste in style & theming. There are so many great ones! You may want to do a midline priced resort (moderate) & that way not so much of your money is going for room & you'll have more to spend on shopping or food or doing other activities. You really should research the resorts perhaps on this site & look at lots of pictures so you can get an idea. They all have wonderful pools too!
