    Now that we own a villa on Orlando, I doubt whether we will be staying at many WDW resorts in the future [apart from the GF which is like home from home to us for a few days each time we visit].
    The only other resorts that we have stayed at are OKW and WL, apart from VB on a couple of occasions.

    I've only stayed at the Polynesian, I'd always wanted to stay there and was really disappointed with it when I did, it didn't live up to my expectations :shrug:

    gosh erm

    all star movies/music/sports (movies my fave)
    pop century
    POR/POFQ (love them both)
    Coronado springs
    Caribbean beach
    Animal kingdom lodge
    wilderness lodge
    contemporary
    Bay lake towers
    polynesian
    yacht club
    swan
    dolphin
    grand floridian

    I think the polynesian was the most disappointing. Once outside the lovely lobby, the rooms were very normal and unremarkable for the cost.

    All star movies though the cheapest provided such wonderful memories and atmosphere. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

    The wilderness lodge will always be my fave :yes:

    My fave for theming is animal kingdom lodge. For location is the contemporary

    The most disappointing for me too was the Polynesian, it was before the refurb and there was a smell of sewerage in the room.

    We stayed after the refurb and the smell of sewerage was one of our biggest complaints, not that anyone listened :shrug:

    All Star Movies
    Port Orleans Riverside (both the mansions and alligator bayou)
    Animal Kingdom Lodge Villas (both Kidani and Jambo)
    Boardwalk Villas

    Actually loved them all for different reasons and wouldn't hesitate to stay at any again.

    AKL is our home DVC resort so that is special for that reason and the fact that it is such a fantastic resort and so much to do without even leaving there!

    Boardwalk we loved too because it is a complete contrast to AKL and it's location is perfect, I love the buzzy atmosphere in the evening when it is all lit up as well :yes:

    We've stayed at OKW (our home resort)
    Beach Club
    Beach Club Villas
    Boardwalk Inn Villas
    Bay Lake Tower
    Pop Century
    All Star Sports and Music
    Polynesian
    Wilderness Lodge Villas
    Kidani Village (AKL Villas)
    Saratoga Springs Resort

    Our least favorite by far is the Boardwalk Villas. Our favorite? Well, for DVC it has to be OKW, although we really liked Kidani Village too. For resort? Beach Club all the way. LOVE that resort! :yes:

    All Star Music twice
    All Star Movies
    Pop Century
    Coronado Springs
    Port Orleans FQ

    Of the values we loved Music most and hated Pop. CSR was just OK but we wouldnt stay again and POFQ - wow! We just loved that hotel.

    My favorite is AKL, just dont like how far it is from MK

    I too felt disappointed by the Poly, could never justify what it costs to stay there with what you get!

    We've only stayed at the animal kingdom lodge and loved it.
    We are possibly staying on resort next year via my mum and dad's DVC, I think it's at Saratoga springs :confused:

    Guess it was the Disney Inn (now Shades of Green)
    Boardwalk (just after opening)
    Polynesian (not a lot of love in here for it....we got it as part of an upgrade from Coronado Springs one time. Guess for us it was pretty cool)
    PORFQ (loved it!)
    Caribbean Beach
    Animal Kingdom

    Have a few more to go right? What will the next one be?

    Inquiring minds want to know....by that I mean me...:tongue:
