Where is HOME? OR have you found it yet???
Interested to know
Do you ONLY stay at one you fell in love with and won't stay anywhere else
Are you trying different resorts, have a couple you love but trying them all till you decide on your "home" at Disney?
OR do you love them all and it doesn't matter as long as its Disney?

My home resort is POR.

I actually took a savings one year on the 4/3 deal; thinking I had all the amentities at SSR that were at POR. But I was wrong.

I forgot about the incredible staff; the lush landscaping; the food court; the lounge and entertainment.

The only common denominator was that I had boat transportation available at both resorts.

It is going to take a pretty big discount to get me to stay anywhere else.

Beach club #1
Wilderness Lodge #2
Port Orleans #3 (on a budget)
Bonnet Creek #4 (off site)

any of the pops or other cheap resorts NEVER! Motel 6's with disney charecters painted on the walls is not us.

We decide on a resort on what type of discount is offered to us. We do have our favorites or favorite "areas" of the resorts we stayed. For example We always had great room location when we stay at CBR & love the tropical overall feel of the resort but I am not the biggest fan of the food court. I enjoy the POP food court & room location has been just OK. We are returning to WDW in June 2014 & hoping to stay at POR. Another factor for us is that if we visit in June I want a resort that have the bus stops covered because of heat & rain storms. If we visit during a cooler season values are just as great. I wish I can take more trips to jump around to more resorts.:banana:

I've got to say after 45+ trips, it's been mostly deluxes... We've found our home... It's based on location and price....WL....

We base this on our favorite park where we will be spending the most time (MK) and we're empty nesters and in our 60's.... I could spend every day in the MK....

We've stayed at ASMo, CSR, CBR, SSR and offsite. I keep going back to the Coronado Springs. I love everything about it. I have great memories from all of the resorts, but when we stay anywhere else, my heart is always at CSR. I'll still keep trying others, though!

Have to say my daughter and I definitely prefer the monorail resorts!!! My son likes WL, POP and YC. My husband likes space so BLT 1bdrm/2bdrm for him. Us girls like monorail first and CL as a bonus. I really dont like to cook and truly enjoy the few times we have had club level! I have stayed at all except BC, BWI, and SS. Have to say which ever resort I am at staying at is then my favorite at that time. I love them all. However Poly would be perfect if they just get to it and put in the hot tub already!!!

Next mom n me girl trip is DD 18th bday staying CS Business class then moving to Poly CL and one night at AOA in mermaid. Yep it will be busy but cant afford Poly at Easter rates so.... do what you have to do.

I've stayed at almost every resort except for CBR and the All Stars. I own DVC and although BCV is my home resort, I've stayed in all of those except BLT.

My favorite overall is BWI, especially if I can stay at the Innkeepers Club. This resort has it all. Great location by my favorite park, the friendliest cast members, great decor, great room views, easy walking distance to most of my favorite restaurants and I even like the clown pool and the bar there !!!

I generally always go on Disney vacations with my fiance, so we like to move around and stay at new resorts, but our first trip together we were at pop. We always like to add one or two nights there to our stay.

I hope I agree....:)

We stayed at WL last Christmas and are going to try BC for our upcoming May trip. I keep thinking I should switch back to WL, but I figured we'll give it a try.

Our family can't decide between a few, in this order:

Fort Wilderness Cabins
Old Key West
All Star Music Family Suites

Price and discounts determine where we stay. Next trip we're trying Bonnet Creek for about 1/6 the price of the Boardwalk. We'll see how we feel about missing the Disney bubble.

My "Home" is Poly :cloud9: I love the monorail, the TS restaurants and QS. Bonus, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Kona Island Sushi Bar and Tambu lounge! The tropical feel, and tiki lit paths are paradise. Their is nothing better than sitting on the beach at any given time and seeing that castle. I have stayed at WL twice(before kids) and I LOVED it there too, but for my family(DS3 and DS8months) the monorail works well with 2 sleeping little ones in a double stroller. I have also stayed at the AKL(3Bedroom Grand Villa) and as beautiful as that room was, the resort was way to big for me...maybe it was the location of our room that made it feel that way, but the Poly holds my heart :love:

We like trying out all of the different resorts! So far we've stayed at GF, Contemporary, the Poly, and have a trip scheduled at the AKL for this December. We have really liked things about each of these resorts (had a major issue with our room at the poly, but it was most likely just something with our specific room and not the resort on the whole). But we haven't stayed anywhere we absolutely have to go back to. Our favorite was probably the MK view at the contemporary. Definitely want to try out one of the Epcot area resorts - what a neat area and how convenient!!

We honeymooned at WL and chose it because we like the theming and the location seemed neat. After having an awesome time there, we still weren't sure we could justify it on our second trip. After waiting five years to go back, we decided WL was the way to go for us again. During our second trip we spent a lot of time exploring other resorts and seeing what they had to offer, and our love for WL grew so much that we booked a bounce back trip there for next year because we love the location, the lake, and it just feels like "home".

We do agree that any Disney resort is special, and I don't think there is anywhere we wouldn't stay, we just might not choose to pay the price for some of them and might choose to upgrade from others. Besides our home at WL, if the deal were right we'd like to stay at POR or AKL sometime, and since we love Epcot staying near there has appeal too. We even like POP, but aren't sure about the Full beds.

Basically, we think we'd enjoy anything Disney but we have found our home to compare to. :thumbsup2
