How many Disney resorts have you stayed in?

How many Disney resorts have you stayed at and do you have a favorite? The total is 8 for me. I can't really choose a favorite because I loved different things about each one. Out of the ones listed, my favorites are the Dolphin, Poly, Pop and Coronado Springs.

Dolphin
Polynesian
Pop
Coronado Springs
All Star Movies
Dixie Landings (POR)
Ft. Wilderness cabin
Contemporary (tower & wing)

Poly, Contemporary (South Wing), Board Walk, Beach Club, FW Homes, Coronado Springs, Carribean Beach, Dixe Landings( PO-R), Port Orleans (PO-FQ), Sports, Music, Movies & Pop ..and the Swan.

Favorite Pool is the Beach Club... My overall favorite is the Poly.. but to be fair it was because each time I stayed there, it was concierge. My favorite mod is Dixie Landings, favorite value.... Sports. My least favorite is the Contemporary for Disney & Swan overall. Only way I would stay there again is if it were super cheap!

That's interesting that your favorite value is Sports, even over Pop. Any particular reason why? Was it just the theme you liked better or something else?

In sort of chronological order:
Poly - year the park opened! (and once since)
Tree Houses - what ARE they going to do with them?
LBV villas - torn down to make room for SSP
Fairway Villas - are they even there anymore?
Dolphin - for our son's wedding 11 years ago
GF - for my 50th Bday
YC = Very very nice
BC - OK
CS - Love it there!
WL - very nice but too dark!
AKL- a real favorite!!
CT - my daughter in law was running the Disney Marathon!
OKW - every yr plus nxt week!
Hilton - DDD
VBR - love it over at the Ocean
BWV - better than I thought
BCV - too far away
FW cabins - granddaughters favorite!

Also visited friends, at PO, CB, FW campsites. I think that is all.

6 by my count. There would be more but Shades of Green is such a great price for the size of the rooms, it's hard to resist.

My favorites are Grand Floridian and Port Orleans, French Quarter.

Port Orleans
Polynesian
Contemporary
Grand Floridian
All Star Sports
Pop Century

Our goal is try each one at least once. So I guess that Guarantees me at least 20 more trips or so....
