1. Poly
2. and 3. tie between GF* and AKL

* I would take a GF RPC vacation over any other, but the resort overall, assuming a "regular" room, is not my favorite.

I feel it's only right to rank the resorts we've actually stayed at.

1. BC
2. CBR
3. POR
5. All Star Sports

Resorts never to return to:

Resorts I have no interest in:

The rest of the values

I don't eat onions-they squelch when you bite into them
I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

Of the places I've actually stayed:

Port Orleans French Quarter (best combo of price/location/resort theme-atmoshere boat to DTD)

Beach Club (best atmosphere, great location, loved the theme)

All Star Music (best price per night and the least over the top themed of the values which is a plus for me)

Art of Animation (better price than Mod but I didn't like the over the top giant icon theme/atmosphere)

Places I'd like to stay:

Wilderness Lodge (grew up camping and loved statepark/lodge theme, boat to MK)

Port Orleans Riverside (love the look of the place)

Poly (location, monorail and theme and to be honest Kona Cafe was faboo!)

Animal Kingdom Lodge (ANIMALS off your balcony)

My favorites in order -so far!- would be:

1 - AKL-Jambo
2 - AKL-Kidani
3 - Wilderness Lodge

Of the others (which would be, at this point, PC, CS, Swan, POR, OKW, FW), the only ones I probably wouldn't return to would be Swan, because it wasn't "Disney" for us, and I refuse to camp in the summer again!!! We tent-camp, so while I'd definitely go back to FW, it would only work if it wasn't so crazy hot!
