Favorite resort if $ was the same?

I know cost is a big factor in a resort choice. But if they all were the same price, what would be your choice?

Poly for me
Second choice would be WL or YC

Either a BW Villa (because of all the space and the proximity to Epcot and DHS) or AKL Arusha View (for the animals and the look of the resort).

I'd probably go back to BC for the Epcot/DHS access. It would be fun to do a Contemporary Tower Theme Park View once, though.

Contemporary Resort tower either side. I was a little kid when it was built and I've always been a huge fan of it and the monorail. CR and monorail are as much Disney to me as Cinderella's Castle.

Contemporary theme park view, higher floor. Unless its during Food and Wine, then BC!

Probably Boardwalk because of it's proximity to Epcot and DHS. Being able to walk to either is great. Going on the theme of the resort only, Poly would be my favorite.

Poly for our overall favorite, with GF RPC running a very close second .
