Favorite resort theme

Don't think about price, dining options, location, transportation options, room size, etc. Just think theme. What's your favorite resort theme?

I've never sayed at a Deluxe, but I know the Grand Floridian is the cream of the crop. I went there for lunch one time and the place is just gorgeous.

As for ones I've stayed at, I'd say Port Orleans. The reason why I love this place is because I loved New Orleans Square at Disneyland and staying there is almost like staying in New Orleans Square.

The transportation does stink quite a bit.

You guys make me want to try out Poly! I only hesitate because I have been to Hawaii before so not sure if it would feel fake to me, but I remember it being super large but beautiful when we went there a while back for dinner.
