Haven't stayed in all of them yet but so far I have to say for different reasons its a tie between the cabins and POFQ

Wilderness Lodge...but I've only been to WDW during December so I loved the decorations at WL. We're planning on visiting this Feb. I'd like to stay at the Contemporary (I love modern interiors)......or maybe The Poly or CSR because it's more tropical and very different from the horrible winter weather of the Pacific Northwest.

The Grand Floridian will forever be my number one. I've loved it ever since I first saw it as a little girl and I got married and honeymooned there so it is special to me.

After that, I love the deluxes. I've stayed at AKL and the Poly and loved both.

I've only stayed at Grand Floridian and The Contemporary, and I think I liked both equally for different reasons! If I had to choose, I'd probably say Grand Floridian since it's just so pretty. I'm graduating high school in June, and I want to stay at either the Wilderness Lodge or the Poly. I hear great things about both.

Right now, it's a toss up between Poly and WL. We are staying at AKL for the first time in a few weeks so hopefully, I can add that to the list.

So glad to see people list BLT as their favorite because that is where we're staying this August. Grand villa with hMK view

I have stayed at POFQ and CBR, but it was over 15 years ago. I thought CBR was the most magical place though.

Toss up for me

For me it's between the Wilderness lodge and Beach club resort.

Ironically I'm not a big fan of BLT. true you can't beat the walk to Mk but the décor did nothing to float my boat. lol


I love the beach club resort. I love how at the end of the night when you're walking home from Epcot the ground sparklers with thousands of sparkly lights.

I love hearing the boats blow their whistles and sounds of the boardwalk seem to drift over.

I love how the lobby is constructed in such a way that you hear the background sounds of people talking and children laughing but it's never obnoxiously loud.

I love the walk over, early in the morning to the boardwalk bakery. the staff has just washed down the cement and ti's quiet except for the music piped through the speakers.

9 months before I'm back in my happy place.
