4. POFQ (My favorite Mod)
5. POR (back when it was Dixie Landings)
6. ASMusic
7. ASMovies
8. Dolphin

All the values: Sports, Music, Movies, Pop
All the mods: CBR, CS, POFQ, POR

The deluxe resorts that we have stayed at include: Poly (Disneymoon 1975), WL, and AKL.

We joined DVC in 2005. Our home resort is Saratoga Springs. We have stayed there numerous times plus the Wilderness Lodge Villas, Old Key West, plus Vero Beach and Hilton Head.

I can't say that I have a favorite. My least favorite was Coronado Springs. Beautiful but not our cup of tea.

So far:

POFQ - our first ever on site stay and have stayed around 4/5 times - we love it
Coronado - enjoyed our stay here too, nowhere near as large as we had imagined
Grand Floridian (RPC) - very nice, but won't go back unless get a discount, way over-priced
Yacht Club (concierge and standard) - used to be my favourite deluxe, until I stayed at the Boardwalk!
Boardwalk (concierge and standard) - absolute favourite resort

Next stay I'm thinking of AKL for a complete change, have visited and keep saying one day I'll stay there!

1992/1994/1995/1997/1999/2001 - Offsite/POFQ * December 2004 - CSR, YC * December 2006 - YC CL * May 2007 - BWI * December 2007 - GF RPC, BWI CL * May 2009 - BWI CL *
May 2010 - BWI CL * November 2011 - BWI CL * December 2012 - BC CL * May 2014 - GF CL & WL CL *
