What is your favorite resort?

Just curious, what is your favorite resort? Our family's favorite is the Boardwalk Villas. We are DVC members and BWV is our home resort. We love the pool and location and the fun entertainment on the Boardwalk at night. We also love the Beach Club, Villas at Wilderness Lodge, and Jambo House Villas at AKL.

What about you all?

I love Port Orleans Riverside...just love the lush landscaping and how quiet and relaxing it feels after a long day at the parks! Also, love Wilderness Lodge...just can't beat the rocking chairs by the fireplace.

Our favorite is CR , because of it's location to MK and the great views. Watching the fireworks from the balcony and being able to look out and see MK is so special.

We are staying at AKL for the first time in August. So excited !!!

I actually love POP . Weird I know. We love everything about it. We are thinking of trying CBR this trip. Just not sure we want to take the plunge. We have stayed at many diffrent resorts. I would love to stay at the AKL but I don't see that happening anytime soon.

Many Trips the past 7 years at pop with free dining!

You know its funny, our last two vacations have been at the BCVs because we wanted the space, liked the location, and loved the pool, particularly for our toddler. That said, my favorite resort, just total theming/atmosphere, is the WL. Next time we're going to the WLV

We love CBR! Someday I would love to try AKL and Wilderness Lodge but I can't ever get the family to commit to anything but CBR.

We love all of the resorts we've stayed at, but the Poly would be our favorite, with the GF running a close second . We love the tropical atmosphere and being close to MK and it's awesome being able to relax on the beach while watching the fireworks .

My favorite resort is the GF, with the Poly right there with it. I cannot pick between the two. The GF is so elegant, serene, and the service is tops. The Poly makes me feel like I am really in Polynesia with the lush foliage, tropical smells, and I love the restaurants there!
