My favorite is GF, but the Poly comes in at a close second. I love to be next to the Magic Kingdom!

I picked Poly but AKL is a very close second. The thing that gives Poly the 'edge' for us is the monorail. *We have yet to stay at an Epcot resort...thinking of Beach Club for next year.*

Just have to say, I 100% agree about the transportation to and from Magic Kingdom and Epcot, but to the other parks and DTD.....

BWI-for reasons I always state on here. It is our home away from home. We love Club Level and the staff at the Innkeepers Club is the best!

AKL number 1 and Poly number 2. AKL where else can you have African animals on your own savannah and the culture is incredible, not to mention the exotic food.

I've never had the good fortune to stay at any deluxe, but my first choice would be the Poly. It would just be the ultimate Disney vacation to stay there!

AKL because it's the one that's almost a Disney park experience in and of itself.

We have only stayed at one deluxe resort, but we LOVE the WL. I would stay there every trip if it's in the budget. Although this next trip we are going to try and swing a MK view at the CR on the Atrium Club lvl b/c it is for our 15th wedding anniversary.

We love the BWI for its location and the ease with which you can access the boats to HS & Epcot.
