Polynesian...all the way

Hands down it's the Polynesian for me. Aside from the unique themeing, you've got the monorail and boat transportation to the MK, plus monorail access to EPCOT within walking distance. And there is also that gorgeous pool you can swim in while having Cinderella's castle in clear view.

The Poly rocks!

Well having only stayed at AKL - I really could only vote that one BUT I ended up voting POLY because I believe that to be the ultimate resort for what I want from a vacation
Great Location
Great Dining options
Great Theming
Now if only it could have Great Pricing..

Absolutely the Beach Club for me. The proximity to Epcot is amazing, the pool is lots of fun, and love being so close to Boardwalk and Beaches & Cream. Perfect for me!

We voted for the Yacht Club, we stayed there on our honeymoon and loved it. The location is ideal. Walk to Epcot (a must during the food and wine festival!), a nice boat ride to DHS, and a short walk to the Boardwalk.

It seems that those of you that prefer Poly or CR do so for the monorail. We loved only being a short BOAT ride away from the MK!
That is the reason I didn't like the WL when we stayed there. We didn't think the boat ride was a short ride anywhere. Every time we got on we had to go to FT Wilderness even though we were the only ones in the boat and no one even loaded at FT W. I think the lobby of the WL is great and probably the best one out of all Disney resorts but the transportation there is a nightmare. Never again!

There is nothing better than eating breakfast on your balcony with your kids and watching the giraffes and zebras. So serene!

Poly! Too many things to mention in the pro column, but the most important one is location, location, location!
