Chalee94- cost is an issue for us too, but one can dream. Of the dvc resorts, we have stayed at OKW, HHI, SSR, and WL. I am hoping in the future to try BLT and have heard great things about BW. Really hoping to make it down in 2013 or 2014!!!

Our favorite DVC resorts are BCV and BLT due to both of their locations. We love walking to Epcot and taking a Friendship boat to DHS when we are staying at BCV, plus we all love SAB and the atmosphere there . BLT is our other favorite DVC resort because of the close proximity to MK and also being on the monorail line is a huge plus for us. Now we are planning a trip to VGC in June 2013 and to VWL in 2014 and both of these we haven't stayed in before so our favorites list will either stay the same or we will be adding a few more to it .

Hard to choose between AKV and BLT. Both great resorts for different reasons. BLT for its location and AKV for its theming.

No question it would be the Poly! If they do make a Poly DVC, I will definitely be buying in!

Hilton Head Island

We have also stayed at Animal Kingdom Lodge Kidani which we loved and just got back from SSR- Tree House Villas (our home resort). Of the three we love Hilton Head Island (even DW who is not a beach person) the most.

At WDW I would say I love SSR the most because of the DVC member golf clinics there, my DW would say the same resort because of the spa (that is why it is our home resort)
The kids would say AKV - Kidani

A lot depends on what we are doing that particular stay:
Resort only stay - AKL; BCV; OKW
Parks - BCV; BWV; VWL
Shopping/Going to other than WDW Parks/Last Minute Trip - AKL; OKW; SSR
Touring/Beach/Doing Something Different - VB; HH

I'm new enough to DVC that we haven't stayed anywhere... only Disney property we've even been to is the WL on our honeymoon 4 years ago. We're headed to Aulani in a few weeks, and I have to say I'm most excited about that. Trying out VGC in January, and if I get a World of Color view, I would be beside myself.

As for WDW, the very first place we are going is AKV Savanna View. I am certainly hoping to try them all some day, but seeing animals from my balcony is my highest priority!

We have stayed at all the WDW DVC resorts and almost all of the non DVC. I would pick BLT every time.

BCV is our favorite. We bought sight unseen, had never even seen the resort, just knew Epcot was the place we enjoy the most. As both my husband and I agree, our BCV points were the best thing we could have purchased. We do stay at OKW frequently, having stumbled onto it because of the lower point per stay factor. My family loves it there. We own SSR, and probably would have preferred owning at OKW. Though we did try out the Treehouse Villas this summer and they were nice. The Grand Floridian is our favorite non-DVC resort at WDW. Enough so that, we'll probably buy there as long as the cost doesn't border on ridiculous.

"Points asside" I would choose an AKV GV at Jambo. I want to have access to that pool table room!
