What's your favorite Disney resort and why?

I've stayed at POR, GF, AKL, OKW, and at the Poly. I'm about to try RGR at POR, which is really exciting! But our family favorite is definitely the Poly, just because of the atmosphere and tropical feel of it (not to mention the volcano slide!)

It's not technically a disney hotel but my favorite is the Swan&Dolphin. The location is great. You can walk or take the boat to either EPCOT or Hollywood Studios. Also I loved walking down to the boardwalk for breakfast or late night snack. I love how the hotel is very modern and classy. Great theming. Also they have nice pools, basketball hoops, and really nice fitness centers.

My favorite Disney Resort is the Contemporary. I've stayed there a few times and its awesome. Great view of Magic Kingdom, nice pools, bay lake is right there plus it has the famous theming.

My favorite disney resort has to be Aulani, because its really well-designed from an architectural standpoint. Moreover, the beach and pool was very nice and relaxing.

However, when it comes to my favorite Disney Resort within theme park property... That goes to The Yacht & Beach Club due to the location, overall aspects, and the fact that its short walk away from Epcot (via World Showcase entrance).

I have never stayed here, but just dinner, but my favorite resort is The Grand Floridan. It is just SO pretty and I like how close it is to Magic Kingdom. The Boardwalk would be a close second. I have stayed at The Grand Californian at Disneyland (Best hotel at Disneyland, for sure. The entry into California Adventure is awesome.), Wilderness Lodge (I loved it, just not my favorite), French Quarter (I don't remember it, I was five.), and Caribbean Beach. (I enjoy this resort. This is my favorite moderate. I love the ground, theme, and central location.)

Probably The Boardwalk because it is nice and beautiful. The shows at night are amazing and funny.

Wilderness Lodge for it's theming, I'd love to stay there. Although I'd love to try all the hotels. Of the ones we've stayed at I actually really love All Star Movies, I'm all for the bold colours and in your face designs. Our family has never been one for luxuries so the room size/motel layout really doesn't influence me

For me it's a tossup between Animal Kingdom Lodge and Beach Club. AKL because of the gorgeousness and the beautiful rooms. Beach Club because of the proximity to Epcot and the view.

I'm going to say Port Orleans Riverside (POR) because that's where we've usually stayed ever since I was little and it has a really relaxed, quiet, and laid back feeling. It's a good feeling to have when you're on vacation.
If you need me, I'll be in my own little world. Walt Disney World.

My favourite has to be Pop Century. I've stayed there so many times it's pretty much a second home. I just love all the colors and how it brightens up any day!

I really like AKL. We'll have our first BLT stay in Sept. It remains to be seen if we'll like BLT better than AKL. (We own at both resorts.)

We've stayed at POR, ASMu, GF, SSR, AKV-Kidani & AKV-Jambo. Of all these, I liked Kidani the best.
