For sentimental reasons my husband loves Poly. For me, I love WL. We've also stayed at AKL and GF. We would really like to try BC next time though.

We've stayed at GF, Poly, CR and WL. We have a trip planned to AKL. Each of them have their pros. I love the atmosphere of the Poly and the GF. The CR is extremely convenient. WL is a great price for the location. We had dinner on our last trip at the AKL and fell in love with the decor and the animals.

So each of those is a favorite of ours for different reasons. We haven't stayed at the Poly in a long time, so unless we really fall in love with AKL, that will probably be out next stay. However, I'd love to try one of the Epcot resorts too.

Poly has been our favorite for about 10 years. You just can't beat the relaxing atmoshere and convenience of the monorail and walk to the TTC.

BUT...since our favorite parks are Epcot and DHS, we're staying at the YC this year. Hoping we like it as much as the Poly.

Which deluxe.....hmmmm....

We've stayed at AKL, GF, Poly, YC, and WL.

All CL stays, AKL and YC we were upgraded to suites

I LOVE GF, but that said, for overall theming and the grounds...it's between WL and Poly Poly has the wonderful castle view from the beach, and WL feels nice and secluded. CMs, well WL has the advantage over Poly.

So as long winded as that was...WL is my favorite!

We've stayed at the Grand Floridian, Polynesian, Beach Club and Yacht Club.
While we loved them all, in order of preference:

1. Beach Club
2. Yacht Club
3. Polynesian
4. Grand Floridian

We love SAB, love being able to walk or water taxi to both EPCOT and DHS. We love to walk over to EPCOT for dinner. One of the things that really puts BC to the top for us are the friendliest CMs in town!

We've stayed at the GF, the Poly, AkL, and WL. We love the GF the most. It is so beautiful and gracious. The CMs are amazing and you can't beat the location. Our second favorite is AKL. We love the savannah and the restaurants.
