It's the Poly for us. We have had great stays at every resort we've stayed at, but the Poly's tropical atmosphere is beautiful and you can't beat relaxing in a hammock on the beach watching the fireworks . And having a view the castle while swimming just adds to the magic .

Beach Club is our favorite because of its location. Wilderness Lodge is our favorite for the resort itself. It is gorgeous and I love the woodsy setting.

ETA: We have stayed at all the deluxe resorts except AKL. There is no question that BC and WL are the two winners for us.

Animal Kingdom Lodge for incredible theming. Beach Club for location. Poly for romantic atmosphere and convenience for MK ( important with small children).

All the GF lovers must be late sleepers. I can't believe it still does not have a single vote.

I didn't vote because there's no way I could choose only one. I like several different ones (BWI, WL, CR, GF) for different reasons. And I still need to try AKL....

I pesonally rank GF as my 2nd favorite just behind WL (especially at Christmas Time). I've actually really enjoyed all of the deluxes, so for me, each one may only be a fraction of a point better than the others.

I've stayed at all but Poly. My favorite by a big margin is BWI. Second would probably be a tie between AKV and GF RPC.
