1. Wilderness Lodge
2. Port Orleans French Quarter
3. Animal Kingdom Lodge
4. Port Orleans Riverside
5. Coronado Springs
6. Pop Century


Like most, these are of the resorts I have stayed at. Of all of them I would think Poly and the Beach Club would fit somewhere in them. I plan to give the BC a try next time around.

Based on the stays we have had so far....


1. Beach Club Villas (It's our DVC home!)

2. Beach Club (Honeymoon!!!)

3. Villas at Wilderness Lodge (Loved at how quiet and serene it was while so close to MK!)

4. Boardwalk Villas (Our 1st DVC stay, it set our minds at ease that we made the right decision to buy into DVC!)

5. Wilderness Lodge (Like staying in a big Lincoln Log Cabin!)

6. Port Orleans Riverside (Lovely theming, loved boat to DTD, hated being so far away from the parks!)

7. Coronado Springs (Loved it just as much as Riverside, ranked below simply beacuse you need to a bus to get anywhere around the world...)

8. Animal Kingdom Lodge (Great restaurants, but I doubt we'll stay there again...)

9. Pop Century (Brought me back to my childhood after seeing some of the displays, but the rooms were waaay too small and we had a tough time falling asleep even after a few pints at Raglan Road because of a sick child next door...)

AND I WILL STAY AT EVERY RESORT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't think it is absolutely necessary to actually have stayed in a resort to give it a ranking.

In talking to a lot of people, and from reading a lot of these threads, it is obvious that Many people love to roam around the grounds of various resorts.

I think it's fair to say that you can get a pretty good idea of what a resort will be like by seeing the pictures, watching the videos, talking to people about specifics of resorts, and by actually strolling the grounds.

It's basically how I figure out which resort I'm going to stay at next.

This is how we have selected some of the different resorts we have stayed at but I can't really make a judgement until I actually stay at one. I thought WL was really appealing when we visited and based on reports but my opinion dropped after I actually stayed there. I can rank them on which ones are more appealing to me or I can rank them based on my actual experiences; my opinion on the overall value could come into play as well. The original post starting this thread is pretty open-ended.

JimmyMcG--have you summarized anything yet?
