Poly
WL
<gap>

Dolphin
BC
Treehouse Villas (would be #2 or #3 if less isolated)
POR


Didn't include non-WDW resorts here. If I did, I'd put Grand Californian and Disneyland Hotel in the gap, and Paradise Pier at the bottom (nothing wrong with it at all, I just prefer the others)

I look forward to adding AK Kidani to the list next year.

I stayed at the following:

1) Animal Kingdom Lodge

2) Polynesian Resort (it lost to AKL because I prefer their pool)

3) Port Orleans French Quarter ( because the resort does not have great restaurants)

But I have reservations for Coronado Springs this month and PO Riverside in april... So that might change everything!

AKL-Kidani
SSR
AKL-Jambo
BCV
PO-RS
CR
CBR

How I rank:

#1 - does the resort have giraffes?

#2 - room decor (AK and SSR are the nicest IMHO)

#3 - how fast can I get to Le Cava (I mean Epcot...yeah, that's what I meant to say!)

I will be staying at BW for the first time in April...really wanted to go back to Kidani (it's been awhile), but it will be Flower and Garden time. It will be great to walk over----repeatedly!!

I've only stayed at Mod's, so that is all I will rank.
We are going to try YC this time however, so I'll be interested in how it ranks.

MODS

1) POR Riverside

2) CSR

3) CBR

Here is how I rank the ones I have stayed at:

#1 The Poly
#2 The Contemporary
#3 POR
#4 POFQ
#5 CSR
#6 ASMu
#7 ASSp
#8 The Beach Club
#9 CBR

The only 2 I wouldn't be overly excited about staying at again are the Beach Club and CBR. The 2 only 2 things I really like about the Beach Club are the location, and SAB. And you really need to have a resort day in order to enjoy SAB. CBR just has too many bus stops, and an inferior food court.
