My favorite is always the one I am currently staying at but I'll take a shot....

1) AKV
2) BCV
3) WLV
4) BLT
5) OKW
6) POFQ- if we hadn't stayed deluxe then joined DVC, would have probably always stayed here and been perfectly happy
7) Dolphin
8) CBR- never again!! Stay was fine, just absolutely hate this resort

Next up split BWV/WL CL, so I am sure this list will change!

My stays:

1) Polynesian - Beach/Theme
2) Wilderness Lodge - Food/Serenity
3) Boardwalk Villas - Location/Balcony
5) Dolphin - Love the design, 24 hour snacks, location
6) Grand Floridian - Just wasn't for me when I was younger, giving it another shot this year
7) Art of Animation - Liked the in-room theming a lot, but the walk from the bus to the LM rooms after a 9am-12am park day was killer.

Looking forward to adding Yacht Club, All star sports, and Bay Lake Tower over the next year.

1. POR
2. AoA
3. ASSports

Loved them all. POR wins for resort even though room was better at AoA cause we had a family suite.
Staying at Cont in January.
Goal is to stay in each resort once in my life.

I've tried this. It simply is impossible as most posters won't rank each resort.

1. AKL Jambo- my favorite by far

2. BWV- home! Can't beat the location.

3. BLT-love being so close to monorail, TOTW, and lake or theme park views

4. WLV-enjoyed it, but not as much as the three above.

5. SSR- just doesn't have enough magic for me.
