Of the ones we've experienced:
1) Boardwalk Inn
3) AKL (too remote - likely will not return)
4) All Stars Movies (would return only if every other hotel at WDW was booked)
We stayed at CR back at the very beginning so I don't think it's fair to rank it now since it's been 40+ years but I very much want to find a way to try it again (was all booked up for my next trip.. )
Same thing with the Swan (too long since we've been there.)
I have to say that the start of this thread (and the room only discount that finally came out a few weeks ago) swayed me to make a reservation at WL for our trip this coming February - I changed from the Dolphin where I had a AAA discount but I wanted to be on property for the Magical Express, magic bands, etc.
We are now staying at the Beach Club as 2 more kids are going so we are now over the limit for WL. I'm sorry we won't experience the WL this time, but am keeping it at the top of my list along with the Contemporary for the next trip...
February 2014 - Polynesian
December 2009 - BWI
June 2007 - AKL
November 2003 - Polynesian
October 2000 - ASMo
March 1990 - Swan
Summer 1972 - Contemporary

WL and AKL are upcoming, so I'll see where they may fall in the mix. My #1 and #2 choices are absolutely certain. The rest could all be #3, except POFQ is last only because I love a balcony in the morning, or at night, when everyone else in asleep.

Based on the resorts we've stayed at:
3. AKL - would have ranked much higher if not so remote/reliant on busses
6. SSR - probably wouldn't stay here again
163. AS Music (really will never stay here again....)
Would love to try BW, YC, and CR - maybe someday....

We have only stayed at these 2 resorts for our past 5 visits:
2. Wilderness Lodge
My family would rate them the opposite, but I am a Poly girl all the way.
