This is a tough one. It used to be a clear cut favorite. But since we started staying on points at the DVC's, it has changed.

Deluxe, in order of favorite to least favorite:

Old Key West/Animal Kingdom Lodge (too close to call a clear winner)
Boardwalk Villas
Beach Club


Coronado; we've stayed 10 times. We've never tried another moderate as they've never appealed to us


None; I just can't do them anymore.

Favorite- GF though BC is a very close second.
Least- Pop The pools are small and crowded. Plus our room door actually opened and hit the bed. It was just too small.

Pop seems to be the least favorite value. I liked All Star Music.

We haven't stayed in too many onsite resorts, but…

Value: Prefer ASMu over POP; ASMu seems smaller, easier to get around, less noisy- just preferred the atmosphere in general at ASMu.

Moderate: Liked both CSR and POFQ, for different reasons. I guess CSR gets the nod, but just barely.

DVC: Stayed at OKW and did not enjoy it. It seemed too much like every offsite Florida condo resort we've ever stayed in; nothing really special about it for us.

NOW I am trying to decide where to stay for DD's 21 birthday celebration. We are going during her fall break in October (11-15) 2014; she's talked for years of eating/drinking through Food and Wine Festival for her 21st! Trying to decide between BWV and AKV (will rent points for studio room for DH, DD, myself). Love BW and the location, especially for F&W, but AKL is our dream resort… savannah view, of course!!
Returned on 10/16/14 from the Most Magical 21st Birthday Celebration EVER!!

Favorite: Poly (pre construction) Beautiful views, quiet

Least favorite: WL - Had a BAD CLub Level experience with under-staffing and lack of maintenance. Even with a room change we had mal-functioning equipment. Lounge service was awful.

I don't eat onions-they squelch when you bite into them
I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

My favorite are the Port Orleans resorts. I find them to be the best bang for the buck.

1. Peaceful, relaxing, resort atmosphere.
2. Good food court
3. Boat to DTD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
4. Nice mid range price (I don't use a lot of the deluxe perks so paying for MOD fits use to price the best when I'm not doing a value stay.)

Least Favorite is Art of Animation

1. Noisy crowded hyper not relaxing at all (I've stayed at other values and like them better), and I'm not a fan of giant icon themeing and Ursula skeeved me out. LOL
2. AoA food court was okay but I didn't think it was better or worse than any other value quality wise, and it was a little more time consuming.
3. Worse bus service I've ever had but that is kind of the nature of bus service but with that number of people there should have been more buses/stops.
4. I don't mind value stays, and I've done a few but LM rooms are more than other values and it didn't seem worth it to me.
