    My favorite resort is AKL. I'd live there if they'd let me. CR/BLT come in a close second.

    My least favorite is ASMo. Don't get me wrong, my kids loved it. We went there after going to CR and it was a tough adjustment. Had we gone there first, my opinion may be different.

    Favorite resorts are a tie between BW and AKL and the Poly.

    Least favorite resort is the Pop. Not a huge fan of any of the Values for that matter. Toured AOA and it would have to be my favorite value.

    Staying at CB for the first time this spring--interested to see how I like. I am a deluxe resort snob so I will see how it compares.

    Favorite would be a tie between the Yacht and Beach Club! Can't go wrong with the Epcot resorts :)

    Least favorite would be Pop. We didn't mind it when we stayed on college spring breaks, but we're not a fan of the layout of the resort or hanging around waiting for the buses to all of the parks anymore.

    The Poly is our favorite, but there are none that we wouldn't return to as we have loved every resort we've stayed at.

    Favorites are the Grand and AKV. Two different and beautiful resorts with amazing customer service.

    Least is WL.

    I didn't hate Poly but I didn't love it either. I really wish I could "click" with that resort the way others have. :blush:

    My favorite Deluxe is The Polynesian due to it's theming and proximity to transportation. My favorite moderate is Port Orleans Riverside... the Alligator Bayou section---I love the theming, the trees with the Spanish moss dripping from them, the themed pool and Piano Bob at River Roost. They also have a good food court. My favorite value is Pop Century, and we like staying in a preferred room in the 70's building, which is close to the food court, pool and parking lot, but you don't hear the noise from the pool or parking lot. My least favorite resort is probably Coronado Springs... mainly due to the fact that it is a convention hotel, so at times it's very difficult to find seats in the food court, also the food court is not Disney operated and charges a gratuity. My main reason is the mattresses on the beds the last 2 times we stayed there were super uncomfortable. It was the 1st time at Disney that I actually looked forward to going home.

    I have only stayed in POFQ, CR and will soon stay at BWI. However, each one is so different and offers their own unique amenities.

    At POFQ, we loved taking the boat to DTD. At CR, I really felt like I was at WDW when I walked out of my room each morning and saw the monorail. I look forward to staying at BWI to experience the convenience of taking a boat or walking to EPCOT and HS. My goal is to try them all!

    But really...it's not a fair comparison...

    My family also really enjoyed Coronado. Staying at AoA in May/June. Hope it lives up to the hype.

    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
    Polynesian
    Beach Club
    Contemporary

    Moderate:

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

    Value:

    None; I just can't do them anymore.
