    Lets see:

    Wilderness Lodge- LOVE the decor and feeling of visiting someplace so different from home. I'm a Florida native and so many of the other resorts feel a lot like where I already live.

    Old Key West- Was really nice for a summer time trip. Loved that they felt like individual condos instead of hotel rooms.

    All Star Sports- Good enough for me considering the value price. Stayed there for a marathon with a friend and we're there again as a family in a few weeks. My DH is really cheap so it was a value resort or the Red Roof Inn. So I can't really complain much. :goodvibes

    It seems like there might be at least one more but I would have been a kid and therefore I don't remember.

    Caribbean Beach- 2007
    Port Orleans Riverside September free dining 2009
    Wilderness Lodge Resort forget when?? but I know we stayed there
    Wilderness Lodge Villas Christmas 2007

    ... and soon to be AKL Jambo House Villas (1-bedroom club level)

    Wow- so 7 hotels. 8 if you count the new villa at Jambo House, which is very much so different than the typical AKL deluxe room.

    I've stayed in "Dixie Landings" (That was way back when in 1993 or so), The Boardwalk, Saratoga Springs, All Star Music, Yacht Club, and The Wilderness Lodge.

    I loved them all! I have to admit, Saratoga Springs was lovely, but I found it to be kind of boring? The theme was very pretty, but I guess I'm the type of person who likes the wild themes, like the Wilderness Lodge or AKL. I loved the woodsy outdoor feeling I got from the WL. I had a really great spacious room, with a pool side view, which was nice. I've stayed at the BWV for the majority of my WDW visits and it just feels like home. And you can NOT beat the location. I also loved the Yacht Club. We had a studio, and it had enough room to fit my family of 5. And the pool was AMAZING. I'm not a big pool person, but I liked this pool because it was huge, and you don't feel crowded like in other resort pools. And once again, the location was amazing. I stayed At ASMu for a band and choir trip, and it was pretty cool. The bathroom was a little iffy, and the room was a little tight, but for the amount of time we actually spent in the room, I don't have much to complain about it. But a lot of kids got their PSPs and iPods stolen from the luggage people :confused3. But Disney reimbursed some of the kids who had more expensive things stolen. And I remember little to nothing about "Dixie Landings" because I was about 2 years old at the time :-)

    Wow to all the previous posters! With my Disney family now, we've only stayed in the Contemporary (several times), the Wilderness Lodge (once), and the Grand Floridian (for my parent's 50th anniversary and THEIR treat). We will be staying at the BLT this coming trip. I like the Contemporary best because of it's location to the Magic Kingdom and access to the monorail. I imagine Bay Lake will take it's place. As a child, I also stayed at the Wilderness cabins and the Polynesian but I really don't remember the latter.

    Beach Club (2 times)
    Yacht Club (4 times)
    Polynesian (4 times)
    Grand Floridian (5 times)

    Buena Vista Palace and Spa (1 night before "Disney" vacation)
    Swan (1 night)

    We love YC/BC, really like the Polynesian, and used to love the Grand Floridian. Our last few trips to the GF weren't so magical so we're sticking with YC/BC and Poly for awhile.

    Buena Vista Palace was really nice. We drove this trip and didn't get into Orlando until around 3 in the afternoon. We had decided to just swim and relax that day and get up bright and early to check into BC. It was very nice and we walked across the street to have dinner at RFC. It was a nice start to our vacation.

    We stayed at BC for two weeks and stayed at the Swan on the 15th night because we got a really good deal and we would be leaving by 6 am the next day to drive to Hilton Head to start our second leg of our vacation. Wow the beds were amazing! Just the thing we need before our 6 hour drive to Hilton Head.

    Easier to say where I have not stayed:

    Yacht Club (although we had our wedding there)
    Pop Century - probably won't stay there
    All Star Movies - probably won't stay there
    Swan - doubtful we'll stay there
    Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort - some day probably

    Knocking out Disneyland Hotel and Grand Californian this November!!!
