    Tree house/golf course villas - first trip to WDW and of course, sadly they no longer exist - Saratoga Springs there now....loved renting golf carts and using them to get to and from DTD (when Chef Mickey's was an awesome steak restaurant there)

    Dixie Landings - three times; now POR; my DS's favorite due to good memories

    POP - once (and never again we had such a bad experience there)

    OKW - once - really spacious, nice 2 BR villa but we thought the pool was "ordinary"

    AKL - many times in various accomodations - our favorite!!

    WL - 2BR villa - much smaller than the OKW villa; not one of our favorite trips to WDW - transportation was horrible, food court a joke. But, loved Whispering Canyon and Artist Point. Pool was really nice too.

    upcoming - first stay at CR; 1 BR suite; first split stay too (CR 2 nights; AKL 3 nights) Looking forward to our Tower Bay view (booked too late to get MK view) and the Tower lounge for viewing fireworks.

    We have stayed in these:

    Polynesian
    Contemporary
    Swan
    Dolphin
    Yacht Club
    Beach Club
    Wilderness Lodge
    Grand Floridian
    CSR
    CBR
    All Star Music
    POR

    Our favorite is the Polynesian. Followed closely by the Yacht and Beach Club. I'd say next in line is the Swan and Dolphin. We love being on the monorail line and the Epcot Resort area isn't chopped liver either.

    Out of the ones we haven't tried yet, I'd like to try the Boardwalk and AKL. But, I wouldn't want to stay at AKL for an entire trip, it would have to be a split stay. I think it's too far removed but I would like to try it for a few days, especially in concierge so we could do the Sunrise Safari.

    Port Orleans French Quarter
    Port Orleans Riverside
    Pop Century
    All Star Sports

    Hmmm...only 7 thought it would be more :rotfl:

    Grand Floridian was probably my favourite. It was so luxurious. Then POFQ would be a close second I think. We are plannig to stay at Corondo Springs next and of course Animal Kingdom is on our list.

    In no particular order:

    Port Orleans Riverside
    Port Orleans French Quarter
    All Star Music
    Contemporary
    Poly
    Beach club
    Coronado Springs

    Trying to pick a favorite is tough, but if forced to choose I would choose the Poly. Just because it is so darn easy to get wherever you need to go from there. And I love watching Wishes from the beach!:hippie:

    Least fav--the Beach Club. I know I'm in the minority, but it didn't do anything for me.

    I really oved the BWI, the pool slide was great, and I loved the large rooms.
    I also, really like AKL and watching the animals. In my opinion all these hotels have something special, its hard to pick just 1 favorite!!!

    In this order:
    ASMU/CR( N.Wing) split stay
    CBR
    DOLPHIN( tho technically not WDWowned)
    WL/(DOLPHIN 2nd visit split stay)
    POP/POLYNESIAN split stay


    So we have stayed at 7...top 3 preferences are Polynesian, Dolphin, CR, and as stated by others,,,all have reasons to be #1 at any given time but the size of the rooms at both The Polynesian and CR was awesome...especially moving over from a value, but really love the themeing of the values and their food courts, so I'll stay at any of them!
