    I've only stayed at 3...but my ranking would be

    Boardwalk Inn
    Yacht Club
    Polynesian


    I should say that the circumstances around my stays probably influenced my rankings.

    At Boardwalk, we stayed in a large suite on the Club level as someone else's guest.
    At Yacht Club, we stayed in a standard room on the club level
    At Poly, we stayed in a standard room (not club level).

    Okay...I've tabulated the results...and now the arguments begin!!! I've done two results. The first list is according to the average rank by those who responded. The second is based upon percentage of people who selected that resort as their number one pick (please note that the percentages won't add up to 100% since some people did not rate every particular resort).

    Average Rank:
    Polynesian - 2.18
    Wilderness Lodge - 3.03
    Animal Kingdom Lodge - 3.06
    Beach Club - 3.12
    Grand Floridian - 3.125
    Boardwalk - 3.185
    Old Key West - 3.2
    Yacht Club - 3.46
    Contemporary - 3.5
    Port Orleans FQ - 4.27
    Port Orleans Riverside - 4.45
    Art of Animation - 4.57
    Coronado Springs - 5.1
    Pop Century - 5.3
    Caribbean Beach - 5.7
    Swan/Dolphin - 5.8
    Saratoga Springs - 6
    Fort Wilderness - 6.5
    All Star Sports - 7
    All Star Movies - 7.3

    (I only received one response including Shades of Green ranking it at 7)

    Based on Percentage of Response ranking the resort as their number 1

    Polynesian - 42%
    Boardwalk - 37%
    Wilderness Lodge - 33%
    Beach Club - 27%
    Animal Kingdom Lodge - 27%
    Yacht Club - 20%
    Old Key West - 20%
    Fort Wilderness - 16%
    Grand Floridian - 12%
    Contemporary - 11%
    Port Orleans Riverside -10%
    Port Orleans FQ - 3%

    There's definitely some surprises if you ask me!!!

    My favorite is always the one I am currently staying at but I'll take a shot....

    1) AKV
    2) BCV
    3) WLV
    4) BLT
    5) OKW
    6) POFQ- if we hadn't stayed deluxe then joined DVC, would have probably always stayed here and been perfectly happy
    7) Dolphin
    8) CBR- never again!! Stay was fine, just absolutely hate this resort

    Next up split BWV/WL CL, so I am sure this list will change!

    My stays:

    1) Polynesian - Beach/Theme
    2) Wilderness Lodge - Food/Serenity
    3) Boardwalk Villas - Location/Balcony
    5) Dolphin - Love the design, 24 hour snacks, location
    6) Grand Floridian - Just wasn't for me when I was younger, giving it another shot this year
    7) Art of Animation - Liked the in-room theming a lot, but the walk from the bus to the LM rooms after a 9am-12am park day was killer.

    Looking forward to adding Yacht Club, All star sports, and Bay Lake Tower over the next year.

    1. POR
    2. AoA
    3. ASSports

    Loved them all. POR wins for resort even though room was better at AoA cause we had a family suite.
    Staying at Cont in January.
    Goal is to stay in each resort once in my life.

    I've tried this. It simply is impossible as most posters won't rank each resort.
