    Oh that is so hard! Almost like saying which is your fav child!!
    My fav mod is POR, mansions.
    I'd have a hard time picking my fav deluxe. Each has something special to offer. We've stayed at WL, AKL, Poly & BC. I guess my Favs would be Poly & BC, but I love the others as well :confused3.
    This August we are trying YC & GF. Both 1st time stays.

    1. Poly
    2. and 3. tie between GF* and AKL

    * I would take a GF RPC vacation over any other, but the resort overall, assuming a "regular" room, is not my favorite.

    It just wasn't for us. We did not like the size...it is pretty large, and despite DH and I being two very healthy, active adults, we did not enjoy having to walk 10 minutes each way to/from the food court to fill a mug or grab a snack (with two tired kiddos in tow), especially after walking all day in the parks.

    We didn't like the internal buses, it felt like we were on the bus FOREVER.

    We had some mousekeeping/maintenance issues that we've never encountered at any other Disney resort. (mold/mildew) :scared:

    We also were there the same time as a BUNCH of cheerleading groups, so that didn't help...

    It is a pretty resort, and we were surprised to see the higher IllumiNations fireworks right outside of our door, but overall, we just didn't like it. We still had a great vacation, but CBR didn't really add anything to that. :flower3:

    1. Swan
    2. Yacht/Beach Club
    3. Contemporary

    For us, location is key. We also prefer that the resort and most of its amenities (i.e. restaurants, gift shops, gym, etc.) are under one roof.

    This is hard!

    1. BC/YC
    2. Poly
    3 - it's a tie between CR and POFQ. I like POFQ overall as a resort better, but CR for the location and the GC.
