    I was wondering if anyone had 1) stayed at all (or most) of the WDW resorts, and 2) which was their favorite? How do they compare?

    I'm just curious. I've only stayed at 3 myself, but it would be interesting to hear from those who have actual experience with all of the resorts which one they'd pick and why.

    Maybe, several decades from now, I'll be able to answer my own question!

    Have not stayed at CBR, CSR or GF but will stay at GF this Jan. We dont count the Swan and Dolphin as really being Disney hotels so that means that we have 2 that we have not stayed in. Now if you count DVC then we still need to stay in BW. Have AKV, BCV, SSR, VWL and OKV ressies all taking place in the next 6 months.:banana:

    Not all (yet!) - for me:

    Animal Kingdom Lodge
    Beach Club
    Caribbean Beach Resort
    Contemporary
    Coronado Springs
    Dixie Landings (now Port Orleans Riverside)
    Grand Floridian
    Saratoga Springs
    Wilderness Lodge
    Yacht Club

    And Shades of Green, which techinically isn't a Disney Resort, but it is onsite.:)

    I have stayed at all of them - from a tent at Ft. Wilderness to the Grand Floridian Main Building Concierge.

    I have different faves for each category that are strictly my opinion based on multiple stays:

    Value - Pop Century
    Moderate - Port Orleans (French Quarter)
    Deluxe - Polynesian
    DVC - Old Key West
    Favorite Concierge - Beach Club although the Contemporary runs a close second

    My first on property stay was in 1980 in a tent at Ft. Wilderness - my most recent was July 2007 in a 2 BR at OKW.

    Least Fave: Contemporary, BWI

    Moderate

    Least Fave: POFQ

    Value - only stayed at All Stars, didn't care for them.

    I have 3 left to try also: Movies, Ft Wilderness and Grand Floridian.

    My favorites are: AKL, Poly, YC & BC. :cloud9:

    I can't stay at the Values anymore when there's more than 2 of us in the room. Those double beds and the smaller room size make it too crowded for me!

    Have stayed in all by GF, Boardwalk and SSR. I would say my favorite is Poly but we tend to rotate the resorts, always going to a different one or two each trip. So actually my favorite one is the one I have been to the longest time ago.
