This is a hard one for me to choose. I like Wilderness Lodge during the holiday season, the Beach Club for the proximity and quick walk to EPCOT, Port Orleans French Quarter when I need a moderate and the Grand Floridian for the monorail.

Overall, POFQ is my favorite moderate and the Wilderness Lodge is my favorite Deluxe.

We always choose the pop. It's affordable to us, and is less crowded on the bus then all stars

I chose the Poly. Its location is perfect for my goals at WDW. And the views are spectacular. But what I love the most is the flora and landscaping.

It's Wilderness Lodge for me all the way. I have liked every resort I've stayed at (although OKW was a little boring and out of the loop), but WL hasn't been beat by anything before or since for me. The atmosphere of the resort is the best I've experienced. I'd love for it to be on the Monorail loop, but it's not too far out of the way to make much of a difference for me.

Choosing from these (non-DVC :shock: :o ) resorts I'd go with Yacht Club because I like the nautical theme, the pool and the location can't be beat (except maybe by the Beach Club).

If OKW was on there it might have gotten the vote because they have the best room layout on property IMO, and it feels completely isolated from the rest of WDW... like a tropical island.

Wow... that would be a toss-up between two completely different resorts. :)

Well we only stayed at POP Century so I can't say about the others. We did like it though, it was small, but to sleep and shower it was fine.

Now, if I could choose...it would be a toss up, WL and Poly....love both themes.

I've stayed at many resorts thanks to friends who like to try different ones, and I've enjoyed them all. But, I've been completely crazy about the Contemporary. Five times I've stayed there and feel like I would live there if I could. It feels like a city to me, with the monorail constantly flowing through, it's like another world in there.

I won't vote until I actually get to go to all of the resorts. I can say right now I love Coronado Springs, but that could change quickly if I ever get to stay in the Contemporary.

Boardwalk for location and family comfort (only because of DVC).
Walk to Epcot/DHS and easily monorail to MK.

Non-DVC I'd say Contemporary, favorite hotel on property.

I have done value and deluxe (mostly Beach Club) but I hear good things about Port Orleans for a moderate.
No one's gloomy or complaining while the flatware's entertaining.

Polynesian Resort. The theming is best, the music is great, it has a great view of Magic Kingdom, and lets not forget the food *drools*
