    We have only stayed at All Star Music and POR, so those would have to be my favorites as we enjoyed both of them. I would love to stay at Animal Kingdom and Grand Floridian.

      I tend to stay at values and my preferred value is All Star Music. I'm in no hurry to return to Port Orleans Riverside because when I stayed there the lighting at night was practically nonexistant and due to the landscaping blocking your view and no directional signs I spent the vast majority of the time I was there and not in my room getting lost. In fact I got so lost on my departure day that I ended up having to ask a cm how to get to the main building. For some unknown reason I really want to stay at Caribbean Beach but probably never will as I just can't justify the cost.

          I don’t have a never go back, but Saratoga Springs and Swan and Dolphin are probably my least favorites of the hotels I’ve tried. We’re going to try GFV this summer for the first time. Looking forward to that one.

                Our favourites are the Beach Club Villas and Animal Kingdom Lodge Villas.

                I'd like to stay at the Riviera Resort, as that will be open next time we go and I'd love to spend a couple of days in one of the lakefront cabins at Copper Creek at the Wilderness Lodge.

                We've stayed at all the DVC resorts and we honeymooned at Port Orleans. We haven't done any other moderate resorts or ever stayed at a value resort and, having been spoilt over the years by the DVC, we have no desire to do so.

                Enjoying some relaxation time on the Transatlantic cruise on the Disney Magic - I'm Cheryl and with my husband Mark, we love visiting Disney and exploring the world...

                  My least favorite was the 1 bedroom DVC at Grand Floridian....(I love the regular resort rooms.) It was far from coffee refill and a good walk to monorail boarding.
                  The room was beautiful and our view was of the monorail......not really bad but I like other places better.

                      We almost always stay value, so All-Star Movies is probably our favorite, but all of the All-Stars have appeal for us. We just like the fun vibe.

                      The only resort we HAVE stayed at outside the values is Coronado, and that's my never again. We hated almost everything about it.

                      Would love to try the other moderates, especially POR and CBR. Oh, also Art of Animation. Joel really wants to stay there next trip.

                        What happened with Coronado Springs? I am staying there for this trip coming up, but this will be my 2nd time, and at that time it was with my 2 boys- 2007. We liked it. Was it the theming?

                        It was really everything except the room itself, which we very much liked. Room location...boo! Service...boo! Food...boo! Theming...meh! Bus stop rudeness/aggressiveness...major boo! I absolutely could not believe how many things happened to us there that I just felt were unbelievable at WDW. No thanks. I’ll stay off property before I’ll go back to CSR. In a 3 day stay, I made 2 trips to the front desk to ask questions and bring up issues. Both conversations were polite, but no one offered solutions or apologies for our myriad issues.

                        I love Coronado Springs! We’ve stayed there several times and have never had any issues with anything. We had awesome room locations, very nice CM’s, and I thought the dining options were fine. I think the best part of Coronado Springs IS the theming. It’s a beautiful resort, especially at night with the lights and music. Looking forward to staying there again someday to see what it’s like with the new renovations.

                      Favorites:

                      The All Stars. We've stayed at Music and Sports and would stay at Movies if the other two aren't available for some reason

                      Would like to stay at (but never will unless I can hit the lottery and actually afford them):

                      The Contemporary only because I would really love being able to walk to the MK, not because of theming.
                      Animal Kingdom lodge in a Savannah room with a balocny so we could have sliding doors we could open and see the animals

                      Never again:

                      Fort Wilderness. It's just gotten way too big and spread out. Back when we stayed there, we could walk to Trails End and the marina and the buses that went to the MK were right there too. You didn't need to go out to the parking lot for them. Granted back then there was no Studios or AK either and I'm fairly certain the only two ways to get to Epcot were monorail or drive so hence no Epcot bus either (that I remember). Now you need to take a bus every where or rent a really expensive golf cart.

                          We've only stayed at Port Orleans Riverside, All Stars Music and the Ft Wilderness. Loved POR. Hated the All Stars.
                          Would never came in a tent at Ft Wilderness. I got bit by sand ticks and was sick for weeks after.

                          My dream place to stay is Wilderness Lodge.

                            Favorite resort For Us Hands Down Ft Wilderness. I have been a fan since my first trip in 1988. Stayed in the cabins and it was like having a basic suite in the other resorts. Today with our RV we have our own PRIVATE DVC accommodations that are certified Pet Friendly. Added bonus we have gotten to know a number of our fellow campers that tend to be there when we are so there is that too.
                            While we did stay at AKL one trip and loved the overall feel we hated our room. There was no room to walk around both beds took up all the space except the bathroom patio was small and if we both were out there one of us tended to have to get up and go inside if the other needed a head call or wanted a soda
