One of my favorite things about traveling to Disney World is the amazing range of hotels I end up staying in! My all time favorite is Disney's Polynesian Resort, but I've also fallen in love with the Wilderness Lodge, Animal Kingdom Lodge, and the Beach Club Villas. What's your favorite Disney World Resort?

I love to stay at the Boardwalk. It's within walking distance to EPCOT Center... and I absolutely love going to Jellyrolls at night. Those guys are amazing on the piaon. If you ever go, ask Christian to sing Jeff Buckley's "Hallelujah" - he sings it beautifully. And the really tall, really skinny guy does "Rainbow Connection" by Kermit so well. he sings in the kermit voice and sits on the piano pretending to be a puppet.

I love the whole Boardwalk area! I stayed right across the lake at the Beach Club in January, and being able to walk to Epcot within five minutes was a great perk! You can also walk to MGM, but it is a little bit longer of a walk- more like 15 minutes. Plus, the Boardwalk Bakery is full of yummy things!

Caribbean Beach Resort. My DH and I absolutely fell in love with this resort the first time we stayed there. I love that it is so spread out, you kinda feel like you are the only one there. I love the bright colors and calypso music playing all the time. I love the size of the rooms and the hidden courtyards. each village has it's own pool, so you don't have to go down to the main pool if you just want to take a quick dip. The beaches with the hammocks and watching EPCOT Illuminations from them. The food court has a wonderful selection and plenty of seating. Just love it all.

I also love the Polynesian as well. The atmosphere is unbelievable with the feeling of the islands. The pool area is great as well overlooking the beach area. I have never stayed there, but I will someday. On another note, the Contemporary Resort is one that is full of the nostalgic feelings that Disney World brings for me. I love the fact that the monorail goes right through the resort hotel and the view from the top floor is out of this world! And yet, I love Fort Wilderness. I grew up camping here and the surroundings are so amazing. What better way to wake up in Walt Disney World breathing in that wilderness air. They have so many activities as well that are great for kids. As you can notice, these are all some of the oldest hotels on property. It takes me back to my childhood and brings those awesome Disney memories to life every time I'm there.

The Port Orleans Riverside Resort is a great place to stay. It's affordable and in the middle of everything. If you stay there, make sure you take a day to enjoy the property. There is a lot to do on-site. When the All Star Resorts first opened they were a great place to stay. Haven't been there in a quite a few years, but heard they've gone down hill.

I've stayed at PO-Riverside a few times- I love it! I think it's a great value for the price, and it is so peaceful! My one complaint is that although the resort being so spread out is nice, and part of what makes it beautiful, sometimes that long walk feels REALLY long at the end of the day!

I've only stayed at one so far. The Carribean Beach Resort. It was really nice, and my friends and I enjoyed the stay. I would love to stay at the Polynesian resort next time I go to Disney.

Actually I loved Fort Wilderness the best. It's their camp ground resort. We camped there a few times with our camper and then later a rented RV. It was fantastic. They do have ones there you can rent but we haven't tried that. They really treat you great there. One thing I like is nightly they have a camp fire, sing-a-long and a movie. Of course it's a Disney movie but it was great to watch it. Of course I haven't been there in years but I loved going. I would love to do so again.
