I don’t want to interfere with @Jeff_AZ 's polling, so there will not be a poll in this thread. I prefer to keep things unscientific.
What is your favorite resort at WDW and what makes it the best? All reasons are valid and I probably won’t even try to tell you why you’re wrong. For reference, it might help to share what resorts you’ve stayed at.
I’ll start. I’ve only stayed at AoA, Swan and Dolphin (both), so my experience is limited. My favorite is the Swan. I LOVE the boardwalk area location. I’d be open to staying at the other Epcot resorts, but being able to book a room on points makes the price tough to beat (although it’s not as good a deal any more). I love being able to walk to 2 parks. Transportation is one of the biggest hassles at WDW. I love the waterfall/grotto pool. I like the Swan better than the Dolphin because it has queen beds instead of full size.
If the skyliner starts running early enough for rope dropping on EMH days, I might change to AoA or Pop for my favorite. I also prefer the value bus stops since there is a queue to make sure there are no line jumpers.
