  1. Our family favorite WAS Contemporary. Before the time share tower took out the North Garden wing, you couldn’t find a better location for a family with young kids to stay. Nice walk from the room to MK in the morning and then later in the day when everyone was tired, leave the kiddos in their stroller and roll onto the monorail for a super quick ride back to the Contemporary on the resort line. Now my grandkids love AK with savanna view, but the incredibly long walks back to the resort lobby can be brutal. All this said, our kids loved AllStars for the bigger than life decor and I loved the $58 per night rooms that could be had in the mid 90’s. There isn’t any “wrong” choices to be made when it comes to Disney resorts.

  2. I disagree with several of these. No way Contemporary and Yacht Club are above Animal Kingdom Lodge. An the number 1 choice for a Disney Resort is not even a Disney resort?
