What is your favorite Disney Resort as a teen and why?
The Polynesian, it's so pretty!! I love the beach, and the lobby is beautiful. I honestly love all the monorail loop resorts... but if I had to pick one, it'd be the Polynesian.
My favorite is Animal Kingdom Lodge. While it's not in the Resort Loop, you can't pass up seeing the animals right outside your balcony. The lobby is so beautiful and the entire resort gives off one of the best feeling in the world.
When I was 15, it was the Grand Floridian! I felt so fancy there, and loved the closeness to Magic Kingdom.
I have only been to the Swan & Dolphin resorts, but I love them! The boardwalk is near by and there are boats to both Epcot and Hollywood Studios. If you were planning on staying at the property for the day though, I would not necessarily suggest it, but you can always go right to the Beach & Yacht club nearby which has an amazing pool area!
This is a tough one for me! I have several favorites, in each range of categories:
POP Century Resort: I like watching how things have changed.
Boardwalk Resort: Who can resist the fun, boardwalk atmosphere here?!
Coronado Springs: For what it is, it is awesome!
Contemporary Resort; Beautiful Property!
Port Orleans Riverside, because it's just so immersive and beautiful.
While I didn't get to go to WDW until I was an adult, I was in Jr. High when WDW opened, I was always a technophile, and after watching the promos and Grand Opening, I had always wanted to stay in the original Contemporary Tower, on the side facing the park. On my first two Disney trips, I got my wish, staying on the 11th floor of the Contemporary in 1991 and 1992, and on that second trip, buying in to DVC OKW. OKW has been my favorite DVC resort ever since, but I do still have very fonds memories of the Contemporary. That was before Chef Mickey's was relocated (it was still at Disney Village), and that area on the concourse was occupied by the Concourse Steakhouse. I also remember the Broadway at the Top dinner show, where California Grill is now located.
My favorite is the Beach and Yacht Club Resorts! The pool is amazing and the resorts are so peaceful. I love Beaches and Cream & absolutely adore seeing the Boardwalk lit up at night.
Coronado Springs! I love the Mexican theming, as well as the hammocks down on the beach and all the pretty string lights at night. Plus, being a bit of a history geek, I appreciate the giant Mayan temple at the pool. All that being said, the renovation is giving me major anxiety
Luckily, if the resort loses its luster for me after I visit post-reno (I'm staying there on my next trip), I have a lot of other favorites too. I've always wanted to visit NOLA, so of course I love Port Orleans (both parts). When my family owned DVC, our home was Bay Lake Tower, so I have a soft spot for that (and the Contemporary). I adore the theming of the Poly, of course (who doesn't), and I have a lot of good memories at Beach Club (it helps that I'm a big fan of the beach).
I also really like Art of Animation b/c I hope to someday become an animator myself
Polynesian. It's beautiful, peaceful, smells good, and is right next to my favorite park. You really do feel like you're in one big family as soon as you step in and to be able to see Space Mountain and Cindy's castle every morning is amazing.
