Which resort really surprised you and exceeded your expectations? On the other end of the spectrum, which resort was a total disappointment?

For me, Port Orleans French Quarter just really surprised me. I knew we would enjoy it well enough, but I actually fell in love with the resort. Considering I am not a fan of exterior room entrances, I am really surprised with my desire to stay here again!

Major disappointment for me was Coronado Springs Resort. I even gave this one a second shot thinking it was just a fluke the first time...not so. It was very underwhelming both times...and I really, really tried to like it.

Surprise: FW Cabins
LOVED how charming/cute they were. Great atmosphere, nice & roomy, & just quaint. The only downside: the short beds!

Disappointment: The Boardwalk
The stairwells were FILTHY -- with trash, spilled beverages, etc. in them. sad And the room's condition showed excessive wear & tear. This was a "bucket list" place that I wanted to stay at for YEARS, so it really fell short on my expectations.

My disappointment was Boardwalk Villa's we only stayed there one night a few years ago, but it was way less than magic, we had a stopped up toilet and it took forever to get someone to come and fix it, just didn't do it for us!

The first trip to CSR was way better than we expected since all of our trips to the Poly, I think that half the price was what made it do appealing. That being said, I am so much more looking forward to POFQ this year than I was CSR last year!

For that matter, the last Poly trip was less than magical, just can not justify paying that much money to sleep and shower in a room when we can do the same for half the price and still have Queen size beds! grin

If you are not confused, then you are misinformed.

Back in 1999 I thought we'd really like the Poly, but none of us did. Dirty under the beds and furniture and musty rooms.

We were really disappointed with our Poly concierge stay. After having such at great experience with AKL concierge, the services/offerings seemed really lacking.

Conversely, I really enjoyed All Star Sports, which prior to staying at, had never really appealed to me.
