Favorite Monorail Resort?

Which of the 3 Monorail Resorts is your Favorite? Contemporary, Grand Floridian or the Polynesian Village? I love the Contemporary. The Mary Blair murals & retro modern feel is so cool!

Contemporary just for Chef Mickey's!!!

All my life, the Contemporary was one of my dream hotels. Last year, we got a chance to stay there. I was sorely disappointed with our room. There is nothing in the rooms that is distinctly Disney other than the Disney channel. The Wave... is a good restaurant, and Chef Mickey's is delightful, but I found that the Contempo Cafe was lacking - especially in the theming.

The Grand Floridian has an absolutely tremendous. The non-DVC rooms are a little stale, but the DVC rooms are absolutely beautiful. Many of the restaurants here are well known, though a couple (Citricos and Narcoose's) are a little overrated. 1900 Park Fare is one of my two favorite character meals and Victoria & Albert's has been rated as one of the best restaurants in the world.

However, my vote goes to the Polynesian. I love the Tiki theming of the resort, it has my other favorite character meals at 'Ohana with Lilo & Stitch. It also has the Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show and some great quick service restaurants. I love the view from the beach and the new DVC bungalows make me *squee*. I also like that the vibe is very laid back. Contemporary feels hurried and Grand Floridian feels stuffy. I know that the Poly is not for everyone, but someday I will get to stay here. :)
My vote is the Poly! It's been tough with construction going on this past year, but excited about the updates.

Just got back from the Polynesian; have done all 3. This is easily the best of the 3.
Incidentally; we are going to be staying at the Grand Floridian in November...the Christmas atmosphere there is really amazing. Probably wouldn't feel quite as stuffy for you Mike in that setting, but I do understand what you mean. We were expecting more for what is considered their flagship.
La la loved the Poly. GF so beautiful but seems to get the worst transportation
