OKay the reason that this thread is here instead in Hotel Reviews is because this is more about the design and look of the Disney resorts in WDW than it is about the services and amenities. (If you really think it should be there though, fine)
But I was just wondering what your thoughts are about the theming and design of the WDW Resorts. Which themes are your favorites and which ones do you not like?
I love the Port Orleans Resort designs of both sections. Absolutely gorgeous and makes you feel like you really are in the bayou. Though sometimes I wonder if it is a bit too overthemed...especially since it's a moderate resort. It's kinda weird to me how the moderate resorts are designed because most of them are only two stories tall and they're all divided into numerous small buildings. This is in comparison to the deluxe resorts where it's just two or three massive buildings with numerous stories.
Also love the Animal Kingdom Lodge theming.
As far as unpopular themings, I'd go with the Value Resorts. Yes I know the big giant statues are supposed to appeal to little kids and all but to me it's way too tacky even for a Disney Resort. Who's to say that a child wouldn't enjoy the more elaborate theming of other more expensive Disney Resorts? I wouldn't mind staying at Value Resorts if not for its tackiness. My favorite is the All Stars Music because compare to the other Value resorts, the theming seems less overkill.
Which resorts do you think have the best theming? Do you think that some are underthemed? Or overthemed? Share your thoughts.
And sorry if this is a repetitive and pointless discussion. But I love talking about the Disney hotels. They're one of my favorite aspects of Disney resorts.
