If you’re staying on the Disney World property for your next vacation, you probably already know that you have TONS of choices.
While staying at any Disney World resort can be great, the resorts are very different – and not all will suit everyone.
So to help you narrow down your choices about where to stay, we asked our readers on Facebook:
What’s your “I’ll never stay here again” Disney World hotel story?
As you might imagine, we received hundreds of responses! Here are the 10 hotels we’ve heard about most often.
Many All Ears readers said they tried Coronado Springs and wouldn’t stay there again.
“It was way too spread out and big. The walk to the food court and bus stops was ridiculous,” said Tara. Heather Marie said Coronado Springs is “a maze of paths to get to the steps. … Beautiful place, just not ideal.”

While many people swear by this cheap resort with Skyliner transportation, some All Ears readers said it just wasn’t right for them.
“The food court was packed, the music and screaming kids running around without their parents was horrible,” said Renee. And Cathy compared Pop Century to “a quadruple priced Motel 6.”
Others said Pop Century’s rooms were too small. “I’m pretty sure I’ve stayed in cruise ship staterooms larger than that room,” Denise said.
The 6 Best Disney World Hotels for Families
Art of animation
Art of Animation is a wildly popular Disney World resort because it offers suites for larger families. But there’s one part of the resort in particular that our readers said they’d avoid next time: the Little Mermaid Rooms.
This area of the resort is the only one without the family suite setup, and it is also the furthest from the lobby and food court. That’s the problem, Lynn said. “The walk to something after a long hot day is just too much for me.”
Melinda said the thin walls are also a problem. The resort is well themed and cute, just avoid the little mermaid part.

Riverside of Port Orleans
Long walks were also a problem for some guests who said they would not stay at Port Orleans Riverside again.
Joanne said this resort had “beautiful grounds…but way too much walking. Everything was far.” Brad agreed: “Beautiful resort, but the buses…ugh.”

Caribbean beach resort
This resort is also blessed with beautiful grounds, and the complaint about it was… one of a kind.
“That calypso music will destroy you!” Melissa said of this resort’s ambient music.

All three All-Star Resorts (Music, Movies and Sports) were mentioned multiple times in our poll on Facebook, and we put them together here because they were all for the same reasons.
The number one complaint about the All-Star Resorts seems to be a perpetual complaint: the noise and the groups. Many youth sports, cheer and dance teams, and music groups travel to Disney World each year, and many of them end up at the All-Star Resorts. Jen said there were “large, loud groups outside” during her stay. And Mitch said there were “screaming cheerleaders of all ages” during his stay.

Grand Florida Resort
OK, out of nearly 400 answers to this question, we only got ONE vote for the Grand Floridian, and it’s not for any reason!
Here’s Pete’s story: “Last May, we went to check in with Pop Century. CM says they are overbooked and will have to move us. OK, no problem, because we’ll be spending most of our time in the parks anyway. Imagine if they sent us to AOA or similarly priced resort, imagine our shock when they sent us to THE GRAND FLORIDIAN for a week at our Pop rate! Great resort, great room, great staff and waaay out of our price range. Hence we will never stay there again, but it was nice while it lasted “
We should all be so lucky!
