Top Ten Teen Resorts
4. Walt Disney World Resort
Magical memories arent exclusive to the 12 and under at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. Thrill rides like Rock n Roller Coaster and the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and originals such as Space Mountain and Pirates of the Caribbean are a must for any Orlando adventurer, and newer attractions like Toy Story Mania! and The American Idol Experience give new reason to return at any age. Beyond the theme park gates, two water parks, an indoor interactive playground and 24 Disney-owned resort properties offer boundless entertainment options, from surfing, tubing and wakeboarding to riding a rollercoaster you've created yourself.
On site, in the Deluxe category, Disneys Polynesian Resort and Disneys Beach Club Resort offer expansive pools with sandy beaches and are popular options for families with teens. In the Moderate category, Disneys Coronado Springs Resort is a find, with a Mayan Pyramid pool and a full fitness center and spa offering My First Facials, while in the Value category, Disneys All-Star Music Resort offers suite options for spreading out.

Buzz - you added the bold type to the article yourself yes?
I think that the Beach/Yacht Club probably win the teen vote due to the pool.

Asking my resident panel of experts (aka, my own teenagers), they'd reply:
Value resorts: Pop Century for the cool oversized theming elements
Moderate resorts: Caribbean Beach for the Pirate themed rooms, and Coronado Springs for the fun pool area
Deluxe resorts: Polynesian because they love the tropical theme and it was their 'first resort at WDW', the Animal Kingdom Lodge for the amazing theming and animals, Beach Club for its fabulous pool area and Beaches and Cream ice cream shop, and the Contemporary because--let's face it--having a monorail running right through the building is just too much fun!
Especially if WDW is #4 I figured that Universal Orlando would make the list.
The #3 ranking made sense to me. My kids enjoyed both WDW and USF as kids, teens and now in their 20's, but my son has always loved USF more. With the coasters and Men in Black it can't be beat for him.
