What's your favorite DVC resort to stay at?

I've only stayed at all the DVC resorts at WDW, so my ranking would be:

1) BLT
2) BWV
3) BCV
4) VWL
5) AKV
6) SSR
7) OKW

I haven't stayed at VGC yet, but I think it will rank somewhere in the top 3. It has a great location (walk to DTD and two parks), some great views (watch the World of Color), and access to some great dining.

I haven't stayed at VB or HHI either.

well, I've only stayed at VGC (home) and SSR (also home). I'm staying in a Treehouse Villa in November!

I would like to try the other resorts sometime. I personally love the "openness" of SSR, but could see how someone used to more of a hotel-type DVC wouldn't like it.

What I like about my top 5 choices:

1) BLT

Location! You can walk to the Magic Kingdom
Views! Fantastic views of the MK and Bay Lake (and Wishes!)
On the Monorail! Access to other deluxe resorts
Dining! California Grill and access to great dining at GF/Poly
Top of the World Lounge! I love the view of the world from on high

2) BWV

Location! You can walk to Epcot and boat to DHS
Views! Great views of Crescent Lake and YC/BC
The Boardwalk Midway!
Dining! At all the Epcot resorts and inside Epcot, including Flying Fish Cafe on the BW!
3) BCV

Location! You can walk to Epcot and boat to DHS
Stormalong Bay! The best feature pool at WDW
Dining! At all the Epcot resorts and inside Epcot, including Yactsman Steakhouse and Beaches & Cream
Sandy Beach on Crescent Lake with views of the Boardwalk
4) VWL

Magnificently rendered theme!
The Lodge! Peaceful and romantic
Just a relaxing boat ride away from the MK
5) AKV

The animals on the Savanna!
Great exotic theme!
A feeling of remoteness! relax away from the Parks
Great dining! Jiko, Boma and Sanna
I guess for me it's all about location, location, location!

I really want to try AKV for the animals.

I would like to stay at one of the Epcot resorts for Food and wine or Flower and Garden--but unlikely at 7 month mark. I was going to try this time but then my Treehouse villa waitlist came through and I decided to stick with that.

I'm new to DVC (just made my first payment this month, bought in March) so I haven't had a chance to stay anywhere yet, my home resort is Grand Californian. I've used my points though to stay at Paradise Pier and Disneyland Hotel (which my daughter loved since she got the refurbished room). Am looking forward to my first stay at Grand Californian in December. I really want to try and get into Boardwalk, Beach Club or the Treehouse Villas in February of 2011 for a couple of days.
