You could talk to ten people about the best Disney World hotels and get ten different answers. Sure, some resorts are part of the “popular crowd” (yes, even Disney World hotels have cliques), but everyone has their own ideas about which Disney hotel is the best.
At this point, the Disney World hotels are so popular that they’ve reached icon status, and the resorts have even developed personalities of their own! Hey, we’re no psychologists, but we’ve been to Disney World enough times to know what your favorite Disney World hotel says about you.
Before we get into it, we should preface this by saying that this is all just for fun; Disney fans come in all shapes and sizes! Now let’s find out if you fit our hotel personality assessment.
