BC: Exciting new land to explore with new lore/races
MoP: Exciting new land to explore with new lore/races.
"Bigheaded Poster" Bona-fied 100%, Grade-A Bigheaded. :3
BC - My Guild and raiding.
LK - Arena and PvP
Cata - Easy levelling and to a certain degree questing. Standing in Org...oh, wait.
MoP - Everything so far - I love my monk!
1) Load the amount of weight I would deadlift onto the bench
3) Crank out 15 reps
4) Be ashamed of constantly skipping leg day
BC - Isle of Quel Danis
Wrath - I liked every teir even 3.2
Cata - Old world revamp, dont get enough credit imo. Transmog.
MoP - Return to the world, adventurous feel, world bosses
BC: BT (illidan only)
BC - Trials of the Naaru & Hand of A'dal questlines
Wrath - Lich King Story
Cata - Old World Revamp
MoP - So much stuff to do at 90
BC- Flying Mounts
Wrath - Ulduar
Cata - T11 content
MoP - AOE looting. Sure you don't notice it now, but going from the beta to live without it made live feel dreadful.
So many good things from each expansion, it's so hard to choose.. so forgive me if I name more than one :P
TBC - Everyone is saying flying mounts.. So I'll say daily quests concept and alliance shamans/horde paladins
WotLK - LFG system, Dual Spec.. and Real ID!
Cata - Revamped low level content and reforging
MoP - Can I say everything? I'm loving it right now

Hmm... Tough one.
TBC - Flying mounts
WotLK - Achievements
Cata - Old world revamp
MoP - Everything except for lack of Bank/AH in Pandaria
Fallout 4 Hype!
TBC - Almost everything
WoTLK - Beast cleave (Yea, fuck mages)
Cataclysm - It was mostly crap, uhh the integrated quest helper made leveling a joke and tolerable.
MoP - New BG's so far.
TBC - raids not being 20/40 man and JC. I like gemming my gear. /shrug
WOTLK - Dual spec. That was so needed.
Cata - Flying everywhere. Old world really needed the revamp.
MOP - Monk, Monk, Monk, and Monk. I love my monk so much...
I also agree that blizzard should not be praised for transmog. I recently saw they said they didn't even know how successful it would be. They are that dense. They completely ignored a feature everyone I know has wanted since Vanilla and other games had it already so all they had to do was copy it.
TBC: The content of Outland, the atmosphere and feeling of being in another world.
Wotlk: Nordic theme, I was a "fan" of nordic mythology as a kid and knew lots about it. Have to say seeing Freya and the rest as NPCs/bosses made me die on the inside a bit, though.
MoP: Same as TBC, Pandaria is so beautiful.
I love the people here who say that quests are their favorite things in MoP! Most of the people I encounter hates it and everything that takes time in this game, I'm starting to think that about 90% of everyone I come across in this game has picked the wrong genre. They play an MMORPG but hates the RPG part.
TBC: Server wide progressive daily questing area(Isle)
WOTLK: Showdown with LK on the top of the world and him actually killing you was so badass to me.
Cata: Questing and world revitalization.
MoP: So much to do...
The generalist looks outward; he looks for living principles, knowing full well that such principles change, that they develop. It is to the characteristics of change itself that the mentat-generalist must look. There can be no permanent catalogue of such change, no handbook or manual. You must look at it with as few preconceptions as possible, asking yourself, "Now what is this thing doing?" -Children of Dune
The first is not an xpac, but I'll add it anyway:
Wrath: Wrapping up WC3
Cata: Old World Revamp
Mists: Quest Progression
BC: The alienish/doom-and-gloomy-feeling
Cata: Nothing really
MoP: Gear looks
The moment when, thanks to transmogrification, your character selection screen looks like the cast of the Downton Abbey.
Classic: The game was new, and so everything was like ..... woah that is so awesome
TBC: Horde got paladins
WotLK: Wrathgate questline/event
Cataclysm: World revamp
MoP: so much to do, don't need to do all of it.

I'm not kidding about every time. I'm aoeing stags in Jade Forest to skin on my alt right now and every time I loot, I think oh my god imagine if I had to loot each one of these individually.
Every expansion has had many good aspects, my list is just my personal favorites.
The Burning Crusade: Paladins became available to the Horde.
Wrath of the Lich King: Northrend, the art and design of the zones and instances was great.
Mists of Pandaria: Account-wide mounts/achievements.
Also, I have to argue against flying mounts being a positive addition to the game. While they are convenient and make questing significantly easier, they remove the player from the game and shrink the world.
