View Full Version : NO ROOM (End of august) at POLYNESIAN Resort ???? why ?

Hello eveybody !

We asked our travel agent in February to book for us a room from 08/20 to 08/23 in this amazing resort !

He just said yesterday that there is no room so we're very disappointed !
I guess it's a very big resort with a lot of rooms so can anyone give me an explanation about such an answer ?

Last summer, we were in this resort at the same moment and as I remember today, we booked later than now so...... !!
Moreover, I read that Disney's finished by now to decorate every rooms so, as it's the end of summer I can explain myself why we cannot book !

We'll go in the contemporary but it's not the same for me, because I prefer a more romantic and exotic resort such as Polynesian, so do my kids !! (because of the Tremendous pool) !

The Disney website is showing availability. Try booking it yourself!

Good luck!

Or try calling WDW reservations.

I think your travel agent is just plain wrong. I checked w/ AAA and they still have discounted rooms available for your dates (~$267/night). You could (should) call CRO yourself and get the reservation.

call disney yourself

Yep Call direct. Some travel agents don't have access to all the available rooms I think. And also some are not so eager to help with short trips. I remember one agent that we had used for several big trips- big meaning $$(pre kids) Then a few months after a huge trip I asked her to book us a room at disney for the weekend and she said she would try. Said "sorry no rooms" I called myself and was able to get a room(at a great rate I might add) and can you believe she had the nerve to ask me to let her get the travel agent credit on the room. Umm NO!

Thank you very much !
I'll call directly Disney to check by myself !

I'm surprised travel agents are doing this. We normally don't use travel agents because we book everything ourselves online or direct. You'd think since it's easier for people to book things themselves they'd be happy to help anyone whether it's a short trip or a long expensive one. :confused3

Let us know what Disney says direct! I am interested to see if you get into Poly. I bet you will. :cheer2:

That just seems crazy. My aunt booked a room there in September for a trip in December for the week before christmas and had no trouble getting a room and that was just three months prior. Let us know if you were able to get something. I really doubt you will have a problem.

Interesting... In February I tried to book the Contemporary for our trip 8/19-8/27 and it was also already totally booked. The travel agent gave me that info so I called myself and got the same story and I went to the Official Disney site and got the same story. I thought that was odd to be booked 6 months in advance but the TA said there was most likely a convention at that time. I asked about the Poly as an alternative but was told that was booked solid as well. They suggested Yacht/Beach Club but the $129 Swan/Dolphin promo came out a few days later so I booked that. It's making me nervous that it will be really really crowded at the end of August!

its a little bit more complicated ,
actually we ve planned a longer trip 20 - 24 august contemporary 24- 28 august polynesian and 29 august 4 september port orleans riverside :
our travel agent is a canadian disneys specialist and he had non difficulties to get the rooms for contemporary and riverside (and also for the grand floridian he asked for us because of the room problemn in the polynesian);
we've also received from disney directly the reservations he has made for us in the contemporary and riverside ; perhaps he has no acces to all rooms after all;
he said he'll try later again(whith the AP discounts when available)

That travel agent needs to be sent to Donald Trumps board room.

our messages arrived at the same time;
at the present time we've been able to book the contemporary from 08/20 to 08/28!

We booked the Poly on Jan 31 for a Aug 28- Sept 1st /2006 stay after 7 nights at AKL. At first our CAA TA said it was fully booked but she said she would try again and did so right away as we sat with her. With the second call she got exactly what we wanted with the discount. Keep trying if that is what you really want!

I hope we'll be so happy as you did !

Thank you everyone for your quickly answers !

Have a good day !
