OP here. I keep thinking about the price tag at the Poly and I am not sure if I can justify it, then I look at these pictures and they make the Poly just look amazing.

Thanks everyone!

These pics are from our trip 9/29-10/7. I've been avoiding this Poly pic thread as I was afraid to look at the pics because we're researching other resorts for our next trip. But I can't imagine staying anywhere else when I look at these pic. Man - I'm Poly hooked! I cut & pasted these pics from my review - hope it transfers ok!

We'll start off w/the waterfall at the GCH - very beautiful. It does make it hard to hear in the GCH but it is beautiful.



One rainy morning I decided to take some pics from our patio (Tokelau). This pic is looking to the left. Most morning we could see Cinderella's castle & space mt. This is not a lagoon view by any means but it was nice to get a glimpse. This pic is too blurry and misty to see much.


Our room view looking straight ahead. We had visitors every morning - Donald Duck's relatives.



Our room looking to the right. The poly has such beautiful walkways!


This is view behind waterfall outside the GCH.


Quiet pool by Tokelau - we didn't use it but it did have quite a few people using it while we were there.


Waterfall flowing into stream


Standing on bridge looking back toward GCH


Standing on bridge looking towards pool.


Grand Floridan to the left standing on beach


Contemporary to the right standing on beach


Just a pic of the walkway towards our longhouse - beautiful landscaping.


Heres the volcano pool again.


Here's DS8 going down the slide - he loved it!


We had a wonderful stay and can't wait to go back in a couple years!

Heres a mix of pics - I had 2 cameras going so there may be duplicates.

One morning DD2 & I went on a walk around the resort. I believe this walkway is going by the outside tables at capt cooks.


I believe this is the Fiji longhouse - I didn't think Fiji had balconies on the 2nd floor but this longhouse is directly behind the marina so my map shows Fiji. Tonga is at the top of the marina (not shown).


Fiji & back of Tuvalu


Pic of GF from the beach by Aotearoa, Fiji & Tuvalu.


On our way back.


Tuvalu - on a different day. I toke many walks w/my camera!!!!


Tuvalu in the back - taken from the Canoe Club where the life jackets are.


Peek at GF


Poly boat dock.


Beach in front of Hawaii looking back towards volcano pool.


I'll post some more.
