Does anyone know if the Volcano pool has reopened? The rehab has it closed until the 15th, but a CM told me this morning he thought it was open because it's not popping up as a rehab on his screen anymore.

Hi there, just wanted to say we stayed in the Poly last month and it was WONDERFUL! I'm not sure if we'll ever stay anywhere else at WDW.

We were in the Tokelau building, had a room on the second floor facing the quiet pool. Great location, close to everything. We could even see fireworks from our balcony!

A PP asked about the food at the food court. It wasn't bad, it wasn't great, but it wasn't bad. Much better than the food at the food court at Port Orleans. IMHO. The BBQ chicken pizza was really good, although not offered every day.

Anyway, just wanted to chime in with what a great time we had at the Poly!

I forgot how much I enjoyed that movie and we both agreed then and there it was most assuredly(sp?) the Poly!! I know we aren't going until next year, but I am still excited NOW!!
We watched it when it was on, as well, and I was so happy to see my girls get so excited about meeting Lilo & Stitch, since she never really liked that movie all that well. Secretly, of course, because they don't know we're staying at the Poly...yet!

Thanks for posting! I can't believe all the information compiled here, it's making me wish I could stay at the poly.

Thanks for the info!

We put in a request to stay in Tokelau as well, so it's great to hear that you liked it.

Just upgrade to the poly for our stay

and we can't wait. DH will be in St Pete's for a few days at the beginning of our trip so I get a few days at the Poly! I got garden view but figured even that must be good at the Poly :>)

We are doing the luau...hope it is worth the money

We have never stayed at the Poly either. (Guess that make me a Polyensian virgin ) But growing up and passing it via the Monorail, I was always secretly dreamed of staying there. Our trip in 2009 will only be a 4 nighter because we are taking a big family vacation to Wisconsin in early August. We are planning to only really visit MK and Epcot and hang around the Poly pools and beach. This will be a laid back Disney vacation.

So where better to lay back in enjoy the atmosphere than at the Poly!! We haven't decided if we want club level, lagoon view, MK view, or garden view...we are waiting until August when 2009 rates come out....but I am getting plenty of insight from this thread and another Poly thread...

So keep the good stuff comin'!!!!

Got a Poly update email from Tikiman today ... I believe he said the pool will be opening "very soon".

I was just visiting the Poly last Saturday (3/8). The pool was open! It was cold outside though so only a few brave souls entered the pool. Even the lifeguard was bundled up.

I tell people that the luau is worth doing at least once. It was a wonderful experience and I got lots of great photos. Here's one of my favorite shots:

No matter what view you get, you'll still be at the Poly! Lots of good times to be had. It is killing me to have to wait until December to stay at the Poly again.

Wow, I guess I'm not the first person who wanted to take their hotel bed home with them! :> Thanks so much for the link!

RE: My Sig line

CoolPool - it's a quote from Family Guy. I don't really watch the show, but in one episode my husband has on DVD, the dad realizes that for his kid to be successful, he has to become Jewish, because all successful people seem to be Jewish to him...so they go into a synagogue and see all these famous people, including Optimus Prime, who proceeds to "transform" with his yarmulke and tassles which flip out. It was pretty darn brilliant.

You're definitely not. After my first stay at the Poly my mission was to find out what kind of mattress they use. So now I'm saving up to buy one!
