I just made reservations for the Poly during Thanksgiving week, a few days ago. All the info here has been great. We had a hard time deciding between poly and por, but the benefit of staying on the monorail with 2 young children, as well as the bigger rooms, and queen beds helped us to make our decision. We'll be celebrating my dd 7th birthday and my mother in law will be with us, so there were not a lot of choices for 5 people. Again, great thread. I'm sure I'll be back many times!

Hurray! I just paid off my AAA package today!

It was a big chunk of change, but 10 nights at the Poly will make it all worthwhile! I can't wait!

If you use the refillable mug, can you get the self serve dole whip with that?

The Dole Whip is seperate from the mugs so whenever you want one you need to pay for it.

So I guess there's no reason for us to get the refillable mugs this year. I'll just pay for the dole whips instead. The boys and I can't live without them on any Disney visit let alon when were at the Poly.

Thanks alot for the information. I have one more question, I have asked it on the cake thread but I haven't gotten an answer. Can I have chocolate strawberries or a cake delivered to the room when we arrive? And if so what would something like that run me?

Thanks

Tikiman's site is the best source for info - he has pics. The only bad thing is all the suites are in Tonga, and I really wanted to stay in Hawaii - but I'm sure it will be great! I know they are first floor and border the marina - you can see the castle in the distance.
The 2-bedroom Princess suite is on the first floor, the 1 bedroom is directly above it. Both have great castle views

There is a "mini-lounge" on the 2nd floor of Tonga. They have a continental breakfast there just like in Hawaii (but better pastries and more cereal choices), and snacks/cookies out after that. The only thing missing are the evening services, so if you want those you have to go to Hawaii. It's not a far walk though.

Another great thing about Tonga is that it is RIGHT next to the GCH, and you can use a covered walkway between the 2 during rainstorms

After laying out, rearranging and re-laying out clothes for our trip, I have accepted that I am going to have to suck it up and do at least one load of laundry during our 7 day Poly stay in September, in order to avoid too much luggage--3 months and 3 weeks--yippeee! Do the washers\dryers take dollar bills or just quarters?

Hi all,

I have stayed at the Polynesian 3 times in a row, and LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! There's just something about the atmosphere there that makes me smile so brightly.

I was just wondering if anyone has a specific longhouse they prefer to stay in.
