Thanks! More room to bring home "pixie dust!"

Hi - I am subscribing to this thread as I hope to make my dream of staying at the Poly for my birthday next year. It is a big one that shall not be named. I am trying to calculate the cost and was looking for what the discount was for this year.

My bday is near the end of May and if I did the search correctly the discount was 25% off. Can someone let me know if this is right or what other discounts might have been out at the time?

Thanks!!

Typically that time of year is 30%ish but this year they have kept the discount at the Poly a little lower than other Deluxes. Here's the historical chart of discounts (by type) and it shows you what was offered this year (%'s by date) so you can compare (look at the bottom of the page).

It looks like you go frequent enough to possibly consider getting an AP. While room discounts don't become available until a month or 2 before your travel time the AP rates on the Poly have been better than the GP rates. Then you could book a decent GP rate once those come out and convert to the AP rate once discounts are released. The AP discount has typically been between 32% & 42% off rack.

Awesome! We're looking at either mid-June or early August. If you don't mind my asking, what kind of discount is AAA offering - 10%?

Wow! I really needed the Polynesian fix and I certainly came to the right place.Your pictures are spectacular and makes me want to go back sooner than next March to bad I can't. At least I have your thread here to help make it thru the summer!

A HUUUUUUUUGE thanks to you Rob!!! This was just what I needed!! Little more than a month to go, and really wanting the time to go by more quickly! The pictures are fabulous, as always!! For those not having stayed before, I don't think they could want for a better website to inform them!

On a different note, anyone with young dd's (around 6, 7, 8, 9 10) arriving around the 24th?? My dd8 is an only child (had her late in life), and I am sure she would just LOVE to have another Disney Princess to play with in the volcano pool! We plan to spend more time at the resort this trip, especially since we will be there in August, which we typically don't do. Maybe we can meet up in the pool!!

I WISH we were going to be there, my DD is an only child too, (8), and she is always looking for other kids to play with in the Volcano pool since all Mom wants to do is sit on the beach and sip Banana Cabana's, LOL. Plan a trip for Sept. 2012 as well, and we'll see you there! LOL.

love the photos. i stayed at the poly once for 2 nights in 2007 but didn't really have a chance to enjoy the resort as much as i'd have liked, now i'm counting the days for a 4 day trip starting in 23 days. the only question mark for us now is how they'll be working transportation back to the resort at the end of emh from mk since they'll be cutting monorail service starting aug 1st. hoping it's not just those little 30 some odd people seat boats.

Awwww.....sounds like this mom too!!! We might just see you there in Sept 2012. We go every year, and if we can't handle the August heat, Sept might be an option again! Plus, we LOVE MNSSHP, and we are kind of disappointed that we won't be able to do that this year... See you here on the Poly thread!

Thanks for the info. We used to have APs before the economy cut us back. It would be great to get them again as ticket prices are so high and it is a better deal. To be able to come for the Wine & Dine 1/2 Marathon we are doing the party after the race for Epcot and the Halloween party for the Magic Kingdom.
