Anyone have a suggestion? I'll probably request 1st floor b/c I'd hate for anyone to be beneath us if the kids get rowdy.
Tokelau only has a couple of sideways facing lagoon view rooms (Looking toward, but not at, the marina area). I believe there is one room on the second floor and one room on the third floor that are listed as lagoon view.

Tuvalu has a smaller less hectic beach next to it and one side of the building includes lagoon view rooms that face out across Seven Seas Lagoon and toward the Magic Kingdom.

Tahiti has a side that faces straight across the lagoon toward the Magic Kingdom and sits right on a beach (again, not the main beach), but is furthest away from the GCH.

Aotearoa has a few lagoon view rooms that look out across a lawn and then the lagoon more toward the Grand Floridian.

If you look at the maps in the first and third posts of the thread you'll get a good idea of where the rooms are in relation to the beaches and GCH and which direction they would face. Rooms are all located along the "long" sides of the longhouses.

I hope that helps some!!

I need your honest thoughts! Ok... so I am a Poly girl but WL is my second choice. My mother and I are actually staying at the WL in 18 days and I am trying to decide one of two options. I have stayed at the Poly in CL but no where else. So...

Do I upgrade my WL room to CL? We will be having a relaxed trip.

OR... do I change to the Poly in a GV room?

They are about the same price and as much as I want to spend at this point. Your thoughts are appreciated!

We are staying 5 nights and will do the parks but not from open to close. We are passholders so spending all day in the parks won't happen for us. We want this to be a relaxed Disney trip, if thats possible. LOL. TIA!

I am hoping we can stay at the Poly again this September!!!!! We didn't want to spend as much on vacation this year so I was actually contemplating a split stay at POFQ for 4 days and then Poly for 4 days. We will see, 8 days at the Poly would be better!

We started out trying to save money on our WDW vacation this year too, and got an amazing deal for POR, but it just didn't feel right to us. After a little discussion and pleading on my part (not too much pleading though, more like just planting a seed) DH and I switched back to the Poly.
Now all is right with the world

Well you certainly have a dilemma! We have stayed at both and I can give you some things to think about.

The WL is a relaxed laid back atmosphere with rocking chairs rustic decor with
beautiful flora but whispering canyon gets really loud In The lobby. It is possible to get glimpses of wishes in certain areas. Artist pointe is a signature restaurant with some really awesome mussels. The buses make it difficult to just jaunt back to the resort for a nap or a swim.

The poly is über relaxing laid back atmosphere.. Rooms are extra large, the pool is absolutely gorgeous! You can be back at the resort from MK or Epcot in about 20 minutes there or back. Sitting by the pool sipping a Lapu Lapu as the sun sets is something that is heavenly! Waking up early nursing a fresh cup of coffee from the 24 hr captain cooks while walking along the totally vacant beach as the sun rises! Hearing the faint sounds of the cast members at MK getting fired up for the day.. Priceless! Sitting on the beach watching the castle change colors.. Fabulous! Did I mention WISHES from the beach? It's a head on view. The reflections on bay lake as the fireworks dance in the night sky cannot be discounted! The smell as you walk leisurely walk through the tropical rainforest lobby.

Not being biased or anything..

Good morning poly!
