I've been thinking of doing a Disney cruise in the Fall. You must be so excited to have 3 coming up! CL would definitely be overkill with DxDDP. We did it once. Now I prefer TIW over any dining plan. It gives us more flexibility which works with the ages of my children (7 years and 10 months).

Thanks for the PD! I will definitely let you know if I hear back.
No problem! I am hoping it works out for you! But.. if it doesn't, contact me for that fall cruise!

Poly overhaul update

Steve is reporting on his Tikiman FB page that the latest rumour is the "major changes" are coming to the Poly in 2014 - 2015, with some work starting in 2013. He says he knows no more about the nature of these changes than when he first reported them in October. The speculation continues ...

Can anyone tell me if there is WIFI in the rooms at the poly? Or anywhere on the poly property? We are staying Hawaii CL so even if in the lounge there would be good. I have to do a small amount of work while I am there and I am trying to decide wether i can just take my iPad or if I need to take my laptop.

TIA!

Every time I read his updates on Facebook I think I'd rather know nothing than speculatory gossip.

Um, it's the 20th today. I think we would have heard if it had closed already. Definitely nervous here about this. My kids will be bummed if it is not open when we are there as I'm sure others kids would be if it happened during their trip.

ITA. I sometimes wonder if Steve's contacts aren't as reliable as in the past. He said there was going to be a big celebration on Oct. 24 this past fall for the Poly's 40th. We were there at the time and there was nothing except pins being handed out in CC's. The CM's we asked about it made us feel like we were crazy. I would also prefer if he didn't give little teasers about stuff he says he knows, but then tell us he can't reveal any more information.

I was at the Poly the week before the 40th celebration and I was also told that there would be a BIG announcement (this was from the bartender who has been there everytime I have been there - Tim I think?). It does make me wonder if there was a change in plans - maybe due to Fantasyland expansion??? Like they wanted a lot of rooms near MK for 2012/2013? Anyway, they also told me all about the GF villas before they were officially announced too so I know they get some correct information! Yet at the GF, the waitress who worked at GF for years claimed she didn't even know there was construction going on um seriously??

But I digress...I also sometimes would like to not hear the rumors but honestly, that's how we find out about everything before the general public! I got slammed once talking about a big BTMR update for this year (I know a guy working on the project). And of course, it was true. So it's hard to even bring up rumors on the DIS boards. Ah well, it's fun to speculate!

I wonder what is going on with the slide, too!! In the last newsletter I read (mousesavers, maybe?), there was mention of the GF (?) slide renovation but nothing mentioned about the volcano slide

The Poly did the same thing with the quiet pool. It like they really don't want the info out. Maybe to keep the rooms full?? But if you are really concerned you can call the reservation desk and they will have the most up to date info. You just have to call and ask.

Just got back tonight from the Poly. I'll post a mini review tomorrow, but wanted to jump on and let everyone know that the slide was open. I asked MANY people if it would be closing and was told each time that it would not be closing any time soon. As always, take the info with a grain (or two!) of salt, as it seemed like nobody knew for sure what was going on. Or if they did, they weren't telling
