I love the idea of the premium cabana, but don't really care for the location. We rented a regular cabana last year and felt it was the perfect spot.

I really didn't like the location either! But it did provide a small "secret haven"
I liked the vegetation and that gorgeous dining table!

The fireworks viewing was blocked by the boat dock! I wrote a review on tikimans website.

We rented it all day and night I believe it was a little over $640 all together. But I can't remember exactly.

Cool, is there a source for the pricing for other levels like the ones near the boat docks and which are better than most? I don't want to get stuck behind a boat dock either lol.

Tips for first timer?

I am absolutely loving this thread, especially seeing everyone's pictures. It's making me even more excited for our trip, which seems sooooo far away!

Anyway, I was wondering if you Poly pros have any advice/suggestions/tips for a first timer? It all seems so overwhelming! We'll be at Poly for a week with parkhopper tickets and we are on a dining plan. We are still trying to figure out ADRs, which I know we need to do ASAP. However, we are waiting to find out if my mother wants to join us on our trip, so we can't make our ADRs until we know how many to make the reservations for.

Anyway, it's basically my husband, myself and our 4-year old daughter and possibly my mom. I'll take as much advice as I can get.

Thank you soooo much! And keep those pictures and reviews coming. :-)

Also along with this thread there is also www.tikimanpages.com where there is pretty extensive reviews, info, maps, and more on the Poly.

I think it just flipped to 1 day I just looked and it was at that point. But I believe they leave today, or did I get that wrong?

The one that I posted is the premium cabana at last I checked there was only one of them. The other two are located beside each other just above the pool in the middle. It used to be the smoking/tanning area. I really liked the premium cabana because I am off the beaten path so there is not people just walking into the cabana! I did have a couple of nasty incidents though.. Some thought that the comfy chairs could be used but not paid for.. Had one person cuss me out as they were leaving to go back to THEIR resort because they thought they had a right to grab our chairs for wishes!

You can rent them or reserve them by calling 1-407-939-7529 (1-407-WDW-play)

Wow I was reading that, when I got to the part about the cussing, they were just jealous. But they do look comfy. I am about to call them right now and inquire about it. Thanks so much for the info!

What I would suggest with your ADR's make your reservation for 3. There is no tables that hold just three. So if your mom joins in then all that much better. The only ones that you shouldn't make ADR's for until you know is the "dinner shows" they charge per person regardless..

I wish we could go back to the poly for the first time!!

Yeah no problem, even the cast members at the resort drop this site to potential guests wanting to stay there. Of course it's unofficial. But it is very helpful picking out ideal areas you'd like to be placed hopefully lol.
