Wow thank you for sharing this so late at night! I am just home from work and heading to bed and yours was the last post I am going to read. Now I can dream about the Poly! It sounds like you and your mom are very close...so nice. When are you headed back in Sept?

Yes. She is my best friend. It was a long time coming but she is my travel buddy! I will be back September 17-20 and then will be on the Disney Dream the 20-23. I think... and not sure yet, we are going to fly in Saturday the 15th, which is my bday... but not sure if that will be a Poly stay or a resort only stay at POFQ or maybe the CR. Either way works for me!

Thanks for the clarification.

And I love your Poly pics!

Love all the pictures! What a great way to tell your mom about the Dream trip!!! And just had to say that you are right to enjoy the adult vacations I adore Disney with my kids but there is something so nice about those vacations we had years ago when it was OUR pace.

princessdisnygina - Thanks for sharing your quick trip report and photos!

I started packing this weekend - over 2 weeks in advance is earlier than I have ever packed. But I'll be in NY for work starting tomorrow for 6 days, then only about 48 hours at home before we get on a plane to Florida! I'll probably overpack on clothing, but as long as it all fits in the suitcases, we'll be good. I was feeling really ahead of the game...until today. Packing for the work trip is stressing me out - so obviously I'm taking a break here on the DIS.

Tikiman's Unofficial Polynesian Resort Pages:
Cold temperatures have caused some damage to the monorail beam between the Grand Floridian and the Magic Kingdom. The monorails have to reduce speed over this section of beam and this is causing delays.

Yikes! Anyone there now that can comment on this?

And to PrincessdisnyGina - it was refreshing to see someone not 100% loving their room who made ther best of it!

ONLY 2 Weeks? You are WAY behind!! (not even being sarcastic, I've got 6 months until the family trip, 3 until my solo trip and I'm already packing!)

LOVE MAY TEMPS! My first time at the Poly was a land/sea vacation that spanned over Mother's Day. Warm enough to swim and enjoy the weather but not so hot you were sweating after 2 minutes outside. Not a lot of rain and just fabulous. LOVE MAY at Disney and wish I could go all the time. But with the kids getting older, it makes a difference if they miss too much school now. So enjoy MAY!!!!

princessdisnygina,

Did you try requesting a different room at check-in? I'm curious if they attempted to accommodate you and couldn't?

Thanks for your report!

Hello Poly Lovers I booked my airfare last night, and in doing so, I ended up needing to book a day earlier to get the flight sale, so Another Disney Day for us

Unfortunately, I am now homeless for my arrival night....I am anxiously awaiting some "hopeful" spring/ summer discount codes that might help make a room at the POLY affordable for us for our arrival night.....We are staying at the BWI CL, for Sept 28-Oct 4, but to add on another night in our current Deluxe room, was going to be $950.00 definitely VETOED that!!!!

I am hoping that maybe we will be able to get even a standard GV room at the POLY for around the $300 mark or better, then I will be able to experience at least ONE night at this beautiful resort! and try the pool, and watch wishes from the pool, and dine at Captain Cookes -- adult grilled cheese! mmmmm -- before our package kicks in on the 29th of Sept.....

Fingers crossed an affordable option opens up for us!
I'd love a night of POLY Paradise!
