Love early May, we've been twice. Can't anymore due to travel baseball. Very warm to just a tad hot, it depends. But very manageable, only midday gets really toasty - perfect time for a pool break. Both May trips - not a drop of rain!

We always go to WDW in early May, although this year will be our first Poly stay. You can get the occasional afternoon thunderstorm in May. This happened once each week when we were there in May the last two years. They were huge thunderstorms, so severe that we had to pull over on the highway and wait it out. They don't last long, though, and it's not everyday like in the summer. The rest of the week was beautiful, not a cloud in the sky. Temps most days were high 80's to low 90's.

Awesome news about May!!

We are paying off our trip today!!!! SO EXCITING!!!

It puts me in a much better mood than I was in yesterday. My DH ordered some flowers to be delivered to me at work through Teleflora...THEY NEVER SHOWED! The customer service number just hangs up on you and it feels like we have just been ripped off

Guess that's $150 we will never see again. What a waste. Its the thought that counts though. I am a lucky girl!



It is becoming so real, which is awesome because I have been thinking about this trip for over a year!!!!

my DD(37) has a business trip to Tampa in June and just booked three nights to follow that at the Poly.

Now why wouldn't she pack me in a suitcase? Sniff, sniff, sniff!!! Puppy dog eyes didn't even get her attention. Well I will just have to wait for our Family trip in 2013.

Buying DD's "I'm Going to the Disney World Resort" shirt tomorrow. Disney Store is having their anniversary sale. Now, I am just trying to figure out how to announce the trip. Any ideas on how to suprise a 4 year old?!

Think I will pick up a Cinderella Tutu as well. They are so cute!

For my four year old grandson my daughter just put in the presentation DVD and handed him the maps she ordered and it didn't take him long to figure it out. He still did not really get it until we walked under the train at MK and he saw the castle and he shouted. "We are really HERE!"

Just wanted to say that in exactly five months we will be at the Poly! Yay! I know it's still five months away but you have to get excited about something right?

Kids!!! You change there diapers, send them to college and cant even include mom on a disney trip.
You will have to forget your wallet on your next trip in 2013. "Sorry, crazy, forgetfull mom forgot her wallet".

Room Rates

Do the POLY rooms ever come down into the $300 range or better for 1 night? I would love to stay at the POLY for our arrival night before my package at BWI CL kicks in on Sept 29..... The prices seem so high and I am having a hard time justifying $495 plus tax for 1 day! I have thought about AOA as well, but I think this would be a great opportunity to try out the POLY without a huge commitment, and if I love it, then it might be a great choice for my future anniversary trip. Being as I only need a room for one night, I hope some discount or better pricing might be obtainable

Well, for the date you need with 40% off you'd be at $297+tax, but that's a best case scenario.

Good luck. The Poly is spectacular
