I was smart enough to marry a DH who does the laundry!
Dun-DUN! Has 8 Matthew McConaugheys at work!
The Rock, in his little man-bikini, is quite pretty!

This is my first time posting on this thread. . .

DH, DS & I are going on the Dream in June 2013 for their 40th and 5th birthdays! I am hoping to stay at Poly (DH's dream resort--it would be our first time there) for two nights before the cruise. . .and I'm hoping to surprise DH with Club Level!! Reading this thread has made me even more excited!!

Anyone have any idea when the 2013 rates would come out??

Poly newbie here - going in May with DH, DD (4) and my mom (adjoining room) and I am *so* incredibly excited!
I have two questions about things I've seen mentioned in this thread:
1) How do you get an upgrade? We just have Garden View reservations; concierge level was out of our price range.
2) What is 'garden grocer?' Is it a nearby grocery store? We're not going to have our own transportation but would love to stock up on snacks/drinks for the room.
Thanks!

You don't really get an upgrade....unless some pixie dust is sprinkled on you at checkin, and that won't be known until you check in....you are best off to book and pay for the category you want while there is still availability.

Garden Grocer is where you can order online things to be delivered to your room, such as pop, bread, and other such things....many people really like them and it gets good reviews for service

Have a wonderful trip!

I have used Garden Grocer several times! Definitely helps save some money with stocking up on juices, water, milk, snacks, etc. We also order baby things such as diapers and wipes. Saves us some space in our suitcase! Psss...they also deliver beer too!

I prefer wegoshop.com since they don't have a minimum order requirement. Their service is EXCELLENT and they will shop at Costco if you ask them to. They only charge you what the groceries cost instead of crazy inflated prices, plus a small service charge that is tiered based on what your order costs. It's definitely cheaper than renting a car or taxing a taxi roundtrip.

I have actually found it cheaper to rent a car. If you search for discounts you can usually rent a car for around 30-40 dollars from mco to the car center. I bought from garden grocer one year and it cost me 25.00 dollars just for tip and delivery fee.

Have you been on a Disney Cruise and had the Konk Kooler? This Island Sunset looks like it? Was wandering if it was anything like it?

Gina congrats on adding some extra Poly goodness to your trip! I know how exciting it is. Since I can get a sweet TA discount I'm changing our trip to all 12 nights at the Poly and I'm over the moon with excitement. What's it about the darn Poly that keeps us hooked?

AWESOME! I am a TA as well but don't get a TA discount. I don't have my CLIA or IATA yet.

WAIT... Didn't you ask me about how to be a Pixie?? And you are already a TA?

My agency told me how to get it. It's super easy.

But you have to have a CLIA or IATA to get a TA discount. You have to prove it to Disney within 2 business days.

I meant they told me how to get the card. They're CLIA certified so it was easy peasy.
