We are trying to decide where to stay on our next trip. I thought I would hang out with y'all and get some ideas of the Poly.

Made my room request today for Samoa,not sure if it is on there though. I told them to email me a copy and I didnt see it . It is usually in the upper left side. I guess I will call and check in a couple days to see if they added it. I did have a CM tell me they added it a couple years back and called a week or so later and it was not on there.

Refresh my memory on transportation at the Poly

When the monorail leaves the Poly where does it go first TTC ? I was just trying to think of how we get to Epcot. I know we can walk to the TTC. Does a monorail take us to Epcot from TTC ? The reason I'm not sure is because on the day we went to Epcot the monorail wasnt working.
So I guess my question is whats the best way to get to Epcot ?

No, it goes to the GF first. Then to the MK, CR and TTC.

Walk to TTC and get on the monorail to EPCOT there. That's the quickest.

You can either walk to the TTC from the Poly and pick up the Epcot monorail there, or...

You can take the resort monorail around the loop and then change to the Epcot monorail. The resort loop goes Poly-> GF-> MK-> Contemporary-> TTC, so it's actually a little faster to walk to the TTC, but the ride is convenient enough if you don't want to walk as much.

You will get 100 different answers!!! Here's mine- Fiji. Why? Because you can request Marina view at no extra charge! Less than a minute walk to the GCH and the Volcano (main pool) is right across the Marina.

We loved Samoa and thought is was very convenient to everything as it's just steps from the volcano/quiet pool, the beach, the GCH, and Captain Cooks . Have a great trip .

We booked garden view for our upcoming December trip.

Our top priorities were: close to GCH, while not being too far from the TTC or laundry, and a balcony.

With those priorities, we couldn't decide between Tokelou, Rarotonga, and Samoa.

So we ended up requesting, "3rd floor in a longhouse close to the quiet pool."
