I said the same thing after we stayed there last month. I love CR and AKV but the Poly was sooooo beautiful and relaxing. My dd fell in love too. We spent a whole day enjoying the pool and the grounds and went to the park at night. We lived everything about the place! Thank goodness for the AP discount.

Was it just about the longhouse refurb schedule?

I have a room scheduled for 2 nights in June at the end of our trip, but it's tentative. My kids loved the Poly. I wasn't thrilled while we were there, but the Poly love has been creeping up on me! I blame all of you Poly freaks!

It only took one stay for us to fall in love with the Poly too . We've only stayed there once and have tried several other resorts since then, but the Poly will always be our favorite .

We spent alot of time around the resort and at the pool on our Poly stay and we couldn't have been happier.....love everything about the Poly .

Love for the Poly has a way of spreading .

Officially joining the Poly thread.

I have always wanted to stay there, but have been overruled by my DH and kids. We will only be there for 3 nights pre-cruise in Feb, but I will take it.

We are in a garden view room. Would you guys request anything, or just go with the flow?

TIA!

You're going to love the Poly . You will get varying opinions on the best location, but we stayed in Samoa and loved it. Samoa is conveniently located to everything as it's just steps from the GCH, volcano/quiet pools, the beach, and Captain Cooks. But with that said, I don't think there is a bad location at the Poly, so if you just want to go with the flow, I don't think you'd be disappointed where ever you end up .

If there is something you really want in a location then make a request, they are pretty good at trying to accommodate them (although they never guarantee requests) It just depends on what/if something is important to you, eg. close to TTC, close to GCH/pool, balcony, etc. If none of that matters then just go with the flow!

Thank you both.

Since I am a planner to a fault, maybe this part of the trip should just be a surprise.
I can stay anywhere for 3 nights in Disney and be happy.

I have been lurking on the thread, but I missed a few weeks, and only read the last 4 or 5 pages, so sorry in advance if this question is beating a dead horse!
Head been posting from there recently. I don't think there was anything that changed too much from the refurb schedule on the website. There was some info on the DVC changes....putting it off some I believe. I thought I read somewhere though that the schedule was pushed back some though. Samoa was supposed to be done by march, but I'm not sure anymore. I might be changing our request to another house now....

Is there a specific longhouse renovation schedule available somewhere? I posted before about how we really wanted to book CL at Poly for January, but currently have a GV because they are planning a Hawaii renovation during our stay. So my next choice would be Samoa, third floor, facing the volcano pool. (I know, not likely to get a request that specific, but I thought it was at least worth a try.) If they are renovating Samoa in January, I'll need to think about an alternative request. (Although I should think about that anyway, in the event that 3rd Floor Samoa isn't available when we check in.)

We are also going in January and I would like to know a renovation schedule too. For what it's worth, we always request Samoa 1st floor facing the volcano pool. We don't always get the floor but we have always gotten a room in Samoa facing the pool. I probably just jinxed myself. But like you, I'd like to know a schedule before I put in a request.
