Good Luck making a decision!
Thanks...our kids will be 4,5 and 8 months at time of trip....so thinking patio might be better for drink running!! lol

We liked the patio, too. Our kids were around the same ages, and they could go outside and run a bit, while we kept an eye on them. The first time we stayed at the Poly, we had a first floor, theme park view, and the kids headed straight for the sand and a hammock--they didn't even want to go into a park! It was nice to send the outside with DH, while I unpacked.

This is what we figured. Stay at the resort as much as possible this way it gives us a good idea if we want to return or not. I will probably ride with our DS and let him drive the water mouse. He would never take one himself even though it's easy as pie to drive one. I think the whole docking thing freaks him out.

I am not going to request a floor. I am going to leave it up to the tiki gods to see which one we get.

I have to laugh because this last trip was our 25th anniversary and we wore the buttons everywhere. Well after the 3rd day, our DS begged us to take the pins off. He begged us not to mention that it will be our 26th next year.

It is also alot easier to get to the pool and restaurants from the patio Samoa first floor facing the pool would be my first pick. I know this is a popular request but I would ask anyway.

Tokelau is just a building and doesn't cost any more to be in that building as another if you have the same room type.

Not sure what you mean? It is just a building with the same rooms as the rest?

Dinner and breakfast are very different though. Just the location mainly is the same. Different food, different entertainment, characters at breakfast. I wouldn't waste my time going to Chef Mickeys in any case when you're already at the Poly. But I hate Chef Mickeys.
