Had to post to say 60 days till I return to my beloved Poly!!!! YAY!!! DBF & I are alternating now b/w the Poly and BWI--but I so love when it's my turn!

[QUOTE=MichelinMan;46771858]Got a quick question for you Poly lovers - do you need reservations for breakfast for Kona Cafe, or will we be OK without them - we will be going in July.

When we want a specific time becuase we have something planned, we always make an ADR. If you are not choosy about time and/or don't mind waiting, you maybe fine with a walkup. ALso, you often can get a fairly early ADR by calling the day before.

Kettle in the room?

Can anyone advise if the Poly has kettle in the room for boiling water? Thanks! We leave in less than 30 hours! Yippee!

No. You will have a coffee brewer and that is the closest. Not being a coffee drinker I don't pay much attention to it but I think it brews a cup at a time. It may be able to heat your water for you though. The other option would be to request a microwave. Plus, the only other "kitchen" item that you will have in the room is a mini-fridge.

Even if there was a kettle, there would be no source of heat to boil the water with.

FWIW.....in many other countries, there's a self contained, plug in tea kettle along with the in room coffee service. I believe that is what was being asked.
And no, there's no tea kettle.

As I sit by my fireplace, happy to have the chill in the air today replaced by its warmth, and dreaming of our trip in about 7 1/2 months, I'm wondering how unbearable the heat & humidity will be mid July? We are planning only 1/2 day in MK; the rest of the time will be spent at the Pool (planning on getting a cabana), in the CL lounge and at restaurants.

We've never gone to WDW in July, but it's been pretty brutally hot in June.

Thanks.

We will be at the Poly a week from tomorrow. We just booked it last week so haven't had much time to do my favorite part, which is a lot of anticipation and planning but looking forward to going. I hope the weather is nice. Can't wait to go!

If you found June brutally hot, July will not disappoint--it too will be brutally hot for you and more rain likely. When our kids were still traveling with us, we usually went in June, but have done July as well. We love the HOT weather, but then again, we always ate lunch somewhere and returned for the heat of the day at the resort for hours of pool time. We would head back out after the sun began to set and the heat was diminishing.

Honestly, I don't know how people do it when they spend the entire day in a park during the summer! We found the pool time a great balance. I suppose though when you only visit once or twice in a lifetime, those people want to make the most of their time. The benefit of visiting every year or a couple times a year is not feeling the need to spend every waking moment at a park.

The "coffee makers" at the Poly are the pod type and will do a cup at a time. The coffee provided is Cuisinart brand. I have never used the pod system as I bring a hot water boiler and make my own real coffee. An immersion heater would work well to make water hot for tea.

Refurb question

What is the schedule for the Poly refurb? We might be switching to the Poly for our May trip.
