The RFID locks already went on the inside doors back in October. There wasn't one on our patio door, although we were on the third floor. I can't say about the first floor rooms.

Well, you guys convinced me. I just put in for a first floor room in Tokelau, quiet pool side! My DD has mobility issues so it would be nice not to deal with the elevator/stairs every time we wanted to leave. Thanks, fellow Poly lovers!

Time for me to get my Poly thread mojo going again. Booked our May SWW trip today with GP discount and saved about $2000 from my saved rack rate offer. Pretty happy with that. We will be staying just one night in March before our cruise too. Can't wait to be back!!

18 days! yay. Desparately need a Poly fix. Work is bad--I requested a handicap accommodation (due to MS) and was denied. Employer claiming it's an essential function of the job, but have accommodated people lower down on the salary scale. So since I refuse to live under the strees of a lawsuit, I'll have to quit. Too bad. Trying to keep working cause my cognitive function is fine, just my body that MS is kicking the daylights out of. Anyway, the trip is already paid for and air tickets non-refundable, so we're going! I know I'll feel better at Disney and the Poly!

Megsie1000--see you there!!

Princessap--we love TPV but no kids with us. I just love sitting there with morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening.

Ginchicago--I agree the Poly seems sweeter with a discount--for us it's the military discount.

Here now, spent the afternoon in a hammock with a coconut mojito! We're in Tahiti, it's lovely - 2 minutes to GCH and TTC, right in the middle. Parks are still crowded. We're hoping the crowds start to thin out tomorrow. Keep counting down, you'll all be here before you know it

Ps - you know the best thing about the GF? The view of the Poly

I wish I had booked TPV when I first booked back in October. Now there are none available with or without discount
Does that mean it will be really busy?

I'm so sorry to hear about your job. I have MS...have had it since '98 and it's a ***** Disney will definitely help you look forward to something fun! Will you be getting a ECV or wheelchair for the parks?

Does anyone know anything more about the refurb schedule ? We will arrive on April 27th. Staying LV . I'm wondering if requesting Tuvalu will be possible with the refurb going on. I know Tahiti is also a LV building but I really feel that I need to be closest to the GCH and pools if possible. Having some health issues. If it is a far walk to the TTC we can always take the monorail and transfer to the EPCOT monorail at the TTC right?
Also, does anyone else know of other buildings that are LV and convenient? Do most LV rooms overlook the castle ? Or just certain buildings?
Thanks for any help.... Our 1st time at the POLY and getting so excited!!!

Hi. Not sure what state you live in, but you might want to check out the Div. of Vocational Rehab office near you. They provide worksite accommodations.

Hawaii is closing for renovation for the next month and a half. I posted the renovation schedule for each longhouse from Tikiman a few pages ago.

We tried to get CL for our upcoming trip but couldn't
