thanks. we are staying with the poly. my DH and kids don't like the look of the CR and BLT. I am looking forward to watching wishes and the water parade from the beach!

How early do I need to get there to get a hammock?

Thanks! fingers crossed pool is on schedule for all of us staying there at that time!

I asked Tikiman a while ago on his FB page and he said yes, they are redoing the lounge. So excited to see the new look!

Hey guys-- got a response from Tikiman about the alleged pool room /standard view rumor the WDW CMs were talking about:
The Polynesian only changed its garden view category to standard view but it did not add a new category of pool view. Disney reservations sometimes gets mixed up because other resorts like Yacht Club have pool view category. The price increase might be if you booked before the new rates came out and the new rates are about $20 to $50 a night more than last year depending on the season and day of the week. You may owe more because of that but there is no new room category.

fyi!

Our DD7 is pretty much 48" tall & she can almost touch there (her face goes under, but the water is maybe to the top of her head? - hard to remember exactly). If she would be more comfortable there are life ackets available for free at the marina office. You just have to sign them out with your room card and you can keep them for the length of your stay (just return it to the marina when you're done, don't leave it in your room).



It's been a while since we've used a pack & play, so I'm rusty on the exact size, but I'm thinking if you push the chair right back into the corner & move the automan it should fit over by the patio door (without taking the chair right out).
Just saw a picture on a Poly Pics thread from 2007 that shows depth of 3feet9inches right by the slide! Thanks again for the help!

That's what I thought, thank you for posting an update!!! Did he by chance mention when the increase occured? I booked our trip in Sept, hopefully prices have not increased since then. I still cannot link my reservation on the new website to see the amount due and I don't feel like sitting on hold for an hr just yet, lol. I am able to price out resorts stays and the rates are still the same as when I booked so I'm pretty sure my amount due is the same.

You all will love it!!! Of course it's great watching Wishes in MK but for the nights you don't feel like battling the crowds and just want to relax, watching Wishes from the Poly beach is priceless!!!

As far as the hammock goed, I'm not too sure on that on. We are usually on the beach 30 mins before Wishes and the hammocks are already taken. Plus, they show a nightly Disney movie on the beach so there's already a handful of people there. We always just end up sitting at one of the tables.
