We stayed there twice and hated the dark rooms. Glad to see they're not gloomy. May have to give Poly another try.

Ok, I'm still undecided on the overall new look but in the meantime there is something that I can't seem to figure out...is there some type of blanket/comforter on the bed or is it just a sheet?

We stayed at the Poly in 2009 and while that was a magical stay for us (we had 2 ressies and got a MK view upgrade on the 1st ressie and then CL MK view upgrade on the second), I felt meh about the resort. These pics have me wanting to give it another go!!

Those towel bars are very odd? I am just,ehh on this. A bit bland. More tropical would have been nice. The bathroom looks a little dorm roomish from one angle. I will have to see more. Perhaps video? Thank you so much for posting! Have fun!

I was wondering the same thing. I'm one that does sleep under the comforters at hotels because I like the "weight" on me...even in July. I may have to pack my own blankets!

Editing: I just noticed that they kept the Tom "Thor" Thordarson prints in the guest rooms. Glad to see that they kept them! I just wish that I could buy a print of "Hukilau" or "Polynesian Day."

I think it's "triple sheeting"... there's a sheet over the mattress, a sheet to cover you, a blanket on top of that, and another sheet over the very top. This is considered more sanitary because they can wash everything more easily instead of the duvets which (to my understanding) weren't washed between every guest... Someone correct me if I'm horribly wrong!!

The new triple sheeting that Disney is going to will not have a comforter or duvet. It will be as described above. The top sheet will have a slight design to it as seen in the close up photos, but it will not be heavy.

I'm kinda feeling the same way

Eeew! We always removed that giant duvet for that very reason. And every day the maid would put it back on the beds. Ew!!

The first few pics I saw were very disappointing. Some of the wider views of the room make it look better than I expected. Still, they seemed to have toned down the Polynesianish style. In the bathroom, aside form the brown wall paper the room looks like any hotel anywhere. I think they went for vanilla and got vanilla, vanilla.

Some of the best vanilla in the world comes from Polynesia! Lol

Same! I'd put it away every night and the maid would find it and put it back every day, same with the decorative pillow on the bed, which I am sure was never washed.

Agree. The only thing that really caught my eye was the brown wallpaper.

Agreed. And the pillow was just plain strange.
