How thoughtful of you! Are you in the CSR Business Class?

My Poly concerns no longer have to do with the rooms since they are fresh now and should be in much better condition than pre-rehab. I would love to read your honest opinion of the lounge:

Is it kept neat and tidy?

Is food replenished quickly and available from the beginning to the end of service?

Are you able to get a table at breakfast?

Are there guests dining without shoes or in bathing suits?

Thank you so much! I look forward to your LIVE review. I hope the storm passes quickly and you can head back out to the parks.

Great plan! Is the CSR/BC lounge only open in the morning and evening?

Thanks for remembering . I hope that the weather gets better soon. Have a wonderful trip and I look forward to hearing all about the club offerings. Also can you let me know if they still have the "adult" punch out at night

Have a great time and thanks again

For the most part, people using the lounge pick up after themselves. Unfortunately it's been our experience that there are a few people who tend to be slobs and think the CMs are there to clean up after them. We encountered this mess our trip last October. We even asked the person if they were going to clean up after themselves and she made some excuse that she was unsure if the other people at her table (who had already left) were coming back to clean it up, then promptly left herself. She was quite embarrassed that someone actually had the nerve to call her on it, but still never bothered to clean up.

Our experience over the past 5 stays has been yes they do replenish.

Not sure as we don't use the lounge during the morning offerings, but you could always grab something and head back to your room.

Yes, you get people heading to and from the pool wearing just bathing suits. I've also seen people (and done it myself when in a room close to the lounge) with no shoes in the lounge - or just wearing their PJs. Bottom line is it's not a restaurant.

Thank you, Cdn Friends of Pooh! I appreciate your honest answers. Do they still have trash cans at the KKC? Some CLs have removed them and expect the CMs to keep up with bussing the tables or guests can precariously stack their dishes on a small tray. One CL was told to remove their trash can, but brought it back by popular demand

I hope you have a great vacation! Are you staying CL again?

Yes, this table was next to the kids area with the TV - about 10 steps away from the trash.

Well from what I heard it was 15 Grand Villas off the shore of Tahiti and it would not be part of the initial phase of DVC but a later phase. If it is true they are starting this year (which I don't know I believe) then maybe it is just to prep the under water foundations. I guess we will find out since Disney does not announce schedules very often. That is all the DVC details I can share at this point but save up your money if you want to get into one of those."

I have been wanting DVC at the Poly!!! We LOVE the Poly but we desparately want a separate room for the kids. We find the 1 BDR villas to be perfect for our family and the price is acceptable to us (where the Poly suite is too much).

I think the over the water bungalows are a great idea too. We stayed in one in the real Tahiti for our honeymoon and this will be a great addition to the Poly. Hoping for more family suites/2+ room rentals for the Poly. I just hope the price is not a ridiculous amount

Love the cabanas! I posted pics on page 128 at this link:

http://www.disboards.com/showthread....0#post47662470

We prefer Mauna Kea over Mauna Loa although both are great! As others have stated, you can not request the location for the regular cabanas in advance but you can request it when you arrive (IF you are first there and no one else is in either cabana).

Yes, you get people heading to and from the pool wearing just bathing suits. I've also seen people (and done it myself when in a room close to the lounge) with no shoes in the lounge - or just wearing their PJs. Bottom line is it's not a restaurant.
I have seen people leave messes in other CL lounges and it really irritates me....it's not that hard to throw your trash away . I have also seen guests in bathing suits running back and forth from the pool .

I have read about the trash cans being removed from some lounges and I'm glad they were brought back because I don't agree with the CMs being expected to clean up after everyone. Like Cdn Friends of Pooh said, it's not a restaurant .

Here is my shameless ticker post! I am so excited that Samoa is finished. I need ALL of your good vibes... so that we will get Samoa room requests. I have had a doooooozy of a week. My mom's condo building burned down and we have been running around in circles getting her settled before we leave. She will be in a temporary apartment for at least 6 months. I think I am almost done with everything. Looking forward to a tropical cocktail when I check in. MUCH NEEDED

I hope you get all of your requests . I'm sorry about your mom's condo building, but I'm glad she has a temporary place to stay. Have a great trip and enjoy the Poly .
