I have been lurking on this page with envy since my trip this year won't be to the Poly We just recently became DVC members and Bought at BWV. As happy as I was to join DVC, I just knew that I would miss the Polynesian, but I guess the Tiki Gods shined down on me because I was just able to book 5 nights next door at the Grand Floridian Villas So I will see you soon Polynesian

I've seen a couple references to Tikiman's site. Can someone share this with me? I have questions about requesting longhouses.

I'm missing Saturday . Of course, every night they have a selection of cheeses and crackers, vegetables and dip, pineapple (and maybe other fruit?), hummus and pita bread, and kids' choices like pb&j uncrustables.

I know these are all subject to change, but I remember having the beef wellington on a Friday night back in Sept 2011 (it was fantastic ), so maybe they don't really change them all that frequently?
Thank you!

Just type tikiman into Google. It'll be the first link.

So, I logged into my email about 1 month ago and I see an email titled "Disney Destinations Confirmation". My DH is a CM but we live in CT and he has NEVER reserved a Disney vacation without my input. I'm the Disney nut...not him. So, I call him at work and say, "What have you done?". His response: "there is an awesome CM discount out for this summer, so I thought why not?". He then tells me that he booked 10 days at WL CL because that was the only CL available under the discount.

Well, we just went to WDW in April and we've never done 2 trips in one year. But, he sells me on the fact that it will be really affordable with the discount.

The next day he calls me from work and says that AKL CL is now available and since that has a bigger pool maybe the kids would like that better. I say "OK".

Then, a week later he calls me and says, "Guess what??!! The Poly is now available under the discount. But, it's not CL. It is TPV. I know you've always wanted to stay there, do you want me to change the reservation again?" I say, "yes, definitely!"

Well, now this past weekend, he makes one more call and guess what? Now, CL at the Poly is available under his discount, but the only category available is CL TPV. "What do you want me to do?" he asks. And then he adds, "Come on, when will we ever be able to afford Poly CL TPV?? I can't guarantee that I'll ever get a discount like this again." And so.....

We are headed to Poly CL TPV in just over one month from now!!! And, our 'affordable trip' has turned into a bit of a splurge even with the discount. We could never afford that room at rack rate!

So, now I'm off to read all of this thread. It is our 1st time at the Poly and I am super excited! But, I'm also a little nervous because it's still pretty expensive even with the discount.

So, help me out Poly lovers...tell me that it will be money wisely spent! Of course it will...right??

Congrats on the Poly . It will definitely be money well spent (IMO). We've stayed at the Poly before but not CL (we're trying CL in December) and I have read nothing but great things about it....especially the view from the lounge . Have a great trip......you're going to love the Poly .

That is so cool! We have never stayed at the Poly or CL, but we are staying Poly CL in September. I hope you have a wonderful time. Please post what you think about it when you get back. I love hearing and seeing pictures before we go.

Tikiman reported on FB that the second cabana is back, but with no furniture in it yet.
