You have made the right choice

I will put it in my perspective...our first trip started off horrible with DD being sick and our second trip we got terrible news from home and DD being REALLY sick at the end of our stay but we still have nothing but wonderful memories and persistent NEED to go back.

Thanks for more pics Ronald, they are incredible

requesting a building

Our first time visit to WDW and the poly will be in Oct. When and how do we request a certain building? After reading the posts I have my heart set on the Tahiti building.

If you have made the reservation yourself, call disney and ask them to add the request onto your reservation. If you have gone through a travel agent, talk to them about adding the request. You can make the request any time you want.

we requested it for our regular room last time...we like to shower in the afternoons and its nice to have fresh towels for the morning. yes, a sweet luxury.

I know the feeling. But I'll tell you that the Poly is really, really lovely, but quite different than the GF.

After staying at the GF a few times, we tried the Poly. And I kept second-guessing that decision in the months before we left. Then we tried RPC at the GF, and I kept second guessing that decision because we had such a wonderful time at the Poly.

Now I think we'll just go back and forth, taking turns...

Like I said, they are very, very different from one another, but I like them both. I hope you do, too!

Does anyone have experience ordering a special treat to be delivered to the room? I was thinking about a dessert sampler, or a tray of the chocolate covered strawberries, or ?? Is that done through the in-room dining?

Yes, there were way fewer people than during our previous Poly visit 10 years ago in early August...but crowds picked up everywhere by the start of Labor Day weekend.
