Sadly, they have neither. We had both at AKL. I was surprised by this since so many people say that the Poly has the best food offerings. AKL beat them on this trip. The evening apps at the Poly were great, though.

ThanksI have to say the pics i have seen of AKL lounge the food looks awesome. I am just so bummed that we can't do AKL club level with the 5 of us without getting 2 rooms. Well maybe one day when the teens have outgrown our yearly trips..DH, DD8 and i will try it.

Thanks for listening. No-one else would understand .

I love this - especially since I remember that this was going to be your last WDW trip for quite some time

I understand. I will say that our room at the Poly is so much bigger than our AKL room. There are just 3 of us, so we fit fine, but I wouldn't ever want to be there with 5! We have one of the "smaller" Poly rooms and it's really big.

CL Upgrade?

ALOHA! DB and I will be at the Poly in Aug ....staying on the CL for the first time! So EXCITED! I was wondering...we booked the Garden View CL (just couldn't spend the $$ for Lagoon view) but were hoping that maybe we would get upgraded to Lagoon (it's our 3rd anniversary)? Has this happened to anyone or am I just inhaling too much pixie dust.
Thanks!

I thought you might laugh at this one!

We are supposed to take our DD "abroad" next summer, so the chances that I can do this aren't looking too great right now. But DH is having a good time, so maybe (and if not, maybe a day at DLP?). We are spoiled by the IPO now and so I'm having a tough time finding an ok price. But I've always wanted to bring my DD here for Xmas...

Apologies if this has been asked, but I can't seem to find the answer: Do they sell Disney Crocs at the Poly? I can't recall seeing them last trip, but then I wasn't looking for them, sooo... Anyway, my son needs a new pair.

Thanks!

I'd like to plan an anniversary trip for DW and myself. At this point I think I'd like to try either the GF, Poly, CR or YC with concierge level rooms.

Can anyone suggest what I should look at for a Poly reservation? This will be for late November-early December.

Thanks in advance.

We stayed CL at the Yacht Club this past October and one other time a few years ago....we loved it. I love the whole nautical decor and feel of the Yacht Club. Have stayed at the Poly several times but never CL. I tried to upgrade to it for weeks now for our stay starting next weekend but with no luck....they are booked solid.

We have stayed CL at YC, GF, and Poly. They are all very nice. They all have their plusses. We are in a LVCL room at the Poly now, and we have the best view ever. It beats our views at the other 2. Just depends on what matters most to you.

I suggest that you check out the club level thread and the club level lounge photo threads -- it may be helpful in making your decision.

How far out does the current bounceback extend? When we go in 3 weeks I'd love to find a bounceback that we could use the first week in December. DH knows I'm wishing for it but don't know if he'll give his OK.
