We loved the Poly! So Many ways to get to and from resort. We did online check in got there at 11:00am and our room request was met and room ready. No wait at all. We stayed on the 3rd floor of the Tahaita building. Not far from anything. Our view was wonderful.

Thanks!
It's possible if they aren't sold out for those rooms when you arrive. Make sure you mention the anniversary when you book and if you already booked and didn't mention it, call back. Also mention it when you arrive! Smile too! CM's tend to be more willing to go the extra mile when they see how happy you are.

Yes, we were upgraded last July! It was our 10th wedding anniversary and we were upgraded from GV to LV. We had room 3502 and it was the best room we've had in Hawaii so far. Just steps away from the lounge with a picture perfect view of the lagoon/castle. Make sure you get the anniversary pins and wear them. Everyone will wish you a "happy anniversary"! It's a lot of fun!!

Here's to hoping some of us meet at our favorite resort. We have so many overlapping days, it's bound to happen.

I will be the chubby white lady (sorry in advance for my EXTREME paleness that may blind those close by) with brown hair accompanied by 2 adorable daughters Grace(10), Caroline(8), and DH (6ft1" with curly light brown hair and a beer belly).

We leave on Thursday. Safe travels to those leaving soon.

O.K. I'm having doubts about our travel dates.

Booked for November 15th - 22nd, but UG has some pretty high numbers during that time. November is typically cooler (which we like) and most of the Christmas decorations are up (again something we like).

Thinking about switching to October 25 - November 1, UG numbers are lower for that week and weather should be warmer (good for swimming). Would be there for Halloween, and would miss out on the Christmas decorations - plus the kids would miss Halloween here at home. We'd probably do MNSSHP though to make up for that (we've done MNSSHP before and it was great).

Opinions/thoughts/suggestions?

Oh yeah, the reason for these dates is also because we have a 40% pin code.

Thanks

I haven't been during either of those times, so I can't comment on experience, but I know my 6 year old would LOVE to be there for MNSSHP - she would gladly give up Halloween here at home for that. I specifically asked her her opinion and she said she would rather go for Halloween than see the Christmas decorations (now if the choice was to actually be there at Christmas, it might be a different story! )

BTW, 40% code - SWEET!!

Good luck deciding!
