Hi, Courtney! You are going to LOVE the poly! DBF and I stayed there for 5 nights in May as a graduation celebration trip, and it was amazing. I really did not expect to fall in love with it as much as I did. But now, I can't imagine ever wanting to stay anywhere else (which is kind of bad, because my Disney resort wish list is a bit long!).

I don't know which view you will have, but having a view of the castle out your window is truly magical. I don't know how much time I spent on the balcony just looking at it. It is a beautiful view! But honestly, I doubt there is any bad view in the entire resort.

We loved being able to walk to the TTC as well....that was so convenient for getting to and from Epcot. And of course, having Dole Whip at the resort isn't too bad either!

As you can tell, I really, really love the Poly I think you made a great decision. It will be perfect for a honeymoon!

The Poly!! Excellent choice!
I was so sure you'd be staying at POFQ, given how much you love it there. I should have realized that a Disneymoon would call for a special place!

Are you thinking about requesting a specific longhouse? I got too confused looking at the Tikiman website and couldn't figure out where we'd want to stay. So we're just gonna wing it.

YAY for you and Miguel!

WOO HOO for the Polynesian!! What a perfect place for a honeymoon. I like that you get a bit of that tropical beach feel as well. I think you picked the best resort for a relaxing 10 night honeymoon!

I love your choice! I'm sure it will be perfect for you. You should set up one of those 30 min sessions with a photopass photographer at the poly, too!

The Poly definitely gives you the best of both worlds-- the tropical and Disney!! The perfect combination! You will have a wonderful time-- can't wait to hear your ideas to make it even more special! Are you the type that would plan to surprise Miguel, or would he be in on the plans??

Wow the Polynesian is a great choice! I had a feeling you guys might pick that resort

I've not visited the Poly before but we're having a meal at Kona cafe next trip.. can't wait to see inside! I've heard that the lobby 'smells' amazing because of the water feature?!

As much as I love POFQ, I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to pass up the Poly for our honeymoon! I'm can't wait to read your TR after your trip to see how your disneymoon there goes!

I've browsed the tikiman site briefly too, and I couldn't figure out a what longhouse we might like either! I guess I've got plenty of time to figure that out though!

I definitely feel like it is the best of both worlds! We get to have Disney and the tropics all at once!
