HS - 8 am breakfast - Park opens at 9am
AK - 8 am breakfast - Park opens at 9am
MK - 8 am BBB appt - Park opens at 9am

Any tips on the best mode of transport to each place?

Thanks!
I think this got lost so I wanted to ask again.

I have not used them, but everyone says there are early morning buses that will get you to a pre-opening ADR at the parks. Of course, to MK, you can just take the monorail - it will be running in time.

Yes, there are buses to the parks especially for the character breakfasts. I think they start around 7 am but check with the lobby concierge to be sure.

Okay, so I bit the bullet and finally booked our Poly room for October I ended up booking a tpv room because I just don't want to be second-guessing myself later about it. I really wanted tpv, but I wasn't wanting to pay the price...needless to say, I caved:

So now that I have truly committed to the Poly, I have a couple questions:

1. Is the daybed very comfy? My 16-year old ds will most likely be the one using it. He's 6' and has a big build to him. Would he be comfy on this bed or do we need to figure something else out?

2. Which longhouse would be most centrally located and still offer a tpv?

Thanks for your help! Now I have to get past how much this trip will cost us and find my excitement over going to WDW again

I can comment on the day bed. Both of my DSs have slept in the day bed at the Polynesian and both have said that it was comfortable. They're 22 and 19, and have been sleeping in the day beds at Disney (Grand Floridian and Polynesian) since they were 13 and 10, and neither mind taking their turn in it. They're both close to 6' tall and have big builds, too. I think your DS16 will be fine.

P.S. On this past trip DS's DGF slept in the day bed and she thought it was very comfy.

Tuvalu has TPV (with a lovely view of the GF) and is very close to the GCH and volcano pool. It does not have balconies on the second floor though, so if you want outdoor space request first or third floor as well!

Well I must say this thread is starting off with some great pictures! I remember when I booked my dream POLY stay in Feb, I read I think 150 pages, and loved every post, but especially the pictures. I could just not get enough of the pictures, and still can't!

Thanks Mdrob for posting the fantastic pics, some I have never seen before, now that is saying something

We booked our trip to celebrate DD's 16th birthday back in January and I've been avoiding threads like this because it was still too far away. Now that we're just over 4 months out I'm loving every picture and piece of information!

On a whim I called this morning at I was able to get the TPV room!!!! Now I am not changing my room at all again! I just pray for that they will come out with AP rates and we can change to that so we can save a little more money.
Thanks for the advice. I'll keep trying.

No flavored creamers in CL--not sure if Captain Cook's have flavored creamer.

We have used the blended juice made in the CL lounge as a mixer for rum. They don't put that juice out until later in the day, perfect timing for swim time and rum. Other than that, there is orange and cranberry juices.
