Oh, and I've decided that it is going to be warm enough! We've been Pres. Week for the past two years and the first year we were a tad chilly (OK, we were downright cold, but the New Englander in me can't admit it) and the second year, it was in the low 80s and sunny all week. Ah-mazing.

As far as the crowds that week, two words: rope drop!
I'm hoping for 80's. Yeah. I better plan on rope drop. Gotta get the rest of the crew on board.

Hello everyone.!

Well I made my reservations for BLT one bedroom villa. Did all the research. Watched videos posted by YouTube members. Checked out all the amenities. Subscribed to the FAQ for CR and then was accosted by my wife and teens. "WE WANT TO STAY AT THE POLY AGAIN"! If I wanted to live to see another day, I had to make yet another phone call and listen to the "are you sure you want to change your resort" from the WDW Travel.

Here I am again.. we know the resort so well that we could check in, get a bite to eat, and go for a swim while sleeping.

Here is my long winded subscribe post.

Checking in June 1st to the 9th 2012 CLTPV

After much research on this thread as well as Tikiman's site, I think I should request Tahiti, 2nd or 3rd floor? I realize these are only requests Having never been there I'm not sure this is the best one to request. I would appreciate any advice the experts can give me Thanks!
Hello! I as a DisDad of 3 teen monsters find the poly is really a great choice for us. The rooms are large. The theme is magical and the pool is perfect for older kids. Oh and did I mention Captain Cooks 24 hour yummyness? The rooms are large enough for my DD17 DS15 and DD14. Don't stress yourself about the room choice.

When are you going? Maybe we could arrange a dismeet/teen meet

Disney World, Polynesian, Jiminy Cricket here we come only 13 days left. House hunting is majorly stressing me out. Sure looking forward to this vacation. Kinda nervous, don't want to disappoint my niece and nephew. 12 & 16. Hope they have as much fun as I do.

We are considering a stay at poly for first time this fall. We have stayed at WL and GF prior. My five year old son saw the poly on monorail and the tiki torches...he has spoken of little else since. Ha!

My question is which longhouse should I request should I be lucky enough to have the request granted! And any to try and avoid....

Our priorities...

Clean, updated room. two sinks a bonus...
Location to monorail and ttc (we come back for naps and will spend 2 days at Epcot, 3 at MK, 1 at HS)

We will not use pool.

we would do garden view based on budget!

Hi Carl! I know what you mean. We stayed at VWL last May and it was nice but I really missed the Poly. I was lucky enough to go again last year in October. This year, I am planning a big family trip so we are staying at a moderate (probably CBR) and then my DH will come for a long weekend but I am thinking of trying a new resort We were thinking BWI so we could be near Epcot. Not sure when I'll get back to the Poly, but I always will

All my Poly peeps know how much I love to stay in touch, whether or not I have a Poly trip planned. I'm also thinking we need a photo to remind us of what it is all about -

Carl! (snicker) I can't believe it! And I don't blame you a bit! I do love the Polynesian as much as your sweet family does. What will happen to your "going to CR in June thread" though? Just curious.

Shhhhh.. Poly FAQ don't know!!
I am going to maintain it with all the love and care that I would who's going to the poly in June. We will just be a very short ride on the monorail. Heck we are neighbors! So I dedicated myself to it.. I am going to see it through.
