Your trip will fly by. I don't know where the last month went!!
Especially going back to school you'll be there before you know it. Are you pulling your kids out for long?
The only time we ever did that was the first week of June a few years ago. I wasn't really concerned b/c by that time of year there's really not much going on anyway.
Have a fantastic trip
We are pulling them out for 4 days- they already have the Friday off and its the week prior to a festival we have here so its usually a slow week! We've never done it but not that concerned. Our school is pretty understanding of these situations!

Anyone know the nearest spa (not hot tub, but place to book a massage!) to the Poly since GF will be closed?

And is there anywhere that someone is posting the month's movies for the Poly?

Thx!

The only other resorts that have full-service spas on property is Saratoga Springs and the Dolphin.

HOWEVER, if you are just wanting a massage there is a small spa that does massages and a few other things at the Wilderness Lodge or the Contemporary. They are both Niki Bryan spas.

You can use the GF pools and such if you like. The Poly does not have a hot tub.

The Poly does not have a 'spa' (hot tub) but in the volcano pool, it does have a section with some jets in it. And you can use the hot tub at the Grand Floridian Health Club (I don't think you can use GF hot tubs, just the one at the health club, since that would be pool hopping.)

My DH did use the service at WL and he said it was fine but I definitely want the 'spa' experience if I'm going to pay to go somewhere. No worries, lots of other stuff do!!

Actually... I do believe all Poly guests can use the amenities at the GF? Or is it just the spa and health club?

You could always just take a day and go over to SSR! You could take the bus to DTD then take the boat over!

Thanks!
I've personally had the steak, mashed potatoes and asparagus, awesome--My DH loved the scallops,shrimp & veggies (dinner menu), Our last visit I noticed some items not on menu anymore, but that's what we had and it was wonderful. Our lunch visit I had the Island Chicken sandwich--delicious--- daughter ate Club sandwich and son had childs meal-- hamburger w/fries (big size) and a Pina Colava for me, of course!!!! Yum, can't go wrong.

Hello -

The family and I will be staying at the Poly for our upcoming trip and a friend of mine has said that there are speakers under the water in the pool?? Any truth to this?

They do offer it, it has to be scheduled in advance and I just found out about Grand Floridian Spa closing for 18 months (sad) surprised because I was just there and no one mentioned it and we were talking about rehabs. Mary does wonderful massages, if you can request her, you won't be dissappointed! Enjoy!!
