I can't believe I'm asking this I swore I would NEVER do laundry on vacation.
I believe it is $2 to wash and either $1.50 or $2 to dry....

Also related to this, does the Poly laundry still require coins? Last year at CR, we could use our room key to charge it , which was so easy. It would be great if the Poly has this now.


I am so excited!!!!
We are so close to our trip! Who cares about laundry!!?

Okay...not happy that the maximum occupany for the regular cabanas is only 6, especially since there is a total of 8 sitting options (two cushioned lounge chairs, one love seat (2) and four chairs with two foot stools. We have a party of 8, which includes 3 kids - two of which are 12 and 5 and will probably pre-occupied with the pool and arcade.

So now I am thinking of renting the two regualar cabanas for 4 hours. I think it is to much space, but I don't like the location of the Premium Cabana and it would be cheaper. Two cabanas at $110 each for four hours.

It just stinks because that is $110 of Banana Cabanas, Lapu Lapus, and Mai Tais down the drain for space we probably won't need.

I just don't know......

Enjoy and Happy Early Birthday!!!

Checking in here, had to reschedule our November GF trip to December due to DHs work. Only MK resort available with our discount was Poly. It's been 7 years since our last, less than magical stay there. I know that there has been a major room renovation since then, convince me that the rooms are still in good shape for this visit. Our last stay gave us a room with a sopping wet carpet that we were not given until 5:45 after checking in around 1 and going to lunch. Volcano pool wound up closed alll the stay due to repeated diaper incidents. It's taking a lot to convince DH that this visit will be better!
