Seriously!!! Checked the extended forecast for next week and its calling for rain. I have lived in FL before and know that the weather changes quickly and it will more than likely rain at least once, but this shows 60% Thunderstorms with Dark Green shading...

Booo!

Consider this my "rain, rain, go away..." dance:

I'm considering throwing in an extra cabana day. We loved it so much last year. I can't imagine sitting by the pool all day without one! Night time isn't a big deal because there's no sun to hide from but during the day there's nothing better than having your own little area to retreat to complete with drinks and fruit!

And you know that no matter how crowded the pool is you'll have a chair!

Yup! I've already decided to do it as a surprise but I haven't picked a day yet.

Just got back a few days ago from our first ever Poly vacation! What a great resort. The grounds are just breathtaking, as is the location.

I am already planning my next trip. I am sad to be home.

Welcome back! The poly grabs you and never lets go! Now all you have to do is look at your photos and watch for discounts on the poly!

Am I allowed to ask a non-Poly question here? The rest of the DIS overwhelm me!

What are your thoughts on EMH? Two friends at work swear by them, but I'm reading online to avoid the parks with EMH since they're so busy. Does it make a difference if we have hoppers?

Anywhere online to see what days we should do/avoid which parks?

Thanks! 2 1/2 days!!!

Only go to the EMH Park if you are actually going to take advantage of the EMHs. Later, when the crowds starts to get heavy, use your hopper to head to another park! The EMH park will get very busy, but it is good to go to that park for the actual EMHs & then leave. Make sense?

We have always avoided EMH parks and had great luck. You can use the crowd calendar at www.easywdw.com and it is free with lots of explaination too. Have a great vacation

We like to take advantage of the morning EMH's. We have always been able to ride our must-do's at virtually walk-on except TSM, which was maybe 10 minutes. On EMH days we are easily done in the parks by early afternoon and heading back to the Poly for some resort time, avoiding big crowds. We have been at MK a few times during evening EMH and those are crowded.
