Smile Dear carlnix3o,

Thanks for the ferry info. I'm glad we were pre warned as not to stand in line for the TTC boats when it is busy at closing, which is when we may have used them to come home from evening dinners. Appreciate all the great tips prior to leaving.

I need a little clarification on the cabanas, if you don't mind What comes with a regular cabana and what comes with a deluxe? The pictures on page 1, post #6, are those regular or deluxe cabanas? And the price for the deluxe is not listed on the first page either, is that correct? TIA for any info!!

I read elsewhere on the DIS that the GF DVC is supposed to be done for late 2013.

The pictures on the first page are kind of confusing because they mix the two grades of cabanas together. The two large pictures (one at the beginning of the cabana pics & one at the end) are the premium cabana. All of the smaller pictures are the standard cabanas. With the standard cabana you get a ceiling fan, small fridge (stocked with soda & water), a fruit platter, a phone, an attendant, flat screen tv, loungers, a table, & cushioned chairs. They are in a raised area with a rope that you can put across the steps to keep others from entering the area. I believe with the deluxe cabana you get furniture that is more like living room furniture than lounge furniture, a tv, fridge, etc. You also get an outdoor dining table on a patio area and a little roped off section of beach with some loungers. The last price I saw was $638 for a full day & $319 for a half day.

Hi, everyone! I've been lurking here for a couple of months, reading all the posts. We head to the Poly for the first time on June 12th. This will be first trip for twins - DD5 and DS5. We took DD7 to Disney World when she was 4, but left the twins at home with grandparents. We are planning to surprise the kids with the trip, not telling them until the day we leave.

My question is about the day bed. Will it be made up as a bed since we have 5 people in the room, or will we need to make it up ourselves? We are not staying club level. I think that they will all fight over it if it appears as a bed, but if they think they have to sleep on a sofa, they aren't going to be too excited about it!

Thanks for all the help you have given me without even knowing it!

The day bed will appear as a couch when you come into the room, even with a party of 5 (no sign of sheets!), but when you fold it down you will see that it is already made up and ready to sleep in. Our kids always fight over it! Good luck with that! (they report it is quite comfortable) The nice thing is it just kind of folds down and remains the size of a twin bed and doesn't pull out like a sofa bed that takes up a lot of floor space. You can leave it out like a bed for your entire stay and it doesn't disrupt the space in room at all.

Scarlett24, I will be on the lookout for the lime green mickey head... I would love to meet a fellow Poly lover... I'm always getting the old "disney again" from friends and fam back home when they ask where we're vacationing... I say, don't ask me then.. Have you started packing? I think I'm starting tomorrow...

Get to polyp in two weeks. Don't worry about comments about your trips. I get them every year. I just say we are going to our secondhome and no one ever replies. Enjoy

Not a problem. My wife has knee problems and sometimes needs an ECV. We waited in line for MK departure on the Poly launch only to hear she can't ride this! Wasn't a very good night. The TTC launch is a big boat but it is packed during those times. We resorted to leaving 1 hour prior to closing riding the monorail and watching Wishes on the poly beach.

Good news - IPO has just confirmed that they have been able to book the cabana for my sister for our trip during the last week of October. Sounds like the construction/hot tub installation won't be starting by then, or it won't be affecting the main pool anyways.

Wishuponastar, we have not started packing yet, but soon. Only a few days away now! We will have our 3 kids with us, an 8 year old boy and a 5 & 2 year old girls. As far as your family and friends not understanding about Disney, I have an aunt I am close with that is just as obsessed with WDW as I am! Lucky me. Hope to meet up with you guys soon.

I got that for awhile, now at the beginning of the year I just get asked, "When do you go to Disney this year?"
