We've been heading down to WDW every May since 2003 (and more recently October as well) and the most we received for an AP discount was 40%. The past few years, it's been more like 25-35% for our dates.

Hi All! Question for those of you who have rented a cabana. When we visit next year we are definitely planning a resort day - weather permitting. I would like to rent a cabana for that day. Is there any limit on how many people can use the cabana. (I read on a post that the cabanas at the water parks are limited.) We are going to have 6 adults and 4 children. Based on the seating - we can all fit and I am sure that most times people will be coming and going. I really don't want to have to rent 2 cabanas. Our other option is the premium cabana - but that is the same cost as renting 2.

The shower is on the opposite wall opposite the sink. More of a "galley" set up, so-to-speak. Walk in and (depending on the room it is the reverse of this) on the left is the shower and on the right is the sink, vanity long against the right wall. Toilet is in the back right. I hope this is making sense. I doubt this makes any difference to the person who asked, since it's a privacy issue, but just thought I'd point out that the bathrooms are set up differently.
Yes, the set up is slightly different in the Fiji building, just turned around.

We had 2503 and it has a full view of the castle and a partially obstructed view of Wishes (tree). I loved the location just a few doors down from the lounge but, as I'm sure you know, since it was second floor room it didn't have a balcony.

Yes, there is a limit of 6 for the cabanas. I don't know how strictly they enforce that. There is an attendant that comes by fairly frequently to see if you need anything. I don't know if they would keep track or bother to enforce the limit, but they do have one.

Last year a family tried to rent the cabana next to us and they were going to split it with another family but they were told there's a 6 person limit.

hot tub/ renovation info

Can anyone link me to some of the hot-tub/ reno rumors that I've read in this thread? i didn't really see anything on tikiman or even here. Planning for a late feb 2013 trip and don't want to play there if the pool (or more of resort) is going to be down for a major renovation.

ps- where can I find the signature countdown tickers <noob>

Looks like we will be either trying to rent both regular cabanas or the premium? Any idea what the limit on the premium is? And I wonder if the hot tub rumors are true if they will relocate the premium cabana or just get rid of it?

I think they are all rumors for now. I don't think anyone will know for sure until later this year. If they do major renovation I would think it would just be the GCH as most, if not all, of the longhouses have now been renovated. I know Fiji, where we always stay has been renovated and when we were there in 2010 they were renovating one of the other longhouses right next to Fiji. There's also a rumor that they will start a DVC at the Poly later this year! I hope they're right! I can't wait for that!

You can find a ticker at disticker.com. I believe that's the website I used as there are a few other Disney Ticker websites.

Polynesian in January - Cooler Weather

Planning trip Jan 19-29... With possible cooler weather in the evening, is this still a good time to stay at the Polynesian?

Does the Spirit of Aloha show still go on? Is the Volcano Pool still fun? I know it's heated and I'm thinking the slide will be great because it's not much walking out of water (in cold air) to get back on the slide again.

Anytime is a good time to stay at the Poly!

Just be prepared for both warm and cold weather and you will be fine!

Well... last January we made ourselves use the pool, because it is so fabulous. But we would have enjoyed it a lot more in warmer weather (though we probably enjoyed the parks more in the cooler temps.)
Could be warmer for you though ... it all depends on the fronts.

I've done the Poly in winter three times and loved it. We only swam midday as it felt too cold for swimming in the evening for us. Although there were usually always people in the pool so it couldn't have been that bad.

SOA does get canceled if it gets below 50 (I think? it's somewhere around there)
