Thanks! I actually went into the Online Check In this morning and it now lists all the longhouses under requests. It also has other options like Ground Floor and stuff. You can pick up to 2 requests. It's pretty cool!

Well, it's been 2 years, but I am happy to be back following the POLY thread. We stayed at the POLY for the first time in October 2010 and my husband is now Poly spoiled and won't stay anywhere else! But, that means, we won't be taking a trip every year now because we have 3 little boys and 5 people at the POLY for a week makes for trips that are beyond our finances. I am hoping for our next trip to be October 2013. I've been tucking away money in a milk jug hidden in the laundry room. So, I can't wait to catch up on this thread and live vicariously through you all!

Since our first stay at the Poly, my dh has been spoiled too...lol It is so hard not to get spoiled after staying there. I just had my 3rd boy which makes things harder to go every year (this year was the first year we missed

Today I was a lot more pre vacation productive than I anticipated

While getting my house back in order after our summer of softball and doing 15 tons of laundry, I did end up calling the IPO and making a few ADRs which I got exactly at the time and day I wanted which was awesome. I also discussed with them the "welcome back gift" from Mickey and Minnie which is trip tradition. Now I have to think of something to do for DH for our 15th anniversary

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Especially from you guys on the thread. Cabana rental is out as he would not enjoy that and he is not a golfer.

DD dug through her "Disney" box and has her pile of stuff started and I even pulled out my Disney box to start placing things in which normally happens 6 months before a trip

I did print off easy WDW suggestions for the days will be there so I will glance through those and DD and I are going to make some maps tomorrow. I hope they arrive before we leave though! I also anticipate that I will be getting Mickey Mail soon as well

So I guess I am in the Disney trip mode now! One month from now I will be watching Wishes

I will definitely be posting to the Poly facebook page and DD and I will both be doing Instagram and Twitter as well while we are there so I will make sure I share every detail for all you Poly lovers

It feels good to be back! We are going for a quick 4 night trip but I am happy to be able to go! I thought for sure it would not be in the cards this year!

Happy planning for your trip.

My dh is also spoiled with the Poly.

The first time I took him he cringed at the thought of paying (OK I was paying) to stay there so we stayed at the WL. Next trip was the Poly & he was hooked.

He hates Disney per say but begs to eat or go on certain rides but he said if he has to go there the Poly is the way to go. I was trying to get him to stay at the BC next year but he said no...phew...since I love the Poly too.

Very productive!!!

I would suggest a cake? We have a lovely one created by Chef Brian for a dinner at Contemporary for our 3rd anniversary (check my dining review for pics in sig) in my husband's favorite flavor combo (chocolate and peanut butter...) It was PERFECT and he was super pleased!

We are at the Poly right now and they told us Tiokelau is being renovated, beginning during our stay. We requested in Sept. 2011 and again prior to arrival. You may want to call and check in or provide another choice. Sorry o be the bearer of bad news!
