I just booked our Poly stay for late April next year! I was putting it off and putting it off b/c I was waiting to see if any more info. would be released about the GCH re-do and I've never booked a reservation without a discount since our very first stay. Total sticker shock!!! Really hoping a discount will come out for that time!

But SO excited to have it officially on the calendar now! It'll be our 4th stay at the Poly and we can't wait to be back!

I am interested in booking the Poly resort for next May, but am hesitant b/c of all of the talk about renovations. I don't want want to get there, and see a bunch of construction. Also, I am wondering when the room renovations (that are supposedly taking place) are supposed to be finished. THanks!

In about 48 hours I will be landing (I hope, barring any delays) and I have a million things to do and for some reason I am sitting here on the DIS

Actually, I am waiting for a phone call but in reality I did give the dog a bath this morning and start laundry and clean my bathroom. I am ready for a nap!

So, my countdown is on! Five fabulous days in Disney

Thanks guys!

I am up early and feeling very motivated Today we are expecting rains and storms which makes it easier to stay inside and get ready to go

I will update on here and give you all your little Poly fix but if you you are on FB come join our Live from the Poly page. It is an open page so you can just look or join and respond if you like We don't do a lot of dining but I will be glad to share some pics and experiences Poly and CL related!

In about a half an hour I will be able to print our boarding passes and see what our coveted position is for SW boarding!

Now, despite telling myself I would not do it, I think I will go check the weather. I bet it says rain every day I do not think in all our trips there has not been a forecast that did not say rain everyday! I have our ponchos ready to get wet!

Off to start the final stretch of getting ready to go! This calls for the creepy Elvis dance

Ahhhhhhhh.......

What a day! First of all, it seemed to drag on forever! Second of all, I better have a flare up of allergies because I am feeling like a cold coming on

Got checked into SW and we have a good boarding position which I was happy about. We are packed, ME tags are attached. I think I have finally figured out what is really needed and what to leave at home so we packed fairly lite but there is plenty of room for extras to bring home

I just got back from dropping the doggies at my friends and the house is clean and laundry done! Everyone has eaten for the night and the kitchen is closed, besides DH and my morning cup of coffee of course! Breakfast will be McDs while waiting for our flight to board!

The limo should be here about 5:30am so we are sacking out early.

It was so cool to see all the new members of our FB page so I added the link in my signature. I will post there but will update here as well.

Well, my flight leaves in 13 hours! Better finish up and get off to bed!

Aloha

Hi Poly fans! I just booked our first Poly stay last night and we will arrive in just 21 days!!! We are surprising DD for her 10th birthday on Sept. 8th. My DS will also be surprised as we are hoping to keep the whole trip a secret until we pick them up from school early on 9/6 and head to the airport. It will be a quick trip--just 9/6 to 9/9 but DD should be very happy. She has always complained that she is the only person in our family who hasn't celebrated her birthday at WDW. We told her it would never happen because her birthday falls just after the start of the school year. Lucky for her Sept. 8th is a Saturday this year--and we decided missing one day of school wouldn't be so bad.

The crazy thing is we were just at WDW earlier this month--left on 8/6. We ate at O'Hanas while we were there and DD kept asking why we've never stayed at the Poly. I told her we probably never would because it's not a DVC resort. Well lucky for her our DVC points are gone for the year and the Annual Passholder discount is in effect that weekend!

Only "bummer" is that there will be no Wishes fireworks while we are there because of the Night of Joy at MK. I'd like to go to Night of Joy but I don't think anyone else in the family wants to--esp. DD and this is "her" trip.

Hoping I can keep the "secret" for 21 more days--and thankful I have my DISBoard friends to share it with!

Jumping in to feed my excitement for our next year's vacation. We've booked the Poly before but canceled the trip, so I'm looking forward to staying there even more than before.

Whamma, what a great surprise!

We are so sad to be checking out tomorrow. It really has been 12 nights in heaven! We are already planning our next trip to stave. Off those post Disney blues.
