Yeah I am thinking the same, my first trip to the poly and the impression I get is once you go poly you never go back lol.

I already had my ADRs so I don't need any assistance with that - anything else I should be thinking about asking them/having them help me with? It's my first CL stay so this is all new to me.
They sometimes don't at all! I make my room requests though IPO. Aside from the Grand, I've never had a problem getting what I wanted. I should however note that my requests at the Poly are simply a third floor room. The CL staff assigns rooms for the CL guests so you should absolutely do it through them. I have them book my cabana for me. Last year I had them purchase my MNSSP tickets for me.

Are you excited for your first CL stay?!

I want to get my son's haircuts at the barber shop while we are there. Should I contact IPO to make that reservation or just call directly?

We made it! In Tokeleau garden view with the quiet pool just outside our balcony.

The poly pool is open as advertised as well as the slide.

Room is in ok condition. Fridge was a little warm, and the shower head has seen much better days. The cabinets at the front of the room are showing some wear and could be replaced but nothing that I would call bad.

We can see the castle down the side of the building (with the crane in place) but given we're paying GV prices can't really complain. Waiting for everyone to refresh from the trip down before we head out.

Oh...well at least it's not "bad" I guess...it's cool that you can see the castle though! Have fun!!!

To get your fridge to work.. Open the cabinet door that hold the fridge and leave it open..

Okay so here goes my crazy plan to save $100 on my family trip..
Originally I booked CL Poly, regular dining, 8 days park hopper for 5 people.
With the 30% spring rate.

Here's what I changed to.

With the advice of the super DisDads podcast host Ajritz
Bought annual passes.
Booked poly cl with the AP discount.
And changed to quick service dining.
Then we will get the Tables in Wonderland card which will save us 20% on table service.
After all that it comes to a little over $100 cheaper.

Now, I have a DisDads convention in January! .. Saving $500 in tickets for me and the wife. And we are going to go back with the family 9 days earlier than this year!! Saving over $1600 in tickets!!

That's a total savings of over $2100 in one year!

Yes I'm excited! I thought there was a general Room Assigner at resorts, I didn't know IPO handled CL rooms. We have a Deluxe CL room at BC, and there are only 6 of those in the resort, so a room request is probably not an option. I'll get whichever one is open for our dates!

Can I renew my AP with them once I get there?
