That's me! I had no intention of staying at POLY. It was not on my radar but when I knew that they could not come through on the room I booked I call and they offered. I jumped at the chance becaue it probably will never happen again. The next trip I am heading to POR.

There is some scaffolding where the waterfall should be and it's not running and there were few people in it as it was an overcast windy day. Awesome weather for visiting a park.
Thanks for this update. I was wondering myself.

Can we please not go down this road again?



The problem with POR is that people booked rooms that are being upgraded and the rooms are not ready, so Disney has been shifting these guests to deluxe resorts.
I have stayed at POR and love it. I was moved for our upcoming trip since the renovations are behind. Am I excited to stay Poly? Of course, and I'm sure any other person that got a call from Disney asking if they can upgrade you wouldn't say no. If you would you are crazy.

Not a problem. I'll be happy to answer any questions I can if you have em.

Right now there's about 50 14-16 year old argentinian girls staying there. They're quiet for the most part but hard to miss if you happen to be in a park with them.

Absolutely - I agree.

But there's been lots of "encouraging" going on to call IN to Disney to get an upgrade - not being offered anything first BY Disney. The OP came right out & said they called in to Disney, Disney didn't call them. That put the gleam in the eye of several others now that have calls in...it's true the squeaky wheel gets the grease but it's getting a little out of hand.

nobody encouraged me to call, But I had booked for something based on the Disney website and then told I might not get it because it was only a request. It like anything else in life if you pay for for a service and then dont get it you are going to make a call to have the problem fixed.

I love Disney. We have stayed at the POLY, WL, CR, GF, AKL, OKW, SSR, BC, CB, POFQ AND ASsp, POP...and a few more and always have been happy with all levels of accommodations because they always give me what I paid for. Unfortunately this time it was not the case so I called.

I'll join you with a morning shot today Carl ...



Wishing I had a pic of the ducks enjoying a morning swim in the volcano pool. My girls always get a kick out of that!
