Wow! The Poly thread has sunk in the pages....with all the people who were leaving for the Poly, I would have expected to be getting all kinds of trip reports! Anybody come back recently? How'd it go?

Also, I have several CM's remind me at Fast pass entrances that starting March 7, you can't get on after the end time on your pass.
You got to be kidding me. I don't want to start a debate, but this stinks. I think I am going to have a hard time convincing my dh to go back to Disney. He hates lines. Its definetely going to make it more of a challenge. I did read something about an express pass coming that you pay for? Maybe this is the first step in that direction. Universal is sounding better and better.

Well, I just called CRO to try and switch my ressie back to the POLY from BWI....Boohoo, NO AVAILABILITY for my time right now!!! That'll teach me to be switching things all the time, sometimes you switch yourself out of what you want!

No worries! Things work out for a reason. Either something will open up at the Poly, or you aren't meant to stay there this trip. I'm betting on something will open up!

Its just not available with the discount you are booked under. I am sure there will be more discounts pins etc down the road. Are you booked with a Canadian free dining discount?

OH NO!! Well, for what it's worth - BWI is wonderful from what I have read. I am sure you will have an amazing time no matter what.

Yep Canadian Free Dining code I actually thought about what you proposed on the RCer thread (go back one page, you'll see me rambling about it! ) upgrading to DLX dining and doing reg GV room
( hoping for Samoa pool view if I did that).....but I truly am a CL addict! never done a trip without it and would miss it so much! I hope something will open up, I still have 7 months to go.....and if it doesn't, as a PP said....I can't complain about a BWI DLX room!

Just jumping back in here for a moment...hopefully next week there will be new discounts announced (so a few people say) and you could try booking with one of those??? If they materialize...let's hope for some

Can you book with a US code? They always offer FD in the Fall. I still think you might do better with a room discount and paying for ddp. I have a feeling you will get what you want in the end. Deciding what you wan't is the hard part. Right?

If you drink alcohol, go to the Tambu Lounge and get an Island Sunset (you can get it to go). This won't pack as much of a punch as a Lapu Lapu or Backscratcher BUT they sure are enjoyable as you shop and walk around GCH
