It will be my longest stay on property. I'm really excited to just relax in Poly paradise for 13 days.

I was wondering if anyone knows...... Way back in this thread there is a link showing a photo of a bounce back code. Is this valid for everyone or do they change the code from time to time? We are going to Poly in June and doing AP. Not sure if I should try to book a bounce back when we are there (if that code pictured would work) for our November trip or if I should just hold tight and see what if any AP discounts come out for November.

Any thoughts? Thanks

The bounce backs do change periodically. The current one may or may not still be in effect when you are there in June. If the current BB is still in effect and the dates work you should definitely book it - 35% off it a great discount! (you can always change to the AP discount when it comes out, but I doubt it would be better) If there is no flyer in your room just call the BB extension - 8844 - while you are still at the Poly to find out what the current offer is. Good luck!

ETA: if you search in the Discounts thread (stickied at the top of the Resorts forum) you should be able to find the dates that the current bounce back is good for

Thanks for the reply I did check the bounce back dates and they do work for me. It will be the week before Thanksgiving. This June is our 1st trip to Poly but since DH will have conferences to attend and will miss out on some of the time I really want to try to book @ Poly again so he can enjoy it as much as we are going to.

You're welcome. Good luck - I hope they are still offering the 35% off when you're there in June!

Have the rooms been updated recently? Our last stay here was Sept 2009. I thought I read they were refurbed at the end of 2010 but i can't find any pics of any rooms looking different

any help or current pics would be appreciated

According to the Tikiman website, all of the rooms had a soft rehab in 2010. So, the decor didn't change but the soft goods, carpets, bedding, curtains, etc were replaced. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

Poly gets panned on here from time to time as well. I find that the Poly consistently hovers between a rank of 75-80 on tripadvisor (but I'm not paying attention, lol) I have switched out of my Poly ressies soooo many times because of reviews but I have decided to stick with it this time because 1) we have a great rate and 2) if we went by reviews, we would have never stayed at any of the values - all of which we loved, btw....and CBR gets killed on trip advisor, but we stayed there and while it wasn't our favorite, it wasn't nearly as bad as you read about in those reviews. I don't want someone else's experience keep me from doing what I want to do.

Plus, I think a lot of people pay rack rate at Poly, and based on that, they expect these luxurious accommodations like you would find at the Four Seasons or something, but you know, it's Disney...you don't get that, but peoples expectations aren't met based on the money spent and I think people get mad about that. I expect a clean room, good customer service, and that's all. I think I'll be fine.

Thanks for posting that. We normally stay YC CL which I LOVE and really liked BWI CL too. So first stay at Poly ever and honestly never thought I would stay but DD13 asked to do a split stay there with Poly and BC CL on the back end of the trip. I am really picky though about a room condition. I know others could care less but it is a real hang up for me and hece my being nervous over the reports. I too got a great pin and feel like now or never but have read so much GOOD on GF lately...ever stay theree???

Love this thread!!!! The pics are amazing!

Excited that we just got back from our first stay at the Poly since I was little and we loved it! We booked a bounce-back for 7 nights in November garden-view club level!!! So excited and can't wait to go back!!!

I agree our room was a bit worn, but was seemed larger as compared to other rooms on property and had all we needed. We were in Samoa which had an awesome location to EVERYTHING. To be able to sit on the beach, and still be just a short walk away from the pool, pool bar, and quick service was awesome. Every morning I would sit on the beach, listen to the sounds of the MK, watch the boats go back and forth, and just soak-in the pure beauty of the Poly!!

We've never stayed at GF...this is actually our first time at the Poly too (split with BC ) we've never actually stayed deluxe before, so I figure it's gotta be at least as good as where we've stayed previously (values and 1 mod), right??? but, even on tripadvisor you can find reports of roaches and poor room conditions...I never know whether to take reports seriously or not, so again, I'm just going to go for it now while I've got a good price and then I'll know for myself. And if it's downright awful, Disney will move you.
