Also, if there is a charge for wifi use, how much is the cost?

Thanks!
I don't know of a place to print, but the concierge can help set that up for you. Also WiFi is free, you just have to agree to their terms every time you reconnect to it.

The best bet to print off the Internet is to go to contemporary resort business center. There is not a wifi enabled printer at the poly. So even if you get on the Internet there would be no printer to print to. so contemporary would be your best bet.
If you are going to buy universal park tickets online, you can pick them up at will call at universal gate.

As venomhatch said wifi is free.

Couldn't resist ... we're heading back to Poly Aug 25 - Sept 3

We spent 9 days at the Poly last year, had a great time but fully intended not to go back to Disney this year. Well, we booked the same time this year and for the first time have free dining. We had so much fun last year and are looking forward to relaxing at the resort more this year. Can't wait!

The Poly's not perfect but it's such a great experience ... we felt like we were on vacation somewhere relaxing, tropical, and isn't that's what it's all about? I feel sorry for the people who pick a Holiday Inn or a regular hotel ... Disney does such a nice job delivering a fully immersive experience.

We spent so much time hanging at the Great Ceremonial House that we only purchased 7 day tickets this time instead of tickets for the full 9 day. Can't wait to get back to the Poly. I'll post some pictures from last year soon.

I'm curious if there are any reports of new things to do since last year...is the new Fantasyland open? New/revamped rides? What's the new drink sensation and the new food sensation? Have they updated the menu at Captain Cook's? It got old quickly, but we loved Kona Island sushi and Kona grill.

Is there a place at the Poly where we can see the fireworks at M.K.? Someone recommended watching the fireworks at the beach at the Poly?

We are staying at the beach club. I have ressies for CRT at 9:25 one evening and we will miss the fireworks due to this ressie. We only have three park days and I am trying to fit everything in!

Any help would be awesome!

Part of the new Fantasyland opened just a week ago and a little more should open by the time you go. Everything else is pretty much the same.

Yes you can watch the fireworks from the beach at the Poly. Or you can watch it from the observation deck at the Contemporary. There are a few locations you can view it from!

To expand on what pricssdisnygina said, Dumbo (one spinner), the Great Goofini (re-themed Barnstormer) and the Fantasyland roundhouse train station are now open. The Little Mermaid and the Beauty & the Beast section are supposed to be open later in 2012, but there are no definite dates yet.
There's some great pictures on these blogs:

Can't wait to see it! And really hoping that Be Our Guest Restaurant is open for our visit in late October!

Can someone who has stayed Club Level at Poly recently give me an update on the morning snacks and mid-day snacks or evening snacks? We are doing Hoop Dee Do and Luau so we won't even be there for two of the four nights of snacks. Just more curious about mid-day snacks.

I read some really bad reviews on allears.net and I can't decide if I want to switch to regular garden view from club level.

Thoughts??


Thanks!

Thought about doing CL but budget limits us to Garden View CL.

Has anybody stayed GV CL before at POLY? How "bad" is the view?

It adds an extra $400 on to the room charges. I was thinking of then getting rid of the Dining Plan.

Thoughts or advice are most welcome!!
This was our CL GV room last May ...

Afternoon snacks are usually cookies and something like gummy bears or goldfish crackers. Nothing extravagant.

I know!
Well, I have started my packing practice and I am also making my daughter a few nice things to wear and the boys some new t-shirts. Plus, my B and SIL are headed down next month so I am giddy for them too! I can't help myself!
