I think I'm loosing my mind. I would swear that I saw a short list of "distances from point A to point B" for each longhouse to GCH?

Was that on this thread??

I finally got an AP rate for CL for my October trip! I thought it wasn't going to happen, but after nearly two weeks of checking every day it finally popped up. I'm so glad I kept checking!

You can take the resort monorail around the loop and then change to the Epcot monorail. The resort loop goes Poly-> GF-> MK-> Contemporary-> TTC, so it's actually a little faster to walk to the TTC, but the ride is convenient enough if you don't want to walk as much.
Thank you

Walk to TTC and get on the monorail to EPCOT there. That's the quickest.
Thank You

I've seen the question asked but haven't seen an answer...whats the scoop on renovations/construction at Poly? the only site iIfind with any hint is tikiman. My family has always stayed at SoG or POR before, but next year we are splurging (25th anniversary!) and finally staying at Poly. Just hoping construction won' take away from our enjoyment.

What little he knows is pretty much the only "scoop" available. It's ALL rumor and speculation at this point.

Best time to request a room location

When is the best time to call and make a room location request? We are staying over Thanksgiving, so I know it will be a busy time and a packed house. I don't want to wait too late. Thanks!

You can call and make it now if you want. I just called and added mine, we arrive October 14th. If you add a request to your reservation call back a few days later and ask if your room request is on there. The reason I say this is because I have made a room request a couple of times to find out it wasnt on there. I usually call back to confirm that they have added it. Well a few years ago it was not on there at all. This week a portion of what I requested was on my reservation. They did not add the building request the first time so I asked if they would add that. They said they did , so Im going to call back in a few days and see if they did.
