...travel agent rate at the Poly!
That's it! I'm becoming a travel agent.

Might as well - I'm the defacto travel agent for all my friends and family anyway....

Nice! If you don't mind me asking what kind of discount does the travel agent gets? 40%?

You are right! It can be if you go off season and depends on the type of room you get! I am getting right about 51% right now for June.

My friends told me yesterday the same thing - I was showing off my lovely booklet that I created with all our plans on it and they were ready to hire me! haha! If only I could get that discount! Although, I'll be really happy if the summer discount that should be released next week works for us!

I would love to be a Disney TA...

From what I've seen and heard on these boards, the summer discount covers the rest of the summer through the middle of August and is the same as the Spring promotion with discounted rooms and tickets when you do a package. I'm banking on it at least because that's how we're doing 5 nights at the Poly!! :-)

Well after much discussion this past weekend, we have decided to do our first Split Stay, this summer

I hope it turns out smoothly!!! It will be our first time at Poly (which has been a dream of mine for quite some time!)

Poly first, then BC/YC for the end of our trip.

Looking at tikiman's site, I am thinking Tokelau (sp?) might be a nice longhouse to request? Want a balcony, garden view level, close to both TTC and GCH/Pool.

can anyone tell me about that longhouse? would I be better off requesting a different one?

TIA

That's what I'm planning to request I think. I liked Rapa Nui the last time we were there, but it's set for refurbishment the day after we leave and I want a refurb room! :-) Tahiti looks like it will most likely be closed then, so Tokelau is the next best bet, and I don't think you can go wrong with a view there!

I was just looking at Tahiti ----- don't know why I thought it was for club level guests It might be another one to put on my list!!! (nevermind, it's set for refurb in July)

I do also want a refurbished room, did I read correctly that all the longhouses will have double sink vanities?

Anyone have any updates on the renovations? I'm really hoping they're ahead of schedule as I requested Tahiti...and it's supposed to start renovations in July and we check in September 18th.

Plus the agent rate just makes it an easy decision! YAYAY! Oh... and the girls won't know until we pick them up the morning of!
What a great surprise!!! Everyone's going to have a great time .

What a great split. The Poly is our favorite resort, but we did love the BC and being within walking distance to Epcot and DHS was very convenient. Splitting between them is the best of both worlds .

Yes. All will have double sinks. What are your dates? I think they're figuring about 2 months per longhouse, according to tikiman's site.

You might get lucky and it would be done? But...I wouldn't think they'd be ahead of schedule. :-) unfortunately I know.

Does the Poly have a FB page like many of the other Disney resorts?
