Looking at Poly July 19 - 23rd then check out and head to BC.

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
We are splitting between YC and the Poly too after our own set of exhaustive discussions. We have done it before and, other than the actual move, it is truly the best of both worlds.

We love Tokelau. It is the best equidistant location to everything and most of the views are lovely.

We bought tickets for the number of days we needed for both stays and continued to use the old KTTK room card the entire trip. I think it is possible to get the tix moved to your new KTTK card but we didnt bother. This was in December 2010 so if it has changed I hope someone lets us both know!

Transportation Times

Hi Folks,

I'm hoping that someone can help me out with this question:

My DS and mom are doing a YES class at MK at 8:15 AM. The park doesn't open until 9 AM that day. My issue is getting from Poly to MK in time for the class. What time does the monorail and boat start?

Thanks!

The monorail runs, I believe, an hour before park opening. Not sure about the boats though. Actually, the monorail runs even earlier I think because we had an ADR at Crystal Palace at 8:05 and we took the monorail before 8am. Hopefully someone will come along to clarify.

If I am not mistaken, I'm pretty sure the monorail starts running at 7am.

Just made our reservations!!!! Starting out at Poly July 19th for 4 nights, then we will switch over to BC for the remainder of our vacation.

I have been grinning all morning...............I just can't believe I actually convinced them to give Poly a try

I'm so jealous!!! We're currently booked 8/13-8/15 at AoA, switching to Poly CL on 08/15. Thought with this discount we could switch those first two nights to Poly CL so I could spend the whole week there, but no availability for me
