Depends on your preferences!

Do you want to be near the main pool?
Close to main house?
Quiet area?
Water view?
Theme park view?

Don't let the map panic you if this is what you are referencing to, not as big as it looks! Well at least compared to value and moderate resorts!

I am staying at the Poly for the first time it does look big and spread out on the map but if you start researching the various Longhouses on Tikiman's site you will see it is quite compact as compared to the Values and some Mods as pp said. The furthest away longhouse from TTC is only about a six minute walk.

Just Google Tikiman. I don't think we are allowed to post a link to his site.

It is a fantastic site! He also has a Facebook page and posts info and updates there!

I personally love Samoa:
- right between main and quiet pool
- very close to Great Cerimonial House
- close to beach
- about a 5 minute walk to TTC

[QUOTE="MikeRx;47947679"]I have confirmation, through Tikiman's Facebook page, from someone staying at the Poly this week that Samoa did reopen on the 25th. They seem to be staying on schedule and this is the second building (Hawaii and now Samoa) to open at or nearly on time as reported on Tikiman’s excellent post from last week. Now I hope I can get our request in 2 weeks!

Mike





This just made my day!!!!!!!!!!

we're planning our first trip to the poly in june.

we're staying in a standard room and we'd like to have a view of the volcano pool. it looks like samoa would be our best bet, but the 2nd floor rooms don't have balconies, correct? so what's the best option for a balcony (or patio) AND a view of the volcano pool?

Decorating door/room

My children have learned that some of the resorts allow decorating of doors, etc. We will be traveling over Thanksgiving, and they are hoping to decorate our door and balcony. Does anyone know if this is allowed at the Poly? Any advice would be most helpful!
