I hope you have a magical stay. We haven't stayed CL, but we LOVE the Poly and can't wait to go back (and try CL) in December .

I am looking forward to a little relaxation this trip.
We haven't stayed CL at the Poly, but have stayed CL at other resorts and we love it. When we stay CL, it's more for having the lounge for someplace to sit and relax than it is for the food (although the food offerings are a nice perk ), so I think you made a good choice going with CL. I'm sure your in laws will enjoy the lounge when not in the parks .

Was very sad to cancel our October BB to the Poly, although it was for a good cause - our first Disney cruise next March! Now I'm very excited that DH has told me to plan 2 nights at the Poly before our cruise! We will only be hitting the MK for one day, but it will be fantastic to splurge on an extra little visit to our favourite vacation spot!

I'm sorry you had to cancel your BB, but yay for a cruise + Poly stay . We are taking our first Disney cruise in December, with 2-3 nights at WDW before and 2 nights after. I was going to book the Poly prior to the cruise and the CR (our first stay there) after, but I decided to end with the Poly as that's our favorite resort....plus we're trying CL .

I think just to save some money we won't be booking CL for this trip (unless we get a fantastic deal!) but we have stayed CL our last 2 trips and really enjoyed it. I hope you love it too! We just really appreciate having the extra space of the lounge (you've got more inside space to enjoy than just your room), the convenience of having food right there and Hawaii is an amazing location

Did you make these requests online or did you call directly? And also can anyone tell me as far as doing online checkin are most of you getting your longhouse requests met? We will be there may 28 - june 3..

We've only stayed at the Poly once and that's all it took for us to fall in love with the resort......now trying CL is the only thing left to really put us over the top . We love CL for the exact reason you said.....we love the lounge for somewhere else to go rather than in the room or other places around the resort. We stayed in Samoa and loved that location, so I will be more than thrilled being in that same area in the Hawaii building. I can't wait to try CL and although the reports of the food offerings that I've read are mixed, it seems everybody agrees that the view from the lounge can't be beat . I hope a good discount comes out for your dates and you can upgrade to CL.

We've never done online check in, but on our Poly stay we had 2 out of 3 requests fulfilled (with the 3rd one being met if we wanted to move the next day). When you check in, if your assigned room doesn't met your request(s), you can always ask if a room that meets your requests is available. If it's not available immediately but will be later in the day, I'm sure the CM will gladly give you that room if you are willing to wait. Good luck .

Auntie's Mai-tai Friday!

Shameless ticker check and observation…Isn’t a great thing to get your dining reservation reminder in your in box! You know the trip is really, really close and you are allowed to be excited and ready. We have our first ADR at Ohana on Friday a few hours after we arrive. An "Auntie's" Mai-tai is waiting for me at the Tambu Lounge!

There's just something amazing about waking up at the crack of dawn, and seeing the Polynesian complete barren, having the entire beach to yourself.
