I agree! Nothing like a pool break with a nice mojito (or beverage of choice) in your hand and looking at the castle.

I am sooo excited! DH just told me last week to book a trip to the Poly (and WDW, lol) for October! I have already booked the hotel at the airport, paid for our flight, and made the deposit on the reservation, before he could change his mind. Now I can get on here again without it hurting my heart! 189 days until I am eating a dole whip with my toes in the sand watching Wishes...and hallowishes! Guess I better get to making a new ticker.

The best longhouse would be Tonga, followed by Hawaii.

How exciting! You will love it! We loved Tokelau and will request it again. It was central to everything. And we requested 3rd floor but ended up with patio, which we loved, because we were close to the beach and could sit on the patio drinking coffee while the kids ran around and played. We will request that again, too.

We usually stick to MK, Epcot, and DHS and probably do them about an equal amount of time (with AK only thrown in once in a while). We tend to spend alot of time at the resort relaxing and enjoying the pool as we find the Poly the best resort to do that .

We loved Samoa . It's convenient to everything as it's just steps from the GCH, the volcano pool, the beach, and Captain Cooks.

Hi Poly fans! Does anyone know if the walking path between the Poly and Grand Floridian is still open during the DVC construction?

This is the longhouse I requested!! So glad to hear when others have stayed there

Of course my trip is in JULY, so the chances of me actually getting what I requested I'm sure are pretty slim

Those are the parks we like so it makes more sense for us to stay at the poly. I am the girl you see walking super quick out of Epcot after illuminations to be on the 1st or 2nd monorail back to the ttc and then we watch wishes.

I just came back from Florida and it is freezing here. We drove to ft. Myers and it was beautiful . Upper 80s but a constant breeze where my sister lives. We stopped in DtD Friday night and I told my Dh the next time we are back here it will be an oven and we will be sweating.

We did an overnight in Jacksonville and when we started driving the next am it was brrr....50. And it was tht same temp back home!
