I saw that too and it does have me a little worried. We are planning next february with family and I want great discounts again!

Fingers crossed we get them! I fell in love with the poly and although I am thinking of trying either AKL or CR the end of our trip will be at the poly!

I know, I was hoping for a bigger discount as well! Right now we are booked on a BB offer for free dining, that actually saves us more than the current 20% off!!!! When we 1st stayed at Poly in 2010, we were able to get 40% off for the same week in Sept!!!! That shows you how much the discounts have gone down. I'm sure we'll never see those days again and the price at the Poly keeps going up every year. This year it's $422/night and $452/night on Friday and Saturday night. We might venture and try a new resort next year if the prices go up much more!

Are those prices the standard prices or with a discount? I'm considering the poly for a jan. 2014 trip, trying to get an idea of prices

Check these out. You should probably add 10% on top of these for 2014.

Those are the standard prices. Granted, they might be a little less or a little more in Jan 2014. Those prices are for 9/5 -9/9.

This year discounts started on Jan 2. I know AKL received a deep discount, I paid <$200 per night per room for pool view there.

That's a great deal! Too bad the Poly does not offer that big of a discount!! Right now, for when we go, they are offering 20% off but we save more with our BB offer of free dining. I was really hoping they would come out with more than a 20% off discount!

I know, right? We arrived onsite on Jan 1, Polynesian was over$400 a night for that night (and I needed two rooms). I snagged the Dolphin with AAA for <$200 per night per room. IIRC the Polynesian discount was pretty decent, I just couldn't justify two rooms at that cost. For our upcoming stay in two weeks I'm paying ~$420 a night for standard with the room only discount. I think it's around 30% discount. I also got some ticket discount based on that promo, maybe 20%? I do know that when we went in October, my time (first week of Oct.) was like right between the discount times, only thing I could use was a FD PIN code (would have much rather had a room only since CR was over $500 a night).

The spring discount was only 20% also, and it is possible that the lower discounts this year are the result of the longhouse refurbishments taking a fair number of rooms out of inventory. However the GF also only had the 20% discount and they did not have room refurbishments. All the low discounts really tell you is that projected occupancy rates at the Poly and GF are relatively high.

I have a theory about this. Since New Fantasyland is opening, there's been so much focus on Magic Kingdom that everyone wants to stay at an MK resort. I think people will be spending more time at MK than usual - I think that park will be the most crowded for the next year or so (I'm sure it was probably already the most crowded, but this just makes it more so). Just my theory

Aloha! I've had the magical experience of staying at the Poly and I loved it! Can't wait to go back...hopefully in 2014. Staying in the cabins in September. While at the Poly I fell in love with the music they played while I was relaxing in the hammock. I asked one of the cast members if there was a cd I could buy but he couldn't help me. Was just wondering if any of you knew names of artists/cd's that might feature some of the polynesian music I heard. Mahalo!

Probably as a good a theory as any, but it doesn't explain why the CR standard/lake view rooms (I assume there is no discount for the MK view) are 30% off.
