Just got back late Sunday night from another amazing week at WDW!! We stayed most of the week at POR but transferred to the Poly for the last night/2 days to relax before heading home late Sunday. This was a big splurge as a birthday gift to me and I have to say I'll have a hard time staying anywhere else now! We checked in around 11 am and were greeted with a woman with an Ipad at the door and she just walked us right over to our room! We had booked a standard garden view and were given pixie dust and upgraded to a Concierge Club Level room in Hawaii!!! We were on the ground floor facing the quiet pool, very close to everything! LOVE the renovations they've done to the room! The bathroom alone was half the size of my apartment!! I wish we'd had more time to spend here since we only used the Concierge Lounge for the continental breakfast! We'd hoped to try the evening appetizers but we had a dinner reservation for the exact time they put them out. Boo! I've already pitched to my mother making another trip for just maybe 4 days, to stay at the Poly Concierge again but maybe as a compromise we'd only get a 1 day park pass so we were really using this resort! The only issues we had was that our key cards wouldn't get us into our building so we had to have them re-cut and they also didn't give us the ME letter with the bar code and the info telling us what time to meet the ME bus.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Club level sounds amazing! Does anyone know what the evening menu is in the lounge?

Wow, that's an awesome birthday gift!!! Happy late birthday! Mine was a couple weeks ago but I'll be celebrating at WDW in Sept since it was my "big" 3-0 and I couldn't be there for my birthday.

So excited for our first stay at the Poly on Saturday!! We stayed at all the other monorail resorts and we wanted to give it a try. I requested Tokelau and a balcony. Hoping that was the right choice! I was afraid to request Samoa because I wasn't sure how much noise there would be from the pool.

We check in on Sunday and requested Tokelau or Samoa. We stayed in Samoa in 04 and weren't disturbed by pool noise on the 3rd floor

I was just at Poly with dh for anniversary Sunday. I walked him to Tokelau to show him the staircase/balcony at the end of the building towards water. Dd then 15 and I had a mom n me trip there . We loved standing on balcony and enjoyed the view and no one was ever there. Also I enjoyed the new offerings at Captain Cooks. Kids chicken and pineapple skewers were yummy!
Enjoy your trip!!!

Overall, perfect stay and we really enjoyed drinking pina coladas on the beach while watching Wishes.
Glad you had a great trip . We loved our stay in Samoa too.....loved how close it was to everything.

Have a great trip.....the Poly is awesome .

Glad you got your request. I agree about the location . Enjoy the rest of your trip .

Hope you have a great time . We stayed in Samoa in 2007 and weren't disturbed by noise either (we were on the first floor).
