We are leaving for our first POLY stay in 19 days I too am trying to decide if I want to request a building.

I want to have faith in the Tiki gods, but Im thinking I also want to be close to the food, shopping and volcano pool. I just cant decide.

I have always, and will always, request a longhouse. There are definitely longhouses that I prefer 'less' due to location and I'd kick myself if I didn't at least make an effort to ask for a specific longhouse.

As you can see from my signature, we've been staying at Poly for a long time! The tiki gods have always been good to us! And until recently, I didn't care about longhouse assignment. But now, with kids, knowing how nice it is to be close to GCH, and really enjoying the view after the kids are asleep, I'll always put in a request.

If we hadn't have done the pool relaxing on the party day, the kids never would have made it to dark!

Refrigerators?

Hi all! Going to the Poly in one week!!! Have stayed here before, but it's been a while and have a question. I know dorm size refrigerators are in every room, but are they empty (to accommodate what you might bring) or are they mini-bar type refrigerators that are stocked with things for you to purchase? Thanks in advance for the information! Can't wait!!

The refrigerators are empty for you to stock. Just remember to prop the cabinet door open with a wash cloth or towel so it is properly ventilated. Doing this keeps items in the refrigerator colder. If you don't, you may have cooling problems.

That is where we stayed the last two trips at the Poly. I love the proximity to the main house. Our second stay we requested a 3rd floor room to have a balcony and we just loved it! Im a creature of habit, but I would like to try Samoa facing in the same direction some time.

DVD Players In Rooms?

My husband and I are planning a date night during the week this trip. Luckily we are bringing one of our teenagers; so we'll have a babysitter for our 4 year old son as well! I'd like to set them up with snacks and movies in the room that night so they can have their own fun. Does the Poly have movies we can rent/use? And I don't remember if there are dvd players in the rooms? If not can we request one to borrow?

Well, whaddaya know, I'm exactly 100 days out today! No ticker, though, because it's a surprise trip for the kids (and DD9 is nosy). The big reveal will be Christmas morning, when Me-me, the gift-giver, will be there to see their reactions.

BTW, I requested Tahiti building--we like being close to the TTC. DS6 is a huge monorail fan, and I see us spending most of our time in MK and Epcot. But I must say, while there are favorite rooms, there's really no bad ones. We loved Rapa Nui the one time we stayed there, too (although we didn't care for the HA room).

Congrats on the savings and booking CL .

If there's a specific area you'd like to be in, I'd put in a request; otherwise, I'd wait to see where you're assigned at check in. IMO, there's not a bad building/view at the Poly .

We loved being close to the GCH, volcano pool, and the beach when we stayed in Samoa . Whether you decide to request a longhouse or not, have a great trip .

I am so excited for our first stay here in March! Reading this thread convinces me I made the right decision to switch from AOA suite to Poly for 110 more!!

Two questions.

1. what building would you recommend if we want to be close to the monorail and the pool??? (have heard samoa and tokelau are good??) we have booked garden view.

2. What are the chances that I will get a late check out on departure day? do I have to request that now or when we get there? Our flight doesnt leave till late afternoon so hoping to enjoy the pool that day after breakfast at Chef Mickeys!

thanks
