I'm glad to hear everyone is having a good experience with the resort and CL. There's nothing you can do about other guests. We'll ignore any weird behavior.

We arrive on Saturday! 7 full days of being immersed in a fairy tale, I can't wait! I just hope the weather doesn't cause any problems. Looks like jackets might be needed for DH and the kids in the am/pm. The poor dears get cold easy

We will be there in a few days as well. There was inappropriate behavior last visit to Poly CL (as opposed to the way we behave in public) and there may be this visit. But, we don't worry about what other people are doing or eating, etc. Our only concern is how we handle ourselves Have a wonderful trip! Poly CL is magical!

Oh I would love to be able to help but this will be the first time we have driven since 1999. So this is kind of a new adventure for us.

I'm excited for all of you about to go on your trip to the Poly I hope you all have a great time !
We just got back last week and I miss it already. I'm wishing we could just be getting ready to leave for our trip Can I turn back the time to October 14th I guess I will start planning my next trip to get over missing the Poly and Disney
Here are a couple of my favorite photos I took while at the Poly

You've got that right! It's been a long time since I've been this excited.

Jumping in here to say we finally have a plan for our next Poly stay! Looks like March...trying to plan so we can get in the Hawaii building just as it "re-opens" after refurb. <crossing fingers>

Taking our friends who are newbies--they have never been to WDW. Will be so much fun to experience it with them (and their kids)!

Oh your pictures are beautiful. I do believe every one gets those missing Disney blues. I know I do. Sometimes we start planning our next vacation before we leave the one we are on.

Next year will be our first stay at the Poly. DH and I are not fans (sorry Poly lovers) but our DS16 is. So we decided to stay there for two nights CL for him. I know such a sacrifice that DH and I are doing. I do have to say that we are looking forward to our stay and truly hope that our minds will change about the Poly.

Now I just have to wait for Christmas morning to schedule our ADR's and the cabana for our arrival day. Merry Christmas to me.

Good luck with the drive. We are in NWI only about 40 miles from Chicago. I am so not a long distance driver......it takes all I have just to get to Ohare or Midway to catch a flight .

How fun to go with others who have never been.....and choosing the Poly for their first stay is a great way to introduce them to Disney .

I'm the same way......I always start planning our next trip before we leave the one we're on. I see it as a good way to lessen the sadness of going home . Good luck with your ADRs .

So many people checking in this weekend! We check in for out first club level stay on Saturday, we should be there around 4:00. I can hardly wait, we've never stayed at a monorail hotel before! With a 2 yr old and one on the way, we decided it was time to give it a try. We have 2 breakfasts at O'hana to see Mickey, breakfast and dinner at the CP to see our favorites, Pooh and Eeyore, a cabana for the morning before MNSSHP on Tues, and lunch at Chef Mickey's. I'm planning on a massage at SS ( too bad the GF spa is still closed), and we have the FLE D23 preview on Nov 4 at 8 am. The rest will be decided as we go, with a lot of it at the MK for our son. I almost hate for Sat to come, because then I will blink and it will be over! It will be a while before we make it back, I'm not too keen on flying with a toddler and a baby!

Have a great trip . The Poly is an awesome resort, with the monorail being just one of the many perks .
