I've read the entire thread. So excited for my Poly stay in 20 days!! This is my first visit ever to WDW, and I'm so nervous about staying here, because I'm sure I won't be able to stay at a value after this. I'm justifying it by saying it's just because my twins are 5, and when they're older and can handle more, we'll be able to do non-monorail resorts. But, who am I kidding?

Did I read somewhere that the Poly has Dole Whip as a self serve? What is the price?

I've made my request for 1st floor, Tokelau, but I'm linking my room with my SIL/BIL and MIL/FIL so who knows if they can find all 3 rooms with my request. Hoping for some magic.

My current schedule has a lot of rest, on account of the twins, so there are 3 meals planned for Captain Cooks. Can one really eat there 3 times over the course of 9 days and not get sick of it? We are on the DDP, and I definately don't mind going OOP at Kona if we need to.

Thanks everyone for the live updates and the inspiration. I swear, I'm at the 18 day mark until we head to FL, and 20 day mark until Poly and I'm about to jump out of my skin for the excitement of it all!!

It won't be long before you're back at the Poly .



Glad your power has been restored . I hope this new storm doesn't cause another loss of power and/or other damage.
If it's not tomorrow then it's too long!

I have a GV room booked for 11 nights next July but was toying with the idea of upgrading to CL instead. Has anybody booked CL rooms for July next year at all, or are they blocked out until the refurb has been finalised?

I think this will be just fine! We don't do much CS - usually have at least two TS meals per day, but I really like Captain Cook's. It's my favorite CS in all of WDW. I think they offer a nice variety. Once we had a very early ADR at Crystal Palace and were hungry again around 9:30 or so. We'd stopped by Captain Cook's a few times already, so I went to my favorite Captain Cook's alternative - Kona Sushi Bar! So if anyone in your group likes sushi, you can have even a little more variety while you pick up CC's for the others. Of course, Kona is another great option if you don't feel like CS.

Hope you love Poly as much as we do!!!

Thanks for the responses guys.

I am going 7/17 to 7/28, so will be there the same time. You will be able to notice us easily - we will be the family from Scotland wilting in the heat looking like we are just about to die from dehydration!

We will be there then too. We've booked CL for a quick two nights to celebrate my 50th (7/18 & 7/19). I wish we could be there longer, but it just isn't feasible right now. But I'm thrilled to be there at all!

Too funny about you wilting from the heat and dehydration . Just make good use of the pool bar and you will be fine .

Looks like July is going to be a popular month for the Poly .

Fiji Longhouse?

I'm considering requesting the Fiji longhouse, marina view for our upcoming trip. Anyone who has stayed there that can offer pros/cons?

We like being closer to the action and seeing more activity from our room. Samoa will likely be under refurbishment during our dates so I don't want to request that Longhouse. Fiji is further from the TTC, but we'll be going to the MK and volocano pool more than the TTC and/or driving the rental car.

I think you've made an excellent choice!! Your first concern is justified...we visited the Poly for our first family trip, in 2007, with a 3 year old and a 5 year old, thinking it would be a one time splurge. Now we're planning visit number 5!!!

There is definitely DoleWhip soft serve. Not sure on the exact price, we have used snack credits or gotten it as our dessert. I'm guessing around $4?

I think your room request is perfect. We've stayed in that exact location very time. Centrally located and I think you'll love first floor for the "extra space".

I don't think having Captain Cook's 3x is too many. They have lots of good choices. I love the Aloha pork sandwich and the flatbreads.

Have a great trip and be sure to come back and share your experience with us!!!

You are gonna have a blast and doing it right by staying long enough to not be rushed!As far as your captain cooks quick service meals,if you dont want to eat there 3 times hop on the monorail or boat and check out the quick serve at the contemporary or grandfloridian!My best advice for a 1st time visitor is have the park map ahead of time and have a plan drawn out on your map!We got sooo lost all the time on our 1st trip lol and it was 105 degrees!
