Ha. Last night as she was going to bed she asked, "When are we going to Disney again?" DH and I both said, "We don't know since our next trip Disney trip is a cruise at spring break--not Disney World." Wink-wink! She is not going to believe it when we pick her up from school on Thursday and tell her we're heading to the airport.
Soooooo excited for all of you!!!

Hate to sound stupid................but what is the Poly loop??

The loop is the music that plays on a continuous "loop" throughout the grounds at the Polynesian.

Give him a scritchy-scratch behind the ears for me! I love the new thread and found it so helpful when deciding to make the switch from Contemporary TPV to Poly Club level. The fall room-only discount got me the club level at less money than the Cont.

I appreciate all the work that goes into starting and maintaining all the info!

Only 31 more days until we leave!!

Yes, please pass along our thanks as well. We just returned from 8 days at the Poly (first time stay, concierge) and his information and presentation of it was immensely helpful to us in making our visit one of the best we've ever had.

So a BIG to Guitarob! Great job, and thank you for your Disney passion!

Apparanty so. This is from post #84 of this thread.

My DD10 swims up to me and DH (where we're relaxing on the shelf where the "waterfall" normally hits) and she says, "SHHH!!!! Do you hear that??".

We look at her confused. She says, "Go underwater!! And {whispering}LISTEN!"

DH and I shrug and stick our heads underwater with DD.

Sure enough, I could hear the sweet soundtrack of the Polynesian resort. The twangy guitar & ukelele playing. If it wasn't for my body screaming "get some air" I couldn't stayed under and listened to it echo under the pool for hours. So relaxing...

We three resurfaced.. and just amazed that we could hear the music so clearly underwater.

I tried again to "find the music", numerous times throughout our visit. But sadly, did not hear the music underwater anymore. Maybe the sound of the volcano slide/waterfall and multiple people in the pool masked the soundtrack underwater. I don't think it was a fluke accident that DD, DH, and I could hear it so clearly one night and then not be able to find it again.

Maybe that was our "magic moment" at the Poly? Something we three can put into "making memories" and smile and laugh about when we go and visit WDW again.

I've heard about the Big Blue Pool at AoA having sound/music/Finding Nemo dialog underwater...but didn't realize any other pool had it.

So after my long story... I want to ask my fellow Poly Lovers - do you hear the music?

Yes! But we only heard it late at night when the volcano slide and waterfall was off and after the crowd died down.

I just did online check in and they listed the options ground floor and patio. I know this is a stupid question, but does patio mean balcony? I've seen many people here refer to the ground floor outer areas as patios and balconies on the higher floors, but there was no option for that.

Just came back from our WDW trip...stayed 4 nights at ASMovies with the kids and one night at the Polynesian (garden view CL) just me and DH for our anniversary. It was our first stay there and we absolutely loved it We rented a cabana for half a day and had lunch at Kona and dinner at 'Ohana. My DH loved it so much that we will be staying there 2 nights (garden view CL again) for our next trip in July (the other 4 nights will be at POP) We're hoping to rent a cabana again (for the whole day this time!)

In most buildings, the third floor has a balcony, and the first floor has a patio. Some buildings have balconies on the 2nd floor as well. There is a breakdown of which has what on the first page.
