basically, all of March is a school break holiday somewhere in the country!
Rates and crowd calendars down kick up to spring break levels until the 8th

Now to my question: We reserved a TPV room. I'm guessing we'll get Tahiti. Can you really see well from the ground floor? Or is it better to be up higher? I'm thinking of requesting a patio for ease of letting the kids go out and play, but want the view to be the best it can be as well! Looking forward to the suggestions/recommendations! Thanks!
You can definitely see from the 1st floor Tahiti. There is huge lawn in front of Tahiti b/w the building & the beach. I think it would be ideal with little ones! We love love LIVE Tahiti TPV!!

I consider a 4 low, (comparatively to the rest of the month). After the 8th they go up to spring break levels. It's been a bit since I checked though. This is why we booked 2/28-3/8

We are here. Room request was granted with Tahiti 3rd floor. Since we had a little problem during our last trip, they surprised us with an upgrade to use the club level lounge. We are here now looking at the castle with a beautiful tree and sushi!

I would ask for Roratonga or Nuie first floor room. Roratonga is adjacent to the GCH which houses the monorail platform, check-in, restaurants, and shopping. Have fun

Someone posted earlier about the Poly pool possibly being rehabbed in Jan., so I checked with my TA. She says nope, it's not on their website--she did list a number of other resort pools being done, but the Poly wasn't on there. So, that's a relief for me! Between Hawaii probably being out of commission (still no confirmation of that, btw)and the pool maybe down for the count, I was seriously considering changing to Beach Club.

From Tikiman's Facebook page:

I have heard some unconfirmed information that work on the Polynesian pool will wait until the Grand Floridian pool is finished. Also a new style hot tub design is going to be tested at another resort and if it goes well the design will be installed at the Polynesian later in the year. At this point I don't know how true any of this is but I thought I would share it.
