Our first stay was at the Polynesian and it spoiled us but I'm not complaining. It We love it every time, feels like home.

My Vote - Yes

The POLY is such a great resort. Pretty much anyone who has stayed there/been there would agree with me.

I hope I get to stay there one day - but the price!!!

If you can afford it then I would stay there - for $400 more.

The extras POLy comes with is amazing.

Wherever you decide to stay I hope you have a great time. And if you stay at POLY or another resort - I would love to hear a trip report! - they are so much fun to read.

Have a great time...

now to decide on Ohanas, chef mickeys or 1900 park fare. decisions never end!! lol
With Young Girls no question Chef Mickeys, Ohanas has great food, as well as 1900 Park Fare, but I find that Chef Mickeys ( esp with the characters ) has a nice buffet where they can pick out their own food.

I'm glad to hear someone else thinks the same way about WL as I do!!
I say go for the Poly!! I LOVE that resort!!! It's so convenient! It's great having the monorail, boat or bus. Watching MK fireworks from the beach cannot be beat!! Yes, it is worth the extra $400!

Besides CL I like the Tahiti building. It's close to the TTC center but a little longer walk to GCH but after awhile you'll find the shorter paths.

I'm not quite sure on the hammocks, we always just sit at one of the tables. I would say get there an hr before to get a hammock. Chances are they will also be playing a disney movie.

I recommend Fiji. It's very close to the GCH and also close to the boat launch. You can request a marina view which will give you a view of the marina and the back of the volcano, the Samoa rooms that face the pool have a full pool view, that one is also next to the GCH. You can go to the Aloha Polynesian thread and on the 1st page there is a map of the resort showing where each longhouse is located. This last time we had a room on the 3rd floor in Fiji so we had a balcony. The balcony was great! I really enjoyed sitting out there!! If you want a balcony, make sure you put that in your room request because not all rooms have a balcony. With Fiji, only the 3rd floor rooms have a balcony, the 1st floor rooms have patios, I can't speak for the other longhouses because we've always stayed in Fiji.
