Peak season yes.
But it looks like regular season runs between $780-850.

Still too steep for me. All the more reason to love DVC!!

That's my point! It is out of control, and I love the poly but let's be real, I saw 929 per night for regular season! I draw the line here.

Yikes! You could fly to Hawaii and spend a night there for that kind of $$

They'll continue to up the price as long as they continue to get it.

Not from me they won't

I will continue to try to go with Pop Century. And only eat in the Poly's restaurants.

Well I guess all I can do is dream about staying there! That is outrageous ! I'll stick with the values and moderates.

So far, so good

Looks like so far everybody's got the right idea. If its too expensive, don't book it.

Obviously some people don't think its too expensive since I'm sure the rooms aren't going empty.

I say good for them. If people will pay it, those profits can be used in other areas.

The only time I've stayed concierge the Cast Members gave it to us for free. We definitely can't afford $1k a night.

I remember staying in Poly CL and paying less than $250! Talk about a bargain! There is no way I would pay that, even if I won the lottery.

There is no comparison between DVC and Poly CL.

I want to say that it was around $500-600/night late June/early July for Poly CL. We paid for garden view, but "won the Disney lottery" and got a free upgrade, although without the MK view. MK view might have been a bit more.

Loved having the lounge - free breakfast, free drinks...could walk down any time and get a can of Coke, or some milk for our daughter. Never tried the lunch since we were at the parks.

The CL concierge helped get us an ADR we weren't able to get before, and book the Spirit of Aloha for us and friends who were staying offsite. And when we left in a hurry (DD#2 had a persistent reflux issue for the first several years) and forgot our glasses, she had new ones shipped to us at home no charge.

I would never have paid for it since I don't think it was worth the upcharge, but it was really nice...

Please tell me you are joking.T here is no way I would pay $1,000 a night.

They only thing I would pay $1,000 a night to stay in is in Cindy's Castle and that is just to say we did it.
