We stayed at the Poly in 2004. I enjoyed it, although BC is still my favorite deluxe, and I'm a recent convert to POFQ.

Favorite memories about the Poly: Watching Wishes from the beach, and the little boat that runs to/from MK. LOVED Kona for lunches, although I haven't been there since '04 and I know the menu has changed. We had Standard View in Rarotonga and it was actually really good, close to the main building, and we could watch the monorail go by from our 3rd floor balcony.

We stayed at Poly last end of April beginning of May for 10 days. We loved it. I had been there when I was a little girl and now being 40 was afraid it would seem "dated"- not so. They've kept it up very nice over the years. We had a ground room in Samoa building looking right at the pool. I was shocked how quiet our room was with all those kids at the pool for night swims, but really no noise at all! Sounds weird but I even like the smell in the lobby at Poly- tropical flower scent that brings back memories. We are planning another trip for this coming fall and kiddos want to stay at Contemporary this time, which is fine, but I would be more than happy to do Poly again!

As they say a picture is worth a thousand words.

Waking up to that everyday just is the epitome of calm and tranquility, especially after dealing with the hustle and bustle of Disney.
