I agree. Even for 200 or 300 that would not work for me.

But it's not like there won't be a pool available. The quiet pool will be open.

I would love to get a recommendation about what room to request. We are going in January with our five and two year old. We will mainly be at mk and Epcot and will be going back and forth to the room for naps so I was thinking something close to transportation? The monorail? I was thinking about requesting Raro tonga, Niue, or Toke Lau. Does anyone have any ideas? Which longhouse and any specific view or location? Thanks so much!!

Not sure how many people here knew.... Tikiman is shutting down his wonderful site. He is a regular here, and I just wanted to say thanks and Mahalo for all the great advice and help he has provided throughout the years.

I just read his last post too. So sad. It's a great site.

Thank you for all of your Poly advice over the years, Tikiman! I remember your being one of my first and most helpful resources when I joined the DIS almost thirteen years ago. I was just eleven at the time, but still loved your site! Wishing you all the best in your future endeavors.

Is it possible that some guests who stay at the Poly aren't that interested in the main pool?

I've seen comments here about people paying $x/night and not being able to use the pool (or the monorail when that was temporarily down) and that they must be upset. Perhaps they just like the Poly for its overall ambiance, the grounds, or the location? Whatever it is, obviously they feel its worth it for them so who are we to question it?

Perhaps the better statement is that "I wouldn't stay at the Poly at $x/night if the main pool wasn't open"?

Ditto

Tikiman's site has been one of my very favorite Disney-related sites.

I've also appreciated him taking the time to provide updates on this thread (especially since I don't have regular access to his terrific FB page as FB is blocked on my work and home computer).

People walked by us and said, "how can you be in there? It's freezing!" I told them we were Northerners...temps in the 60s in the winter is balmy
We are from the Midwest so 60 degrees in January is WARM for us too. I know the pools are heated so I would assume the waterpark pools are heated too. At least I hope they are...

When are you going in January? We are staying January 11-18, 2014.

You must consider that you cannot see who you were speaking with or what they did when they got off the phone. They could have called someone at Polynesian Recreation or even forwarded you to someone there. That is very possible but having a phone number that calls the front desk I am told is not possible. I will have to stick with the information that I am given from people that work there.
Hello, for the reservations is there a number that you recommend calling ? Thanks!!!

Steve - so sorry that you are shutting down your wonderful site.

Thank you so much for all the help through the years. I will miss looking at your beautiful Poly site!
