No question is silly. The second floor sliding doors do open and the leis are silk flowers.

Thanks for the info about the sliding doors and the leis!

The Poly REALLY seems like a nice place to stay.

I had requested Tokelau and a full balcony, they offered to move us in a few days to the second floor but advised a young tour group are arriving and we would be right next to them so we declined!
Anyway, we are here for 18 days and have already had dole whips and watched wishes from the beach, theme parks start today...
18 days, wow! Enjoy!! Quick question about your patio.... what side of the building are you on and is there any sort of shrubbery blocking your path out? I'm planning on requesting Tokelau first floor for our Sept. trip and was wondering if I'll be able to roll a double stroller into the room through the patio door. Thanks so much!

You couldn't roll in a buggy to our patio, it's blocked by plants. We are on the pool side, we are very close to the main door of the longhouse though and it's incredibly convenient for everything! We have never stayed here before and were a bit unsure of locations but I think Tokelau is a fantastic choice. x

It is just a standard room (it is all I can afford - even at the TA rate!), but I am sure it will still be awesome!
Congrats on booking the Poly. The Poly is an amazing resort no matter what type of room you are in. Have a great stay .

Great pic....thanks for posting .

Offerings are less varied, but seemed plentiful. We had two celebrations, and had tons of magical surprises. It was our 10th time staying CL and it was so nice to see familiar faces. Ivette in the morning is the best and mousekeeping was great. Everything was spotless. 13th visit and it was the best yet!!
Glad you had another great stay at the Poly .

The CM's in the lounge are very helpful and friendly.
Have a great time and enjoy the Poly .

We have only seen the tour groups in the parks but they seem to be much tamer than described on the boards. I hope this rain continues... It drives people out of the parks! I was expecting longer lines than we have encountered so far! Thanks for all the advice / input on these boards! We couldn't be happier with our resort choice!
You made a great choice choosing the Poly......glad you love the resort .

We just left Poly CL on Monday - 2nd floor. The sliding glass doors could not be opened. Both my husband and I tried. Could it be that they changed this with the renovations?

Same happened to me last trip. Am I not good enough? Although we were staying concierge so that might've been the reason. And we have been there before.
