Thanks for the reply! I would love to see them from the Poly Beach, but may just chose CR to be safe.

We were going to add a few days at WDW on at the beginning of that trip. However, now that it's fall we're all missing WDW and the Poly (especially with all of the changes coming) so we've booked a short trip with the room only discount for the first week of December (and will cancel the WDW portion of our cruise trip). While it won't exactly be at Christmas, who cares? It's Disney and what a great way to get into the spirit of the season! Did I mention I'm excited?!
Congrats on a Christmas trip . We have been twice in December and it is amazing. All of the resorts are decorated as are the parks and everything is just beautiful .

Yay for getting back to the Poly .

Have you been following the cruise line thread? I found a lot of helpful info from there. I would highly recommend taking some Bonine 2 days before sailing and then everynight of the cruise incase you get sea sick. We didn't have a problem with getting sea sick. Also, read through the Navigator or you may miss some good things. We missed a towel animal class on the "sea day" where they show you how to make the towel animals, that would have been interesting, there was also a cooking class that morning that I would have liked to attend. Also, they will post the day and time of the captain signing if that's something you are interested in. On the "sea day" we just so happened to buy a frame and the cruise ship ornament and the cashier mentioned to us that the captain was signing things in an hour and 30 minutes. I am so glad she mentioned that!! There again, we did not take the time to read through the Navigator and would have missed out if we had not been told. We had him sign the frame and the bottom of the ornament!
I have read from others that CC was the best part of the cruise. We are only doing a 3 night so no sea days for us, but I am very excited to experience CC. I thought about getting a cabana, but I saw the price was around $300-$400 ......so we're not doing that. Thanks for the Bonine suggestion. My DH and I have cruised before with no problems, but our two DSs never have, so that will come in handy for them just in case . Also, thanks for the heads up on reading the Navigator as well as the captain's signing.....that would be great to get a couple of things signed. Congrats on booking another cruise for next August and I hope you are able to take the extra one in May .

Hope you're having a great time and enjoying the Poly .

We had a moment of panic this week that only you guys can appreciate.

We are staying at the Poly on a convention rate beginning Oct. 3 and DH came home from work and said his contact found him a room at the YC and we were going to switch.

Cue panic mode.

CUE. PANIC. MODE.

We've already done online check-in, got our MagicBands, made FP+, dining is all done based on the Poly as our home base. After discussing with the Disney convention folks, we decided switching was going to be dicey with the MagicBands and stuck with our original reservation. Whew!

If you don't mind me asking what convention and is the rate a really good one. I have heard of some great deals at poly and contemporary for conventions. At some point I would love to stay at the poly again, alas I think a convention rate may be the only way!

We were just there September 5-9. We were in the Fiji longhouse and the coffee maker in the room is a Cuisinart. It's the kind that can make 2 single cups at once. The coffee is Joffrey's.
