Just switched from CR to The Poly! Sept 8-15th! We have stayed at Poly CL twice & DH was pining for the Poly so went from a CR Tower Room Bay Lake View to Poly Standard View.. Lol

Really going to miss CL but we are very fortunate to be going back to the Poly!

Congrats on the switch. We've only stayed GV but are trying CL in December and I'm excited, but I would be just as happy if we were doing a standard room because the Poly is an amazing resort no matter what .

good for you! We only stayed at poly once but had a garden view but I was convinced it was lagoon view! Lol. The view was awesome. I think we would only do garden view at poly!

On a side note...I wanted to know what you thought of cr after your trip! Lol.

I am busy planning for September 2014!

This is our first 4th of July week at poly so I don't know if its normal but they've roped out an area on the beach with chairs for CL guests only. I'm pleased with this, I think, cause we couldn't see the water parade at all from our patio last night due to all the people, so we may go in the reserved area.

Also, there are signs in the lounge expressing it's for CL guests only, and a CM has been asking to see room keys. I talked to a CM about this and she said they have a huge problem with people sneaking in, especially at holidays.

I've also heard rumor they will deviate from the normal menu and have traditional 4th of July food. I'll know for sure soon enough!

Tonga Longhouse

Does anyone have any pictures or info on the layout of the Tonga building? We're debating (for next summer) booking 2-3 CL rooms in Hawaii or a Princess or Ambassador Suite in Tonga. I've only been able to find a few pictures from MaryT of the Princess Suite which said it overlooks the lagoon, and I found one YouTube video that QUICKLY showed one of the Ambassador Suites, but it never mentioned where it was in the building or what the view was (although, I think he did say the monorail is out there when he pointed to the window?) Does anyone have any other pictures, videos, or a building layout for any of the suites? I really prefer the views and lounge associated with the Hawaii rooms, but if we'd need 2 or 3 rooms the suite would end up being less expensive and provide us with a living/dining/kitchen area.


Thanks!!
