Is the pool heated at the poly? Going in November and want to know if we should pack our swimsuits. Our youngest is severely disabled and doesn't handle cold water well so it really would have to be heated. Thx in advance!

Shameless ticker posting

I am just hoping that I stay healthy! EVERY vacation I get sick the first couple of days or right before. DH says I stress out too much and he's right. Just got to get through next week - an entire week in Phoenix for work. No matter how much I disinfect the area around me on the plane, or cover my mouth with a scarf as to not breath in the germs, I will end up next to the person with the nasty cough. And of course I need to sort out all the transportation for the kids for school and sports so DH doesn't worry. And load up the house with food and prepared meals. And get all the laundry done and the house clean and the cat shampooed and the litter box cleaned. And that last minute rescheduled soccer game on Sunday night that I got asked to bring snacks to at the last minute. And just got a call from my son's teacher - 3rd call this week. Ugh...yup, might get sick again...

I'm getting stressed just reading this lol - I know we women think we have to do it all, but get the kids/hubby to help with the prepared meals, it could be fun. Don't know what the 3rd teacher call is about, but if he's in trouble, cleaning the cat box seems fitting

I am a happy girl. I just rebooked the Poly for December with the dining plan. They just added it to my already discounted room. I know most say the dining plan is not worth it but for us it really is. I have 3 big eaters and all of us like steak and seafood which are usually the most expensive things on the menu. I am really looking forward to trying some restaurants we haven't because of price.

Wow I did not realize the other things that come with a package plan with dining. There are tons of freebies for stuff my kids have wanted to do and a lot of discounts too. I think more than ever this was worth it.

Okay so I'm going 11/13-11/20 staying at poly for me and DH honeymoon. I'm finding all these pictures of construction and closings and I have to say I am a little upset. I'm paying close to 520 a night and disney has not mentioned one thing to me about any construction. Is it worth changing hotels? I know you don't spend the whole time at the resort but its our honey moon we do want to spend half days lounging and relaxing at the resort too. It's DH first time and i want it to be magical not full of fences. What are your thoughts on staying at the poly with construction?

"Cold-FX" is your friend! Do they sell that in the US? If so, it helps!

Airebourne is also another good product to keep you from getting sick. I know several people who swear by it.

I was also told today by two CM's that magic bands would be available in November and December. I was told once a resort tests it it stays on it. I am so excited as this will make our trip just that much easier. She also said the whole magic band project may be totally live to all resorts by then. They don't have specifics yet but the talk is that it will.

I am also having a BLAST picking out places for the dining plan. When I told my kids about the extra's like Disney Quest, Mini Golf, and the arcade card they got wicked excited. They have always wanted to go to Disney Quest and of course what boy doesn't like video games LOL. With all the extra's and the ability to eat whatever we want, the dining plan really does make sense for us.

I was just there this morning and I don't think the current construction fences are that bad at all. They are covered with green screening material and I think it looks much better than the big walls around the Grand Floridian DVC construction area! I'm not sure what November will bring, but IMO what I've seen so far is not worth changing hotels for. Just keep your eye on new posts and pics so you know what to expect. :-)

We loved our magic bands! Didn't think I would at first but they were great! And being able to make ride ressies was great!

I am so looking forward to not having to pull out ten thousand cards ever time we do something and risk losing them. The FP+ is so great because you can pre-plan your most important rides and you don't have to get there at the crack of dawn just to be able to ride or get the fast pass for the ride.
