Tip...talk to a CM, preferably a manager, an hour or more before the torch lighting ceremony. Pretty cool pixie dust for a first trip is what we got. DD got a special one off picture with the fire dancer (the warm guy in her vernacular.)

Once you're on the bus, ~18 minutes.

Kind of in the middle but closer to sunset point. It was a fantastic room location. Room number 2511.

I just switched my reservation to Poly for April 2014 with the new Disney Visa discount that just came out. It has been my top choice resort the entire time I have been researching, but was out of our price range. With the nice surprise of 35% off, I was able to book for my 30th birthday, adults only trip! The construction, while somewhat concerning is not going to rain on my parade. This is a foodie trip for us and we like to get up and eat breakfast, so any construction noise shouldn't be a bother!

6 months to go!!!

Just checked in. Had requested Fiji patio with a marina view. Got stuck with a Tokelau 2nd floor overlooking the not-so-quiet pool. We should be able to switch tomorrow. I am beat!

Very happy for you and hoping that construction disruptions will be minimal during your stay.

Just booked Poly CL for the end of Jan with the Disney Visa deal! Gotta love 35% off for our favorite resort. Counting down the months until another Tonga Toast
