We are gonna take 1 carryon bag with us so we have swimsuits and my welcome to the world decorations for my kiddos.
Wow! I never knew that - will definitely use that tip if we do the Hyatt again. Thanks so much!

A pool noodle also makes an excellent bed rail. You just slide it under the fitted sheet.

I can relate. But at the same time if we stayed CL aka if we could afford that, then I would feel like I was missing out on eating around the world. Yeah I know the lounge food isn't a meal but do I really need to get my fill of hors devours and then go get dinner?

I know people love CL for a variety of reasons but I know for me it would be a waste of money. S I for one am happy to just have a regular garden view room.

That's how we felt about our two CL stays (CR and BWI.) You either end up taking full advantage of the lounge OR you end up enjoying all the great restaurants WDW has to offer, but we really didn't have the appetites for both. We found it was so nice to have the breakfast options and occasionally we'd be around for the evening dessert time, but that little bit wasn't really worth it to us for the money it cost to stay CL. We didn't really take full advantage of other CL things since I LOVE to do all the planning myself, so staying CL again is something we debate since we're not sold on it being the best use of our money.

I have been wanting to stay at the Poly for a long time, and I always said when I did I would stay CL but when I went to book and say the huge price difference and as there is just 2 of us the value is not there.

It seems most save by having breakfast in the lounge but we like to enjoy a nice TS breakfast while on Vacation in addition we are both on meds so can not partake of the alcoholic beverages which is also a big selling point for CL.

Eating at the Various restaurants is a favorite of ours while in Disney and seems CL for us anyway would be a waste.

We will be celebrating our 15th Wedding anniversary and my 40th birthday. Our reservation is noted with this info.

Will we automatically get fresh flower leis, or should I go ahead and place an order for them?

Thanks!

That's a good question! We've celebrated many anniversaries and birthdays at the Poly and we've never been given fresh flower leis. So I'm not sure how that works.

I don't believe I've seen fresh flower leis at the Poly in years!

I know upon arriving they will give you leis and sometimes at Ohanas when they know you have a birthday or anniversary they give you leis but none of them are fresh flowers..

I didn't even know about them until I read this article:

http://land.allears.net/blogs/kristi...esort_off.html

I'd love to have some so I will probably just go ahead and place an order. Now to find the number for floral!

It says they can be ordered at the gift shop... You can get the Poly resort number and ask for the gift shop and place an order there I guess..

We go every yr for our anniversary in Sept and I've never seen them! Ill be in the look out now!
