You guys will love it!!!! We will be there 9/5-9/9!!

We have only stayed in the Fiji longhouse which we love. Compared to Samoa, it's on the opposite side of the Volcano pool. We love the location of it but you might prefer Samoa.

Just call the resort reservations line and you can give them your request. I would put in a request for a certain longhouse. You can check out Tikimans website and see a map of the resort. You really can't go wrong with a lot of the longhouses. We like Fiji as it's right next to the GCH and you can request marina view, which is really nice, or I've also heard the other side has views as well. It's also close to the boat launch which we use quite a bit, it's especially great to use once MK closes and everyone is trying to leave at once.

Same here! Though our trip isn't until October so it should be back by then, I would think.

Shipping to the Poly

Does anyone have a physical address for the Poly to have water delivered? Also, when we stayed at the Beach Club it was considered a convention resort and they wanted to charge us for delivering the shipped water. Has anyone ordered water and from where is it the easiest/cheapest. Thanks..

Call the regular reservation number and tell them you want to add requests to your reservation. We stayed in Samoa and loved it as we found it very convenient to everything. It was just steps from the GCH, volcano pool, the beach, and Captain Cooks. But with that said, I don't think there's a bad longhouse as they are all great .

You would just call CRO: 407-W-DISNEY and tell them. My favorite standard rooms have been in Samoa and Fiji. Also I prefer 3rd floor so we have a balcony. Those would be my recommendations.
