You Girls crack me up!

I stayed at poly CL in April and May and it is wonderful

Dd walked into bath and said " ooh, nice tile!" It just looks classy.

The rooms are similar to old they just look "fresher".

The lounge is shaped the same but the carpet and chair coverings look great

I'll be at WDW that weekend as well - running the 10K that weekend

I was really surprised how expensive rooms were - AoA was almost $200/night I'm not sure I understand why late February is peak rates - not spring break yet and after President's Day.....

In regards to staying CL. One of our favorite little parts is getting to have the golden keys. Now that things are transitioning over to Magic Bands, do you think CL guests will get golden Magic Bands? I haven't seen that mentioned or pictured anywhere, but that would be so COOOOOL!!!!!

I just truly laughed out loud and had to read it to my dh. We're both 41, so Brady generationers. At least if you find that cursed tiki idol, remember to leave a trail of popcorn so you can find your way out.

Haha! Oh my gosh! That just made my night!

Seriously though, I didn't mind the old decor that much! I'm excited to see the new rooms in a couple days though!

At least that's what my husband and kids want to do. Can you imagine me in an RV??? That might go down as the most hilarious trip report EVER!
I don't want you to live through it, but I sure do want to read all about it!
