Balconies

Hi! Would someone be able to tell me if all rooms at the Grand Floridan and Poly rooms all have balconies? We've stayed at BLT and BCV and have had a balcony so now it's sort of a prerequisite because we loved sitting out there early in the morning and evening! Thank you!

At the Polynesian, many of the second floor rooms do not have balconies.

The majority of the rooms at the GF have a balcony, with the exception of some turret rooms. Not all rooms at the Poly have balconies as some longhouses don't have them on the 2nd floor.

At the poly the first floor has a patio, the second floor has a sliding door to nowhere, and the third floor has a nice balcony. Most of the GF do have a balcony, except for some of the corner rooms if I remember correctly.

Depends on the building at Poly. Some second floors do have a full balcony, the buildings that are close to the TTC.
