No there are no DVD players in the rooms. I know you can ask for one when you are in club level but I am not sure if you are staying non club level.

Checking in to garden view at poly in 3 days!

What is the best way to request connecting rooms with my brother's family? Online check-in, fax the resort, or wait until we are at the resort? I'm not too fussed about any other room requests. We had requested the reservations linked and connecting rooms back when it was booked, but not sure if that is enough.

TIA!

Call the main reservations line with your brother's confirmation number and ask that his reservation be linked with yours in the system. Then request connecting rooms.

DVD players are installed in all Club Level rooms under the TV but not in standard rooms.

I had heard you could ask for them at club level but never knew they were actually in the room. Shows you how much attention I paid when we were there in August.

My check in paperwork showed no $$$ amounts anywhere on in back in September.

Just returned from my first ever Poly stay. I've always wanted to stay there since a character breakfast there 27 years ago, but it was always out of our budget with 5 kids. So now that the kids are grown, my husband and I treated ourselves to a three day stay, before the Poly changes happen. It was everything I had hoped it would be I had requested Samoa longhouse, king bed, third floor so I would have a balcony. Made those requests on my initial reservation, also did online check-in and requested Samoa, balcony (only two choices allowed online) and we got all our requests I was soooooooooooo excited and the room was perfect. We were overlooking the quiet pool and loved that view. We loved the resort as much as I thought I would. It was beautiful, quiet, the CMs were all very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and updated, bell services helped us move in and out of our room very efficiently. The construction did not affect us at all. In Samoa, we wouldn't have even known it was going on. Yes, from the beach at the volcano pool, it was obvious, big mounds of dirt and backhoes, etc. Also the one day we walked to the transportation center to catch the monorail to Epcot the fencing around the closed parking lot was very ugly. But for the most part construction was not a big issue. I am so very glad to have had this trip and to have stayed there while it was still the Poly I had always dreamed about

You have to ask to check out the DVDs but the players are mounted under the TV. It was still in the same place after the redesign in my room in May.

I learn something new every day, I never realized it was there on our last stay.

Can you request a DVD player for a standard room? Or maybe I'll bring my laptop. I have a few DVDs I still need my kids to see and there is forecast for a lot of rain. If we get time I'd like to show my kids who Lilo & Stitch and Chip & Dale and Aladdin & Jasmin are...


Does anyone know where I can find the activity schedule for November?

They do not have DVD players available for standard rooms but the jacks to hook into the TV are right in front.

The activity schedule will be in your check in packet.

We have decided on a trip next fall for F&W and basically love disney at Halloween time. The problem is I just cannot justify the cost for our biggest trip in three years to WDW by staying at the Poly with all that is going on there.

DD and DH are demanding a monorail resort but neither are fans of the GF and I am not a fan of CR at all. I am trying to convince them that if we stay at GF we can still walk to the poly and enjoy the dining and so forth.

Personally I would like to jump to an EPCOT resort but neither of them will entertain it.

I know there are greater tragedies in the world but I'm perplexed as to what to do

Advice and suggestions welcome
Howdy!! Nice to see you here again! My husband is a diehard Poly believer because he says that way he can 'deal' with Disney BUT I have managed to get him to stay at Boardwalk and Beach Club especially because we can get a 1 bedroom villa!! During discount times, and sometimes non-discount, we have found we can get a villa for the same price as the Poly standard room And I am so NOT the clown pool fan but I tried it and… I didn't like it but not because of the clown face!! It was bumpy on my bottom! We really liked their villa pool at BW though and spent a lot of time there. As for Beach Club, the pool is amazing - especially for older kids and NOTHING can beat walking to your room after Illuminations and not rushing to a bus or monorail! Just a thought from me! I have not stayed at GF or Contemporary though - neither appeal to me as somewhere to stay but I do like to visit them while I'm at the Poly. And I'd stay at the Poly during construction if I were to pick a monorail resort!

Good luck with the decision!

Will do. And if you see a mom with short brown hair and two kids saying "Michael, Michael, Michael!" repeatedly, semi stunned husband trailing slightly behind her, that's me!
