    And a few views from our favorite room, 3507:

    And sadly, this year--as Carl will remember, was much more wet than normal. In fact, Florida broke a record for rainfall AND it never rains like that in May--at least according to the locals. . .just our luck that year. :sad2:

    I have so many more room views, but unfortunately they are not uploaded. These views are pretty representative of what you get in Hawaii though. :worship::love:

    Thanks. Here's a few more I found from the room ...

    This one isn't from the room, but while I'm posting pictures I thought I would put it up - it's one of my favourites from this fall and it makes me smile :) - the MK taken from the ferry.

    Those TPV room pics have a really cool look to them Tess, almost like they're vintage (the lighting or exposure or something?). :thumbsup2

    All of these pics being shared confirm that the outside of Poly is gorgeous...anyone care to share actual ROOM photos? I feel like there aren't a lot of them on the poly pics thread and that is what I consider to be most important since you have to live in it...if you've got pics, please share!!!!!

    There are a bunch in post #3 on the first page of this thread. They are accurate...all rooms look just like that. I will try to dig out some of mine, though.

    OK, this one was taken from between the beds looking out toward the balcony:

    Gives you an idea of the size of the room and balcony (I hope).

    Have you seen the ones on the first page of the thread? I don't really have any. I think most people don't bother because really the rooms are all the same. What you see there is pretty much what you get! And that's not a bad thing - we have always found our room to be in good condition, clean, roomy & comfortable.

    I prefer to see actual people's pics as opposed to ones that are put out by Disney which are obviously going to look great. ;). So, if anyone has their actual pics that they've taken, I'd love to see them

    Actually I think the pics Rob has used on the info posts are mostly photos that guests have contributed over the years to the thread. And honestly, that's what the rooms really look like.

    And I will second what maiapapaya said, the rooms are all pretty much the same. The exceptions would be the bathroom views in Tahiti, Rapa Nui and a few in Tokelau where the bathrooms are larger with double sinks.

    Love everyone's photos! I actually don't have a lot of photos of the rooms though. I did take a bunch last time but then my camera reached its max on the second day so I had to delete a bunch (including the room shots). Here's some photos though:

    Poly beach with a year-round Poly resident :)

    Our AMAZEMENT at the monorail hours (because there were supposed to be closing one hour after 'normal' park time and they were open LATER!!! Worked out well since this was our MNSSHP night!!)

    Fantastic pictures everyone! This is all making me homesick and jealous of the CL. We will be sticking with the GV again this year, but this is two trips in one year and we will be staying for 11 days.

    This one is not the Poly, but I made it my background during the fall.
