Tahiti is delightfully quiet, great views, 2 minutes to TTC.

Unfortunately with the location of the regular cabanas even if they let you stay until the fireworks I'm pretty sure you would not be able to see them (there is a lot of foliage blocking the view of the lagoon from them).
If the premium cabana is still available for your trip (and construction hasn't started) based on Carlnix's review, their view of the fireworks wasn't completely unobstructed from there either - the little wooden structure on the end of the dock blocked it somewhat. Plus he complained that a lot of people kept trying to sit in their chairs and were quite rude with them!
All that being said, you can still watch the fireworks from the Poly without having to take your kids to the park. They pipe the sound track into the main beach. They also have a camp fire & movie on the beach every night. You could get the kids into their pj's, grab some lounge chairs early, watch the movie, EWP and then the fireworks. They will pause the movie when the EWP and fireworks both start.
The Poly has interior hallways, so they don't have the windows like at Pop, for example, with the windows along exterior corridors that you can decorate and others can see. The room "windows" at Poly are large sliding patio doors. If you have a first floor room you may be able to sit your stuffed animals on a table in front of your slider otherwise, if you have an upper floor no one would be able to see them.
You're welcome! We love the 'Ohana breakfast - it is a must-do every trip!
Thank you again! You really are amazing!
or a little too focused on Disney!! LOL
Thanks Rob for another fabulous thread!!!
I apologize for going over territory already covered, but I've seen references to construction and to longhouse renovation but can't find the source material. Can someone review the upcoming changes and known dates, if any? TIA
Just completed my booking.
18 nights at the Poly (gv) - July 2013.
Thank you Rob for the new thread! It looks great!
Question for those who have stayed at the Poly for New Years Eve...is there anything special that goes on? I know, obviously, I can watch the fireworks from the beach. We are staying theme park view - club level. Does anything special go on in the CL lounge?
This is the first time we are braving Christmas/NYE week. We will be spending most of our time at the Poly! We stayed at the Poly for the first time in July, and it was just fabulous! Thank you to everyone on this thread who helped me in planning!
I think The Poly is the right choice because it is so easy to get to and from MK. I also think the CL is a good idea because the lounge will save you money on breakfast, drinks, snacks, ect. Also remember The Poly rooms are the biggest on property along with CR. You probably won't spend to much time in the room with having the lounge, the beach, two pools, and GCH. I would request a patio, it might feel like a little more space. Plus no stairs or elevator.
I am seriously about to kick Photobucket to the curve! It has crashed my computer three times now and I have lost two very long TR entries. I have gotten wise and typed onto a word doc and try to add my pictures later but Photobucket is not letting me resize the pics
I am no rookie and this stuff. Before Rob set up the Poly thread I did it and had no problems with adding multiple pics and so forth. UGH! I am trying to upload to a different site so we will see what happens.
I just want to share my TR
That is exciting! How I would love to spend that much time at the Poly!
Great new thread, Rob!
Just have to say that in just 72 hours we will be on a plane flying to WDW for our first stay at the Poly AND our first stay at club level. We will celebrate DD's 10th birthday next Saturday. DD and DS15 still have NO IDEA WE ARE GOING!! I am beyond proud of myself for being able to keep it a secret! Bags are packed and everything but they are clueless. I LOVE IT!!!
Good for you for keeping the secret! We are doing the same thing and I know it is not easy! In 1 week and 1 day we will be revealing it too! That just gave me butterflies typing it out!
Hope you have a magical time!
Thanks- also great suggestions/input. The larger room makes me more comfortable with the set up. I don't spend a ton of time getting ready in the bathroom, nor do my kids- they are still too little for all the primping. It's DH in the single bathroom that could hold us up---you know how dudes can be. But thinking the lounge would give us some space to hang out in while he's doing whatever it is he does in there. Plus I like club levels. They make me feel extra spoiled. And while I can't afford going to 2 rooms, I could go up to CL.
And I just want to read it! Esp since I'm eyeing the same time you just went, annnnnddddd have always said "never ever ever in August..." ha! Hope photobucket starts to play nice!
HOW EXCITING Jenny!!! it will be an amazing reveal, I am sure!
Can't believe I've only got 25 days until the POLY....it's going so fast now!
Hello! Can anyone tell me what the updated breakfast options are in the club level lounge? I've seen photos of cream cheese Danishes and cinnamon rolls but I saw a recent video that didn't have either. those are our favorite breakfast options... Help!
Breakfast is basically two types of pastries such as mini muffins, bagels, cinnamon rolls or croissants. They rotate two throughout the week. There is cream cheese, butter, and peanut butter available.
There is fresh fruit salad with melon and grapes. Hot oatmeal with dried blueberries or cherries and almonds and brown sugar.
There is a variety of cereals with milk, skim or 2%
Variety of juices like orange, and a punch mixture. Coffee and teas
You can ask for yogurt from the cast members. They also have apples, oranges and bananas available throughout the entire day.
If your child or you need soy milk or have allergies you should inform the IPO so they can make arrangements to have things available suited to your dietary needs.
I hope that helps!
