We just returned late last night from 9 days at the Poly. I will work on a trip report later, but what a wonderful time even with the up and down weather. First two days cold, beautiful weather in between for 5 days, and the last two days COLD and rainy. The weather report stated that Orlando got more rain in those two days then the whole month of November...lucky us. However, here is the summary.... 1. ONLINE CHECK-IN is fantastic. I was the only one who went to this line and was done in about 3 minutes. (About a dozen were in the other line). We got everything thing we asked for: Samoa, 1st floor on the side of the volcano pool. We were room 1610. The view was blocked by some shubbary, but that did give us some nice privacy. Plus, from the Volcano pool we could go back to our personal bathroom instead of using the cold public restroom. 2. Booked a trip for our November/December 2010 with our in-room deal with the 40% discount!!! 3. Crowds were not that bad, but I think people our getting pissy and selfish. We are fast walkers and I would like the slower walkers to be more aware of the space they are taking up. They tend to walk stretched across the whole pathway and then get mad at you when you say "excuse me to get by" and wonder why the hurry. A few people said some impolite comments that I did not appreciate. We are not in a hurry that is how we walk. 4. Free Dining! We ate some wonderful meals and picked up a cook book - willing to share recipes for anyone interested. My favorite meal was Jikos....had challenges getting there, but the atmosphere was beautiful and the food superb. All of the adults had the filet migon with the white chedder macaroni and cheese. I had the red wine sauce on the side because I had read that it had a barbacue flavor to it and I am not a fan, but WOW! Our challenges were though that we were exhausted and m my 3 year old to no one's knowledge had diarrea and I was running back and forth to the bathroom with her. Thus, without checking due to franticness I ordered a glass of wine that was recommended without looking at the price...opps....$28, but it was good! However, way to much food for us we were tired of feeling stuffed and bloated. We won't do it again. Ate at Jikos, CRT, Le Cellier (great soup), Teppan Edo, Chef Mickey's and missed Coral Reef (went to Planet Hollywood - so, so but did it so our son could go to Disney Quest). Anyway - we are now all hooked on the Poly!
