We are staying at the Poly for the first time in June and I couldn't be more excited. My husband and I have been married almost 10 years and have 3 beautiful kids but the last 10 years have been a struggle, emotionally and financially. We decided when we had our first child that I would stay home with the kids but that choice was the most financilly rewarding choice. We would never have made it if it hadn't been for my mom and all her help, not only financially but also with support and babysitting. Adult conversion is taken for granted until you no long have it. We owe her so much. Well...my husband started a new job this year making close to 3 times as much has he has in the past. We have gotten our debts paid down, money put back for a rainy day, and actually started saving for retirement, which I thought we'd never be able to do. So we decided to take my mom on a trip to WDW and pay for the whole thing as a "Thank You" gift for everything she has done. She loves Disney!!! So in June, my mom, DS9, DD7, DS2, and me will be going to Disney for 7 wonderful days. My husband has to work so it will just be us girls and the kids. Now I'm trying to figure out a few details about the Poly. We have never stayed there before but my mom has wanted ot stay there every since it was built but she wouldn't spend the money on herself. I'm so excited to be able to just this dream of hers come true. What are the patios on the ground floor of the Poly like? Do they have doors to the outside and chairs so you can go outside and sit? Are there any rooms in any of the buildings that are close enough to the pool to see from the pool from the patio or balcony? During DS2's nap time, grandma is going to still in the room while I take DS9 and DD7 to the pool. We would like to request a room close enough to a pool that she could watch the older to kids swim once the little one goes to sleep. What longhouse should we request to be able to do that? I'm just trying to figure out the best location for us. Any other tips about the Poly would be great!!
