    While you may not get turndown service in non-CL rooms, I find that when they clean my room midday, it is just as nice :) I stay executive floors for business but have never stayed CL at Disney but the service I get is just ok, I wouldn't pay for them to turn down my bed at night. I find that the clean room and fresh towels midday is just fine. Of course, I do want to stay CL!!!! And I will definitely try it, but just wanted to give you a non-CL opinion :goodvibes

    Hey guys, I don't know if any of you check out TripAdvisor, but there is a review on there from May this year and the person stayed at Poly. She posted a pic of her room view and I can't for the lift of me figure out where it is. Am I allowed to post the pic on here to see if you guys know which LH she might have been staying in?

    If you are talking about the first review it looks like it may be first floor of Tuvalu on the Lagoon side.

    If you have made the reservation yourself, call disney and ask them to add the request onto your reservation. If you have gone through a travel agent, talk to them about adding the request. You can make the request any time you want.

    Wow! I couldn't help but notice that there weren't many people in the pictures posted by Ronald Duck..off season really makes a difference in crowd levels, doesn't it???

    I know the feeling. But I'll tell you that the Poly is really, really lovely, but quite different than the GF.:cloud9:

    After staying at the GF a few times, we tried the Poly. And I kept second-guessing that decision in the months before we left. Then we tried RPC at the GF, and I kept second guessing that decision because we had such a wonderful time at the Poly.

    Now I think we'll just go back and forth, taking turns...;)

    Like I said, they are very, very different from one another, but I like them both. I hope you do, too!:goodvibes

    Does anyone have experience ordering a special treat to be delivered to the room? I was thinking about a dessert sampler, or a tray of the chocolate covered strawberries, or ?? Is that done through the in-room dining?

    Yes, there were way fewer people than during our previous Poly visit 10 years ago in early August...but crowds picked up everywhere by the start of Labor Day weekend.
