You sound like your Trip is going so well and you are having a great time. How wonderful.

We've loved the Poly ever since Poly & Contemporary were the only onsite resorts. It's always been special and so glad it's now a Home Resort.
There's just something about Poly.....

Differing viewpoint: The Poly is a complete dump. Staying there will be a miserable experience for most people. Especially, say, the third week of November. I'd highly recommend anybody having a room booked that week cancel and stay somewhere else

Thanks for sharing!!! Glad you had so much fun.
We love the Poly pool too.
That's too bad about them only running one side for rides...
Yeah, everything sure changes when those kiddos turn 10, huh!

....DH and I stayed there 4 years ago for our first trip with no kids! We're going to stop there in August for 3 days as part of another trip. We look forward to it. We too wish it had 1-2 bedrooms that's why we don't stay there a lot.

We did 2 nights at Poly for New Year, not this past New Year but the one before. It was DH and I and our twin DDs who were turning 19. I love the resort, the theme and dining. The rooms are lovely and I love the layout (especially for 4 of us, 2 being college girls). But the beds were not comfy and we found it a noisy resort as we could hear other rooms' doors slam shut (heavy doors) and toilets flush and little kids running and being loud in the hallway. Plus it is kinda too spread out and the walk from Tokelau to the main building or over to TTC is out in the elements and not super quick. And you have to go over to, is it Morea, to do laundry (would have been wonderful if they put a stackable W/D in the big spacious bathroom since there are 2). But great thing about DVC is we all have our differing favorites....there is something for everyone. Our fave is BWV and many folks don't like it there.

But thanks for the nice TR, OP. We were just there for the MM event too. Fun time.
