OK guys, I had always thought I would hate the Poly and never looked into it but these pictures are phenomenal and have totally changed my mind. A fellow DIS member and friend keeps telling me to look into the Poly up until now I have been hemming and hawing! Does anyone have any pics of rooms? How about suggestions for what to request when booking?

I just love the evening pics! I have never been to the Poly at night before, so I didn't realize how pretty it was at night.

I was thinking the same thing. My nighttime pics always come out blurry.

Thanks!! I have a Canon Powershot S80. Some of the photos are taken with the nitetime setting and some with the fireworks. The camera was sitting on the rail of our balcony, so it was steady. You have to get it steady or they be blurry.

I don't think it is very easy to find an S80 anymore. They have newer cameras out now. My dad bought a Canon G7 and it is great! I think most Canons are good cameras. The ones with image stabilization features are better choices.

After 3 visits to the Polynesian to eat dinner during our most recent vacation, my DH & I instantly fell in love with this resort. This will be the site where we stay during our trip next year. I am so excited & can't wait!

Just got back from the Poly Thursday night and we miss it already. My DS3 crid when we pulled into our subdivision, he wanted to go back to the Poly. Iwill post some pics tonight after we put them on photobucket. We stayed in Samoa but on the quiet side with a tree blocking our balcony. Actually they gave us a 2nd floor facing the volcano pool but the room needed a major cleaning so we moved.

DD-7 and I made our 34-link paper chain this morning to count down until we head to the Poly! Thank you all for the gorgeous photos-- especially more room photos. I have stayed at the Poly twice, but my family has never been and I love having all these great photos to show them!
