Smile Help with room request

We re flying out next sunday & will be staying at the Poly for the first time to celebrate our Disney wedding/Honeymoon

We normally fax the resort with room requests before we leave & in previous attempts in doing so have a few times been lucky to have them met However we no very little about the Poly to have an idea wheres a nice quite location .

Can any one give us some recommendations?

We ve booked a Garden View room, really want to have a balcony in a fairly quite location with a nice view.

Any help would greatly be appreciated

Thanks in advance.
Make a back up plan just in case. I've found that when I can give the CM other choices I might like at check in I usually don't have any problem getting where I want to be in the end.

Congratulations! Have a wonderful wedding and a magical honeymoon!

Congratulations on your successful wedding (well, you did get married, right? So it was successful ) and I hope you're having a truly magical honeymoon.

If peace and quiet is what you are seeking along with a balcony, I would request Tahiti. All three floors of this building have a patio (first) or balcony (second & third). The GV rooms overlook lush vegetation and pathways.

Here's a little for your honeymoon--maybe you will be one of the lucky ones who scores an upgrade! Congrats and enjoy your trip.

Just checked out Tahiti on Tikiman's site but noticed that they mentioned it to be great for Lagoon & MK views. We ve only booked a Garden View room though, can you still get Garden View rooms in Tahiti with a balcony?

Wishful thinking re the upgrade, fingers crossed

Yes, one-half of the building is GV, the other LV/MKV. All rooms have either patio or balcony.

Yes, all 2nd and 3rd floor rooms have balconies in this longhouse. The rooms are also larger than in some of the older buildings.

Good luck!

Clarification (for me), Lagoon View rooms obviously have Lagoon Views But is it possible with SOME LV rooms to see MK? Just not a clear, unobstructed view? From what I've been reading, MK can be seen from some of the LV rooms. You just may have to look to the side. Or am I wrong?

We booked a xmas bounceback offer (less days than our last trip), but I'm not entirely sure we are going until I get the airline tickets. But, DH helped me make the ticker (he's never done that before!), so that's a good sign that we won't have to cancel this one! We loved the Poly, but thought that the GF would be nicely decorated for xmas.

Be careful with Tahiti/GV. We once requested Tahiti/upper level/corner room and got just what we asked for - a corner room on the east end with a horrible partial parking lot view AND the smoker's bench right in front of us.

Tikiman's site is great for viewing overhead images of the longhouses. You can really tell what kind of view each longhouse offers.

Thanks mmmears. Sounds pretty similar to what we experienced last Summer. Not sure why IPO is refusing to provide us with a menu. Kind of irritating to be honest. I will be very dissapointed if I show up and the menu is exactly as it has been for the past year or so. Not dissapointed that the menu is the same, but that IPO would not just say so so that we can plan accordingly.
