Not dissapointed that the menu is the same, but that IPO would not just say so so that we can plan accordingly.
I understand. What IPO did send us was the times of the food offerings. Like, 7-10am breakfast, 11-4 snacks, etc. But they did not say what was included in them. My guess is so that they can change it at any minute and not have guests complaining that they aren't serving what was expected. The days of the week on Tikiman's site still did correspond with what they were offering, though. Hope this helps!

I'm pretty certain that IPO still has a menu, though, even if they won't provide it. My mom's vegetarian and the IPO consulted one last month during my call to discuss if there would be any options for her in the lounge. She went over day by day menus.

That makes sense. I suppose they can't win. Some people will be upset if they can't get the menu ahead of time and others would complain if something on the menu isn't served. No win situation.

Like BCV23 said, you are exactly right. I had a LV room in the Tuvalu longhouse that had the bottom 1/3rd of Cinderella's castle obstructed by Beachcomber Island but I could see the Main Street train station and also Space Mountain.

The GF is obscenely (in a good way) decorated for Christmas! One of the things I loved about staying at the Poly is that a quick monorail ride away we could enjoy the traditional Christmas decorations at the GF. Be sure to check and see if they have roasted chestnuts. Yum!

Just wanted to post that the IPO made all of our reservations almost to the tee. We got every restaurant we wanted and the times were off by at most 10 minutes on a few. I'm loving concierge so far.

My sister is a vegetarian and we are staying club level this December. Was you mother pleased with the offerings or did they do something special for her?

Hi!
I just wanted to jump in here and say I just booked the POLY for our June trip!!

It will be our first time staying here. I requested Aotearoa building and a room with a balcony. I hope that was a good choice? We are not going to the parks and will just be at the resort for 4 days to enjoy swimming and relaxing!(we are DVC'ers and we just went in Jan and will be back in Nov so no parks this time!)

I plan on reading this entire thread tonight so I can learn everything I can about this resort!!

Sounds like a lot of fun. So far, my wife and I have had two action packed trips to WDW. On a trip like this, do you resort hop to do a variety of dining options at other resorts (which are your faves?) and what else do you do. Even after two trips, I don't feel like I have experienced everything that the parks have to offer, so I wondered what you would do on this trip?

Our (wonderful) IPO at the CR (she is also at the GF) sent me this response today regarding my request for specific lounge offerings and times:

"Unfortunately, we do not have a standard menu for the lounges as offerings are subject to change, and in the case of the evening service, the hors d'oeuvres, sides offerings, and children's selections change daily. If you have any allergy concerns, I'd be happy to research which items may be of a problem and should be avoided."

Then she followed-up with the standard offerings and times. I suspect the same answer is being given to guests at the other club levels.

I think you are correct there. We also asked at AKL and were given the standard list of serving times. I really think that they don't want to be held accountable if they decide to change something or if they run out of an item. My guess is that you wont be able to get more detailed information.
