I also LOVE the location of the Hawaii building and watching fireworks from the lounge. For these things I give up the view and stay garden view club. We don't spend too much awake time in our room. That being said, if you don't think that you would take advantage of those perks and would be spending time enjoying your room then the view would be more important to you.

Good luck making the decision!
Thanks- my family include 4 girls 7 and under (one infant) that love princess everything, so seeing the castle when they fall asleep/wake up was my first thought, but we'll have 3 full and 2 partial "resort" days so the CL question came up! I'm having so much troule figuring out what to do!

My DH just surprised me with upgrading us to Poly! I am so excited as this has always been my dream resort. We've been there before for Ohana so I'm a little familiar with the resort but after looking at the map, I'm still not sure which building to request. I do know that we want to be close to the GCH but also want a decent view.

Could someone post or PM the direct link to the rehab schedule for 2013, please? I looked on Tiki site and couldn't find even when I searched. We're booked for 9 days the first part of June and I'm curious how this will impact our stay. The main pool being down would be a huge issue for us but I'm not so sure if any other aspects would be troublesome.

on the tiki site, click on each longhouse's page. there is a field, in the top part of teh description that lists "last rehab date" and "next rehab". it is there. you have to go to each longhouse to review each of the dates. I made a schedule on paper, that lists all the longhouses scheduled rehabs in 2013. I don't want to request a house that is under construction during my stay, but would ideally like a refurbished one too!

Even more excited to stay here in June. We have been walking here because of staying at shades of green.

First floor Samoa is where we stay every time! You can go right from you patio to pool or captain cooks in 30 seconds. Great for morning refillable mug trips, afternoon pool breaks and you feel in like you're in the middle of all the magic. IMO Samoa has the best GV rooms and I wouldn't mind trying a third floor to get a view of the volcano pool and GCH! Glad you had a great time

If location is most important, but not necessarily Samoa specifically you could just request "first floor, near GCH". Most longhouses near the GCH are still going to put you near the volcano pool (though not necessarily right beside it)
Thank you!!

If your choice is between standard TPV and LV CL, I would go for the CL. We too love staying CL! We take full advantage of the lounge (snacks, drinks, breakfast ...) and love that it gives us some extra space to spread out with the kids. The only difference between TPV & LV is that you do not have an unobstructed view of the castle. Usually there is a tree in the way or part of the island that's out in the lagoon. You will usually still be able to see the fireworks, castle etc, you just won't have a clear dead on view. You will also be able to have the full on view of the castle from the lounge.

It's so nice to sit in the lounge having your breakfast while gazing out at the castle to start your day, or to sit with a snack for a few quiet moments for a mid-afternoon break.

We have an early CRT reservation on our first morning. Would you take the boat or the monorail from Poly?

Depending on how early your reservation is at CRT, I would take the monorail--the boats may not be running early in the a.m. Barring any monorail issues, it would be faster anyway.

So glad to be back!

I've been off the Dis for about 6 months. Hubs and I are planning a trip for this June and so I am jumping back in! Didn't realize how much I missed you all!

Off to fix up my signature...
