hi friends i need ur advice please. the polynesian resort is $4000 for 6 days 1 night. pop would b $725 for the same. my mom says if we change and not stay in the poly at all we could stay an extra day/night...maybe 2. she said since its November bcuz in the summer we do use the resort alot cuz we spend morning and night in the parks but then the resort all afternoon for the pool or w/e since its hot and crowdes in park. but nov we'll b in the park all day practically. my mom just asked what i think and i said what do *u* think she said i dont know yet. we both love poly but i know she wont use the pool much in nov. to me poly IS just as good as Epcot or ak or hs. but i cant believe how much it costs!!!! and for value season!!! idrc what my mom decides cuz its so much.my aunt will still b at the poly tho so no fun w them at the resort like usual:( So i wamted to ask what u all here would do?
If you have family staying there you can see them and use the pool and use it for meet up, take the extra days! My sister stays at different resorts from me sometimes and she pops over to mine and rests and checks it out and I do the same at hers. It's the time that you spend with your family not the resort you spend it in. Take an extra day! - cheekymouse  34.9 #107 9:06AM
I would go for the extra days! The Pop is a fun resort - and if you're spending most of the time in the parks anyway, it won't matter so much. The Pop has a fun pool; it's not the Poly, but it's still nice. Food court and bus service is good too. Either way - you're one lucky girl! - goofygal  5690.2 #10 8:58AM
Deff stay at pop! I know how you feel trust me! This way on the extra days you can go visit poly :) - Boardwalkgirl  54.6 #84 11:30AM
I would stay longer : ) - lakerck  164.5 #43 5:09PM
Save the money! Go eat breakfast at the Poly one day! - justGoofin  128.3 #53 8:53AM
I'd save the money!!  Like justGoofin said, go visit the Poly - eat a meal there, we LOVE dinner at Kona Cafe.  After all you are just going to lay your head there if you won't be swimming, which in November is definitely iffy!  I'd do almost anything to stay a few days longer!! - DizneyGirl  526.6 #9 9:05AM
I would go for the extra days, too!! You can always go to the Poly to eat just to experience it a little this trip!! PS. We are planning a MW meet up during the time we'll be there!! If you are interested, send me your email and we'll get our schedules synced up to take a quick pic!! My email is: mmurph001@yahoo.com - mrsincredible  730.5 #5 11:19AM
What about splitting the time? Spend 3 days at poly and the rest at pop? - Disneymba  39.3 #4559 12:16PM
Take the extra day !!!!! - skcanfield  463.7 #12 12:56PM
Who doesn't love the Polynesian? But at 450 plus a night??? We only stay at value or moderate!!! You can't go wrong- although if I do win the lottery it will. Be a different story! - timon  12.0 #202 1:00PM
Save the money! Poly is more comfortable but you'll still have fun at Pop and you can always resort hop on the monorail to visit the Polynesian to get your poly fix or snap some pictures! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #16 1:38PM
We chose an extra 3 nights and stayed at the Caribbean beach versus staying at a pricier hotel. Totally worth it. - Disneyaddict  265.9 #1033 1:50PM
Extra days!!!!! Yes! We almost always stay at valu because all we do is shower and sleep there. Take a dip when we need too. Plus you will have animation hotel you can walk to also if you stay at pops. Hotel and grounds are nice - mmddgp  355.0 #18 1:57PM
Same here I wish I could stay in one of those resorts! But I rather save that money, and use it for an extra day or two, and shopping....I'm happy at the dolphin... - islandgirl58  243.6 #26 3:33PM
If it were me, I'd stay longer at the pop! It's a cute resort and I would stay at WDW as many days as possible!! - DisneyLisa78  40.5 #99 4:35PM
Hey all!! THANK YOU for the replies I read them (just didn't have a chance to reply til now, my phone was messing up so I'm on a laptop now) But ur answers helped so much that every1 said the pop. So here's what happened...instead of staying 1 or 2 extra days, my mom said we'd go to WDW next summer, but if we stayed at Poly, we wouldn't go for 2 years. Well that was enuff to convince me! Honestly I thought i'd b sad or something too but I'm still thrilled lol. And here's what my mom said (she loves poly as much as me. she said when she first went to wdw ww/o me, she saw the monorail ride up to the polynesian and she said "thats the resort i want next time") Anyway so my mom said we'll ride from pop and park in the polynesian parking lot to eat there or w/e and ride the monorail to MK or epcot. so it sounds super to me, and I;'m just so excited anyway:)  - Polynesiangirl  98.3 #58 5:09PM
Been there,done that,so I completely understand how u feel..lol. Pop century is a great resort actually. Stayed there and it's quite nice. There are no monorails and u have to take the bus,but hey...you're still in Disney! Enjoy:-) - mickeynme  149.6 #46 10:28PM
