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 #140 6:06AM
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  14384.8 #8 5:58AM
Deff stay at pop! I know how you feel trust me! This way on the extra days you can go visit poly :) - Boardwalkgirl  58.9 #102 8:30AM
I would stay longer : ) - lakerck  165.1 #59 2:09PM
Save the money! Go eat breakfast at the Poly one day! - justGoofin  166.3 #58 5:53AM
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  1595.7 #5 6:05AM
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: [email protected] - mrsincredible  1441.8 #7 8:19AM
What about splitting the time? Spend 3 days at poly and the rest at pop? - Disneymba  39.3 #5745 9:16AM
Take the extra day !!!!! - skcanfield  595.0 #14 9:56AM
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 #231 10:00AM
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! - Jalex239  379.9 #26 10:38AM
We chose an extra 3 nights and stayed at the Caribbean beach versus staying at a pricier hotel. Totally worth it. - Disneyaddict  374.7 #714 10:50AM
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  1990.5 #3 10:57AM
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  532.2 #18 12:33PM
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  44.5 #121 1:35PM
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  98.4 #74 2:09PM
That was a great decision! - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz  1191.5 #183 2:15PM
The extra days are totally worth it! And I love the polynesian and all of those deluxe resorts. If I can't stay at them, I just do what everyone says and go visit them as much as possible. Try to get ressies at kona or Ohana (tough but possible),go eat at captain cooks for some dole whip or breakfast on the way to MK..go shop at the gift shop,sit in the lobby and take pics,go rent a watermouse or do a family bike ride,etc.etc..don't wry..u have plenty of options! :) - mickeynme  236.0 #41 7:26PM
Good choice! You'll save money and Pop is a nice resort. Glad you worked that out! - Jalex239  379.9 #26 7:35PM
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  236.0 #41 7:28PM
I meant to click reply on your comment..sry..still getting used to MW..lol - mickeynme  236.0 #41 7:29PM

It will stay the same until someone else gets enough points and quality to pass a couple more people. Even though two people on the list don't post much they still are ahead of the rest of us in quality points so they earned their spot. And Plumiegirl you post QC so you're qc score is high! πŸ˜„ - secretagentangel  15445.4 #6 8:33PM
when you are at the top you tend to move slower because its the same folks that frequent the parks most. So hence the top ten.. trolls ;) - Plumiegirl  10921.9 #11 9:55PM
