Full time stay at home crafter!

Great review. Thank you!
The strange decor is Hawaiian theme and you must be referring to people like thisWe stayed for one night last month. Lake view, third floor. The room was quite large, although kitchenette was smaller than other DVC studios. My own wish list...since the bathrooms are SO large, a stackable washer/dryer could have maybe been installed somewhere. The view of MK and the fireworks was wonderful...but I would never entertain buying points there because of the lack of a one bedroom and the washer/dryer and full kitchen. However, the easy access to the TTC is a bonus. I think the strange decor is what the Poly had to begin with? Not sure, as have not stayed there since the early '80s. Decor is not important to me.
Which Bungalows are closer to VGF - 1 - 13 Or 14 - 20?The noises from the boat horns going off every 15 minutes is SIGNIFICANT and if you are a light sleeper, then avoid these rooms. The Bungalows looked very cool and I would definitely want 1-13 instead of 14-20 and HATE 17-20. The landscaping was not totally done and when a large rain storm hit us, it washed away lots of the mulch onto the sidewalks and even forced the pool to be closed. The landscaping definitely needs some barriers or better drainage as this will be a constant headache in the future..
A studio. Thanks I will ask. Can't wait to have a drink at Trader Sam's.What room type did you book.
I would ask for a high floor as they have the best views. Make sure to check out Trader Sam's.
I would definitely call DVC direct to make sure of that request as I don't know if you can verify that online.A studio. Thanks I will ask. Can't wait to have a drink at Trader Sam's.
Silly question - I can't remember if I put a room request in or not. Is there a way on the DVC site to see if I did?
Tokelau has all standard views so I would go with that and save $$$. Moorea only has the lakeview side rooms - I think there are only 79 rooms and the rest between Moorea (other side is standard), Tokelau, and Pago Pago are all standard.Really helpful thread, thanks to all who have posted. A friend and I are doing a short girls' trip in February and booked a standard view studio. This will be my first stay at Poly in many years, and first in the DVC rooms there.
From what I've read here, it looks like I should request a third floor room in Tokelau for best view and to avoid noise. Can someone suggest a specific room? TIA.
Yes and if you are lucky enough to get the 3rd floor at the end of the Tokelau building, even with your standard view, you'll see this from your balcony:Tokelau has all standard views so I would go with that and save $$$.

Yes that is the castle. Here it is with the camera zoom:
We stayed here for the first time during July 4th weekend, lucky enough to snag a reservation here when we did not own DVC here. It was by far one of my FAVORITE room locations ever! There were 5 of us (2 adults and 3 kids ages 15, 12, 11) in a studio and honestly it was not bad at all. We also prefer one bedrooms (as one poster above mentioned) but with the two bathrooms this worked out pretty well for us. After all, we are not in the room THAT much on our trips!
