    Just read an answer about preferred rooms at Pop that are $10-15 more, but closer to the main blding. Does this also work for Polynesian? We stayed at Pop last time & had a BIG walk. What blding do you suggest? We have 3 kids ages 6,4, 4. & are gar

    Hi Amanda,

    Your question, unfortunately, was cut short, so I'm going to try and guess the remainder of the question.

    The deluxe resorts don't have preferred room offerings in the same sense as the value resorts.  The value resorts offer those rooms to ensure a shorter walk to the main building/bus stop and main pool.  The deluxe resorts offer rooms based on the views such as standard view (parking lots), garden view, water/pool view, and what I'd call the "magical" views depending on the location:  the Magic Kingdom or the savannas.

    At the Polynesian, our favorite building is Tokelau.  It is just so amazingly close to everything:  the main building/pool/monorail, the bus stop, the Ticket and Transportation Center to take the Epcot monorail, and the quiet pool is just outside its front doors.  What makes it even more special is that while it doesn't offer direct views of the Magic Kingdom, all we had to do was walk out onto our patio and turn to the side. There was the castle!  When our sons opted to watch Zach and Cody instead of the fireworks (why, I don't know???), my husband and I sipped some wine while watching the fireworks from our patio.  A little romance in the middle of our family vacation :-)
