    Is there any thing special about staying in deluxe resort? Have only stayed at value before staying at Polynesian in may. Just curious. Also. How soon can I do online check in. 50 days to go!!!! Cannot thank this panel enough!!

    Hi Danelle,

    Second question first - Online check-in is available beginning 10 days prior to your arrival date.

    Now to your first question... I think you'll find the deluxe experience to be quite a bit superior to the value experience. You room at the Poly will be nearly twice as big as a value room. The beds and the bathroom will be larger too. The Poly has several table service restaurants, whereas the values only have food courts. Additionally, you have many more dining options close at hand in the other monorail hotels. The Poly has views of the Magic Kingdom and you can watch the fireworks from the beach. The transportation situation is VASTLY superior at the Poly. You have quick monorail access to both the Magic Kingdom and Epcot (via the Transportation and Ticket Center). And the pool at the Poly is more interesting, with slides and other unique features. Overall, the deluxe experience is, well, deluxe.
