Falling into the World

I'm here now, with a few days left on this trip. Some live reporting:

I love the Poly. Best studios in DVC. I considered buying some but I see availability seven months out.

There are some rude-ass people here and they mostly seem to be from South America. Sorry, just calling it like I see it.

It has been as hot as hell here. That usually doesn't bother me but it has been like an oven.

Mucho pictures to come.

I was debating booking the poly for next May today but decided on the boardwalk. Feel free to take a million pictures to talk me into it laugh

We will be there in January staying DVC. Glad you like it. I have heard a lot of nice comments about the DVC side.

I agree with the rude and the hot.... it was terrible temp-wise the couple weekends we were there....

Can't wait for pictures.

The band that replaced Mo'rockin may be the worst thing I have ever heard. I was tempted to put my fingers in my ears when walking by but restrained myself out of courtesy. The lumberjack's chainsaws were more musical.

The room was very nice for a studio, although they get enough points for a 1BR at most other DVC resorts

and the view was magnificent

I love the poly, but I think Im more of a visitor than a guest. Overtime we have ever been there we have encountered the rudest and most entitled guests I don't think I could deal with them.... but that view.... is amazing

But you do only get a view like that through a telephoto lens. That's not how close it looks with the naked eye.

If it were that close, everyone would want to stay there!

Do you believe the Yacht Club Lighthouse was unlit again for my whole stay. I honestly believe nobody at WDW even notices. To me it's a major feature of the Boardwalk area. It looks ridiculous unlit. I reported in to guest satisfaction and they called me back. Let's see how this plays out.

I don't remember if it was on when we were there for dinner. Actually, I don't think we even walked out there...

as for the lighthouse I can remember on one of our visits the lighthouse was lit because I remember pointing it out but I can also remember one night it wasn't lit too - it really does make a difference looks so beautiful lit!!!
