I am getting ready to make our reservations this coming week and want some advice from all you frequent mousers. We don't think we can afford the extra money to have a "view" at the polynesian. Originally we were going to spring for the honeymoon suite, but after doing some calculations decided we would save a couple thousand by staying in a regular room (and that couple thousand is DEFINATELY needed to be put towards the wedding) . . so can I request a view within the cost frame? It says that the garden view price level can view the marina, the pool, the garden, and/or the parking lot. I want some kind of a view, so I don't really want to be looking at the parking lot . . . and while the pool is amazing looking, not sure I want to be that close to the pool either . . so I was hoping for a garden view or a marina view . . can i get something like that in advance or is it more luck of the draw when we get there with a request? Which view would you say is best? Do any of the rooms have a balcony or patio . . or is that only the more expensive rooms?
Thanks from a Polynesian virgin!
