Sorry. . .

I know I promised a report of our stay, but it has literally been one thing after the other around here. . .I finally feel better, but I had wisdom teeth out last week and have been recovering from that ordeal. Yuck!

Anyway, here's a link to my 2008 Disney photos on Photobucket. There's some views of Polynesian in there too. I sure didn't take many photos this year primarily because I was too sick most of the time to pull the camera from the bag--yeah, that vacation could have been better, but there's always next time!

You should see him after this past weekend--nothing but sunshine and 88 degrees, hanging by the pool for three days from 11:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. He really does have a reddish brown color to him. Our kids appear so paper white because he is so brown! They told everyone who commented about their color and ours that they "worked" and we just hung around the pool--yeah, right! We don't sleep until noon and laze about until 2:00ish. They do work weekends, but that pool is there all week long too. . .

Aloha everyone! We just checked into the Polynesian this morning and received a free upgrade from GV Club Level to LV Club Level. We requested 3rd floor and "close to the lounge" and received both requests PLUS a free upgrade. We are in room 3502 and the view in gorgeous! Sorry, I'm just so excited I had to share it with you folks right away. We come to the Poly every year and have never received a free upgrade. I was just saying to my wife before we left how jealous I am when I hear reports on the DIS about people getting upgrades. We are celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary and this has really made it MAGICAL for us. They even gave us Happy Anniversary pins at check in and everyone has been wishing us a happy anniversary! We were standing on the train station platform watching the Disney Dreams Come True parade and the guy dressed as Walt Disney at the start of the parade looked up and must have seen our pins. He mouthed Happy Anniversary to me which I just thought was the coolest thing ever! I love Disney World!

Tess - I always enjoy your posts.
Glad you are feeling better. Sounds like you've been through the wringer
Loved your photos. Wanted to ask about the TL cabana?? I knew nothing of this. Where and How, please??
Is Marrakesh a favorite of your family for lunch? I haven't been in years and only for dinner. Might be nice for us this summer...
What about Teppan Edo? Do they have a nice sushi menu? If you love it, it must be good. I need to go look up the menu on allearsnet.
Thanks for sharing your photos!

huntconn
Congratulations and Happy anniversary!! What a nice treat for repeat Poly guests on their anniversary. I think that's some Disney Magic Good for you! I hope you'll continue to post live when you can
Enjoy!

Thanks for all of the congrats and best wishes guys. I really can't recommend "advertising" any special event you may be celebrating enough. So many cast members and even several off duty ones have wished us a happy anniversary. It's so much fun. One question: is it ok to post live reports on this thread or do most prefer you do it in the live report section? I prefer to do it here because of my focus on the Poly but I don't want to do anything inappropriate. Please advise. Better get going we have to watch Wishes from our balcony while sipping cognac and enjoying some desserts! Sorry...couldn't resist!
