The lounge is on the second and can be accessed from the 3 floors by elevator or the stairs. There is also a second sitting area on the 3rd floor with a TV which usually is for adults. The TV in the lounge will have the Disney channel on all day.


Enjoy, you're going to love CL!

We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!

Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

The one in the room is fine. I think it is a Conair and has a cool button set which is important to me when I use the blow dryer. What is great it is not attached to the wall.

Just Back!!

We just got back last night. We had a wonderful time even though Fay showed up uninvited.

We did the photoshoot. We ate at Kona Cafe, Ohana's for Breakfast, Captain Cooks and the Luau. I plan to do a review and post it but I took a bunch of pics and here are a couple with information on the Marina Prices. Not sure if these have been posted but here they are. This sign is located outside the hut at the marina.

So, yesterday, we had to pay the balance on our trip. My TA called again and informed me that the Poly was again available. TAKE IT! we told her. A few hours later, she called back and told us that we were in.


THANKS so much!

Oh, also, I really want to eat at Kona now. I do worry about my 6 year old's peanut allergy, as this is an Asian inspired restaurant. Does anyone have any experience eating here with a peanut allergy? (Yes, it's already noted in our reservation and ADRs.)
WOW what an up and down rollercoaster you've had in regards to yoru hotel! Glad you finally were able to get into the Poly! I've never been (YET) so I have no words of wisdom on the peanut allergy. I would think that disney is used to dealing with this and you shouldn't have a problem.

In regards to room location....are you garden view or what did you book? We booked gardenview and after looking at Tikiman's site in detail and asking several people here on DIS I ended up reguesting Tokelua bldg. Central location, all floors have balconies (or patio), rooms are a TINY bit larger than the others. Some people love Somoa...very close to the Volcano pool and nice views, too. You will get MANY different opionions about 'best location' I'm sure.

CONGRATS!

Some Captain Cook's Photos

We went to Captain Cooks for lunch and I took a few photos to show the lunch menu and some of the items in the refrigerated section.

A shot of the left case...notice the Silk Soy milk available

Thanks for the photos of Capn Cook's MsStinkerBelle - Now if someone could just outline an easy to use primer of how to order for us first timers so we don't look inept at ordering a sandwich - that would be phenomenal !

You're welcome! Since I'm an engineer I found it quite easy however, engineers are not reliable test subjects because of the strange way we think. The user interface really isn't laid out really well and that's my main point of contention with it. Someone making a 'primer' for first timers would be great!

If you have a Sheetz gas station in your area you can practice on the ordering screens. That's how you order all the sub sands at Sheetz.

My DS is in a wheelchair. We have the MK view booked for our Dec 13-20 trip. My TA is calling special needs services tomorrow to request a HA room in Tahiti for us (on Tikiman's site, it looks like the only MK view HA rooms are in Tahiti). She's also requesting either the 3rd floor for a balcony or ground floor patio. Has anyone stayed in one of these rooms?

I believe that the wheel-chair/accessible rooms are on the ground floor (but I'm not 100% positive that every single accessible room is on the ground floor. In Tahiti, I believe they are on the ground floor, though). Even so, with a ground floor room, you'll have a great patio that your family can see the MK from, and watch the fireworks from.

I have stayed in an accessible room in the Hawaii building, and it was great. Here's a link to my page with pictures and my observations of the accessible features, if you'd like to take a look: http://www.brownfamilyvacations.com/...ynAccessRm.htm
