A closer view of the monorail (can you tell I loved looking at the monorail!):



The balcony from inside the room:

We started out in Rapa Nui, with a parking lot view but switched on night 2 to a great room in Tokelau with a view of the quiet pool. The room at Rapa Nui was actually a touch nicer as it had two sinks in the bathroom but both rooms were beautiful. I will tell you all more later - Be patient with me, I came here before unpacking even because I missed you all so much!!
Welcome Back I can't wait to see and hear about you trip

More room photos

The daybed made up as a bed (we just left it this way):



Beds:



The hallway on the way to the TTC - I didn't think the hallways were dark or dirty at all, but the elevator was a little bit small

Before I put it up, my DD8 and DN9 started yelling about how they didn't want one to see the other 'nekkid'. They thought I was pretty smart about the whole curtain thing. LOL!


Can't wait to see your pics!

More photos . . .

The quiet pool from one of the little "huts" there. My son loved this pool!



My bathing beauties:



The Volcano pool Sunday afternoon. I don't know why it was so empty - maybe because it was quite windy that day (the edge of Gustav was making it blowey). Anyway, we enjoyed having the pool to ourselves:



The beach from the pool bar area:



Just for good measure (not a Poly picture) - gorgeous clouds over Epcot:

What a great idea!! I wish I'd thought of it - it would have helped a lot.

Thanks everyone! I know that as I was planning my trip I LOVED looking at Poly photos, so I am glad that I now have some to share with all of you.

Honestly I wish I had taken more photos, but I really had my hands full with the kids!
