Or swinging the chains in the ride lanes? Or not holding my hand in a crowd? Or being a picky eater? Or having a temper tantrum? Cant even sit next to my own husband, the little one keeps getting in the way All these things that used to irk me as a non parental unit now I completely understand!

You guys are my heros...now I need another drink....where's the Tylenol??
From a mom of 2...Thank you! I tell my husband that we'll get to know each other again someday!

EDITED...Oh no, I just read about your niece getting sick. Hoping this passes quickly. Your nieces are very lucky to have your for an aunt!

Hope Kayla is feeling better! I read your account of post midnight Mousekeeping to my DH and he was horrified AND impressed! Now we all know what to do in that worst case scenario...it's totally awesome that they took it upon themselves to clean the whole carpet and replace the mattress.

I hope Kayla is feeling better, and I hope you all had a great day.

I have to agree with everyone else, that you are a great aunt. You are the kind of sister every sister wishes she could have!!

I am also so glad for you that mousekeeping was great.

By the way...I hope you did get some pictures of them with the characters. Those pics are the priceless ones!!

Sorry you had to deal with a sick kid, that's the worst! Hope Kayla is feeling much better today!

I have to thank you for posting pics of the pancakes from the Princess breakfast. We've avoided it since my DS4 doesn't eat eggs (only waffles, pancakes and french toast). I had read an old post of someone asking for pancakes but no one recently would confirm that they were still available. Leave it to you Nic to confirm it for me!! Thank you so much!!!!

Hope you had a warm day by the pool!

Hi everyone! Thank you so much for your advice and wishes for Kayla!

Well our morning started off very late, we all needed the sleep and rest so that is exactly what we did. Around 11 am Kayla decided she was up to the pool so we all put on our suits and off we went. I called housekeeping to let them know that we would be out of our room for a while....I saw them bringing in a new mattress around noon and they had the carpets completely cleaned and all new linens for both beds...again I cannot praise the staff at the Poly....even the housekeeper left a note to Kayla saying she hoped she felt much better today!

So we went to the pool and it was a beautiful day...started off cold but warmed up fast. She went in the water for about 30 minutes and then she and her Uncle Todd went to build sandcastles in the sand while the older one and I went on the slide and chilled in the pool with girl talk. Kayla fell asleep on the lounge chair for an hour and then in the hammock with DH for a bit. She had her dry cereal and was happy with that, the older one and I went to the food court to get Todd and I some lunch..Adrianna had the same cupcake as the other day and said it was great, I ordered the Lo Mein and BBQ pork sandwich for Todd and I to split.

The lo mein was incredible, noodles were perfectly cooked, the chicken was melt in your mouth and the sauce was awesome....totally worth stopping in here for lunch even if you are not staying at the Poly.

The BBQ Pork sandwich was humongous and very good! The homemade Poly chips are sooo good we fought over them, some were wonton like, others were sweet potato and regular potato! The pork was very tender, melted in your mouth...nice tangy sauce with fresh pineapple, cucumber and tomato....awesome!

DH and I scarfed down lunch and we hung out at the beach for a while, it was a great day for all of us, we needed to recharge and enjoy the warm weather. After a bit Todd needed a water so he came back with a Mickey Bar and a banana...here is what he came up with...take a bite of the mickey bar and then a bite of the banana and eat at the same time...it is SO AWESOME!!! The best concoction ever!

Around 3 we went in to take our showers and get ready for MK. Kayla wants spaghetti but Todd called the Poly and they do not have that on hand. I got on line and saw that the new CS place in CR has a pasta marinara...so we took the monorail over there and both kids had the little pasta hats (had to call them that or the kids would not eat them) plain with the sauce on the side. They loved it and ate the entire thing! PERFECT!! For 6 bucks this was a great deal!

Here are some pics of the desserts at the new CS place.

We made it over to MK around 5:30 and did all of Adventureland...the egg roll stand was open so Todd had to have an eggroll (blech from me and YUMMO from him) and the older one had to get the corndog, she loves them!

We did all of Frontierland and headed to the HM...DH and I had to eat so we went to CHH. I tried the Tuna sandwich back in Aug and it had pickle relish in it...I am SO HAPPY to report that it NO LONGER DOES! The sandwich was the best thing I have had this trip! The bread is lightly toasted and nice and grainy, the tuna was perfect...I cannot wait to go back and get it again!

Todd tried the Veggie chili and said it was great, and it was..tons of veggies and tons of flavor!

He also had the BLT chicken salad, omigod it was sooooo tasty! Nice mixed greens with crispy bacon, not bits but REAL BACON! Awesome chicken nuggets too and when mixed with ranch dressing it was just wowza, so awesome!

Now we are torn, which to do, Cosmic Rays or CHH?? Hmmm maybe both and skip a TS in MK!

On the way out DH had to get some fudge and they were making candy apples on Main Street...smelled like heaven

Headed back to the Poly and I was getting our PhotoPass pictures (just and FYI if you lose you Photopass they can find it for you..just tell them the exact day, time and place that you used it and they will search all the pics taken until they find yours....all they need is one picture and boom...they have your lost pass and they can combine it with the other pass...how I know this is I lost the pass yesterday and was so upset!)

Met up with Todd and the kids and he was a doll baby and ordered me the drink that I love and a Bahama Mama for him. Thing is, we cannot just have one, we have to have 2 and so we did...and they were the perfect end to a very nice day.

We leave tomorrow, we are all sad about it because we are having such a good time! Plans have changed and instead of TH at AK I booked a Kona breakfast (may cancel for the TS instead) and then we are going to check out of the room early and drive to AK and stay until 3pm....lunch at the AK park but I dont know what yet!

DH and I are planning on coming back in March at the POFQ but I just changed it back to the Poly because the food, the service and the room has been fantastic...the best CM service we have every experienced and it has been the time of our lives staying here...now we need to do it sans the kiddos! The little one is already asking when we are going back to our Hawaii house! I cannot tell you how many leis they have going home with them!

Have a good night everyone, I have to go pack up their loot!

Been so busy, I just found your reviews!
I am so sorry the little one got sick, glad she is feeling better and hope you had a good day. It sounds like you were doing really well with all your restaurant choices (except Park Fare) up until that point and I know it was a big worry for you.

Just got caught up. So glad that Kayla is feeling better. Having a sick child is no fun! Especially when you're not used to handling it. But it sounds like you handled the situation like a pro! Hope you enjoyed the rest of the trip!!!!

Glad to hear Kayla is feeling better and that you had such a nice day yesterday!! You are making me want to stay at the Poly for our next trip!! My husband says no though because they don't have a hot tub. (They didn't happen to put one in while you were there, did they!?!?!? )

Great reviews! I went to Crystal Palace on my last trip and LOVED it. The puffed french toast was fabulous! Sorry 1900 Park Fare was a bummer. I was thinking of trying breakfast there on my next trip but I think I'm gonna skip that one now, yuck.

Fulton's looks really yummy... I had actually thought about booking there for my wedding reception luncheon (our wedding was in WDW) but chose Portobello Yacht Club instead. I loved Portobello, but it looks like Fulton's would have been awesome, too. I am going to have to try to book dinner there for our next trip.

I'm glad you guys (mostly) enjoyed Coral Reef. It's one of my favorites. The potatoes the came with the steak are different than what I had. Mine came with au gratin, but I think I would like the roasted ones better. I'm glad they changed that. Next time I go though, I might try what you ordered. (If it's still on the menu.) It looks fantastic. And I am definitely trying the Octopus Juice next time!

Your nieces are just adorable! I'm sorry the little one has been so sick. That must be so stressful. I don't have any kids (yet) either, and I know I would be panicking, trying to deal with a sick kid! Sounds like you guys are doing a great job, though.

Can't wait for your final reviews!

OH MY Goodness! I'm so glad mousekeeping was awesome, cuz it would've been a nightmare otherwise! You're so lucky! Maybe she just had an upset tummy... hope it's not the bug... I'm glad Kayla's feeling better! The pics. of the girls are so cute!

Ah, you're going back to Poly, instead of POFQ? Are you going to be staying CL? (just wondering... ~ you know where I'm going with that question... )

I'm looking forward to hearing more!
