I finally rented a car last year and while I LOVE Magical Express, it was really nice to have the car there (especially for groceries, Downtown Disney, and the waterparks). It is not a far walk to the parking lot at the Poly either.



MY GOODNESS CARL! I'm hitching a ride with you!!!
Let's go!!..

I stress too much about the luggage with MAgical Express. You won't know if a bag is missing until they bring your bags sans one.. AAAAAH! Then you will have to deal with the phone calls and the possibility of a delivery of your found bag at 2am.

I'm with you. Even when we use ME, we get our bags and bring them on the bus ourselves.

Asking you Carl and anyone else, Do you have a lot of luggage go missing when staying at the poly? I have never had an issue at POR. There was once we read about someone had a suitcase broken into and supposedly it had 2 iPads in it, a laptop computer, and mac-book air. Supposedly it was broken into between airport and hotel. But they never provided proof they even owned them to begin with.

Noo.. We did have our credit numbers lifted at WL. They didn't take the card but just took the numbers.. Didn't notice until we were auditing our trip. The only reason we noticed was the charges were for valet. We don't drive soo..

The airlines are cracking down on the employee theft of bags though. The was a sting operation set up in philly airport.. And they were busted stealing. The travel insurance would have. Covered the loss of their equipment if they would have purchased it.
It's not so much the loss of the items for us.. It's the hassle of having to buy new underwear.

They are clear glass tiki guy smile on one side frown on other. I haven't figured out how to post pics on my iPad yet.

The Mai tai is pretty good Bacardi premixed so not too strong for a Tuesday night.


Wow nice view what building was that.

Might want to hold on to those glasses. I haven't seen any for sale.

That was the Hawaii building. Heaven.
