Who will be at the Poly in August 2012?

This thread is for those of us who are really excited about staying at the Polynesian Resort in August, 2012. We can use this thread to share our dates and our plans, and maybe stage a little "Aloha meet" at the pool or the Tambu Lounge to enjoy some drinks and to share our love of the Poly!

I will keep a running total, in order of arrival, in post #2.

ALOHA!

We will be there August 4 through 11. I'm so excited this year for some reason. It might have to do with the fact that it is only 12 degrees here right now

Maybe I should tell IPO to make sure Tambu is well stocked for our arrival.

YES! You're our connection with IPO.

Looks like our list is growing and I'm loving it!

May I ask, what is Poly's LSSSG in your signature?

MCDomzal, I know how you feel. The more I stay at the Poly, the more I WANT to stay at the Poly!

StacyMarie, I think I am more excited than usual because last year we stayed at CSR. Don't get me wrong, CSR was absolutely GREAT...but it wasn't the Poly!

And we are expecting 5-8 inches in my neighborhood too! Not as much as we got in the October crazy storm, but we consider it a pretty big hit around here.

I HATE SNOW, lol! Old Man Winter held off this year though because we didn't have snow until about 2 weeks ago. We had a brown, crunchy Christmas. It was ugly and brown outside!

Iloveeeyore, we stayed at Pop last year with 2 rooms. It was an all girl trip of myself, my mother and my 2 daughters and they each brought a friend. While the trip was fun and I LOVED the food court at Pop, I hated riding the bus everywhere and so did my girls. I think they appreciate the Poly more this time around!

Hey, iloveeeyore, I just clicked on your link to read your 2010 trip report and realized that we were at the Poly together then, too! Small world!

It is a small world!! That week was the very hottest I have ever been in my life, but it was the BEST trip! Can't wait to make more magical memories, but wishing for just a few degrees cooler this year! What longhouse were you in? Any special requests this year? We booked GV again and are hoping for the same view in Samoa.

BTW, your screen name seems very familiar. Were you on the Poly FAQ thread at that time?

This is our first time going in the beginning of August. How are the crowds? We usually wait until the last week of August/first week of September to go but that was a no go this year. My daughter is a senior and she said we can't go that week because "she doesn't want to miss anything school related." She usually misses the first home football game.

I hope the crowds are manageable. We love Tokelau because of its central proximity to the bus stop, laundry, etc. and also because it is right by the quiet pool. The volcano pool is always SO crowded. I requested the same building this year so hopefully we will get it.

I was thinking there would be more people jumping on the August 2012 bandwagon here. Where is everybody?
