Multiple Lapu Lapu's while waiting for our 21 year old niece to arrive had us swimming at 1 a.m.!!!!

Jumping in on this great thread I was a little worried when DH said he wanted to stay here (we usually go with GF) but you all have helped me really get in the spirit - can't wait for the Lapu-Lapu drinking and Dole-Whip 24/7

We had our VR at Luau Beach last July and that's why DH wanted to stay here - so we can be a part of the magic again.....

Could really use a Poly fix with all this blustery weather today. Carl, got any pics for us?! Off to watch one of Rob's youtube clips ...
I'm not sure where Carl has been, but here are a few for you! We have had some blustery weather that calls for a little Polynesian warmth. . .

Awesome photos Tess!

That picture of the quiet pool stuck out to me. I have never seen more than 1 or 2 families in there at a time before. We have only been to the Poly in the winter so I'm sure that's is why, but wow!

Neither had I until there was a diaper spill in the volcano pool. We came back from EPCOT that afternoon and by the time we changed, the pool was filled to capacity. They had to move the pool games, etc. to the quiet pool and it wasn't so quiet. In fact, we were a bit perturbed that "our" tiki table had been taken in a few short minutes.

True that!
I'm feeling much better now. I had a hot bath with one of my sister's homemade pineapple bath melts (to.die.for. - like a dole whip in a tub!), parked the laptop beside the bath and played one of Rob's Poly atmosphere youtube clips on full screen. It was *almost* like being there! Pathetic, I know, but I don't care!
