Carl, I'm going to need you to go ahead and move your trip up to, oh, say, RIGHT NOW so that I can live vicariously through your web cam, LOL!

Yesterday and today the weather is absolutely perfect for here in Seattle, and you would think that would quell some vacation fever. Nope, quite the opposite. I want to go more.

It's funny, the same thing happens to me ... the nice weather makes me miss the Poly more!

And I agree. Maybe you could just take up permanent residence at the Poly Carl.

Can anyone tell me when I can expect to get Mickey Mail? We booked our trip through a Disney travel agent, so I know she'll be receiving it and I will hear from her when she does. Just wondering when that will be?!?! :-)

I think it would be any day now. We live in Canada & I know for our trip last year we received our stuff a few days before our friends in Chicago (we wondered if they sent the "foreign" packages out a little earlier), but I'm pretty sure it was about a month before our travel date.

Thanks! I am so excited for that packet!

I have another question, which I will also pose to my travel agent, but figured the pros here will know the answer. Is DD (4 1/2) allowed to use a Puddle Jumper life jacket in the pool at the Poly? It's like arm swimmies attached to a part that goes around her chest - it's a Coast Guard approved life jacket. She's not fully independently swimming yet. Thanks!

I'm pretty sure that won't be a problem. Children aren't required to wear a life jacket in the Poly pools, so I don't see why they would object to her wearing what you've got and I'm sure I've seen kids wearing water wings in the pool there. They also have life jackets you can borrow from the marina for free for the length of your stay, if that saves you bringing something extra in your suitcase.

Oooooh, I hope so because that is what we are bringing for DD, who will be turning 5 on the trip. The only issue is that I am concerned about having it take up so much room in a suitcase and our entire day before flying home is at the pool. It probably wont dry in time for our flight home. I am entertaining the thought of just buying her some regular arm floaties to use and then regifting them to someone at the pool who looks like they could use them, before we head home. Haven't decided though...

And yes, I feel lucky to have gone to Disney as many times as I have and am always grateful for every trip. I'm just lucky that my DH has gone along with it all.
Only 5 more days!!!

Awesome! Thanks for the tip!!!

They do have life jackets available.. But remember the pool is only 4ft Or 1.22 meters. Guarded by lifeguards and zero entry. VERY safe even without life jackets!

The a/c issue.
Not a problem with the info. I can tell you the first time we stayed there I thought the darn thing was broken! Then I used the "baloon" method but they move all around in a strange environment.. Still couldn't sleep.. Then I went to the Internet for more info.. I CANNOT sleep without white noise in the background!

Carl Do you bring a white noise machine with you on vacation? We NEVER leave home without ours. It is the bomb. Drowns out those people walking the halls, slamming doors, doing "odd things" next door, and general neighbor noise.

Good question... I HAVE to sleep with a box fan for "white noise". I have stayed at the Poly 3 times in the past and never did think to ask if maybe they had a box fan for guests to use... Does anyone know?
