I willbe adding my voice to the inconvenience of taking away more DSA's at Pop in October !!! The Non Smokers are very vocal and our only hope is to be just as vocal !! I will sorely miss the one by the main entrance and the one at the Bar Tables !!!!

I am traveling with my sister who smokes and I would like this vacation to be amazing for her!! It is her first trip to Disney in 22 years!! (might as well be her first). I have gone over the park maps with great care and made note of all the DSA's for her convenience. My question is where are the DSA's at All Star Music? I looked at some maps there and didnt see any. I was wondering if anyone knows where they are? I would really appreciate it

we haven't stayed at Music since July, 2 years ago.

at the time, there was a DSA between the calyopso pool and the food court ( a couple benches, think there were umbrellas over them.) there were a couple benches at the end of the Jazz sectin, near the piano pool. there was a DSA in the country Inn section. it wactually was a picninc table.

even tho it wasn't on the map, both this time and the time before, there was a DSA on a bench in the little "city garden" fenced in area in the broadway section. there was NO DSA in the Rock section, so tell themat check in you wo NOT want to be there.

Samoa at the Polynesian

Thinking of changing resorts again only if a room discount comes out. Is there any smoking areas around Samoa at the Polynesian ? We were there last year and I dont remember seeing any but the map shows one ?

Unless they have moved it, Samoa has a covered area on the second floor stairway area with tables and a smoke can. There is also an area by the quiet pool on the side of the men's restroom. A little farther, but not too far, is a spot on the second floor deck area between Rarotonga and Niue. On that deck is a table, chairs and smoke can. There are (or were) many others throughout the property, both covered and uncovered.

You are more than welcome. FYI, the area at Samoa is the concrete stairway end of the building (south) versus the wooden staircase (north) next to Hawaii.

What?!!! when did this happen? We really liked these 2 areas, they were so convenient. So, are we only allowed to smoke by the lake?

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO HOO. what a ride!

I don't know as this must be a rcent change, last October the 2 were still available , I wasn't surprised about the one by the entrance as I heard a lot of non smokers complain , but by the bar is really not fair to remove as it was away from the pooland easy to avoid ! I could deal with just that one being allowed, so I will voice my oppinion about it as should all smokers !!

The map is probably an old one and reflects the old DSA near the pool. That is now occupied by the rental cabanas.

The map is not showing a DSA in between Rarotonga and Niue ? Are not all of the DSA's not listed ?

As with all things Disney, things change--hence your map that showed the DSA on the upper level of the volcano pool. That one has been gone since they put in the cabanas. My best suggestion is to stroll the property, especially the places I have pointed out and look for seating and ashtrays. I can say with certainty that the Rarotonga/Niue deck space and the others I referenced were there last fall when we visited last.

This past March, this one was right outside Capt. Cook's:



And this one was by the exit from the Great Ceremonial House toward the pool. For the life of me I can't figure this one out! There's a constant stream of people coming out those "back doors"! Not complaining...just don't understand the "reasoning"!



DD and I didn't get a chance to explore the grounds any further. We'd checked out of AKV's and stopped for breakfast at the Kona. We lingered to long over our meal and needed to "hit the road" for home. I just HAD to have a brief "Poly fix"!
