2. Are the fridge's big enough to fit a 1/2 gallon of milk or do we have to get a smaller size? Also, is there enough room to freeze a couple bottles of water in the freezer section?

3. Is there usually a long wait to do laundry at the laundry facilities?

I'm sure I will have more questions as time goes on, but thanks in advance for your help!

1. Our girls LOVED the Neverland Club. The first time we took them we were very apprehensive. Youngest DD is in the autism spectrum and has lots of food allergies. The staff was wonderful! We had a wonderful "date night" and when we picked up the girls, they did not want to leave. They begged to go back so we cancelled out TS for the family for two nights later and rebooked the Neverland Club and another TS for a second date night. Kids were over the moon to go twice in one trip.

2. Yes--the fridge will fit half gallons. We usually have 2 half gallons of milk, a quart of Chocolate milk, water bottles, beer and yogurt in the fridge. We do usually remove one of the wire shelves so that we can pack it with our stuff. There is no freezer section.

3. No. Hubby does the laundry on our vacations to Disney as he uses it for his "me" time. He reads magazines and such. He has had a few occasions where he had to wait a little while for a dryer. I suppose it depends on the time of day. He usually went between 2pm-5pm while I played in the pool with the girls and had no real crowding issues.

Heading for my first Poly trip with my family of 5 in November. This is also our first trip in the off season, which I am really looking forward to. Our previous trips were during Spring Break and Christmas, so I can't wait to tour the world with less people!

So I am thinking about switching to a lagoon view room at the poly for our upcoming trip. From tikimans site, it seems tahiti will have the nicest lagoon view room...So I would like everyone's opinion on Tahiti Lagoon View First floor rooms. Did you like it? If you have pictures, that would be fabulous!! Or if you want to suggest another longhouse/room number that would be great also! Thanks!!

I like your questions!! We requested Tahiti Lagoon View for our 1st stay at the Poly this coming September. I too would love pictures or to hear any advice - hoping we made a good decision!

The only longhouse closed right now for renovations is Hawaii (CL), so you should be good! We requested Tokelau first floor, facing the quiet pool. I'm so excited to go back too!

We got a taste test of the stir fry at breakfast last week. My wife liked it a lot and thought it was healthier tasting. She voted yes when they asked her.

I just stayed in Tahiti first floor, rooms 1037 and 1038. I liked it a lot. Easy walk to the transportation center, great to watch fireworks from the patio and the hammock. You could see yhe castle and Space Mountain. The boat parade at closing was a surprise -- don't try to go to sleep before it goes because it's loud. So are the ferry horns first thing on the morning if you're wanting to sleep in.

We did have some housekeeping issues and some room service deficiencies, so that was frustrating. But I think it where we'll try to stay from now on because it was so easy to get to MK and the lagoon view was great.

I also saw tikiman's FB post. I'm bummed. When he kept avoiding stating dates and remained vague and the fact that Disney still hasn't contacted me or my TA to cancel my cabana, I was holding a glimmer of hope that the dates would get pushed. They still haven't cancelled my cabana (what's with that anyway?) but I think the last of my hope for the volcano pool during my trip is gone.

We'll still have a great trip, but it won't be as great. We do spend a lot of time at the pool, at least once though generally twice per day during out trips and then at least one full resort day where we spend most of the time by the pool. Yes, even in February. The quiet pool just won't be the same. As I said, we'll still have a great trip, but it won't be as great.

Maybe since we won't be spending all that money on a cabana, we should rent a boat for a little while on our break day.

I'm kind of bummed now that I switched from AKL.
