Do you have any pics?

Was just wondering if any of you knew names of artists/cd's that might feature some of the polynesian music I heard. Mahalo!
One of the artists that they play are called "The Polynesians"! Go figure, right One of the best parts of staying there is the music! Also, if you go on Tikimans website, he has a polynesian loop that he plays.

Did anyone listen to Tikiman on Pirate Radio last night??? I was so jealous... during the broadcast(they were recording out by the pool) you could here the waterfall running and also the hawaiian music in the background! I could have cried of jealousy but it sure was fun to listen live

was this room down close to the entrance/elevator toward the GCH side? If it is I believe we were on the third floor in that same area years ago.

I love your Dis name.......great minds think alike!!!!
Yes, 35% off is a great deal!! You will love the Poly!! I was really hoping for 35% or 40% off BB offer when we were there last Sept but it was just the free dining BB offer, o well, better than nothing!
Best Dis name ever!!

We've never stayed at the Poly and it's always been on my to-do list. But I starting reading about the DVC changes coming and it really motivated me to stay there this trip and experience it the way it has always been and loved.

Question: The cast member told me all they had were standard rooms when I asked for a garden room. The standard room is a garden room, right?
We visited AKL when we met my cousin and her family there. It's a really nice resort but doesn't beat the Poly!!! Yes, the standard rooms are garden view.

Pretty much any room at that resort is great!! We like staying in Fiji. This last year we had a room on the 3rd floor, marina side, and it was SO nice and relaxing sitting outside! The 2nd floor does not have a deck.

We are leaving for our trip in 4 days. Should I request a room on the ground level or not? I think we have the lagoon view. This is our first trip ever. We have two kids ages 8 and 6 if that will make a difference in what room level we should request

It was almost dead center of the longhouse! So nice there and perfect location IMO.

My short answer: I don't know. I keep going back and forth on this. Our kids will be 7 and 3 (plus an infant). The ground level has the appeal of being able to just open the door and let the kids run & play while supervising from the patio. However, a balcony has the benefit of keeping them contained. I am really indecisive about whether patio or balcony would be better. I knew for sure I didn't want one of the rooms that is not ground-level AND doesn't have a balcony. So I requested a longhouse that has all balcony/patio rooms, and we'll just see what the fates deliver.

I was wondering if there are any posted reviews on the Never Land Club. We will have a 6 and 4yo and were wondering about the club.

It's a little pricey, but SO worth it!! We took our 2 boys who were about 4 and 8 at the time. We dropped them off, filled out the paperwork and they wouldn't even come back out to kiss us good bye. LOL When we got there about 3 hours later to pick them up, they didn't want to leave. It was great....we didn't have to worry about them and they even gave them dinner. It was very nice. From what little the boys told us about it (other than it being "awesome") was that they had a ton of games and crafts and the ladies were 'really really nice'. Oldest DS is now too old, but if he was young enough to go we would definitely do it again!!

Here's the view from our room. It was in the Fiji Longhouse, 3rd floor, marina view. Room #3311. We had stayed in a 1st floor room prior to that, same longhouse, on the marina side. I preferred the 3rd floor with the balcony.
