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!!

Do you know what happens when they get tired? I would assume the younger kids might fall asleep. Did that happen when you took the boys?

Can someone tell me what the dinner choices are for kids at the Neverland Club? Can they get extra food if they are still hungry? Are there snacks and drinks available?

I read the reviews at Allears but was looking for a little more detail

Thanks!

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 the same way. Wasn't sure which way to go. We were CL in the Hawaii building, the very last room at the end of the building with a garden view. I had requested a 3rd floor room and ended up with 1st floor instead. I absolutely loved it. I have a 6 and 5 year old and we rented a double stroller. It was so nice to be able to wheel the stroller right up to the patio and leave it there overnight. The kids loved being able to play in the grassy area outside our room. Ducks would walk right up to the patio (which can be a disadvantage because they leave a mess). There didn't seem to be a lot of foot traffic in our area so I didn't have any problems with privacy. It was definitely convenient to be on the ground floor. I really don't think that GV from the third floor would have been that spectacular and worth the hassle of the stairs. I guess it really depends on what longhouse you are in.

We were just there at the end of April and my kids loved the Neverland Cub. I have a 6 and 5 year old. The food choices were the basic kid friendly foods. Cheeseburger, chicken nuggets, grilled cheese, maybe hotdog, can't remember the rest. To me it was very similar to what they offer at Captain Cooks for kids meals. I'm wondering if their food may come from Catain Cooks. I'm not sure if they were given snacks. We had them there for 3 hours and they did not want to leave when we came to pick them up.

I'm not sure. Our boys didn't nap when we took them. Sorry. Maybe someone else will know.

We are also debating a request for 3rd or 1st floor in Hawaii and we have two kids that will be 6 and 3.5 when we go. We have garden view rooms, so we will be overlooking the quiet pool, I think? Can anyone tell me if the pool is enclosed with a child safety gate? I was thinking that if there isn't one, it might be better for us to be on the 3rd floor. My oldest is currently under the impression that she is a good enough swimmer to go on her own...

That might make the decision for us...

We loved Samoa. It's convenient to everything as it's just steps from the GCH, volcano pool, the beach, and Captain Cooks. With that said, the Poly is an awesome resort and IMO, there's not a bad room anywhere. Have a great time and enjoy the Poly .
