Anyway, please post your Poly pics to keep me dreaming for the next 8 months! J.C.&ALI'SMOM and Seaspray, I hope you two won't mind posting more of your pics. I just love them.

No rules for this thread. No limit per day. Just post away!

Much thanks!
I don't have pics handy.......but the memories are amazing!

Hi all! I'm 6 months late, but better late than never!
Me and my DH went down last Columbus Day weekend for my 40th birthday celebration. We stayed here at the Poly and I don't recall offhand what our room number was, but we stayed in the Tahiti building.
My DH arrived the day before I did to "set things up" LOL but he did wind up doing a great job!
When I walked in the curtains were closed. When I opened them, I really cried - I Could Not believe the awesome view! We paid for a Garden View room but received an awesome Theme Park View room upgrade. I think I know how I got it, and I've yet to thank that person for thinking of me. But we're returning to our home away from home this September and "You" will be on my list of people to see - thank you!!

Anyway, here are some awesome photos for all to enjoy!


What a view! The BEST!!! We slept with the curtains opened every night!





One lovely touch I thought was so thoughtful was the lighting in the bathroom. When you turn on the light, it is dim, but after a few minutes, it slowly brightens and after about five minutes the bathroom is fully lit. This was wonderful when having to use the toilet in the middle of the night - the light didn't wake me up!



Ahh, breakfast at Kona Cafe... We didn't have the kids this trip, so we declined the character breakfast at Ohana. Never fear, Tonga Toast is here!

DH enjoyed the Press Pot with Kona coffee. In fact, Santa bought a press pot for him for Christmas and we found someplace local that sells Kona coffee!

Can you taste it? YUUUUUMMMM!!!!!!


While strolling back to our room in the Tahiti building, we relaxed for a few moments in the hammocks overlooking the MK and GF


Later in the afternoon, we took a fantastic voyage on a Water Mouse...
TIP O' THE DAY:
If you want the boat to actually move in the water, One Adult per boat!
Me and my husband together were too heavy for the boat. All the other boats were zipping around the lake. We were going so slow it was like we were dragging an anchor! There is a little sign IN the boat that discloses the weight limit - why didn't someone tell us the weight limit BEFORE we rented the boat - we would have gotten two!

I've got more, but it's late. Enjoy!

Ahhh...this is a great thread! Changed our split stay (Poly CL & WL) to 10 days of Poly in September for our anniversary! I'm very excited!! LOVE looking at these photos! DH is going to be sooooo surprised! He thinks we're staying at POFQ (which we do love), but I thought for our special anniversary (9th on 09/09/09) we deserved something even more magical! It's his dream resort & when we got the 40% code, I jumped on the chance to stay there! Yay!!

Again, keep the photos coming everyone!!
