Hi Kaffinito, welcome back! Sounds like you had a great trip...I forget...did you end up in Tokelau? What was your favorite thing about the Poly? I'm glad you got walk ups at Kona and 'Ohana...I've been trying to get an 'Ohana breakfast for about a month now and it's booked up my whole vacation...I"m hoping someone decides to sleep in! What was your favorite meal at WDW? I look forward to hearing more about your trip...ours is now 6 short days away, and I'm still not even close to ready. No packing, no planning, zilch. I'm starting to catch DD's cold so it looks like we'll both be recuperating on vacation, but, what a place to be sick, right?

welcome back to kandcmch, mmmears, and anyone else returning home. I know about the disney "bug". We were just at the WL seven months ago. I didn't book the bounceback offer I received because I didn't think I'd be going back to WDW anytime soon, and then I'm on the plane ride home panicking because I DIDNT book the bounceback! I got online, and lived vicariously through everyone else going to my dream resort, the Poly and then I heard about the 4/3 deal and my quest began. No poly available for months and months, and finally, the last day of the promotion, a room finally opened up and voila, here I am half a year later. I'm not even there yet and I'm already planning my next vacation! I had originally booked the AKL and got all the info and was ready to stay there so that will have to be my next resort stay. I feel like I won't rest until I stay at all the resorts I like before "settling" on one!

Here's to hoping some of us meet at our favorite resort. We have so many overlapping days, it's bound to happen.

I will be the chubby white lady (sorry in advance for my EXTREME paleness that may blind those close by) with brown hair accompanied by 2 adorable daughters Grace(10), Caroline(8), and DH (6ft1" with curly light brown hair and a beer belly).

We leave on Thursday. Safe travels to those leaving soon.

I second this...I'd love to catch up with some of you on our trip. I'll try to get some LGMHs before we leave and attach it to something. We'll be mostly between the MK and Epcot, and spending the 28th at the Poly most of the day. Hope to meet up with some of you by the pool or walking around Have a great trip to those of you who get there before me, and if you can, pop online and let us know about the crowd situation!

The kids spend most of the day competing. At times there will be groups of them throughout the parks. She said to definitely don't book at a value resort and two of the moderates (cant remember which ones) as that is where the pop warner groups stay and it gets very loud!

I had wondered the samething since we are planning to go pop warner week in Dec. 2010.

back when I was married, my NSDXH (not so dear ex husband ) and I were looking into going to WDW during Pop Warner week. We got the same info...that they are mostly competing and different groups will be out and about in the parks, but not at the same time. It only affects the resort you choose from what I heard. They stay at all of the values, and also Port Orleans and Carribean Beach. I remember because we wanted to stay at either PO or CBR...if you stay at a deluxe you will be all set for sure!

Good luck tracking down as many photopass folks as possible. I hope I didn't miss you as I know that your trip was coming up soon, but these were some of my favorite photopass pics. This includes the water parks and the "magical shots."
Have a great trip.

UG is the Unofficial Guide (I think)

The Ku'ulei Punch was concocted by a CM at the Polynesian. While she is not, as a rule, in the lounge any longer (she works out front now), the lounge crew continue to make her punch. It really is delicious, but unless it has been copied by the other resorts--I believe it is offered only at the Polynesian.

Someone asked about the ingredients for the punch and as I recall it has various types of wine and fruit juice. She gave me the recipe at one time, but it has now escaped my memory--maybe one too many of the drinks!

for those of you who have just returned, can you tell me if you needed warmer clothing for nighttime? The 10 day forecast is saying mid 80s during the day, but I'm not sure what to expect at night and early am....
