If you look at the new thread and see the picture of the water mice rental, it is age 12 and 5' tall to rent. Our kids drove these water mice years ago when they were young--granted we rode along (and maybe there is a change now and the signage hasn't been changed), but they drove us and we switched when they got tired of making waves.



As with all things Disney--you get a different answer from every CM.
I cannot believe we have not allowed our kids to drive the mice! And it goes soo slow with larger than normal me and a teen! I can send them out and say bye bye.. I know I asked last year and they said no. Fiddle faddle..
I get so indignant when I think I am right. sorry guys.

Hey, no problem! That's why I love the disboards, it's great discussion and really, there really is a lot of conflicting information out there, and sometimes we all get different information from different CMs.
Hope your kids can go back and enjoy the watermice sometime!

Is this where we can check in before we officially check in?

My family is heading down to the Poly in June, and I can't wait! My husband and daughters have never stayed here (we've only done All Star Movies, and while I loved it, my husband made me swear to never do that to him again.), so for his birthday, I upgraded and booked a week during Star Wars Weekends. For me, it's a return trip almost 20 years too late. (I stayed at this particular hotel when I tagged along with my dad on a business trip while I was in high school.)

I loved it then and sure I will love it more. Thanks for all of the pictures. Seeing them makes a cold winter's day in Utah much more bearable .
