How exciting!!!! You're going to love it!

Hopefully we can all be some help to you - can't wait to hear more about you and your family and what you'd like to experience @ the Poly.

Completely jealous of that counter!

Any Tokelau enthusiasts here? I made a request with our reservation for top floor @ Tokelau if they had it available. It's only a garden view room and not sure if they'll grant it -- figured it was worth a shot in asking! It's our first time at Poly, first time at Disney for hubby and daughter. Would love to hear what others think about the longhouse...

Sadly, no it isn't. Apparently the resort went through a "Music Loop Overhaul" or something like that a little while ago.

I hear that the new music isn't bad. It's just not this, and this is what I've memorized and come to love. Hopefully the new stuff grows on me like this did.

I guess I am in the minority here...it's not that we didn't like the old music, we are just so glad that they have more than the eight or so original songs. For two years in a row we have had a ground floor room in the Hawaii building where you can hear the music constantly since it is piped into the grassy area/beach. DH is so tuned in to music (no pun intended) that he was nearly driven insane by the constant repetition of songs. Maybe they should have just added more songs instead of getting rid of the old ones.

Yes, please. . .keep the old and add some new. . .sounds like a win-win to me. Really, the new is definitely in keeping with the atmosphere--it would simply be nice to have the old and familiar alongside it.

This would have been a great way to go.

I was just thinking the same thing, as I sit here listening (again and again) to the old loop. Yes, it's less than an hour of music, repeated over the entire day...it does get old after a while. I just really wish they hadn't completely gotten rid of the music which has become synonymous to the Polynesian experience for me. So a mixing of old+new would have been far preferable.

Another questions (I'm full of them today). How about fishing for kids? DS7 seems to think he saw fishing on our trip in Feb and for the life of me I can't think of where, but now he really wants to go fishing off the dock of the Poly. Is there anything available at the resort or do you have some other suggestion? TIA!

I've never seen anyone fishing @ the Poly, but you can take the fishing tour thing where they take you out in the lake to catch & release.

Maybe if enough of us wrote in our feedback they would add the other songs back in. Does anyone know how to get that information to the powers that be?
