Would love to hear what others think about the longhouse...
I'm excited also about my counter!!, I wish I could help you as far as longhouse, I myself am new to staying at POLY, but have been there on quite a few occasions... But it never hurts to ask, all they can say is no....Your hubby and daughter will love WDW.

I honestly know I get more stressed closer to my trip, like today I was watching the weather and saw Tropical Storm/Hurricane Bonnie heading towards the whole route of my trip and thought "Oh know, not now, of course a really bad storm to mess up my trip,( I don't think of the destruction of homes and lives in Bonnie's path--- I selfishly think it better not mess up my trip plans, then I realized Bonnie was approaching this weekend and thought GOOD, just not next weekend. Isn"t that horrible because this weekend is somebody elses trip to WDW. Or another worry-- please no one get sick in the family or if someone outside my family gets sick its like stay away from me and my kids, because nothing better get in my path to WDW. I go Disney mad, because so much planning was involved in this one trip.... So needless to say I worry, LOL! and because I never purchase travel insurance..

Sorry about your big toe!

Unfortunately, I broke my big toe 2 days ago. That's going to make park touring kind of hard. My DS says I should get a wheelchair so we can go to the front of the lines. LOL! Of course, I won't do that!!! We'll just have to take it a little slower....
I bet your one of those people whose never broken anything before and right before your WDW trip, it happens.. Isn't that crazyyy..
That's funny about the wheel chair though, I actually giggle about the people who you know are in the wheel chair just to get to the front of the line or because their tired, what's really horrible is when you've waited with screaming, hot, tired children with spilt(I'm sure not a real word) ice cream all over them in a line and someone who probably shouldn't be in a wheelchair anyway gets in the front with 15 of their family members.. It drives me nuts...If they really aren't disabled in any REAL way. But then I guess its not for me to judge, in the grand scheme of things, It really doesn't matter.
Actually your day sounded great to me, tomorrow I think I'm going to swim in the pool & float under my willow trees in the backyard pretending they are palm trees of course and daydream I'm at the POLY ...

I know exactly, I am usually a fan of hand sanitizers, but I think I get worse right before Disney vacations

My second trip to Disney in 2003, We drove straight to WDW 13 hrs nonstop except gas and only a few rest stops. Checked in exhausted and I woke up my first morning at Disney sick with fever and vomitting, I said to my DH SAVE yourself and the kids, get out of here, take them around the resort , anywhere but here,(I was terrified I had this and it was going to them and the trip was ruined-- I was dead to the world for the first 2 days, and I never get sick, the planning and driving and excitement all rolled into one and it was miserable, but I was a trooper and got through it, I tried to learn a lesson out of it, FLY next time.....LOL HAHAHHEHHEHEHH. Take care of yourself and calm down, its just a vacation.. but one heck of one!!!!!!!!!

I'm gonna shop a lot more don't worry, so I'll keep my a lookout for more resort specific items (I always buy something with my resort logo on it for a keepsake).

Oh my gosh y'all I didn't know we moved on to a new thread! Wow I'm so behind but I'll catch up with that once I'm home, doing this on the phone is not the easiest on my eyes.
That was me lol. Thank you for the update and I'll be waiting for more news. Enjoy the beautiful Poly.

We were stayed in Tokelau, second floor in April 2010. Thought it was a great longhouse. We noticed the extra room (vs. Niue in 2008), centrally located - quick walk to GCH, adjacent to the quiet pool (which all in our party including 5 ages 10 and under preferred) and maybe 10 min walk to TTC. We wanted rooms facing the pool but none were available - initially we were a bit disappointed but this turned out to have some benefits - quieter and cooler in the afternoon - facing away from the afternoon sun (and it was HOT when we were there). Here are a couple of pics from our balcony - early morning (Rm 2925)...







Hope this helps,

Alison

Thanks ZuZu and Tess! I think I'll bring a few wipes for myself because I tend to be "sweet" too.

One week from today we'll be at the airport!!!
