I always get a mani/pedi right before our WDW vacays too! This yr DD almost 15 will be joining me and DH normally gets a pedi before our trips as well, his feet are in steel toed boots so they need it!

Having woken up to 4 inches of fresh snow this morning (where the heck did that come from?!) I'd have to agree with Grace&Carolinesmom! Although I did manage to have my own little bit of Poly paradise this afternoon. My plans got cancelled and I have an empty house (a rare occurence) so I soaked in a hot bath with one of my sister's homemade tropical bathmelts (the fragrance of pineapple wafting up through the air) and the Poly loop playing in the background. When I closed my eyes I was almost there ...

I think some Lapu-Straw-Scraping Support Group needs to be formed. Though, I'd imagine meetings would devolve into discussion of various straw-wielding techniques and the best methods for extracting the pineapply-rum goodness.

(Thanks for the 'Ohana info. Tempted to change from Kona to Ohana at dinner now.)

The LSSSG meetings would devolve no matter what the topic promptly after the second Lapu-Lapu. Remember that cloak of invisibility

Can you do both Kona and 'Ohana? I think everyone should try 'Ohana at least once, and if you can, time it with Wishes and try and get a window seat. But, I'm personally not a big fan of the food. I do love Kona for lunch, they have a great menu and those desserts...

LOL, my DH wears steel toe boots too, but he'd die before he'd have a pedi, I think! I'll just do DD's nails myself - she's 7, her pampering is getting her hair braided at the GF salon on Saturday!!

We were lucky enough to miss the snow this round, it's been a loooooong winter. It's just gray and rainy here. Looks like it will be cold most of the time we're gone, too. Can't wait to get away!!

I am feeling so deprived...I have NEVER had a Lapu Lapu. I *THINK* about it each trip but I am so in love with the Pina Colava that I can't seem to venture to the pineapple sensation. I slurp up my pina colava so fast I get the cold zing in my throat that reminds me--Hello lady??--drinking too fast--slow down, take your time--ack! I never listen and keep slurping despite the cold zing...until sadly I am left with the "eating of the cherry". At that point, I point to my cup and DH gets me another

Hello,
I would love to get everyone's opinion on which long house to request. We would like to be near the pool and have a full size balcony. Thanks so much!

Ya know, I believe LSSSG needs a witty slogan. I'll be such a light-weight by the time our next trip rolls around, the first Lapu Lapu will have complimentary Cloak of Invisibility included, I think.

Hmmm. On second thought re: Kona Cafe after looking at their menu again, we have booked in for dinner on the night before we leave (hopefully have booked by the IPO) -- I'll leave it be, methinks. The desserts and drinks part of the menu reminded me. *drool* Last year, we had done 'Ohana for breakfast; the food was a bit strange (sugar on the potatoes?!). We loved the character interaction though. And went to Kona Cafe for dinner, on a night when I was feeling a bit "off" so I'd love to do Kona again and enjoy it 100% this time! The hubster really enjoyed his meal that night though -- and the dessert. While I looked on in jealousy.

We spent two of the evenings camped outside the Tambu Lounge, enjoying drinks and snacks from the bar menu with the kiddo. That was fabulous. I'd highly recommend that to anyone. Very relaxing in those chairs, with a frosty drink in hand. (Note for legality sake: Kiddo didn't imbibe adult drinks; even as tempted as mommy was to let her have a sip.)

I just want to take a moment to thank you all.
I'm about 3 1/2 weeks away from my trip and I lurk on this thread daily, well perhaps hourly....
I get excited every time someone posts. Really it doesn't even matter what you say (although you are all full of information AND very entertaining) I'm just excited that there is someone saying something about the Polynesian.
So for those of you going before me - Have a magical time! And those of you after - I will try to give your ticker a push and make it go faster.

Tammy

I MUST be in the minority b/c I dont like the lapu lapu, way toooo strong for me.. I love the pina colava, I love that they use chambord in most of the pina colada/Colava un WDW..

Now my DH has to get it each time..

I remember when I ordered the lapu lapu I didnt really didnt know what was in it I took it for granted that it was like a pina colada and WOW it was a shock! LOL DH said I saw the description and didnt say a word..

I think maybe I need to adopt your game-plan! I go for the non-frozen drinks because they "go down easier" and I don't suffer from "brain freeze" or "frozen throat" -- but that's a bad strategy because I blow through said non-frozen libations. "Frozen throat" always slows me way down. You've got to get a Lapu Lapu to experience the straw scrape phenomenon.

You know, I was in your exact position last year ... wondering what longhouse to request. My suggestion is take a look-see at Tikiman's website (just Google Tikiman Polynesian); he's got excellent descriptions including the pros and cons of each longhouse. That way you can decide on your own based on what your requirements are. After perusing his site, we decided on Tokelau and really couldn't have asked for a better spot. Right next to the quiet pool and a short walk away to the TTC was exactly what we wanted -- we requested top floor for the full balcony. It was fab.
