Thanks. I hate to wish the time away, but this IS WDW and the Poly we're talking about here!
And I would gladly welcome a little snow rather than have it THAT darned cold. Stay warm, dreaming about Disney World!

Giving Tikiman a run for his money!

Rob! What a beautiful looking amazingly organized thread! I don't think I have ever seen anything better!!!

A favorite blogger of mine just wrote a two part history and review of the Poly PLUS put together an amazing video! I know that all of us Poly lovers will just drool on our keyboards while watching... plus I think he used the old school music loop as his background music .... (plus he has some great pictures of the new pool cabanas!)

Loved this quote from your friend's history:

"The Poly has two swimming pools, the Quiet Pool and the Nanea Volcano Pool. The Quiet Pool is reasonably large and is meant to be used by adults and more mature youngsters."

Couldn't agree with him more! Although I'm sure others might argue the point since the pool isn't "technically" named "quiet pool".

I don't think Disney agrees. That zero entry being added to the East pool (and speculated elimination of the deep end) will mean parents wanting to get away from the craziness of the volcano pool will now hang out at the East pool. We'll miss the east pool as it was.

Does anybody have any word on the construction at the east pool? Has it begun yet? Did I miss that? Last I saw on tikiman it was supposed to begin yesterday. I'm hoping it'll get put off again until the end of the month (basically until after my trip LOL) though I'm not holding my breath.

Just got home from the hospital and could REALLY use some Poly magic in my life right now. I'll be stalking the picture thread to make myself feel better.

Awww thanks! I had a stomach virus that has to be the worst one I've ever experienced ever. My doctor sent me in to be hydrated and monitored for a few hours. The nurse said this virus going around is pretty brutal and it seems to have a touch of the flu in it which is what is making it so intense. All is well with me and baby now though.

Hang in there! Stock up on chicken broth, apple juice, and crackers. Hopefully the saline will hydrate you enough to calm the nausea. My DD had a nasty virus a few years ago that she couldn't keep anything down. A bag of saline in the office didn't work and we had to take her to the ER the next day for 2 bags of saline and anti-nausea meds in the drip. Worked great! Last year both DDs had the bug and a bag of saline each in the office did the trick. Gosh I hope they don't get it this year

Pass the time on the DIS or put Tikiman in your browser to listen to Poly music while you play solitaire

Aww that is terrible. I hope they don't get it. It seems to be really awful this year. Of course I got it the worst of everyone in the house! The fluids really seemed to help. I've been drinking Gatorade and water since I got home to try to keep up the hydration. The nausea seems to have subsided a lot, but not I just have a general lack of appetite. Tonight it's just me, a bottle of Gatorade, and some Tikiman.

At this time in 16 days, I expect to be getting off a Magical Express bus and heading into the Polynesian for the very first time - and for a very special occasion! It's our 5th anniversary!!!

I have enjoyed reading more about the Poly and seeing all the wonderful photos. I didn't think it possible, but I'm even more excited now! This is our first stay at a Deluxe - since there are 5 of us, we don't have many options without spending a small fortune. But since it's just my hubby and I, and it's a special anniversary, we decided to splurge. My only fear is I'll never be content with POR again!

We've reserved a garden view room (all my budget will afford, since we are headed back for Spring Break in March!). I'd truly appreciate any suggestions for which building / room to request.

What are the chances that I could actually get a free upgrade with the help of a little Pixie Dust??? I've never tried before, and I'd completely be happy with the room we have booked, by OMG that would be awesome! The cast member that I booked the ressie with kept trying to talk me into the Honeymoon Suite, but I just couldn't afford it. I'm just curious if anyone has ever tried or had any luck?

Thanks!!! 16 days and a wakeup until I get to see my castle again!
