My DBF hasn't stayed at the Polynesian since the 90's and hasn't seen the updated rooms. He says they're amazing! A massive improvement from what they use to be. Personally, I am in love with that bathroom. Gorgeous!

I am loving your TR thus far. Thanks for sharing your honeymoon with us. DH and I were trying to decide between a honeymoon in Disney or a honeymoon cruise and were persuaded by non Disney people to do the cruise (not disney). We had a great time but we have always wished we had done the Disneymoon instead. We have gone for the last 6 years in a row now and it is the only place (other than short beach trips) that we vacation as a family. Nothing like it.

Looking forward to reading more.

You photos make me want to stay at the Poly SO bad. We haven't been able to afford it yet, but I'm hoping on our next trip, maybe we'll do a split stay and at least do 1 night on there.

Great Update!!!

I think it is a male thing because my husband also takes naps a lot. lol

Even though you didn't get an upgrade, the room looks awesome and it's nice that it is convenient to all the things you utilize there

Can't wait to hear all about your first dinner on your honeymoon!!!

I just LOVE the Poly! You definitely made a great choice for your Disneymoon

Even if you didn't get the upgrade, it's almost better to have a convenient location than a great view. That was so nice of your dad to try and get you the upgrade though! How nice!

I can't wait to see how the Disneymoon turned out! I loved your TR on the Nov 2010 trip went. We always travel to WDW in Nov. for the holidays so I love reading other TR's during that time.

Okay, I'm here!

Your wedding pictures are just beautiful. You look stunning in them!

I'm so glad you were happy with your decision to stay at the Poly. It is by far my favorite resort of all. I love the fact that they gave you real flower leis.

It did all work out! I was so pleased with Rarotonga!

Thank you! Everything about the Poly is beautiful! The rooms are really nice - and big too!
