No I don't believe ECV are even allowed on the small boats ... another option is to go to the TTC (which is within walking distance - 5 min max) and take the big ferry boat.

I have booked a TP view and I was wondering which longhouse is better? Tuvalu, Tahiti and Aotearoa? I personnally like having a balcony but it isn't a deal breaker. Just which one would give you the best view of the Magic Kingdom and fireworks?

Would Hawaii be better? Yes, I know it has the lounge but if you don't want to sit in the lounge for the fireworks would their rooms (TP view) be the best for fireworks?

Hey everyone!!
Just wanted to share my happiness!! We have upgraded to a Theme Park view room for Dec. 16th-23rd. We have NEVER stayed at the Polynesian and I am looking so forward to it. We got reservations for Ohana's one night and I cannot wait for my (then 4) year old to go to the Neverland club.

I am hoping that it is as fabulous as I constantly dream it to be!!

We stayed LV in Tahiti last Sept. and loved it. We requested a first floor room so dd could walk right out to the beach and it was perfect, the parade and fireworks were easily visible from the room.

You are correct that the small resort launches cannot accommodate ECVs, so the monrail, large paddle wheel ferry boat from the TTC and buses are your options. I use an ECV & love the big ferry boat. Easy on and off. Remember, though, the monorail now no longer runs after late hours. In that case, you have only the large ferry boat or buses. Too bad about the monorail change--it has a huge negative impact on we handicapped guests. (Not that we are the only ones).

Does anyone know if the CL lounge has Kona coffee or the usual WDW nescafe nastiness? 10 days! So close!

Unless it has changed since last November, it's nescafe nastiness.
