Mine does the same for me (I call him dh). He knows I literally cannot pick my head up off the pillow without a caffeine infusion, he's so good that way. And he's an early riser - so thankful for him......

Thank you, we had a flat tire in the first three hrs, changed to full spare, then went to tire shop close by and bought new tire because for one we needed extra tire and second I wasn't about to pull up at the POLY with a spare with no rim on my car...We also stopped off at USS Alabama, my son loved it, then had a nice dinner and are near Tallahassee. Started out a little rough, then fun, car games and annoying one another, now getting quiet. Weather was fine, sunny with intermittent rain . Check-in tomorrow!

That was such a nice resort. I begin to like it that's because you posted many photos where I can see how it was going to be. Thanks!

I thought someone mentioned in the last thread that room service will deliver the pressed pots of Kona coffee as well. I even think they got to order ahead, specify a time and it showed up as requested.

NICE! I'd like to know more about this and maybe how much a pot of Kona coffee would cost delivered.

Lapus lapus. Served at Tambu Lounge and Kona Cafe...I'm sure 'Ohana, too, but no personal experience there. Sorry can't remember the price. Cab they be ordered at the pool bar?

The Polynesian also has wonderful Mai Tais. So much better than the standard ones served at WDW.

Hey BCV--long time no see. Lapu Lapus can be ordered at the pool bar, BUT not in the pineapple. They are served in the standard issue plastic cup.

According to all information I have the press pot is about $8. So if you factor in the mark-up, it might be $15

The Polynesian doesnt make "special" cakes. You would have to order one from the GF or the CR. Private dining number at the bottom is you want something other than what is listed here. Here is cake info:

Polynesian Resort* — 407-827-2253

6-inch $21 chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream or vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream
8-inch $32, same options
10-inch $45 vanilla, chocolate or marble cake; filling is white or dark chocolate mousse, vanilla or chocolate buttercream, or custard with strawberries; frosting is vanilla or chocolate buttercream or whipped cream
Mickey Mouse Cake $48 (serves 12): Vanilla or chocolate Mickey head-shaped cake with chocolate mousse filling, covered in chocolate ganache; only customization is writing on plate
Fancy, fondant-covered cakes start at $75 and may be ordered by calling Private Dining at the Grand Floridian: 407-824-1951
