*SIGH* Just wanted to check in and say I wish I was there, am jealous of those there now, (logpey, I'm looking at you here, LOL), and am jealous of those going soon. I just keep repeating to myself like a new mantra....

The new one isn't bad, just not as good.

Just checking in to look at my ticker...68 days until our next stay at the Poly!

I'm listening to the music on Tikiman's site and wishing that I was on my balcony facing sevens seas lagoon & Cinderella's castle watching the boats

I'm also interested in knowing which cabana is the 'better' cabana. Out of the two regular ones (not the deluxe), which one has the better view of the pool? That is what I am more concerned about - keeping an eye on the kids!

I'm aware of the general location (we used to pop a squat at one of the umbrella tables that was in that location - precabana!) but am not clear on which one is where and if one opens up with a better view to the pool or the castle.

And I don't want to jinx anything but I MIGHT be going to the Poly this fall. I have to wait just another 2 weeks to figure some things out with work and determine what time is the best. BUT the good news is that DH backed out on our 10 year anniversary trip. Good news, yes! Because he OWES me Actually, the harvest in Montana is going to be really good this year but later than usual so he'll have to be up there to work during our anniversary. This is totally acceptable - it's the family farm - but he's going to owe me for it I was thinking of a weekend by myself for food & wine festival but if we can't go on our anniversary trip, I'm going to drag him and the kids to Disney. Well, if we stay at the Poly, I don't have to drag DH at all - he loves it there! And it's never difficult to get the kids to go to Disney and they ADORE the Poly!!

Sorry for rambling, I'm excited but trying to keep it to a normal level until I am actually able to book it (and that horrible 'IF' I am able to book it!)

I honestly think the regular cabanas each give an equal view of the pool, they are in the same spot, they are just both angled differently. The one is angled better to see the slide, and the other is angled better to see the grotto area. Neither has a view of the castle, you have to pay for the premium for that.

The music in the 2nd utube video-is that the old music or the new music? That first song is my absolute favorite! Can't wait until Sept!

I agree! I like both loops! (maybe the old slightly better!)

Guitarob - are you and TheNewMrsB going back again in September??? I'm trying to swing an October trip - we will see!

Ok, question...don't laugh but I've never been to the Spirit of Aloha show I've been to a luau in Hawaii and I've been scared to go to the show because of the 'cheesy' comments but I really want to go, even if it is a little corny! Does it matter if you sit in category 1, 2, or 3?

Add me to the "will have nightmares" list. But beforehand, I'm seriously at you both. Whoever built that pool is clearly an avid Stephen King fan.

Let us do the "Please September, PLEASE?" dance together. It's vaguely reminiscent of the pee pee dance...

I actually love the SoA show. Only the first half is cheesy, and it is REALLY cheesy, but the second half is amazing. And the food was delicious, and it's the only place on property outside of club level where you can get free beer and wine.

We sat in Cat 1 seats, but we were at the end of the Cat 1 tables, so our view wasn't all that great, I think Cat 2 seats, closest to the railing would be best. If you pay for Cat 1, insist on being seated right in front.
