The reservation center may not talk to them because they booked through AAA. From my experience they send you back to the travel agent. But maybe they will get lucky and get a CM that will do it!

Thanks Logpey for the update. The monorail cutbacks are humming me out but we will still have a great vacation!

Oh, I faxed them before my last trip, I guess it went in the trash, I received my request!

If you could get a rt from Louisiana to Seattle for $300, at less than $700 per person total, it's still cheaper than buying a single round trip from, say, New Orleans to Honolulu.
Thx for your time, I appreciate the thought behind it-just figuring the best deal on flights. I was pricing it earlier, still seems pricey, but I knew Hawaii would be --just trying not to throw away money where it could be saved! Thx again for your suggestions!!

How loud are the boat horns from the TTC center? We are going to request a Tahiti TPV, but my young son is a very light sleeper. Can you hear them with the sliders closed? What times do the boats run? Thanks.

The ferry horns from the TTC are barely audible with the doors closed, but can still be heard faintly.

The launch from the Poly to the Magic Kingdom is a little bit louder when it arrives and departs the dock at the Poly, but with shorter toots.

I've always just filed them both away as background noise, I'm a pretty light sleeper too and they've never interrupted my naps

I'll second what guitarob said, except I don't file the boat horns away as background noise. They're one of my favorite sounds of our WDW vacations. Just hearing them, on someone else's video or a live feed instantly invokes the Poly.

Ditto. Would love to be hearing that sound, especially after the last couple of days I've had.

It's a little more than we would spend for a week at the Poly, even if I added in the Deluxe dining plan, but I've never been to Hawaii so I can justify the expense.
hi there from the evergreen state,I was thinking of doing Hawai,but I just can not get past the extrem cost there. I am a golfer,and It cost a arm and a legg to play there. Yes the airfare can be a bit cheaper but for my money Flordia and WDW offers simillar weather and a little better cost and values.

OH, no, no, no... don't get me wrong... that "background noise" that I refer to is the soundtrack to my happiness I'm just saying that the horns are not something that stand out obnoxiously over everything else at the resort. Those horns definitely put me in a certain place in my mind every time I hear them.

I couldn't have said it better. I have watched your youtube videos on several occasions when I need a little fix from my happy place.

We were there last September around the 16th. No rain at all. It was hot, but not unbearable. Nothing compared to August. Enjoy your trip!
