We've been the past three Septembers and I believe it has rained for a total of 3-4 hours in the 21 days that we've been there. We usually arrive right around the 19th. It's beautiful, hot to mild, humid, but not too bad. It's our favorite time of year!

Hawaii building question

Hello! Do all rooms of all three floors in the Hawaii building have patios/balconies? I've stay on the first floor and had a nice patio. Do the
2nd and 3rd floors both have full balconies?

Thanks!

No, 2nd floor has a false balcony, a rolling window/door, no balcony. 3rd has a full balcony

Me too! We are coming in the 22nd. I know the heat seems unbearable right now, but yesterday I felt that infinitessimal slight change in the weather that tells me fall is on it's way! September at WDW will be glorious!

We were there last yr Sept 10-19th and it rained once, down poured so bad it flooded Tommorrowland in about 12 mins then it stopped for the night (they were able to do parade and Wishes) and that was the only rain we saw the entire trip..

Hoping this trip will be that great!

SO EXCITED! Yay for the passholder discount for the fall!! We were going to do a one night before our week long package at the Poly but it was SO expensive that we decided to stay in one room at the BWI. HOWEVER.... thanks to the Passholder discount that was released we are now staying in the Poly for one night! We got to book TPV CL which is the same room we are in for our package so hopefully we get the same room for 8 nights!!! I can't imagine they would move us! Anyone had experience with this?

We love late September. Doesn't usually rain too long. Less crowded. See you there!!

Highly unlikely that you would be asked to move if it is the same level of service for which you paid in your package. Congratulations on the get!

This is super reassuring since I've never been in September and have been dreading the head and humidity. We usually go in March/April, June, or October. I'm so excited to be there in just over a month.

Volcano Pool Hours ?

When does the volcano pool close for the night ? I have stayed at CSR and I think the life guards were off duty at 9 or 10 but you could still swim after they left. Are the rules the same at the Poly ?

Yes, you can still swim after the lifeguards have left the volcano pool but the slide is closed.

Well, DH said I could book it...a getaway at the Poly this fall! Woot!!! And Aulani next spring! Double woot!!!!

Question about the cabanas - I am interested in getting one and someone mentioned getting food from a menu. By ANY chance, would I be able to order the shrimp, broccoli, potstickers, and bread pudding they serve at Ohanas (after 4 of course)? Or the sushi from the sushi bar? This will determine whether or not I book dinner the same night. Thank you!!!

You can get food from room service and Kona. Now... IF you book the premium cabana, I would almost bet they could get something from Ohana for you. No guarantees but if you get the "butler" for the day that is definitely a possibility!
