I actually was considering the premium cabana but I don't like the location I like the other cabanas because I can see the pool and the slide and keep an eye on the kids. I trust the lifeguards but hey, I'm a mom

DH is getting double good hubby bonus points for agreeing to this trip!! We went in May so I can't believe I got him to agree to go this fall. He's feeling very guilty over missing our 10 year anniversary. But I did tell him this is a relaxing trip - sleeping in, cabanas, water activities, and just a bit of the parks thrown in. I'm still astonished he agreed though.

The cabanas are definitely a bonus! I LOVED having one in May! We are getting one in November, pending the weather is good!

Glad to hear this...we will be checking in on Sep 19th

2 more sleeps until I leave for FL, and only 5 more sleeps until I am at the POLY!

I have much to do tomorrow, it's not even funny, but I don't even really care. I am just so excited to finally be going!

Completely gratuitous post about how my son and I were talking tonight that we don't even want to buy into DVC, since nothing could ever measure up to the Poly . Okay, I'm going to bed to dream about sitting on the beach, sipping a Pina Colava with Cinderella's castle across the lagoon....

I felt the same way, I did not like the location of the premium cabana, and alot of people walk thru that area going to bar or hammocks, and from regular cabana I could watch the kids slide, closer to capt' cooks, perfect location! We enjoyed both regular cabanas!

But, for now...I look forward to hearing from all of you!
Congratulations! I just had to say hi since our kids ages almost match!!! Your kids will love it! We spend a lot of time at the Volcano pool so we like to stay at the Samoa building. (Bonus = you can go back to your bathroom instead of using the restroom there, not dirty just nice to use your own). DD15 likes to go off and explore, DS12 likes breaks from the pool at the arcade, while DD5 likes to play on the beach. Everything is so nice and centrally located from the main pool.

We only have 55 sleeps left and cannot wait!

While not being able to sleep last night (not even heading to the Poly today ) I found this great video on YouTube. I wasn't sure if it's been posted before, but it really made me homesick.

Poly music and sounds included!

Great video! Makes me even more excited to be there soon! I think I could faintly smell Macadamia nut pancakes and Tonga toast when I was watching it.
