You are welcome to use the hot tub at the Health & Fitness Club at GF. Polynesian guests are not permitted to use the pools and outdoor hot tub at GF. Of course, if for some reason the Polynesian pools are closed, GF has permitted the Polynesian guests to use the pool areas. That is a very rare occurrence.

DH and I may like to have a drink while watching them swim, but I'd like to start my trip to the Poly off right with the glorious pineapple!
This is my tradition at the start of a Disney trip even when I am not staying at the Polynesian (which is often not, it's out of my budget for as often as we go-- thinking of switching it up to less trips, more Poly action). Even when we went to Universal I still drove over to the Poly the night we got there, grabbed a Lapu and watched the fireworks from the beach. So I am here to tell you that you can take your Lapu all around the resorts. When we were staying at Fort, we quit MK in the late afternoon, I boated over to the Poly to get a Lapu, then hit the boats again to get back to Fort. Taking a Lapu outside of its native habitat is a fun experience. Everyone's eyes get wide and you get many comments on where they can obtain a Lapu of their own. Spreading the Lapu love is one of my favorite things to do. I saved my pineapple in my cabin fridge and finished it after my nap.

I miss Disney World!

Although next time I'm going to make it a point to try that Blackberry something Lemonade someone mentioned from the pool bar. Sounds good!

You're welcome, I thought about for myself, but I would personally not be able to relax with all that noise & people, it would stress me out more, I would need a massage after my massage, lol!

Its about 18 hours. We stop in GA at a hotel. We don't like to drive if we are tired. 5 of us on a plane is so pricey and we like having a car when we're there. We're doing IOA too for the first time. The kids are excited to see Hogwarts. It does look really cool. Can't wait.
