Polynesian Reservation thru 9/29/11??

I am checking into the Polynesian GV on 9/29(22 days ) I was looking on the Disney website to see if "maybe" I would upgrade to LV or TPV, and guess what, Only GV is Left!!! I was in shock! I did check on 9/30 and saw that more rooms become available(I guess because value season is over) and even though I am not changing my dates, I was just curious as to how many of you guys will be at the polynesian including travel date 9/29(even if your checking out) Thanks!

We get to WDW on October 1, but we check in at the Poly on October 3 (staying at WL the first two nights to try it). Maybe we'll see you there!!

We are also doing the Halloween party, and building in some down time around that.

I agree with DD, there's no crying in Disney!! Too cute! I cannot wait to be in the Disney bubble again, and the Polynesian Disney bubble to boot! Always nice to know there are others like me, as my coworkers think I am insane for going to the same place again and again, and knowing months in advance exactly how many days I have left. They don't get it, but we sure do!
You are NOT alone. Everytime someone at work asks me when I'm leaving for vacation I quote them in exact days (normal people would say next weekend or in about 2 weeks) but we know we're not normal - we're better!!! We have a countdown calendar at home comprised of Mickey Heads that started on Day 97 and only 10 mickeys to go

Since we will be sharing the Poly in 10 days - what building did you request? we are staying CL for the first time (stayed 2 previous times in Tahiti and loved it!). What night are you doing MNSSHP? Costumed or not? We are going on the 20th - kids will be Jack Sparrow & Belle. I think DH and I are going to wear Univ. of Michigan football jerseys and be fans (I ran out of time for creativity)!! If DH decides he doesn't want to dress up I'm going to go to Target and get one of their cute $5.00 Halloween T's and the orange/black headbands I saw in the $1.00 aisle

Looks like you had a fun time! We have never done CL because it just does not look like it is worth it. We don't mind GV and enjoy Samoa, but we are not sit in our room kind of people. When it is raining, it is either to the parks or the Tambu Lounge!!!! Then we can enjoy the sunny weather by the pool.

Well it's better now then just before the trip. It started with DD15, then DD5 and now me....mine is a sinus infection and I have a wedding this weekend that I can't miss.

I'll be the one hacking in the corner.....

However, good new is that I got our luggage tags and I still need to pre-order our photopass. Not sure when we are going to upgrade to an AP....maybe next week. They don't go into effect until we use it on the 1st day....right?

Can you believe 10 days?! We requested Niue, as I figured it would be close to both pools and GCH. DH was a tough sell doing Disney the first year, as he has never been a fan of expensive vacations, so we did POP. The next few trips POP was all I could talk him into, so the Poly even at GV is a huge step for him, so I tried to keep the price as low as possible. Totally jealous of your CL!!!

We are also going to the party on the 20th! DD is going as classic Minnie, and I am going as Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Minnie (pink dress). DH, in his words, is going as a dad enjoying his vacation with his family I think the T's are a great idea, at least it's something Halloweenish (?) If I hadn't been lucky enough to get my costume on clearance for $10 over the summer I would be going the same route!

We are also letting DD try the Pirate Adventure at the GF. Are you guys doing anything along those lines? We are also trying the Neverland Club one night, have you ever used it?

My two DDs always went to the Neverland Club when they were little...they loved it. This trip they will be 22 and 27 and I know they will walk by the NL club to see it ....just to reminisce

We will look for the classic and the clubhouse minnie then! No pirate adventure for us - we talked about it at one point (and BBB) but we are already spending alot with CL and the extra party ticket so we decided against it. We've haven't used the Neverland Club - our first trip with kids DD was too young but I've heard great things about it here on the boards. I'm sure my kids would love it and would consider it this trip except that we're bringing Gma along and she's willing to stay with the kiddos a few evenings so DH and I can have some time together!

Our daughter absolutely "loved" the Neverland Club!! She just thought it was the most amazing thing ever getting to crawl through Wendy's window just like in Peter Pan The CM alldo such an incredible job and the kids really have so much fun. I would recommend it very highly. Hope your daughter loves it.
