Okay, when we were thinking of staying at the WL, one of the posters commented that after he did his online check-in that he was able to go in and see what room he was booked at. He was able to see that first he was in his standard room, then he noticed one day he was upgraded to a courtyard view and then finally to CL.

Has anyone ever checked in on-line and gone back and noticed a room assignment actually in there? (I am not looking for the upgrade, I'm sure this was pixie dust for this particular individual.)

That happened for us one year. We were GV CL and about a week or little less prior to our arrival, our reservation changed and showed LV (no TPV at that time) CL. Upon arrival we were indeed upgraded to LV and had a spectacular dead on view.

We are back !

The Polynesian is now my most favorite Disney Resort ! We arrived around 3:00pm and did online check in. I had requested Tokelau, first floor, and we got exactly what we requested. The most perfect location for us, we were very pleased with our room. We were in room 1939 in Tokelau on the end close to the main building. We loved being greeted by all the CM with ahola ! DGD and I now say aloha instead of hello
We were worried that it would rain every day because the forecast said 50 to 60% chance each day. It only rained about an hour each day, so that was great !
The lobby was beautiful and we strolled through all the shops, we really liked the Wyland Galleries with all the beautiful art work. I would of loved to buy a bunch of stuff in there
The first night we rode the resort monorail to MK and rode the boat back. I really enjoyed the quick service of the monorail and the relaxing boat ride back. Our most favorite thing to do at the Poly was go to the pool at night and swim then watch the water parade and fireworks. It was beautiful out there at night with the torches lite up . We did not once get asked for our resort ID to swim, but there was only around 10 people swimming each time we went to the pool.
The next morning we had the character breakfast at Ohana, the food was really good ! I especially like the juice which was a mixture of orange juice and some other juices that I cant remember now. Anyway it was really good . We also loved the Dole Whip at Captain Cooks !
We also had dinner at Ohana our last night and got a great seat facing the lake where we could see the water parade and fireworks. The food and atmosphere were great ! The only I thought was they could of served some potatoes , they had lots of meat and it was very good. My DGD enjoyed the coconut races and activities they had for her.
I took a lot of pictures but a lot of them turned out blurry or orange in color. I definitley need a new camera. I will post the ones that turned out well later.
Oh another exciting thing that happened the last night we were there the christian music groups preforming at the Night of Joy were arriving to stay at the Polynesian. My most favorite song in the world is I can only imagine and of all things Mercy Me walked right past me as I was leaving our building ! I didnt say anything to them, I didnt even say hello , I guess I was to surprised to speak The lady at the desk said there were 3 groups staying there.

Maryj11 - Sounds like you had a wonderful time. We also requested Tokelau, ground floor for our trip next month. Hope we have the same luck you did. So glad you enjoyed your trip.

Yes I hope you get your request. I called about 10 days before our trip to check to see if my room request was on the reservation and it was not . I had made a room request a few months before that. So I asked them if they could add Tokelau ground floor. So you may want to double check and see if it is on your reservations. I think some CM say they added your room request and do not even do it.

Maybe they will by then, who knows they change them all the time. The pink is pretty maybe she would like it, its kind of a hot pink color.

Ok... I already know the answer to this (I think) ... but, just to clarify.... We are staying TPV CL in Nov/Dec and we stayed there last year and I was there in May... HOWEVER... my parents will both have ECV's so our only option of transport to the MK is the Monorail correct? They won't go on those small boats will they?
