Talk soon!
Actually I forgot to ask the most important question regarding the great debate - what about the in-room coffee makers?!

We might, but we are starting our trip at the Contemporary on the 3rd and then switching over on the 6th. CR is the one place my DS9 wants to go. We have never stayed there as a family (I once as a 5 yo) and we are acquiescing to his request.

The Polynesian is our home, but he is the baby and we want his trip to be magical too!

Thanks Carl!!!!!!!!!

You must receive mail at the POLY?

Ya know, you are the best advertisement for WDW and they should send you a pin.

Now that I have your attention. In the parks, what is your favorite TS?

Does anyone know if the hair wrap station is still at the Poly next to the Volcano Pool? My 5 year old is obsessing about getting a hair wrap for summer, but I thought I read somewhere that it was no longer there. Anybody know? Thanks

I meant to post this a while ago, but whenever we would stay at the Polynesian we would always end up in Tahiti and we began to become attached to the Tahiti longhouse because it was so familiar. But these past couple of trips we have placed in Rapa Nui and that longhouse is now our new favourite one to stay in. My mom was not a big fan of our first view, which was overlooking the main entrance to the building (by the little driveway). But I did not mind it, and the last time we had a room on the opposite side facing Tokelau and that view was just gorgeous!

We actually always try to request to be away from the Great Ceremonial House because its such a nice walk there and the Polynesian grounds are just so beautiful. It has now become a home away from home for us and we were discussing earlier about staying at a different resort again and we cannot do that anymore because we have become so attached to the Polynesian.

In April 2011 we decided to try and stay at the Grand Floridian, and I was not a fan of the GF even before we saw our room and after we saw it we were missing the Polynesian because the room at the GF was dirty and not the Polynesian. So we ended up switching back to the Polynesian, and lesson learned that we cannot stay anywhere else now. We have become so spoiled with the Polynesian.

I hear ya....I have been having some serious Disney withdrawls the last few days and seeing those pictures makes me want to be there now. What is even worse is that we were just in the World in January (stayed at BCV/SSR), however I am looking forward to our Poly stay since this will be my first stay since I was a kid....I have visited it many times, but haven't stayed. This will also be my DH and both of my DDs first stay and they are equally as excited. So please, please, please keep posting the pictures, they are all so gorgeous .

They moved the hair wrap station next to the kiddie spray area. Between the main pool and Hawaii building. It is kinda expensive it's like $5 an inch!

We actually prefer a patio room too. My kids also love to see the ducks in the morning and we feel like we can spread out more - especially when spraying on the sunscreen! Although the trip we had last October in Tokelau in the ground floor room did see an uninvited guest. I thought it might be a roach but y'all said it was a palmetto bug or something like that. Which calmed me a bit but still wasn't pleasant to open up the closet and see that THING - that MASSIVE CREEPY CRAWLIE - scatter near my shoes

The Palmetto Bug is a type of cockroach. They prefer to live outside. I rather deal with these instead of the German Cockroach.

It was there in September when we were there, and I haven't heard anything otherwise.

Just bought the plane tickets, now the trip is REALLY real! Cannot wait for our September trip! Decided to drop Club Level in favor of staying an extra day and getting Deluxe Dining. Hope it was the right move!
