When you call the front desk you are talking to the call center not your resort.

I know that feeling!!! My husband and I stayed at the ASM, CBR and then Poly. We also plan on staying at the Poly from now on! This September will be our 3rd year in a row staying there and we love it!!

Hot water is back in Tahiti building, but water pressures sputtering and inconsistent. I so badly want to go to the MK tonight, but my legs will no cooperate. Shower and bed for me!

Last time we stayed at the Poly we ate breakfast at Kona and ordered the press pot of 100% Kona Coffee. MY DH and I both agreed that it's the best coffee we have ever had. I actually tried to find the 100% Kona Coffee when we came back home and could not find any, just the Kona Blend. Finally about 3 months later we found the 100% Kona Coffee at one of the stores here and that's the only coffee we buy. We had never had coffee from a press pot so also found that interesting.

You can actually order Kona coffee online ... although it's not cheap by any means

We have booked CBR.. WL... and GF... Then as the day gets closer we break out in a cold sweat, call Disney and change to the poly.. It's like a very expensive addiction! Poly is not for everyone but for the ones it is for, can't seem to get away!

Live from the Poly

Rainy, overcast, 100%chance of precipitation all day, chance of severe thunderstorms later this afternoon.....this sucks. I guess we will have to cancel our canna rental today. Hopefully they don't charge us due to the forecast. We got late check out for 1:00 pm, and our driver is picking us up at 6:00.

What are we going to do all day in this weather? Any suggestions?

That totally sucks! Maybe you could shop all the monorail resorts.....take a cab to a movie....I would also maybe have your car service pick up a little earlier for the airport and you can do some shopping/eating there as well. Grabbing a new book and finding a comfy place to read can pass the time....

Put on a poncho and go to the MK! Or what about Downtown Disney? Or like someone said earlier... shop at the monorail resorts?

We were looking at videos of the other Disney resorts on Youtube and the entire time I was like: "Oh that's nice, but it's not the Polynesian".

Well, Today is the last day of freedom before our Disney Trip. We literally have something going every single day between now and then, so I took some time to write my DD's note from Mickey, inviting her to DW. I plan on having it in a box we got from a Disney Store order in the mail, with our custom maps and an "I'm going to Walt Disney World" t-shirt. That way, it looks a little legit. What do you think?

I also packed her birthday present, got her Rapunzel dress packed/hidden for BBB, and started debating on what longhouse to request when we check in online next week...Leaning to Samoa.

Another question...is Kona the only place on Poly grounds tht you can get Lilikoi Juice? I spent most of my youth in Hawaii and LOVELOVELOVE the stuff. If it is, will they let you buy some "to go"...if you beg???

Your plan sounds good!

Unless it has changed you can't make a longhouse request when you do the online check-in. You will need to call CRO and have them note it on your reservation.

You can get lilikoi juice at 'Ohana as well, but I don't know if you can get it to go!

We're only six days away from our first stay at the Poly, and I am so excited! We've got a garden view, and I would like to be able to hear the Luau if at all possible. Should we be requesting Fiji? Really, we're not too picky, but since this is the first and maybe only time we've been able to swing the cost, I'd hate to spend our romantic weekend looking at the service shack I know it's just a request, but it would seem to me that most folks would rather be closer to the GCH... so we might get it, right?

Eh.. Garden view could be anywhere!! But anywhere in the poly is great!! Don't worry you will be happy anywhere you get assigned.
