Thank's so much for the information! That's exactly what I was looking for I will double check the policy when I call. Carlnix30...it looks like we will be missing you and your family by about a week. We check-in in 4 weeks and 5 days I hope you and your family have a super time!

I have a question for you Ploy Gods and Goddesses......which longhouse would be the best: Rarotonga or Tokelau? We'd like to be semi close to the GCH, but DH is concerned about views. Any thoughts, ideas or suggestions? -Heather
We are fans of Samoa and love to be as close as we can to the Volcano pool, however Tokelau would be my next choice.

This is what I was told as well, but they said rain. Saying bad weather would be a challenge with definition of bad weather.

I double checked and you can cancel without fee for rain.

Wow! DH tried this one in Kona last December -- I think it's great that they have it at the Poly! I like the little things that make each resort different from the others.

I'm at the Poly now. Last night before going home Pool is closed right now for "chemical imbalance"... Anywho, perfect time for pictures & as I was walking around I heard about 6 families talking about how they were going to go back to their hotel. Mostly values & even off site! They really need to start carding people as this pool was super busy today!! Even heard a couple families say they would go over to Cont to swim since this one is closed!

It would really help with the capacity if they started requiring the showing of IDs.

Other than this, having a great time!

I totally agree on the pool "room check" thing. We are staying at the YC this time and a good part of the reason is that they strictly check room IDs before letting people even sit around SAB. I love the Poly, especially the volcano pool area with the beach, lake, and castle views, but I am tired of fighting for a place to sit with people who obviously (we could hear them talk about it) weren't staying at the Poly.

Thanks for your lovely photos--I particularly loved this one!

You do realize, however, that for your first stay--doing CL--has forever spoiled you. Once you go to the dark side, it is very difficult to go without. . .it is an addiction that must be fed. I speak from personal experience and many thousands of dollars lighter in the wallet. That said, I wouldn't trade one moment of the time we spent at the Polynesian in CL for anything.

I'm sorry, but in this instance, I think would become a tattle tale! I have a hard time with rule breakers, and if I am paying the money to stay at the POLY, I want to play without outsiders/ transients taking up all the space! that's just me though....I'd have to speak up!

While the pool hoppers happen, we need to remember that DVC folks have the right to "pool hop". They may have been staying off-site and/or at a value, but could also be DVC owners. Many DVC folks (and I am not one) choose to stay at a lesser costly location for portions of their trip to conserve points.

I don't want to start a debate because we have all experienced the overcrowding of the Polynesian pool simply because it is located in close proximity to MK. Frankly, the volcano pool was never a huge draw for our family--our kids actually preferred the quiet pool even when they were young. Despite that preference, it is a royal pain to not be able to locate seating when you choose to locate at the volcano pool.

I love those "chemical imbalances". . . I can't tell you how many times the volcano pool was closed over the years due to inconsiderate folks who refuse to properly attire their "potty trained" little ones.
