Thank you so much for your photos! Now that I know we're going I can finally indulge in thoughts of my favorite place. Maybe this year I'll haul my butt out of bed early enough to join Guitarob on his morning walks. Such a reversal from every other day - usually I'm up with the sun!

Thanks so much!!
I don't remember seeing s'mores. I want to say no because there wasn't any place to roast the marshmallows but I may be wrong.

The movie started at 9ish, just after the water parade went by.

There were smores when we were there Apr 2-May 5. They probably started around 6:30-7:30. You can see the firepit in one of the pictures. It was pretty small and somewhat dangerous with all those little ones swining around flaming balls of sugar! My son was hit by my daughter, she burned his arm!

The Disney movie started around 8:30, I want to say....I remember some nights it had to pause for the electric water pageant, then pause again for Wishes.

Starting to bring in the suitcases and working on a base tan today....weather is just as warm as Orlando today!!! But I would rather be at the Poly having a cocktail by the pool!


Every muscle in my body aches from working in the backyard getting it ready for DD15's "Somewhat Sweet 16".

we departed the poly, sadly, this morning at around 3:20am.
we had a great time!!! we had a garden view room and still were able to watch wishes every night from our balcony!!! the only thing keeping it from being a mk view room was a few branches. (room 3227)
the cms were great!!! from the guy who delv. our 2 tons of bags to the room to the cm who gave me a room keys when i locked mine in the room. (yes, locked the room keys, credit cards, cash and drivers lic. in the room)
we had a great time at the poly. i will have to say, between the contemp. and the poly, i have to go with the poly. dw likes the poly and dd likes the contemp. we wanted to stay there for along time and glad we did it.
im hoping any changes coming to the poly dont destroy the resort. next may, we are going to spend a few nights over at the grand, just to say we did it.
in closing, great resort!!!

Don't forget!

Those of you who will be at the poly between June 1st to June 9th, I would like to meet some of you. We have rented the premium cabana all day and night at the poly on the 7th! We are planning a quiet dinner at the cabana around 6p but the rest of the time is wide open. If the live feed is working we can even set up an event to say hello to those who werent fortunate enough to make it on your trip! So pop in and say hello! Of course my name is Carl and my wife's name is Azure
