Thanks! I can't wait to be in the warmer weather at the Poly. It has such a nice tropical feel.

Oh it certainly does. There's nothing like stepping off the ME bus and hearing a great big, cheerful "Aloha!" and then you know you're in paradise.

Okay, I have a few questions, and sorry if these have already been answered but this is my first tme posting on the Poly thread and I haven't read through the whole thing. First I wanted to ask about the torch lighing cermony, can you tell me some details? I read it is at 6pm, how long does it last is it worth the time to set aside to check it out? Also, what is the best place to view Wishes from? Lastly, what is the boat transportation route and schedule to the GF and MK? Thanks so much!

Welcome!

I have only 'bumped' into the torch lighting ceremony but I can tell you it is not very long at all (5 - 10 minutes). I thought it was neat but wouldn't schedule around it. If you happen to have a 6:15 pm ADR at one of the restaurants or will be walking that way to get on a monorail, it would be nice to catch it.

If you want to view Wishes from the Poly, just go to the beach by the Volcano pool - or anywhere along the beach! It's all a similar view although nearer the pool, they do pipe in the music.

None of Disney's internal transportation is on a schedule. You might wait 5 to 30 minutes for a boat depending. It is a very quick walk to GF though and very lovely if you are interested in that. If you want a quick ride - the monorail is your best option.

Do we need to bring our own sand toys (ie buckets/shovels/etc) for the beach?

Yes~
The afternoon poolside activities sometimes includes sand castle building, and they have a few shovels and buckets for them to use, but very few for the amount of kids that wanted to build.
