I'm sure this has been asked before. But, can someone please tell me if you are able to buy that amazing smell in the Poly lobby?
Every time I walk in there, I swear I'm in heaven, and I would love to bring the smell home.
It reminds me of the pixie dust scented fragrances sold on disneystore.com

Got checked into SW and we have a good boarding position which I was happy about. We are packed, ME tags are attached. I think I have finally figured out what is really needed and what to leave at home so we packed fairly lite but there is plenty of room for extras to bring home

I just got back from dropping the doggies at my friends and the house is clean and laundry done! Everyone has eaten for the night and the kitchen is closed, besides DH and my morning cup of coffee of course! Breakfast will be McDs while waiting for our flight to board!

The limo should be here about 5:30am so we are sacking out early.

It was so cool to see all the new members of our FB page so I added the link in my signature. I will post there but will update here as well.

Well, my flight leaves in 13 hours! Better finish up and get off to bed!

Aloha
I hope you had magical dreams and are eagerly awaiting boarding! Have a great trip and look forward to reading about your adventures! Oh yeah, and fingers crossed for great weather!

We are in Capt Cook's waiting for our ME pickup time. Only about a half hour until we head to the airport. We had a great 12 nights. Everything has been fantastic. We don't have any complaints except having to go home!

Thanks Tess!

Today was incredibly magical to say the least!

Being back at the poly has reminded me why I love it so much and we have only been here about 10 hours!

49 days and we will arrive at the Poly. It will be our very first stay at the Poly and we are excited. After a stressful summer we need some R&R.

I had written a wonderful review about our arrival day but then the wifi here went done and I lost it. Quite frankly this iPad posting is not as easy as the computer! I think I will do a proper TR/review with the pics on my camera when I get home.

Basically we had a seamless flight, we're whisked off to the Poly on ME and got some Pixie Dust on arrival as we were updated from GV CL to TPV CL after a few other surprises

After a long but fun day...two parks, a mobbed MK and the a moderate DHS in the evening we came back to our room, collected some treats in the lounge and a cordial or two (one for Tess) and watched Wishes from the balcony. Wishes never gets old!

We sacked out about 11ish and were awaken by rude guests hanging in the lobby at 7am just chatting away. Oh well... Miss Manners missed a few I guess??

Now we are in the lounge having breakfast, except for DH Who we just saw him run by twice now...LOL no thanks. The ducks are linings he beach and the Poly grounds crew are getting the beach ready for the day. My favorite time of the day in the morning at the Poly!

We are off to MK for RD. I will certainly be posting on the FB page. Aloha!

Laundry Questions-Poly

How many washer and dryers are there in the laundry room at the Poly? What is the cost to wash and dry?

TIA
