I checked my pantry last night and thought it would get us through the day We have the fire lit and still have power so we are bunkered up good

It's a far cry from the tropical paradise of the Polynesian!
Good that your home! Good that your travel allowed your safe return home. Now just stay home and wait for the next 24-36 inches to fall!

I love the silence after the snow fall. Get some pics for us!

Nice photos!
About 5am. I love to get up early drink my coffee, watch the sun rise and the cranes to fly by. It's a good way to get all the work still running through my mind purged.

I'm thinking of upgrading our GV CL room to LV CL. I would love to look out our window and see the beautiful scenery, but then I think of how silly it is to pay for that view when I'll have the beautiful view from the lounge.

You could just change your ressie to another resort & complain & then get a free upgrade....seems to be the theme lately!

I had been considering POR but it seems no one wants to really stay there.

Hey now I thought this was in the past? A lot of the people moved are because Disney promised them something and they could not follow through on it. Not the guest just complaining they didn't like something.

I'm just stating a fact. I'm a guest looking to try a new resort before my Poly stay and if so many people are leery of POR then I think I'm entitled to be as well.

The problem with POR is that people booked rooms that are being upgraded and the rooms are not ready, so Disney has been shifting these guests to deluxe resorts.

you'll have to let me know if I'm missing out since I was thinking of a RR for my princess' 2nd birthday.

Just got home from the Poly. Left the resort at 1:15 and the pool was alive and kickin. Noticed the slide was running water and asked if it was open. Yes it was.

There is some scaffolding where the waterfall should be and it's not running and there were few people in it as it was an overcast windy day. Awesome weather for visiting a park.
