We came back earlier last night, but we'll see what it's like tonight. Dole whip machine was down yesterday, haven't checked today.

We're in Tokelau again, I love it! Grounds are beautiful, as usual. Hot yesterday. Cool today but sunny. They were calling for rain, so we're happy! Ohana with our party of 15 in about an hour!
Wow! Congrats on the wonderful weather so far! You never know....we went in early October and it was awful. One day was warmer back in Chicago then Orlando. Have a great trip!

Does anyone know whether the premium cabana is still there? If so did they raise the price? It was $620 for the full day or $319 for half.

I hope I don't miss having a hot tub too much at the POLY.....I'm thinking Oct should still be warm enough that it won't be a huge issue! would sure be nice if they would add one though, it is as DELUXE resort afterall!
Thanks Marie I feel the same way about our Dani (and she knows it) You WILL be fine without the hottub...it's the Poly after all!!!!

It's still there. IPO offered it to me when I was booking our cabana day. I have to check my email to see what price I was told.

Club Level Email??

When staying club level, is it true that Conceirge sends you a personal email/survey to find out your likes,etc? If so, when do you receive this email(6 months before travel, 90 days before travel,etc) Thanks!

I remember reading that the Poly is the only place you can get real coffee. I didn't pay much attention, b/c I don't drink it, but DH does. Where do we get it? We have a breakfast ressie at Kona one day and at O'hana ~ will it be there? What about the other mornings ~ do you get it with you re-fillable mug in the quick service? thanks!!

Yes, you should get a questionnaire from the IPO for your ADR's and any other reservations that you need made (golf, rentals, tours, etc). You should receive it before your 180 day mark so they can make your ADR's for you right on your 180 day date. If you haven't received it and that day is getting close just email them and they will send it to you (you must have a reservation already before they can book stuff for you).

The "real" coffee is available from the Kona cafe. DH & I aren't coffee drinkers, but have travelled with them. My sister said Kona restaurant serves Kona coffee in a french press and a Kona blend. She says the coffee at 'Ohana comes in a pot, but doesn't think it's Kona coffee (maybe the blend). Unfortunately the CS serves nescrape.

I LIKE NESCAFE!!!

Don't discount the coffee YET. Try it first. Granted, I take my coffee with cream so it really mellows out the taste but I like Nescafe coffee (reminds me of backpacking around Greece and I would drink Nescafe frappes all day).

I know a lot of folks on the DIS boards don't particularly like it, but it isn't bad (IMO)! In fact, I got coffee (not the press pot though) at the Kona Coffee bar in the morning (the coffee bar) and it was HORRIBLE.

But there are a bunch of places at WDW that don't serve Nescafe if you really hate it. For instance, Starring rolls at HS uses beans roasted onsite. The water parks serve up Joffrey's coffee. And there are good coffee carts around Epcot and AK. Boma has a Kenyan press coffee. And SUPPOSEDLY Kona Coffee bar serves up 'real' coffee (but I didn't think so - it has been the ONLY time I've ever asked for my money back at WDW).

I'm sure there are other places too!

Garden View - Which Building

Hi - I am new to this site and forums, but I am already getting so much from this thread.

I am staying at the Poly (1st time) this September with DH and 3 year old DD. We reserved a Garden View room and I requested a ground floor room so that while she naps or goes to sleep we can hang out on the patio a bit and run to get drinks or whatever without having to go through the room.

After reading through some of these posts I think I should be more specific in my request and include a building request as well. Any thoughts on which buildings are the best for a Garden View Ground Floor request?

Thanks for your feedback!

I don't mind Nescafe at all....but I am one of those weirdos that doesn't care for Starbucks so I usually don't offer my 2 cents re: coffee. I LOVE coffee though. DH was also SO happy to get to Disney because he didn't like the coffee at US/IoA
