Posting live 12 nights CL at the Poly!

We had a real early start today, leaving for the airport at 5. Our flight was delayed due to some weather in the south, but other than that it was a great flight and we only landed 15 minutes late. ME was the slowest I've ever seen it. We waited 15 minutes to board a bus, then another 15-20 before departing. We stopped at WL and CR before arriving in paradise. Check-in was a little weird. Since they were so busy in Hawaii they checked us in at the front desk but since we did online check-in it went really quickly. When they walked us into Hawaii I was very happy to see Lawrence was working and he gave us our leis!

Our afternoon was spent relaxing since we had such an early start. We went up to the lounge for a drink and a snack and then for a nap! When we woke up everyone got dressed and ready. I was supposed to meet some DISers but I felt a bit shy. We activated our photo pass plus and then checked in for our dinner at 'Ohana. Dinner was GREAT! We had a great server. We weren't rushed at all. Everyone had an excellent time. After dinner we browsed Boutiki and then my cousin and I decided to take the kids swimming. Well, it was too cool for Liy and she was shivering after less than 5 minutes in the pool! We got out and got dried off and ended up watching Wishes from the lounge. Now everyone is snuggled into bed and resting for an early start tomorrow. Out first park day will be at DHS!

Wake up time! Danimal had a great night throwing up. I think it was a combination of excitement and eating a ton of sugar yesterday. He is prone to getting sick like that. We'll see how he does today.
