Just checked in! Got our Fiji patio room we requested. We'd initially had beachside. They nicely changed us to marina view. Pool is open. Stoke level is about a 10.

Just back

Just back today from a 6 night stay. We requested a first floor Rarotonga room, and mentioned how much we had enjoyed 1812 last year. (By a very politely written fax We were put in 1813! So perfect! The volcano pool was open, and Hawaii and Samoa under refurb. We were never affected by noise. My dh got an unexpected tour of the sample renovated Rarotonga room directly across the hall from us. He didn't take pictures he reports the changes were nothing fancy, but a nice, fresh update. Double sinks, green walls, and there was a swatch of sample carpet in our hall in a green/brown tone. The sample room had no room number on the door, if anyone is on site and wants to find it. Dh just asked if he could peek. Captain Cooks definitely has hamburgers, chicken tenders, and 1 other kid item in addition to fancier options. Well back to mourning my departure.

Hope your trip is fantastic. Would love to see pics of your patio on the Marina side, we are planning on requesting Fiji first floor too and I am thinking of requesting Luau Cove side but still not sure

We last went in 2011 and we ate there a ton - but now I am not seeing so much that my kids would eat on the kids menu. Were there changes? All I see now is Chicken and Pineapple Skewer, Sweet and Sour Chicken Stir Fry, Seasonal Fish. Are there no basic choices. Basic sandwich, etc.?

While Allears has some of the best, updated WDW menus, I have noticed that they do not always list every option. For instance, at Captain Cooks, you have your choice of several side items and they can also be purchased separately (french fries, polynesian chips, fruit, veg, jello, etc). As for the kids' meals, they are on the dining plan and they do have typical kids' fare. My DD's favorite is the kids grilled cheese. I get the grown up grilled cheese and we also get the tomato soup - it's great! And if you want a dole whip for dessert, no problem. They give you a plastic cup to fill and we just wait until we are done with our lunch to fill it up so it hasn't melted during our meal

Yes, they are. We weren't on the DDP, but either way (paying out of pocket or DDP) the kids meals come with the main course, 2 sides, and a drink.

Laundry?

Do they sell soap in one of the resort stores? DD needs dye/scent free. Would like to not have to fly with a Tupperware of white powder in my suitcase...
Only 4more sleeps!

Not sure, I still haven't done laundry there in 4 Poly trips!! But "all" does make their "free and clear" in those individual drop-in pods. I usually pack those when we go to the beach in a condo.

Yes they do, but I don't think any of the options are dye/scent free. I remember Tide and Downy fabric sheets, but there is only one other option and I'm sorry but I can't remember. I did the all-in-one sheets which was much easier traveling with, but no sure if they make them in a dye/scent free. I would bring whatever specialty item you need and not hope for it there. Enjoy - we LOVE the POLY!

1,000th Post

I just had to come by one more time quickly and celebrate my 1,000th Post! Even though we are cheating on the Poly this year ( Sorry Poly) I do consider this my home resort.

This group of wonderful people have been so friendly and helpful in all of the years of trips behind us. We will be stopping by in June for a cocktail with Tim the bartender!

Great photo! I can't wait to see more. So is that considered a marina view or standard view?

This is the longhouse and view we have stayed the past three times we have been there. Last year we stayed on the 3rd floor which we enjoy the most!!
Enjoy your time there!

That is the marina view but it's the same price as a standard view. All the rooms in Fuji are standard view so you request Fiji, marina side. That's the side we always stay at and love it!!

We checked in online and were only allowed to make two requests. Marina wasn't an option. I had requested Fiji building + patio. Got the beach side and requested a move at check-in.
