I'm not really sure what to search for so I hope this inquiry is okay in this thread.

Thanks all!
I know exactly what you're talking about! I'm not sure what it's called, but I think I have a picture of it from when I stayed there in 1996. I'll try to track it down and post it! I have very fond memories (hence my avatar and handle. I think the Boutiki figures are the ones. I noticed that for the first time when we were there this last January. I loved those and was sad when they got rid of the window scene.

I cant remember the song that was playing but I'm sure it was the one from the cartoon. Would be great to see a picture if you can find it. All the best in your search!

I found one picture online but not of the original window. These look like the ones that were under the stairs but I can't tell exactly where they are in this picture (the details on the website say 'Old Store'):









Sorry, the store where the figures in question are upstairs in the store called Trader Jacks. Picture of these guys can be seen here:



Looks like they could be the same!

Thanks!

The two regular cabanas are located a few steps above the regular pool chairs on cement. It is enough to be secluded but you can also see the pool through some bushes and down the stairs. You are not sitting right next to the pool with a clear view but you are very close. The premium cabana is on the beach closer to the zero entry portion with less foliage.

We rented a full day, regular cabana and loved it!







And here is the link to the official Disney site where you can see the cabana in relation to the pool:

We are going in August so I can assume we will have at least one downpour in the afternoon as is usually the case.

They look very open and I think there is a ceiling fan inside. I couldn't decide which half of the day so I booked the whole day - but I guess it depends on your other plans. If I had to choose though I would probably pick the first half.
Thank you so much!

Got in yesterday around 3:00. Tokelau room 1916 first floor, almost corner room (not on quiet pool side). I did request pool side over the phone, but only 2 options available when doing line check in. A couple quick thoughts...why the bleep am I up so early? Sitting in the GCH drinking coffee and no one but CM's around.
Room looks great except for some peeling paint above the shower. We did T-Rex last night for dinner and have our 8:40 at BBB this morning.
Family was on edge by end of day yesterday. It always seems like it takes a day or so to decompress and get in the vacation groove. If I keep this sleep schedule I should be able to do a daily check in around 5 am.....I sure hope not. :lol
Aloha!

LOL.....So you had a "Magical Awakening". Even though you are losing sleep, I for one appreciate the early morning post as this is when I often check in on the DIS before work.

Our family also needs to decompress on the first day. We find that the first day we arrive has to be SLOW with nothing scheduled. We are all a little crabby and tired from airports, planes, and the let down once the adrenaline subsides from the anticipation. We all feel better after we have unpacked and had a good night sleep. The first whole day is always so exciting Have a wonderful vacation!

Sheila you will love it. It's very relaxing and nice to have a reserved spot in the shade with a stocked fridge and a fruit platter.
