Dear KANGA1,
Just watched your 2010 video. You did a TERRIFIC job!! Your daughter is adorable........she looks like she is one that is ALWAYS in a good mood!!
She'll be 3 years older when you return in June.....it'll be great to see her expression now. I bet it doesn't change a bit!! Thanks for sharing. Our family really enjoyed it!!

Got the trip payed off today. Can't wait for our first poly stay!!

I reserved a third floor balcony in Tokelau. Now, I'm wondering if I should have chose 1st floor patio? Ack........what to do, what to do........I like the idea of walking straight out, but don't like the idea of people being able to just walk by the room. I value peace most of all.

Ahh..thanks Janny! Yes, she pretty much is always in a good mood. Kind of a "go with the flow" kind of girl! Thanks for the compliment on the video. I keep starting new ones from trips taken after that one, but they never seem to get finished! Lol!

That was hilarious. I had seen the easywdw one the day before, too. Made my wife and I laugh really hard.

We stayed offsite in September....and went to the Poly every day for this. Needless to say, it is a big reason why he wants to stay there this trip he proudly wears his dole whip t-shirt!!

Just be aware you can't lock the patio doors from the outside if that's a consideration.

Just paid ours off today too ! I'm kind of having the same dilemma as you... I reserved 1st floor Tahiti LV, wanted to be able to just walk out and play on the beach, etc. They said Tahiti doesn't have a walkway in front of the rooms on the lagoon view side which is good b/c it should be more private but now I'm worried that the view won't be as good as from a 3rd floor room. Maybe I should change to a 3rd floor now?!?! We won't be checking in until about 7:30 p.m. so I most likely won't even get my request at all anyway...I'll just have to wait and see what might even be available. What worries me about checking in so late is that I will end up getting one of those rooms you have to squint to see the lagoon and still have to pay all the extra $$$ for a LV ! I'm thinking and worrying too much again...

Yes, it is. Thanks! I guess we'll stay put!


Cindi.......I think we'll worry until we are there.

How exciting . Check in starts as early as 6:00 or 7:00 a.m., so you can check in as soon as you get there. Your room may or not be ready, and if it isn't, you can head to the pool. They will text you as soon as your room is ready. Hope you have a great trip and enjoy the Poly .

Thanks to a recent episode on 19 kids and Counting my daughter is dying to ride a surrey bike. Does the Poly have Surrey bike rentals? I figure it'll be easier if we can rent one at the resort we're staying rather than go to another resort.

Sorry if this has been covered, but will there be any king-bedded rooms (other than the Suites) once the renovations are finished in 2013? If so, which buildings?

I recall hearing a rumor that they will have King rooms after the renovations also I think it is rumored that all rooms will have 2 sinks but Nothing official yet as far as I know.
