Needless to say, I'm going to be a real mess when this trip is over and I am no longer planning it!
I'm obsessed with the planning. I think that's why I make so many changes...resort, view, ADRs, etc.

I've heard this a few times on the boards. We might be disappointed after staying deluxe when going to a moderate.

I figure we'll be so excited to just go on the vacation that we should keep the excitement rolling with our first choice in hotel first.

To answer your question, we're staying at Riverside for the second half. I'll be looking forward to stretching out in the king sized bed after being in the queen at Poly...

If I am reading your Ticker right you will be at the Poly in July by then some of the Longhouses will have King Rooms and you could put in a request for one. I think being a couple on a honeymoon might give you a good chance of being placed in a King room

Just checking... I think I know but just wanted to double check... Hawaii doesn't have any king beds, right? I believe I saw that but just wanted to make sure!

We r staying off property for the first 6 nights so we can stay Poly GVCL for 5 nights. I am going to drop one night off the condo rental in Reunion and a day off the car and add a night to the Poly. it works for me!! I am soooo excited, especially since the Poly is a surprise for my Poly loyalists children, lol.

I think it is correct to say Hawaii "didn't" have any King beds. With the refurb, all of the longhouses are rumored to get some king rooms, we just really don't know yet. There haven't been enough people from here staying there yet to know for sure.

According to Tikiman no Longhouses with Lagoon View or TPV will have King Beds. He says Fiji, Samoa, one in Niue (HA) and Rarotonga
