First visit 1976, Pre-2010 too many off sites to remember, WDW 2/2010 BC CL, Disneyland GC 12/2010, WDW 4/2012 POLY TPV, WDW 7/2012 (off site), WDW 12/12 POP and 4/2013 POLY with Disney Dream cruise!
That's us too! We were just talking about how excited we are to check-in and enjoy Ohana's in one day. Great minds think alike.

Polynesian pool layout

Does anyone know where the private cabanas are in relation to the children's pool activity area and volcano? Is there any privacy or are they in the " middle" of the action?

Broke down and did online check in today. Requested Tokelau and Niue. Niue went into rehab on March 3 and Tokelau on March 31. Right now we check in on June 3. Hoping that we can get a rehabbed room. Really, I'd take any building except for the ones going toward the Luau cove and Marina.

They are recessed from the main pool area. There's 2 shallow steps that lead to them, but there's a decent amount of privacy

We'll be checking in on the 27th of April until May 5th. Anyone else going to be there that week? Just over 2 weeks away!!! Need to tie up so many loose ends before we go...has me a nervous, excited wreck! Also has me nervous that I am scheduled for an epidural on my back 2 days before we leave... I may have no choice but to have an EVC delivered...but in any case I will make the best of it !

We'll be there then too! I feel you on the loose ends. My MIL had emergency open heart surgery this past weekend. I actually have this week to finish up lots of loose ends while she is in the hospital. I can't really visit her there because of the distance and taking care of the kids. But once she gets home I will have to be visiting her and helping out a bunch so there won't be much time for extras. Hope that your epidural goes well! I am sure we will both really need and enjoy our vacation!

We'll be there with you and Alli76. We are doing 2 days at CSR before checking into the Poly on the 28th. We will be there until May 5th.

I can't believe it is so close. I have so much to do between now and then.

I don't post on here often, but I had to share. We are leaving in the morning for our first Poly stay! We have two nights at the beach before we head over to Disney. We are all so excited! We've only ever been to Disney once before and we stayed at CBR that time.

Thank you all for all the info! It has really helped my planning go smoothly!

You can call down to the front desk and see if you can check out late. The latest I have seen it is 1pm. You have to call Front desk the morning of your check out and see if they will allow it. They will check with housekeeping to make sure its ok. I have never been turned down but know they can say no.

As the pp said, check with the front desk. Some people have reported that you need to check with housekeeping for late check out, but we have done it through the front desk. We asked about it the night before and were granted a late check out of 1:00. If it's still the same, up until 1:00 pm is no charge; until 3:00 pm is half a night's room rate; past 3:00 pm is a full night's rate. Getting a late check out will depend on how busy the resort is and if your room is needed right away. Good luck .
