Ah, well then, if it's in your budget go for the TPV for your special trip for the reasons I mentioned yesterday! Of course I'm admittedly biased!

If the cost isn't that much of an issue, then I would probably say that TPV room is worth it, with the one caveat being that balconies in Hawaii aren't guaranteed. You can certainly request them (and I could be wrong, but more TPV rooms are on the third floor with the balconies as opposed to the second floor) but they aren't guaranteed. Of course you could face the same problem with the GV rooms, but I would be less annoyed about that since I didn't fork over $100+ more per night for the room...

Not sure if I should post this here or on the restaurant board but I thought I'd try here first.

I know Capn Cooks has a Dole Whip machine but do they have pineapple juice so I can make my own float? Just wondering if I need to add pineapple juice to my grocery list.

Also, I think it got lost so I'm asking agian, does anyone know what kind of coffee makers the rooms have?

I don't think they have pineapple juice at CC's. Not sure about the coffeemakers. I think they may be upgrading to a better brand with the room updates but I could be wrong about that.

The coffee makers have been switched from the tiny Mr. Coffee type with carafe and filter baskets to a Cuisinart pod system. I have to admit that I am a coffee snob so I haven't even tried the pods. I bring my own electric kettle and coffee making supplies so I can have a super fabulous cup of coffee in the morning. I make a second cup before leaving the room and put it in the fridge for an iced coffee later.

So it's like a k-cup? If so, that's good for us. I don't drink coffee but hubby likes his Keurig and DD makes hot cocoa. We'll bring the k-cups from home. Thanks!

No. K cups won't work. They are oval shaped bags. I have a pic I will go get it.

Have you tried the pods? are they as good as K Cups? Trying to decide if it is worth me bringing my Keurig.

Just FYI - those coffee makers have been in the rooms for a while now - at least in the Hawaii building when we were there for our trips in May and October last year

We've done both ... and we much prefer the GV CL side. We don't spend a lot of time (if any) out on the balcony anyway and if we do want to watch the fireworks or the water parade we can just go to the lounge where they pipe in the music/sound or head on out to the beach. GV CL is much quieter for sleeping, in our opinion anyway (you don't hear the toot toot of the boats). If it were my decision, I'd say save the money and do GV CL, then you can use that money to have a nice anniversary dinner at one of the Signature restaurants. But really, it all boils down to personal preference. If you want TPV CL then do it.

Just so you are aware, this is the view from the third level TPV CL rooms

Poly bus transportation

I apologize if this has already been asked (I did search the thread and didn't find this info)...

Can anyone tell me what other resorts the Poly shares buses with? Particularly going to AK, HS, and DTD (or what stops are between DTD and they Poly, for example: Typhoon Lagoon)? I'm thinking it may be worth driving to those locations...

TIA!

Just a quick dining report, we're in WDW now and visited the Poly on Tuesday for dinner at Kona Cafe. Everything was excellent, as usual. HIGHLY recommend the new lamb chops. Seriously excellent!
