Anybody have any construction updates on Tokelau? I think they have been running on schedule with the other longhouses so far. I was hoping to get one of the new rooms in Tokelau; we will be checking in on June 2nd. Any news would be helpful, Thanks!

I'm curious about this as well...would love to know if they're sticking to the schedule. This will tell me our chances of getting Tahiti on September 18th (which is only 4 days after the date they're scheduled to be finished). The cast member I talked to last week on the phone said she's 95% sure Tahiti will be done before the September 14th date.....but we all know how accurate THAT information is

Does anyone know if they serve Kona Coffee in the club level area or the Nescafe coffee?

Eek, I would think staying CL they would at least serve the Kona blend, if they felt they couldn't serve the 100% Kona!!! That's a Hawaiian coffee and a great one at that!!

Disney's contract with Nescafe is over (thank goodness!) and now the coffee is by Joffrey. I haven't experienced the Joffrey coffee yet, but that is what will be in the lounge and at Captain Cooks. The Kona blend is available at the coffee bar in the GCH and at Kona Cafe.

Hopefully the Joffery is better than Nescafe. It has to be...right?
Good to know about the coffee bar, I always seem to forget about this.

Thanks!

SOOO glad Nescafe is out! Kona is awesome coffee but pricey. I wonder if Starbucks is working on a contract since the MK bakery store switch.

First Disney trip!

Ok, I'm 40, hubs is 43. Taking our 5 and 4 year old, all for our first Disney trip. Staying club level at the polynesian. In reading through this thread, a lot of people mention checking in online. We check in on Saturday, so five days away. I booked through a travel agent. I haven't gotten any emails or information about checking in online. Should I worry or just show up? I have a confirmation number so not too worried.

Online check-in isn't required, it just makes the onsite check in process faster. However, I've read in several places that you shouldn't do online check in if you're staying Club level Not sure if this is still true - maybe someone else can weigh in.

At that time we rode Soarin 3 times in a row w/o any fastpasses ! It might be a 15 min wait for test track. Never needed a fast pass for that. The crowds were so different this time. We just were not expecting it nor prepared for it. I kind of wish we would have stayed at a cheaper resort such as POP so that I didn't feel like we "wasted" so much money. We could have done this trip for probably 1/3 of the price if not less and maybe then our "disappointment" level wouldn't have been as bad . Yet I am so glad I got to stay at the POLY, esp. before DVC steps in. Just really feel it's all going to change the feel of these resorts. IMO CR looks much more "commercial" now more so than the look of old time Disney's Contemporary. It's going to "crowd" things up too. The main pool is already crowded, so sure hope there are plans to add at least 2 more pools! They're going to need a biggie for the DVC side and should definitely look into another quiet pool down by Rapa Nui and Tahiti somewhere. Well, now I know what to expect in the future I guess. Not sure if we'll be back or not. This all just left a sour taste in our mouths.
Your experience is the same that I remember from four years ago. I'm trying to plan the best I can. We do hit the parks right when they open. So hopefully that helps a lot. I remember waiting no more than 20 mins for anything, ever. And we always went spring break even!

I am the type who will retreat to the hotel if the going gets too rough. And we have BBB and PL planned along with all our dining reservations set, so hopefully that will help make it seem we are doing what we want. Additionally, we will be in Orlando a few days before we are supposed to check in at the Poly so we can visit DTD then and have more days at the parks.

Smile Addicted to the Poly posts


I'm getting super excited about our upcoming trip. I have been looking at pictures for days. I'm dreaming of all the wonderful smells of the food and flowers. I can't wait for the Lapi Lui drink, the Kona Coffee, the Bannana pancakes, even the smell of our suntan lotion. My family thinks I need an intervention meeting for this serious addiction.
We've never stayed CL before. This year we are taking my in-laws (age 76 and 79) who have never been to Disney at all.
The only worry I have is getting through security at the airports with DD on oxygen. Last time coming home was horrible at the Orlando airport.

We are also staying CL for the first time this July! 57 days to go!! We did the online check in but found it a bit redundant with what I told the IPO. Did you do it as well?
