I might make it sound more embarrasing that it really was

Was just wondering if any of you knew names of artists/cd's that might feature some of the polynesian music I heard. Mahalo!
You might want to try asking Tikiman, either on his site or his FB page. (You can find both with Google).

Sent from my GalaxyS II
We ended up with a BB from our stay in March, it was 35% off poly, so I HAD to use it (would have been wasteful not to right?) anyway we will be there Oct 20th for our first Poly stay EVER! I'm beyond stoked!
I love your Dis name.......great minds think alike!!!!

I switched our reservation from AKL to the Poly today!

We've never stayed at the Poly and it's always been on my to-do list. But I starting reading about the DVC changes coming and it really motivated me to stay there this trip and experience it the way it has always been and loved.

Question: The cast member told me all they had were standard rooms when I asked for a garden room. The standard room is a garden room, right?

Thank you! Just so I'm clear, I can access everything via monorail or boat at the poly, right?

Well, no, not everything. You can't get to DHS or AK by monorail or boat directly (and even Epcot you have to either transfer monorails or walk to the TTC). . But there are buses. Is there a particular item you're concerned about or wanted to know?

You will love it! It was our first onsite stay and we loved it! Standard rooms are now garden rooms. We stayed in Tokelau and I could have sworn it was a lagoon room as the view was amazing! But it was std view.

Have a great time!
I want to try CR but cannot resist the pull of the poly!

I'm worried about my kids falling asleep in the stroller and having to wake them. Also, can I take a large double on a bus? Thanks!

You can roll your stroller right onto the monorail. The Poly boat launch is small and I'm pretty sure you will have to fold up the stroller. Also will need to fold up the stroller on the buses.

We had the most amazing GV room! Fiji first floor looking right at the marina. We read about it so we asked and got it! I never like staying on first floor but this time it worked really well. We were like a 45 second walk to the side entrance of the ceremonial house by the arcade and like a 2 minute walk to the dock to take the boat, which we adored. Being on the first floor we had a big patio and it looked right at the sailboats like 10 feet away. We could not have asked for a better GV room! Have fun!
