I'm hoping this year, again with no online check-in, might get the full CL experience!
There were so many families checking in the day we did that we were walked over to Hawaii. We didn't mind, since it gave the 2 year old a chance to burn off (aka: run) some excess energy from sitting through a plane and bus ride. Our check in still took place in Hawaii.

I wouldn't have minded walking over, we love the grounds. I was mainly disappointed at not being able to check-in over in Hawaii.

For a while this year CL guests were getting an email telling them to use online check-in. But a few weeks ago we received instructions to check-in in Hawaii and have not received anything about online check-in since. I wonder if this was just an experiment and it didn't work out very well?
I'm so used to FB, that I forgot we can't "Like" here! Can't wait to see your pictures--it was still looking lovely last week.

I find myself trying to "like" DIS posts too!
I will definitely be posting pictures on FB, and a few here too!

Oh trust me, I'd be sorely disappointed. There's just something about checking in with the castle right there in the distance...

Are there towels at the Polynesian pool? If not can you take ones from your room or should we bring some from home?
TIA.

Has the tikiman posted anything besides longhouse refurb dates on his FB page? I don't do FB, so I have to rely on his website and he hasn't updated in awhile! I thought I read that he does his annual pilgrimage to the Poly toward the end of September? Just curious about the rumored pool refurb/DVC/GCH construction. Anyone have any new info?

I have been lurking on the thread, but I missed a few weeks, and only read the last 4 or 5 pages, so sorry in advance if this question is beating a dead horse!

I have been checking in with his site too. Nothing as of yet. He did give us some info when he was on the DISboards.
