I can run up and get food from Kona Island Sushi Bar for dinner and bring that down but if there's not a huge difference in price I'd rather have the attendant arrange it for us. For lunch I figure just grabbing something simple from Captain Cook's would work well though again, if there's not much difference in price to have the attendant arrange it then I'd much rather do that.
anybody?

I don't know if it is standard procedure, but the cabana attendant wasn't able to get any food for us on our 2 cabana days. We were directed to call the private dining line and have food from room service delivered. Definitely way cheaper to go get CC or sushi to go for yourself.

We did order drinks from the bar that the cabana attendant delivered but that was it.

I hope others can chime in with there experiences as well.

The tree is absolutely beautiful.
Looks like better weather is on the way for the rest of your vacation and you will be able to get some pool time in. It always cracks me up when vacationers from the north are swimming and you see other southerners walking by in sweaters- the difference of the meaning of swimming weather.
We are coming down on the 22nd and also hoping for some warmer weather- I have looked at 15 day forecasts and it looks favorable.
This is our first time staying at the Polynesian and also the first time staying CL.
I am looking forward to all of your updates on here, checking multiple times a day. Enjoy the rest of your vacation.
Please save me some wings and pot stickers.

Here's a bit of extra magic from our afternoon. You don't see this every day:

I'm glad my Father wanted to sleep this afternoon, or I may have missed this.

Edit: I just looked a little closer at the high-res version and if you look close enough to the left you can see that it's actually a double rainbow.

Gorgeous! Hey Rob, any idea what Walter the bartender's hours are @ the Tambu?

My husband & I just looked at the hi-res image and my husband noticed the rainbow ends at the Castle

Leis?

Ok, it's been about 5 years since we've been to the Poly. Do the still give you a lei at check in? We have booked CL for March, if that matters.

If they don't do this anymore, do they have a service where you can order real leis? We are going for our 25 th anniversary so I would like a nice greeting for our special trip.

Thanks for any info!

guitarob, although we've stayed at Poly "x many," my last Christmas stay at Poly was 26 years ago - these photos are beautiful and bring back happy Christmas memories! Continue to enjoy and thanks so much for sharing!
