We are in the car! 4 hours away. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for 1st floor Samoa!! We have 3 kids so the patio gives us a little extra space. It's also a great spot for a cocktail after we put the kids to bed.

We have only stayed in Samoa but I think if they don't have us in a first floor room we might see if we can get a patio in any building??

Drive safely, and post pictures! I'm getting excited for our trip, now that we're in 2013!

Have a great trip! Tokelau is also a favorite on the quiet pool side.

Questions

So I'm booked at the Poly for March 11-18, and just heard that the pool will be closed through the 1st of March. Any experience if things usually stay on schedule?

Thanks so much!
Mo

GuitarRob: AWESOME, EXCELLENT THREAD!!

I was just looking through the first few posts, at the gorgeous pictures, and immediately I felt that old familiar urge to want to go "home" to the Polynesian.

This past year we took a 9-night Disney cruise, but our last WDW trip was in 2010. I am in serious withdrawal here!!

I'm going to go back and continue browsing this terrific thread and see what's new at my favorite place; thanks to all who have contributed.

Edited to add: How could I forget?! We actually were at WDW and had breakfast and dinner at the Polynesian (Kona Cafe and 'Ohana) this past June, while on a port day in Port Canaveral during our DCL cruise (it sailed out of NYC). So really, I *have* been to the Polynesian within the past 6 months, but we didn't STAY there, so I forgot about it. LOL
Hi Seaspray!!!

Great to see you! Wishing you and your family a Happy New Year

Just put my request in for Samoa, ground floor, volcano pool side yesterday. We'll see what they can do for us! We go 1/24. Woohoo.

Hope you have a great time.

Sounds like Samoa is the way to go....we had requested it for our March stay but then found out it is under renovations starting in February

We picked Toleaku as our new choice....good choice??

Those of you who have stayed CL here in the past few months. Can you tell me if they have bottles of water for you to drink/take with you? I am trying to see if $100 more a day will be worth it for us? Thank you.

Also if anyone as any resent pictures of the CL and the food I would love to see them. It might push me into it

I would pay for a TPV room again. We had a TPV room in Tahiti, top floor.... It was truly magical.

Due to abuse, they no longer have bottles. There is now filtered water in a container that is like the one they have the juices in. They will fill a carafe for you to take back to your room if you request one.
