I am here at the Poly now (loving Hawaii). Wanted to update everyone on 'Ohana. We enjoyed breakfast at 'Ohana on 6/25. Pictures were taken outside in front of the sign. I guess the inside pictures with Stich didn't even last a month!

You should have enough time, but you might try checking on the DCL cruise forums for pick up times. We are taking our first DCL cruise in December so I have been reading threads over there lately and this has been asked a few times (although I can't remember what the time frame is). I want to say they pick up around 11:00 or 12:00, but I'm not sure.

And while I asking dumb questions, does the fridge still get cold that it will freeze an ice pack in the way back but not freeze the milk up front? I remember it did that the last time.

Oh and the ice in the long houses-is it made out of drinkable water?

Ok that was more then 1 dumb question.
I know there is a microwave, but I'm not sure about a toaster. I can't answer about the fridge as we don't use it, but hopefully someone will be able to answer about that as well as give a definite answer about the toaster .

Glad you're having a nice trip and enjoying CL . Thanks for the update on the Ohana pictures.

I'm missing Saturday . Of course, every night they have a selection of cheeses and crackers, vegetables and dip, pineapple (and maybe other fruit?), hummus and pita bread, and kids' choices like pb&j uncrustables.

I know these are all subject to change, but I remember having the beef wellington on a Friday night back in Sept 2011 (it was fantastic ), so maybe they don't really change them all that frequently?
Thank you and YUM! We will do the Poly portion of our stay Sunday - Thursday so we will get to try quite a few things.

Does anyone know if tikimans site is totally up to date as far as room categories? We just checked in and were given 1503 in Hawaii and I booked theme park view while his site shows it as lagoon view. Price difference is substantial, so I wanted to be sure.

Can you clearly see the castle unobstructed? If so, then it could be classified as TPV. His list might have been made from someone booking a lagoon view and getting that room, but it could have been an upgrade.

If you can't see the castle, I would ask to switch.

1503 is TPV unless they have recently changed it. Here's a photo from the patio:



Dang - hate posting from my ipad and the DIS app. I will have to fix that. I will be back to fix the photo, but you can definitely see the castle although there is a tree down at the beach that could have grown more, but on the 1st floor shouldn't look much different. The swing on the beach was also in front of 1503.

Yes we can see the castle from 1503. I just didn't want to pay for TPV if it's indeed lagoon view as indicated on tikimans site. We've never been on the 1st floor so hopefully we like it!

We will be at the Poly CL soon, our first time. I would love to hear your thoughts on the lounge, the check in process and the Hawaii longhouse in general.

We are staying at Poly for Fourth of July. When I called to make a change in my ressie Sat night, the res agent told me that there is some construction going on. The first and second res agents never told me about this and now I'm wondering how if at all this might affect our stay?? Can anyone shed some light on this?
