Surrey Bikes - Age/Height limit for 'driving'

It has been awhile since I rented a surrey bike and I've never done so at the Poly. Last year at BWI, we inquired but for some reason, they wouldn't let my son be his own 'driver' - but I can't remember if it was his age or height.

Has anyone rented a surrey bike lately that knows what the restrictions are around them? DH and I want to ride as well, but I think DS wants his own or he would at least want to be in the front pedaling.

And if you rented one at the Poly, where were you able to bike and did you like it?

Thanks for any info!

We haven't stayed at the CR, but are booked there for our first stay in December. With that said, we love the GF. The CR has never appealed to us as far as theme/decor, but after researching it and seeing a lot of pics, I am very excited to try it .

There are tons of very neat and unusual pins. This was well worth the money. Now the kids can trade to their hearts content and I am not buying pins every 2 seconds st 8.99 or higher a pop.
Glad the pins are exactly what was described . Hope the boys love them and can do a lot of pin trading on the next trip.

Maybe I missed it somewhere but what about shipping to the resort? Is there a fee? Trying to decide if we should just ship a snack package or order from GG.

Ok...quick question. When is the pool supposed to be under construction? I know I've read it a few times but can't find it anywhere?

Our new poly cup isn't dishwasher safe! Wish we could've known this before we bought it.

Best way would be to do online check in. I believe they allow you to make 3 requests. You could also call reservations now and have those things put on and then follow it up at online check in.

I am so sorry this happened. We are going up in December if you would like me to try and replace them for you. I would be glad to do that.

I bought the cream-colored coffee mug the first week of March and all the screen-printing has washed off already.

I think I bought the same one a couple of years ago (ceramic coffee mug) and it didn't survive one trip through the dishwasher. I don't think it said anything about not being dishwasher safe.

It's green and it says nothing. It was nice while it lasted.

Yea, the paint comes off pretty quickly. I bought one at WL last December and by January there was nothing at all on the mug. I saw that green one when we stayed at the Poly this summer and had to have it...but then remembered the WL one. I didn't get it.

I still think that even handwashing it that it the printing wouldn't last very long.
