Also she had no idea where I stayed. I only said we had gotten back from Disney. We could have stayed at a value or even off site. I could see a comment like that if we were flaunting that we had stayed at the Poly but we never said anything about where we stayed.

I was floored. I said " We are not rich by any means'" to which she answered " If you can go to Disney World you are rich." We save for our trips and yes we do go deluxe but we save for that. My dh is the only one working as I am disabled. Yes we could go much less expensive if we went to a value but we would be uncomfortable and that is not what a vacation should be. We give up a lot of things to save to go. I am sorry if Walmart doesn't pay her a decent wage but there are other places to work and she shouldn't run others down. It makes me very leery to mention to anyone we have gone to Disney now.
Funny enough my cousin and aunt work for Wal-Mart and my grandma for Kohls. I'd love to see this cashiers reaction if she were to find out my cousin and Grandma have been on 3 cruises just this year, a trip to NYC to visit me last year and hopefully soon a Disney trip. Even though they get paid nearly nothing the simply don't eat out, don't live beyond their means, and they save save save.

That is so awesome. I am really happy for them! They are going to love Disney! Where there is a will there is a way.

Sitting here having my dinner using my Rose and Crown souvenir cup and planning our next trip in December. What a great way to spend an evening.

I'm packing for our trip and just realized I had no idea if there are coat hangers in the closet areas. Should I pack as many as I need? I'm bringing mostly dresses so I'll be wanting to hang up a good bit of stuff.

There are only about three or four so I would pack some if you need more than that. Have a safe trip down to the Poly!

Are there irons in the rooms? One of my dresses for the trip is cotton, and I know it will need to be ironed.

I saw an iron and ironing board in one of the closets so I'm assuming that yes there are. I'm going to have to do a fair bit of ironing myself once we arrive.

You can call Housekeeping and request additional hangers

Ah, good to know. We're flying down instead of driving for the first time so space in the suitcases is a greater consideration than it has been in the past, not that hangers take up too much room.

Yuppers I am. I just keep sitting back and picturing the Poly. We are trying to decide whether to do any ADR's other than Ohana. Ohana is a must do on every vacation. I thought maybe of just keeping it in the resort and making an ADR for Kona and keeping the other two nights open and grabbing something from Capt. Cooks.

It's hard not to have fun planning, especially when you're planning for a trip to the Poly . You can always make ADRs now and cancel later should you decide you don't want them, that way you have them just in case .

I wish I had a good photo of the castle to post for you right now. I pray you will be back to the Poly soon. Hopefully the look of the Poly wont change too much.
