Flipping through my pictures of the Poly to take my mind off the fact that I feel so incredibly rotten. The Poly really is my happy place.

Thanks for that super awesome summary tinkerbellie16!

I think that's the way we'll go. I figure we can always try to change if we learn something new about the construction. And I don't think the toilets will be a problem. DS sleeps with white noise anyway, his sleep sheep. Whenever we hear him stir on the monitor, one of us will nudge the other and mumble "sheep!" to go turn it back on.

I'm sorry I just find this incredibly funny. I can't stop giggling. It also sounds like something that would happen in my house

I actually think I find this so funny because of what happened when my kids were newborns. They always slept right next to my side of the bed. When they would cry my husband would always nudge me and say "baby" I always wanted to say "NO really?? Would have though him screaming in my ear would have been my first clue" ROFL Never did but really wanted to,

When my DS was 6 and we returned from Disney World, my Mom asked what his favorite thing was to which he answered "the toilet".! He was so impressed with how it would suck the water down and would spend lots of time flushing it over and over. We still laugh about that.

As of last Friday there was no indication of any construction anywhere at the Poly, and Tahiti and Rapa Nui were both occupied. You will just have to wait and see if anything starts in Sep.

There is still a lot of work being done on the DVC building at the GF but it is really only noticeable if you are on the monorail or walk over to the GF.

We saw that too when we were there. You could see the work from the monorail but we didn't notice it when we went to the GF for a DVC presentation.

Oh yeah! We had plenty of those nights when DS was still in our room. I shouldn't complain since DH has been really great with everything, but he definitely has his moments, ha!

Colored my hair soon after LOL
It's like my theory that I stuff my husband full of yummy food - because the bigger he looks, the smaller I do (ok, it's a LITTLE funny, but I do want him to be healthy )

THANK YOU!!! You are the first person to respond to my question about the toilets in the other longhouses. I was on the 2nd floor near the middle of Tokelau in May and I wonder if that made me hear all those toilet flushes!

The only way we got in was the stairs - or by making our way through the foliage. I haven't really inspected the regular cabanas in a while so that is a really interesting question! Maybe you get upgraded automatically??? Well, either way, they should be wheelchair accessible. DEFINITELY call and let them know!

100% YES! I am not worried about Tahiti construction. I will be there in October and you bet I will be requesting my favorite longhouse

Cool beans! Yes, definitely voice any concerns when you get there because none of us really know what it will be like until we walk through those doors ... and smell that fabulous lobby... and see the tiki torches... oh sorry, got a little lost in the 'happy place'

If someone in a wheelchair wanted to rent a cabana I'm sure they would open the ropes behind them to let them in.

Just looked at my pictures to check that and there appears to be foliage behind them.

I recall climbing over the rope a few times during our rentals. I believe there's a garbage can between the sets of ropes.

I know this is off topic, but we have a white noise machine for each of our kids that plugs in and goes all night ( you don't have to set the timer)

Only thing I can figure is my dog when she was playing with my old purse yesterday (heaven forbid she play with her toys) must have knocked the pin out of it and somehow the back came off. My luck has been a little off lately ROFL
Ouch!!!!

Of course, my son said to me yesterday, "Wait...you mean you only run so you can eat?" So rather than him biking 3 miles with me while I ran, he biked the whole 6 miles so he could have some candy. Ugh, I'm sitting here and NOT running so need to go. It takes awhile to run 6 miles and it is HOT out!
I got older yesterday... 39 and I hate it!!! My metabolism is completely off, of course my meds have something to do with it & now I think I'm hypoglycemic! No matter what I eat or don't eat no matter the exercise I don't loose it! I stay exhausted, nauseous & shakey! Starting taking prenatal vitamins hoping the extra iron and vitamins would help.. Hoping to get it under control before our trip in 11 days!!! My dr was trying to console me said it was partly the meds & partly my age but she didn't want me to loose anything says I'm at a good place??? My age? From Jan to May I went from size 6/8 to a 12!
