That's a great SV view! Before we decided to stay CL I had requested Tokelau, and I think that would have been a wonderful choice. Enjoy!!

We are just getting back into our normal routine after such a wonderful trip to the Poly. I had a great time and I'll be sure to post pictures once I get them uploaded. Hope everyone who is at the Poly now or going soon has a great trip!

FWIW, a CM just told me that Tahiti would be reopening a week from tomorrow.

Is anyone going to be around to check it out?

I have to wonder if the CM was referring back to when the Tahiti Refurb was due to begin 7/14 which would have had it being completed by 9/14?

I'm sure he was... Too many things that contradict his statement are floating around! Probably just wishful thinking on my part...

LOL I think they need to make this sign larger and maybe in neon so people will see it. I also think they need to do room key checks every day and not just on weekends.

Yes a guest can visit you at the Poly. All they need to do is tell the guard they are meeting up with you and they will direct them to the parking lot. Your cousin can valet or just park themselves.

Arrived at the Poly today. I LOVE the new design but I must admit, I loved the cruise even more!!!

We went to MK but it was so much more crowded than it has been in the past this time of the year. We're going to AK tomorrow and then Epcot, hopefully neither will be too crowded.

We've had some glitches with the magic bands but with the wonderful help of Jeremy in Guest Services, the problem has been figured out and he's putting in a ticket to IT. For some reason, I am unable to use my band for any purchases or DDP credits, it will let me into the parks though.

I do think they need to block off a section of the Poly beach for resort guests only. We took the boat back from MK to watch the fireworks from the beach and yep, the family in front of us were going to watch the fireworks from Poly before heading back to their resort. Granted, just about every table was empty so it was not a big deal but had it been crowded, it could've meant the difference between a paying resort guest not having a spot because it was being taken by a non paying resort guest.

the beach right outside of Tokelau.
Thanks for sharing this picture. This is one of my very favorite spots at the resort (and on property) and it will be a very different beach by the time I return to the Poly. It was a lovely quiet refuge and I spent many happy hours there over the years swinging in the hammock and reading a special book while hearing sounds from the Magic Kingdom and taking in all the activity on the lagoon. It was always on my list of must-dos to spend time there.
