Oh my goodness, I absolutely loved the cruise!!!! I definitely wish we had come to the parks first and then the cruise. The cruise is so much nicer and much more relaxing. Castaway Cay was amazing!! Also, be prepared to eat a lot of food on the cruise. We thought everything was really good and service was excellent. What I liked the best was lounging in the pool or at Serenity Bay at Castaway Cay and not having to get out to get a drink. I am really missing the personalized service!! We have decided on taking a 7 night cruise next year.

Returned from our annual Poly vacation 2 weeks ago. Had a great time as always but really bummed out with the amount of green lake grass ( or whatever the heck it is) that seems to be taking over the beaches at the poly. The beach in front of Tahiti is completely overrun with this crap. It runs all the way around Sunset Point and is starting to encroach onto the main beach in front of Hawaii. It's also over on the beach in front of Aotearoa. Is no one else bothered by this stuff? I'm surprised no one here on the boards mentions it (unless I'm not paying close enough attention). It's bad enough the lagoon water now looks like green murky swamp water, now our beloved Poly beaches are turning into typical Florida swamps!

Something that we have noticed this year that we did not notice the last few years, is that they pipe in the music from Night of Joy. That will be a complaint of mine. We did not pay top dollars to hear any other music playing besides Hawaiian music. Even when we walked to SOA, that music from Night of Joy was blaring.

Glad you liked it . We did it a few years ago and had a great time. It's not something we would do every trip, but I can see us going back again .

Yes, a few times during our Halloween trips in the past if the wind was blowing the right way we could very clearly hear the villain show from the MK during MNSSHP, and it wasn't being piped through the speakers on the beach.

That's a great question! I'm guessing it was being piped in because you could even hear it clearly at the side door of the GCH like it was being piped in. Also, they pipe the music in at the TTC. Thank goodness that only lasted 2 nights of our trip, lol.
