CL is a nice perk that offers a lounge with continental type breakfast items in the morning, snacks and pop/water in the afternoon, 1 or 2 hot appetizers in the evening (around 5-7 pm), and then desserts (around 8-10 pm). The Itinerary Planning Office (IPO) is also available to make any ADRs or book dinner shows, answer any questions you might have about your upcoming stay, etc. You can still make ADRs and other bookings on your own, but IPO is there in case you need help with something .

Staying at Poly and thinking about doing dinner at Boardwalk Inn. What's the best way to get to Boardwalk from Poly? Also, are there still activities going on at the Boardwalk in the evening? Anything a 3 and 5 year old would enjoy?

The best way to get to BW from Poly is to take the monorail from TTC to EPCOT and either take the boat at International Gateway to BW or walk from the International Gateway to BW.

First thing that comes to mind is Poly -> MK -> Boardwalk.

Or Poly -> TTC -> Epcot -> Boardwalk if you don't mind walking.

Best route might be a cab.

I don't know the schedule for the performers on the Boardwalk (haven't been in a while). There used to be acts that young kids would be interested in and the performers would try to engage them.

When dining, just across the water, at Yachtsman Steakhouse we will usually monorail to Epcot stroll back to the International Gate and take a boat. We just allow a little extra time for transfers if it's a peak time.

I agree that Ohana is tough to get, but not nearly as bad as trying to get a Be Our Guest dinner!

We leave in 5 days. You'd think that since we go every year, it'd get old. Nope.

Can't. Contain. The. Excitement! I'm about to burst! And I feel so unprepared compared to other years. I haven't even begun putting anything together - except that the breathable Frogg Toggs rain ponchos that I ordered just came yesterday. That's it. Soccer tournament all day tomorrow, so I guess I know what I'll be doing Sunday!

I believe all refrigerators are being replaced, but don't quote me on that.

Thanks for the update! Now, I need to find out about Tokelau since that's the LH we requested and are hoping for!

I don't believe so they just refurbed it. Now if some one poos in it or something they will close it to thoroughly clean it.

Anyone staying at the Poly March 2014? We just booked the 3-7. I am really hoping there is not too much intrusion of construction for my brother to enjoy his first stay there.
