And I you, Ms. Crazy Kanga! I think you'll enjoy the Polynesian significantly more than the Aggies will enjoy September 14th.

I DISagree with EVERYONE

This was a horrible review!

Especially when it comes to THIS little ...thing. That broke my heart....

Except that I'm not really. Because I LOVED it! Every word of your review. As always, your pictures were gorgeous (really love the early morning shots...so peaceful) and I loved reading about the Poly through your eyes. Of course, I'm going through such a bad case of Disney withdrawal right now that you could write about the Motel Six in Ocala and I'd be jonesing to be there too. But this is much better. We LOVE us some Ohana (which means no one gets left behind) and that amazing bread pudding. Thanks for the shot that made me want some. Really bad. Way to be a tease.

Speaking of which...

GO...STATE! GO STATE!

I've missed this guy. I know you have too.

I hardly ever look at screen names when reading posts, but this little comment caught my eye and made me think...that's something ZZUB would say...and lo and behold it WAS you! Love you TR's ZZUB! Glad you had a great stay at the Poly.

Roll Tide!

I was born and raised in Tuscaloosa AND I'm a huge poly fan...which makes your review like the best ever! 53 days and counting until I am there. No online check in for me, so they won't stick me in some old room.

Hey Zzub!

Excellent start. Love the pics.

Hey LaLa!

Joey pointed us over here so I'm sure some other Maelstromer's will be by shortly.

Hey Zzub!!!

The "bat signal" indeed went out

Shelby and La!!!

Excellent review of one of my fav Disney properties.

Pictures were great.

It's pronounced, "Ahhh - tay - errr - Oh - ah" (Maori name for New Zealand)

Good to see you again!

Maelstromers? What's a Maelstromer?

Z, I must agree with my girl LaLa. That waterslide review was about as lame as you can get. Has she just so completely beat you down with all her gold medals that you don't even bother anymore?

We have been discussing a possible Poly stay next year (after the two trips we have pending before 2013 ends), so thanks for the review. I found myself nodding in agreement with your online check-in comments. I won't do it, because I have very often gotten the exact opposite of what I've requested on the room preference front, and I've found the best way to fix that is a friendly heart to heart at the check-in desk.

On the food front, I smiled at your Dole whip photo....one of the best things about the Poly, for sure. And even though I have a hatred of all things banana, I do love that banana bread pudding at Ohana (which means family). I won't tell you about the time they (my family, evidently) sent me off with a not-so-delightful case of salmonella poisoning. .

Nice to see you, and even better to see LaLa. Glad you and your girls had a fun trip. Don't be a stranger.
