Steve, Do you know what is happening with the computer ordering system at Capt. Cooks? We have been getting reports that they are covered and you have to order through a CM.
From time to time the system will have problems communicating the orders to the kitchen. I don't know if that is what is happening now or if it is a software thing or maybe they are changing the menu but I am sure it will not be down for long.

From what I am hearing it has been down for several days. Capt Cooks runs a little slowly using the system. I can't imagine how it is without it. I was just hoping it didn't have anything to do with the construction and that it would be back up quickly. Guess I am a little concerned that this could be the start of the GCH work. Just want to be prepared. Wont ruin my time there I will just plan meals a little differently.

Question

We have a Chef Mickey's reservation at 6:45 the night we arrive. Will we be able to watch the torch lighting ceremony before heading to our dinner, or is that cutting our time too short?

In a related note, are the torches still functioning? I heard they might shut down with the construction.

What time is the torch lighting ceremony? It shouldn't take too long to get to CM's from Poly. You can either take the boat from Poly to MK and then walk over to CR or you could take the resort monorail with CR being the 3rd stop.

I believe the torch lighting is at 6:00 and takes under 15 minutes. But I've never been there so I could very well be wrong.

Do we need more than a half hour to get from the Poly to Chef Mickey's?

I know this may be a moot point since there has been so much talk about the pool closing after the new year but if by chance it is open in August, is it big enough for all the Poly guests? All I keep thinking is that it will be elbow to elbow in that pool. Anyone stay during a busy month that can share their experience with the pool?
We were there the beginning of August. I can tell you the pool at mid day break time/early afternoon was crowded. It was hard to get a seat or even 1 chair to throw my towels on so they would stay dry.

But on the weekend it was less crowded since they were patrolling the area and wrist banding and kicking people out.

I can tell you on our pool days I was at the pool by 8 at one of the tables that I could sit and see the whole pool and the castle...ahhh.... And what was even better was that my dh and kids were either in the room sleeping or just waking up and I had the pool to myself those 3 non park day for about an hour, occasionally a straggler.

And at night it was even more crowded.

I don't think there was a refill either but my 12 yo made some masterpieces! And she ate the entire thing!

I am relieved to hear no refills on dole whips. On our last cruise that is all kids wanted to eat. Plus I was thinking what a mess with kids running back and forth refilling cups.

No, you shouldn't need more than a half hour to get there. That's actually the amount I was thinking you would need, just so you can leisurely take your time getting there.
