We observed in December that our nachos had "fewer toppings" than in August, but it was still delicious!

WOW! I can't believe she called with the news while YOU were at WDW! What a wonderful memory you'll have of your first full day at WDW in 2014. Congratulations to DD! That is so exciting! What are her work location preferences?

If you haven't already seen it, I highly recommend reading through Disneyfreak508's award-winning DCP thread. She is amazing and it's great reading even for those not interested in the DCP.

HaHa - We observed in January that our nachos had less toppings than they did in December. Maybe it was a late December cut-back.

Congratulations! That is really exciting. I was chatting with a store clerk who was on her last day of the program and she just loved it.

I got nothing done while I read that whole thread! I found it when she was almost at the end of it. She makes the program sound great. My son was in the DCP many years. I just have to say - don't choose food service. But now he manages two restaurants, so some good came out of it after all.

Captain Cook's at Polynesian Resort: Closes on March 28 2014; re-opening in the summer. Temporary quick service location will be in the Great Ceremonial House. The menu offering will be similar, but no Dole Whips. The temporary location will be open daily from 6:30AM to 4:30AM.


Just tried to go to another link related to Capt. Cook's because the closure time listed above seems waaaaay off (it should be 11 PM, I believe) and I received this error message from the Disney site:

Someone Ate the Page!
Or for some other reason, the page you're looking for cannot be located.
Bummer! Hopefully Captain Cook's is open again by Sept. 16th! These were far and away my favorite QS meal our whole trip!

ETA: Also, if you wouldn't mind updating the roll call I switched my dates to Sept. 16-24th to be able to enjoy the F&W Festival! :-) Thanks!!

What a coincidence. Jess seems really sweet. Is she still working part time at the Coronado?

What would be the best way to get from WL to Poly during the day when the monorail is down?

They are running buses from the MK to the Polynesian. You could take the WL bus to the MK, then switch to the Poly bus. The two bus stops are right next to each other. The WL bus stops at the CR when the monorail is down, so plan on a little longer trip.

You could also take the boat to MK and then take a boat to the Poly.

Or, you can take a taxi.

How long is the monorail supposed to be down? I have to confess that I have not been following that.

Hi

Could we please be added to the lodge list. We are checking in on 9/1 and checking out on 9/7. It will be me, my husband and my son and daughter. I am nervous because we have never stayed there before and I am not sure what to expect. We stayed at YC last year and I loved the location. My husband and son want to try the WL and so I agreed to try it. Hope that I enjoy it!
