    You need a Lapu Lapu!

    Sorry you're having a crappy birthday. Maybe you should start planning that birthday trip for next year....

    Maybe someone will come on here & post pics to make your day....:thumbsup2

    Just wondering, how did your stuff get to your second resort? I'm wondering because we may spend our arrival night at the POLY ( since I can't find availability for our whole stay) .....bit then we need to check into BWI the next day, I was thinking we'd need a taxi to transport all our stuff over ?

    Luggage services will come collect your bags and transfer them for you. When you get to your new room you call and they bring them up.

    Sorry your birthday is going kind of crappy. Hopefully you can turn it around.
    No fresh pics, but this always cheers me up:

    Happy Birthday, and definitely start that Poly birthday planning! :flower3:

    You're welcome! Maybe Outback can whip you up a suitably fruity-rummy cocktail to put you in a Poly mood. :)

    HOLY CRAP!!!!! We are going for our first trip in June and this photo shocked me!!! For the past six years we have been going in Nov/Dec (last year October) and we have never seen the pool this full!! Is this what the quiet pool will look like every day????:confused:

    I am starting to panic! :sick:

    Okay...caught up stink bomb in the pool....relaxing a little more.

    So sorry....sending you a mental Lapu Lapu your way for your birthday. After I cried on my 39th bday at work I swore to never work another bday for awhile. I took my 40th off and hung out at home (rainy day) but at least I spent it with the kids and not at work.

    :bday:party::drinking1

    Well my birthday greatly improved when I spoke to my new boss and found out I can get TA rates on my August trip and save $1100! :scared1: I can totally swing all 12 nights at the Poly now!

    Less than a week until our very first trip to the Polynesian! Thanks to everyone for the great tips - I am hoping that our requests will come through and that watching the fireworks from the beach is as magical as everyone says it will be!!

    It tastes like a peach frozen drink with grenadine floating on top. I know it has southern comfort in it. I couldn't taste the liquor at all.
