    I am a 41 yo and I went down the slide. I don't recall seeing a height requirement on any signs. It might of said the depth where the slide comes out which is between 3-4 feet.

    Kids came down in life jackets and the life guards let some parents wait near the bottom to assist their kid.

    It's just dark inside for a bit. I wore my goggles sine I lie to see and I wear contacts. Most of the time I never went under when I came into the water. But sometimes I did. It just depended on if I was sitting or laying.

    My DH and I both went down the slide a few weeks ago. My DH is almost 6'2", so no maximum as far as we could tell!

    I just got a letter from Disney in regards to the fridge. Is the Poly affected? Thanks!

    Wow. For some reason I thought they were almost done dealing with the refrigerators. I thought I had seen posts from people who said that they had gotten new ones.

    I think it is a form letter they are slowly sending to everyone. Covers their butts now instead of when you arrive.

    I hope by December this isn't a problem. We are doing standard view because we would have a fridge. We had planned on bringing soda and water to make it sort of like club level for us. This is what we mainly used the lounge for. I don't like the idea of having to buy cups and running back and forth to Capt.Cooks. It would be rather hard for us to be able to afford CL again. I also do have a medical reason for needing a fridge. My insulin needs to be refrigerated.

    When we were at the Poly two weeks ago, our room had a working refrigerator.

    9 days from today we check into the Poly for the very first time! 10 days from today DH and I renew our vows on Luau Beach. I am so excited! I do have some last minute questions though that I was hoping some of you could help me with.

    Are there any "must dos" while staying at the Poly? The day we renew our vows we are going to be hanging around the resort all day. I've never not gone to a park during the day. We could easily spend the day at the pool, but is there anything else fun that we should look into?

    How long is the jogging trail at the Poly? Is it easy to follow? Also, when is the fitness center open at the Grand Floridian? It is my understanding that Poly guests can use the gym at the GF. Thanks!

    You could try and rent a cabana down by the pool. Get a Dole Whip and walk around the resort. Have lunch or dinner at Kona.

    I am not sure on the jogging trail but the GF fitness center is open for Poly guests.
