    There were so many families checking in the day we did that we were walked over to Hawaii. We didn't mind, since it gave the 2 year old a chance to burn off (aka: run) some excess energy from sitting through a plane and bus ride. Our check in still took place in Hawaii.

    I wouldn't have minded walking over, we love the grounds. I was mainly disappointed at not being able to check-in over in Hawaii.

    Oh trust me, I'd be sorely disappointed. There's just something about checking in with the castle right there in the distance... :)

    Are there towels at the Polynesian pool? If not can you take ones from your room or should we bring some from home?
    TIA.

    Has the tikiman posted anything besides longhouse refurb dates on his FB page? I don't do FB, so I have to rely on his website and he hasn't updated in awhile! I thought I read that he does his annual pilgrimage to the Poly toward the end of September? Just curious about the rumored pool refurb/DVC/GCH construction. Anyone have any new info?

    I have been lurking on the thread, but I missed a few weeks, and only read the last 4 or 5 pages, so sorry in advance if this question is beating a dead horse!

    I have been checking in with his site too. Nothing as of yet. He did give us some info when he was on the DISboards.

    I said the same thing after we stayed there last month. I love CR and AKV but the Poly was sooooo beautiful and relaxing. My dd fell in love too. We spent a whole day enjoying the pool and the grounds and went to the park at night. We lived everything about the place! Thank goodness for the AP discount. :)

    Was it just about the longhouse refurb schedule?

    I have a room scheduled for 2 nights in June at the end of our trip, but it's tentative. My kids loved the Poly. I wasn't thrilled while we were there, but the Poly love has been creeping up on me! I blame all of you Poly freaks!:lmao:
