    They were open early can't remember if it was 6 or 7. I only got a hot b-fast once from Capt. Cooks and that was Tonga toast. I'm not a big b-fast fan so we usually ate muffins and chocolate croissant things that were very good. I'm not sure of the time they opened b/c we usually got the pastries the night before so we could just eat in the room. They do have quite more than I thought though, just can't remember specifics. I'm sure someone else will be able to tell all the offerings.
    Have a great trip :)

    I can't believe we'll be at the Poly in 4 more days (I know my ticker says 5 but we're leaving Friday - that's only 4 days - right??)

    :cool1::cool1::cool1:

    I hope I can make it through work this week!!

    I have gone in there as early as 0500. I am sure they are still open 24 hours.

    Thanks Breezy!

    I can't believe in one week I'll be getting everything in order (read: panicking) to leave the next day! :woohoo:

    Another quick question for the good people of this thread:

    Do the TVs in the Polynesian have spare HDMI inputs? If so, I'll bring a cable, since I'm bringing my notebook to watch movies on the train down.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for the positive vibes! One of my BFF's lives in Orlando and she also told me not to worry, but as a Mom and wanting the most amazing vacation for the kids, I do, LOL.... I just finished bleaching our rain poncho's from our trip in 2008, so we'll be ready regardless!

    For anyone that has stayed 1st floor Hawaii, TPV: if the beach in front of Hawaii is crowded for fireworks, and you are sitting on your patio, are the crowds in your way?

    We were there in October, so def. lower crowds. We always watched from the Patio when we stayed in Hawaii TPV, but the beach was not crowded at all...

    We took rain ponchos and umbrellas and only used our umbrellas because the ponchos made us to hot :thumbsup2 It was easier to pop up the umbrella for a bit .

    Woo hoo wasn't sure being a DVC member the next time I could get back to the Poly, but my flights changed so I'm in a day earlier than expected so I called and got a room at the Poly Lagoon View on an AP rate for the night. :cool1:

    We've been in there about 4 am, before leaving for home. Definitely open 24 hours, but at that time it's just the packaged type items. I would imagine that by 6:30 the pastry case is restocked and the kitchen is open or about to.
