Here is the rest of our Poly CL review from our trip in August. I originally posted this review on the Poly thread, but thought you all might like to see it too!: I have to say, we thought the Poly CL Lounge was awesome! The only other CL we have stayed at was YC and from a lot of perspectives the Poly blew it away. First off...ambiance. The view from the lounge is amazing! We found ourselves wanting to sit in the lounge and relax a lot, as opposed to YC where it was just a 'dine and run' kind of feeling. There was ample, comfortable seating. I have to say, the lounge was quite busy the week we were there. I believe the Hawaii building was completely booked up. Some days it was difficult to find a seat, but we always managed. Here are a few pictures of the view from the lounge. These pictures were taken on a cloudy day and they do not do the beautiful view justice: Check out the rainbow!: When we stayed YC CL in April one of the CMs gave us a tip. He told us that during the evening appetizers it gets most crowded when the lounge first opens up at 5:00 and then again right before they take the hot appetizers away, around 6:30. The times in between are much less crowded. This tip seemed to hold up at the Poly too. Here are a few pics taken one evening at 6:00 - The third floor: Breakfast was very nice! Cereals were Fruit Loops, Special K, Raisin Bran and Corn Flakes. Most mornings they served Bagels, Cinnamon Rolls, Croissants, or a combination thereof. There was always fresh fruit, juice and Nescafe (ick) coffee. I found the mid-day snacks to be more varied than what they served at YC CL. We saw a combination of the following items during the 8 days we were there: spicy mixed nuts, gummi bears, jelly beans, chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies, popcorn, goldfish, and chocolate covered almonds. Whole fruit and soda (Coke Products) was out all day: If you ask for beer any time of day they will bring it to you without issue Perfect for taking down to the pool, although you must transfer the beer to a non-glass container. Another tip, this one for the kids...if you ask any of the CMs they will bring you chocolate milk...the good high-octane stuff...Nesquik in the plastic bottle! It's never in the cooler, you have to ask for it! And, speaking of kids' items, this was the one area where I was a bit disappointed. Most nights the only kids item out was mini corn dogs. On two or three nights they had PB&J out instead. Those were they only kid-specific items we saw all week during the evening appetizers. Considering that Disney is a kid-centric kind of place, I do wish they would provide more options for the kids who are not adventurous eaters. Just my opinion. Here is a pic of the (almost gone!) PB&J: Overall, we thought the food during the evening apps was quite good. However, we didn't find it all that much different than what YC served. A little too much fried, phyllo dough type stuff in our opinion. However, they did have a few nights without fried items. These included spicy meatballs, pork skewers, sushi, and sticky wings. All of these items were great! I did manage to snag a few pictures during evening apps when it wasn't really busy. Here you go... Beef Wellington AND Guava & Almond Empanadas: Fresh Cut Fruit AND Crackers with the following types of cheese: Wensleydale with Cranberries, Havarti with Jalapeno Peppers, Boursin Another pic of the fresh cut fruit and cheese and crackers. This time you can also see the caramel sauce on the left and a cold Asian salad on the far right: Pita Bread and Sundried Tomato Hummus: California Sushi Roll, Vegetable Sushi Roll and Wasabi: The beers: Heineken, Yuengling, Bud Light and Longboard: So, we loved Poly CL and would definitely stay there again! Wishes from the lounge was great! They did dim the lights to cut down on the reflection off the windows. And, finally, I have to give a huge shout-out to all the CL CMs. They were all so friendly and welcoming! A special nod to Ivette...she was spectacular...a true gem! Any CL questions...ask away!
