It was good to be back at the Polynesian again, since our last 2 stays were at the Swan. We asked for the Samoa bldg. again and due to our late check in around 10 pm, we did get the Samoa bldg, room 3611. It was an end room with a view of the top of the hawaii bldg. Not a good view but it was nice to sit on the balcony and only encountered our rude smoking neighbor once. I shouldnt complain too much because I am sure they had their share of our 3 teen ds mouths too. Good points: Captain Cooks was close for snacks and late night food Transportation was good. Only stood on bus once.Love the boat ride back from the MK. Wishes from the Beach. Arcade challenge for the DS. Actually had the ds in the quiet pool this time. Enjoyed it. Coffee maker in the room for dh. Helped him get out of bed in the morning. Great ap room rate, sorry I would never pay rack rate to stay here. Too expensive. Bad points: Wishes from the Beach, didnt hear the music. and one night there was hardly any room in the best viewing area, I cant believe all those people were staying at the Polynesian and I am sure they were not. I used to be a promoter of enjoying a disney resort even if you arent staying there, but now I have a different opinion that those "visiting" should wait until the end to sit etc. If I was paying rack rate I would be really upset. I am still wishing they had a scan gate with room card access only for the pool and beach. One night dh was watching wishes from a hammock and it started to rain, he said he heard people around him say, hurry we need to get back in the cars and head to our motel etc. Gheesh. At least he was in the hammock. and just had to go back to our Poly room. One day, sunday, our room was not made up until around 5 pm. We didnt leave the room until noon, but I think that was a long time to wait. There really arent alot of rooms on the floor and I guess since we were the end room we had to wait. Volcano pool - the ds said the water was too cold and chose the quiet pool instead, they said the water was much warmer. I also thought the water looked a little too cloudy. The slide closes at 8 pm. Way too early.
