    Hello Everyone! :) Sorry it's taken so long to post, we arrived on Friday and have been having a great trip. :sunny: Tonight I finally have time to post (Tuesday night) because it's pouring the rain and we came back early. :teeth:

    So, if anyone has any Poly questions... or other WDW questions post here and I'll try to answer as fast as I can!!! :wizard: We are in Samoa... great garden view room with view of pool, wedding pavilion, GF, EWP, lagoon, and partial Wishes view. I'll tell our room # later after we checkout.

    Some basics....

    No walls or visible construction at the Poly
    Exteriors of new lobby stuff done, working inside now
    Evening EMHs are fun, but more crowded than e-nights
    Light Motors Action is boring
    Haven't hit Soarin' yet
    The dining plan is making us all sick from eating too much
    Haven't seen Cinderellabration yet
    The boys loved Stitch's Great Escape
    Met StitchInside... only lime green ribbon I've seen!!!!

    That's all I can think of off the top of my head.... I'll write more later. :)

    :wave:

    Please tell me the rain will stop....we're leaving in the morning!

    Are you happy with the Poly? What are the crowds like in the parks?

    Did you do any shows? I'm booked at Ohana's tomorrow night and mickey's backyard bbq on Wednesday....I'm starting to wonder if I've over scheduled myself....PS's most days....

    Maybe we'll run into you...I have two young boys too....they're hoping to see power rangers at mgm...have you hit that park yet?

    Looking forward to poly tomorrow!

    Hi!

    Glad you're having such a great time!

    Just wondering what the new construction areas in GCH look like? How is the configuration different from what you can see? What stores are reloacated so far? Is Captain Cook's still open and can you still get there from inside the lobby? Haven't been there since the construction began, but from what I've heard I'm curious as to what how different things will be...

    Thanks,
    Kelli

    Aloha!! :wave2:

    I'm glad you're having a great time! :sunny: I don't have any real questions, but if you happen to be in the gift shops at the Polynesian, can you try and notice if they have any: Mickey & Minnie beanies dressed in Hawaiian outfits? Also, do they have "Polynesian Resort" ceramic coffee mugs? Do they have Polynesian Resort license plate frames?? What do the Polynesian Resort t-shirts look like these days?? Did they put an arcade in the lobby? Or is it still over near the Neverland Club?? Thanks!!! :teeth:
