    Hi all!!

    Sorry I have to rush this introduction post, but we still have a few things left to pack before the airport driver picks us up at 6:00am.

    So as you can tell by the title, this is going to be a live trip report, I will post more details later on but all you need to know for now is the details:

    Details, Details, Details...OH MY!
    The When: April 27th to May 6th 2012
    The Where: Disney's Polynesian Resort
    The Who: Myself, my Mom, and my Dad
    The Why: Must there really be a why? I mean it's Disney, I think it explains itself (hehehe).

    So with all said and done, here we GO!!!!!!

    (P.S. I will post more details when we get to the airport!)

    So we made it through the airport checkin, security and screening in 20 minutes. Now we have to wait until 9:45 to board our plane.

    Thank you so much!
    I will for sure let you know when we get there. We requested either Tahiti or Rapa Nui so we will see. Our last couple of trips have not been so successful with room requests but hopefully this time.

    When you walk into the lobby, take a big breath of that most unique aroma that only the Poly has.

    When we were there in December they switched the scent in the Polynesian to a fake one that smelt like really strong flowers. I'm not sure if you are referring to that scent, but prior to that change the scent of the Polynesian was lovely!!!

    Ok so while we are sitting here at the airport I might as well mention a few things.

    First, WELCOME to the trip report!

    1. I am I interested to see how they handle our continuing reservation. When we went to WDW in December we took advantage of the bounce back deal but the deal was only available for the last half of our trip.

    2. There are quite a few things that are closed that we usually like to go on, but no matter. We are going to be at the happiest place on earth!

    We don't board the plane until 9:45am, so we made very good time at the airport but now we have to wait for them to open the doors in order to wait at the terminal/gate.

    if you have any questions I will try my best to answer them!
