    I imagine this has been asked over and over again, but is there a expresso machine in the Club Level lounge?

    Has anyone ever done the fishing trips (on the lagoon)... with their kids? Is it expensive? DH would love to take DS (7) on our upcoming November trip.

    Can you use your CS credits to eat at Captain Cooks? Also can you easily take stuff back to your room, meaning do you get a bag or tray to carry it? We're not big on CS meals in the parks, so we thought this might be a good alternative.

    Lastly, which building houses the laundry facilities at the Poly?

    Yes you can use your CS credits at Captin Cook's and yes you can take food back to your room. As for how you take it back I once saw someone trying to carry it on a tray, however she must have had a lot of items and dropped her food.

    I haven't tried this, but there was a great, detailed report about this on one of the DIS podcasts a while back. If you look through the Podcast lists, you may be able to find it -- it's worth listening to -- they really, really liked it and the report had alot of information in it. Hope this helps...:)

    My DH took our sons on a fishing excursion from the Polynesian once many years ago. They had so much fun they did it again a few years later with our DD. It was an option in our package but I do know it is expensive...don't know current prices though.

    You can ask for a bag to take food back to your room from CC...or to the beach or pool for that matter. They do have trays too but I wouldn't want to walk all the way back to CC to return the tray.

    The laundry room is located in a separate building near the bus stop. The Neverland Club is in the same building as is Tangaroa Terrace which is used for private functions.

    I am so jealous of everyone who is leaving so soon for their trip. I hope everyone has a great time and will share their experience with the rest of us who have to wait.

    Hi there.
    I used online checkin in late March but had not made any requests. I loved the service and will use it again. From what I've read, using online check-in should not effect your room requests. Make your room requests through Reservations. There is no space for custom requests during the online process. Good luck!
    Yes, there is a separate check-in line. In fact, when we arrived there were 2 CMs waiting to help online check-in guests.

    A little tip for this is that we would tend to get a few meals from CC during our stay and while they do give you a nice handle bag to carry your food, I brought from home the reusable bags that they have for grocery stores now and used that. It was a little easier to handle and of course is being more green :thumbsup2

    No it really doesn't, but it's a good excuse to see POFQ! If you go to POFQ the ferry dock is at the back of the resort behind the Serpent Pool. It's a lovely little resort and you will be amazed at how small it is! If you go to POR the ferry dock is behind the main building at the Marina.

    The boat picks up at POR and then goes to POFQ. So if you get the boat at POFQ you are second to get on, but first to get off. You can also stay on the boat after it drops off at POFQ and go to POR. (Can you tell it's my favorite! :laughing:) The boat docks near Captain Jacks restaurant (And Mickeys $10 and under store) at DTD.

    You can get more information on the ferry at portorleans.org. :goodvibes

    It is a nice thing to do for a "no park" day. It's become a tradition of ours now! Along with Mom (me) trying to make it from one end of the pop-jet fountain near the bus stop without getting wet! (I missed once - I was wearing a dress and it wasn't pretty! :rotfl:)

    I really hope for temps in the 80's that week - I really need some sun and warmth! :beach:

    I can barely wait! It will be so nice to get there and relax. I can't believe in just a few short (but they seem long) days we'll all be there! I tried the online check in too - hope that goes well! I hope we all get our room requests and have great trips down! :goodvibes

    Kaffinito, thanks for the info on getting to DTD. Hopefully we'll have the time to try that out, and check out the new T-Rex for lunch.

    Have you figured out how you're going to surprise your kids?
