    Just got back from a fantastic stay at the Poly. As far as the Torch Lighting Ceremony is concerned: It is held Tuesday thru Saturday at 6PM. It's a very short ceremony but definitely worth checking out. I did find it funny that all of the torches around the resort were lit by 5:30pm at the latest but the Torch Lighting Ceremony was at 6PM!:laughing:

    Thanks for that info, because when my family and I stay at the Polynesian in December this is something we would want to see. Can you please tell me where this takes place? I am sure it's outside, however we don't want to walk around in the wrong place trying to find it.

    The torch lighting ceremony takes place just outside the ground floor, main entrance to the Great Ceremonial House. The large drums you will see on the right of the sidewalk opposite the bell stand are used during the ceremony.

    Be on time becuase the cermemony is brief but worht seeing.
