Earning My Ears
- Dec 27, 2001
We returned yesterday from our 6/18-6/26 stay at Poly CL. In one word I would describe it as....perfect. When we arrived on the Magical Express bus it was raining. A CM greeted us at the door and I told her we were checking into Hawaii. Because it was raining, she escorted us to Hawaii using some of the other longhouses as our path. We arrived and check in was short and efficient. I had received a text upon landing at the airport that we were in 1519. I realized this would mean we would not be close to the lounge, but it worked out great. We loved the location. It was extremely quiet. We never heard any noise in the hall the entire stay. The only noise was from the guests directly above us. I don't think the ceiling/floors must be very thick because we heard every step they took. One afternoon we were trying to take a short nap and they were either jumping off the beds or falling off, but it literally shook our room. Luckily the noise was not frequent and did not last long. We love being on the ground floor, love having the patio when staying at a Disney property. The only reason I mention the noise from upstairs is, I would probably request a 3rd floor room next time. Just wanted others to be aware. Every CM we encountered was wonderful. Always greeted with an "Aloha" by everyone. The CMs in the lounge were so sweet and did a fabulous job! I took a 40oz hydro flask to the parks everyday and when I entered the lounge with it, one would immediately ask if they could put ice and water in it for me. There was always food available and replenished as needed. We used the lounge mostly for breakfast and were so happy to see hard boiled eggs. We did have the evening appetizers many nights and were happy with the selection and quality. The beer and wine were self serve. We were there for desserts one night and noticed they put the wine out with the cordials. There were almost always seats available in the lounge. The only time it was crowded, we went up to the third level seating area and were the only ones up there. All the other guests were kind and the children were delightful. Mousekeeping was great!! We had turn down service every night. It was a wonderful week and our family of 5 loved everything about the Polynesian!!
