Tonga Toast is the huge, cinammony, banana-stuffed french toast that they serve at Kona Cafe and Captain Cook's for breakfast. There are photos of it all over these boards -- it's a favorite of many posters!
My DH said both of those sound good so we will have to give them a try! Thanks for that information

(Mr.) InfernoGirl and PolyAddict - looks like my DS and I will be there at the same time as you! If you're half as excited as I am (this is our first stay at the Poly), then you're already VERY excited!

See you on the beach!

Yes, Dole Whips can be a dessert or a snack credit on the DDP. There were times when I'd get it as a dessert and sometimes as a snack.
yipee! Wonderful news! I love the dole whips and good to know I can eat it daily at the Poly. Thanks a bunch

a couple concierge questions

Has anyone ever taken anything like coffee and a sweet roll from concierge and eaten it out at the tables by the quiet pool ? I enjoy having my coffee by the pool in the morning but I don't want to do it if I'm not supposed to. Also is the menu for concierge evening food offerings that is posted on the first page of this thread acurate? I noticed it is from 04/14/2008. Thanks for your help.

When my family and I stayed there we took some foods and drinks back to our room, so there is nothing wrong with taking stuff out of the lounge. As for the menu that's what it was when we stayed in December 2007 and if it has changed I am sure someone would update it.

No fair, I call foul play. LOL. Your are about 5 hrs closer than I am to WDW. Had to google to see where you are. I know the main towns are located but other than that, no clue. Yep us Hoosier are normally nice people but screw us and we will never forget it. LOL Glad it seems everything was ok for you after Katrina. I was stuck in Bolixi MS at the time for military training and they locked us down.

So how do you locate fellow Dis members while on vaco?

good evening friends! I was hoping you could give me a rundown of times it takes on/waiting for the monorail. Specifically, how many minutes from:
the GCH to the GF?
the GCH to the MK?
the TTC to Epcot?
If you're standing at the monorail station and there's no monorail, approx how long before it circles back? Are there usually a lot of people waiting, if so, how much extra time would you add? I have an 8:00am character breakfast booked at both the MK and EPCOT and want to make sure I give myself enough time to get there.
As usual, thanks for your help. You guys are great and I look forward to reading this thread throughout the day. I always feel like I've missed so much by the time I'm able to log on at night after I put DD to bed!

Whew!! Time flies when you are readings all these postings!!! question... I've noticed that some of the Poly rooms have a "balcony" and some have a "fence". Fence meaning there is no room for a patio chair. Is it luck of the draw if you are assigned a balcony or fence room? Or if you book a lagoon view, those have balconies?

I realize 1st floor rooms have the small patio.

There's no way to guarantee it -- it's luck of the draw, but you can request it.
