Hi johnsonet! Yes, we're having a blast. And the Polynesian is just gorgeous as always. The flowers at the entrance always amaze me.

We sadly had to cancel Jiko. I had it scheduled for both last week and this but on both nights business interfered with our plans. But we've dined at CG (twice), Citricos, Artist Point, the Wave, Turf Club, Flying Fish, Cafe d'Antonio...lots of good meals.

We had breakfast at Kona last Wednesday and hope to do so again this week. The press pot can't be had as decaf by the way. I finally asked.

Enjoy the remainder of your visit! Think of us who are sitting at the computer with a sweater and shivering! I can't wait to hear about The Wave--we're thinking of giving it a go in May.

I believe that's "California Grill" (at the Contemporary).

Thanks shyjade I wouldn't have gotten that in a million years I'll have to read up on it since the Contemporary is on the monorail with the Poly...it would be easy to get to.

It contains 4 pages of abbreviations.
Who knew there could be so many?

I love the California Grill. I have dined there a number of times. The views are breathtaking (especially at night and during Wishes) There was an outside walkway (top of bldg) that was awesome. It might not still be there since construction of the new addition. I hope they haven't eliminated it. The food is excellent with an upscale menu.
And, while the dining area is very inviting with large windows, there is also a counter area where the chefs cook on open grills. The chefs have been known to share samples of their creations with guests sitting at the counter.

Thanks for the info on CG! We are dining there for the first time in January for my DH's birthday...snagged a ressie so we can watch the fireworks! I am so looking forward to it. This trip will be our first "no kids allowed" trip in 13 yrs. It will definately be different. (I mean that in a good way!!)

HI what time would you book a ressie at CG if you wanted to see wishes???

I just got back from our first trip without the kids. We celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary. We stayed at GF and it was great.

Well, once you got past the first 24 hours of guilt and worry

Have a wonderful time Stephanie, dont worry about the kids, THEY WILL BE FINE.....

That was my Mantra

Thanks Lilmattie13, I sure am going to try and not worry too much...I'm thinking after a day or so of freedom, I may not wanna go home! Just kidding!

The night we are going to CG, Wishes starts at 8pm and we have a 715 ressie. The CM that made the ressie was very helpful in getting us there at the right time since it is DH's actual birthday!

Oh, and Happy Anniversary...glad you had such a wonderful time!!
