It WAS great! That was our first night, and we had a 6:20 ADR at Kona, so the timing was perfect. The kids loved it!! I never did get a LGMH, and I'll admit...I forgot to be on the lookout too!!

Hi everyone! I just noticed on Tikiman's site that they have eliminated the CL menu postings for the evenings. I am saddened by this because it is our first time and a surprise for my parents. I was planning our dining out at our favorite ressies by their nightly menu. There are particular things I really want to be be there for to try. Anyone have a thought as to why they decided to not have it??

Regardless I am soooo excited to be going in October!

Love the pics of the GV. That is what we have booked for. I can understand why you would want to switch with the tree. I would want to see the rest of the beautiful grounds from my sliders as well.

I don't know why the menu was eliminated, but I will let you know that the Poly had changed some of the offerings, so it was similar to what Tikiman had posted, but not as good (IMO). Like, instead of the Kona macadamia chicken breast, they had wings from the Luau. And instead of the Kona salad (which sounded great) there was just a plain one. Maybe Tikiman realized that things had changed and didn't want to have the old stuff up. Just a guess, though.

Apparently they are still serving the same offerings, just not on set evenings like they used to and maybe a new offering here and there. That is probably why Steve took it down. No one really knows what will be served on what evenings anymore.

This will be my 3rd trip to the Poly and I have never done or seen the torch lighting. Can you tell me about it? Thank you!

I thought it would just be a quick blow of a conch shell and someone lighting a torch! Well, I was wrong, and so glad that we took the time to watch it one night. It started in the lobby with a blowing of a conch shell, but then we went out to the front, and the performer (from the luau, I think) did a whole fire dance with the flaming torch, spun it around, and did a few other tricks. It was a really fun mini-show! Definitely worth checking out -- I highly recommend it!

Thank you! I will make my dining plans around it one night to see it!

Yes, there is no longer a set menu in the lounge. This really stinks for our family because we always made our ADR's around the nights that we did not like the offerings in the lounge. Particularly the sushi on Mondays...yuk!

No wireless. Wired internet is an additional charge of 10-15 per 24 hours I believe.

So, my laundry is done, my house is spotless I am ready to go

Too bad I have to wait until September.

Have a great trip to those of you getting ready to go and welcome back to returning Poly lovers.

I am looking forward to trip reports.

BreezysMom, just have to say that you made me laugh... "laundry is done, my house is spotless, I am ready to go. Too bad I have to wait until September." At least you get to go back to the Poly sooner than me. I have to wait til late Nov!
