Certainly they can't have removed them all! OH MY! I've never been there (yet) but that is one meal we're looking forward to! Are the wings good? And are the side unlimietd also or just the meats?

The wings were very very good! I also liked the salad. The noodles and the dumplings were bone dry. I'm not sure if the sides were unlimited, it was just DD and I and we don't eat too much! But now that I'm thinking about it, I remember a table full of men next to us who kept getting more, so yes, they must be unlimited

I think I'm going to req a room in Tokelau (our ressie is GV, here's hoping for an upgrade lol), it seems to be centrally located and we won't have to run the risk of a non balcony room there. Wish me luck!
What a nice thing to do for your niece! The Poly is such a fun and relaxing place to stay -- I hope you have a fantastic time there!

Yay! Live posting from the Poly! Your view is gorgeous -- it's a nice place to hang out when it's raining or you're tired, isn't it? I hope you have a fantastic trip!

I've noticed that the allears menus are not complete. We just ate there in April and we had salad, bread, noddles, veggies, dumplings, wings, and dessert in addition to the skewered meats. I'm sure they're not all off the menu now.

The wings were fantastic! I liked them more than the meats, actually. They wouldn't take off the sides -- they cost less than the skewered meats! The sides and (most importantly) the dessert are unlimited, too. We've actually asked for more salad before (and dessert). The waiter was shocked that we wanted more lettuce, but not at all surprised when we wanted more dessert!

Hi everyone! I just wanted to say hello, and thanks to SeaSpray for starting this great thread, and for all the great Concierge reviews and pics!!!! My FH and I are going to be staying at the Poly garden view concierge for 4 nights in June! 20 DAYS! We are so excited! We're also doing the Chef's Table at Victoria and Albert's and FH is doing the Richard Petty Driving Experience (well it's a surprise he doesn't know yet!). Thanks again and happy planning!

We love room service at the Polynesian and breakfast is wonderful. Tonga Toast is on the menu and is just perfect from room service.

We usually fill out the order form the night before and leave it on the door handle. Breakfast normally arrives at the beginning of the window we've selected and arrives nice and warm. Friendly CMs some of whom have been there for years. Has anyone seen Hank or Barbara lately? Both are great.

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! You made a great choice in the Hawaii building for your honeymoon -- it's so tropical and romantic... and it's really nice to have the lounge available for all those snacks and drinks!

The main thing we received was the upgrade from garden view to magic kingdom view. We also go turn down service each night. We got a card at the Cali Grill. We also got a Magical moment certificate at American Adventure. We also got a phone call from minnie congratulating us on the honeymooon. Other than that we didn't get any free desserts or anything like that. But we weren't expeciting too much.
