(I apologize in advance that I am NOT the best video-taker...oops)!

Thanks for posting that video - the torch lighting looks so cool! I didn't even know there was a torch lighting ceremony, but now we will definitely try to check it out!

Thanks,
Jen

Lucky you!

There will be a cable in the closet to connect. Just plug it into the HSIA spot on the desk top.

Have a wonderful trip and

Aloha!

I agree that it is really special. We watched in on our last night at the Poly and it was a really nice little show. It really is a not-to-be-missed "touch" that makes the Poly such a special place.

Goooood morning! I'm currently standing at lobby concierge getting our tickets for the Luau tonight! Were hoping it doesn't get rained out. Our room is 3406 in Tuvalu like we requested and let me tell you, the second I opened that door and saw the castle I nearly cried. I was choked up it was the most magical view I ever could have asked for. I didn't bring my laptop so you guys will have to wait a few days to see but I can't even believe how amazing it is. Check in was wuick and easy and we ordered room service breakfast it was so simple and they were right on time. I've been told have a magical day at least 20 times since arrival and its wonderful! The weather is kinda weird, its muggy but not oppressive. Its warm with occasional 5 min showers and overcast but perfect weather for the parks its nice enough for shorts and a tank top but not so hot you don't wanna move

Ill update later tonight after the Luau on our way to Epcot for EMH
