My sister bought me Facing Future by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole years ago. It's just gorgeous music.

I have the music loops from the Poly, but my file hosting site is down for repairs. I will see if I can find a different one when I get home.

First of all,returning you to shore was never part of our agreement. Second, you are not a pirate, so the Pirate's Code does not apply. And third, the Pirate's Code is more of a set of what you'd call 'guidelines' than actual rules. Welcome aboard the Black Pearl.

Does anyone know how long it take to get from the Poly to the WL using Disney transportation? We have ADR for Mickey's backyard BBQ our first night.

I am thinking it might be best to go to MK and take a boat to WL if that is possible. But if there is a faster way I would love to hear it.

Thanks

Going to the MK and getting the boat launch to Fort Wilderness Campground will be your best bet for getting to Mickeys Backyard BBQ.

As for the water play area, it's basically a little round concrete area with some water spouts that make water shoot out from the ground. Judging by all the little kids playing there, it's quite popular, but less crowded than the volcano pool. It's tucked away behind some shrubs, but it's kind of between the volcano pool, the Hawaii building, and the beach.

Hope this helps!
Is the concrete slippery when it gets wet?? I'm just curious if I should be packing water slippers for my little guy. My DS would LOVE this and I'd feel better. My mil doesn't swim and ds LOVES the water so this would be a good distraction for him. We were hoping to do some thrill rides one or two afternoons while they relax at the resort.

I would bring water slippers, the concrete although not smooth can be slippery. I saw a child at DTD take a pretty good spill at the one there.

Definitely bring water shoes -- it did look slippery!

Great pic's Ronald Duck. OK, I am a planner and we (DH and I) finally decided to give in and try the Poly in 2011. 2010 is already set as we are at the CR/BC. This will be a surprise for our DS13 who has always wanted (ever since he was 2) to stay at the Poly. The Poly really didn't appeal to us but after reading this thread and getting quite a bit of information, we caved in. Ok, now I just have to keep my mouth shut for 655 days.

Gorgeous pics indeed! Everything looks so lush, tropical and relaxing.

I wasn't in love with the Poly but DH really wanted to stay there & my two boys wanted BC/SAB, sooooooo... we are getting the best of both with a split stay!!! The Poly seems like the perfect way to "end" our vacation.

IMHO you couldn't do any better than BC/SAB the first half of your trip and the Poly the second half
