I just downloaded the Poly music loop and it's so beautiful! Brings me right back. I'll be playing this in the middle of January when my thermometer is hitting negative 30 and there is 8 feet of snow outside! Aaaaah. Thank you Capt. B!!!

I will upload more stuff as time goes on. Park loops and resorts.
Thanks, that's awesome - it makes me feel like I'm back at the Poly!

I put it on my iPod - as well as the Main Street USA loop.

My DS stills loves the CR Atrium Club the best, but I think I left my heart last week at our Poly LV Club Room! Or more specifically should I say on the beach while watching the Wishes & Hallowishes Fireworks!

Do you have to call and request it daily or can you put in a request at the beginning of your stay and it lasts the whole time?

We just ask for it at the beginning of our stay. We would sometimes get it, and sometimes not. While I really like it, not having it was not a deal-breaker for us, so I didn't worry about it if they didn't have the time to come and turn down the room.

WOW, we are almost at our 250 page max again! The Poly FAQ thread rocks!
I am sure Sea Spray or Canadian Guy will set us up

How exciting for all of you going soon We are so busy here in our house that it seems like everytime I think to look at our countdown it is like a week later!

I posted some great Poly pics on my PTR for our last trip. In all honesty, DH and I are toying with possibly going for the holidays in 2010, but I want to get through this trip first.... We would probably stay at the GF or BC but I am still of the mindset that I can't stray from the Poly yet. We will see when I stay CL at the Poly if that cements the plans!

Today we have our last big family outing of the summer. Six Flags Great America. Everytime I go there, our thrid trip this summer, it makes me appreciate Disney all the more

Aloha to all those going
and coming back !

Happy Sunday

I am checking in this Friday for our FIRST stay at the Poly. I requested a room in Tokelau or to be closer to the TTC side (I hope that was a good request).

I have a room only reservation due to the fact that my father is on the reservation, but does not need park tickets. I do need to purchase tickets for myself and one child. Can I do that at the resort concierge desk or do I have to walk over to the TTC to do it?

Shopping at the Poly

Anyone been to the Poly recently? Just wondering what's in the gift shops... Looking for hawaiian style shirts, dresses, anything else interesting. I found some Mickey Mouse hawaiian shirts on disney store and ebay but heard they don't have hawaiian style shirts at the Poly stores with Mickey or other Disney character designs on them....

I think Tokelau is great, especially if you want to be close to the TTC and the quiet pool. You can purchase your tickets at the GCH.

Welcome! The Poly is a fun place to stay!

The pool is well-lit at night. Make sure you go under the water and listen!

Other tips -- take the time to enjoy the Poly. Watch Wishes and the EWP from the beach area by the volcano pool. Catch the torch lighting ceremony in the GCH at least one time on your trip -- it's free, not a big time commitment, and lots of fun!
