Nope, no pin code. I keep checking the website several times a day and the Poly is completely sold out the days we are going to be there so I think they are just full....anyway I am just happy to be at the Poly again and I will ask at check-in.

So now for the second time I caught him browsing the net, the first time checking out tiki's site and then just now he was on the DIS.

I knew something was up because he was asking me questions about stuff like bouncebacks and park hours. He has never cared before. He loves Disney but I was the offical planner. His research consisted of the park maps located in the lobby upon arrival.

Then today a box came from Eddie Bauer so I called him at work to tell him and his response "Oh, that is my new backpack for Disney".

He is a total closet Disney planner. He just has not come out to me yet.

If you are reading this "Hi honey, welcome to the DIS"
This is just too cute!

I think my DH will do the same thing....but probably not until 2 days or so before the trip....I can hear him now, "Honey, did you think of this? Baby, what about that?" My response will be to show him my multiple Excel spreadsheets of itineraries and plans and Word documents of "tips I've read on the Dis" all filed nicely in my Disney notebook with tabs clearly labeled. LOL

I think there is something wrong with the WDW website (big shocker!) I put in my dates 5/7-5/17 and nothing came up, not one resort was available. So I tried the room only spring promo and there are rooms available in every category at the Poly and everywhere else! I like to check and see if theme park view is avail. in case we decide to upgrade when we get there.....or maybe a free upgrade for our anniversary

Question Niue or Samoa?

Have you stayed in Niue, and would you again?

We are considering requesting Niue East (garden view). We know it doesn't have balconies, and is only 2 floors, but it doesn't have any parking lot view potential, it's close to the GCH, and it seems to be a quiet area. Our other contender is Samoa East which we have stayed in before.

TIA for your opinion.

I have not stayed in Niue, but we've had Samoa twice - and it's our Fave!

Niue seems Ok, especially since smoking is no longer allowed, but I do wonder about the potential noise and traffic on the first floor.......When we stay in Samoa, we ALWAYS walk through Niue to and from the GCH. Of course, my family is considerate and quiet when we do so, but I wouldn't necessarily depend on all other guests to be so kind.

Ewwwwww.... was Niue once a smoking longhouse? If so, I would NOT choose to stay in it. That would make choosing Samoa easy!

Question Tokelau or Samoa?

Have you stayed in both? Which do you prefer: Tokelau (east or west) or Samoa (west-quiet pool).

TIA.

OMG - thank goodness that someone else does this (and from the thread, it seems that another person does this as well!) I started to wonder if I was a little, um, off my rocker

I've got all my 'Mouse Tips' ready to go - up to 68 pages worth - just some light reading for me as I go through the parks
