    I've not heard about it in relationship to the Poly, but I know that it can be done. It's a popular thing to do from Hawaii. Thongs too. They decorate them and sell them individually and you can send one as a post card.

    I would imagine if it can be done from the Poly, someone will come along soon to confirm it!

    I had one that a friend sent me when she stayed at the Poly and it was awesome. I did have to finally throw it away because it started to smell kind of funky after a couple of years though :(

    I also recv'd one from a friend several years back...the kids went wild over it.

    I've not seen them at the Poly (though it would make sense, I s'pose ) But I do recall seeing them at the Caribbean Beach Resort...

    Me too! I was thinking that it might be a good idea, you wouldn't have to write too much

    You can send them from the Polynesian Resort. Just remember, they're pretty heavy, so shipping won't be inexpensive! Certainly more than a postcard stamp! But they do make pretty terrific gifts! My aunt & uncle sent me one from Hawaii in the early 60s and I had it until the mid-70s. :)

    Keith, Slowhand--I'm so proud of both of you for showing restraint.
