    The monorail is fantastic transportation!

    I think the Poly is gorgeous and would love to stay there!

    This is a treat for us. One of my daughters graduated college and my other daughter got accepted into medical school. Thank you for your reply.

    sounds like you're going to have a blast. There are some great places to eat at the Polynesian, Ohana, Kona Cafe and the counter service - Captain Cooks i believe. All our quite good

    Yes, congratulations on the accomplishments! Let the CMs know of the celebration and they may make a fuss. You should get a button or something to wear to the parks.

    The Poly was a great place to stay. Stayed there when my now 21 year old daughter was 10. She loved the pool. It had music underwater. I think it has been spruced up in recent years and I love to go to Ohana's for a good meal.

    You will have a great time at the Poly, Kona Cafe is really nice and they have a sushi available there now as well if you like it.

    The monorail is excellent for getting to the Magic Kingdom and you are only a 10 minute walk from the Grand Floridian and about 5 minutes to the Ticket and Transporation Center where you can get the monorail to Epcot.

    You have to try Tonga Toast at Kona or Captain Cooks, it is delicious :D

    Tonga Toast, well it's bread and banana and if your daughters have a sweet tooth they will love it, I would get one to share though.

    You can see a video on how to make it at home here it will also show you what it looks like :D

    Ohana for both breakfast and dinner, dinner is delicious!

    Kona cafe is a wonderful place for breakfast and its usually not as crowded as Ohana, do ADR in advance!

    The Polynesian is my favorite resort on property by far. I have stayed here many times over the years. You don't even feel like your at Disney and it's a great retreat from the parks. Captain Cook's counter service is open 24 hours for those of you that may get the midnight munchies. Also try and see the Luau show. It's a great dinner show and the food is very good.

    Congratulations! The Polynesian is awesome! My family stayed in Feb 2012 and are booked again for Feb 2013. If you are on the Disney Dining Plan go to Capt Cooks and get your free refillable mug as soon as you arrive. The mug is free and can be refilled with drinks for free at Capt Cooks, or any resort quick service restaurant. Great for coffee or tea in the morning, or juice and soda anytime. If you are not on the Disney Dining Plan I think you can purchase the refillable mug for around $15.

    Getting so exited we get there next Saturday. Just a little worried about the marathon that day. Not sure if we should go to a park that day or just stay at the resort. And help would be appreciated.

    That is correct. Each person on the DDP gets the mug for free. It is refillable for free at the Quick Service restaurant at the resort. You will see the mugs in Capt Cooks. Just grab one for each person on the DDP and take them to the cashier. Present your Key to the World card, and the cashier will cut the security tag off. You are now ready to fill it with your favorite beverage. (Well, favorite soft drink, coffee, tea, etc. Unfortunately it does not work at Tambu Lounge. :thumbsdown:)Instead of using the coffee maker in the room I would take our mugs down to Capt Cooks each morning, fill them with coffee, and take them back to the room. Our kids would take their mugs with them to the pool and anytime they were thirsty they could go into Capt Cooks and get something to drink.
