We got a Minolta digital camera and love it. I was reading through Islands Magazine and our camera was one of the couple they recommended getting.

Do you mind if I use one or two of your photos when I update my pages?

Steve, If you find anything you like, by all means feel free to use. I've been lazy in getting some stills off the camcorder (just like I've been lazy writing my report! ). I should have plenty of Poly pics coming and when I place them online, I'll send you a link.

It's funny because my wife spent this weekend creating our photo album - She was so upset because, as always happens, you get home and realize you didn't take any pictures on certain days - too many pictures on others. I've got an hour of film on MGM, yet we took zero still pictures there. Does anyone know if Disney still sells VHS (or better yet, DVD) souvenir films? I took a half-hearted effort to find one, but didn't see anything.

THey had both DVD and VHS last time we went. We picked up a DVD and it was ok. Not much more that the stuff you see on the vacation videos. I like watching our own film more than the poorly done WDW videos. You would think they could do a better job with all the money they spend on marketing. I also am surprised they do not show their resorts better.

Hi Poly lovers,
I've never posted here before but I read the discussions sometimes. I've been sick recently (flu going around) and so am reading some older posts. Just wanted to ditto "Cyril's" (I think that's who it was) endorsement of Tikiman Steve's web site. It's awesome. I especially love the history parts and the detailed info about the resort that's useful for planning. I stayed at the Polynesian only 2 times, once when I was about 12 and again a few years ago. I would love to go back. If I do go back, I will definitely use the Polynesian site, and in the meantime I just fantasize! The reason I may not go very soon is severalfold: 1. money 2. money again 3. we have a 3-month-old and I'd like to wait til he's about 3 YRS old 4. my husband doesn't like rides (scaredy cat) and isn't big on WDW (never went when he was a kid, not the same sort of attachment and memories with the place, I guess, plus he dislikes much of its commercial nature). But he would go for me and little Theo I'm sure. I've been thinking (fantasizing) recently about splitting our trip next time between the BCVillas and the Poly. Here's the thing. We're vegetarians. My husband's vegan. It's getting a lot better down there at WDW for us veggie types, but still expensive to eat every meal out and still not the best. When we went down back in Jan. of '01 it was better than the last time I'd been there about a year before, and it seems that it's a lot better even now, but not ideal. Plus with a little kid, I thought the proximity of these locations and the kitchen facilities of the BCV would be a good thing for at least half the trip. I wih there were Poly Villas! That would be awesome. But alas. Any thoughts anyone? Yep, it's far in the future, say 2006, but I can dream in the meantime and through the toddler years...

Yoo Hoo, Julie!

We stayed in a Fort Wilderness cabin for the first time this year and you might want to look into that. It has a full kitchen, perhaps even better stocked than the kitchens in the Villas from what I've been reading (but I have no personal experience in the Villas). Being in Fort Wilderness might also appeal more to your husband because it seems truly out in the woods and not like other WDW resorts at all.

There are some suites at the Polynesian Resort which include kitchens, even though they aren't vacation club villas. The price might be too steep for you, however.

The regular rooms in the Polynesian are large enough if you'd like to bring in an ice chest (and stock it with ice from the machine each day). Some people even buy inexpensive small refrigerators (dorm size) at the nearby discount stores and bring them in their resort rooms themselves. Or you can pay Disney $10 a day and they'll supply a small refrigerator to your room. When you stay concierge at the Polynesian, there is a small refrigerator included in your room at no extra charge. Perhaps you could bring in a microwave to cook some meals?

I'm sorry you've been sick, Julie, but well enough to join the Disney Echo.
:)

Since you've fallen under the bewitching spell of the Polynesian Resort, I've picked out these Disney EchoEars for you:


Welcome to the Disney Echo!
