:)  Aloha everyone.......just back from Disney's awesome Polynesian Resort.  This was our first stay (mimi, papa, 4 children & 4 grandchildren).  I faxed in a room request for Tokelau, 3 adjoining, nonsmoking, ground floor rooms and when we arrived was told they were not using Tokelau since it was so slow this week (Sept. 7-13).  They assigned us Fiji, first floor, rooms 1304,1305,1306 facing the spirit of alohoa cove.  Let me tell you these rooms were perfect!!  The view of the beach was great and it really wasn't a long walk to anything at the resort.  I know the map makes it look farther, but we really all agreed we loved Fiji. (Thank you Rich and Tikiman for reviews.)  We did hear the drums a couple nights from the Spirit of Aloha show for about 10 minutes but never interrupted anyone's sleep.
Mousekeeping was great; we requested turn-down service and had the best service.  The children's animals were arranged cleverly and lots of chocolates left by our pillows.  I did ask (and gave a nice tip) to our girl to do towel animals and she went above and beyond and made dogs, alligators and little dolls.  (again, lots more chocolates  :wink2: )
We sat on the beach for the fireworks Monday night, close to a speaker and heard all the music....magical!!  Wednesday night sat again on the beach farther down, better view, but couldn't hear the music.  Each night we watched the electrical water parade and the best spot was on the marina dock.
We all loved the volcano pool, especially the zero entry for the little ones.  The adult kids loved the slide and Disneymimi loved the lava flows (drinks) sitting near the pool and Disney Papa enjoyed the hammocks nearby.  
It was a perfect week, no rain whatsoever and really low attendance.  I was afraid the FairyTale package was going to make everything so crowded, but that wasn't the case.  Our longest wait for any ride, any park was 10 minutes for Alien Encounter.
We were able to walk right in for a table at the California Grill Thursday night which really surprised me.  The food was "to die for".
Eight of us went to Cinderella's Royal Table for breakfast and had an awesome time.  This food was great also.  The kids gobbled up the french toast sticks and bacon!
Ten of us at 'Ohana's Sunday night......not very crowded and the grandkids were gifted (heehee) at the coconut races.
I want to thank Tikiman and Rich for this site.  I studied hard and used everyone's input........making this trip just as magical as I dreamed.
If anyone has any questions, I would be happy to answer if at all possible.  
I am now permanently called Disneymimi by my family!

Lisa, I just want to add you will have a marvelous time at 'Ohanas for your birthday.  Our son was celebrating his birthday that evening and they did something special for him.  So be sure and tell them it is your birthday celebration.  The food was wonderful and atmosphere so much fun.  Our daughter and son-in-law ate there again three nights later!!
Yummy. :)
Have a wonderful trip.
Disneymimi :hula:

Disneymimi,
Sound like you had a great trip! We'll be leaving for the Polynesian in two weeks. What things did your grandkids like best about the Polynesian? We'll have DS9, DD6, and DS1 with us, as well as my parents.

So glad you had such a great time! I know my trip is forever away (First week of Feb.)  :sniffle:  but I keep coming to check on people's experiences and I can't wait to go.

Thanks to the great Disney site here, I at least have something to occupy my mind with ~dreamily~ til then.

Disneymimi,

Oh, I can't wait to get there for my birthday!  Usually we don't do anything for my birthday so I am pretty excited about this.  

So...when are you going back? :wink2:

Aloha again,
LaurenS......my grandkids (5,3,3 and 7 mos) absolutely loved the beach and volcano pool.  We did the water mice (boats) with them and that was a big hit too.  Walking through the GCH was always fun and they loved saying aloha to everyone.
We stayed ground floor at Fiji and they got a big charge out of feeding the ducks one morning.  We checked out the Neverland Club, but they didn't stay since they all weren't four years old yet.

Our trip was just the best and worth every penny.  Lisa, sure wish I knew when we were going back.  Since we treated everyone, I'm not sure when we'll have big bucks again.  But rest assured, we ALL want to go again.

You all have a great trip and I know you will absolutely love the Polynesian.  When we arrived at registration they said "welcome home" and we really did feel at home.

Aloha,
Disneymimi
:hula:
