Easter Polynesian Resort character meet and greets 2014

We left the Contemporary Resort and jumped on the monorail again and headed off two stops down the run to the Polynesian.  When we stopped there, a lady asked, “Is this Downtown Disney?”  Umm, not quite.  No monorails to Downtown Disney.  It’s hard enough to find a bus there, so they should consider it.  They would sell more tacos and stuffed Stitch dolls and Vinylmaters or whatever they are called.

We arrived at the Polynesian and began looking for the “Luau Lawn.”  No one at the Polynesian had a clue where that was, so we followed the signs to “Luau Cove,” which sounded close enough.  One guy tried to send us to ‘Ohana for breakfast.  I was willing to go, but he didn’t have a reservation and didn’t want to pay.  How rude!   Continue reading Easter Polynesian Resort character meet and greets 2014

We sat there with no power for a couple of minutes and they re-booted the system.  We thought we were ready to go.  We moved a few feet forward and they reopened the doors and allowed more people to board.  After a few more minutes we finally moved a short distance.  The train would start, then stop, then start…
