    Just booked Polynesian for two nights as a surprise for my family. The rest of the time we are at POP. I would like to have my luggage moved from POP to Polyn without them knowing.How can I go about this?What suggestions do you have for surprising them?


         What a surprise!  As long as you can get your luggage packed without your family knowing, I've gotcha covered!  I would call down the night before and let Bell Services know that you will need assistance bringing your bags out.  Or, if you prefer you can walk your own luggage out to Bell Services near the lobby.  Once your luggage is in their hands, just let them know that you will need it transferred to the Polynesian Resort.  If you have your luggage down to them in the morning, it is usually at the next resort by 3:00 PM.  Of course, tips are GREATLY appreciated!

          As far as surprising them, I have a fun idea!  If you are spending the day in a theme park that is accessible by monorail, let's be sneaky....  Why not suggest to your family that the Moms Panel recommends that no trip is complete without a ride on the monorail?  Once it pulls in to the entrance to the Polynesian, you could comment on how nice it would be to stay there one day and that you would love to hop out and take a look.  Once you walk into the gorgeous lobby, I would excuse myself (to the ladies' room perhaps???) and find the nearest Cast Member.  I would inform them of your plan and ask if the would mind breaking the surprise to your family?  As they present leis to your family, the two of you can spill the beans!!!
