    Love the panel!!! have booked trip in early June, and staying at Polynesian. I have a three year old who will need to nap midday. Can you recommend a longhouse which is close to things, but not too noisy. Also, are there any character meals with Ariel?

    Hi, Barbara!   During our visit to the Polynesian, we stayed in Rarotonga.  We requested a first floor room that faced the monorail.   This was an ideal room.  It was very quiet, and just steps away from the Great Ceremonial House where there are restaurants and the monorail station.   Although we don't have a stroller anymore, we still like the first floor to avoid steps or elevators after walking all day in the parks!

    While not guaranteed, Ariel does sometimes appear at the Princess Storybook Breakfast at Akershus (Epcot.)   The best place to meet Ariel is at Ariel's Grotto at the Magic Kingdom.  Here you can get wonderful photos and the Little Mermaid's autograph! 

    Wishing you and your family a magical vacation!
