Our last day in Walt Disney World. And another day with no theme park plans. However, I had set up a tour of the Polynesian DVC rooms while in Epcot on Wednesday. I approached the DVC kiosks and spoke with the guide. He set up the tour for me, as a member, and even had set up for us to be picked up at BoardWalk.
Well, two of my friends planned on coming out to visit me on Friday. So, on Thursday I called the DVC number to see if I could add them to the tour. No problem I was told as the Cast Member added their information to the roster.
My friends arrive at the BoardWalk after going food shopping. They planned on cooking us dinner in the room instead of going out to eat. We gladly accepted. My friends had the bell hops help bring the food and the pots/pans up to the room. We knew we were going to get one heck of a well cooked and delicious meal.
Well, the time came to meet the DVC van in front of the BoardWalk. We got into the vehicle, and our driver took us over to the Polynesian. We met with one of the DVC representatives who took us inside to meet with the tour guide. Here is where the confusion comes into play. The Cast Member I spoke with on Thursday mistook my adding of my friends as we were booking the tour for them, and she changed everything to the complete tour for new, potential DVC buyers. I explained that wasn’t the case. I booked solely as a member to see the Polynesian rooms, but added my friends on since they were coming to visit. I didn’t want to leave them alone, and figured they would love to see the rooms too, while spending time with us. The guide had to call his manager, who then seemed to get annoyed with my friends as they explained they were not interested in the full tour, and they were only accompanying me as I viewed the Poly rooms. We finally got things cleared up after much confusion.
The guide took us to the studios first. I fell in love. The rooms are unreal. What did me in was seeing the bungalows. Stunning. I wish I had the cash to buy into Polynesian. I’d love to stay in the bungalows. But I do not have enough points. I can stay in the studio though. And with my point totals, I can do two weeks. I’m thinking about it for 2016.
We left Poly and the DVC was drove us back to BoardWalk. There, we went over to the pool for a while. I didn’t go in the water. My friends did though. I just sat on the lounge chair. After they had their fill of swimming, we went back to the room for dinner.
My friend cooked a chicken and pasta dish she found on Pintrest. And it was great. So good, in fact, I had two helpings. And then dessert, apple pie and coffee. We sat on the balcony having dinner and dessert. Put my Illuminations CD into the DVD player so we could have some mood music in the back ground while we ate. And as night fell, we managed to once again catch the fireworks show from DHS.
We had a great last night in Walt Disney World with my friends visiting. We said we would meet up again when I visit in December. After they left, my other friend and I packed our stuff knowing we were leaving the next morning for our journey home.
