    Great show and this just makes me want to stay at the Polynesian. Odd question – did they add parking for the extra guests in the new rooms?

    And what happened to the gift shops? Still there, enhanced, scaled back or something else?

    Finally, the best coffe at Disney is here. A pot of the Kona coffee just gets the day started right. It is worth a trip here just for that – no kidding, it is that good.

    Now I am waiting for the Trader Sam’s show!

    Are children allowed in the new area? We are coming down in June and would love to go and have appetizers before watching the eletrical parade.

    Love the podcast.

    Who was the guest in this episode?

    Thus far, all we have ever experienced at the Polynesian Village is Captain Cooks and the shop downstairs. It sounds like Trader Sam’s would be a place we would really enjoy. The Bungalows were actually being built, last time we were down as well as the pool area? I could see having a “lost weekend” in the bungalows. Now, if I could only find a rich friend? LOL! Those specialty drinks with the collectible glasses really sound sweet!

    Thanks again for another fantastic show, Lou and Suzanna!!!
