|Think you could add those videos to your website? |

|I wish I could. Firts of all they were shot with a new HI-8 camera and not a digital. Second It would take forever to download. I use to make copies of the tapes to send out but it got too expensive to do for free. I think I have videoed every inch of the Polynesian.|

So, if that's the case, how much you want for a copy?
You KNOW some of us are willing to pay, you could even use the proceeds to help pay for your webspace....

|Well I was talking to my wife about it and it would be nice if I had a double VCR to make them or even a VCR to DVD. I may get another VCR to make copies but I have not to this point. I was not planning on doing it to make money. I think once I just charged the cost of the tape and shipping which was about $10 but most of the tapes I sent for free.|

|The Polynesian is without a doubt the best hotel for transportation. Even if it take a little longer to get to Epcot from the Epcot hotels, the trip is more enjoyable and in the morning you are brought to the open part of the park.|

|This is great info. One of the factors in our choosing the Polynesian was its proximity to the TTC, especially since we spend a lot of our time at EPCOT. Now that you've documented it, I'm even happier about our decision. I had no idea until recently that the Polynesian was this accessible from the TTC.|

|I'd gladly send you 10 bucks for a cool "tour of the Poly" videotape |
( my 4 yr old daughter picked the Mickeys to use)

|My wife and I found the walk to and from the TTC to be one of the most romantic things we enjoyed about the Polynesian. Even at our ages (50s) we did not find the walk to be excessively long nor tiring. The beauty of the gardens and grounds offsets the distance. We found the short stroll to the TTC to be the fastest way to get to the Epcot monorail. The monorail along the inside, local track stops often and these stops can devour precious minutes of the clock if timing matters to you. Even after taking the resort monorail to the TTC, you still have to get off and get back in line for the Epcot monorail. |
Guests should realize that the monorail along the inside, local track often must halt for several minutes even before reaching the next station. Delays caused by loading or unloading guests with limited mobility or any other "snags" can keep a monorail train at a station longer than usual and if the delay is long enough, it can paralyze every train on the track. Monorail cast members will at times hold up the departure of a train if they see a group of guests running up the ramp at the last moment. This is a hard call to make at times when the train is not full and there is a light steady flow of guest toward the gate. This was seen most often at the MK station and the Contemporary. That is why it is good to have the option to avoid riding the monorail to the TTC from the MK resorts.
