Mahalo for your very kind words!
I have never had very long of a wait to check-in at the Polynesian Resort, but of course if a whole lot of people arrive just before you then the line will be longer. But I've had very long check-in waits at Caribbean Beach, Port Orleans, and All-Star in the past, but nothing like that ever at the Polynesian Resort.
Most of the time I've gotten a room just like I've requested. If you check in before the maid is finished getting your room ready (or before the previous Guests have checked out of the room), they'll only tell you what building you're assigned to as well as which side of the building and what floor it is on -- but for security they won't give you anything more specific than that (they certainly won't tell you what the room number is).
The couple of times where there were no available rooms that matched my request, they showed me at the check-in desk the map of the resort and what room I had been assigned to. If I didn't like that they then offered two other locations to choose from -- still being very general and not giving the actual room number but saying which building, what side of the building, what kind of view, etc.
One of those times when I wasn't sure which of the choices to take, they even said that a room like I wanted would be available after my first night, if I wanted to move.
