I was told something different from someone who might not have had their facts totally correct and since then I have changed my opinion since I have found nothing to support that it is an issue but I can totally understand you trying to make sure no one is offended and I will back any decision you make on the issue. I do see why you decided to do it originally.

You do a very good job of making this a friendly place to discuss all things Disney.

Okay, you know more than I do about this, so I have now removed the feature which translates "Poly" into "Polynesian" on the Disney Echo.

I have left in a feature, however, which helps to prevent 'Ohana from being spelled incorrectly (with the apostrophe in the wrong place) in messages!

Thanks for setting the record straight guys! I was starting to feel bad about my username. Thanks also for correcting the 'Ohana misspelling. I'm constantly spelling it incorrectly. Mahalo Rich and Steve!

AKL's concierge always includes Swahili in their greetings and closings.  If you stay there, even not concierge, you'll feel like an expert in no time!

So I guess the trip at AKL will be educational. Hey, maybe the school system I work for can pay for the trip now.  :uhoh:

Asante Sana is from the movie "The Lion King" and was uttered by the character Rafiki, who was a shaman or holy man.
