Day 11 – the day we move from the African savannah to Polynesia 

It’s pack up time! Today we move to the Polynesian so we enjoy time on balcony watching the animals…it’s busy out here this morning!

Once packed up we call bell services as the Mouse will transfer all our bags etc to our new resort whilst we head to the parks. Whilst waiting we FaceTime mum and Natty shows her the animals on the savannah.

We take a last walk around resort then drive over to the Poly to check in. We are greeted with leis in true Polynesian style! There are also more magic bands waiting…

Unbelievably our room is ready so we pop over to take a look (it’s beautiful)…

… then jump on the monorail (how convenient is this? Apparently my route directly to the TTC has been likened to a forced march…does he not remember that he’s a soldier?!) to Epcot. We are running s little late so we miss our fastpasses to Test Track, pop in and sample some delicious Beverly in Club Cool then walk over to Canada for lunch at Le Cellier. It’s as brilliant as ever! Gotta love that Cheese Soup, eh?

And the Montreal 75 is a bloody lovely cocktail (Dillon’s Craft Gin #22 with Neige Sparkling Wine blended with Peach Puree and Fresh Lime Juice)…along with the tasty poutine!
We stroll around the world showcase and once back in future world we ride Living with the Land. 

Whilst on the ride I manage to grab Test Track fastpasses so we pop over and design our own car and then pit it through its paces!

After a bit of shopping we decide it’s time to make our way back for some pool time at the beautiful Poly pool. However as we get to the monorail station there’s a huge electrical storm! There’s some seriously close lightening strikes but we are safely under cover…
The Hendry-Blums are already at the Poly, so we collect and fill our magic cups And wait for the storm to pass…there’s some serious rain! We have some fun whilst waiting…our curtains and baby R entertain us…

​That laughs cracks us all up!
We soon realise that the storm won’t end any time soon and that the pool is likely to stay closed for a while, so our friends (after sharing rum based beverages) decide that it’s time to head home. We gussy up for our reservations at ‘Ohana (over in the Ceremonial House). We are checked in and given a pager, which goes off soon enough and we are welcomed like family and taken to our table which has fabulous views of Cinderella’s Castle across the Seven Seas Lagoon! Yay!

We are soon tucking into a delicious meal. We begin with ‘Ohana Pineapple-Coconut Bread…

…followed by Mixed Greens Salad with a Lilikoi dressing (I need that dressing in my life). Next up is Pork Dumplings tossed in Garlic-Ginger Sauce served with Peanut and Sweet-n-Sour Sauces along with Honey-Coriander Chicken Wings served with Peanut and Sweet-n-Sour Sauces. We are then visited by servers bringing skewers of Sweet-n-Sour Chicken prepared over an oak fire, Szechuan Sirloin Steak prepared over an oak fire and Spicy Grilled Peel-n-Eat Shrimp prepared over an oak fire, served on Skewers with Peanut and Sweet-n-Sour Sauces. This is accompanied by noodles, tossed in a Teriyaki Sauce.

I might wash this down with a Lapu Lapu…

It’s soon time for the lights to be dimmed and the music for Happily Ever After, the new Magic Kingdom firework show, to begin!

Flipping brilliant!

Dessert is the ‘Ohana Bread Pudding à la mode with Bananas- Caramel Sauce.

That’s to share by the way!

We decide that we love the Poly as we walk back to our room under flaming tiki lights. It’s amazing!

Good night!
