Official Poly construction update thread **updated video pg 104***
 
With the impending construction planned for the Poly I wanted to have one place where we can see plans, dates, photos pertaining to the construction. I know there is a Poly thread but I thought this would warrent its own thread.
So far I have seen that the plan is for

2 new buildings that will be dvc
current Tahiti will become dvc
20 new bungalows out over the water by the tahiti building
redo of GCH

rumored to start end of this year 2013 with no estimated completion date yet.

Has anyone seen more info than this? Is this correct?
How does everyone feel about booking at the Poly during the next few years during construction?

Well I have nothing to add, anyone else hear anything?:confused3 I am most interested in hearing the time frame for specific construction, ie; the pool will be down for dates ......, that type of info. depending on what is going on during our planned trip we might switch resorts for this next trip.

I have nothing to contribute, sorry! But, I will happily follow the thread as it is between Poly and CR for next years trip, and the only thing stopping me from Poly is the threat of construction. :worried:

Poly Construction
 
That's all I've heard as well. I'd like to know which phases they are doing when. We're planning to go to Disney again in Feb and we love the Polynesian, but will probably avoid it if they are doing construction anywhere around Tahiti.

You sound just like me. I really want to stay at the Poly but I'm pretty sure we will end up at CR. I'm just waiting to see when Disney officially announces what they are going to do.

I just booked a client for mid November and was told that there will be construction. CM has no specific info other than to say some buildings will be under refurb.

Us too. Right now in between cr and gf as back up.

I'm in the same boat for November. I'm worried about the pool being closed. I know that some have said not until Jan, but with 2 kids that would be a pain! I'm starting to lean towards BC (stayed there in August) but we'll see!

I'd be interested to hear any updates as well. We're planning a trip for January and right now we're leaning toward WL, but I'm considering Poly as an option as well. I wouldn't mind so much if some longhouses we're going through refurb, but I would be annoyed by full blown construction going on at the resort. Also, we don't plan to use the pool in January, but I don't want to walk by a "construction zone" every time we pass the pool area. Last year, we visited Yellowstone and the lodge we were staying at was undergoing construction on the main building and parking lot. It really took away from the ambience of the resort and we were wishing we had stayed somewhere else. DH and I swore after that trip we'd never stay anywhere that was undergoing construction again! I guess if we don't have more specific information in the near future about what is happening when, then we'll stick with WL.

Hmmm, why so vague? It is not fair to customers not to disclose what will be happening.

We are planning on staying at the Poly in June 2014. I'm now worried that we will be having construction while we are there :-/ any chance they might be done by then? Or is that wishful thinking on my part?

Mrs D I did not mean to imply that you were vague, I meant Disney;)

Thats the million dollar question. All that is known now is unofficial. Check out tikimans web page for the full rumor info. I am planning to have a back up resort just in case....:confused3

Following along.

Definitely subscribing to this thread. The construction schedule will determine whether I stay here next Spring. I REALLY wanted to splurge and try Poly CL, but no way will I spend all that money if the Lobby and/or Pool is under construction. I really wish Disney would be more forthcoming as to their construction dates.
