Exclamation Poly room refurbishment...true?

If so, when is it happening? or did it?

and most importanly...are they finally getting rid of those god-awful bedspreads??

This information can seriously make the difference between choosing the Poly or the Beach Club!

Thanks!!


Wait, also...if we are going at a time of year where the parks close early, which resort would you suggest for a better night-time atmosphere? Poly or Beach Club? We will eat dinner around 8 or so...but will head back to resort for wine or cocktails to end the night. Which one do you like better, we stay up 'til at least midnight (it's Disney, we realize it won't be hopping! )..which would you choose?

Disney has not announced anything official. But, the word is, yes, the POLY will undergo refurb in 2013. The refurb is said to start with the Hawaii (CL) building in January and all the buildings will be done by June.

Based on the photos of the test rooms I have seen, yes, the bedspreads will be gone.

The tikiman pages has some photos and there were some posted on the Poly thread of the new Tonga suites (but the test rooms look very similar).

Thanks, the rooms look great!!

So what's your opinion on the night-time atmoshphere? Pretty good for having a 10pm drink or so? When I was at the Yacht Club, it was like a ghost town at about 10pm and this was in June!! I'm not looking for wild parties, , but a few people to chit chat with would be nice.

Poly always has activity in the evenings....because people come to watch Wishes from the beach there. The lobby is always busy until Ohana closes, because that's where people wait to get in. The bar by Ohana is usually packed. Whether we are staying there or not, we always find it to be lively until about 11pm.
