Poly help

Is there a lot of work going on at the Polynesian right now? I am looking to stay there first week of November. I don't want to spend that kind of money if there is a lot of construction. Thanks!

I think you should be fine. The only thing going on right now is the room refurbs but they close off the building they are working on inside so you shouldn't notice that.

Other than that, rumor is that DVC construction will begin at end of 2013, so that will have an impact if it happens, but it sounds like November might be a sweet spot where there will be nothing going on.

I want to stay at Poly in April 2014, but am considering the GF as I don't want to stay where construction is going on.

That's great. Thank you! We have never stayed there and really want to this time.

Last rumor was they were going to put the dvc next to the luau and that is the very back end of the Poly property. Should have nearly no effect on the Poly. I would not worry about it.

theres a big constuction project going on right now inbetween the poly and GF, but they have cracked on with it, there is a note on a quote i have from a travel agent that there may be pool closures due to the work going on with it being so close to the courtyard pool!

How much does it cost per night to stay at the poly? Is it really worth all that money?

For 2013, rack rate Poly rooms range from $422/night to $858/night depending on view and dates (excluding club level and suites, which are more).

"Worth" is entirely subjective.

I think OP has already decided that its "worth it", so lets actually address her question, shall we?

If anything is being said about pool closures that's usually a red flag to me. Sometimes, NOT ALWAYS, it has to do with resort construction.

I think "we" (excluding me) already answered the question. No one knows. Rumors and speculation only at this point.

I was referring to the poster who, unprompted, gave their two cents about how to properly spend money in WDW.

I can't stand all this "worth" stuff. Today I was talking Disney with a few friends/acquaintances and I was asked where we were staying. When I said the Polynesian one guy was like " well la de dah...wow" he kept going on as if I was some sort of snob or something. Dh and I work very hard and if we choose to spend our money at Disney/Poly than who cares. With 3 dd's it can't be beat...monorail to 2 parks, wishes on the beach, dole whips lol! People will judge you no matter where you stay, to each his own. Worth is different to everyone. 75 days until am there
