If the refurbishment is underway, I'd want to request a room that is already refurbished.
Check tikiman's site. I had trouble finding the reported schedule at first, but if you click on "longhouses" and go to each longhouse individually, it lists planned rehabs in the stats for each longhouse. So for example, under "Hawaii," it lists "Next Rehab: January-March 2013."

Thanks for this . I haven't kept up with any refurb information as i could never find it on tikiman's site.

Great! Thanks! Just waiting for connection, reminding myself that flying with three kids will be worth once we are at the Poly!

Just waiting for Hurricane Sandy to make our visit here. Today was my 180 day mark - was very thankful that we still had power this morning... I was able to book all of my dining reservations without any problems.

Bring on the power outages!!!

I agree not to fax in any requests as that is a thing of the past. I always put requests in when I book our trip, and then I call back a day or two prior to arrival to verify everything. I have never done online check in, but from what I've read, if you do have requests, it's best not to do online check in because you will get a packet with everything in it upon arrival vs actually checking in/speaking with a CM. If you get assigned a room that doesn't meet any of your requests, you could ask the CM if it's possible to wait for another room, which can't be done when you do online check in. I know requests are just that and are not guaranteed, but sometimes a room that matches your request(s) might be available later in the day if you are willing to wait. With that said, I don't think there is a bad room/location at the Poly, so if you don't get your requests met, you will still have a great room/location .
Thanks for this info. I always do online checkin, but after reading this, I think I might wait. We were in Samoa last time 1st floor facing the quiet pool and I LOVED it!!! I'm hoping for the same location. Thanks for the great tip!
